Ford factory trailer hitch install

Ford part # M1PZ19D520B

Easy install definitely recommend using a lift it will make the job easier.

Yakima medium cargo basket rack

Also I relatively simple installation.

Did you have to cut the rear bumper to install?

How long did it take you to get the hitch? I tried ordering the OEM hitch in February, but my dealer said it was backordered for 6-12 months, so I wound up going with Curt instead.

12 hour turn time from order to pickup. Your local Ford dealer should be able to order factory accessories from SWFAD and have them next day.

Thanks, I've had my Curt hitch installed for a while now but I was just curious. Good to know they're readily available for people now.

The delay for hitches was the sway control chips, not the hitch itself on the big Bronco side so I assume the same here.

Your Bronco looks great with the white and black letters on the back. Not a fan of the white letters on white vehicle.

That’s not true for the Sport. My Big Bend with no factory tow package came with sway control enabled, and other users here without the tow package have confirmed the same thing. See the stickied posts in the Towing/Trailers section.

The delay was for availability of the hitches themselves, I was unable to order the part number OP listed. Even with my Curt hitch I had to wait 3 months on backorder.

The delay was most likely with manufacturing or materials supply. Even with my Curt hitch I had to wait 3 months on backorder.
Ok, my bad. I’ve been on the Big Bronco site for a long time since I reserved one over a year ago. I just recently ordered a Badlands Sport since my 2 door Badlands is probably 2 years out. The issue there was the sway control so I assumed the same here. Thanks for the clarification.

Looking good! How is the wind noise from the rack? I was surprised how loud ours is. Also vibrates the rear view mirror.

We drove from the Texas hill country to Santa Fe NM yesterday and I didn’t notice any wind noise really.
