There is a direct-fit plug and play option, but it would involve purchasing two different connectors and using a few parts from each kit.

You would first need the 7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket, part # HM40975. You would also need the Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring Harness, part # 118243. You would attach the HM40975 to the bumper, and use the pigtail from the 118243 to connect the HM40976 to the connector you located under the vehicle. The fuses and relays included with the 118243 might be needed to activate the towing circuits on your F250. You would not use the trailer connector included with the 118243.

Unfortunately these parts are not available separately, but this is your best option for a 4-pole and a 7-way that would require no splicing.

If you do not mind using an adapter, you can simply install the 118243 and use an adapter like part # PK12716 when you need to tow a trailer equipped with a 4-pole connector. This would certainly be a more economical option for you.
