Does anyone know of a company that makes one for the 98's i see Curt manufacturing makes one for a 99 - 01. Whats the difference in the 98 and 99 I thought they were the same body styles. Thanks in advance for any info.
I have one off my 2000 Mountaineer. I had it custom-made from a rear hitch. I ordered a front hitch from Draw-Tite
many years ago, but found out that their front hitch (which was listed to fit BOTH Explorer AND Mountaineer) did NOT
fit a Mountaineer - the hitch receiver did not come out in the right place.
I designed brackets for this one, and had a professional welding shop fabricate and weld them to it.
If you get close to White Lake (Waterford area), you're welcome top stop by and see if this one would work for you.
Right now, I'm working on fabbing a front hitch up for my Lincoln Aviator - which nobody offers. I'm modifying one
for a 2005 Explorer/Mountaineer to make it work.
