Front Hitch PICS

Looking to add a front receiver to my 2013 F350 to hold my fishing rod rack. Does anyone have pics of one installed...I am curious how low it sits off the ground. I found one that bolts to the tow hooks. Don't really like the way it looks though. Thanks

I had a guy make these up for me. Cost less and felt safer when wife drove my truck. I put my 15 fter in and have zero clearance issues. You can also get a removable rod holder that bolts to under rails of your bed from side to side.

Yeah I built something similar to those on a previous truck. I am looking more for the front receiver deal not only as a road rack holder but I want to be able to hook up to a trailer if need be.

I'm looking at a Draw-Tite because it is rated for 9000 lbs pull and the Curt only 5000. I want to use mine for a winch.

I've seen a few superdutys on the beach already I'll try to snap a pic for you. IIRC the bottom most point is about half way down the air dam. So maybe 1ft or so.... On the fishing side ... few shorts on outgoing ..how's it looking down there

I have a Curt I think that I just installed a week ago on mine and will try to get you a pic when I can. I use mine for a goal post to carry the kayak on while towing the 5th wheel. And when not in use I keep one of the steps in it, makes it a lot easier to see the engine compartment.
