  • Can Timbren Helper Springs be Used on a 1988 Ford Ranger 4x4 with 3 Inch Lift
  • Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement # TFRR0504A is designed for a stock 1988 Ford Ranger 4x4 but they do make spacers to use the system with a lifted truck. The spacer # A25723-90AH00 is 1 inch tall so if the distance between the top of the axle and bottom of the frame is 3 inches more on your truck than stock you would need a total of 6 spacers. Longer bolts will also be needed but will have to be obtained locally.

  • Will the PowerTrac Brake Controller Work with 2009 Ford F-150 factory Brake Control Wiring Harness
  • Yes, you can use brake controller # 39523 with the Ford brake controller wiring harness on your 2009 F-150. But you will have to cut off the connector on the brake controller and hardwire it to the Ford harness by function. The Ford harness should be labeled as to the functions of the wires. The brake controller uses white for ground, black for 12 volt power, blue for output to the trailer brakes, and red for input from the brake switch. The brake controller will not have any effect...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2007 Ford Edge
  • Your bike dealer is right about 1 thing; most spoilers on vehicles such as your 2007 Ford Edge are not meant to support weight. That is why Hollywood Racks came up with the Over-The-Top Rack # HRF2-3. This rack has an additional upper arm piece to move the top straps up and over the spoiler so no weight is put on it. You can use this rack whether or not the vehicle has a roof rack; you would just use the included hatch anchors. I have linked a video review of this bike rack for you. There...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for 2003 Winnebago Adventurer on Ford F-53 Chassis
  • Brake controllers are not vehicle-specific, so you can install whichever one has the features you want in the price range you prefer. Among the best options I can suggest is the Tekonsha Prodigy P3, part # 90195. This unit consistently sells very well because it is easy to set-up, straightforward in operation and has been proven to be exceptionally reliable. Have a look at our customers' ratings to see what purchasers say about it. The base vehicle that the Winnebago Adventurer is built...

  • Adding a Brake Controller to a 2012 Ford F-150 with Factory 4-Way Trailer Connector
  • You mentioned that the connector at the rear of your 2012 Ford F-150 does not have the additional wires needed to hardwire in a 7-Way trailer connector. I just want to make sure you are looking in the right place. If you follow the factory 4-Way wiring forward under the truck it plugs into another connector. If you pull back the covering on the wiring to that connector that is where you should find the additional wiring needed to wire in the 7-Way you have or our # 37185. But if it is...

  • Are Westin Lighted Running Boards Replacements for 1998 Ford Expedition Factory Running Boards
  • I could not find anything indicating the manufacturer of the OEM lighted running boards on your 1998 Ford Expedition but I am confident that they were not the Westin brand or # 27-0015-1815. It is possible that the Westin boards will fit the mounts you have now but even if they don't the kit does come with mounting brackets. The same goes for the connectors for the lights; if they don't work with what is already on the vehicle then they can still be installed with the included parts.

  • Second 4-Way Wiring Harness For 2016 Ford F-150

I reached out to my contact at Cequent and the T-One # 118384 should fit without issue if you want the second 4 way in line.

  • Replacement Pin and Pipe Mount for 3K Pipe Mount Swivel Trailer Jack TJP-5002S-B

Worse case scenario a little filing may need to be done on the pipe mount.

  • Class S Tire Chains Under 10mm Tall for a 2016 Ford Explorer XLT

Even though cables # PW2029C are Class S rated the cross chains are a little over 12mm in diameter. A better option is to use Titan chains # TC2319 which have a chain link thickness of 3.7mm.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-350 with Factory Rail Kit
  • The Andersen Ultimate fifth wheel adapters are nice but they aren't ideal for short bed trucks as they will not give the needed clearance to make tight turns. What I would recommend is the Demco Hijacker part # DM8550038 which fits the factory rail kit package without the use of an adapter and automatically slides back as you make tight turns to provide you with the needed clearance to make sharp turns. This hitch also has a 21k capacity.
