Front Mount Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2001 Ford Ranger for a Snow Plow


i have a 2001 ford ranger 4/4 i want to put a front trailer hitch on for meyers snow plow on what hitch do i buy


Expert Reply:

For the 2001 Ford Ranger we have 2 options for front mount trailer hitches. Between the Draw-Tite, # 65024, that you have referenced, and the Curt, # C31063, I recommend the Draw-Tite for a few reasons. First, the Draw-Tite hitch has a higher vertical line pull capacity (500 pounds) than the Curt hitch (350 pounds).

Both hitches are rated for 9,000 pounds straight line pull but remember to check the vehicle owners manual and stay within the limits of the truck.

The Draw-Tite hitch is also a little more economically priced and would be my choice for your truck and snow plow. I have included a link to the installation instructions of both hitches for you.
