Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" - 31108

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (98 Customer Reviews)

Easily attach a variety of accessories to the front of your vehicle with this fully welded, corrosion-resistant trailer hitch receiver. Perfect for winches, spare tire carriers and more.


Easy install; unobtrusive, but hitch receiver is far enough forward I can install the bike rack without needing an extension.


This was possibly the easiest hitch install I've ever done! All the holes lined up, the onle thing was two of the bolts they supplied are not long enough,I had the longer bolts in stock and finished. I haul a truck camper so needed the extra cargo space, looks like it'll work!

there was 4 bolts in the kit to replace the bolts in the tow hooks, the 2 that went into the side where the ones that where too short, they where 1 3/4" I replaced them with 2 1/4" bolts. There was a gap between the hitch mount and the frame approximately 1/16" that a washer filled that gap. I'm a retired shop owner that did auto repair and fabrication so it was an easy install.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you. The hitch manufacturer prefers to have the hardware that comes with the hitch be used for warranty purposes.

Great product easy installation reinforces your front end will definitely buy again for my next truck

2004 Chevrolet Silverado

I had been waiting to find this Curt hitch on sale for a while.
First off I get to keep the hooks that came with my 2004 Silverado Crew cab 2500HD 4x4.
Then I removed two existing bolts and loosened a third on each hook.
Using a floor jack lifted the hitch into place and threaded in the new bolts through the frame and into the hooks.
The biggest problem I had was being able to reach the bolts into the side of the frame and hooks w/out removing the air dam.
Looks GREAT!!

I know some reviews have mentioned a reduction in ground clearance but my truck is not lifted and the clearance is nearly the same as the transmission skid plate installed by the factory.

I sometimes need to get low hard to see trailers into tight spaces and I’m also looking to pick up a winch. Looking forward to many years of hard work.

This has made getting trailers parked closely and out of the way at job sites so much easier. Whish I hed it years ago!
John - 03/31/2021

2006 Chevrolet Silverado

This was the easiest installation of the 10 or more hitches that I have installed. Four bolts out and replaced with four suppler bolts and washer. No modification of the air dam needed.

I needed some washers (supplied) between the frame and the receiver as spacers. I recommended that you figure out how many you need (1 or 2 per side), then lower it down and tape them in place to hold them in place and push the bolts through the tape after you lift it back in place.

Cover the ground with a rug or cardboard to keep from scratching the receiver when it’s on the ground before you lift it into place.

Still good. No corrosion or other issues.
Matthew - 05/11/2021


Unbelievable how clean the install is for this product!! I was certain I would have to do some cutting or drilling, however not a single cut or new hole required. The product fit like it was straight from the factory ... even with the existing front Grille Guard that I have on my truck!!

I also appreciate the FAST shipping and customer service, as tracking info was emailed after the product shipped without requesting this info and the product arrived within the same week.

I've already recommended etrailer to other landscapers on, as we're always looking for front-mount solutions for spreaders and other landscape equipment.

I have to say that I absolutely LOVE this product!! It works perfect for mounting my walk-behind fertilizer spreader to the front of my truck while having the larger PermaGreen spreader on the back of my truck. Having this front-mounted hitch has allowed me to carry both of my spreaders and not sprain my back while wrestling the smaller spreader out of the bed of my truck as I had before.
Dale M - 01/28/2015


I did not get a chance to put it on right away. Now that I have put the front hitch on , it looks great. It was harder getting the original old bolts off than it was putting on the hitch. The hitch went on quickly and now I can use it to put a plow on for these snowy Ohio winters.


I purchased the front hitch for my truck. With a fifth wheel I can’t carry bikes anywhere but the front. I really don’t trust the strength of the rear bumper on these RV’s. Hitch went on easy in the garage with no alterations needed. The bikes sit a bit high but that’s not the hitch problem....
I will also use it for other functions around the truck...push/re-locate utility trailer in tight spaces, use for a rack to haul stuff like firewood etc...when back hitch is unavailable.


This hitch was great! What really saved the day was the fact that eTrailer had taken the time to make a video of how to install it. I watched it twice and she went right on. I have an old vintage Honda Trail 90 that I like to haul every now and then. Camper on the back....motorcycle out front!

2003 GMC Sierra

This is the second hitch I've ordered for my truck. This hitch was very easy to install on the front of my GMC Sierra and is almost unnoticeable, which I like. I use it to transport a small Honda Trail 90 motorcycle, and it's 9000lb rating is well above what I am asking it to do. It arrived via UPS several days after ordering, was in good shape, and only took ten minutes to install with only two different size socket wrenches. Highly recommend this unit for the front of any truck.

2004 GMC Sierra 3500

The 31108 Front Mount Hitch Receiver was a perfect match for my 2004 GMC Sierra 3500. I seemed well built and the instructions were clear and easy to understand. I installed the hitch in under 45 minutes and that includes prep time. No special tools required. See photo attached.


I would add to your instruction, if you have the factory hooks, remove the four bolts as stated and give to customer, " loosen the other two bolts on the outside of frame" this gives you a little wiggle room to start the new bolts. BUT great product and great people.


Fit great lineup no modifications happy with the results


nailed it. Easy install. All holes lined up with factory truck


This hitch mounted to tow hooks just as described, even with existing brush guard. Needed it to haul a generator the only issue was the brush guard stuck out too far so I had to buy a 12" extender. Now every thing works as planned. Shipping was fast and customer service was great.
Thank You


I was told that you price matched, that I was charged regular price and told that difference would be credited plus 10% .Not notified yet. also box showed up with hole in it will check on xmas as its a gift for anything missing.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

2006 Chevrolet Silverado

Very good quality, Heavy Duty hitch that looks easy to install.
Ian W was very helpful with my order and customer service has been great.
This hitch fits the Chevy Silverado 2500 and 3500 I believe. My Chevy is a 2006 model.
I highly recommend Curt hitches and ETRAILER.COM.

The front hitch was easy to install and has been very useful. I just wished the 2006 Chevy Silverado had more clearance as far as height goes on the front end.Mine is a 4x4 but it could sure use a lift kit. The hitch is great though!
Brian - 02/26/2020


Easy mounting . And it was good that I called before I ordered the hitch. Stacey was very helpful with the style of hitch I needed for my year and type of vehicle I have.thank you Stacey for your help!


This hitch fit like a glove, just like it was made for my truck which it was. It went in slick as a whistle in under an hours time and I was able to do the complete install by myself. An excellent product and looking forward to using it to maneuver my big trailer into the tight places I have to get it into in the very near future.


Installed in less than 15 Minutes with one person!!! I recorded the whole install with a 360 degree camera under the truck. Can't wait to get out and use it!

GMC Sierra

02 2wd GMC Sierra 2500hd. Hitch was delivered fast and fit exactly. Took about 1hr to install. I use it for a homemade storage box or a Genny depending on trip we take.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado

15 minute, piece of cake single-handed install. Instructions say cutting fascia optional on 2500. Not even close to needing to. Truck is 2005 Silverado 2500HD. Receiver sits up there nice and tight, so doesn't change ground clearances.


Fit like a glove. Easy installation.


Great delivery, installment went well.

  • Install Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, # 31108, on 03 GMC 2500 Yukon XL with skid plates
    On the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, # 31108, there is minor fascia trim required when installing on 2003 GMC 2500 Yukon XL. As far as the fitment on your vehicle with the skid plates istalled, I checked with the supplier (Curt), they said they have not heard of any problems of them fitting with factory skid plates, but if the skid plates were a dealer installed item, which is an aftermarket item, they would not know because they do not test their fitments against aftermarket...

  • Front Mount Hitch for a 2002 GMC Sierra 2500HD for using a Fisher Minute Mount Plow
    The Curt front mount hitch, part # 31108, will fit your 2002 GMC 2500. It provides a standard 2 inch receiver opening, so if that is what the Fisher plow needs, you should be set. I would double check with Fisher or the plow instructions to make sure what kind of attachment it needs. The hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 500 pounds and a gross load capacity of 5,000 pounds. I have added a link to the instructions below.

  • Is Fascia Trimming Required for Front Mount Hitch Installation on the 2005 Chevy 3500
    The directions state that Fascia trimming is optional on 2500 H.D./ 3500 models. This means that when the front mount hitch, item # 31108, is installed the bottom of the receiver tube will contact the air dam under the front bumper of your 2005 Chevrolet 3500 pickup. This contact over time will wear on the air dam, so you may decide to trim it a bit before installation of the hitch. Otherwise the hitch install is a direct bolt on installation with no drilling required. My recommendation...

  • What Front Mount Hitch Should I use for My 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500 Extended Cab Z71
    LD stands for light duty. If your truck is badged as a 1500HD, you would use Curt part # 31108 instead. If your truck is not badged with HD, then you would use the 31302 for your front mount. If you have the Vortec 4800 or Vortec 5300 V8, you definitely have an LD. The 1500HD trucks got the Vortec 6000 V8.

  • Is There a Difference Between the Curt and Draw-Tite Front Hitch for a 2005 Chevy Suburban
    The Draw-Tite front mount hitch # 65028 and the Curt Front Hitch # 31108 are very similar, but they are not the same hitch. This was not intentional, the manufacturers just so happened to come up with very similar designs for the hitch coincidentally. Since both hitches are so similar and have the same capacities I would not be able to recommend one over the other as both would work very well for you. I attached installation instructions for both product for you to check out.

  • Choosing Front Mounted Receiver for 2004 Chevy Silverado 1500
    The correct front mounted receiver for your 2004 Silverado 1500 will depend on whether its a 1500LD or a 1500HD model. How can you tell which one you have? It's very simple. If it's an HD model, the front driver and passenger side doors will have a 1500HD badge on them. If it's an LD model, there will be no badges. For the HD model, I'd recommend the Curt # 31108. If you have the LD model, go with the Curt # 31302. I've linked you to install videos for both hitches.

  • Comparison Of Draw-Tite And Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch For 2006 Chevrolet Silverado
    Since both of the front-mount trailer hitches for your 2006 Silverado have the same features and capacity I recommend going with the less-expensive option. The Draw-Tite hitch, part # 65028 and the Curt, part # 31108 use the same holes in the vehicle frame for installation and both require trimming of the fascia on some models so I recommend going with the less expensive # 65028.
