Trailer Hitch Installation - 1998 Ford Van - Draw-Tite
Today on our 1998 Ford Econoline van we'll be installing the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch part number 41906. Here's what our hitch looks like installed on our vehicle. Now let's go ahead and we'll give you a couple measurements to help you choose some accessories for your hitch such as a ball mount, a bicycle rack or a cargo carrier. From the top of the opening of the hitch to the ground is approximately 17 1/2 inches. This hitch extends past your bumper approximately four inches. Now let's go ahead and install our hitch. We will begin by pointing out the locations that the trailer hitch will mount to the frame of the vehicle. The rear most mounting location is the one that we'll need to enlarge.
