Helpful Expert Reply:

First, you will need a trailer hitch that is capable of the weight of your trailer with the dozer on it. The only hitch that will fit your 2002 Ford F-350 and has the capacity is TorkLift hitch # TLF1002-30. In order to get it to its maximum capacity (30K) you would have to use the Everest weight distribution # TLWD1000.

Then you would need a shank, # TLM9010 or # TLM9011, and a ball, # C40085.

Then the only problem is the coupler on the trailer. If it is a lunette ring or pintle hook then it won't work with the Everest system. You could replace what is on the front of the trailer with a flat mount coupler such as # BD4425000317. They max out at 25,000 pounds.

The other issue is the truck itself. You will need to consult the vehicle owner's manual to determine the capacity of your specific configuration and avoid surpassing it.
