CURT Front Mount Hitch #31078


SKU: 612314038015 Category:


CURT front mount hitches add functionality to the front end of your vehicle. 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 or when parking a trailer into a tight spot, your trailer can be hitched up to the front hitch receiver, giving you better control. Some of the other accessories that can be used with a front mount hitch are the CURT step pad, skid shield, winch mount, spare tire mount and license plate holder.

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 5,000 lbs. and a tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs. It is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Ford F-250 Super Duty and F-350 Super Duty (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at It also comes with all necessary hardware for a complete installation.

At CURT, we do not see our front mount hitches as secondary to our rear mount hitches. We back them up with the same one-year finish warranty and limited lifetime warranty to give you peace of mind wherever adventure takes you.
