Front Hitch for 04 E350 Quigley

All,
Is there a factory made front hitch that will work for 04 Quigley?

I plan to haul some river tubes on a platform.

Thanks!

I would assume any Econoline front hitch would work in your Quigley, as they attach to the frame rails behind the bumper and don’t interfere with the suspension at all as far as I recall (mine is off my van at the moment).

I put a Reese/Draw-Tite 65001 front hitch on both my 2005 and 2006 E350 Quigley. The Quigley conversion did not interfere in any way. I do recall opening a hole on either side of the frame to assist with getting the bolts into the frame channel.

I bought the curt setup only because I found it cheaper when I was looking. Both the options available have the same ratings so it comes down to whichever one you can find the best deal on.

And is it just me or have the prices on both Reese and curt doubled? I swear I only paid around a hundred bucks when I bought mine. Now I gotta go find my receipt...

Hope everyone is well in forum land! Wondering if anyone has added a front hitch to a MG/Expo conversion? When UJ was doing it they order one at my request, but said it wouldn't fit not enough room or something?

Pretty sure the leaf spring hangers on the uj conversions take up the space where the front hitch needs installed. Don’t see any reason a front receiver wouldn’t work with the expo kit.
