Looking to have a towing trailer hitch installed on my 2013 f150 4door. I want to make sure it's put into the frame so that I can use a bed extender or preferably trailer. I want to finally get a trailer for easier loading and transporting.

If you are capable of have it correctly installed, I have a little cash or a 16 gauge bolt action. Working condition with clip.

Nathan, bolting a frame hitch on an F150 is pretty simple. You should be able to do it in an hour. Take your spare tire out first, and bolt it in. It really is pretty easy to do. The last one I did literally took 30 minutes and that included removing and reinstalling the spare.

Lots of no-drill hitches out there. I bought one from etrailer.com and paid my mechanic $50 to install it. It's not hard but it's easier with a lift and 4 hands.

Yeah hitches are an easy bolt on pierce with only a few bolts. If you go to Uhaul they will show you how to install it or they might even install it for free if you buy the hitch from them.

Nathan are you located anywhere near north Fort Worth? I would be glad to work with you on it.

Get one from u haul and do it yourself. Believe me, it's easy. I was able to install mine on my ram.....and that says a lot about how simple it is

If you want to bring it to little elm, and really dont want the 16ga, i am happy to do it. But honestly, it should just be a bolt on project.
The uhaul site had instructions, i could not pull them up due to work computer restrictions

I have no interest in a shotgun or cash. Just teaching someone how to do something is reward enough.
