Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for Towing With 2021 Ford Explorer King Ranch


I'm looking for a hitch to add to my 2021 Ford Explorer King Ranch. I will be towing a trailer with this hitch so whatever is best for towing would be great. I don't know a lot about hitches so I thought I would ask and see what you have to say about it.

For towing with your 2021 Ford Explorer King Ranch, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76320. This is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver. It also has a concealed cross tube to help maintain the factory look. Although this is fairly similar to the Curt hitch # CU78FR, it has a 900 lb maximum tongue weight which is much higher than the Curt at 600 lbs, giving you an advantage when towing or using accessories.

Since you will be towing you will also want a reliable 4-way wiring harness. The best choice is the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118599. This plugs into existing wiring on your vehicle and provides you with a 4-way connection to power your trailer's signal lights.

If you need a ball mount, the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900 is a great choice. This kit has a 1-7/8" and 2" ball, as well as a ball mount bag to store everything in. It also comes with two ball mounts, one with a 3/4" rise or 2" drop and the other with a 2-3/4" rise or 4" drop.

I have attached some review and installation videos for you to check out.
