Trailer Hitch for a 2005 Ford F-150 that Looks Like a 2006 Ford F-150


Hi I have a 2005 Ford F-150 super crew and have been trying to find an exact fit hitch. The problem I have is my truck has the frame to bumper reinforcement brakets that appear on the 2006Ford show in your video for drawtite hitch 75506 Is it possible I need a 2006 style hitch?


Expert Reply:

Are you talking about the saddle bracket that goes across the back of the vehicle on the 2006 or are you talking about the vibration dampers on the 2005? I suppose it is possible that your truck could have components on it for a 2006 if it was built late in the 2005 cycle. But it does not seem likely they would use a whole different frame.

What I have done is linked instructions for a 2005 hitch, # C13352, and a video, as well as instructions and a video for a 2006 hitch, # 75506, along with a video. You can compare them all to your truck to determine which you need to go with.

For either hitch I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # EBMK4. It comes with a ball mount, interchangeable ball set, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If you need to add trailer wiring you can use # 18252 for either year.
