Nice! I want one!
This is what I figured would happen. I don't think I will miss the skid plate, but now I know that hitch will let me know if clearance will be an issue......It does, as previously noted, decrease front ground clearance some. I once pulled out too quickly onto a concrete road that had a high crown from a fairly steep approach angle and I can now verify the set up is very solid and will give you one hell-of-a-jolt whenever you encounter something solid with it!
I agree the tow loops look a little wimpy. I have a buddy with a welder so I may look into a set of D-rings as a replacement.I have to say, Curt's stuff is Top Notch and the powdercoating is phenomenal too... I had looked into that front hitch assy as an option to become "winchable" along with my future fabbed hybrid front tubular bumper... and I just noticed in your picture, the crossmember was "tow chain loops"? I would grind those off and weld on real beefy tow hoops and just remove the OEM tow hooks...
To tow stuff like big trailers and stuff...its pretty awesome.Just out of curiosity and not to be a d!ck but what are front hitches used for?
Good one, had never thought to do that...The front hitch also helps with launching a boat. You can see where the boat is going easier and it keeps the rear tires on a dry(er) portion of the ramp.
You just came here for the pretty pictures didn't you? :teeth:Just out of curiosity and not to be a d!ck but what are front hitches used for?
Will do tomorrow.Rolex; could you add some more pics? Curious to see how it looks head-on. Hoping to add one to my (soon to be) Titan
