Ford F-150 Tow Bars Questions

  • The Roadmaster Nighthawk # RM-676 is an excellent tow bar choice. It is indeed compatible with the EZ5 base plates, # RM-524431-5, for your 2017 Ford F-150. Since the tow bar comes with safety cables you will not need to add any of those to your order. Lighting kit # RM-154 will also work with the truck. This lighting kit uses 4-Way flat connectors so to use it with the 6-Way end on the tow bar's wiring you will also need connector # RM-910030-7 to mount to the front of the...

  • The Roadmaster Stowmaster tow bar part # RM-501 has a 6k weight capacity so it would work to tow your 2016 Ford F-150 as the weights I looked up for it are between 4 and 5.2k. For a base plate kit you would need to go with a new one since a kit from a Chevy truck would not fit. You would have to use the XL kit part # RM-524431-5 as that is what's compatible with your truck and the tow bar. If you were in need of safety cables you would then also need the part # RM-643 which...

  • The Roadmaster Falcon 2 part # RM-520 would be a great tow bar for flat towing your 2016 Ford F-150 as it weighs less than the capacity of the tow bar and because this is one of the nicest tow bars around. You are also correct that the part # RM-524431-4 does not require the use of a crossbar.

  • First you will want to start with a base plate kit for your 2015 Ford F-150 Platinum 4WD. For that you would want the Roadmaster kit part # RM-524431-5 that has been confirmed as a fit for your vehicle. The arms of the kit are removable so when you aren't flat towing the vehicle you wouldn't have two large metal arms sticking out of the front of the vehicle. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking...

  • For replacement Roadmaster EZ Hook Safety Cables that come with the Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain Tow Bar # RM-576 we have part # RM-655-64 for just 64" cables or part # RM-655 which comes with the 64" cables and the anchors should you need them. For a Base Plate Kit that is compatible with both your 2015 Ford F-150 and your Sterling Tow Bar you will want to use the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit # RM-524431-4. Since the Sterling Tow Bar already comes with the wiring adapter...

If you do not have the base plates you can check out the attached link to our product page for the base plates we offer for your truck. If you do not have EcoBoost on your truck you can use part # 495-1A. If you do have EcoBoost on your truck the base plates that will work are part # RM-524431-5. Since you have already been flat-towing you probably...

  • The first thing you will want to do is consult the owners manual for your 2013 Ford F-150 for specific information on flat towing it. You will need 5 basic components to flat tow a vehicle: base plates, tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. For base plates there are several options depending on the trim level of your truck. Base plates # BX2606 will fit XL, XLT, STX models without EcoBoost.

  • To flat tow your 2013 Ford F-150 Supercrew you will need a tow bar, base plate kit, safety cable set, tow bar wiring, a supplemental braking system, and most likely a high-low adapter. The Tow Bar that I recommend using is the Blue Ox Avail # BX7420 which is rated for 10,000 lbs and comes with safety cables. Since it uses telescoping arms it is much easier to hook up to your base plates over some other models. I prefer the Blue Ox Base Plate kits that allow you to remove...

  • To determine if you can use your Blue Ox Aladdin tow bar, # BX4325, with your 2013 Ford F-150 you have to look at the base plates that are available. All of the Blue Ox base plates for the 2013 Ford F-150 are compatible with the Aladdin tow bar. But to select the correct ones I will need to know if your Lariat has the EcoBoost motor or not. If it does not then you will need to use Roadmaster base plates and an adapter. So, for a Lariat with EcoBoost use Blue Ox base plates...

  • To flat tow your vehicle, you will need a tow bar, base plates that install on the vehicle and provide a connection point, safety cables, a wiring solution and a supplemental braking system. The Blue Ox Avail, part # BX7420 would be a great choice. The swiveling and self-aligning design make hitching the vehicle very easy, even on on terrain that is not pool-table flat. The 10,000 capacity of the Avail will handle the weight of your F150 with no problem. Safety cables are included...

  • For your 2011 F150 Lariat with the 5.0L engine, I would recommend the Roadmaster # 495-1A base plate kit. I have phoned Roadmaster and confirmed the compatibility of this kit with your vehicle. According to the 'recreational towing' section of your owner's manual, 2WD and 4x4 vehicles equipped with an electronic transfer case cannot be flat towed as-is. 4x4 vehicles with a MANUAL transfer case can be flat towed without modification. The steps required to flat tow the vehicle...

  • The Curt Tow Bar with Adjustable-Width Arms # C19745 will attach to the bumper of your 2011 Ford F-150 via the bar's bumper brackets. It will require drilling holes into your bumper to provide attachment points. I've left a link to a video review of this tow bar for you to take a look at.

  • First you'll want to check your Ford owner's manual to confirm your particular truck, with its specific mix of cab style, engine, transmission and suspension components, has the required towing capacity for your 6500-lb trailer. If you cannot verify this in the manual your local dealership can look up the truck's VIN to confirm its tow rating. I checked the online manual for the 2010 F-150 and on pages 256-258 the towing capacities of the different configurations are listed....

  • Since your 2007 Ford F-150 4x4 has a manual transfer case and not the electronic shift on the fly feature, you can flat tow the truck. But, you will want to confirm this by consulting the vehicle owners manual for the proper towing procedure. You will first want to install base plates on the truck. I recommend using XL style base plates # 495-1A because there are a lot of compatible tow bar options for the XL style plates. For a tow bar, you you will be using a pintle hitch...

  • You will need to check with your vehicle manufacturer or owners manual for instructions on the proper procedure for towing your vehicle, because some vehicles must be equipped with a transmission lube pump, an axle disconnect, drive line disconnect, or free-wheeling hubs before they can be towed. Your 2007 Ford F-150 2WD Super Cab 4-Door can be flat towed as is if it has a manual transmission. The 2WD models can not be flat towed if it has an automatic transmission. If...

  • Since your truck is pushing the limit of 5,000 pounds for some tow bars then I recommend Roadmaster base plates # 495-1A and using Blackhawk tow bar, # RM-422, with safety cables # BX88197. The tow bar and cables are rated for 10,000 pounds. Next you will need a lighting kit like # RM-154 for frequent flat towing or # C-ATL20A for a magnetic kit for infrequent towing. And finally most states require a supplemental braking system on the vehicle being flat towed. One of the...

  • Before you attempt to tow your 2006 Ford F-150, you need to check with the owners manual to see if flat towing is recommended, and to see if you would need a transmission lube pump or axle disconnects to do so. You should also check with the owners manual of your Ford F-350 and see what the towing capacities of the vehicle are. At this point, I would seriously consider renting a trailer to haul your F-150. If you went that route, you would be able to return the trailer when...
