For your 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis the Curt hitch part # 13707 has been confirmed as a fit and would have the towing capacities of 4,000 lbs total trailer weight and 400 lbs tongue weight.

We have suspension enhancements available for your vehicle, but since I don't know the weight of your boats/trailer it's hard to say if they would be necessary. The Firestone part # F4107 has been confirmed as a fit for your vehicle though.

Be sure not to also exceed the towing capacities of your vehicle that are listed in the owners manual.

Since you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

For trailer wiring you would then want the part # 119179KIT.
