Aftermarket Hitch Options for 2010 Ford F150 With Bent OEM Hitch  


My truck has a factory hitch that is not in good shape. It is bent and I really cant use the one that is currently on my truck. I need a replacement for the factory installed hitch. Would this one work or do you have any that would work?

I did some checking, and found that the hitch on your 2010 Ford F-150 is fully integrated into the bumper brackets so you can't just remove the existing OEM hitch and replace it with an aftermarket hitch like the Draw-Tite # 75691 you'd looked at. That's the bad news, but there are options.

• You can go to a salvage yard and find a 2009-2014 F-150 that wasn't equipped with the factory hitch, and get
the bumper and bumper brackets off of it and use those to replace what's existing on your truck. Once that's
done, you can install the # 75691 hitch.

• Your other option would be to leave the existing hitch in place, and install the TorkLift Hero Super Hitch, part #
TLF1005H. The Torklift hitch is specifically designed for trucks with the factory hitch.

The TorkLift hitch is an awesome piece of equipment, but it's pretty pricey. If it were my truck, I'd go with option # 1 if at all possible.
