1997 Ford Explorer Trailer Hitches

We humans love our toys. They come in various sizes, shapes, colors, smells, and sounds. Most of our standard vehicles cannot haul our toys without a little help.

Do you daily commute your race car, but need room for your tires and tools? There’s a hitch for that! Do you need extra room to carry your bicycles to the trails? There’s a hitch for that! Do you have a stable of horses that need to get to the county fair? There’s a hitch for that! Check out our Trailer Hitch Buying Guide.
Not sure which 1997 Ford Explorer Trailer Hitches are right for you? We have over 5945 customer reviews, with an average rating of 4.5, to help you find exactly what you're looking for. Here's what some of our customers have said:

"What a monumental disaster to install!!!!! The receivers fits very tightly against the frame of my explorer. I needed a jack and two jack stands just to get the receiver in place...Then low and behold only three of the four holes actually aligned with the ones in the frame. Since I am only using the receiver to haul a bicycle carrier I am not currently not to concerned. But eventually will drill out the frame to place the fourth bolt on. So much for a drill less installation. Other than the major installation headache I love the receiver." —Derek S from Paoli, PA bought a CURT Receiver Hitches for a 1997 Ford Explorer.

Longview tow mirrors Explorer

These tow mirrors are perfect for my 02 Explorer! I do have the puddle lights on my Eddoe Bauer and this did fit if you push them in while putting bracket on. For better fitment I took a roto zip and cut out a little underneath for the perfect fitment. Great quality product! View more reviews...
