Can Trailer Hitch Be Installed on a 2011 Ford F-150 Raptor Without Relocating Full Sized Spare
Need a trailer hitch to fit my 2011 ford raptor. I do NOT want to relocate my full size spare. Do you have any thing that fits my requirements?

All of the trailer hitch options made for your 2011 Ford F-150 Raptor will require you to relocate the full sized spare tire, which means you have a few options available to you:
- Purchase a custom made hitch and relocate the spare tire (I recommend the Draw-Tite # 75691 since it has a hidden crosstube)
- Have a hitch fabricated to fit with the full sized spare (I'm not sure if this is possible or not)
- Find another way to transport whatever it is you're needing the hitch for
The easiest solution is to install a custom hitch and relocate the spare tire but I know that will take up bed space or require you to add a roof rack or ladder rack and carrying system if you want/need to keep your truck bed clean and free to use. If you end up going with the custom hitch setup and you'd like some options for securing your spare tire elsewhere just let me know and I'd be more than happy to help out!
