Plenty of accessory options

One of the most popular uses for a front hitch is attaching a snow plow to a truck. These hitches are also perfect for adding cargo space to the vehicle with a cargo carrier. The convenience of a front mount hitch is that it maintains usage of the rear trailer hitch for towing.

Every CURT front hitch comes with a straight-line pull rating of 9,000 lbs. This makes it ideal for also mounting a tow hook or winch mount.

Note: Weight capacity is limited to the lowest-rating towing component.

Easy-to-clean receiver

Mounted close to the ground, a receiver hitch can quickly accumulate a load of dirt, debris and road grime. This is why we coat both the inside and outside of our hitches with rust-resistant Bonderite®.

We also equip our front hitches with an open-back receiver. This makes it easy to clean out the receiver tube whenever needed.

How to install a front hitch

Because CURT front mount hitches are each made vehicle-specific, installation is streamlined. In the design process, we aim to reduce the amount of drilling and modifying needed during the process as much as possible.
