2015 Ford Explorer Transmission Cooler Recommendation

Question:

What can I do to equip my Ford to be capable of towing 4-5000 lbs? I currently have class III hitch. I understand the tow package comes with an upgraded transmission, hitch and heavy duty or additional transmission cooler.

If your 2015 Ford Explorer has any of the V6 engines available it will have a towing capacity of 5,000 lbs. Your Class III hitch like the Draw Tite # 76034 should have capacities that are right at the same capacity.

For a transmission cooler you would want the Derale part # D13503 which would work well in your Explorer.

Thanks for replying so quickly to my earlier question. I forgot to ask about the appropriate trailer brake 7 pin to be installed? Thanks again

Sounds like you don't have a trailer wiring harness at all at the rear of your 2015 Ford Explorer. You will need to start with a 4-way. For that you would want the # C56172.

From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC7. I attached installation instructions and an install video for this product as well.

For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885. This is our best selling brake controller because of how well it works and how easy it is to setup.

If instead you DID already have a 7-way instead of the wiring mentioned you would only need the part # 3035-P.
