    The mount you need is a 7159-2. The 7173 mount if for "late" 2004 F series Fords built after April 2004

    EARLY" indicates a build date before 12-01-2003, "LATE" indicates a build date on or after 12-01-2003. How do u get april being cut off?

    Why is that either way I does not affect what plates ur truck requires. 7159 Should be the ones.

    Sorry I was wrong Brad is correct. Again with a build date of 10/03 7159 should be the correct one
