It features a digital LED display and also has three levels of boosts to increase or decrease the trailer braking power as needed. It can be mounted between 0 degrees and 70 degrees nose up. And it is covered by a limited lifetime warranty. In the packaging for the brake controller, you will find the brake controller itself, as well as a fixed black plastic mounting bracket and a black metal bracket that we will not be using. You will also find a packet of screws for attaching the bracket to the vehicle and the controller to the bracket, as well as a generic harness with loose wire ends. But since we have our custom fit harness today, we will not be using that wiring. Let us head to the vehicle. 1:13



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2005 Dodge Ram 1500

Today on this 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 we are going to install part number 20250 from Tow Ready. What the part number is is it replaces the 4-pole. We are going to use it to replace the very corroded Dodge factory connector. Basically we are going to start off by snipping off the old wires and starting fresh. Now this will almost match up color for color: green to green, yellow to yellow, brown to brown. However, the ground on the factory harness is going to be black. So that will go to white on our replacement part. 0:28

Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2007 Dodge Ram 1500

Today on this 2007 Dodge Ram 1500, we are going to install part number 9464-38 from Draw-Tite. This is the Hide-A-Goose gooseneck hitch. What we have done so far is gone ahead and removed the spare tire and the wheels on the back axle. You do not have to take the tires off of the vehicle but it makes the installation a lot easier to do. Also in this case, it might be a good idea to loosen the exhaust up in order to have room to install the hitch head as well. In this case however, we are actually going to do it a little bit different. We are actually going to loosen the bed itself up, tilt it up and we will install the gooseneck hitch as one piece. There are three bolts on each side we need remove to loosen the bed. We have this one here, and on the back side towards the tailgate and there is one hidden at the very back end of the rail right here. We are going to use a piece of timber to help push up the bed and then we will use a small block of wood to actually hold it in there while we install the hitch itself. 1:02



Firestone Work-Rite Load Assist Installation - 2009 Dodge Ram 1500

Today on this 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 we are going to install part number F8620 from Firestone. This is their Work-Rite Load Assist. To give you an idea of what is going on the new Firestone part actually replaces the factory bump stop right here. When you have the truck fully loaded, the only way it is going to stop is when it hits this bump stop and goes down to the axle. You can see we have got quite a bit of difference so if we put a load in the back of the truck or bounce up and down the road you can see how much travel this has. 00:28



Timbren Front Vehicle Suspension Installation - 2007 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500

Today on this 2007 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 series we are going to install part number TDF25004B from Timbren. This is their suspension enhancement system. This is going to get mounted on to the front suspension of the vehicle. The first thing you need to do is lift the vehicle off the suspension so it can hang down so we have plenty of room to work. Also next we are going to remove the front wheel. This is the factory bump stop and the Timbren component is going to replace this. It is just pressed in so all we have got to do is take the screw driver and pry it out. We are going to show you the components to the Timbren system. 00:37



Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs Installation - 1998 Dodge Ram 2500

Today on this 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 2WD we are going to install part number F2071 from Firestone, the Ride-Rite Suspension System. Before we start our install on the truck we need to do some pre-assembly on our table of some components. To begin our assembly we are going to use these main components. This bracket is going to get bolted to the frame itself, obviously the air bag itself. Take our little covers off. What is going to happen is the bracket is going to sit on top of the air bag just like that. Then we will take two flange lock nuts and run them down tight right now. :40



Timbren Rear Vehicle Suspension Installation - 2007 Dodge Ram 2500

Today on this 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 Heavy Duty we are going to install Timbren suspension enhancement system part number TDR2500CA from Timbren. The first thing we want to do is get the truck in the air. Basically we want to loosen the suspension up so that it hangs freely so it is easier to work with. First we will remove the back wheel so we can get to everything a lot easier. The first thing we need to do is remove the factory bump stop right here. There is two bolts here and here. It is a good idea to spray some lubricant on them to help break them loose and remove this whole assembly. This piece will be removed and stay off. We will keep the original factory hardware though. 00:46



CIPA Extendable Towing Mirror Installation - 2006 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500

Today on this 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup truck we are going to install part number 73600 from CIPA. This is their extendable trailer towing mirror. To begin our install the first thing we need is roll down the window itself. Then we have to start removing the inside trim panel. There are a few fasteners but it will not be too bad to do. We will work our way from top to bottom on this. We are going to start off with this screw right here and work our way down. The next thing we need to do is remove this panel. This will just come out for now and we are going to take our trim panel removal tool and go underneath the edge and pry it up. 00:37



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 1990 Dodge Ram Pickup

Today on this 1990 Dodge Ram Pickup we are going to be installing Prodigy brake controller part number 90185 along with brake controller wiring kit part number ETBC7. We are going to start our installation back here at the rear of the vehicle and we are going to install our 7-pole at the rear first. The first thing we want to do is mount the bracket for the 7-pole. This particular vehicle has a nice large bumper that we can drill into. You just want to find a nice mounting location. Mark the holes and drill those out. I am just going to be using some self tapping screws to accomplish this. You can also drill 1/ 4 inch hole out if you like and use the provided hardware down through the bumper. Next we are going to take the 7-pole adapter from the ETBC7. Mount it on to the bracket and we are going to be doing that using the provided hardware. The next step is to merge up the 4-pole end on our 7 and 4 way adapter to the existing 4-pole that is on the vehicle. If you do not have an existing 4-pole you will need to add that on as well. However, this existing 4-pole unfortunately is not compatible with our 4-pole that we have on our adapter so what I am going to have to do is cut the ends off and wire them in direct. 01:14



Trailer Hitch Installation - 1990 Dodge Ram Pickup

Today on this 1990 Dodge Ram Pickup we are going to be installing Curt hitch part number 14001. The first thing we want to do is lower our spare tire so we have a little more working room. Look over at the driver side frame rail. On this particular vehicle we do have an existing large hole at the end of the frame. We are going to be using that as the rear most attaching point on both the driver and passenger side. We are going to put the hardware in place there where we are actually going to have to drill two forward most holes on both sides of the frame. Into each one of the holes we are going to be using the 1/ 2 inch carriage bolt along with the 1-1/ 2 by 2 inch block. We are going to combine the two and lay them inside the frame with the threads facing down. 00:33



WeatherTech Window Visor Installation - 2009 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500

We are going to be installing WeatherTech side window deflectors, part number WT80503. So, I am going to start by installing it here at the front, making sure that this piece is on the outside. We are going to the recessed areas and these are in channel visors. So we want the top sections, the thinned out portion, to go ahead and to sit inside the channel. And then with the front corner ed, we just actually want to go to t he rear section of the air deflector. When it is just sitting on top, it actually overlaps the door quite a bit. So what we are going to have to do is actually fold it down so that it can be ed into the channel. You can see there is quite a bit of flex in t he window visor. You want to make sure that you are not installing this in any weather that is under 50 degrees because that bending of the visor could actually crack the visor if it is not warm enough. 0:47



Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2001 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500

Today on this 2001 Dodge Ram eight foot bed 2500 series we are going to install gooseneck hitch part number 9460-39. We need to do a couple of things first to get ready to install this hitch. First off we need to lower the spare tire so we have room to work underneath. Second, the fender well has a plastic cover on the inside. We need to remove that so we can get room for the side brackets to install those into the frame. First we will take off the mud flap and then we will take out the fender liner. After you drill out these two rivets you are going to need a right angle drill. These rivets never seem to do too much work so they just pop right off. This will be reinstalled once we get done. Next we are going to lower our exhaust. We are going to just take these rubber hangers, spray them down with some lubricant, and slide them off and push them off to the side. Also to take note this is an after market exhaust, basically the hitch is designed for stock exhaust in figurations. 01:16



WeatherTech Mud Flap Installation - 2009 Dodge Ram 1500

Today on this 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 series pickup, we will be installing the WeatherTech mud flaps front and back, part number WT110024-120024. We are going to start our installation with the front mud flaps and we are going to start on the driver side. The first thing we want to do is go ahead and turn our front wheels all the way to the left to maximize the clearance between the tire and the fender well. Next we want to locate our mud flap. And on the back side you will see that they are marked L.H. for the left hand side and R.H. for the right hand side. We want the L.H. one for the driver side here. Before we get our installation started, we want to make sure that this area is nice and clean so that the grime does not build up in between our mud flap and our fender well. The mounting holes that we are going to be using for our mud flap are going to be this one here, into the existing hole here in the fender well. And we are actually going to remove this screw here from the bottom and reuse it to install the mud flap. 0:56



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2009 Dodge Ram 3500 Series

Today on this 2009 Dodge Ram 3500 Series we will be installing the fifth wheel and goose neck wiring harness part number V30137. The first thing I want to note before we get started is that our harness comes in two separate pieces. We have got the 7-pole which is what we are going to be mounting in to the bed of the truck and then we have got the wiring harness itself. The wiring harness has two different ends on it. The one end of the wiring harness has a larger round plug and that is what is going to plug directly into the back of our 7-pole. The other end which we are going to feed down through the opening in between the bed and the fender well has the two square ports. The first thing I am going to do is drill out the hole in the bed for the 7-pole. We are going to be using a two inch hole saw to accomplish this. Next we are going to feed the square ports through the hole that we just drilled down underneath the vehicle. Then we want to plug in the round port into the back of the 7-pole and we just want to make sure we hear the snap so that we know that the two ends are engaged. 01:00



Timbren Front Suspension Kit Installation

Today, on this 2001 Dodge Ram 2500, we are going to install Timbren front suspension kit, part number TDF25004B. Alright, this is the Timbren suspension enhancement system and we are seeing half of the kit. This is the part that we are going to use on the driver side of the vehicle. Alright, as you can see here, it has the rubber spring on the bottom half and then on the top part is a thin metal plate. And then on top of that is another rubber part that can actually get pushed into the bump stop cup that is located on the frame of the vehicle. What you need to do is lift the frame of the vehicle up to loosen the suspension up, so we have more working room. 0:32



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2009 Dodge Ram Pickup

Today on this 2009 Dodge Ram we will be installing the Tekonsha P3 brake controller along with the wiring harness for it, part number 90195-3020P. The first thing I want to point out is the factory installed 7-pole at the rear of the vehicle and this will be the indicator of whether or not your vehicle is going to have the factory installed brake control port under the dash. The factory 7-pole we are looking for is built into the bumper. It will have the Chrysler logo built on the front. If you do not have this plug you will likely not have the port under the dash that we are going to be plugging into. Thus will have to hardwire your brake controller into the vehicle. 00:38



Fifth Wheel Hitch Kit Installation - 2009 Dodge Ram 3500 Series Mega Cab

Today on this 2009 Dodge Ram 3500 Series Mega Cab we will be installing the signature series rail kit part number 30074. The first thing we want to do in preparation to installing our cross members under the bed is to remove our spare tire and get it out of the way so we have some more working room. The cross members we are going to be installing are going to be sitting in between the two hat channels right above the exhaust and over top of the gas tank as well. On standard models you can follow the directions to fit the cross members in from underneath the bed and just manipulate them into position. However on this mega cab model the spacing is not there for us to do that so what I am going to do is loosen up the bed and slide the cross members in from the outside of the frame directly across over the top. 00:48



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Dodge Ram 1500

Today on this 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 Pickup we will be installing the Valley hitch part number V82861. We are at the back of the vehicle, looking at the step bumper. The center most attachment point for our trailer hitch is actually going to be the opening for the hitch ball here on the bumper. The large 3/ 4 inch bolt along with a flat washer, and we are going to insert it down through the opening for the hitch ball. That is actually going to thread in to a weld nut that is built in to the trailer hitch for this attachment point. :30



Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 HD

Today on this 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Heavy Duty we are going to install part number 9464-35 from Draw-Tite. All right, we are underneath the bed of the truck right now. First step is to pull the exhaust out of the way. We will go ahead and remove this rubber hanger here, theres one here, and a couple on the muffler in the back itself. Sometimes they have these little clips on here, so what you want to do is take a pair of pliers and just kinda work them off. Then you can take the rubber hanger off. :25



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 Dodge Ram 1500

Today on this 1999 Dodge 1500 Pickup, we are going to install part number 90185 Prodigy Brake controller. We are also going to install this T-1 harness part number 118329 from Tow Ready and we are going to install this brake controller also with part number ETBC7. First off we are going to start off installing the part of the T-1 wiring harness part number 118329. We need to do that so our ETBC7 has a 4-pole to plug into. The connection points are underneath the tail light over here. What we are going to do is push the button on top and pull down the bottom and it will come apart. And we are working on the passenger side. On the passenger side we will install the connector with the green wire. All right, we will go ahead and route our 4-pole wire over to the center and then we will run our yellow wire, run that over past the center to the driver side tail light and we will make the same connection underneath the driver side tail light.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 1999 Dodge Pickup

Today on this 1999 Dodge, we will be installing part number 90195-3020P. The P3 part. The first thing I want to note on this vehicle here at the rear is the 7-pole plug. This is actually a factory 7-pole plug which is going to allow us simply to plug our brake controller and adapter into place and go. To figure out if you have the factory 7-pole plug, you will note that this has got the welded bracket to the factory installed trailer hitch and if you actually look at the cover of the 7-pole, you will see the Chrysler logo and if you look closely you will see the actual Chrysler name written across the front. Those two indicators will help you know that you have got the correct factory plug.



EGR Bug Shield Installation - 2009 Dodge Ram 2500

Today we are going to install part number 392354 from EGR. This is a chrome bug shield. We are going to install this on a 2009 Dodge 2500 Full Size Pickup. All right we will show you where it mounts up on the vehicle itself. The bug shield is going to actually go between this part of the grill and the hood. We will slide the unit in between the hood and the grill and tighten it back up. Lets go ahead and pop the hood open and loosen the screws.



Putco Window Visor Installation - 2009 Dodge Ram

Today we are going to install part number P580178 from Putco, and we are going to install this on a 2009 Dodge Ram full-size pickup. These vent visors will install in the channel with the window, and these will actually have a little bit of adhesive on them to help them stick to the inside of the channel of the door itself. The track that the vent visor fits into is right here, all the way down. And what happens is that the adhesive on the vent visor itself will actually attach to this inside edge on top up here, inside this edge right here. So before you peel the backing off the adhesive, it is a good idea to always do a test of it first. So let us put it right in the channel and just pop it into place. Then you have a good idea of where the adhesive sticks onto the weatherstripping here.



Front Mount Trailer Hitch Installation - 2007 Dodge Ram

Today we are going to install part number 65046. This is a front-mount receiver hitch from Draw-Tite, and we are going to install this front-mount hitch on a 2007 Dodge Ram pickup truck. The hitch is going to mount to the bottom of the frame here. We are going to have to drill two holes out. It is also going to mount to this bottom bolt right here. What we are going to do first is go ahead and take these two bolts loose. They are connected by a strap on the other side, so we have to take the nuts off both sides. We are going to loosen these up, support the bumper, and then put the hitch on the lower bolts here. And then we will hang it by that side, and then we will do the same thing on the other side. We are only using one spacer plate because this truck has the tow hooks already in place. Make sure we put our bolt back in and then put our nut back into place. All right, we can go ahead and install the nut on the top bolt and snug that down.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Dodge Ram

Today we are going to install part number 75662 from Draw-Tite, and we are going to install this on a 2006 Dodge Ram full-size pickup. First we will show you where the hitch mounts onto the vehicle. It does mount onto the crossbar that is underneath the bumper here basically, like half a hitch is already there. It also is going to tie into the bumper itself. And what is going to happen is this cover for the center ball hole here is going to be actually used by the hitch. What we are going to do is pop this cover off, and we are going to a bolt that goes through here down to the hitch. Let us go ahead and take a look at the bottom of the bumper and give you a better idea of how the hitch is going to mount up.



Hoppy Tailgate EasyLift Review

Today we are going to show you part number 74211 from Hoppy. This is Hoppys Tailgate EasyLift. What this is, is a device that actually takes the weight off the tailgate and makes it easier to lift up and down. In most cases it will take up to 80 percent of the weight of the tailgate off your hands. It is actually pretty easy to install. As soon as you open it up you can see the instructions on what to do to install it. Basically you only have to drill two holes. One gets drilled into the tailgate itself and the other gets drilled into the truck bed itself. Most of the time on a tailgate you take two arms and you have got to really kind of push and shove it up in there. With the EasyLift it actually does not require that much effort at all. You can do it easily one-handed while probably carrying something in that arm, too. And also, when you let it down, it does not really flop down all that hard it actually has a controlled descent. And again, it just makes it smooth going up into the bed when you close it. And there you have it for part number 74211 from Hoppy, the Tailgate EasyLift.



Trailer Wiring Harness Adapter Installation - 2006 Dodge Ram 1500

Today we are going to install part number 37185 on an 2006 Dodge Ram 1500. And this has the factory 4-pole installed with the vehicle, from the factory. What we are going to do is upgrade this up from a 4-pole to a 7-pole and 4-pole combination. And we are going to start by using this factory cut-out here for the 7-pole itself. It is actually just a cover. It just pops off, and we can install our 7-pole adapter right there. Before we install this into the bumper, we have to do one little modification, because the bumper is just a little bit too small. Basically we are just going to grind the little edge off here, just about 1 inch on the passenger side - just enough to help it pop into place, right here. Go ahead and install it. There it is, just enough room to snap into place. Then we will put our four bolts in to hold it secure.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Dodge Ram 1500

Today we are going to install part number 82534 from Hidden Hitch. We are going to install this on a Dodge Ram 1500. First off, the hitch we are going to install on the frame and the side brackets. We are going to use this hole here, this one at the end of the frame, and this side bracket. It is going to be the same on both sides. And also, this install requires that the factory hitch not be installed on the vehicle. To begin our install, actually we are going to go ahead and put the hitch up against the frame. And there are two bolts that we are going to run into on the side brackets that hang down vertically. We are going to use those to put the hitch into position, and then we are going to wire the bolts to the frame. To show you an example here, some models have a significant gap between the hitch frame and the bracket coming down. It will be pretty similar on both sides if yours is off. It does come with these optional spacers right here to put in between the frame. They will go right here, and then that will take up some of the extra slack in there. When you tighten down the hitch, the bracket and the hitch will conform to take up the necessary space. We will go ahead and install these spacers on this particular hitch.

Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Dodge Ram

First thing to do is lower the spare tire. The next step involved is to go ahead and sliding the rails into the bed of the pickup truck. They will fit in between the bed and the frame. What we will do is slide them sideways and once we get them in place we will flip them up to the right side up. We also installed one bolt loosely in the rail because we will use that when we want to attach the head assembly on. The bolt has to be facing this way because once we have it in place we will not be able to tighten it down or get to it very well. Also there are two different lengths as well. The short one goes in the front and long one goes towards the rear. Next we will go ahead, since we have the rails in there, we will flip them up into position. The stickers will tell you which way to go with it. Next step involved is to go ahead and mark the bed so we can drill our hole in the center of the bed. The instructions will tell you exactly what to do, basically you will get a measurement from the rear of the bed to right above the axle and center it left to right. Once you do that, you go ahead and make a punch mark and get ready to drill it out. In this case were going to go ahead and punch it out and drill a small hole just to make sure this is a spray on bed liner.



Trailer Wiring Harness Adapter Installation - 2006 Dodge Ram

Today we are going to install part number 37185 on our 2006 Dodge full size pickup 1500 with the 4 pole wiring flat installed from the factory. To begin our install the bumper already has a knockout ready for a 7 pole trailer connector. All I have to do is pop off this cover and it is ready to go. Next we can go ahead and install our 7 pole. Basically you just plug it right in and then give it a little push so it snaps into place. Now we can go ahead and install our hardware. We can now move under the vehicle to make some of our final connections here. In this application we are just going to install the 4 pole. There is not a brake controller or hot lead being used so we will bind this all back up and tuck it out of the way. We will go ahead and install some dielectric grease in here then install them together.
