I searched multiple forums but found no information so I'm asking here. The subject is FRONT trailer hitch.

I'm considering a 1st or 2nd Gen MDX as a tow vehicle. I like them better than the Pilots for various reasons. I need a Front trailer hitch.

Front hitches are made for 1st Gen Pilots, and the same part number fits the 1st Gen Ridgeline. It's unclear to me whether it will fit 1st G MDX, but given the shared structure with the Pilot, you would assume it would fit. Don't know that definitively though, which is why I ask.

Trailer hitch dealers look at me like I'm a alien when I ask the question. Most are unfamiliar with front hitches to begin with.

No. Looking for the ability to hold a personal (non-commercial) snow plow, as well as for easier boat trailer parking in tight quarters.

The 2nd Gen Pilot has such a front hitch and the basic structure of the 2 vehicles is largely the same.

I'm also interested hearing the answer to this. I want to use the front hitch to hold a winch basket. So when I'm in driving in snowy roads/off roads in Utah winter, I have a shot at recovering myself.

The pilot model for a Curt front hitch is: 33328. I emailed Curt to ask if they if they knew if it would fit, or if it would not. they didn't know.

I'll probably end up buying it at risk.

Hey Thanks for the instructions.

I went out and looked under the car. It looks like similar holes are certainly there. Is there interference or some other difference? TBD....
