Reese Front Mount Hitch --pics

Hi

I don't post alot on here but I wanted to show you a reese front mount hitch part# 65049 installed on my truck (F250). I most use it to park trailers or large boats. Some might use it for a which mount. It was $180 CND.

Installation: 4 bolts, takes 20 minutes with a floor jack.

to mount a winch up front, but not always have to carry it. I am thinking about getting a ranch hand bumper with one already built in, that way you can tranfer the winch to the rear of your vehicle if you need it there too. kinda nice to have options.

Those are some sweet bumpers you got there.

Out of curiousity, how do your air bags work after that? I don't know jack about the system or it's sensors. Lookin' for some insight.

Nice install Eric. I did a lot of aircraft moving while in the military and can relate with the front hitch.
