Wiring for trailer lights
There is usually a Kit in a plastic package that comes with the truck. You may find the kit in the Jack sleeve under the Passengers front or rear seat. This Kit can have additional Flashers that go under the hood in a relay box, and a wiring "Stub" for Electric brake controls. They fit multiple applications.
My 1999 had a connector under the dash for Electric brakes if you are going to use them. You can check for a wiring loom under the rear frame of the truck, most come prewired. If you are going to need to add the actual plug-in, the newer Ford products have a dual fixture plug which can take anything.
Tractor Supply is good for aftermarket trailer accessories and if you want Factory parts and need wiring too there are bigger kits at the Dealer. The correct gauge wire is important.
Ideally, you could find a truck in a Salvage Yard, wrecked in the front or bad engine, with the bed missing. Then it would be easy pickings to strip the frame. Really would not matter if it was a Crew cab as you can bundle the slack.
Look under your truck for extra wiring, you may just need the Plug.
