Hitch

Postby swampfoxforeman » Fri Nov 07, 2014 4:50 pm

Will a Ranger hitch work on a Bronco II? If so any there any specific years? I'm wanting to find one at the junk yard if I can. Finial question how hard is it to install one on the Bronco II? There is not much room to between the frame and the gas tank.

Geeze... sry for the delay... but Welcome to the site.

As long as you can find a hitch from an early Ranger--'83-'91 it will be the right width... but you need to drill the holes in the frame and possibly use shims/spacers to lower it. There isnt much room to work but it can be done without dropping the tank.

There are also universal hitches available which are adjustable for differant width options, I picked one up for $90 new and installed it on the back of a travel trailer.

The one on my B2 is originally from a full size Bronco, I narrowed it years ago and put it on a '94 Ranger, then later swapped it over to my B2.
