    So yesterday I was at lowes and a guy pulls up with D.C. Tundra. He ad all the bells an whistles under his capper - drawers and shelves hooks for fishing rods... just a bunch of stuff.

    One thing he had that I'd never seen before was a front mount trailer hitch. He said he uses it to pull his boat out of the water and he has a cargo rack that he ties his cooler on after he fishes.

    I just looked them up and I see that you can put a winch on them also.

    Dang - this truck is gonna run me broke!

    We install a lot of them at my shop and have many customers that use them for maneuvering boat trailers and a few that use them for winch carriers. Curt Manufacturing is the one I do most often. Their finish is great and you retain your factory tow hooks. The one drawback is that it's difficult to remove the skid plate for oil changes.

    A friend of mine had one on his Tundra and used it to easily move his boat around his driveway and property. I also saw a Jeep with one at a Marina, that thing was zipping around moving boat trailers like a breeze.

    Besides a winch, a cargo carrier can also be put in there if you have a bike rack or trailer on the rear hitch and need more space.

    Pretty functional if you can get the use out of it.

    Not nearly enough room here!
    You could pull it off and cut a hole with a hinged door.[​IMG]
