Polaris Part # 2878846 list $119.99.
I have one on my unit, the quality of it is ok, IMO the receiver tube could be made out of thicker material, it seems thin to me. Also the ID of the tube could be smaller, the hitch fits somewhat loose on mine.

Side Note: to the best of my knowledge as far as the front end goes (hitch mounting area) there is no difference between the Crew and XP.

Do you think it is strong enough for about 75lbs? The feeder weighs about 25lbs and 50lb of corn In it. Or should I not waste my time on it

Yes, will work just fine. It will handle a lot more.
That was just my opinion on the quality, just wanting to point out what I thought of it.

KFI Lower Hitch Receiver, part # 105475 is what I used for my 2014 Ranger 900. It uses a lower position which preserves the normal winch location which would be occupied if you used the upper hitch receiver #101080.

This is designed for a snow plow, and should be adequate for a corn feeder. I am using it for the LA Guard Dog (trailer version) trailer tie-down system.

I found it for $77.97 plus shipping at ruralking.com.

I had a 100lb all seasons that i used on my truck before i got the polaris and sold it because it was so big and heavy. We have a cheap everlast hanging off the front brush guard but im not a fan of the feeder because it dribbles corn all over the place if you dont close it everytime. i am thinking of getting the front receiver and a 50lb all seasons or a 50lb lamco.

I think the rear mounting would be better, when you run out you can refill right from the bed.

We have always had front mount feeders I don't like feeders in the rear mount with the mud and we use our bed to much loading deer and stuff it's in the way
