Availability of Hitch for 2013 Ford F-150 With Factory Installed Tow Hitch  


I need to replace a 2013 F150 Ford factory installed tow hitch. Do you folks have one that will replace it? I understand that some hitches will not work due to bumper mounting some of the factory hitch.


Expert Reply:

There are two ways to add a hitch to your 2013 Ford F-150 that already has a factory hitch installed. The first is to add the TorkLift # TLF1005H. This is only designed for short bed models and trucks with a factory hitch rated for 10,500 lbs. It also installs along with the factory hitch instead of replacing it.

The second option is to use the Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 75691 you were looking at. However, you can't simply install it by removing the existing factory hitch. You will need to find a 2009-2014 F-150 that did not have the factory hitch at a salvage yard. If you take the bumper and bumper brackets off and use them to replace what is on your truck you will be able to install the Draw-Tite hitch. This is a bit more complicated but will also save you a lot of money.
