Difference Between Curt C31063 and Draw-Tite 65024 Front Mounted Receivers for 2002 Ford Ranger


hello , Could you tell me what the difference is between the curt front hitch 31063 and the Draw-Tite 65024 ? Thank you


Expert Reply:

Both the Curt # C31063 and the Draw-Tite # 65024 front mounted receivers are fits for multiple model years of the Ford Ranger and Mazda B Series trucks. Both would be a fit for your 2002 Ford Ranger.

Once installed, the receiver tube of both hitches would sit below the front bumper as shown in the provided photo but the Curt model would sit approximately one inch closer to the underside of the bumper.

The Draw-Tite has a higher vertical load capacity at 500 lbs versus the 350 lb provided by the Curt, primarily because the Draw-Tite attaches to the frame with 6 fasteners, while the Curt uses 4.

If you're looking for something with a higher vertical load capacity, the Draw-Tite would be the way to go, but if you'd prefer something that would provide better ground clearance, the Curt is what I'd recommend.
