10a front mount receiver hitch

Nobody makes a front mount receiver hitch for a 10A/X FRONT bumper????????
I would buy one and think others would also if the part was available.
good place for cooler, bike rack, fishing poles, ect.

What did Curt have to say?

Did you look at how your bumper attaches to the frame rails? Curt isn't going to know or recommend every match out there. I had a Pathfinder and they said they didn't have a receiver for it, but the Pathfinder has the same front rails as the Frontier. Worked like a charm.

Sometimes you can work it out with a measuring tape and observation.

Sometimes you can't know until you have the piece in hand.

Thank you for asking the following question:

Question: Does the Curt 31432 or Drawtite front bumper hitch work with a 2013 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 10A or 2014 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon X front bumper?

Answer: The problem is that on the 10th Anniversary edition of the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon there is a different style bumper than on regular models. It may or may not also come with a winch. Because of this different bumper none of the front mount hitches will fit. If by chance your model has the regular bumper the front mount hitches would fit (# 65055 or # 31432).

The same goes for the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon X. The hitches will also not fit if the vehicle has any kind of tube style bumper.

I know its not directly from CURT, but these people have a lot of experience with trailer hitches. I have a feeling I will get the same answer from CURT but still have some hope.

Maybe Maximus-3 will make one after all.

Lots more 10A, X and Hard Rocks with the same bumper with no solution for front mount reciever hitch. Is there any interest from other for a front hitch? I wish somebody would make one that is compatible....
