Front Mount Hitch.
 
Hey everyone. ive been wanting to do a few things to my 2006 1500. one of the things i want to do is put a front mount hitch on. i dont want it to stick out of the bottom of the bumper i would like for it to fit right in by that fascia peice between the bumper and the grill. any ideas on what brand would fit and look good???

Have a look at the street scenes hidden hitch, it's a low profile hitch made for rollpans and might be thin enough to fit where you want it to go. Some fab work required of course. I don't know of any 'front hitch mount' kits.

Pretty sure this is an under the bumper fit but we instal mainly Curt hitches at my shop and they all rock!!!

The link would not work when I put the truck in but just follow the drop downs and will take you to a hitch.

I just installed a Curt on my 09 it does hang down below the bumper but I don't plan on any offroading with it anyway.
Another manufacturer is Bodiak https://bodiaknet.powweb.com/store/catalog/ but they didn't offer one for my app. The pictures look like what your looking for.
Might want to have a look there....

that warn hitch looks pretty good. it says it will fit a 2002-2005. is there any difference between the frame of an 05 and an 06 1500?

i'm not really sure, but, i thought that 2002 - 2008 frames were the same
there may have been body style changes though, especially in in the front bumper area
could you post a image or 3 of your truck, we like pix

crram1500 04-28-2010 04:37 PM

i would love to put up some pics but im not sure how to go about making an album. lol

crram1500 04-28-2010 04:47 PM

i know the front bumper and headlight style was changed from 05 to 06. but from what i can tell the 2005 headlights are rounded on the bottom and they incorperated that round shape into the top of the bumber. it doesnt seem like they changed much else up there.
