Forgot to mention that integrated hitch/bumpers also fully box the rear frame.True, departure angle would be compromised some. Would be OK with me, though. Just have to wait and see about aftermarket hitches, bumpers.
Zero corrosion on connections when you use Dielectric Grease on every connection, wire crimp, wire splice, wire nut, etc. Available at most auto and homecenter stores.As a dealer technician what people don't realise is in most cases the rear body harness is different and is a pita to install a factory 7/4 pin plug because the wiring just isn't there.(and aftermarket solutions are prone to corrosion issues and no warranty coverage.Now if they would just add in to the tow package an integrated trailer brake controller!
I have been thinking about that. I think I will mount on the center of the bumper or extend the wire and mount it in the hub of the spare. Not sure until I get my hands on the Bronco.Would a swing out work with the backup cam? Would the aftermarket just overlay on that part that sticks out?
Thanks that is I was curious about real life examples. Guys at the local auto store said it could be a couple of years...which I had a hard time believing!It shouldn't take too long to hit market for this. Ford is already making them, they'll be very easy to copy and /or modify for consumer install.
As an example, I have a 2020 Explorer, which is the first year for the 6th generation on a new platform. I was able to purchase a hitch in June 20, and could have picked from more than one manufacturer. Unsure about the wiring harness, didn't need so I wasn't looking for it then-but it is available now.
Keep your eye on eTrailer, they will be one of the first out with the hitches as soon as the manufacturers release them.Thanks that is I was curious about real life examples. Guys at the local auto store said it could be a couple of years...which I had a hard time believing!
Well of course, @Granger Ford already beat me to itwhen the aftermarket gets their hands on one then the production will ramp up...watch etrailer.com they always have excellent videos and information on all things trailer towing and some other accessories...
I just pulled the Bronco on the site for 2021 and tire "chains' is all that is listed but watch there...
Can't imagine it. Some hitches are fairly complex with how they attach to the frame and fit under the truck.Thanks that is I was curious about real life examples. Guys at the local auto store said it could be a couple of years...which I had a hard time believing!
