Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 1990 Ford F-150

Today on this 1990 Ford F-150 we are going to install part number 14001 from Curt. One of our first steps this involves is we have to lower our spare tire a little bit to get it out of the way. Sometimes this hanger gets in the way. What you have to do is test it. We will go ahead and put the hitch up. Clamp it into position. Mark our holes, and drill out the holes in the frame. Clamping this up into position can be a little bit of a bear so it is a good idea to have an extra set of hands involved. And you see here we have got our hitch here clamped into position. What we will do next is block our holes where it is going to be drilled. We are going to be drilling here, here, and here. We will start off with the pilot hole about a 1/ 4 inch the way up to a 1/ 2 inch. We have got our holes drilled out on the passenger side here.

We are going to repeat the same process back over on the driver side. We have got our holes drilled out. We can go ahead and start installing our hardware. Now inside the frame is going to be a block like this and then the carriage bolt is going to go right through it. We can go ahead and lift the hitch into position. Get your help again. And we will just go put it up there and we will just attach it with a couple of nuts to hold everything in place for now. In the center is this large hole here we are going to use an extra spacer. It is going to be identical back over on the driver side. And then once we get everything started we will go ahead and snug the bolts down. After you have snugged those down and got them flush against the frame, we will go ahead and torque the bolts down as specified in the instructions. All right, and with that, that finishes our install part number 14001 from Curt.

This is the second CURT mfg. class 4 hitch that I've purchased from etrailer.com; each for two different trucks. The website is easy to navigate, the product arrived on time in a sensibly packaged box, and most of all they are made in the USA - which is something I take seriously. No room for improvement here, I'll be back for other items. 200296

All is well with the second hitch, Ive used it numerous times with no issues. The first one was on an older truck that I sold. Thank you again for selling American made products.

you say i received the product at 6:10 am but really it was closer to noon pacific time. i really enjoyed the tracking feature you offered i did not need to wait around a day in advance i new what day it would get here that was really cool. i was afraid to order your product one custermers reveiw said that the one he ordered did not fit and you guys would not help him fix the problem but i did and the one i ordered was a custum fit for my 2002 dodge 2500 it went on quicker then the old one came off, all the parts were there and i guess because it was a custum fit for my truck and i was replaceing a class III hitch that was alresdy on it i did not have to drill any holes i gave it a 4 out of 5 because it did not have a metal protective box mounted on it for the electrical plug receiver i had to cut off the the one on the old hitch and attach it to the bottom back bumper, i chose not to have it welded on the new hitch like it was on the old due to the nice weather proofing paint and the inside being sealed off to the elements. BE SURE TO CHECK THE PRODUCT COMPATIBILLITY FOR YOUR VEHICLE I.E. MID OR FULL SIZE, THANK YOU CURT! 14966

Quality of the unit is excellent, Ford Designers should have a boot put in their rear ends...I am very happy with the purchase (and love my 1993 Ford Bronco, despite lowering the tank to get at the screws easier because I didn't buy the fishing tool to make placing the bolts easier). Bottom line, get the fishing tool and this will be a good quick install, and you will be happy with the product. ...and etrailer is always a great place to get gear...they are my goto. 479829

Patrick, I tried to install my hitch Sunday and found it was the wrong hitch. My frame on my 73 ford F250 is 34 inches wide the 14001 hitch that I orderd was to wide. My frame is about 31and a quarter wide on center, the 14001 is 36 inches wide on center. I got on your web site and started looking at reviews and found that I may need the 14082. I called the 800 # and talked to Wayne H, and he was very helpful, he called the manufacturer and called me back and said the 14082 is the one I need, it's for a 34 inch frame.So I orderd it and he is sending return info for the 14001. I would like to thank you and Wayne for all your help. I will let you know how the 14082 works out once I get it. Thank You Hammer 71367

I'm 75 years old and not getting around like I used to. The Curt class IV hitch aligned perfectly with frame existing holes. Center hole needed to be drilled, easy enough to do. The existing 3500 lb.bumper hitch was removed. Some wiring was attached to frame and needed to be relocated. My son stopped by to help with installation, but we found a floor jack could be used to position hitch without need for extra muscle. Once lifted, we used clamps to hold in place for hole enlargement and drilling. Looks like it will tow much more than truck is certified to pull 585596

Finding parts for old vehicles is often difficult if not impossible. The hitch I purchased from etrailer was of outstanding quality and at a very good price. The product coating was great as I do not have to rust proof it. The hitch was a replacement for the rusted out mess under my truck and will probably outlast the life of the vehicle. Thank You. 729188

Item receive in short time. Took about 15 minutes to install. Fit perfect. Only thing that would have made it better would have been a bracket on it for wiring.

  • Is Curt Class IV 2 Inch Hitch # 14001 the Correct Width to Fit the Frame Rails on 1983 Ford F-100
    When measuring the frame width on a vehicle, you will need to measure from the outside of one frame rail to the outside of the other frame rail. It sounds like you have the 37-1/4 inch frame on your 1983 Ford F-100. The Curt Class IV 2 Inch Hitch, part # 14001, will fit the 1983 Ford F-100 truck with the standard or step bumper. The mounting holes on the hitch will measure 36 inches from center to center, so you should have no problem mounting it to the frame rails of your vehicle. I...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 1976 Ford F-Series Truck with 4 Wheel Drive
    A high boy is a generic term used to encompass all Ford F-250 4x4 trucks from the late 1960s to the late 1970s (circa 1967 to 1977 and a half). If your 1976 is an F-250 with 4 wheel drive, it falls under the high boy umbrella. F-100 and F-150 models are not considered high boys even though 4 wheel drive was an option for some. The high boy trucks came with a different transfer case (what is called a divorced transfer case), the front cross member set up was different, and they sat higher...

    A roll pan bumper is a bumper that basically makes the rear bumper look as if it does not stick out further than the rest of the truck and that is molded into the rear of the truck. Its basically a cosmetic modification that you see on a lot of lowered and/or show trucks. What you have is definitely a deep drop bumper.
