Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ford F-150 without Tow Package with 10k Capacity


Hello, Since prices of pickups are so high, I am considering purchasing a used F-150, or Silverado however, the ones Ive seen do not have the factory tow package. My question is, do you guys sell the items necessary to get the vehicles to tow at their max rating? For example, I if buy a 3.5 ecoboost F-150, would you guys be able to get me to the 10,000 or so pounds that the truck is rated for?

If you bought a 2018 Ford F-150 like you referenced without a factory trailer hitch we have the Curt hitch part # C14017 that is a confirmed fit for it and has a 10,000 lb trailer towing capacity like want. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P3 Brake Controller part # 90195. This is our best selling brake controller because of how well it works and how easy it is to setup. This is a proportional brake controller that senses the amount of braking the tow vehicle is applying and applies a proportionate amount to the trailer brakes. This will be the last brake controller you buy. It can easily be transferred to future vehicles as well. To install this controller would only require you to use the install harness part # 22292 and you'd be set.

For a ball mount a great option is an adjustable ball mount which allows you to adjust the ball height so that you can tow various trailer heights. For that the Flash E Series ball mount part # FA42-00-2600 would work great as it has a 10k capacity when used with the larger ball mount size.
