Adding a 7-Way Trailer Connector and Brake Controller to a 1998 Ford Ranger


Hello, I aim to tow a small camper and the manufacturer requires I wire my truck to the 7-prong six around one configuration lights plus electric brakes. Do you sell anything appropriate for my 1998 Ford Ranger? I only found the 4-prong set-up on your website but maybe I missed it.

I do have a solution to add a 7-Way trailer connector and brake controller to your 1998 Ford Ranger. Since there isn't a plug-in 7-Way available for your truck, one will need to be partially hardwired.

First, if the truck already has a 4-Way flat connector then all you would need is kit # ETBC7 which includes all the parts needed to install the 7-Way and provisions for installing a brake controller.

If the truck does not have any trailer connector then before you can install the ETBC7 you will need to install a 4-Way, # 118325. I have included some links that show and explain the ETBC7 installation for you.

For a brake controller I recommend the P2 # 90885 because it is easy to set up and use and it is reliable.
