hFront High Clearance Hitch for 3rd Gen Toyota 4Runners with stock "fat lip" bumper 99-2002
Looking for a way to mount a front winch plate, carry an additional cargo basket, or just get a sturdy centered recovery point on the front of your 99-2002 3rd Gen 4Runner? Look no further! Next Venture Motorsports has you covered for your next adventure with this high clearance, frame mounted, front hitch!
CNC Laser Cut and CNC Press Formed Brackets tie a 3X3 formed crossmember with a 2" receiver into the front frame rails of your 4Runner while allowing you to retain the factory front bumper.
- Minimal ground clearance loss - everything sits up higher then the bottom of the factory tow hook.
- Brackets tie into the stock tow hook mounting locations, and bumper mounting locations.
- Installation requires removal of 4 of the existing bumper mounting nuts with a grinder or drill. 2 existing holes may need to be drilled out to larger size per side. The remainder of the installation can be completed with hand tools. Clearance in the bumper for the hitch can be completed using a utility knife.
- License plate can still be installed in factory location over bumper to hide receiver.
- All hardware (metric, Class 10.9 Steel and Standard Grade 8 where applicable) is included.
- Instructions can be viewed be clicking here.
I have this front hitch on my 2000 4Runner that we use at the deer lease. We use it to carry coolers, supplies, materials, etc. and works absolutely great. The craftsmanship and build quality is excellent. It is solid! Easy to install yourself. My 9 year old son and I knocked it out in a few hours from start to finish. NV provides detailed, easy to follow instructions.

parts inspired by the trail
Our team got into the game after rock crawling, wrenching, fabricating and being inspired to design and build parts for what we love to do: hit the trail.
what our customers are saying
They invited me and my whole crew in for a tour of the facility on our way to Moab. These guys not only produce amazing armor for your Jeep, they are really good people. So, I’ve been running their rear diff skid for 9 months and it has easily held up to everything I’ve thrown at it.Gary Swogger
After this go around with Moab and Holy cross, the diff skids did their job and protected my Jeep. My rear aluminum bumper performed phenomenally on the trail!Rennato Lopez

Can’t say enough about Dan and his ultra skilled team! Dan was able to get us in for a skidplate with UHMW & sliders for our JKUR. The fit, finish and quality are just out of this world! Can you say “stacked dimes”? Absolutely gorgeous welds…Lance Wende
2 years later I'm writing this review. I've beaten the crap out of this thing hitting rocks, winching, draging it down obstacles, and now exposed to the Florida elements. The bumper looks like it did the day they sent it. You will not find a better company to work with that cares about their clients and their products!Kelly Colwell

My rear Next Venture diff skid takes a beating! Best rear diff skid available. Well done!Lee Bower
Quality is amazing, items fit perfectly. Couldn't be more happy; these are gonna help out a lot between the tons and LS1.Lakeland, FL
Without a doubt, Next Venture Motorsports is my first stop for epic Jeep parts. Their JL aluminum front and rear featherweight bumpers are solidly built, easy enough to install, and crafted to perfection. I can't wait for more products for my 2 door JL!Michael Collette
AWESOME quality and customer service. 2021 Jeep 4xe! Return customer and will return again. Thank You Dan!Columbia, SC
I like it because it lets you use factory fog lights if you want. They also have a featherweight aluminum option that doesn't have holes for fogs and is essentially a stubby bumper. I am very pleased with all of their stuff. [JL/JT Adventure Series Bumper]Author's name
