  • Compatibility of RockyMounts # RKY011 Trunk Bed Bike Rack with Tonneau Cover on 2015 Toyota Tacoma
  • I'd recommend you go with the Swagman # S64702 Pickup Truck Bed Mounted Bike Rack. Swagman confirms it as being a fit for your truck. The # RKY011 RockyMounts Clutch is certainly a slick option, but since the cargo slot is right at the top of the rail, I believe the tonneau cover would interfere with the RockyMounts Clutch once it's installed. The cover would be about 4 inches in diameter once rolled up, which would recess the fork mount far enough underneath that it wouldn't work. If...

  • Will MaxxTow Aluminum Cargo Carrier with Ramp # 70275 Fit Hitch on 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • All of the trailer hitches we offer for the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee are the 2-inch Class III type and all can be seen on the link provided for you.

  • Flat-Towing 1979 Jeep Wrangler CJ-5
  • In order to be able to tow your 1979 Jeep CJ-5, you will need to install base plates which the tow bar will attach to. We do not carry any specific base plates for your Jeep but we may have an option. I recommend the Blue Ox Universal base plates, part # BX88230. These do not attach to the Jeep frame. They actually attach to the Jeep bumper. They are designed to be bolted to a flat surface on the bumper, so the bumper may need to be modified and reinforced to be able to handle towing....

  • Use of 5th Wheel Trailer to Gooseneck Hitch Adapter on 37-Ft Montana Trailer with Mor-Ryde Pin Box
  • There are a range of adapter types that allow a 5th wheel trailer to be towed by the vehicle that has a gooseneck hitch. These include the type that bolt over the king pin, such as the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter # CAB-C5G that you referenced. Another version of this adapter with 7-1/2-inches of offset (for more clearance) is also offered as part # CAB-C5GX1216. These will work so long as your pin box is not an air-ride type. For reference I have linked for...

  • How to Identify Pin Box Brand and Part Number for Selecting a Replacement Reese Goose Box
  • 5th wheel pin boxes usually have a sticker on their left side to indicate the manufacturer name and part number. For example, among the most common pin boxes in use today is a Lippert 1621. A Reese Goose Box is the best method for adapting a 5th wheel trailer to a tow vehicle that is equipped with a gooseneck hitch. Although there are other types of products to do this, only a Reese Goose Box avoids the additional stress on the trailer's frame that is introduced by all other types. Other...

  • Need Higher Capacity Blue-Ox Bolt-On Base Plate Bracket Kit for 2000 Jeep Wrangler
  • The Blue Ox Bolt-On Base Plate Bracket Kit, # BX88230, will require that you drill into your bumper and the bumper will most likely need to be reinforced or modified. I spoke with my technical contact at Bestop regarding the HighRock 4x4 High Access Front Bumper, # B4291701, and any modifications, including drilling, will void the warranty for the bumper. Due to the fact that the Bestop bumper has not been tested for flat towing, they can not recommend that you use it for this purpose. The...

This part's correct orientation is shown in the installation instructions that I've linked for you. (This may sound silly but its worth checking.)You can also check that the channel was installed level rather than pointing upward at all. In step 8, which is shown on page 5 of the instructions, you'll note that Bestop advises to slide...

  • Weight Distribution/Sway Control Recommendation for 2006 Chevy Van Towing 26-Foot Airstream
  • What a cool trailer! There is nothing like a vintage Airstream. Even if you are not experiencing major weight distribution issues with your 2006 Chevrolet Express van, such as headlights pointing up rather than straight ahead when the trailer is hitched, adding a system can still enhance your overall trailer handling by pushing more trailer tongue weight forward onto the van's front axle. This will give you better steering and braking performance. Plus, if you use a system that includes...

Failure to properly support these loads will void your hitch warranty from Curt. In order to mount a bike rack designed for use with a 2 inch hitch in the Class I hitch, you could use a hitch adapter like the...

  • Prodigy P2 Brake Controller Blue Dot Lit Up on Screen

When the your 1997 Ford F-150 is turned off and trailer isn't connected, it will stay in power saving mode for 15 minutes before the blue dot disappears. Regarding the clicking sound, I would disconnect your brake controller and depress the brake pedal. If the clicking stops or continues let me know and we can troubleshoot from there. I included a couple helpful articles and installation video for you too.

  • Replacement Door Handle and Latch for an Enclosed Cargo Trailer
  • The handle and latch we currently offer is the Universal cam-door lock # 383200 for enclosed trailers. The handles measures 13-3/4 inches long so it may be a little long for your trailer. If you don't have a pipe, you will need a 3/4-inch inner diameter one. If you need to hold your trailer doors open, you can use the Redline enclosed trailer part # DH100. It will create a gap between the door and trailer of 2-5/8 inches. I included a video review for you as well.

  • The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118265 comes with everything needed to install a 7-Way on a 2015 Honda Pilot, but it does not come with any brake controller ports. To install an aftermarket brake controller in your vehicle it will have to have the port already or have one from a Honda dealer installed. The correct harness to use once you have the port would be part # 3070-P. For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885. This is our best...

The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it...

The CFM is how much air is being moved through your radiator in one minute. The typical CFM requirement for a 4 cylinder engine is 1,200 to 1,600. If your 1995 Ford Ranger is used for towing you will want additional airflow. It is always recommended to go with the highest rated fan. I am including a link to a FAQ...

  • Does a Snowboard have to be Centered on the Thule Flat Top Ski and Snowboard Carrier
  • The crossbar spread (center to center distance between the bars) is going to be different on every vehicle. Those with a short bar spread will have the issue that you have. In those cases it is acceptable to have the board sticking out more towards the front or rear. Taking the bindings off is also an option. I do recommend, if at all possible, to have the bindings facing down towards the roof to decrease wind noise and drag.

  • The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4-Bike Platform Rack # HR1400 that you referenced is designed to fit 2 inch hitches.

There are 4 bike racks that can fit 1-1/4 Class II hitches like its sounds like you have. Check out the Thule Vertex bike rack part # TH9029. This rack will fit your hitch and has...

  • Bully Tailgate Lock Compared to MasterLock Tailgate Lock
  • Both the Master Lock TailgateLock # 8253DAT and the Bully Tailgate Lock # LH-090 would work well on your C1500 truck. Personally I like the way the # 8253DAT releases a little better and the fact that it would seem much harder to cut through if a thief was so inclined, plus it has a higher rating with our customers so I would recommend it for you. I attached review videos for both products for you to check out.

  • Will the Hopkins Collapsible Vehicle Cargo Organizer # HM4113 fit a 2011 Ford Escape
  • The Hopkins Collapsible Vehicle Cargo Organizer # HM4113 is a multi-vehicle fit item, so I don't have any fit information for specific vehicles. However, you can see the dimensions of the organizer in the photo I've edited for you. Simply take a tape measure, and measure to see if you have the proper amount of space in your cargo area. If your cargo area is at least 37 inches wide, and 16-3/4 inches front-to-back, the carrier should work great for you.

  • Thule Vertex Bike Rack Recommendation for Use with Curt Class I Hitch
  • Class I hitches are limited to only carrying 2 bikes like you said, the Thule Vertex bike rack part # TH9029 is compatible with a Class I hitch but you can only safely carry 2 bikes. Carrying a third bike, even in a pinch, has the potential to damage the hitch or frame of the vehicle due to the increased leverage. This would be a great rack though. It has the flexibility of being able to be used on a 2 inch hitch where you could carry up to 4 bikes plus it has a ton of great features...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a Travel Trailer with 400 lbs Tongue Weight
  • The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached an FAQ on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. Typically tongue weight is 10-15 percent...

  • Is Drilling Required to Install Husky Round Bar Weight Distribution System
  • Most chain hanging weight distribution systems use a set screw to hold the chain hanging brackets in place and drilling is not required. This is the case with the Husky round bar systems as well. You will not have to drill. You will tighten the back hex bolt (set screw) by hand until you cannot turn it anymore. Then using a wrench give it another 1/4 turn.

  • Will Reese Quick-Install Custom 5th Wheel Brackets Fit 4 and 10 Bolt Rails in a 2015 Ram 2500
  • The rails used in the universal installation kit # RP30035 are the same as the ones used in Quick-Install kit # RP50054-58. The 4-bolt rails, # RP30124, would also work. The instructions for kit # RP50054-58, linked for reference, show installation using both types of rails. The installer must not have looked far enough into the instructions to see it. If using the 4-bolt rails then the hardware kit needed is # RP58406.

You can use a weight distribution system on a vehicle that has auto-leveling suspension.

  • Yakima Roof Rack for a 2011 Mini Cooper S Hatchback

I have linked a video showing installation of a Yakima rack on a 2004 Mini Cooper. It will be basically the same on your 2011. It essentially uses the rain gutters but is still a clamp type of system. If the round bars you have are 48...

  • How to Pick Out a Replacement Rim for a Horse Trailer

Now to determine if this rim will fit what you have on your trailer you will need to make sure that your trailer tire size is designed to fit a 16 inch rim. You will need to find the size of the tire stamped on the sidewall. If the size ends in 16 then you...

  • Hub Recommendation for Use with Timbren Axle Less System part # ASR3500S06
  • The bolt pattern of 6 on 4-1/2 inch isn't a standard trailer bolt pattern so none of the hubs we offer will have it. You might want to double check the bolt pattern to see if maybe you have something different. I attached an FAQ article on determining bolt patterns for you to check out as well. If you have a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern the hub part # 84655UC1 would work great as it would fit the Timbren Axle Less System part # ASR3500S06 is compatible with it.

  • Will Air Suspension Work For 2012 Ford F-250 With Lift Kit When Towing Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • To safely tow your trailer I recommend you do not install the lift kit on your 2012 Ford F-250. Trucks with a lift kit tend to pose a very tough challenge for towing. We do not offer any sort of adapter/kit to raise the height of the 5th wheel hitch in your truck bed. An air suspension kit would not be the answer to leveling your fifth wheel with a lifted truck. Options would be to raise the hitch head to its highest position and if it still does not allow your trailer to clear the...

  • Choosing Firestone or Timbren Suspension System for Towing 3-Horse Trailer
  • Given the choice between the Timbren system ( # TFRTT1502D for 2wd or # TFR150D for 4wd models) or the Firestone # F8606, I'd choose the Timbrens because although the springs won't have any effect on the vehicle ride when there isn't load being applied, they'll get progressively stiffer as more weight is added. The Timbrens have a 6K capacity, but you'll be limited by the payload capacity of your truck. The Firestone springs don't carry a weight capacity, per my contact at Firestone. Since...
