What the?! It doesn’t? Why would they make it look like it’s built just for that purpose? 🤦🏼‍♂️ How does it mount if it’s done from the factory?
Factory comes with something similar to the Hopkins I linked up above. Assuming it clips into that slot. I’m going to remove that plate and install the Road Tough myself.

Here are a couple of pics of where I mounted the module.

Well, I’m freaking psyched on the Road Tough trailer connector. I didn’t even have to use the supplied bracket. It clipped right into the Ford hitch. One slight win for spending the extra cash on it before Curt released theirs. Loving the clean factory look.

Now I just have to paint that bolt matte black (thanks to @flip for the replacement). Even though I used the proper torque - it busted at the same moment my wrench clicked.
