  • Front Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500
  • The recommended front hitch for your 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 is the Curt Hitch # C31017. It has never been tested with the Banks Super Scoop so it would be hard for me to say for certain. The best option I could recommend for you would be to check out the installation instructions I attached to the right and compare them to how the Super Scoop installs to see if they would be compatible.

  • Recommendation for Finding Brake Light Circuit for Installing Brake Controller in 1998 Chevy Truck
  • That would be a great idea. The CHMSL or center high mount signal lamp circuit would be a great way to get the brake light circuit to install your brake controller like the part # 90885 as it only carries the brake light's signal without any turn signals. You may be able to find the circuit near the fuse box or at the third brake light. I attached an FAQ on wiring up a brake controller from scratch for you to check out as well as a video that shows a 1997 Chevy truck brake controller install.

  • BOLT Toyota Key Coupler Lock Recommendation for an Atwood Couple # AT80072
  • I have a solution for you, but the BOLT Covered Padlock # BL7023539 that you referenced would have a long enough straight portion to fit through the coupler lock portion of the # AT80072 that you referenced. Instead, you would want the BOLT Trailer Coupler Lock # BL7025289 as it would be long enough and would also let you use your Toyota key to lock and unlock it.

  • Troubleshooting P2 Brake Controller that Showed PL Code and then Two Dots
  • The PL code will be displayed when the Prodigy loses voltage on the black wire while either the brake pedal or the manual lever is being applied. This may be caused by a loose connection or I have also seen a faulty circuit breaker case this as well. In your case your battery could still be kind of weak and when the brakes are applied the controller sensed the voltage drop and showed this error code. I spoke with my contact at Tekonsha and he stated that when the 2 blue dots occur...

  • Are Supplemental Transmission Coolers Recommended for a 2007 Nissan Pathfinder
  • It is very possible that the previous owner of your 2007 Nissan Pathfinder installed a supplemental transmission cooler on your vehicle as this is a very popular upgrade to prolong the life of the transmission. The factory one is integrated with the radiator so having a second external one would indicate that one was installed. Some argue that you can't cool transmission fluid too much so having a second one wouldn't be pointless. Especially since your factory one is currently bypassed...

  • Can the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller be Installed Near a Cell Phone
  • Since the light up lettering of your Prodigy brake controller is red that would indicate that it is the original Prodigy part # 90185. The P2 # 90885 has blue lettering and can be mounted 360 degrees. There would be no reason you couldn't install either a Prodigy or P2 next to a cell phone.

  • How to Remove Side Pin Windshield Wipers
  • For the removal of side pin style windshield wipers you will need to push the tab up from underneath the blade or lift the tab from the top with a screwdriver. Once the tab unlocks the pin, pull the blade assembly sideways, away from the arm. To reinstall the new blade you will reverse the process. You may need to wiggle the old blade a little bit while trying to get it to slide of the arm if it is being stubborn.

The # 33041 is designed to fit 2002 - 2003 Isuzu Axiom,1998 - 2002 Honda Passport with Under Vehicle Spare, and 1998 - 2004 Isuzu Rodeo with Under Vehicle Spare.

  • To construct a 25 foot long cable with a 6-way trailer plug on it, you'd want to purchase the Deka Jacketed 6-Wire Cable, part # DW04906-1. The wire is sold by the foot. You'd wire the cable onto the Hopkins Endurance # HM48440 6-way trailer end plug. Bargman doesn't offer a 6-way molded connector with a 25 foot length. You can see current pricing on the items I recommended by using the provided links.

  • Base Plates and Other Recommended Equipment to Flat Tow 1991 Ford F150 4WD
  • The Roadmaster Falcon has a 6000 lb capacity, so as long as the as-towed weight of your truck is under that, the tow bar should work fine. The base plates you need that would permanently install on the truck will depend on how he truck is equipped. For the F150 4WD, use the # 414-1 base plate kit, which is a fit as long as the vehicle doesn't use front leaf springs. You'll also need a few other items to complete your towing system. For safety cables, I'd recommend part # RM-645. So...

  • Is the Pin of Tow Ready Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # TR63253 Intended to be Loose When Locked
  • I went to our warehouse and inspected several pieces of the hitch lock you referenced, Tow Ready Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # TR63253. It is normal for there to be some slight play - I'll call it wobble - even when the pin is locked. This is a result of the nature of the lock mechanism.

  • Tire Chains Suitable for Use on 2013 Ford Flex and 2014 Mazda 6
  • Your first step when considering tire chains on any vehicle is a check of the owner's manual for any guidance or restrictions regarding their use. Many passenger cars are limited to using special low-profile S-Class chains that do not require too much wheel well clearance. Before purchasing any tire chain check your two vehicles' manuals carefully and if in doubt speak to your local dealerships. Tire chains come in a variety of types and with varying features.

So yes, you can use it on your truck. The amount of additional oil depends on how much hose you use to install the cooler. You will want to check the oil level after installation to determine how much more oil is needed. Because the amount of hose used varies there isn't a set amount of extra oil you...

  • Installation Procedure for Curt Class I Hitch # C13144 on 2015 Subaru Forester
  • According to the installation instructions, which I've linked for you, the head shields are removed and left off. With the hitch in place, the mounting flanges of the hitch will act as the heat shields and will prevent the heat from the exhaust from being conducted to the interior of the vehicle. Please be aware that if the hitch is used for non trailer loads like a cargo carrier or a bike rack, a stabilizing strap like part # 18050 must be used to comply with Curt's hitch warranty...

According to the owner's manual, if you are planning on towing with your Odyssey you must install a transmission cooler and a power steering cooler. Also, several other numbers are listed in the owner's manual concerning towing. If you have 2 people in the vehicle then the maximum trailer weight you can tow is 3,500 lbs. For each additional person listed subtract 150 lbs of capacity. If your trailer weighs over 1,850 lbs then you...

Any other 12 volt source is not sufficient. Make sure the fuse is intact and fully inserted into the holder. If you have done this and followed all of the other instructions and there is still no power or signals coming through then there could be a problem inside the converter and it will...

  • Does a Mounting Tab have to Be Welded to the Curt Weight Distribution Head to Use Sway Control
  • The head on the Curt weight distribution system # C17323 does have ears on both sides for the friction sway bar ball. They are part of the head assembly: all one piece. There is a rectangular piece of metal that comes with this kit and the friction sway bar that you would use to weld onto a ball mount if towing the trailer using a vehicle that cannot use weight distribution. So if you are using the whole system you would not weld that tab to anything. But if needed you could weld...

I have linked a video review of this rack for you. The Charger in the video does not have a spoiler but you can see how the rack would reach up and over the spoiler if it were present.

This kit will install using existing holes in the truck frame, so drilling into the frame won't be necessary. With a 6 foot bed, you'll need to use a sliding hitch. The slider will allow you to move the hitch rearward by several inches to provide more clearance between the front of the trailer loft and the rear of the cab during low-speed maneuvering.

These will only have the port to plug in a brake controller if the vehicle came with a factory 4- or 7-Way trailer connector. It should be located behind the center console on the passenger side of the vehicle and you would use harness # 3034-P.

The factory transmission cooler is often adequate at best for non-towing situations, so a supplemental cooler would greatly help extend the life of your transmission. Transmission coolers are not vehicle specific, you will need to measure the area in front of your radiator to determine what size cooler will fit and pick the one with those dimensions. If you can fit it, I would recommend...

  • Looking for Cargo Mat to Cover the 2nd Row Captain Seats in 2014 Toyota Highlander
  • In order to cover the 2nd row captain's seats in your 2014 Toyota Highlander, I recommend taking a look at the Semi-Custom All Weather Rubber Cargo Mat, # 4501200. This mat measures 54-1/2' by 49-1/4" and would cover the 2nd row seats as well as overlap the cargo mat that came with your Highlander to avoid anything falling between the seats. Simply trim the mat to fit your needs and you're ready to go. We do not offer a mat that provides continuous coverage from the back of the front...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2007 Ford Focus ZX5
  • The SVT models of the 2003 Ford Focus ZX5 will have a different fascia design called a street appearance package. There should be SVT badged on the back somewhere and possibly right on top of the motor. It is also possible that you will see a P30 in the VIN number in positions 5,6, and 7. The definitive way to know for sure is to have a Ford dealer run the VIN through their computer system. If you do not have an SVT model then you can use trailer hitch # 24692. I have linked a video...

  • Will Thule Replacement Shank Adapter Work with Thule 925 Docking Station
  • I spoke with my contact at Thule, and he said that because the Thule 925 Docking Station was discontinued in 1999, it has not been tested with the Thule Replacement Shank Adapter, # 853-7292, so he was not able to give me a definite yes or no. Another option that should work for you is an adapter like # HTAD. This unit converts any 1-1/4" (Class I and II) receiver to a 2" receiver. Note that using an adapter such as HTAD will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by...

Currently nothing in a 7000-lb equivalent axle capacity is available.

  • Will a Husky Liners 5th Wheel Tailgate and BAKFlip F1 Tonneau Cover Fit Together on 2015 Ford F-350
  • You could use the Husky 5th wheel tailgate # HL15130 on your 2015 Ford F-350 with the BAKFlip F1 tonneau cover # BAK72310 for a short bed or # BAK72311 for a long bed. The F1 tonneau cover rests on top of the tailgate and since the Husky 5th wheel tailgate has the same height measurements as the stock tailgate, it would not prevent you from using the F1 tonneau cover. You would still be able to lock that tailgate. But since the 5th wheel tailgate as that dip in the middle someone could...

  • Attaching Footplates For Rhino-Rack Roof Rack To 2011 Mazda CX-9 With Fixed Mounting Holes

  • Can a Backup Camera Be Wired in a Car Stereo with Display Screen
  • It is unlikely that you would be able to use the car stereo screen with a wireless backup camera like the Peak camera # PKC0RB. The stereo would have to have a receiver on the right frequency for the transmitter to accept the signal and show the image. You might be able to use a hardwire back up camera though such as # HM50002 if your stereo has the appropriate input jack. If the wiring on the camera system has to be modified it is still possible but it would void the camera system warranty.

If you were to mount the light in that corner, so that it doesn't face straight back or straight to the side, it would be at a 45 degree angle in the corner.

  • Too Much Play in Hub and Drum Assembly on Henshen Axles

If there is excessive play then something is not tight enough or it is possible that the hub is not the correct fit for the spindle or the bearings may not be correct for the hub or spindle. There is likely a correct torque rating for a bolt-on hub that you would need to determine from the manufacturer. The 4-bolts in the back though sound like the ones that hold on the brake assembly.
