Check Vehicle Fit

A CURT custom original equipment vehicle-to-trailer connector (sometimes called a T-connector) is a simple, plug-and-play electrical device that eliminates the need for cutting, splicing and soldering when installing vehicle-to-trailer wiring.Most vehicles do not come ready to tow. Unless your vehicle has a towing package, it is probably not equipped with a trailer wiring connector. This is where CURT's OE vehicle-to-trailer connectors come into play. A custom wiring connector uses a single original equipment plug to plug into a special socket provided by your vehicle. Though this option is not available on every vehicle, some automotive manufacturers design their vehicles to be easily equipped for towing by supplying a socket, integrated into the vehicle's electrical system, to readily accept a custom wiring connector. With a CURT custom OE connector, there is no need to tap into the taillight assembly because a special socket is already provided.This custom original equipment vehicle-to-trailer wiring connector provides a 4-way flat connector socket and is designed to be a custom wiring option for certain years of the Ford Explorer 4-door, Ford Explorer Sport 2-door, Ford Ranger pickup, Mercury Mountaineer or Mazda B2300, B3000 or B4000 pickup (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at CURT custom vehicle-to-trailer wiring connectors are designed to be long-lasting and simple to install. They come with dust covers to keep your connector clean when not in use and feature a one-year limited warranty to give you peace of mind.

    Comments about Curt Custom Original Equipment Vehicle-to-Trailer Connector:

    Well packaged, correct fit and plenty of length. The Ford quick disconnect plug made installation extremely easy and fast. Male plug even came with a rubber dust protector. The packaging included several black ties so to secure the wiring to the frame of the truck.
