Expert Answers about Ford


  • Front Receiver Hitch for Snowplow on 1999 Ford Explorer
  • Curt offers the # C31051 front mounted hitch that's a fit for all models of the 1999 Ford Explorer, as long as it isn't a Sport Trac. The hitch has a 350 lb vertical pull capacity, which means the maximum amount of weight that can be hung from the receiver is 350 lbs. If the plow you're wanting to use weighs less than that, the hitch will work great for you. I don't know if you have your plow yet-if you don't, we offer a few that you might want to take a look at. The Snowsport # A40000HD...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2007 Ford Edge
  • Yes, the Draw-Tite Hitch part # 75526 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 2007 Ford Edge so I would recommend it for you. I attached an install video that shows this hitch being installed on a 2008 Ford Edge for you to check out. For trailer wiring you would want the part # 118551. If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch...

  • Fifth Wheel Adapter for a Draw Tite Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck Hitch
  • I have a solution that could work well for you, but there isn't an adapter exactly like the # 16310 that would fit a Draw Tite turn over Hide-a-Goose. Instead I would recommend the Hi-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # 9480. This will fit in your gooseneck hitch easily and will provide you with a fifth wheel hitch. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Do the Cross Member Bolts of the Curt E16 Hitch Get Tightened to the Legs
  • I found the section under the installation instructions for the Curt E16 Hitch part # C16115 that you are referring to and it does say to only finger tighten the bolts that hold the crossmember to the legs of the hitch. So I called up my tech contact at Curt and he informed me that you will need to torque those bolts down and that the instructions are somewhat misleading since it only goes as far as finger tightening those bolts.

  • Can Diversi-Tech Coupler Lock # DT25013 and Latch Lock # DT30010 be Keyed Alike
  • Yes, since both the Diversi-Tech Universal Trailer Coupler Lock # DT25013 and the Latch Lock # DT30010 are available with a Keyed Alike option, you can get them keyed alike. Go to the product page for each of the locks, and from the drop down menu just above the 'add to cart' button, choose the 'keyed alike' option, then add both locks to your cart. Both locks would need to be on the same order, in order for them to be keyed alike. There will be a small upcharge for each lock.

The original wire from the alternator to the main battery would be removed from the battery and installed on terminal 1. Terminal E would connect to the an ignition circuit that's hot only when the key is switched on via a 6 amp breaker. Terminal A would connect to the battery lead on the alternator and Terminal 2 would connect to the positive terminal...

  • Is Water in Engine Oil of 2004 Ford F-150 FX4 a Sign of Engine Damage
  • The engine in your 2004 Ford F-150 FX4 is equipped with multiple frost plugs in the block. Virtually all engines have this feature. The frost plugs will appear as a small round recess in the block, sort of like the underside of a bottle cap. These are intended to expand outward when the coolant in the block freezes. They are intended to take the force of the expanding ice rather than it inflicting damage to the engine. Since you have found water in your engine oil it seems that the...

I have attached a drawing that shows the dimensions you need when installing the rail kit in the bed of your F-150. As the drawing shows you need to measure 29-5/16 inches from the rear edge of the truck bed to the rear edge of the base rail that is placed closest to the tailgate in the bed.

  • What is the Recommended Setting on an Edge Performance Chip # EP15051 to Monitor MPG on a 2008 F-150
  • The Edge performance chip # EP15051 you referenced will have 4 settings: stock, transmission only, tow performance and high performance. You won't have a direct option to view your gas mileage. The one I recommend is the Edge Evolution performance # EP85150 as it displays 8 parameters at time as well as a Mileage Coach program to help maximize your fuel economy on your 2008 Ford F-150. This is the fuel economy mode setting. The Mileage Coach will monitor real-time fuel economy and can...

  • Looking for Truck Tent to Fit my 2014 Ford Transit Connect
  • The Rightline Gear SUV Tent, # RL110907, is a semi-universal application designed to fit nearly every SUV, minivan and crossover out there. The sleeve that goes around the vehicle is adjustable so it will fit different shapes and sizes. Since your 2014 Ford Transit Connect has the 2 rear doors that open out, most likely they will not be able to fully open to the sides, or what I would call folding back, but you should still have plenty of room to access the rear cargo area of your Connect.

  • How to Pick Out the Correct Size Tire Cover

What you will need to do is get the complete tire size off of the side of your tire and then with that info check out the FAQ article I attached that details how to determine tire diameters. Once you have determined you overall tire diameter check out the other link I attached to the right that has all of the covers we offer.

  • Is the Passenger Side Mirror of the K-Source Towing Mirror for 2000 Ford Excursion Convex
  • The main glass on the passenger side of the K-Source Custom Extendable Towing Mirrors # KS61095-96F is flat glass so it does not have the, "objects in mirror are closer than they appear" message because the image is not distorted for a wider viewing angle that would make things look closer than they really are.

  • Compatibility of Reese Weight Distribution Shanks for 2-1/2 Inch Receivers with Ford OEM
  • I cannot say for certainty if one of the shanks designed for a Class V hitch would work. There are sometimes fit problems using aftermarket ball mounts and shanks in the 2010-2012 Ford OEM Class V hitches. The OEM hitch uses a more rounded radius in the corners of the receiver tube, which sometimes can prevent aftermarket accessories from being installed in the hitch. The Reese # RP54976 and # RP54977 are designed and tested with Reese, Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite hitches. Reese has found...

The bumper attaches to the frame rail on your truck and has a tongue weight capacity of 800 lbs and a towing capacity of 8,000 lbs.

This mounts to the license plate mounting holes on Excursion and folds down so that you have access to the front mounted hitch.

  • Can The Edge EvoHT Hand-Held Performance Tuner Diagnose Trouble Codes
  • If you have check engine lights on the dash of your 2003 6.0 Ford F550 then the # EP16030 would allow you to read and clear these codes. However, I wouldn't recommend this for you at this point. Typically check engine codes are related to emissions related components and not major components that would prevent a vehicle from starting. I would recommend you take the truck to a qualified diesel mechanic and have them check the truck out. Once you get the truck going the # EP16030 that...

  • How to Install a Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch on a Flat Bed Truck
  • Since you have a flatbed on your truck now the only recommended way to use a Companion hitch will be to first use the # BWGNRK1500 as a gooseneck hitch and then for a fifth wheel hitch you would need the # BWRVK3050. The # BWGNRK1108 that you had previously installed on your truck is not compatible with flatbed trucks so there would be no recommended way for you to use it.

So then for a Hopkins brake controller like part # HM47297 the correct harness would be the # HM47855. The port to plug in a brake controller is up under the dash behind the instrument cluster. It is not easy to get to but it is there.

  • Weight Distribution System for 2012 Ford F150 Pulling Flagstaff Windjammer 2609W
  • The latest generation of weight distribution/sway control systems offer the advantages of actually preventing sway from starting in the first place, rather than correcting it once it starts. Equalizer systems can be a good choice when frame access is limited since their brackets need less space on the frame than some other types, but for the best handling I suggest a Strait-Line system from Reese that prevents sway from even starting.

For that you would want the Reese Elite Underbed Rail Kit part # RP30126. Since you have a Reese Revolution pin box on your trailer you won't need a slider hitch to make 90 degree turns. So you would want a stationary hitch instead. For that you would want the part # RP30142...

  • Actually the Curt Hitch part # C12232 and the Draw Tite Hitch part # 36313 that you referenced are both very similar. They are basically two different manufacturers versions of the same hitch. What gives the Draw Tite hitch the edge of the Curt hitch though is that it does not require a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 when used with a non-supported load like a bike rack like the Swagman XTC 2 part # S64670. If you failed to use the strap you would void the warranty of the hitch...

The wiring harness would install inline with the US car connector behind the existing 7-way on your bumper. It would then need to work its way forward of the wheel well and up the bedside to the area you're wanting to install the in-bed 7-way. If you could run the harness in a straight line from point A to point B, it would work just fine but because you'll need to work around the spare tire...

  • Can I Put Headache Rack,Tool Box and Tonneau Cover on 2015 Ford F-350 Crew Cab
  • I spoke with my contact at DeeZee and she said you could use a headache rack like # DZ95050W, which you reference, on your 2015 Ford F-350 Crew Cab. For a DeeZee toolbox that is compatible with this headache rack I recommend a crossover toolbox like # DZ8370 or # DZ8170. The main difference is that part # DZ8370 is a gull-wing design with 2 lids that open from either side of the toolbox. Check out the video review of # DZ8370 at right. Both toolboxes mount to the side rails of your truck...

  • How To Determine if 2000 Ford Ranger has Crossmember that Interferes w/ Front Hitch Installation
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt and he provided a picture to show what to look for when it comes to determining whether your 2000 Ford Ranger has the front crossmember. You will see his picture off to the right. If your Ranger DOES NOT have a crossmember then the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, # C31063, will work for you. If your Ranger DOES have the front crossmember, this will interfere with installing the hitch. In this case I recommend having a hitch custom fabricated...

  • Replacing 4-Pole Trailer Connector on Trailer With 7 Different Circuits Feeding It
  • It sounds like you've got a pretty good handle on what you're dealing with. You're correct, the green is right turn/brake, yellow is left turn/brake, black/green is right taillight and black/yellow is left taillight. The remaining wires are almost certainly grounds. I'm guessing you're not the original owner of the trailer or the person who wired it last time. Rather than grounding each trailer lamp directly to the trailer frame by its mounting studs or individual ground wires connected...

  • Helper Springs for a 2011 Ford F-150 XLT with 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • The Firestone air bag brackets for kit # F2525 also install on the outboard sides of the frame on a 2011 Ford F-150 so this kit will not work for you. You will need something that mounts only to the bottom or inboard sides of the frame rails. If your truck is a 2-wheel drive I recommend Timbren springs # TFR1502D, and for a 4-wheel drive model use # TFR1504D. Timbren springs are more ideal for towing since the load is static, doesn't frequently change. Also there is no maintenance to...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Options for 2015 Ford F250 with Factory Fifth Wheel Tow Prep Package
  • You have several different options available. Reese offers the Elite Series Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch, part # RP30144. The hitch would drop right into the puck system in the bed of your truck, and would have an 18,000 lb capacity. It's a bit less than the 20K you were looking for, but it would offer more than enough capacity for the fifth wheel you mentioned. Another option would be to use a stationary hitch like # RP30142 with an 18K capacity or # RP30143 for a 25K capacity along...

This will work well with the catback and cold air intake you have on your vehicle. The setting will be called "High Performance." As far as the tire setting is concerned you will want to use the standard tire size that is stamped on the side of the sidewall of the trailer to correct your speedometer.

  • Does the Strait-Line Weight Distribution # RP66130 Come with a Shank
  • Actually the Strait-Line Weight Distribution # RP66130 does not come with a shank so if you needed one for a 2-1/2 inch hitch you would want the part # RP54977, or if you have a 2 inch hitch you would want the part # RP54970 instead. I attached a review video and installation instruction links to the right for you to check out plus an FAQ on weight distributions systems.

  • Recommended Upgrades to Motorhome on 2011 Ford F53 Chassis to Resist Sway Caused by Oncoming Traffic
  • The two improvements you can make that will stop the problem you're experiencing is an anti-sway bar and a steering stabilizer. The exact equipment you need will depend on the engine your motorhome has, it's length and if it has a Dana 150 rear axle. I'd recommend starting with a larger anti-sway bar for a V8 equipped vehicle use part # RM-1139-140. This will be used in conjunction with your existing factory sway bar.

  • Towing Mirror Recommendation for a 2015 Ford Escape
  • I looked at some pictures of the mirrors you have on your 2015 Ford Escape and it would be hard to fit towing mirrors that attach to them on your vehicle. Instead I would recommend a door mounted mirror like part # 11650. This mirror will also be more stable than a mirror mounted mirror due to how well it secures to the vehicle which will provide a better view behind you.

Finding the brake controller connectors on those cutaway chassis E450 models can be challenging. When Ford sends them to out to aftermarket, they are used for several different vehicles, like RVs, ambulances, moving vans, delivery trucks, etc. During this process the under-dash wiring can be moved around...
