How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2013 Ford F-150

Today on this 2013 Ford F150 were going to install part number 75691 from Draw-Tite. This is what the hitch looks once its installed on the vehicle. Next well go ahead and give you some measurements that will help you out in selecting some accessories such as a ball mount, a bicycle rack, and a cargo carrier. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground will be 20-1/4 inches, from the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper will be about 2-3/4 inches. First off well go ahead and remove the spare tire, it makes things a lot easier to see and install the hitch, although its not completely necessary. Now well go ahead and show you where the hitch installs on the vehicle.

With an extra set of hands well go ahead and install the hitch. On the holes underneath the bumper well install the bolt, the concial toothed washer, and you want to make sure the teeth on the washer are always facing towards the hitch. Now on a Ford attachment with the large hole on the bumper bracket they will get the bolt, the concial toothed washer, the block, and then a small round spacer something with an extra stiff washer and then a concial toothed washer and nut, thats your thick washer, well go in the large oval hole thats next the bumper bracket. When were done with the driver side well be repeating the same process over on the passenger side. Now with all our hardware loosely installed well go ahead and tighten down the bolts.

Now when we tighten down the Ford attachments well make sure the thick washer is in the bumper bracket and that the hitch is slapped against the bumper bracket. With all our hardware tightened down well go ahead and torque them down as specified in the instructions. Then we can go ahead and re-install the spare-tire. With that it, that will finish it for our install of part number 75691 from Draw-Tite on our 2013 Ford F150.
