Front mount receiver

Has anyone installed a front mount hitch receiver? Can't seem to find one online.
Thanks,
Bill

I have one on my Yukon XL. It's been 10 years and I don't remember where I got it. Install was easy as I recall. The only tricky part was I left the tiedown hooks in so there was some finagling, and I had to cut a square slot in the little air deflector under the bumper. 10 years later it still looks good. When our 4 kids were younger we carried bikes front and back for us, them and a friend or two.

(edit.. dumb response... see you have a sprinter)

The Sprinter Store in Oregon used to custom make them. They list it as discontinued, but it wouldn't hurt to ask.

Try the Sprinter Store:
Sprinter Tow Hitches
They have a front hitch halfway down the page.

You will have to cut a hole in the below-bumper effects molding to install it, though.

Saw that one Pro but it says it's discontinued. I emailed Upscale to ask why?
When they respond I'll post their answer here.

Oops, misread the Sprinter Store listing. The front receivers for the 06 and earlier sprinters was discontinued but they still make them for the 07 and later. $425 + shipping. Does require notching the bumper cover.
