Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 1988 Ford F-250 - B and W

Today on this 1988 Ford F-250, we're going to review and install the B&W Heavy Duty Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number BWHDRH25122. All steel construction with a powder coat finish to it. You'll notice it does sit below the bumper, have about 2", maybe 2-1/2" of clearance down below so we don't have to worry about interference. This does have a 2" opening right here and uses a 5/8" hitch pin hole. Even our safety chain loops here are constructed from heavy duty steel as well. It does have a thick spacing right here between the opening and the outside edge so this inaudible 00:00:37 big sized hooks. Weight capacity of your hitch is right at the top. It actually has a 16,000-lbs of pull weight and also 1,600-lbs of tongue weight.

This also comes with a bracket right here, to fit a variety of different connectors out there. Our hitch construction is actually a bolt together style which means this one solid piece right here is bolted to our crossbar right here. It uses four bolts and all the hardware is provided. This is just as strong as any other welded assembly that is out there. This does bolt into the frame of our truck and does require drilling. Next I'll go ahead and give you some measurements to help you out in selecting some accessories.

From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground's going to be about 19" and from the center of your hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper is going to be about 4". Now we'll go ahead and show you how we installed the hitch. First part of our install is actually getting the truck ready. In most cases you have the spare tire located right here, however, this part we don't have to worry about that one, but you would have to lower the spare tire and tire out of the way to put the hitch up. This is going to be one of the arms right here, and we put it in place around the slot right here, and also, for a Ford, these tabs point away from the center of the hitch. We'll take the 1-1/2" long bolt, put it through, with a 1/2" lock washer and a nut.

We're just going to snug them up and that's it. Then we'll go ahead and repeat the same process for the rest of the four holes, and repeat this on either side of the hitch as well. At this point we'll get an extra set of hands to help lift up the hitch. You could clamp this in place, but if we can go ahead and put it up against the frame and make sure it's up against this rivet on this side here, make sure it's even on the frame, and we'll just spray paint the holes to help mark the locations. With our hitch out of the way, we can see where our paint marks are, and then we'll go ahead and drill out our holes. We'll use a smaller piloted hole, like 1/4" or so and then work up to our final hole size.

You can use a 1/2" drill bit, however, if you can go up to a 9/16, makes it a little bit easier to install the hardware if you can do that. I'm just going to find the center, and drill my pilot hole. We're going to repeat the same process for our remaining five holes. Now we've got our holes drilled, let's go ahead and put in our hardware. Require 00:03:14 the longer 1/2" bolts and then also the 1-1/4" by 1-1/2" spacer. We'll install in our holes that we drilled out, and then with an extra set of hands we can install our hitch. We'll install the hardware on the front bolts first. On the bottom we'll get the plate with the hole that's offset, a lock washer, and a nut. We'll do that on both sides, but still leave it loose. With the hitch being held up by these bolts, one on each side, we can push this bolt up out of the way, and install the spacer block that goes in between the hitch and the frame. Then we install the same fasteners below. Offset block, lock washer, and nut. Nothing goes in between here, it's just the plate, the lock washer, and a nut. Just do the same on both sides of the hitch. Now with all the hardware loosely installed and the hitch in place, we'll go ahead and tighten down our hardware. We're going to need a 3/4" wrench and a socket to do this. Once we got our bolts snugged down we'll go ahead and torque the bolts down as described in the instructions. At this point our hitch is fully installed, all that remains is to go ahead and add our electrical bracket. It just simply bolts onto this tab right here that's pre-existing. We'll need a 3/8 nut driver to use the hardware that comes with it to install it. That'll finish it for the B&W Heavy Duty Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number BWHDRH25122 on this 1988 Ford F-250.

I just got this hitch today in the mail, it's awesome! Extremely well built and sturdy and the etrailer box kept it safe no dings or dents even. On a regular Chevy truck it will fit perfectly and installation is very straightforward but I would recommend having a friend help hold it while you get two bolts started. I installed it on a 85 Chevy k30 m1008 military truck. On these trucks people have problems with the shackle mounts fitting with a hitch and this one is no different. Some modifications will be needed to the shackle mounts, or the shackle mounts can be removed. 497538

Great hitch, I didn’t even have to drill one hole in the frame on my 1988 GMC v3500, it bolted right in. The receiver tucked under the bumper very good The only thing I didn’t like was the trailer wiring plug bracket because it didn’t accommodate the new style 7-way and 4-way plug that come on the new Chevy trucks 584581

This is the third hitch I have purchased. Not because they are bad but because they are GREAT! I have three 78-87 era Chevrolet Military trucks, M1008 (2) and a M1028. I pull a lot of stuff around and after the first hitch and its performance I decided to put the same hitch on all three! Highly recommend this hitch and etrailer.com. 267566

This is a really nice, really heavy duty hitch. It also works with other brands of vehicles so if one wanted to could take it off before selling and reuse. (My truck is a 1988 F250) Installation was very straight forward, basically get a helper, hold hitch up to frame, mark bolt holes with pen or starter punch, and then drill consecutively larger holes till you get to 1/2 inch. Bolt up, torque, and you are off to the races. I did not remove the spare tire but wish I had. It made holding the top of the bolts very difficult. Save time and remove the spare tire as your first step.! 555572


Comments

This hitch part # BWHDRH25122 is a custom fit for the 1988 F250. It it still a good idea to use the fit guide and make sure it will fit the next truck. It is not a custom fit for every vehicle.

I received the hitch receiver without any shipping damage and all of the hardware was included for the installation. The information etrailer has about the part on their website was very useful in making a decision as to which hitch was best for me. I was able to install the hitch on my 1982 Chevrolet longbed pickup by myself, laying on the ground under the truck without raising the truck off the ground. It was a little challenging for me but I only had to drill one hole for the spare tire carrier bracket for the rear hanger that had to be relocated as stated in the installation instructions. I also had to remove the left and right side bumper support brackets as also mentioned was required in the installation instructions. Didn’t want to do that but the step bumper is still bolted to the frame by other brackets that support it fine. I am very pleased overall with this class V receiver hitch and would recommend it. It is just what I needed and wanted. 569501

I ordered this hitch for my 84 Chevy D30 military truck. After a few modifications to the existing mounting brackets for the tow hooks and the rear bumper I installed the new hitch assembley. Make sure you loose install all bolts first before tightening. Tighten new hitch assembly last. One of the most difficult parts is getting the Pindel hitch bolts lined up. I would suggest a good tapered line up bar. 494426

Outstanding product from B&W. I installed this receiver on a 1985 K10, I had to drill the frame of the truck for the middle hole but not a big deal. Fit great otherwise, easy to install and ordering and delivery of product was spot on, would have received 5 stars if I didn't have to drill. 640497

- BWHDRH25122
by:

The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because two holes - one on each side - were off by a half hole diameter. No problem, I made the holes a little bigger with my cutting torch, but those who don't have that luxury may need to pay a shop for 10 minutes of labor. Sturdy and looks good. 590353

After having a previous popular name brand (Chinese made) hitch literally fail, I decided to buy the strongest hitch I could find. B&W is an American company and their products are made in the USA with exceptional materials. My B&W hitch is on my 1 ton dually that regularly tows 10,000 lbs and I have seen zero issues such as cracked welds or bending that my previous hitch experienced. B&W has this hitch rated at 16,000lbs so I am extremely comfortable with the loads I pull. I have full confidence in B&W whether I'm towing a couple pallets of concrete to a jobsite or my classic cars to a show. I expect this to be the last hitch I buy for my truck. Also, etrailer has the best pricing I found along with tech support that cannot be matched. 582024

I found the product to be solid and well thought out. It came with all the hardware and the instructions were complete and easy to follow. I have an 89 Chevy crew cab & chassis with duel tanks and this product is not a direct fit for this frame as it is 2 inches shorter than a standard crew cab. So I welded in a 4 inch section from another frame to extend mine then added stiffening plates to the bottom and outside and then bolted on the hitch as you would a standard frame. I went beyond the norm but if you have a standard frame this is a very easy and simple product to install. 157980

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Trailer Hitch for a 1976 Chevy C or K Series Short Bed Stepside Pickup
  • We have some hitch options that fit your 1976 Chevy C or K series short bed stepside pickup. In this case the stepside bed does not matter. The length does. You can use Curt Class III hitch # 13028 or Class IV hitch # C14082. For # C14082 the frame width will need to be 34 inches (measured outside to outside). Or you can use Draw-Tite hitch # 75034-011 (does not fit models with heavy duty suspension). I have linked instructions for these hitches for you.

  • Which Trailer Hitch Fits 1977 Ford F-250 with 34 inch Wide Trailer Frame
  • Based on the frame dimensions you listed for your 1977 Ford F-250 you actually have a cab and chassis model which has the narrower 34 inch wide frame. That means instead the hitch you need is the Curt part # 13028 which is confirmed as a fit for your vehicle and it's cab and chassis style frame.

  • Trailer Hitch Needed for a 2001 Ford F-350 with Regal Body and a 9' Bed

It fits cab and chassis models with a frame that is 34" wide outside to outside with a 5-1/2" drop. If you have an 8" drop then you need the B&W part # BWHDRH25198 instead which has the same weight ratings.

The Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Class V # 41947 is a confirmed fit and also has a 2 inch hitch receiver opening. It also has a maximum GTW of 15,000 pounds.

  • Side to Side Measurements for B&W Class V Trailer Hitch # BWHDRH25122
  • B&W hitch # BWHDRH25122 is designed to fit many trucks including the 1967 Ford F-350 as long as it has (or had) a stock factory bumper. Most of the trucks of that era had a 34 inch frame width which this hitch will fit. But to answer your question the distance between the side plates is 33-3/8 inches and the hole center to hole center distance is 36 inches. I measured them myself. If your frame width is the more uncommon 37-1/2 inch width then I recommend Curt hitch # C15511 which is...

  • Class V Trailer Hitch for 1973 Ford F-350 with 34 Inch Frame
  • I checked with B&W and the Class V B&W Heavy-Duty Trailer Hitch # BWHDRH25122 is a confirmed fit for the 34 inch frame on your 1973 Ford F-350 that has a 10 inch step bumper. The only thing you may need to do is remove or modify the spare tire carrier (if your truck has one) in order to ensure there is not interference with the hitch. I have added a link to the installation instructions of this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Trailer Hitch for a 1997 Ford F-250/F-350 Cab and Chassis Model
  • For 1997 a cab and chassis model would have an outside to outside frame width of 34 inches. If that is the case you can use # 13028 which is for the cab and chassis models. Cab and chassis hitches for the 1997 F-250 or F-350 appear in the same list as the regular pickup models so that is probably why you didn't see it. We also have hitch # C14082 for the cab and chassis models. The difference between these hitches is the capacity. Hitch # 13028 is rated for 600 pounds tongue weight and...

  • Would the B and W Hitch part # BWHDRH25122 Fit Truck with 34 inch Wide Trailer Frame
  • 34 inch frame widths are pretty common cab and chassis trucks. The B and W Hitch part # BWHDRH25122 that you referenced is designed to fit cab and chassis trucks with a 34 inch width measured from outside to outside on trailer frames. If you measured your truck frame and it measures 34 inches from outside to outside the mounting brackets of the part # BWHDRH25122 would be positioned correctly. You most likely would need to drill holes in the frame to get the hitch to bolt up.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 1970 Ford F-100 Styleside with Standard Bumper
  • Modification and/or relocation of the spare tire mounting bracket is going to be a possibility for any of the trailer hitches for your 1970 Ford F-100 styleside with standard bumper.

  • Hitch Recommendation to Fit Frame Width of 34 inches
  • Since you have a standard cab and chassis frame dimension on your shuttle bus we have the B and W Hitch part # BWHDRH25122 which will have mounting brackets that are spaced properly. It drops a bit more than 2 inches though. It's actually 5 inches down but should still work well. You'll probably have to drill the frame of your vehicle to get the hitch to bolt up though.

  • How Does B&W Trailer Hitch Mount to a 1975 Chevy 1-Ton Dually Pickup Truck
  • On B&W trailer hitch # BWHDRH25122 the mounting brackets are oriented the same for all applications. The tabs point in but attach to the bottoms of the frame rails. The customer submitting photo appears to have some other component installed. The upper brackets in that picture are not part of the hitch assembly. They appear to be bumper brackets. Once installed the receiver should be right under the bottom of the bumper of very close especially since you have a stock bumper on your 1975...
