Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Ford F-150 - Curt

Today on our 2017 Ford F-150, we're going to be taking a look at and also showing you how to install the CURT custom-fit class 4 trailer hitch receiver. This offers a 2 inch x 2 inch receiver tube opening. Its part number is C14016. Here's what our hitch is going to look like installed. You're going to see most of the cross tube as it comes around, meets here in the middle at our receiver tube opening. Now, this is a class 4 hitch, so while it still has the 2 inch x 2 inch receiver tube opening, this is going to be a really nice, strong hitch that'll take care of most of those hauling needs you might have. You've got safety chain connection points that are going to come up here, a nice plate style.

Large opening, so even if you're using the bigger clevis hooks you shouldn't have any issue getting those connected. You'll see our 5/8 diameter pin hole. That's going to be what we secure our ball mount with or any accessory we might put in the back of our hitch. There's plenty of room around there so even if you decide on an anti-rattle bolt or a locking hitch pin, you shouldn't have any interference to worry about. Now, when it comes to weight ratings, we've got a 1000 lb towing weight capacity, so that's the maximum downward force we can put here at the receiver tube opening. We have a 10,000 lb gross trailer weight rating, so that'd be the total weight of your trailer and anything you we're to load up on it.

It is also rated for use with weight distribution. If you do use weight distribution, the tongue weight's going to go up to 1200 lb and the gross trailer weight rating goes up to 12,000 lb. Of course, we need to check the owner's manual on the F-150. We want to see what it's rated for, and we'll use whichever of those numbers are the lowest. A few measurements that will be helpful for selecting your ball mount, bike rack, or hitch cargo carrier will be from the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube opening. We've got about 16 3/4 in.

Then from the center of our hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of our bumper is about 4 3/4 in. Now we're going to begin our installation with our spare tire removed. That's going to give you the room you need to get in to your attachment point. Now, on each side of the truck we've got two of those. One's going to be located right here at the rear. This is pretty much the very back side of the frame rail.

You're going to see a little indentation here with a hole. Then we move forward from there. We've got a set of double holes right here. We're going to go past this slightly larger hole to the second set of double holes that we've got right here. We're going to be using the upper of those two. Now, in the recessed area that we have here, we need to get a U-shaped spacer put over that. That's going to take up the gap. To do that, you're going to use a piece of tape. It just needs to be held in place temporarily until we get our bolt and our hitch up here. Just going to tape that in, and of course we want to cut out an area for our bolt to pass through. Just like that. Now, on our passenger side there is a ground wire that comes down, and if it's present on your vehicle, we'll need to remove that. We're going to return the fastener to our customer and we'll reattach it later. It's going to require the use of a 10 mm socket. There's a bent tab there. You're also going to flatten that out. That'll just help us when we reattach it. Now, if we come forward from that attachment point, we're going to have the rear leaf spring connection point. We'll go to the double set of holes just in front of that. We're going to use the lower hole. Now, to get our hardware in place we'll use our pull wire. We're going to go through our hole and we can come right out of the rear of the frame for our rear attachment point, like that, slide on our square hold spacer block, and we'll thread on one of our carriage bolts. I like to thread these on quite a bit because they can be sometimes difficult to pull through. Now, to get this in place we'll feed our spacer block in separately from our bolt. You can use your finger on the back side to give a little bit of pressure. You want to pull that out and then let it rest in the frame. We'll pull that through our hitch once it's in place, and that'll hold it up. Now we'll do the same thing for our forward attachment point here. Now we'll repeat that exact same process for our passenger side. Now with the help of an extra set of hands, we'll get our hitch lifted up into position, and we're going to pull these rear fish wires through first. You just feed them into the side plate of the hitch, we'll bring it up, and pull those through. Now we can remove our pull wires and we'll want to add on one of our flange nuts on each of our bolts to hold our hitch in position. These will just be loosely installed for now. Now, for the forward attachment point, there's going to be a gap, so we need to put the spacer block on the outside of our frame rail as well. Then just like that, and then we'll pull that through. Now let's repeat that process over on the passenger side. Now we're ready to get our hitch snugged down. As we do this, we want to ensure that the hole that our ground wire was attached to is visible inside of this hole. Then we'll snug all of our fasteners down. Now we'll check our instructions. We want to torque each of our nuts down to the appropriate specifications. Now we'll use the M8 screw to reattach the ground here. This is going to require a 13 mm socket. It's got a little bit bigger head than what the first one did. That will complete our installation of the CURT custom fit class 4 trailer hitch receiver, part number C14016 on our 2017 Ford F-150.

Fortunately this hitch is rugged. The shipping packaging was not adequate to accommodate hitch. By the time it got to my shop it was half out of the box. The areas exposed did get scratched. I have not installed it yet but it looks much more heavy duty than the factory installed hitch. 370772

Installed it myself (4 Jack stands and a floor jack), but would recommend 2 people to do the installation. 649808

The hitch looks very nice, heavy duty, exactly what I was looking for. But, when the UPS box arrived, the hitch had busted out of the box, and the brake controller & plug was almost able to fall out of the box. If I had not been able to be home when it arrived, if there was missing items inside, I'm sure it could have been an issue. but all is well. A few scratches and scars, but was not structurally damaged. I will diffidently order from etrailer.com again. 346648

Hitch is really nice quality but required me to lose my spare tire. No mention of this on the website. 2019 Ford Raptor Supercrew. Hitch fits but spare tire cannot fit with hitch installed. Even when deflated. Not even close! Also, they make it look easy to install in the video but it took the shop 2 hours. Its not easy to install. Need 3 people and a lift for sure. I'm happy with the hitch and bought an inflator/slime kit for emergencies but this seems like a HUGE thing to mention that you cannot fit the spare tire back in. I'd give it 4 stars if there was a mention about losing the spare tire when installed so i would have known prior to purchasing and installing. -1 for installation difficulty and -2 for not mentioning the spare tire delete needed. 604469


Comments

According to Curt, the hitch wasnt test fit on a Raptor, as the frame and inboard side of the rear bumper isnt different than the regular F150. However, since the Raptor uses a much larger 315/70-17 tire than whats found on the standard model, Curt wasnt surprised the spare tire couldnt be stowed in its original location after the hitch was installed. As of mid February 2019, we hadnt had the opportunity to install that hitch on a 2019 Raptor either.

Great speed in getting it to me. Found that the spacers that are shown inside the frame in the instructions on the front bolts are not needed. Putting them inside caused the bolts to be too short. This was found out of course after I had put them in. 642382

Fast free shipping. Installation was exactly as the instructional video. The trailer hitch did break through the box causing scratches to the powder coat. Overall very, extremely pleased with etrailer. 343302

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Curt Class IV Hitch Compatibility for 2018 Ford F-150 with Factory-Installed Hitch
  • Curt 2-inch Class IV hitch # C14017 is intended for the F-150 without the factory-installed hitch, as you noted. Factory hitches are built into the truck's frame in such a way that it is really not possible to remove them. They are integrated into the truck's construction and removing one, if it were possible, could affect the new vehicle's warranty. My contact at Curt said this is a step he would not recommend for a new vehicle like your F-150. You might inquire of your local Ford...

  • Trailer Hitch with Higher Capacity than Factory Hitch on a 2018 Ford F-150
  • With your existing hitch on your 2018 Ford F-150 the maximum weight you can tow, even when using weight distribution, is that 9,100 pounds you quoted. If you were to install an aftermarket one such as # C14016 then you would still be limited to 9,100 pounds but would not have to use weight distribution to reach that capacity. So what it comes down to is whether or not you want to use weight distribution. Since you have 2 trailers you may not want to move the system back and forth between...

  • I have a couple of solutions for you to choose from so that you can safely tow your new boat trailer with your 2015 Ford F-150. The first thing that you can do is install another hitch that is rated for higher towing capacities. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C14016 is a Class IV hitch, which has a 10,000 lbs Gross Towing Weight (GTW) and 1,000 lbs Tongue Weight (TW). If you were to use a Weight Distribution (WD) system as well, it would bump those totals up to 12,000 lbs GTW and...

I've linked an installation video for you. If you prefer a hitch that has a higher weight rating, the Curt # C14016 is a Class IV, 2 inch hitch rated at 10,000 towing and 1,000 pounds tongue weight.

  • High Capacity Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ford F-150 with Factory Hitch
  • We have a trailer hitch that is a fit for your 2018 Ford F-150 that has the factory hitch but since the factory hitch is part of the rear bumper we can't recommend a way to remove it. The Curt hitch part # C14016 would be your best option as it has a 1,000 lb tongue weight rating and a 10,000 lb total trailer weight rating.

If you already have a hitch and are looking to upgrade then you will want to use part # C14016 instead.

I will say though that multi-fit trailer hitches are going to require a much more involved installation process that will likely require drilling into the truck's frame or other vehicle modifications.
