Will Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 37130 Fit Around Full Size Spare Tire on a 1996 Ford F-350


will this work with a full size spare in the stock location 1996 ford f-350 4x4 std cab with stock exhaust


Expert Reply:

We have not heard of anyone having trouble with the spare tire when using Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 37130 on a Ford truck like your 1996 F-350. That would indicate that provided the spare is a stock size and not an over-sized spare there won't be any issues.

If you plan on doing some towing I recommend 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 have the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, use the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

And if your truck does not already have a trailer connector you could use # 118316 to add a 4-Way flat connector to the rear of the vehicle.
