Front hitch mount

I just saw a pick up truck with a swag man bike rack on front similar to mine in a 2 inch receiver on the front of the truck. I wonder if a front hitch receiver would go on front of the FR3.

It should. May require some custom welding and fab but should be able to attach it to the front of the frame. You may consider adding a second secure point so that you can keep the carrier from tilting left to right. And also be sure not to block too much air flow to the radiator. (No bicycle covers or tarps.)

Just keep in mind that nothing on the front cap is structural so you will want to go to the Ford frame. Probably voids some warranty....etc...but hey once the warranty is out on on
