Starting over here on the driver side we are just going to set them under the pedals and just let the contours of the floor liner match up with the contours of the vehicle and that pretty much will allow you to quickly and easily set them into position. You will notice the diamond plate texture and you will notice the reinforced section here which is typically the first area where most floor liners give out because this is where you rest your foot when using the gas and brake pedal. Moving on to the passenger side installation is just as easy. Again we will set the floor liner in place and let it match up with the contours of the Silverado. And that will conclude the review of the Husky custom-molded floor liners part number HL31411.

Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs Installation - 2003 Chevy Silverado

Today on this 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500 series we are going to be installing Firestone air ride system part number F2250. Before we actually get started working on the vehicle itself, we are going to do a little prep work to our air suspension kit. We are installing on the passenger side of the vehicle first. And I have the parts necessary for the passenger side laid out right here. The bottom bracket which is this larger piece right here is going to be standard. It will be the same piece on both the driver and passenger sides. The upper bracket, however, is going to be different. If you look on the bottom side of the bracket, there is an R or and L punched in there for right or left side of the vehicle. And you will notice that the part numbers are different as well. So, t he right one is going to be for the passenger side of the vehicle. We will take the air spring and we want to remove the coverings here from the top two studs and for the threaded portion for the air fitting. We are going to start the installation off by mounting the air spring to the upper bracket. What we want to take is one of the 3/8 by 1-1/2 inch bolts and go ahead and it from the bottom of the bracket up on the short leg. If you look at the bracket, you can see there is a higher leg and a shorter leg. You want to feed that onto the shorter leg. Go ahead and take the provided heat shield and it onto the air spring and put the upper bracket on. We are going to align the two 3/8 inch holes over the two studs on the air spring. Then we will take two of the locking hex nuts and go ahead and mount the upper bracket to the air spring. The heat shield here is only going to be used on the passenger side of the vehicle. And what we want to do when we tighten these 3/8 bolts down is to make sure the bracket stays aligned where the larger hole goes over where the air fitting is going to be. The fitting will thread in easily by hand until you get to the thread locker and then it will get hard to turn. Once you get to that point, go ahead and take a wrench and get it to fully seat another ¾ to one full turn. And what we want is the open end of the fitting to face out towards the heat shield. 2:06



TruXedo TonneauMate Toolbox Installation - 2011 Chevy Silverado

And this part number also contains a special clamp kit for GM trucks that come with the cargo management systems. First off, this is what the toolbox looks like when installed on the vehicle. And next we will show you the rail system that gets clamped on. You can see how the rail system attaches to the truck bed itself and how it does not interfere with the factory cargo system. As shown here, we have the driver side installed. And we will go ahead and show you how to install the passenger side. The first thing we need to do is loosen up the factory cargo system. In the corner towards the cab there is a plastic cover that has to be removed so we can loosen up the rail. Let us go ahead and do that first. And there are three bolts: one, two and there is our third bolt. So what we will do is go ahead and loosen all of these bolts. We will not remove them because we do not want to lose the assembly that is behind the sheet metal of the bed. Back all of these about an inch on all three of them. Then you can pull the rail back and you can see how much bolt you have left over on the inside. So here you can see the bolt where it goes into the assembly that holds everything together. Just keep loosening it up until you barely have one or two threads showing. That will give us plenty of room to work around it. And these are all three identical on the rail. 1:23

This particular vehicle has the factory installed 7-pole on it which you can see here is mounted to the factory installed hitch. To ensure that it is the factory installed 7-pole that we are looking at if you look at the front facing of the plug you can see the GM logo right there at the bottom. Some of the newer vehicles may have this plug mounted right here as well and having this factory installed 7-pole is going to ensure the least amount of work that we are going to need to do to install the brake controller. Even if you have just the factory installed 4-pole on the vehicle the brake controller can still be mounted using the wiring harness but there will be additional work that you will have to do. 00:59

We will also lower the exhaust because above the exhaust there is a heat shield and we need to move the exhaust out of the way so that we can cut the heat shield out of the way. We will look at the passenger side frame rail of the vehicle and this is the heat shield that goes all the way across. We are actually going to remove two sections of this. We are going to remove this section here from this hat channel as far back as we can because right here is where we have to have wrench access to tighten down parts. The second section we are going to remove is on this side of the hat channel, there are two right in a row, so we are going to cut across here and we are going to go all the way to the next hat channel up here and go across as well. 00:57



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2011 Chevrolet Silverado

Today on this 2011 Chevy Silverado pickup, we are going to be installing the Prodigy P2 brake controller part number 90885. Our 2011 Silverado actually comes with a factory installed brake control wiring package on it already. So, there is no need for use to run the wires manually. The wires that we are looking to wire our brake controller into are located underneath the dash area, just directly above the brake pedal. These wires are open ended and are taped to the main wiring lead. If you locate the wires and pull them out a little bit, you can see that there is actually a label tied to it that indicates which wire is which. And that way you will know that you have the correct wires for the brake controller. So with the wires located, we can go ahead and cut the tape that is holding it to the main wiring harness lead here. And that will allow us to pull it down so we have some more working room. And with those pulled down, we will quickly go over the wires that we have here. We are actually only going to be using four of these wires to hook to our brake controller. And we are going to go ahead and wire those together now. 1:00

The easiest way to do it, honestly, is to go straight to the battery. You do not have to worry about any unnecessary connections. That being said, battery terminals do corrode over time. That could end up losing the connection due to corrosion that way. That being said that batteries do corrode which can lead to problems connecting to the brake controller, another way, that is not recommended by the manufacturer but it could be done technically, you could come off of this post here which is supplied by a 30 amp fuse. And then what you could do is come off here, go to your 20 amp reset breaker, so there is still a fuse with the right amperage, and make your connections here for the positive. And you could run your connection all of the way up to, say like this battery here, has a connection to the frame or to the body. You could probably make your connection there. Because, sometimes you run into a situation where the connections are already corroded up and it is probably not in the best interest to go ahead and take them apart again and redo them because you might have a bigger headache that you are not prepared to deal with. You could probably do it that way. In this case, I think we will go ahead and use this battery here. This truck actually has two batteries set up. 1:09



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2000 Chevy Silverado Part 2

The wires are ran from the rear to the front. However, they are pretty much out of reach. They are actually buried right down below the brake booster here. The blue and orange wires are kind of coiled up there. Basically, you have to climb on top of the engine, reach down and break them loose and pull them up. And even so, half of the time they are not long enough to work with. So you have to extend them, especially for the blue wire anyway. All right, the next thing that I am going to do, since we are here, is go ahead and hook up our hot lead. Basically, you can use either one of these posts. I believe these two fuses take care of the power going to these posts. And they fit in the little pocket there. They do not come with any nuts on here. So, you will have to go out and get you some metric 10 millimeter nuts to fit this stud. You will have to get this nut separate, from the hardware store. And it is an 8 millimeter nut in thickness and diameter. And the thread pitch is 1.25. 0:46 Put that on there for now. Next what we need to do is go underneath the dash and drill out a hole to get between the engine compartment and the dashboard. 0:55



Pilot Automotive Nerf Bar Installation - 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500

Today, on this 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500 series regular cab, we will be installing the Bully Nerf Bars part number NB-103.

And that is going to provide our forward attaching point for our Nerf Bar. And you will notice that the bushing is coming out as well, with the bolt. And that is okay, but we are going to be putting this bushing back up into place when we get our brackets set up. If we go a little bit further back, just about even with the edge of the door, we have a second body mounting bracket, again with the same bolt. Again, we are going to remove this one as well and get the new bracket and hardware in place as well. 0:52

Trailer Hitch Installation - 2004 Chevrolet Silverado

Today we are going to be installing Curt hitch part number 13322 on a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado. The first thing we want to do is to go ahead and lower our spare tire and get it out of the way so we have more room to work with. And then next I am going to go ahead and point out the attaching points for the trailer hitch. You can see here at the bottom of the bumper we have got two existing weld nuts. These are going to provide the two rearmost fasteners. At the end of the frame, you can see we have got an existing bolt. We are going to remove that and put a new fastener in its place to provide the middle attaching point. And then again, there is an existing hole here more forward on the frame, and that will provide our third attaching point. And to clean out the weld nuts, I am going to go ahead and spray them down with a spray lubricant, like a WD-40. And I am just going to take a wire brush and run that through there, and that will help to clean them out - get the corrosion and rust out of there. And once I have cleaned them out, I am going to go ahead and put the bolts in and run them in and out a few times just to further clean them.

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2000 Chevy Silverado Part 1

On this 2000 C/K Series Pickup we are going to install brake controller part number 39523 from Tekonsha. This is their Powertrac brake controller. This factory tow package also applies to Chevrolet and GMC trucks as far back as I believe the early 90s. I do not know down to 88 or not. It was new bought when this body style came out. We are going to begin our install work from the rear of the vehicle and work our way forward. The tow package on this body style is all stored right here behind the bumper and this channel underneath the bed of the pickup truck. All you have got to do is cut this down and pull it out. There is a harness that you pull out and it is designed to be spliced onto. For the towing package from a brake controller and a hot lead it is actually ran inside the frame and it does not come that far back. That is located on the frame on the driver side. 00:48



CIPA Custom Towing Mirror Review

We are going to be showing this installed on a 2004 Chevy Pickup Full Size. We will show you how it goes on, it is a pretty simple device. Before we begin our install what we need to do is two things, first off it is a good idea to clean off the mirror. This is so when you push the extension on the vehicle it does not push the dirt into the mirror and possibly ruin your finish. After that we need to assemble the mirror itself. That requires putting a felt pad on the wedge that you see off to the right hand side. Once we have that, we can go ahead and install the mirror. This does not have to be perfect because this is actually all going to be on the inside of the mirror. Once you have your sticker in place this wedge actually gets installed inside the mirror and there is actually a little notch back here for this to fit into. It is kind of a loose fit but it has to move around a little bit and it has to sit in these two grooves right here.
