  • 3 Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2015 Ford Escape
  • The Thule Venture is the same as the Thule Passage (different color though) # TH911XT. I checked with Thule and the Passage 3, # TH911XT and while I have a bike rack I can recommend Thule does not have any of their racks listed as a fit for your vehicle. The most similar rack to yours that is a fit is the Yakima KingJoe part # Y02620 which would work well. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing...

  • Will SCT Programmer for 2013 Ford F-150 with EcoBoost Engine Help Fuel Mileage
  • The programmers for gas engines like the SCT Livewire part # SCT5015P that is a confirmed fit for your 2013 Ford F-150 with the EcoBoost engine will give you typically between 1 to 3 additional miles per gallon if you keep the exact same driving habits. Since this programmer will give your truck a staggering 82 horsepower and 76 ft lbs of torque you may find it difficult to keep your foot out of the accelerator which would hurt mileage. A cold air intake like the part # AR401-101...

  • Why a Lock Isn't Used with the Du-Ha Storage Box/Gun Cases for Under Truck Seat
  • I wish there was a way to lock the rear seat down on to of the Du-Ha Truck Storage Box and Gun Case # DU20110 but the best lock for it would be the door locks of your 2016 Ford F-150. The seat also wouldn't fold up on it's own with this installed. To most people it would just look like a storage area under the seat. You may have to reposition your emergency roadside kit but it should still fit in your truck.

Next, insert your bearings and grease seal in the hub and mount your hub on your spindle. You should slowly pump grease into the spindle.

  • Will Draw Tite Hitch part # 24687 Fit a 1997 Ford Mustang GT
  • The Draw Tite hitch part # 24687 is a confirmed fit for both the V6 and V8 models of the 1997 Ford Mustang so it would fit your GT which has a V8. The hitch itself has a 2,000 lb trailer weight capacity. If the trailer you have in mind weighs less than that the hitch would be rated for it.

  • Is Using a Brake Controller Necessary for Towing a Trailer
  • If the trailer is equipped with electric brakes and you want them to actuate, you'll need a brake controller. A brake controller is a fairly small investment that will go a long way to keep you safer when towing. There are two types of controllers, the older time-delayed variety and the newer proportional type. I'd recommend going with a proportional controller like the Tekonsha Primus, part # TK90160. A proportional controller can sense how quickly the tow vehicle is braking, and...

  • Class I Trailer Hitch Availability for 2015 Ford Mustang V6
  • For the 2015 Ford Mustang only light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I hitches are made. This is because the car's frame structure cannot support the higher weight capacity of a Class II hitch. There would be no value is using a higher-rated hitch (nor in having one made) since the car itself cannot support even the Class I rating of 200-lbs tongue weight and 2000-lbs gross trailer weight. According to the online Ford towing guide the V6 Mustang has a 1000-lb maximum trailer weight capacity. Your...

  • Is Weight Distribution Needed for a 2016 Ford F-250 and Rpod 178 Travel Trailer
  • Weight distribution is recommended if the gross trailer weight is at least 50 percent of the gross truck weight or if the rear end of the vehicle sags or you experience steering, visibility, or braking issues when towing. If none of that applies to your rig then you certainly don't have to use the spring bars in the set up. having them though does increase stability and will help to reduce sway beyond what the sway control unit alone can do. It looks like the gross trailer weight...

  • Is there a Backup Camera System with Night Vision that Can Plug Into a GPS Monitor
  • For your 2016 Ford F-350 and 5th wheel trailer I recommend the Rear View Safety backup camera system # RVS-611-IR. Your GPS device would have to accept the 5-pin round connector on the cables used in this system in order to work with the GPS monitor. Otherwise I recommend a system that comes with its own monitor such as # SH03. Both of these systems have night vision capabilities.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2015 Ford Fusion Hybrid for Yakima LiteRider
  • Since the hitches we offer for your 2015 Ford Fusion are the same price I would recommend the Draw Tite part # 24897 over the Curt because it does not require a stabilizer strap like the Curt does when carrying a bike rack like the LiteRider part # Y02472 that you referenced. This hitch is a fit for your vehicle and would work well just like in the video for the # Y02472 that you referenced that I also attached.

  • Timbren Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2016 Ford F-250 Towing Fifth Wheel
  • I would recommend the Timbren part # TFR250SDG which has the 8,600 lb capacity over the part # TFRTT350F as this kit is designed for severe duty vehicles like tow trucks. The ride quality would be rather harsh. I attached an install video for the # TFR250SDG for you to check out as well. This kit will provide you the support you need without being overly harsh.

  • Could Brake Controller Install Harness part # 3035-P be Used to Install Predator Brake Controller

You could cut the rectangle end off of a # 3035-S and then hardwire the rest of the connector to your controller and then use the other end of the connected to plug in under the dash of your truck. The colors of the Predator would match right up to the harness.

  • What is the Winching Capacity of the Curt Front Mount Hitch for the 2012 Ford Escape

I spoke with my contact at Curt and confirmed this information for you. This means that the hitch can withstand up to 9,000 pounds of straight line pull when using a winch, but when towing a trailer the capacity is 3,500 pounds. While the...

  • Best Air Springs for 2016 Ford F-350 Super Duty While Towing a Fifth Wheel Trailer

These air springs are going to help you with your sagging issue when carrying a heavy load like your fifth wheel by allowing you to adjust the ride by adding air to the springs.

  • Is Manual Exhaust Regeneration Option Included in Edge Diesel Evolution CTS2 Tuner EP85400
  • Certain capabilities of a performance tuner like the Edge Diesel Evolution CTS2 Performance Tuner # EP85400 depend on the information sent to the unit by the vehicle OBD-II port. Edge does make tuners for other trucks that do allow manual adjustment of the exhaust regeneration cycle, but this tuner in your truck will only display the preset ERC, not change it. My contact at Edge confirmed they offer no tuners for your particular truck that allow that adjustment.

  • Can a Programmer and Cold Air Intake be Used at the Same Time on a 2013 Ford F-150 5.0L
  • Yes, you can use both cold air intake # AR402-299 and Flashpaq programmer # SU1845 together at the same time on your 2013 Ford F-150 with 5.0 liter motor. The intake has an estimated gain of up to 17 horsepower and the programmer up to 24.4 horsepower. But these figures don't stack meaning that using both doesn't necessarily mean that you will see a gain of 31.4 horsepower. It will likely be slightly less.

  • F250 dual battery winch wiring

  • What is the Best Kind of Truck for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The best trucks for heavy duty towing are going to be 1-ton trucks like a Ford F-350, Chevy Silverado 3500 or Ram 3500. A long bed is best because short bed trucks will require additional equipment to be able to tow the trailer without clearance problems when turning. As far as the motor I recommend one with a diesel motor because they have more torque across the RPM spectrum and they last a very long time. Generally speaking the newer the truck the higher its towing capacity will be....

  • The E-Track like part # E19135 that you referenced has a capacity of 6,000 lbs so it would do well securing a 2,500 lb trailer. I would recommend you use backing plates below the floor of your trailer like part # BPEZ since your tractor is pretty heavy and the floor of your trailer is wood. For D-Rings to install in the track you would want the part # E59143 so that you could use a ratchet strap like the # 1154000.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2000 Ford F250 Towing a 5th Wheel
  • How you use your truck will decide whether you need a passive-type system or something adjustable. A passive system like the Timbren Aeon Springs, part # TFR150SDE won't have any effect on your truck's ride until a load is placed on your rear suspension (whether it's cargo in the bed or the pin weight from your 5th wheel). When your stock suspension is compressed, the Aeon spring will contact the axle, providing extra cushioning and stability and reducing body roll. If you don't often carry...

  • For lighting for flat towing your 2016 Ford F-150 you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your tow vehicle to control the taillight assemblies of the towed vehicle. This comes with a round 6-way connector that you will install on the front of your towed vehicle and enough coiled wire to go from there to the RV.

I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

If a one-time install is what you are looking for this would be the kit to use. Or if you don't mind moving a braking system in and out of the vehicle each time you drive/tow it the Blue Ox Patriot...

  • Adding a 7-Way Trailer Connector and Brake Controller to a 2005 Ford E-150 Van with 4-Way

If it does not look like this please send me a picture of the trailer's connector so I can determine what it is. If it is indeed a regular RV style 7-Way then we do have the parts to add a mating 7-Way to your 2005 Ford E-150 van. You will need # ETBC7 to add the 7-Way, retain the 4-Way, and have the wiring needed...

  • Trailer Leaf Spring Bushings with 9/16 Inner Diameter and 3/4 Outer Diameter

So if you went with a 9/16 inner and 3/4 outer, like # SP05-060, then it will work though it is possible that the fit will be tighter for some than others especially since there are tolerances in the spring eyes as well.

  • Can I Use a Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch With My 2005 Ford F-150 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • The Curt Q16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16521 will work for your 2005 Ford F-150 with a 5-1/2 foot bed. Normally a Sidewinder is recommended for beds shorter than 6 feet but if a Sidewinder isn't an option a sliding hitch is your best bet. However, you may run into clearance issues when attempting sharp turns if your trailer nose was not designed for short bed trucks. A better hitch for your F-150 is the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # DM8550040. This hitch...

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2015 Ford F-150 with Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • The air bag kits we offer aren't for the purpose of lifting a vehicle unless you mean lifting it 3 inches when under load as a way to get rid of suspension sag. What I would recommend for suspension enhancement would actually be the Timbren part # TFR1504E as it would not interfere with any fifth wheel brackets and would give you the same suspension support without having to maintain air pressure in any bags.

Because of that I would recommend it for your application. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900.

  • Height of Shank on the WeighSafe Ball Mount part # WS10-2
  • If you had the WeighSafe Ball Mount part # WS10-2 installed in the rise position it would measure 14 inches from the top of the hitch opening to the very top of the shank of the ball mount. Basically you would need to measure from the top of your hitch opening to your tailgate when folded down. If that dimension is more than 14 inches you wouldn't have to worry.

  • Recommended ST215/75-14 Special Trailer Tire for 2500-lb Camper Trailer
  • The larger ST215/75-14 tire size will be about 1/2-inch larger in overall diameter than your stock 205/75-14 tires which means you will lose about 1/4-inch of wheel well clearance around the tire. The width also is greater (10mm, or 4 tenths of an inch) so this means you'll also lose some clearance laterally between the inner side wall and the trailer frame. As long as the larger tire does not present a clearance issue you'll be fine moving to the wider/larger tire. By moving to a higher...
