Cequent Performance Products will supply an optional cross-bed towing system on the 2011 Ford Super Duty F-series truck, according to Automotive News.

The towing system, for towing gooseneck and fifth-wheel trailers of up to 25,000 pounds, is produced at the Cequent plant in Goshen, Ind., and then shipped to Magna International Inc.’s plant in Bowling Green, Ohio, for frame assembly and then on to Ford’s truck plant in Louisville, Ky.

Production of the trucks will start in January and the vehicles will be at dealerships by mid-February, a Cequent spokewoman told Automotive News. Cequent, a subsidiary of TriMas Corp. of suburban Detroit, makes cargo management and rack systems, towing and hitch systems and trailer and electrical brake systems.

    It is about time just had ordered my new ford and I am waiting for it to come in. I wish I new which Reese hitch will fit ? I believe it is the signature series and I’m hoping an 18K will fit?

    I have left messages on the Reese website twice and have not received a reply. All I would like to know is what model 24K hitch do I order for my new 2011 Ford F 450?
    Thank you.
