Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2001 Ford F-150 SuperCrew That Works W/ Factory Spare Tire

Expert Reply:

For your 2001 Ford F-150 SuperCrew I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75065 which will work perfectly with a factory spare tire. The # 75065 has a 500lb tongue weight rating, and 5000lb trailer weight rating that gets bumped up to 800lbs tongue weight and 8000lb trailer weight when using a weight distribution system. Keep in mind that this may be greater than the towing capacity of your truck so you will need to check your vehicles owner's manual to find the towing capacity, and use the lower rating between the hitch and vehicle.

To complete your towing setup you will need a vehicle wiring harness # 118344 if your truck does not have a factory trailer connector, and a ball mount, hitch ball, and hitch pin and clip which is all found in the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900.

I included videos for each of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
