^^ Welcome to the Forum. :wave:
Just remember that the max you can tow with an aftermarket hitch is 3000 lb. Not sure if anyone has the wiring diagrams for a 2021 but I'm guess a 2020 might be the same.

I know this is the 2020 explorer thread, but I confirmed the wiring harness is in the same location on my 2021 Platinum (above the lower airbag and below the steering column). I was able to attach the brake control cable with only removing the plastic cover under the steering wheel. I remove four screws to do so- two are easy to spot toward the seat, but there is another one behind the pedals and a fourth to the right of the accelerator going into the center console. The picture attached is only showing the plastic cover I removed; refer to previous photos for the plug itself- it was in the same location described as the 2020 and pointing towards the center console

The break controller fits nicely in the fuse compartment and don’t have to drill any holes in the dash 👍🏻
