They were very professional. Installation date October 22 and we pick up our 5.0TA in the new year. We are only a few hours away from ETI which made our ordering of the 5.0TA and the Andersen hitch very easy as we were able to visit both companies the same day. I’ll take some pictures after the hitch is installed.
Curious if you have the 5' bed or the longer Supercab bed?
Do you have any photos of how it all goes together?
Any issues with the height of the Ranger's sidewalls since they are so much higher than in the past?

My F150 has 6.5’ bed and have no issues towing my 5.0TA. The hitch is installed in the conventional location and I can get the trailer 90 degrees to the cab without hitting. My Fold-a-Cover with tool box option works great too. If you don’t already have a truck, why would you not buy the one best suited to do the job? No question that would be 6.5’ bed.

We have the Supercab 6’2” box. No problems with towing the 5.0. Been out a few times with it now
