Besides the hitch with the slider built in, what else will I need for installation in the 07 F-250 Super Duty short bed. Thank you
asked by: Keith
Other than the sliding hitch you referenced, part # PS30094, you will need an install kit that includes the rails to attach the hitch to the truck bed and the brackets that attach the rails to the truck frame. There are two different kits that will work with your F250, a universal kit, part # RP30035 and a custom kit, part # RP50082-58. I would recommend the custom kit, as it will cut your install time by 50 percent.
You will also need a trailer connector mounted in the truck bed. Typically, this is installed on the drivers side between the tail gate and the wheel well. Part # PK11893-11932 would plug inline with your existing 7-way and allow you to retain your connector at the rear of the vehicle.
I have provided links to install instructions for both install kits, as well as link to some install videos. The wiring harness install shows the connector being installed on a different vehicle, but the video will give you a good idea of how to proceed with the install.
