Compatibility of Blue Ox BX4370 Ascent Tow Bar with 2015 Ford F150


Will the Blue Ox Ascent towbar work with my 2015 Ford F150?


Expert Reply:

From what I've found, the 2015 Ford F150 will weigh between 4000 and 5000 lbs, depending on cab configuration and bed length. Since the # BX4370 Blue Ox Ascent tow bar is rated up to 7500 lbs, it'll work just great for you.

You'll need a few other items to complete your flat towing system if you haven't chosen them already. You'll need base plates, a wiring solution, a supplemental braking system and possibly a high/low adapter.

For base plates, I'd recommend the Blue Ox # BO74FR. For wiring the truck to the motorhome, use # RM-15267. For a supplemental braking system, I'd recommend the Blue Ox Patriot braking system # BLU37TR. The Patriot is simple to install and remove and can be swapped back and forth between vehicles if you should switch out your flat towed vehicle in the future. If the installed height difference of the base plate is greater than 3 inches higher or lower than the height of the receiver on the motorhome, you'll also need a high/low adapter to level the tow bar. I've linked to our selection of high/low adapters.

I've also linked to installation videos for some of the parts I recommended above.
