Although the Draw-Tite # 40050 is only for 1964 Chevy C/K 8 foot bed 2WD as you stated, there are other options available for your 4x4 truck. I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75034 which is a fit for your truck if you have a standard bumper. If you have a deep drop bumper, then I recommend the # 41504. All of these hitch receivers are compatible with the Gen-Y Iron Grip Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin for 2" Hitch Receivers - 5/8" Diameter, Item # GY39FR. For your trailer wiring, I recommend the Tekonsha 4-Pole Hardwire Kit with Circuit Tester # 18252.

For a ball mount, I recommend the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 5" Drop, 5-1/2" Rise - 10K - Black # BWTS10037B. This will give you an adjustable mount to tow multiple trailers level. It also has two integrated hitch balls to fit a 2 inch coupler or a 2-5/16 inch coupler. This ball mount has a really nice and clean looking stow away option that will protect your shins when not in use.

For your 1964 Chevy C20, there is not a front mount hitch available from any of our manufacturers.

For the 2001 Ford F-350 Crew Cab 4x4 7.3L Diesel, there are a couple of options. If you want to retain your OEM fog light location, you can use the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # C31014 which has a line pull of 9,000 lb and vertical load of 500 lbs along with gross trailer weight rating of 5,000 lbs.

If you don't mind relocating the OEM fog lights, then another option is the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65022. This hitch has a vertical line pull of 9,000 lbs, a vertical load of 500 lbs and a gross trailer weight rating of 5,000 lbs.
