Hey everyone. Quick question for those in the know. I’ve seen the light and just purchased a new Ford Super Duty replacing my 1/2 ton tow vehicle. I have a Pull-rite 3100. The new truck came with a 5th wheel prep package. Can I just swap the pull-rite into the Ford then take it to be inspected or is it more in depth? Thanks!

Not familiar with the 3100. But the Ford factory prep is a “puck” type system meaning the hitch must have the pins that drop thru and lock into the bed of the truck. Your hitch must have those pins, and the proper spacing to fit the Ford. Or you must buy an adapter.

Call Pull-Rite customer service. Tell them your hitch model/serial number and the exact truck you bought and they will tell you exactly what you need.

I called pullrite, that hitch is designed only for a 1/2 ton. Time for an Anderson!

Demco sells an adapter plate for newer trucks with older hitches

Andersen does not make a hitch to fit your puck system. You need to sell your Pullrite hitch, and purchase a B&W 3300, that will be a perfect fit to your pucks. You have a great NEW TRUCK, get the best hitch for it, that is designed to drop right in.

Thanks for the suggestion. I however do not want a stationary hitch.

If I had the factory pucks I'd probably get an adapter and then drop the rail mount Andersen on top of that. I think the Andersen style works better than a traditional hitch, it's a great value and it's super easy to install and remove.

I have a 2018 F350. The Andersen ultimate hitch fits the Factory Ford puck system nicely.

I called Andersen yesterday and they said no rack is needed as well.
