wheel covers,steps and a hitch

I have had a Ford Cube Van of various years since the early 80's.
Just recently I purchased a 1995, 17ft. cube with a powerstroke, (my first diesel, love it) The box has the flat floor which raises the box up a long ways from the ground.

I would like to know if anyone here has installed a trailer hitch, with a reasonable tongue height and how did they manage to do it.

I would also like to install some steps on this van, is there a company that makes a step that attaches at the frame, a double step would be better. I tried running boards before and did not like them.

Now for my final request. What have you guys found to be the best looking wheel simulators? I have purchased a set of Pacific Duallies, but I am not real happy with the way they are attached on the wheel, and they look big and bulky.

Any help is appreciated,
Thanks Dave

on the hitch part, do you have the step bumper or the non step bumper?

uhaul or other brands have a good hitch that you can mount. its not that hard.

we had one on our 98 e350 15pass

Jarrod, My van has a step bumper but it has the flat floor, in other words there are no wheel wells inside the box, which raises the box up about 10 to 12 inches higher than your regular e350 van. I would like to use the frame rails to attach a bumper hitch and not just the bumper itself, thus the hard part in getting the tongue of the trailer not to be too high.

Remember this is a box van, not a passenger van, big difference in the ride height.
