F-150 trailer hitch options
The Class III option comes with heavy duty shocks, a heavy duty battery, a 7-pin harness and a transmission cooler if you get the 5.4L V-8. I wouldn't get the 5.4L engine, so the transmission cooler is a moot point. I can upgrade the battery fairly easily, and the shocks if necessary, which leaves the 7-pin harness as the only real difference. I'm gonna show my ignorance and ask what's the biggest advantage of the 7-pin vs. the 4-pin connection?
Also, does anybody know how difficult it is to add a hitch, and, more specifically, how difficult is it to add the 7-pin connector (or can that even be done - I don't know a whole lot about this)?
I'm not going to be doing much towing, but I know I want a hitch because I want to be able to tow things (like a boat or a moving trailer) when I need to. So far, the truck that I found that I like the most does not have the towing package option, but I'd probably get the truck anyway if I knew I could add the hitch myself without sacrificing any significant towing capability.
Any thoughts or advice will be much appreciated!
