1996 Ford F-250 and F-350 Questions and Answers


  • How to Lock a Curt Spyder # 16085 to Fifth Wheel Rails
  • What I recommend you get to lock your Curt Spyder part # 16085 to the fifth wheel rails of your truck is the Reese Pull Pin Lock Plates # RP58093 and then use a pad lock like part # 37DAT to lock the pins that hold the spyder to your rails. Check out the picture I attached to see how these products all work together.

  • Best 7-Way Trailer Connector Extension for a 1996 Ford Super Duty

  • Adding a New 4-Way and 7-Way Trailer Connector to a 1996 Ford F-250
  • To add a new 4-Way to your 1996 Ford F-250 you will need wiring harness # 118316. I have linked a video to the right showing how it installs. It does not sound like the truck came with a factory 7-Way to begin with. In order to install one you will need # 37185. This will actually mean that you do not need the bracket # 54-77-074. Instead you will use the bracket that comes with # 37185. Once installed you will have both a 4-Way and a 7-Way at the back of the truck. You could use the...

  • Derale Transmission Pan Cooler # D14208 for 1996 Ford F250 w/ 7.3L Engine
  • According to my research, the 1996 F250 7.3l engine should have a E40D transmission. There are two different ways of confirming this. First, you can check the sticker on the driver's side door jamb. You will see the letters TR or TRANS, followed by a letter. If the letter is E, you have the E40D transmission. Secondly, you can check the number of bolts holding the transmission pan on. If there's 20 bolts, it's a E40D. The Derale # D14208 is indeed compatible with the E40D transmission.

  • Can an Edge Evolution Programmer be Used on More than One Truck
  • For programmers like # EP85100 and really any programmer, to prevent people from just passing around the programmer it can only be tuned to one vehicle at a time. To move it to a different vehicle that it is also compatible with it will have to be re-registered with Edge for a fee. I have linked a video review of the programmer and a link to our FAQ on programmers to the right.

  • Are Cushions in Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mounts Rated for the Same Capacity as the Ball Mount
  • The cushioned ball mount # AMSC2HD is given its rating based on extensive testing and the design of the components. That does include the cushions on the inside of the shank. So in other words if they tested it at 14K and the cushions failed they would not rate it for 14K. The ball mount meets Society of Automotive Engineers J684 specs. The cushion is going to provide more and more resistance the further or harder it is pushed against so it would not collapse or anything like that.

  • What is the Bolt Hole Spacing on Curt Trailer Hitch # C15300 for a 1996 Ford F-250
  • The first thing you are going to want to do is measure the width of the frame on your 1996 Ford F-250 to determine the width of the frame. Measure from the outside on one side to the outside on the other side. Trailer hitch # C15300 is made for trucks with a frame width of 37-1/4 inches.

  • Trailer Brakes Lock Up When Using the Tekonsah Primus IQ Brake Controller on a 1996 Ford F-350
  • It sounds to me like there is either a wiring issue between the brake controller and the trailer connector on the truck or the brake controller is bad. Since your trailer brakes lock up when you are connected to the truck, that would indicate that there is constant power on the brake output circuit. The first step that I would take is to use a circuit tester with an incandescent bulb like our Quickee Tester, # 3808, to test the pin in the 5 oclock position if you have a 7-way trailer...

  • Replacement Side-View Mirror Options for a 1986 Tioga Arrow by Fleetwood
  • I pulled one of our CIPA Universal Door Mount Mirrors, # CM45000, and took some measurements for you. The distance from the top mounting bar to the closest edge of the mirror is 8-3/4 inches. From that same bar to the center of the mirror is 13-1/4 inches (see photo). Once this mirror is installed and the final angle adjustments are set, you may only have about half of the mirror extending past the extended sides of the RV. Another option that you may be interested in is the CIPA...

  • Where is the Factory Connector Located to Install a Brake Controller On a 1996 Ford F-250
  • If your 1996 Ford F-250 came with a factory 7-Way or 4-Way trailer connector, then you can use the # 3035-P brake controller harness that you have referenced. To install it locate the factory connector. It is typically located behind the center console and under the dash. But it also could be behind the lower dash panel beneath the steering column. I have linked a video that should help you.

  • What Weight Distribution System for 1996 Ford F-250 4x4 7.3L Diesel Towing 7900 Lb Keystone Trailer
  • You will need to determine the fully-loaded, ready-to-tow tongue weight of your Sprinter before selecting a weight distribution/sway control system. With your trailer in a road-ready condition (full propane and water tanks, all gear, supplies and provisions loaded exactly as they will be when you are on the road) verify your trailer actual tongue weight as outlined in the attached articles. Bear in mind that anything in the back of your F-250 that sits behind the rear axle (an ATV or generator,...

  • Radiator Adapter Fittings for Installing a Transmission Cooler on a 1996 Ford F-250/350
  • For your 1996 Ford truck there are threaded fittings in the radiator which are input and out put from/to the transmission cooler. The fittings allow you to replace the existing fittings with ones that have flared ends for the hose in a supplemental cooler so you do not have to cut and flare lines. Use kit # D13014 if the radiator uses 1/4 inch or 3/8 inch threaded fittings, or use kit # D13024 for 1/2-20 inverted flare fittings. You do not need both kits unless you are not sure of what...

  • Can the Fulton F2 Swing-Up Trailer Jack Be Mounted to an I-Beam Aluminum Boat Trailer
  • First, the closer you get to the axle on the trailer, the heavier that part of the trailer is going to be. That is important because where you mount the jack could determine if it is over or under capacity. You would need to box out the frame so that it is square or rectangle and not an I so the jack can be safely attached. Usually to do this, you would weld on a couple of steel plates. However, welding to aluminum is tricky and requires a very skilled welder with experience. This is...

  • Will the Blue Ox Diamond Hitch Gooseneck Hitch # DH1202 Fit 1996 Ford F350 Diesel Long Box
  • According to my contacts at Blue Ox, the # DH1202 is indeed the correct Diamond Hitch for your 1996 F350 long bed. The hitch will not fit short box diesel models, but it would be fine with your long box equipped F350. I will link you to our Gooseneck towing FAQ article that you might find helpful.

  • Looking for 7-Way and 4-Pole Trailer Connector to Replace Existing 7-Way on 1996 Ford F250

The 7-Way and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Sockets w/ Mounting Bracket and Wiring, part # HM40975-11998 would replace your existing 7-way, and would provide a 4-pole connector for towing your Jeep. The connector includes the pigtail to wire into the existing wiring on your F250, as well as a mounting...

  • Tan Front Floor Mat Recommendation for a 1996 Ford F350
  • There are a couple sets of tan front floor mats we have available for your 1996 Ford F350, but the Highland Floor Mats # 44042 that you referenced are not a confirmed fit for you vehicle so I cannot recommend them for you. The Highland Floor Mat # 44752 is a custom fit mat that is designed to fit your vehicle, whereas the # 44037 is more of a universal style mat that has been found to fit your vehicle.

  • What Gauge Wire to Use When Wiring a Trailer for Brakes
  • It is recommended that you use 10 gauge wire from the 7-way back to the brake assemblies on your trailer. Anything smaller than that and you might have problems. I would recommend you replace the wiring on your trailer to 10 Gauge Blue Primary Wire # 10-1-1. I attached an FAQ on trailer wiring for you to check out. I also attached a video that shows a trailer being wired for brakes for you to check out. Fast forward to the 4:53 mark to see the part about wiring.

  • Is a Custom 5th Wheel Rail Installation Kit Available for a 1996 Ford F-250 with 8 foot bed
  • At this time the only install kits available for the 1996 Ford F-250 with 8 foot bed are the universal installation kits like the Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit, item # RP30035. Installation of this style kit takes a bit longer and requires more drilling, but once the initial installation is complete, the rails are there whenever needed. I would not let the universal kit stop me from installing a fifth-wheel rail kit on a vehicle like the 1996 F-250 with 8 foot bed. I...

  • Transmission Cooler and Temperature Gauge Recommendations for a 1996 Ford F-250, F-350
  • You will want to keep the factory transmission cooler and use the aftermarket one to supplement the cooling rather than just replace the factory cooler. The idea is that, working together, an aftermarket cooler and the factory cooler will be more efficient and cool the transmission fluid better than just one cooler working alone. We do have a handy analog gauge you can use to monitor the transmission fluid temperature. Take a look at the Derale Temperature Gauge Kit, # D13009. This gauge...

  • Yes, the Glacier Emergency Twist-Link Snow Tire Chains for Heavy Trucks, item # PW6087, will work on your 1996 Ford F-150, as long as the wheels have a slot in them that the chain attachment strap can run, and as long as there is clearance in the rear wheel well for the thickness of the chains when they are installed on the tire. If you have aluminum wheels you will need to take care when attaching the chains to avoid damage to the wheel. If you have the standard 235/75-15 tires on...
