Today on our 2003 Ford F250 Super Duty we'll be installing the DeeZee Tail Gate Assist, part number DZ43203. Our first step will be opening the tail gate. Next we'll go ahead and prepare and install the nutsert. Using the nutsert and nutsert tool we'll need to set the depth. There'll be 3/4 of an inch from the face of the washer at the end of the nutsert tool. Now we've got our depth set we'll go ahead and install it into the pre-drilled hole in the tail gate near the hinge.

Today on our 2003 Ford F250 were going to install the Husky Truck Bed Accessory Tailgate part number HL15130. First, well need to go ahead and remove the manufacturers tailgate cables. To do this well remove the torque headed bolt and set the cables and hardware aside. Then we can go ahead and remove the tailgate by hinging the tailgate to a 45 degree angle and pulling up on the passengers side and sliding the drivers side toward the passengers side to remove the tailgate completely. Before we can install the cable onto the new tailgate well first need to remove the old hardware. To do this, well need to remove the hold down washer and spacer.

Today, on our 2006 Ford F-250, we are going to be test fitting the Stromberg-Carlson open fifth wheel tailgate, part number VG-97-100.All right, we have already got our tailgate assembled so now we are ready to mount it up on our truck. First we need to remove the factory tailgate. We will lower the tailgate and we will undo the support cables on either side of the tailgate. We will turn the tailgate to about a 45 degree angle so that we can slide the hinge on the passenger side off. To fit up our Stromberg tailgate, again we will hold it at about a 45 degree angle and we will slip the driver side over the hinge post first. As we close the tailgate, we want to pull open the latches, push the tailgate into position and release the latches so they will hold the tailgate in place.
All right, today on a 2004 Ford F-250 long bed, we are going to install BestRail kit part number 42730. One of the first things to do to prepare the rails is apply some camper tape to the bottom of them which is supplied with the kit. There are three rails we have to do this to. It is really simple. We will apply the tape to this edge here, over this gap, and onto this ridge right here. We will just work our way back all the way down. Repeat the same process on the other two rails. The next step is to slide three of the clamps into each one of the BestRail side rails. Using an 1/ 8 inch Allen wrench, we are going to install four of the 1/4 by 20 by 3/ 8 inch set screws in each of the corner brackets. Next we are going to go ahead and take the front BestRail and place it on the front rail of the truck bed.
