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, different accessories and can even be used for some towing applications. When space is limited, a front mount 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 mount 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 step pad, license plate holder, spare tire mount and the CURT 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 in. x 2 in. shank. CURT front mount hitches come in towing capacities of up to 3,000 lbs., 3,500 lbs. and 5,000 lbs. and can tow up to 9,000 lbs. for a straight line pull. They are specifically designed to mount on trucks, vans and SUVs. In general, sedans, coupes and other cars do not allow adequate viewing space for safe driving if a front mount accessory were to be attached.
