Best Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 2000 Mazda B4000 Pickup Truck


I have a year 2000 Mazda B4000 rebranded Ford Ranger. Your fit guide for Drawtite 65024 says year 2001+ for this hitch receiver, but I am hoping it will also fit my vehicle. I dont mind drilling extra holes if that is all that is different. Will it fit with drilling?? The very similar Curt 31063 does claim to fit the vehicle, but I would prefer the stronger Drawtite receiver.


Expert Reply:

I checked with Draw-Tite and front mount hitch # 65024 is not a fit for your 2000 Mazda B4000 pickup truck. But like you said, there is an option from Curt, # C31063. Please note that the skid shield must be removed for installation. This front mount receiver will not fit on models with a front cross-member. And it does not fit 2WD vehicles built in Canada. This is currently the only front mount option that will fit the 2000 Mazda B-series trucks.
