Do all 2000 Ford Rangers Have a Trailer Hitch


Someone was interested in buying my vehicle. They said they wanted a mechanic to check it out, which I was fine with. Well when I pulled up to this mechanic shop, it was some guys house. He looked over the whole vehicle and said it was in great condition the vehicle was a state vehicle before I bought it about 4 months ago. He then looked under the back of the truck and stated that there was a back crossmember missing. I looked under to see what he was talking about and saw nothing missing I went to school for mechanics. And there was no evidence that there was something missing. The only thing he was going on was the fact that he had a 2000 ford ranger pulled apart in his basement, and because that one had it, and mine didnt, my car was then a piece of junk. I then proceeded to take it to 3 actual mechanic shops who all said that there was nothing missing. So my question is, does every 2000 ford ranger have a back crossmember?


Expert Reply:

Sounds like you are referring to a trailer hitch. And no, not all vehicles come from the factory with trailer hitches installed so the one you are selling just may not have ever had one.

To see what a trailer hitch looks like that would fit your vehicle check out the Curt hitch part # 13019. I attached a picture of what one looks like.
