Hitch Recommendation for a 1998 Ford Ranger  


Hello, I was just wondering what rear mounting hitch would fit onto my 1998 Ford Ranger. I recently replaced the rear bumper with a Westin FEY Diamond Step bumper part #66000 if that makes any difference as to what models will fit. Thanks,

For a trailer hitch for your 1998 Ford Ranger you would want the Curt Hitch part # 13138 as it is a Class III hitch confirmed to fit your vehicle that is the most popular with our customers. This is a round tube hitch with plenty of capacity that would work well for you. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

For trailer wiring you would want the part # 118325.
