    Because I have a fisher plow on my 2005 dodge Ram 3500 CTD and my plow plates bolt to where a hidden hitch would go,I couldnt use any aftermarket hidden hitches.
    The other choice was the Bodiak and have heard about them twisting.
    So I got a used plow setup and attached a hitch to the lower mounts and have a removeable hitch setup that will hold ANY weight I will ever need.

    Dumb question...Why would you need a front hitch if you have a pickup and a rear hitch?

    Actually, a front has a lot of benefits. Especially when off roading.

    Very nice. I want to do something similar, maybe with a winch mount on top of the hitch. I have one problem though, I don't know where I can find an old minute mount I frame...

    They are real good if you have a few trailers and need to jockey them around often. We move 2 different enclosed trailers, a boat, and a camper around every spring and fall. Pretty sleek.
