Today on this 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Track, we're going to show you the Extang Tuff Tonno Soft Tonneau Cover, part number EX14745. This is what the tonneau cover looks like once it's installed on the back of our sport track. First off you notice this does sit on top of the rails, and on top of the tailgate. This is not a flush fit, however with that though, there's less material on the inside of the bed to get in the way, so you have full access to your bed of your truck. The tonneau cover is created from a vinyl fabric, which is stitched into the side to the attachment points that we'll show a little bit later. On the very edge it has a polymer material attached to it and actually stitched into place. You know it's not going to go anywhere, and it goes all the way around on both sides about a quarter inch.This protects the edges from getting ragged.

Ford Explorer Sport Trac Questions

  • The tire sizes you mention are considered to be obsolete sizes. The 8.25-15 tire would have an 8-1/4 inch width and a diameter around 28-1/2 inches. The 7.75-15 tire would be around 7-3/4 inches wide with an approximate diameter of 27-3/4 inches. The closest modern tire size to the 8.25-15 would be a ST225/75-15, available in bias ply load range D as part # AM1ST96, or in radial load range D as part # AM10256 or load range C as part # AM10251.

  • It sounds like your Trailblazer had a 7-Way round pin connector and your Explorer Sport Trac has a 7-Way blade style connector. The configurations are different between the 2 different connectors. For an adapter, using the 7 Pole to 5 Pole flat, # A75TB, that you have referenced would work for you if the Ford has the blade style connector. I have included a picture that shows the differences between a 7-Way round pin and 7-Way blade style connector, vehicle side. If the...

  • The noise you hear will be a result of how tight you have the Reese Friction Sway Control, # RP26660. The tighter it is, the more resistance there is which can lead to a lot of noise depending on how much force is being applied to it. If you want the sway control active, move the handle to the on position (tilted back towards the trailer. To turn it off, pull the handle back towards the vehicle. The nut below the handle is for adjustment only. It sounds like you have too much...

  • We have all of the parts you are looking for to flat tow your 2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac 4x4, however, I did some research on your vehicle and it looks like you may need a Neutral Tow Kit from Ford to complete the flat tow setup for your Sport Trac. I recommend checking your owners manual or contacting Ford for any specific procedures or restrictions on flat towing your vehicle. For a base plate kit, you can use the Blue Ox Base Plates, # BX2198, that you referenced. This...

  • If your Valley Journey Brake Controller # 52650 delivers a constant brake output signal to your trailer connector you can use a circuit tester such as the Quickee # 3808 to determine if the fault is in the controller itself or elsewhere. There are several potential causes for this issue. I have linked a help article that will be useful to you as you troubleshoot. Please note that in a separate email I have forwarded the instructions for the now-discontinued Journey. You can...

  • The Explorer Sport Trac models were not pre wired for a brake controller from the factory. Does the vehicle already have a 4-pole trailer connector? If not, you can install one using part # 18252. To install your brake controller we offer an installation kit, part # ETBC6 for a 6-way trailer connector, or part # ETBC7 for a 7-way connector. The install kit includes everything needed to complete the install, including an adapter to convert your 4-pole trailer connector to a...

  • In order to be able to carry bikes between your towed vehicle and the RV you will first need a dual receiver for your trailer hitch. I recommend the Curt Dual 2 inch Receiver Tube Adapter, part # D-192. the bottom receiver is used for the tow bar and the upper receiver has a 2 inch receiver for the bike carrier. Bike carriers need to be RV rated because they are built to take on the added stress at the rear of the RV or motorhome. The carrier I recommend is the Swagman...

  • To find the correct replacement hub you will need to know if the hub is designed to fit the spindles on your trailer. The best way to find the right components is to remove your hub and check out the bearings and race you have. I have attached a drawing that shows where you can typically find the numbers. If you cannot find the part numbers you can use a digital caliper like part # ALL641130 and measure the spindle in the locations noted on the drawing. You said you have...

  • We have everything you will need to flat tow your 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac behind your Winnebago Adventurer, but before attempting to tow, I strongly recommend checking your owners manual before proceeding. From what I could find, the 4WD models with the electronic shift transfer case and automatic transmission cannot be flat towed. Ford also has distance and speed restrictions when flat towing this vehicle. To flat tow your 2001 Ford Sport Trac Automatic behind your...

  • If you do not have a roof rack on your 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Track, then you could use the SportRack Foam-Block-Style Kayak Carrier, # SR5525, that you referenced to mount the kayak directly to your roof. I would recommend carrying your 12 ft kayak on a roof rack because a roof rack will provide more space between the roof of your vehicle and your kayak and limit the possibility of your kayak or vehicle being damaged while loading and unloading. We have many different roof...

  • Yes, the Swagman Exo Aero Rooftop Kayak Carrier # S65145, that you referenced will fit the Thule square crossbars like # THLB50. This carrier is designed to hold 1 kayak or 1 canoe hull-side down, and is designed to fit most crossbars up to 2-1/2 inches wide. The minimum crossbar spread to accommodate this system is 24 inches. It also comes with tie-down straps for the front and the rear and also tie-down straps that secure the canoe to the roof rack.

  • For the 4-way, I would recommend using a circuit tester like part # 3808 and testing the wires before they reach the connector. This will rule out the connector itself as being bad. If the 4-pole connector is an aftermarket addition, trace each wire leading from the connector to ensure that they are still connected. If the trailer connector is factory installed, it might be a blown fuse. The fuses that protect the towing circuits are usually located under the hood, it is possible...

  • The Ventline Replacement Dome Assembly for Ventadome Trailer Roof Vent, part # BVD0449-A01, includes half of the hinge mechanism. The dome and this portion of the hinge are molded together as one piece. If the dome assembly and its hinge, and also the mating portion that is mounted on your trailer roof flange, are both still intact, you should be able to re-attach the dome. You may need to replace the steel spring clip that holds the dome in place. This is available as part...

  • Since your 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac has a 4-Way wiring harness already, you will need to start by adding an Adapter, but I recommend using a 4 and 7-Way Installation Kit, # ETBC7. Your 4-Way will plug into the back of the adapter and you will need to hardwire the remaining 4 wires. First, ground the white wire to the vehicle frame. Next, for the purple wire, if the trailer does not have reverse lights this wire is not needed and you can tape it up and stow it out of the...

  • I spoke with my contact at DeeZee, who tells me that they are not certain that the clamps used to hold the Ladder Rack System to the top of the side of the bed will work with your Sport Trac. The ladder rack has not been tested with your vehicle. Perhaps a better solution would be install a Thule Roof Rack. One can be constructed using the following parts: If your Sport Trac is equipped with the rails that run from the front to the rear of the roof: Load Bars, part #...

  • Topline does not list specific vehicle fits for this item. As long as your tailgate is is between 48 and 64 inches wide and has flat areas to mount the brackets as shown in the photo, and the area where the brackets would mount is steel or there is steel under a bed liner, the Topline Truck Bed Expander would work just fine with your Explorer Sport Trac. The extender is also available in silver, as part # BX4004-01. The install video I linked you to shows the extender being...

  • We do offer towing mirrors for your 2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac but like the ones you purchased elsewhere they are universal-fit mirrors that are designed to fit a variety of vehicles' OEM mirrors. We do not have any custom-fit mirrors designed specifically to fit on the stock mirrors on your 2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac. Universal towing mirrors come in three types: clip-on, door-mount and fender-mount. The clip-on type attaches to your stock mirrors with adjustable arms...

  • The Convert-A-Ball Kwik Gate Bed Extender and Tailgate Step, # KG48, is considered a universal fit item. It measures 48 inches wide. You will need to measure your bed width to determine if it will fit your 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac. I am not convinced that it is a fit based on the 48 inch measurement. The reason is because the other bed extenders we carry are also not listed as a fit and they are at least 48 inches wide. But you may be interested in # CAB-SG-2R. This...

  • Yes, the Curt Class III Hitch, part # 13407, will fit your 2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac without removing the factory size spare tire. Spare tires larger than the factory size are not tested with trailer hitches so if your spare is larger than OEM it could prove to be a problem. I have included a link to the installation instructions on the Curt hitch for you to review. I also attached a photo of a similar hitch installed on a Sport Trac with OEM full size spare.
