Expert Answers about Ford


  • What Type of Fuel Mileage Savings will the Airaid Throttle Body Spacer # AR1002 Give my 2004 F-150
  • While I am normally very skeptical of fuel savings products like the # AR1002 that you referenced. We had a customer come back and tell us that after monitoring their fuel mileage for the first 1,000 miles of their road trip without the # AR1002 they noticed an additional mile per gallon on the next 1,000 miles of the trip with the # AR1002 installed. While we can't absolutely guarantee you will see the same result I would be very surprised if you didn't see the same results if you had...

  • Programmer Recommendation to Improve Fuel Mileage on a 2014 Ford F-250 Powerstroke
  • Programmers for diesel trucks like your 2014 Ford F-250 with a Powerstroke diesel engine are a great way to improve fuel mileage while towing. For one around your price range I would recommend the Superchips Flashpaq Performance Tuner # SU1842. This would give you plenty of additional power and fuel mileage. I have spoken with our contacts at Superchips, the following answer is a direct quote. Many of our customers ask, Will your product void my vehicles manufacturer’s warranty?...

  • Floor Mats Recommendation for a 2013 Ford Winnebago Access Motor Home
  • If your 2013 Winnebago is actually built on a Ford E-450 van chassis yes, the # HL33251 would be the correct floor mats for you. If instead it is built on a F-450 chassis like you said you would instead want the # HL53301 instead.

  • Towing Mirror Recommendation for a 2014 Ford F-150
  • Yes, we have towing mirrors that are confirmed to fit your 2014 Ford F-150. Check out the CIPA mirrors part # CM11800. These are confirmed to fit your vehicle and would work well to give you a better viewing angle behind you while towing. I attached an install video to the right for these mirrors on a 2014 Ford F-150 just like yours.

  • Grease Maintenance for the Reese Select Plus Hitch # RP30081
  • Basically you would want to grease the Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch # RP30081 with the two zerk fittings you referenced and then also apply grease to all of the moving parts of the head assembly and center section every 12 months. It's not defined exactly where the grease should be applied, but it is recommended that you apply grease to all contact points of the hitch and areas that pivot or move in the head and center section. I would recommend white lithium grease like Lubrimatic # L11354...

  • Can a Hitch from a Dodge Durango be Modified to Fit a Ford Ranger
  • Trailer hitches are custom fit and vehicle specific so you would not be able to modify or adapt a hitch to fit a vehicle it was not designed for and have it still be safe for use. You would want to stick with the appropriate hitch for the vehicle. You could either leave the hitch on the Dodge Durango or remove the hitch and sell it to offset the cost of the Ford Ranger hitch. Draw-Tite hitch # 75081 fits the 1998 to 2003 Dodge Durango. For a 2002 Ford Ranger you can use # 75082 that...

  • Where to Find the Orange 12 Volt Power Wire for Wiring a 7-Way on a 2010 Ford Expedition
  • Follow the 4-way trailer connector wires from the trailer connector to the front of the vehicle. These wires connect to a factory plug along the frame rail, usually on the driver's side, between the back tires and the rear bumper (see attached picture). The factory plug should be mated to another connector which has wiring that continues back toward the bumper. There are more wires coming from the front of the vehicle than there are coming out toward the 4-Way plug. Ford wires the front...

  • How to Install a 7-Way on a 2010 Ford Expedition EL with a 4-Way
  • The 2010 Ford Expedition should have a round connector at the rear of the vehicle where your 4 pin plug is plugged in. If there is a round connector there you can use the Replacement Multi-Tow 7-Way and 4 Pole Trailer Connector, item # 20119, to replace the 4-Way OEM connector on your Expedition. If your Expedition does not have the mating round connector under the rear of the vehicle you will need to use a 4-Way to 7-Way adapter like item # 37185, to provide a 7-Way connector at the...

  • Will a Programmer Hurt a 1999 Powerstroke and/or a 2008 Powerstroke Ford Truck
  • That really depends on the current condition of both of your trucks and how you plan on using the additional power that the # EP16030 would give either of your trucks. If both trucks are in good mechanical condition and you don't abuse either truck too hard with the programmer turned all the way up you should be fine. If your transmissions are hurt and you go and enter into a truck pull contest with the programmer turned all the way up you would be asking for trouble. Also, you should...

  • Recommended Air Suspension Enhancement System For 2015 Ford F-350 Super Duty
  • First you will want to take a look under the truck and see where the mounting locations for the factory 5th wheel prep package are on your 2015 Ford F-350 Super Duty. If they are installed on the outside of the frame and on the upper half, a suspension kit like part # F2535 will fit. Using a suspension enhancement system will not increase the weight-carrying capacity. They are intended to help keep your truck level and reduce the strain on your suspension system when carrying heavy loads...

  • Recommended Trailing Hitch and Wiring for a 2011 Ford Explorer
  • Our most popular trailer hitch for your 2011 Ford Explorer is the Curt # C13100. It is a Class-III hitch and has a towing capacity of 4,000 pounds. It's a bolt on application so no drilling is required. In order for you to double-check if you have an existing towing package or not, is to have your local Ford dealer run your VIN. On that note, the wiring harness recommended if you have a tow package is Curt # C56172 as the T-connector plugs directly into your existing wiring. If you...

  • How to Determine the Right Replacement Pin Box Needed for a 2004 Montana Mountaineer 318 BHM
  • There should be a plate or sticker on the pin box of your trailer that lists what pin box manufacturer and model number is on the trailer. With that information you can pick out the correct Trailair pin box. If you don't have the plate or sticker, you will need to measure the bolt holes of the pin box to determine which one you have. I have included a link to the pin boxes we offer and an FAQ that shows how to measure a pin box for you to view.

  • 2014 Ford Fiesta Titanium Flat Towing Parts Recommendation
  • First you will need to start with a base plate kit for the 2014 Ford Fiesta, for that you will want the Roadmaster Base Plate kit part # RM-524438-4. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. The most popular compatible tow bar is the Falcon 2, # RM-520 . For safety cables you can use # RM-643 . The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground. For lighting you can...

  • Adding a Second 7-Way and LED Light Strip to the Back of a 2011 Ford F-150
  • A 4-Way would not work anyway because a 4-Way flat trailer connector does not have a reverse light function. What you could do is use wiring harness # 41157. It will tee in line with your factory connectors and provide an additional 7-Way trailer connector. For an LED light strip for the back of your 2011 Ford F-150 that has a reverse function we have # BLS-1103 from Pilot, # P9000960 from Putco, and # RA960136 from Rampage. These are all 60 inch long models. We also have # 360438 which...

  • Need Tire Chain Rated 10mm or Less for 2015 Ford Explorer
  • I recommend taking a look at the Titan Chain Tire Chains, # TC2319, for your 2015 Ford Explorer. These square-link, diamond-pattern tire chains provide excellent traction in snow and ice and fit your 245/60R18 size tires. I went to our warehouse to take a measurement of these chains and found that they are 7.08 mm which would meet the 10 mm or less restriction listed in your owner's manual.

I attached installation instructions and a link to an installation video of this product on a similar vehicle. I also attached an FAQ article on gooseneck hitches below for you to check out.

  • Recommended Grille Insert For 2015 Ford F-450 Super Duty
  • If you do not wish to do any cutting on your 2015 Ford F-450, I recommend the Putco Boss Grille insert, part # P270531B. This is a quick and easy installation and fits over your existing grille. This grille insert is made of a Black Powder Coated Alumninum and all hardware is included. If you prefer the Putco Designer FX Grille Insert, part # P64414, you will need to remove the factory grille and use a cutting tool to remove the factory grille from it's frame.

  • Sounds like you have the Hide-a-Gooseneck Hitch # 9460-48 in the bed of your 2005 Ford F-250. The only fifth wheel adapter you can use that will allow you to retain your gooseneck hitch is the Hi-Rise part # 9480. This will install in the gooseneck hitch and will provide you with a fifth wheel hitch. There's no way to use your Husky hitch with your gooseneck hitch.

  • Best Tune Setting To Use with the Bully Dog Triple Dog GT on a 2006 Ford F-150
  • The highest setting (the premium setting), would be the setting you would want to use with the BullyDog Programmer # BY40410FL on your 2006 Ford F-150. This setting requires the use of a minimum octane fuel of 91, but it will provide you with the best power gains. In most situations the stock shift points are the best to use, but after doing a little research it looks like letting the truck shift at 500 higher rpms than stock is the best setting for wide open throttle shifting.

Check out the install video I attached for more info. This would go great with your P3 Brake Controller # 90195 that would install with the # 3035-P.

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a Heavy Boat Trailer with C-Channel Frame

This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached an FAQ on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. Based on the weight of your trailer you will need a higher rated system, something like the # RP66130 could work as long as your tongue weight fell within it's range, 800...

You would either want to remove the trolling motor before you install the cover or come up with a way to protect the cover from the blades of it.

  • Are the Mounting Brackets Fixed or Adjustable on the Blue Ox 3-Receiver Trailer Hitch
  • The mounting brackets that come with the Blue Ox 3-receiver hitch # SC9000 are not fixed meaning you can adjust them before permanently installing the hitch. This particular hitch is designed only for Class A motor homes that have frame rails that extend all the way back to the end of the vehicle. Welded on extensions will not work. I have linked the installation instructions for you.

  • Can the Westin Fey Diamondstep Rear Bumper for a 1996 Ford F-150 Tow a 4,000 Pound Trailer
  • The Westin Fey Diamondstep Rear Bumper with installation kit # 20002-92230 is rated for 800 pounds tongue weight and 8,000 pounds gross trailer weight. However, you will need to consult the truck owners manual to determine the towing capacity of your 1996 Ford 1-50. Whichever is lower, the bumper or the truck, is the capacity you need to go by. Another option is to just install a higher rated trailer hitch, # 75038, which is rated for 800/8,000 pounds as well. But again you will go by...

  • Will B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Fit Factory Towing Prep Package On 2015 Ford F-450
  • I do have a couple of options that will work for you and a 2015 Ford F-450. My recommendation is to reduce the dealer cost and install a B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit, part # BWGNRK1111. This would give you the gooseneck hitch in the bed of your truck and allow you to use the B&W Companion, part # BWRVK3400-5W you already have. Since the B&W Companion will not fit another manufacturer's system the other option would be to have the OEM...

For the gooseneck ball, you'd just need the Reese # RP30137. If your hitch is the Traditional model, I'm not aware of a solution we offer that would allow the hitch to work with the in-bed pucks. The best practice is to use a fifth wheel hitch for a fifth wheel trailer, and a gooseneck hitch for a gooseneck trailer. Using adapters to tow a Fifth Wheel...

  • Just by the date I cannot determine which controller it is because there were different models at that time. If it is a Voyager then it could be either a 9030 or a 9035. The 9030 was designed for up to 2 axle trailers (4 brake assemblies maximum). The 9035 was the Voyager XP and could be used with up to 4 axle trailers (8 brake assemblies). The newest version is # 39510 which can also be used on trailer with up to 4 axles/8 brake assemblies.

  • Can Brophy D-Ring Tie Downs # SR15-C be Welded Rather Than Bolted on as Intended
  • The Brophy D-Ring Tie Downs # SR15-C that you referenced is intended for bolt-on installation. Its 5000-lb capacity rating is based on this intended installation method. However, you certainly could cut down their length from 3-1/2 to 2-inches and weld them into place but you will need to be careful to do the welding in a well-ventilated area since zinc-plated material can give off fumes that could be harmful to breathe. Also be aware that the finish of the welded parts will be discolored...

The Glacier V-Trac Cable Snow Tire Chains # PW2114V that you referenced has been confirmed to fit a 275/65-20 tire size so it would work for you.

The Roadmaster # RM-1139-145 Anti-Sway bar you referenced will indeed fit your motorhome if it's equipped with the Dana 150 rear axle. If you don't have the Dana 150 rear axle, you'd use the # RM-1139-143 which will be used in addition to the factory anti-sway bar.

If it does, the connector that the controller would plug into is clipped to the rear of the small cubbyhole or coin tray in the dash. You'll access the connector by removing the coin tray. If the van doesn't have the factory 7-way, you'll need to hardwire the brake controller using our Install Kit, part # ETBC7. If your vehicle is a motorhome on a van cutaway chassis,...

  • 1999 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer Trailer Connector
  • In my research, I wasn't able to find out definitively if all the Eddie Bauer Explorers included a trailer connector. Some 1999 models were equipped with a towing package which included the 4-pole trailer connector. What I read seemed to indicate that if the vehicle was equipped with the factory trailer hitch, it'll have the factory wiring. Determining how your particular vehicle is equipped would be very simple. Look behind the rear bumper on the passenger side of the vehicle for a...

  • Why Does the Bully Backup Light Turn Off Immediately When Vehicle is Put in Reverse
  • It sounds like the circuit you have tapped into to power the # PL-807 doesn't have the amperage rating to power it. A 55 watt bulb like what this light has will draw 4.5 amps. What I would recommend you try instead is tapping into the reverse light circuit of the trailer connector at the rear of your 2014 Ford F-150 Lariat. This will be the center pin of the 7-way connector.

  • Difference Between Bulldog Powder Coated and Zinc Finish 5,000 Pound A-Frame Trailer Jacks
  • The difference is just as you have said. Bulldog jack # BD1700100317 is powder coated while # BD1700100301 has a zinc finish which makes it better for marine applications. Both are rated for 5,000 pounds, have 15 inches of lift, and install the same way with the same 3-hole mounting flange. I have linked video reviews for each jack for you.

  • Instructions to Wire Dump Trailer with Electric Brakes
  • I would use the RV-Style Trailer Connector, # PK12706, which you reference, and install the wires in the proper locations in the 7-Way connector. Our wiring page, see link, has photos that detail the wiring configuration of the 7-Way RV trailer connector for you to check out. You will need to test the functions of each wire using a 12 volt battery to determine their function. Once you know the function, you can use our trailer connector wiring diagram to make the proper connections.

  • Will Firestone Air Bags from a 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 Fit a 2012 Ford F-250

The kits are not interchangeable between the two trucks. All 3 kits do use the same air bags but everything else is different.

  • Installation Instructions for Reese Universal Base Rail Kit on 1989 Ford F250 Long Bed
  • At the present time we do not have a video showing the installation of # RP30035 on a 1989 Ford F250 long bed. However I have attached the installation instructions for part # RP30035 for you at right. The rear rails should sit 32-1/2" from the rear edge of the truck.

It is as simple as that. See...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution/Sway Control System for 30-Ft. 6K Trailer Towed by 2010 F-250 V8
  • The key to selecting the correct weight distribution/sway control system is to know your trailer's actual fully-loaded ready-to-tow tongue weight just as it will be when you head out - meaning full water and propane tanks, supplies, gear, toys (and beer!) all loaded. Sherline makes a handy scale for measuring tongue weight, part # 5780, but there are other ways to measure that are outlined in the linked article. Total tongue weight must also include the weight of anything in the truck...

  • Firestone Air Bag Kit Recommendation for a Diesel 2012 Ford F-250 4x4
  • We get this question occasionally and what our contacts at Firestone always advise is to just go ahead and get a new kit designed specifically for your vehicle like the # F2535 since you have a diesel engine in your 2012 Ford F-250. The # F2550 would be the correct kit if you had a gas engine. By the time you pieced together all the brackets and hardware it would cost more than just buying the new kit, plus you will be saving yourself the headache of picking out all of the components.

  • Brake Controller Recommendation and Install for a 2014 Ford F-150
  • If you have a factory 7-way connector at the rear of your 2014 Ford F-150 I would recommend the Curt Brake Controller part # C51140 and the install harness part # C51436. These two parts will make installation very easy as the harness plugs into the controller and then the other end plugs into the port under your dash. If you have a factory 4-way connection at the rear of your vehicle you will also need the part # 37185 to complete the install. Check out the FAQ article to the right...

This is one of the nicest hitches on the market that would be an excellent choice for you.

  • Is the Rampage Trail Can Locking Toolbox # RA86619 Weatherproof
  • The design of the Rampage Trail Can Locking Toolbox # RA86619 would prevent most moisture from getting into the contents of the box. But there isn't any type of moisture seals on the drawers or lid so I wouldn't leave it out in the rain if you can avoid it. It will be basically just as weather proof as a normal toolbox. I attached a review video for more information for you to check out.

Use the diagram I attached to the right for more info. The problem could be as simple as corrosion on the connector that needs to be cleaned off (inside or outside of the connector), or it could be that the wires of the connector have shorted...

You will need to contact where you purchased this hitch from and tell them you are missing the side brackets. The # BWGNRK1108 would be the correct hitch for your vehicle, you might verify that is the part number you have. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out.

  • Possible Ladder Rack Solution for a 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

The MaxxTow Ladder Racks # MT70386 is width adjustable from 52 to 71 inches so it could potentially fit your vehicle. You will need to measure your truck bed to be sure though.

  • Best Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Ford Explorer

What makes this rack far superior to the others is the attachment system. It uses 4 retractable coated steel cables to attach to the vehicle rather than 6 nylon straps like other racks. This makes installation quick and easy and the cables also last longer. The cables store inside the rack so there are no loose straps...

  • Best Way to Check if a 2011 Ford Escape Limited Came with a Factory Towing Package
  • The way to check if your 2011 Ford Escape came equipped with the factory tow package is call your local dealership and provide them the VIN number. The relays # TR38665 should work fine in conjunction with the Draw-Tite wiring harness, part # 118251 and would complete the tow package wiring on your Escape. I always recommend using dielectric grease such as # 11755 as it combats corrosion from water damage. I have included a couple installation videos and an FAQ for you too.

Van cutaway chassis are used for a number of purposes, motorhomes, armored cars and ambulances among others. Whether the vehicle has the connector or not depends on how your RV manufacturer ordered the chassis from Ford. If the RV has a 7-way trailer connector, the chances of the connector being present are very good. The connector...

It plugs into the back of many different types of 7-Way trailer connectors so it isn't surprising that the one you have looks different than the ones we carry. As long as your connector has the round receptacle in the back to plug in a harness # PK11998 will work. I believe the one you have is the same as or similar to # PK11893.

  • This is a fairly common problem for trailer setups that use 6-way connectors like the # PK11604 that you referenced. The issue is that there is two accepted ways the connector can be wired up.

It sounds like your vehicle is wired one way and the trailer is wired the other way. What you will need to do is swap the two circuits on either the trailer or the truck....

You may also be experiencing a ground issue which would not allow full power to the brakes on the trailer. I would begin by checking...
