2007 Chevrolet Silverado New Body

Easy install took about 20 minuets. Good quality with all installation hardware needed included.


Very good product. Fast shipping.

2007 Chevrolet Silverado New Body

The Curt front mount hitch attached easily, as advertised. We have now been able to travel with our bikes loaded on front and the slide-in camper on back. Plus, it arrived quickly enough to attach and use for our next planned camping adventure!

We think it is a great product and was easy to install. Our friends saw it and we recommended etrailer to them

2008 Chevrolet Silverado

Heavy duty and heavy, I had it installed by myself (with the help of a floor jack)in less than 30 minutes, love it. Now UPS, the shipper leaves a lot to be desired. Good thing the hitch was built great because the packaging was destroyed.

Yes I still think it is a great product, no I dont use it every day but when needed its there.

2009 Chevrolet Silverado

I bought this about an year ago for my 2009 Chevy Silverado to push 28 ft trailer. This thing saves my life every time when I need to push my trailer back to the back of the driveway. I have a narrow driveway and long too. In the past I will have to try many times to back in the trailer. Now with the front hitch the back in is much more easier. However I do find one thing that is not expected, the hitch is way too low that I am not able to use my flip folder jack foot, it does not have enough clearance to make it fully stand. I have to get a jack to lift the trailer in order to have the flip folder stand to support the trailer. But for the regular trailer jack is OK.

2009 Chevrolet Silverado

Curt's front mount hitch reveiver is resonably priced, stoutly made, and finished with what appears to be a solid shiney black powder coating. I especially like the fact that the receiver is positioned just below the front license plate so no modifications are needed to the front fascia, or removal of license plate to utilize. Hitch was shipped in a stout cardboard box, but not much internal padding. This seems to be Curt's standard method, as I also purchased a 34" hitch extension and was packaged similarly. The items are not likely to become damaged in shipping, but a lil more thought and effort could be put into their shipping methods. But for the value and quality you recieve that's a minor issue. Love Curt products!!!


Install was quick and easy
Bolts that
go through frame were 1/4”too short.
Works great!

Easy to install and works great

2007 Chevy 2500 HD

Very well built, good fit and finish and very sturdy. Installed in about 1/2-hour. The "square hole spacer" for the carriage bolt had to be fed through the front of the frame rail (past the tow hook) as it was ever so slightly wider than the hole underneath the frame rail where the instructions show it being fed. I agree that the hex bolts could be about 1/4" to 1/2" longer, but once tightened the bolt is flush with the end of the nut. I'm glad I purchased this as now I can use my 12,000 lb. winch (& winch cradle) on both the front and back of my 2007.5 Chevy 2500HD.

2009 GMC Sierra

This Curt 31109 front hitch went on a 2009 GMC 2500 Sierra crew cab with a Duramax Diesel. Shipping was incredibly fast - just 1 day! The hitch appears well built and nicely finished - and it's made right here in the USA! It fit perfectly and was very easy to install. No trimming of bumper plastic was required. My wife and I are retired and we use this truck to pull a large 5th wheel trailer or carry a truck camper. We will transporting our bicycles on the front hitch. I should have done this earlier.

2008 GMC 2500 HD

Everything went as lined out in the video. I would of liked to of had longer bolts to be able to use locknuts, but went ahead and used the supplied hardware. But everything went smoothly. The only other thing I could suggest is using a little bit longer plate for the carriage bolt, as the frame on my gmc 2500hd was wide enough for the carriage bolt and metal plate to spin. I was able to get it tight enough for it to quit spinning though and get the 110lbs of torque.

All in all a good product and it fits very well.

2008 Chevrolet Silverado

I have a 2008 Silverado. The Hitch was installed in less than an hour. The pair of bolts that are installed through the frame seem to be slightly short but remember this unit is installed in shear, meaning that the loads applied to this hitch are perpendicular to the bolt, so the nut just needs to hold the bolt in place. You still need to torque to german specs "good n tight" (haha). the bolt will come flush to the nut face. All in all a very simple clean install. Im using this for a Myers Home Plow, which also installed simply.


Easy to install and works great.


Item was as described and installed easily. The bolt that fits thru the frame that holds in the tow hook should be longer in my opinion as I think the bolt should always stick out the nut a certain amount. THe fit was great and the customer suoort is excellent.

2009 Chevrolet Silverado

Arrived in one piece, although the packaging could have been better. the box should have been fitted better to the hitch as the hitch had too much room to move around in the box with the box being damaged. Box needed tape to secure the holes punched in the side of the box.

2009 Chevrolet Silverado

This hitch was installed by myself in just over one hour. Not too difficult and the video was great. The long bolts in the kit could be about 1/2 in longer. My truck is a 2009 Silverado.


Great product. Takes awhile to get


Awesome hitch! Great quality and fast shipping! Will buy from this company again! Highly recommend!

2008 Chevrolet Silverado

product looks good but the other reviews that i read the two bolts are to short. I had to buy 5 inch bolts to get more than 3 threads tight. This would be an easy fix for you to do.

2009 GMC Sierra

Great quality, installation is very easy, cost is good. Definitely happy with this product and the service.

2009 GMC Sierra

Received on time and able to install with ease after viewing the video, great product.


Easy install took about twenty minutes

2010 GMC Sierra

Easy to install works perfect on my gmc to haul small scooter

2009 Chevrolet Silverado

See what our Experts say about this CURT Front Receiver Hitch

  • Why Would Curt Hitch 31109 Seem to Be too Narrow to Install on Truck
    Sometimes hitches can get slightly bent during shipping and this can be fixed by bending the hitch back into place as long as the hitch only has a slight bend to it. If yours isn't lining up I can almost guarantee that is what happened. Some people will use open steps for leverage, vices and even car jacks to apply controlled force to bend the hitch back. You will want to look for flaking paint and physical stress marks on the hitch before and after you attempt to bend the hitch back....

  • Is Fascia Trimming Required For Installation of Curt Front Mount Hitch # 31109 on a 2010 GMC Sierra
    You are correct, the Curt Front Mount Hitch for the 2010 GMC Sierra, # 31109, does not require trimming for installation. I have provided a link to installation instructions and a video installation that you should find helpful. I have also linked a photo of the hitch installed on a 2008 Model HD Chevrolet Pickup, which is the same body style, for you to review.

  • Curt Front Hitch 31109 Compatibility with Minute Man 2 Snow Plow Mount
    In most cases a front-mount hitch and a snowplow mount will install at the same points on the vehicle frame and usually they will interfere with each other. There could be a certain combination of hitch and plow that might avoid this common-mounting-point issue but it is unlikely since both items need a very strong mounting point on the vehicle in order to function. Makers of aftermarket products do not test their products fits along with other aftermarket items since there are so many...

  • Ground Clearance & Angle of Curt Front Mounted Hitch on 2010 Chevy Silverado Super Duty
    For your 2010 Chevy Silverado Super Duty truck, the Curt Front Mounted Trailer Hitch Receiver # 31109 is a confirmed fit. The ground clearance will be dependent on your wheel size and your suspension. I reached out to my tech contact at Curt and confirmed this hitch will be right up against the bumper, so if you measure from the bottom of your bumper 2-3/4 inches, that will be your ground clearance with this hitch. The receiver will sit level as long as your truck frame is level. ...

  • Front Mount Hitch Recommendation for at 2007 Chevy Silverado 3500 That Accommodates Light Bar
    We have two front mount hitches that are confirmed as a fit for your 2007 Chevy Silverado 3500. Both of these hitches are installed directly to the vehicle frame. We do not offer a front hitch that mounts directly to the front tow hooks, but both of the front hitches mount below the tow hook locations. As long as the light bar that you already have installed on your truck and the cold air intake do not block access to the underside of the tow hook locations then either of these front...

  • Curt Front Mounted Recevier 31108 vs 31109 Fit on a 2002 Chevy Silverado
    Although the hitches look very similar, the # 31109 is for the 2nd gen 2008 Silverado like your friend's, and the # 31108 if a fit for the 1st gen, like your 2002 model. The two hitches are very similar, but the # 31109 would sit 2 inches lower on your truck than the proper fitting # 31108 would. If losing two inches of ground clearance isn't a deal breaker for you, your buddy's hitch would work fine for you. I've linked you to an install video that you might find helpful.

  • Front Hitch Option for 2005 Chevy Silverado 3500
    Due to the design of the front of your 2005 Chevy Silverado 3500 the only place you'll be able to have a front hitch opening is below the front fascia like where the Curt # 31108 installs. This would be best option we have, but if you really needed something that sits higher you'd probably need to find a fabricator who would be willing to modify the front fascia of your truck and see if they could install one higher.

Draw-Tite also offers the # 65050 which will sit up higher, just under the bumper, instead of just under the fascia, so you'll have better ground clearance at the front if you went this route.

  • Can a Front Mount Trailer Hitch be Used for a Bike Rack on a 2010 GMC Sierra 2500HD
    It is possible to use a bike rack on a front mount trailer hitch like # 31109, but you will want to consider a few things before doing so. First, it could hinder driver visibility, not much, but there is a chance that the top of the bikes will sit above the hood, so you may not be able to see as much of the road right in front of you. Second, the bikes may block the head lights or other indicating lamps on the truck which could be dangerous. If you cannot put the bikes in the rear because...
