Going to post to my own reply, and who knows keep it going as I do the work. Just installed the Blue Ox Base Plate on my 1 week old 2016 F150 and it was a BREEZE!
1. The Blue Ox installation instructions were very similar to my make and model. I do not need to post instructions because they exist at blue ox.
2. Everything fit WELL. REALLY well.
3. Called Blue OX customer support and spoke to "Kevin" and was more then happy to walk me through some issues. ( Issue were torque specs on original equipment install version of instructions ). But wow, 2 of 3 times had someone on phone within 3 minutes. GREAT GREAT SUPPORT!
The Cons (Not Blue Ox Fault)
1. 17/32 drill bit is hard to find which is required for this installation (Lowes, HD, True Value do not carry it ). You can go bigger and smaller. I followed the directions and luckily found a hole in the wall store that carried this bit. So managed to get it installed. If you install this, *ORDER THE BIT FOR YOUR DRILL AT THE SAME TIME, IT IS HARD TO FIND. *If you are like me, the installation said 17/32 so that is what I am going to do, but if you like to fudge the numbers....
My Time To Install:
1. 6 hours! Long time
2.5 hours looking for the bit!
2. 2 hours in all slowly moving on my brand new truck afraid to damage anything.
3. If I did this again, it would take me 1 hour no problem.
4. 30 minutes drinking a beer to victory.
If you have the drill bit and your car is older (because your not as concerned of damaging something), this is a 1.5-2 hour job ( a pro can do this in 45 minutes) . It was as the directions said, 1. disconnect fog lights, remove bumper fascia, unscrew bolts from front of bumper (behind facia you remove), unscrew 2x bolts from back of bumper. And off came the bumper. You really need 2 people, not because of weight (bumper I think is 20 pounds I was surprised how light is was), but just for lining things up.
So. Tommorrow I bring the rv home. And work on the RV2 brake and Safety Plus. Connect it all up and go for a drive. Will Update.
There is little info out there on the 2016 F150, I am putting this up for anyone else looking (googling f150 remove bumper) to do the same thing I am.
Go to blueox.com and find the tow bars section of the site. Once there, put your make and model in and you can get the directions on removing the bumper.
