How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2007 Ford F-250

Today, on our 2007 Ford F-250 we're going to review and install, the Curt Class V, 2-1/2 inch Receiver Tube Hitch, part number C15810. Now here's what our hitch is going to look like once it's installed. Our hitch is a super strong, square tube constructed, fully welded, with a matte and black coated finish. This is our big heavy duty hitch, so we've also got large chain hold downs making it easy for those large hooks for the heavy duty trailers. Here we have a 5/8 pinhole that goes all the way through our class V, 2-1/2 inch by 2-1/2 inch receiver tube. This hitch is capable of up to 2,700 pounds of tongue weight and a 20,000-pound tow capacity. Next, we'll go ahead and give you a couple of measurements.

This will assist you in selecting accessories such as a ball mount, bike rack, or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outer most edge of the bumper is 3-1/2 inches. From the top of the receiver tube opening down to the ground is 20 inches. We'll now go ahead and show you the minimum tools required for installing the hitch. We're going to use our 3/4 inch socket, and ratchet, and then our torque wrench.

Now, let's go ahead, show you just how easy it is to install the hitch. Note, if your vehicle is equipped with a spare tire you want to go ahead and lower and remove it to make it easier to install the hitch, while it's not a requirement, it does make it a lot easier. Now, let's go ahead and point out our attachment points. Now, we're going to have a total of 8 attachment points, 4 on each side. These attachment points are pre-drilled holes in the frame by the manufacturer. Now, the hardware for each attachment point is going to be a 9/16 carriage bolt.

We'll engage the carriage bolt and block and then drop it down through the attachment point. Once we have our hitch in place, we'll install a 9/16 flange nut to secure each of the attachment points. Let's go ahead and put all of our carriage bolt and blocks in place. Now keep in mind, each process we do here to one side will get repeat identically on the other side. We're now ready to go ahead and install our hitch. It's a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch while you install your fasteners.

Now once we hold our hitch up to the frame we'll go ahead and install the flange nuts. We'll install each one finger tight until they're all in place. Once we have all our hardware in place we'll going ahead and tighten it down. Now, once all our fasteners are tightened down, we'll go ahead and torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Just like that our hitch is installed and we're ready to hit road. That'll do it for the review and install of our Curt Class V, 2-1/2 inch Receiver Tube Hitch, part number C15810 on our 2007 Ford F-250. .
