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 Jeep Wrangler (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.

JK front hitch
Ok I must admit I'm a fan of Curt products. I put this on my 2014 JK Wrangler Rubicon, I made a "T-BAR" from 2" steel that goes into it and I made one for the back, now I can carry my 12' Golden Hawk canoe securely over the roof and hood of my Jeep. I thought it was a real easy install but I did change the lower bolts to 1 1/4 x1/2 with an allen head to make the install easier. Since I use my Jeep OFF ROAD I put blue LOC-TITE on all 6 bolts. BTW it works With the "Skid Row" sway bar skid plate so you can toss the plastic one in the trash. Now if Curt and Blue Ox would get together and make one with tow bar attachments that would be awesome. Two other things, does not decrease ground clearance at all at the bar behind it is 1" lower and you can stick your "High-Lift" jack in the center to raise the front end off that rock you missed when your wife was telling you to look out for the boulder the size of a house.
the Hitch is hard to put in place and the bolt is to short on the driver side because the frame have double thickness and the bottom bolt is hard to tight (no place for ratchet) i have change the bolt on the driver side and now is good but the final result is good with patience
