Today on our 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 with 4 inch lift kit we're going to do a review and install of the Andersen Hitches EZ Heavy Duty Adjustable Hitch with Combo Ball part number AM3298. Here we have our nice heavy duty solid portion of the shank with the black powder coating. This is a 2 inch by 2 inch shank. It will fit your standard class 3 and 4 inch hitches that have a 2 inch by 2 inch opening or in this case where you have a 2 1/2 by 2 1/2 inch opening and inside is a sleeve. It will also work with these applications. We'll simply slide the shank into the sleeve then aligning the shank and sleeve up with the hitch pre drilled hole so that we can reinstall our pin and clip. Here we have our combination ball.
Today on this 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Double Cab, we're going to show you the Husky Liners X-act Contour Custom Auto Floor Liner for the 2nd row, part number HL53221. We got it installed in our truck here, which there's not much to it. Basically, you just lay it in place. However, you do want to make sure that you have any original floor mats or liners completely out of the way, because this is designed to work with the carpet itself. If we take a quick look under here, you can see the points on here called nibs, they actually grip the carpet to keep it in place and so it won't move around. Back to the topside, first off you can see a ridge along the edge here. You can see how it also overlaps the threshold between the carpeting and the plastic threshold. Anything that's wet in here and drains will stay in the liner and not get into your carpet. Of course, you've also got these ridges in here so anything that's on your shoes that's dripping off will go into your ridges here, and your shoes will dry off a little bit. This raised edge is at an angle going up towards the front.
Today on our 2005 Chevrolet Silverado, we're going to show you Dee Zee Nerf Bars, part number DZ371523. We've got them installed on our passenger side of our truck, so let's go ahead and cover some of the features. First off, this is a polished stainless steel finish. The diameter of the tube is going to be about three inches. You can see it has a 90 degree turn, and this is inaudible 00:00:23 bent, which means that the tube has a smooth bend all the way around. No kinks or anything like that. The step plates here are constructed from the heavy duty plastic, one half for our extended cab here and of course, the other one for the front of our cab.
Today on our 2012 Chevrolet Silverado, we're going to be doing an installation of the Husky Liners Premium 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate with the Locking Handle, part number HL15240. You can see the louvered tailgate once it's installed. Of course, we've got the drop down to allow for our use next to things like that to be connected without any problem. This is also going to give us an advantage in that this is about half the weight of a standard steel tailgate. It's also louvered. While we're dropping weight in the truck just like the new cars coming out, they don't have spare tires to help with fuel economy, losing weight is going to help us with our fuel economy, and this louvered design is going to allow air to pass through rather than be caught in there. It can really help to improve our fuel economy. This is a locking tailgate.
Today on our 2012 Chevrolet Silverado we're going to be installing the Draw-Tite Activator IV. This time-delayed brake controller is capable of controlling 1 up to 4 axles. The part number on it is 5504. We're also going to be using the replacement brake control plugin harness, part number 20127. Here you can see once it's installed. As we activate the switch we're going to see our gain lowering and rising indicating that we've got it hooked up properly. Now a couple of nice features about it are that currently we've got our gain set to 10.
Today on our 2012 Chevrolet Silverado, we're going to be installing the Curt Venturer. This time-delayed trailer brake controller is perfect for use with 1 to 3 axles. This part number is C51110. We're also going to be using the Universal Wiring Adapter, part number C51515. A great thing about the Venturer is the sync adjustment that's available on it. This little slide bar right here on the side, we can slide this forward or we can slide it back. Sliding it back towards us is going to give us gradual braking force, so as we apply the brake you're going to see this slowly work its way over to give us maximum brake engagement.
Today on our 2012 Chevrolet Silverado we're going to be installing the Draw-Tite Activator II. This time-delayed trailer brake controller is designed for use with one to four axles. Part number on it is 5500. We're also going to be using part number 20127. This is the Tow Ready replacement wiring harness. We'll be able to connect that right into the truck's electronics. Now here you can see as we bring our Activator lever over it's going to give us a digital readout on the level of braking force going to the rear.
Today on our 2012 Chevrolet Silverado we're going be installing the Draw-Tite activator. This is a trailer brake controller designed for use with one or two axles and it uses a time delayed set up. Part number is 5100. We're also going to be using part number 20127. This is the tow ready replacement wiring harness and we'll be able to connect that right into the truck's electronics. As we slide our bar in, we're going to have our red light indicating to right here that everything is working as it should. Right above that light and just to the right there's an output slide lever.
Today on our 2012 Chevrolet Silverado we're going to be doing an installation of the Tekonsha Voyager trailer brake controller. This is a one to four-axle controller and it is proportional.

Now if you we're to manually input power you'll see that change.
Today on our 2012 Chevrolet Silverado, we're going to be installing the Tekonsha Voyager Trailer Brake Controller. This is a 1 to 4 axle controller and it's proportional. Part number is 39510.

Today on our 2012 Chevrolet Silverado we're going to be installing the Dexter Axle Predator. This is a proportional electric brake controller capable of handling two up to four brakes. Part number on it is 58-8. The Predator is going to offer us a lever activation right here. That's going to allow us to gently apply our brakes from inside of the vehicle without actually using the brake force here on the floor. As you can see, once we do press in the blank 00:30 on the floor, it gives us a reading of .17, but since this is an inertia-activated system, if we're not moving it's really not going to provide a lot of force to those brakes in the back. A great thing about the an inertia-driven system is that when we really have those emergency stops and we really have to stand on the brake, it's going to sense that and it's going to give us a lot more power back there to help us come to a stop.

To unlock the handle, we'll pull out, rotate it towards the cab and it holds the handle out, keeping the pin inside the gooseneck head away from the center section so that we can remove the gooseneck ball.

Now, to begin our install, we're going to our 7-pole, supplied with the install kit, and mount it here in the pickup bed on the driver's side, behind the wheel well, in front of the tailgate. This will give us easy access. To mount it in the pickup bed side, we're going to go ahead and drill through the bed liner, through the sheet metal, and then mount it using the self-tapping screws provided with the install kit. Now, we need to make a hole large enough for the back of the 7-pole socket, so we're going to drill out a 2-1/8 inch hole as per the instructions.

Now we're going to go ahead and add 2750 pounds to the bed of our pickup. With our weight added, we'll now take a second measurement from the bottom of the wheel well to the ground.
