Front receivers available for our trucks sit way too low, but it's pretty easy to cut one up and make it fit perfect.

I bought this one because according to the customer pictures it fits about the same as the Curt, but it's a lot cheaper.

Out of the box they hang below the plastic valance and are just waiting to dig into the ground somewhere. I took some measurements and determined that it needed to be raised about 4in to move it into the hole in the valance.

Then, I cut the receiver tube and its bracing off the main cross tube.

And fully re-welded it in its new position with some 2in angle for support top and bottom.

Clean it up, paint and reinstall.

Cut a hole in your plastic valance. If you've measured correctly, it should fit perfect!
