Review of Curt Accessories and Parts C16017


Today we're going to take a look at the Curt OEM fifth wheel hitch legs for the Ford Super Duty towing prep package. These have a 24,000 pound towing weight capacity. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2011 and newer Ford Super Duty trucks with the factory-installed towing prep package. Now, on any custom fit part, I always like to recommend to go to our website, using our Fit Guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it will show if these will work for your application. Now, these legs, these are the fifth wheel base, which is specifically designed to attach to the receivers in your Ford factory fifth wheel towing prep package. These legs are designed to work with the Curt A-16, A-20, E-16, Q-16, Q-20, and Q-24 hitch heads, which we do sell separately on our website. Basically, the hitch head would bolt right in to here, the legs on the side is what would drop into the truck bed of your vehicle. Now, they do use a quarter-turn anchoring system for quick installation and removal.

I just want to rotate this to show you how that works. If you notice, there are two handles right here. So, we're going to pop open the pin and clip, we'll take that out. That will unlock it. You can see these handles will rotate out a quarter of a turn and, when you do that, it rotates these tabs, which then will allow these legs to drop into the pucks that are in your Ford factory package towing package.

You'll do that on each corner. Once they drop in there, then you just rotate those handles back and you'll notice that will rotate the tabs. That will lock them into those pucks on your factory unit. Then just take your pin, run it right through the holes in the handles. Go ahead and clip it and that will keep the handles from opening and then you're all attached, ready to go. To remove it, it's the same way. Just pop the clip and open it up. These anchors right here, you'll notice the nuts right here, these can be adjusted to eliminate any chucking between the legs and the under bed rails.

These parts are protected by a highly durable carbide black powder coat finish and they are co-cured in a rust-resistant liquid Bonderite coating. Again, the gross towing weight capacity on these legs is 24,000 pounds. One last note. You do never want to exceed the rated towing capacity of your vehicle. But that should do it for the review on the Curt OEM fifth wheel hitch legs for the Ford Super Duty towing prep package with a 24,000 pound weight capacity.
