2005 Ford F-150

Mine arrived with no hardware kit or instructions. I called etrailer and they sent the hardware kit asap. This Curt class IV trailer hitch worked great for our 2005 ford f150 flareside. It recommends to remove the rear exhaust hanger for easier installation. This was unnecessary for our truck. I would recommend removing the spare tire. The access hole to route the wire is on the outside of the frame above the leaf spring NOT the inside. It was a very simple install. I would reccomend this this hitch and Etrailer to anyone.


Received a hitch that was only wrapped in cheap plastic, no box. Hitch waa scratched up and did not come with any mounting hardware. Waste of my time and money.

I am very sorry to hear that the hitch arrived without hardware and with scratches. This is certainly not who we want the hitches to arrive. I will have our customer service team reach out.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 07/29/2022

2005 Ford F-150

I would have given 5 stars but my receiver was delivered without a box and missing the hardware. It had a piece of box with the shipping label wrapped around it with plastic wrap. The receiver was beat up and scratched in several places. I paid extra for the delivery only to find out it was incomplete when delivered. I called and was sent another set of hardware but I had to wait several days before receiving it.

This receiver fit perfectly. Installed it by myself but it took longer than I expected. When fishing bolts through I would suggest doing the ones further from the access hole first. The wire would get caught up and I had to keep cutting pieces off before starting the next bolt. I would recommend picking it up all at once as level as possible. I loosened the exhaust pipe but I don’t think it needed to be done. This piece is one solid heavy piece. Looks good on the truck. I don’t have all the proper tools and decided to go with this model instead of the others where you would have to drill holes in the frame. There is no drilling required with this one. I love the way it looks on the truck. The bolts are big and heavy. Not cheap in any way.

2005 Ford F-150

Installed super easy, all I did was bolted on the chain holes first and that held the hitch onto the truck and then I just swung the hitch up and held it up with a jack and a block.

Ford F-150

2004 Ford exdcab Lariat F-150 4X4 After some modifications to factory old hitch & bumper. This hitch fit perfectly & bumper is on truck. Can’t tell from new factory one.


The hitch is really solid. I am pleased with the construction. I struggled with installation. Looking back, a second person would have made it much easier. 3 out of four holes aligned well. The fourth one had to be drilled a bit. Overall, I think it’s a great product that will allow me to pull a trailer to haul materials for home/yard projects. Thanks, J.R.

It is a solid hitch. Highly recommend it.

Perfect fit

2005 Ford F-150

I was surprised how quickly the hitch was delivered, the price, service and quality of the Receiver Hitch is outstanding. Thank you

Very pleased with my purchase, installed without any problems. Ive been towing around a 18 foot trailer, not once have I worried about the tow.
Todd - 06/06/2021


Very nice hitch .
Well constructed.
Only dislike as with other common hitches is the area were the chains attach. Once locking pin is installed,trying to fit size 3 and 4 hooks is a challenge.
A little more room would be nice or different angle for hooks to attach.

2004 Ford F-150

The hitch itself is awesome. I took my 04 f150 to a garage to have it installed. They said that if they did the bumper would have to be removed as it would not fit with the new hitch in place. The project is currently on hold.


Very heavy hitch, took longer to install than stated, but a good quality part. Definitely like it better than the multi piece units from other makers

2004 Ford F-150

I installed it in about 45 min. everything fit as it was supposed to. The wiring is true plug and play and everything worked the first time as it should. The trailer brake made it possible to pull a 9400 lb. loader with this truck.

2004 Ford F-150

This is a solid, well made hitch, I love it. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is because it was shipped in a box with no support, box was totally destroyed during shipping as the hitch was just moving freely inside and half the screws were missing.


The trailer hitch was good it was a little banged up because of shipping maybe you can package the hitch inside the box with more phone so it doesn't bounce around other than that went on the truck perfect

2005 Ford F-150

On time delivery and received all items as advertised. Only wish it came with two spring fish wires as the one that came with it broke with one bolt left to be installed. A small hole in bolt and a piece of wire and the last bolt was installed.

2005 Ford F-150

Fits my 2005 Ford F-150 perfect. Doesn't hang low. Not past bumper. No need to drop exhaust pipe. But do drop the spare tire. No drilling. A little patience and your done. Very strong high tow weight rating.


Perfect fit the first time and best price I could find.

2004 Ford F-150

Replaced the stock hitch on my 2004 f150 perfectly.

2005 Ford F-150

Easy to install and does the job. Would definitely recommend.

2004 Ford F-150

Super fast shipping, love the product

  • Fit & Compatibility of Aftermarket Trailer Hitch #C14357 on 2004 Ford F-150 w/Factory Trailer Hitch
    I spoke to my contact at Curt and he informed me that the Curt Class V Trailer Hitch # C14357 would indeed fit for a 2004 Ford F-150 excluding the Heritage Edition if the factory hitch was removed as long as no portion of the frame or bumper beam is removed in the process of removing the factory hitch. I have linked the above mentioned product to this page for your convenience.

  • Compatibility of the Curt # C14357 on a 2004 Ford F-150
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class IV, # C14357, can fit the 2004 Ford F-150 truck if that has never had a factory installed hitch. The factory hitch uses part of the bumper structure and if removed aftermarket hitches will not be able to mount to the frame and bumper points.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2005 Ford F-150 To Use Trucks Max Towing Capacity
    Your best option would be to go with a trailer hitch that is rated for more weight than what you truck can tow so that you can tow as much as the truck would let you. For that the Curt hitch part # C14357 that you referenced would be a great option confirmed to fit your 2005 Ford F-150. Like you said, this hitch has a capacity of 10,000 lbs and a tongue weight capacity of 1,000 lbs. With towing setups you are limited by the lowest rated component in the setup. So if your truck is rated...

  • Hitch To Replace Factory Hitch On 2004 Ford F-150 Lariat
    The factory hitches are often welded on, so you would need to have the hitch cut off if that is the case to have a replacement. All of the aftermarket hitches from all our manufacturers say will not work with factory mounted hitch, so a hitch like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class IV - 2" # C14357 most likely mounts in the same location which makes sense since you are looking to replace and not add an additional hitch to the existing one. Because it hasn't been fitted...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2005 Ford F-150 to Replace Factory Hitch Compromised by Rust
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C14357 is a confirmed fit for your 2005 Ford F-150 but will not fit with the factory installed hitch. You will need to remove the factory hitch to install an aftermarket hitch like this. This is the strongest hitch option, so it is my recommendation for your application. It is an easy installation and has a nice black powder coat finish to resist rust. This hitch will work very well as long as the rust has not compromised the truck frame.

  • Trailer Towing Capacity of 2005 Ford F-150 with 4.6L Engine
    The photo of your F-150's door jamb sticker indicates a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 6800-lbs. This is the most the truck itself can weigh, including passenger, cargo weight and trailer tongue weight. I checked the online owner's manual for your truck and starting on page 179 the manual notes the towing capacities for each of the many versions of the truck. The manual states: "If your vehicle is not equipped with a heavy-duty trailer towing package, the maximum weight your vehicle...

  • Comparing Curt Trailer Hitches # C14355 and # C14357 for a 2004 Ford F-150
    The difference between Curt trailer hitches # C14355 and # C14357 is the fit list for each. Curt hitch # C14355 fits a 2004 Ford F-150 Heritage Edition and not the New Body 2004 models. Hitch # C14357 fits the New Body style, not the Heritage, but will not fit any models that have the factory trailer hitch. If you have a 2004 New Body style then there are no hitches confirmed to fit on models that have the factory hitch.

  • Towing Capacities, Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2005 Ford F-150 SuperCab 4WD With 5.4L V8
    According to Ford, a 2005 Ford F-150 SuperCab with four-wheel drive and a 5.4L V8 will have a capacity between 7,300 lbs and 9,300 lbs depending on what wheelbase it has and what axle ratio it has. I recommend finding what yours is and looking in your owner's manual, which will have these capacities. Then for a trailer hitch you can add the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C14357 for a heavy duty, Class IV hitch and if you need to add a wiring harness the Plug-N-Tow (R) Vehicle Wiring Harness...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2004 Ford F-150 New Body Style
    Yes, Curt trailer hitch # C14357 will fit the 2004 Ford F-150 new body style. The recommended ball mount for this hitch is # C45341. It takes a ball with a 1-1/4 inch diameter shank. And if your truck did not come with a trailer connector you can use # C55551 to add a 4-Way flat to the rear of the vehicle.

  • Dual Receiver Hitch for 2017 Ford F-250
    Trailer hitch fits for the 2004 Ford F-150 and the 2017 Ford F-250 are not the same. Hitch fits confirmed for each vehicle are shown on the two linked pages. We have 2-inch hitches rated for 10,000-lbs for the F-150 but only 2-1/2-inch hitches of higher capacity for the F-250. Among the fits for the F-250 is the TorkLift SuperHitch Magnum Trailer Hitch # TLF1008-30. This is a dual receiver hitch that features both a 2-1/2-inch and a 2-inch receiver on one hitch.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2004 Ford F-150 Towing 5,500 lbs
    Hi! Although we do not carry the hitch you referenced based on my research it looks like it has a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 lbs and a maximum tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs so you will not want to use it to tow your horse trailer and horses that are 5,500+ lbs. It is unsafe to use a hitch that does not have the correct towing capacity. There are a couple of better options for trailer hitches that I highly recommend checking out. FIrst, if you are certain that your trailer and...

  • Stamp On 2005 Ford F-150 Says 9,900 Lbs but How Much Weight Can I Tow
    I was able to find the owner's manual for the 2005 F-150 4x4 5.4 Supercab Lariat. The 145" wheel base SuperCab 5.4L with 3.73 rear axle ratio has a maximum GCWR of 15,000 lbs if you have 17" tires. It has a maximum trailer weight of 9,300 lbs. If you have 18" tires the GCWR is 14,500 lbs and maximum trailer weight is 8,800 lbs. The 133" wheel base 5.4L and 3.73 rear axle ratio with 17" tires has a GCWR 13,500 lbs and a maximum trailer weight of 7,800 lbs. The 18" tire version has a GCWR...

When used with weight distribution it is rated for 1,000 pounds tongue weight and 10,000 pounds gross trailer weight (limited to the capacity of the vehicle).

  • 2005 Ford F150 XL Trailer Hitch Recommendation for Towing Trailer with Tractor Loaded
    Most likely not. The Curt Bumper Hitch part # E-3S does have a 5,000 lb capacity, but most bumpers do not have anywhere near that capacity. Instead you would need a frame mounted trailer hitch with a higher capacity like the Curt part # C14357. This has a 10k trailer weight rating so as long as your truck has the towing capacity for the tractor and trailer you want to tow (check owner's manual), this hitch would work well for you. For a HD all mount you would want the part # C45341 and...

    Yes, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13352 will fit your 2004 Ford F-150 STX as is confirmed to work on all models that have the new body that did not include the factory hitch. This hitch will require drilling new holes into your frame on your f-150. I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C14357 as it will not require drilling or welding on your f-150. It will instead utilize the factory holes that are already in your frame to mount the hitch. This is also a Class IV hitch...

In addition the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class IV - 2" # C14357 you were looking at is confirmed to fit your truck as long as it does not have a factory trailer hitch receiver.
