Towing product supplier CURT Manufacturing has developed OEM compatible fifth-wheel legs made specifically to fit Ford truck beds that contain the towing prep package.
With the development of Ford’s , designed to make fifth-wheel and gooseneck installations easier and smoother,
CURT introduced the 16017 fifth-weel wheel legs to accommodate Ford’s recently developed add-on towing prep package. The legs mount directly into the under-bed mount locations and convert any CURT fifth-wheel hitch head to Ford’s under-bed hitch platforms, including CURT’s Q16, Q20, Q24 and E16 hitch heads.
The most unique feature of CURT’s fith-wheel legs is the variable position anchors that allow the hitch to easily drop into the under-bed mounting points. A quarter-turn anchoring system allows quick and easy installation and removal. The anchors can be adjusted to limit movement and eliminate unwanted chucking noises. CURT estimates installation to take just 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the installer’s level of expertise.
CURT’s OEM compatible fifth-wheel legs for Ford have a gross trailer weight capacity of up to 24,000 lbs. This heavy-duty product is completed with a durable carbide powder coat finish to give it superior rust and scratch resistance.
