CURT front mount trailer hitches allow you to use the front end of your vehicle for various towing applications. They can be used for mounting a winch, a snow plow, a number of hitch-mounted accessories and can even be used for some towing applications. When space is limited, a front hitch is commonly used to hold a cargo carrier, freeing up space inside the vehicle for extra cargo and making the rear mount receiver available to pull a trailer. At the boat ramp, your boat trailer can be hitched up to the front hitch receiver, giving you better control over the trailer as you launch. Some of the other accessories that can be used with a front mount hitch are the CURT step pad, license plate holder, spare tire mount and skid shield.
A front mount hitch bolts onto the underside of the vehicle frame just like a rear mount hitch; only, it is placed in the front of the vehicle, providing a useful receiver tube to accept a 2" x 2" shank. They are commonly used on trucks, vans and SUVs. This CURT front mount trailer hitch features a gross trailer weight capacity of 3,500 lbs. and a tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs. It is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Toyota Tacoma (including X-Runner and Pre-Runner) (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at curtmfg.com). It comes with all necessary hardware for a complete installation.
At CURT, we do not see our front receiver hitches as a backburner item to our rear mount hitches. We back them up with a one-year finish warranty and limited lifetime warranty to give you peace of mind on and off the road.

Everything Perfectly Matched Up
Just received a front receiver mount for a Toyota Tacoma 2012. I was skeptical when ordering, wondering how many holes I'd really have to drill, re-drill, elongate, metal to cut and grind, etc. I just installed it and everything perfectly matched up, it was easier than I expected, so thanks for having everything placed and drilled perfectly. I'll certainly buy from this company in the future.
Just wanted to drop you a line about the hitch I bought from your company. I'm a Toyota Tacoma owner and I needed a hitch for the front of my truck. I looked your company up on line to get information on pricing and to see how much work it was going to take to put it on. Much to my amazement it only took me about 45 minutes from start to finish. (If I had been in a hurry I could do it in 15 minutes.) Thanks for the easy to read and follow instructions. The next time I need a hitch I will be coming to CURT Mfg. Thank you again, P.S. I use the front mount hitch for a snowplow, it works great.
