Front hitch mount and 4x4

Curious if adding a front mount hitch would interfere with adding a 4x4 system (Agile Offroad or Quadvan)? My new van doesn't have one and I'd like to add one but not sure if it would somehow interfere with adding 4wd? Or should I plan on adding after I get the 4wd installed?

I have a Quigley 4x4 with a front hitch, nothing interferes and looks good.

It would not interfere.

Depends on 4x4 and the hitch.. The type that bolts on the front of the frame wouldn't affect Quigley or Agile, might affect UJOR or SMB as the leafsprung conversions use the front of the frame for the front leaf mounts, so that could interfere.

My front sway bar mounts block the standard front hitch locations. I ended up hacking it since for the most part I just put a bike rack on there and don't care about full rated towing capacity. The UJOR front bumper is another alternative. (That was my first choice, and I may go there to get a winch mount eventually anyway, but I was an idiot and sat on the issue until I needed to solve it faster than east coast freight would allow.)

Also look at the Aluminess bumpers, they have a front hitch option that should work well with any 4x4 conversion. Quadvan also makes a nice front hitch mount for the original Ford bumper that should work with any 4x4 system.

I didn't know that, but I guess if the bumper is mounting to the frame anyway it's the same. I'll check them out. Thank you.
