Expert Answers about Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty


  • Is Drilling Required to Install Reese Strait-Line RP66075
  • You are correct that the Reese Strait-Line # RP66075 is going to require some drilling into the frame for installation. That weight distribution system is a heavy-duty model for 2-1/2" hitches, and each of the systems available for that size hitch receiver is going to require drilling. I've attached a link to a video review of the Strait-Line for you, as well as a link to our page with each of our weight distribution systems that fit 2-1/2" hitches.

  • Will All of the Aftermarket Trailer Hitches Designed for a 2002 Ford F-350 Have the Same Drop?
  • The amount of recess and drop is really similar on all the hitches for your 2002 Ford F-350. For the least amount of drop, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 13355 or the # C14355. They both have the 2-1/2 inches from the outside of the bumper to the center of the hitch pin and the 18-1/2 inch measurement from the ground to the top of the inner receiver tube. These hitches have the least amount of ground clearance restriction. The # C13014...

I personally can't speak for the OEM filter from Ford itself, but I do know that the Direct-Fit Pro Guard D2 has a 99-percent filtration efficiency rate making it one of the best filters out there. This filter is made in the USA and has a 2-year limited warranty which should settle...

  • Can Curt Q24 Legs Fit Into Ford Puck System and Base Rails?
  • You could use the Curt Q24 in the bed of your 2007 Ford F-350 but it would require you to take the OEM hitch legs # C16017 off of head unit # C16545 and replace them with base legs # 16125-SK13. From there you could use the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Ford # C16448-204 which will give you the necessary base rails. I've added a link to video reviews and an install of this kit for you to take a look at.

  • Recommended Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2004 Ford F-250
  • I do have a front mount trailer hitch receiver for your 2004 Ford F-250 but the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C31071 is only confirmed to fit GM vehicles. For a front mount trailer hitch receiver that will fit your truck, I recommend using the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 31114.

This is compatible with newer Ford F-350 models but it is not the correct adapter for your 2011 F-350. For your F-350 you will want the Plug-In Wiring Adapter # 3034-P instead. They have the same connector for your F-350 but they are wired differently. If you are still having problems after switching out your adapter let me know and I...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2006 Ford F-250 Long Bed
  • There are some versions of the Pull Rite Superglide hitches like the 2700 that are designed to fit the industry standard fifth wheel rails like the part # RP30035 that you referenced. You'd have to check to see what you have or get back to me with your hitch number. Since you have a long bed truck you really wouldn't need a slider hitch like the Superglide as they are designed for giving short bed trucks turning clearance.

  • Comparing Curt X5 5th Wheel Base Rail Adapters and Compatibility with Draw-Tite Gooseneck

And X5 adapter # C16210 fits Curt Double Lock, Flip and Store gooseneck hitches such as # C60720. The biggest difference to note is the shank from the bottom of the adapter is a different length. The # C16210 has a shank that is 4.41 inches long and the # C16220 has a shank that is 4.66 inches long. So the difference in the length also means the hole...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Towing Package for a 2000 Ford F-250
  • To determine the maximum trailer weight you can tow with your 2000 Ford F-250 you will need to gather both the Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) and the Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) of your truck. This can all be found on the information tag located inside the driver door jamb. If you subtract the Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) of your truck from the (GCWR) that will give you the maximum Gross Trailer Weight (GTW) you can safely tow. The maximum towing capacity isted for your truck will vary...

  • Adding a 4- and 7-Way Trailer Connector to a 2003 Ford F-150 with 4- and 5-Way Connectors
  • You won't have to replace all the wiring on your 2003 Ford F-250 to install a 7 and 4-Way connector. All you will need is # 37185. The 4-Way you have will plug into the 37185 (the 4-Way functions are retained). Then ground the white wire to the truck frame. To wire in the remaining wires you will first trace your 4-Way wiring forward under the truck where it plugs into another harness. Inside this harness there will be an orange wire and a blue wire. The orange wire will go to the 37185...

  • Compatibility of Gorilla-Lift Utility Trailer Tailgate Lift Assist with Flat to the Deck Gate
  • The Gorilla-Lift Utility Trailer Tailgate Lift Assist w/ Cable - 300 lbs # GL1 is not designed for the fold flat gate. With some simple modifications, it could work depending on your mounting location. If you mount on the side of the trailer walls at the correct height it could wrap around to work properly. The other option is to use a connection to the gate that would allow you to unhook it when folded flat. Use of a carabiner or quick-link would make that easy.

  • The only solution available to use a 5th wheel hitch in the Bulldog gooseneck hitch on your 2007 Ford F-350 is the Hi-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # 9480. It has an adapter that is compatible with the round hitch receiver that you have. Although we do recommend using a sliding 5th wheel hitch on a truck that has a bed shorter than 8 feet, it is possible for you to use the Hi-Rise for your situation. This is the most cost-effective solution, but it will make maneuvering...

  • Recommended Brake Controller for 2010 Ford F-350 with Factory Integrated Brake Controller
  • When driving, the brake controller should not lock your trailer brakes. It should apply the brakes firmly for a quick stop, but locking the brakes actually reduces traction. If they lock at a stop or very slow speed that isn't an issue, but they should not lock up with normal driving. The brake power on your integrated controller is adjustable and should be adjusted for normal driving preferences. If you feel your integrated controller isn't functioning as it should, you should consult...

  • Can 7-Way/4-Way HM40975 be Used in Fifth Wheel Gooseneck Truck Bed Wiring Harness
  • The only way to accomplish what you are looking to do is use the part # 40167 and then swap out the 7-way that comes with it for the # HM40975. We don't sell the # HM40975 in a gooseneck 7-way configuration because most people would not also need a 4-way up in the truck bed as well.

These springs are designed to compress up to 50 percent under the load, but will not increase your weight carrying capacity. They are a bolt on installation and are maintenance free.

  • How to Determine If Handle of Reese 5th Wheel Hitch w/Slider RP30083 Will Fit Under Tonneau
  • On the Reese Sliding Hitch part # RP30083 the handle sticks up 4 inches from the head height of the hitch. The hitch head has an adjustable height range of 15-1/4" - 18". So that means you'd have to determine what hitch height you'd need and then add 4 inches to that and then measure from the floor of the truck bed up that distance. That will be where the handle will be. To determine the hitch height you'd need you need to measure from the pin box plate (not the king pin) down to the...

To do that you would need a circuit tester such as # 3808 to test the wiring on the vehicle to determine the functions. The 4-Way would then splice in as follows: white wire...

  • Suspension Enhancement for Leveling 2012 Ford F-250 When Pulling Fifth Wheel

They are designed to prevent the sagging you are experiencing and should put you pretty close to level. If you take a look at the attached photo, you can clearly see the difference the springs will make. They have the additional perk of reducing sway, which I imagine can be an issue when towing a 42 foot trailer. I've added a link to a video install of these so you can take...

  • What Does Class S Mean on a Tire Chain
  • When tire chains are Class S compatible, like the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains # PW3029C that you referenced, it means that they are specialized for limited-clearance applications. Sometimes traditional tire chains would be too large for certain vehicles and could cause damage to spring clips, fenders, braces, splash pans, fuel lines, brake lines, or brake controls. If you check your owner's manual it will specify if you need to use Class S chains or not.

If that is what you have then they are NOT compatible with Demco Hijacker SL Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # DM6076SL-16K.

  • Comparison of Timbren's Versus SumoSprings for a 2001 Ford F-250
  • For your 2001 Ford F-250 I recommend using the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System part # TFR250SDE instead of the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs part # SSR-114-54 because the Timbren springs are rated up to 6,000 lbs whereas the SumoSprings are only rated up to 2,800 lbs. Therefore, the Timbren springs are going to do a much better job of handling the added weight of your 5th wheel trailer. In addition to leveling support, these springs will also improve handling and...
