Today on our 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation Kit part number 946435. Here's what this gooseneck is going to look like once it's installed on the truck. As you can see there's not a whole lot of visible up here in the bed except for the ball itself and then the safety chain loops here which are spring-loaded so when not in use they suck back down and being in the lower section of bed corrugation they stay pretty low and flush to make sure that they don't interfere with the use of your bed. Overall, this gooseneck is a really nice heavy-duty gooseneck hitch that has a 30,000lbs capacity and 7,500lbs vertical load limit so it's definitely going to be able haul just about whatever gooseneck trailer you're going to need to pull as long as your truck is rated for it. I like the way that this hitch is constructed because it's nice and it's really going to get the job done for anything you need to do. Also, the hole that needs to be drilled in the bed is a little bit smaller than those on some of the other goosenecks that are able to hide the ball. That's just going to help cut down on the area that needs to be cut out and help for a little bit cleaner look.
Today on our 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 we're going to be taking a look at the Weather Tech front floor mats in black, part number WT440121, also available in grey, part number WT460121 and in tan, part number WT450121. I really like the way that these floor mats contour the floor board of the vehicle, and they help to provide that superior protection but also you have that confidence in knowing that nothing is getting off of these floor mats that's going to get ground into the carpet, so you don't have to worry about cleaning the carpet underneath nearly as often as you would with factory floor mats. Here you can see the factory floor mat. Overall, it gives us coverage right down here along the bottom, but it doesn't give us coverage to keep from getting anything underneath it there as you can see debris. Then here under the pedals you can see that doesn't give us very good coverage, so it's collecting dirt and debris right there. Now let's take this out and put our Weather Tech in. We'll slide our Weather Tech into place here.
Today on our 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 we're doing a test fit of the Curt 20x60 cargo carrier. This is a folding cargo carrier designed to work with 2-inch hitches and has a weight capacity of 500 pounds. We're going to start off by taking some measurements here. Ground clearance being first, we're going to have about 21 1/2-inches to the bottom of our carrier. Overall to our vehicle we're adding about 34 3/4-inches. Our closest point here is going to be about 14-inches away.
Today on our 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 we're doing a test fit of the Max Tow 48 by 21 Cargo Carrier. That part number is MT70422. Now, this is designed to work with two inch hitches and have a 500 pound weight capacity. Although it does have a pretty high weight capacity, it is very light weight. It's made out of an aluminum, so it's easy to insert and take out of your hitch. First thing we want to do is take a few measurements. Ground clearance being first, we're going to have about 21 inches. Overall, to our vehicle we're going to have about 28 1/4 inches.
Today on our 2008 Dodge Ram 2500, we're doing a test fit of the Stromberg Carlson 23x60 Cargo Carrier. That part number is CC-100. We already have our carrier installed. This is designed to work with 2 inch hitches and has a 500 pound weight capacity. Although it does have a pretty high weight capacity it is pretty light weight so it's easy to insert and take out of your hitch. We're going to start off with a few measurements. Ground clearance being first.
Today on our 2008 Dodge Ram 2500, we're doing a test fit of the Thule Gate Mate Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack. That part number is TH824. Now we already have this laid across our tailgate. We're going to show you how to get it installed and then show you an example of to mount your items on there. To start off, we just drape this over tailgate just like so. We're going to open up our pocket here or our flap. It's going to allow us to gain access to our door here and be able to open that up.
Today on our 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 we're doing a test fit of the Darby Extend-A-Truck hitch mounted load extender. That part number is DTA944. Now, we already have it loaded in our first position here. We're going to go over some features and then we'll show you our second position. One of the great features of this Extend-A-Truck is that we are able to adjust it up and down on these different mounting points to fit the different heights of your truck. If you have a roof rack on your truck, you can always lift this or even lower it to adjust to fit anything that might be sitting diagonal off of your bed. Here we have it just about even with our roof on our cab of our truck.
Today in our 2002 Dodge Ram 2500, we're going to be taking a look at installing the B,W custom under-bed installation kit for the companion fifth wheel trailer hitches. Part number BWGNRK1394-5W. This fifth wheel installation kit is designed to let you install your B,W companion fifth wheel trailer hitches. The adapters that work with this are part number BWRVK3500 or part number BWRVK3400. The under-bed design of this kit allows for full truck bed access. And when you're ready it's under 5 minutes to convert your empty truck bed into a fifth wheel hitch. We'll start off by unlocking our B,W hitch and installing our fifth wheel adapter. We have ours pre-assembled, so you can adjust the uprights here depending on your truck and trailer combination.
Today on our 2002 Dodge Ram 2500 we're going to be taking a look at and installing the BMW turnover ball under-bed gooseneck trailer hitch, with custom installation kit rated for 30,000 pounds. Part number BWGNRK1394. You can also use adapters for fifth wheels, part number BWRVK3500, or part number BWRVK3400. Some things that sets this set up apart from some of the other gooseneck hitches is that this one, with it being able to turn over here, it does help maintain a nice clean look, but you also don't have to keep the ball some place else. You can keep it right here so then when you need it, you can simply unlatch it, pull up using this little tab here and flip it over. Here's what this gooseneck hitch looks like from underneath the truck once it's installed. As you can see, it's nicely sitting on top of the frame rails and that's about as low as it's going to go except when the ball sticks out. It may come down just a little bit further.
Today in our 2006 Ram 2500, we're going to be taking a look at, and installing, the Husky Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches, part number HT31413-686. Here's what it looks like once its installed. It's got a nice, black, powder-coated finish. It's a custom kit that uses existing holes on your frame to help expedite in your installation time by not having to drill any holes in your frame. It's going to work with most of the 5th wheel hitch manufacturers on the market. One of the reasons you're going to want a hitch like this is, it's going to make your installation time very quick, because you're only going to have to drill four holes through the bed of your truck, where some of them are going to require you to put six or eight holes through the bed of your truck. We can go ahead and show you how it installs with our 5th wheel. Drop in down on; you'll take your pins, slide them through. We'll install our clip. Next we'll go ahead and show you how to install.
Today on our 2003 Dodge RAM pickup 2500 series, we will be installing the putco pure high performance 9007 halogen headlight bulbs. Part number P239007DW. This is what our old headlights looked like. And here is what our new putco pure high performance lights look like. Replace your factory headlights, and add a custom look to your vehicle with this double wide hue. It emits a bright white color that maintains the original look of you vehicle, but with a far greater light yield.
Today at our 2005 Dodge Ram 2500, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the blue ox 00:00:06 base plate kit with fixed arms, part number BX1989. When you're ready to tow, remove these rubber plugs which are going to keep dirt and grime out of your base plate. Put them in, rotate it until it locks and that's secure, and then we do the same thing on the other side. You're ready to hook up your tow bar. As you can see, we have a nice big area for our safety chains, it comes from our coach and we'll have room to mount our wiring. We can simply mount our six or seven pole connector, or four flat if that's what you're going to be using. They'll simply screw into those two there.
Today on our 2005 Dodge Ram 2500, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the SMI Air Force One supplemental braking system for motor homes with air brakes, part number SM99243. Here's what it looks like once it's installed, simply plug in your air and comes on. Once your air hose is disconnected, your system is turned off, plug it in and now your system is live. This is your breakaway switch so if your tow bar was to come unattached from the vehicle it would turn on and that would apply the brakes in the vehicle and let it coast to a stop on the side of the road. As you apply your air brakes in your coach, it pulls the pedal down. This system is proportional so when you're braking on your RV is at half your vehicle is at half and the further you go down the more brake you're going to apply to your towed vehicle. As you can see your backup camera as we apply our brakes, our red LED lights up that's on our rear-view mirror.
Today on our 2005 Dodge Ram 2500, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit, Part Number RM-15267. Now that we have it installed, you can see this nice coiled 7-way to 6-way power cord. It's coiled to keep it up off the ground. It'll stretch out and come back as it needs you as you turn the corners with the vehicle and the tow coach. Now, we can go ahead and test our system. We can try our tail lights, our left turn and brake, and our right turn and brake. Now, with our Tow Doctor hooked up, we're not going to get both bulbs on the brakes to flash at the same time, but if you have a turn signal bulb, it's going to be that they share the brake bulbs, so if that one's working, your brake bulb's going to work also. Let's go ahead and show you how to install it.
Today we'll be taking a look at the four best hitch options available for our 2009 Ram 3500. Up top we're going to have the CURT class five trailer hitch receiver, part number C15809. Next down we're going to have that Reese Titan, which is going to be part number 45288. The third one down here is going to be that CURT XD or extra duty receiver hitch, part number C15409. Down here on the bottom is going to be our Draw-Tite class four, part number 41929. Up top we're going to talk about these two, the CURT and the Reese.
Today on our 2008 Dodge Ram 3500, we'll be taking a look at and installing the Curt EZR Double Lock Underbed Gooseneck trailer hitch with installation kit. Part #C612-6600. When we're ready to tow our trailer, we're simply going to reach under, grab, pull it out, and tilt it to the side so it catches and drop in the ball. Notice that it's going to go in one way. Then, all you have to do is release your handle and lock it in place. With it locked in place, your ball isn't going to go anywhere. It's going to have the nice spring-loaded chain tie downs on either side that are going to allow you to put those safety chains right under. The center locator is a great feature of this hitch.
Today on our 2008 Dodge Ram 3500, we'll be taking a look at and installing the Tekonsha Primus IQ Proportional Trailer Brake Controller, part number TK90160, with assistance from the Tekonsha Plug-in Wire Adapter, part number 3020-P. Now here on our brake controller, you can see that it's going to be fully adjustable, with 3 different settings here on the side, so you can adjust the pitch or the controller on the inside of the vehicle. Not only that, we have our trailer connected now. You can note that by seeing the C on the side here. Press in the manual and you can see the gain for the manual switch on our trailer. Since this is a proportional braking system, this is going to be how much power you're putting out to those trailer brakes, as well as selecting from the different boost modes here on the top, depending on what trailer you have connected will depend on what boost you're going to select. The wheel here on the side is going to be the power wheel to adjust the power that's going back to your brakes.
Today on our 2008 Dodge Ram pickup 2500 quad cab, we'll be doing an install of the Clazzio Perforated Leather Seat Covers in tan, part number L-EADOB7021TTT. Also available in grey, part number L-EADOB7019GGG. The Clazzio seat covers are a custom leather seat cover that contours exactly to fit your specific vehicle. It features memory foam inserts that provide a nice, cushioned ride. As you can see, the memory foam covers most of the underside of our seat covers. The leather is treated with an anti-bacterial and anti-odor coating. The seat covers are specially threaded to be durable, yet able to break in the case of an airbag deployment.
On this 2006 Dodge Ram Pickup, 2500 Series, we're going to review and install the Tekonsha Primus IQ Trailer Break Controller. Part number: TK90160. Also, to help us with our install, we'll be using part number: 3020-P from Tekonsha. This is a Dodge Break Control Wire Harness. This is what the Tekonsha Primus IQ Break Controller looks like, when installed in our Dodge truck. This is your manual override control right here. This only applies the breaks on the trailer, if you ever need it. Take a look at our display here, it also shows an NC, which means no connection to a trailer, which is correct for us right now.
On this 2006 Dodge Ram Pickup, 2500 series. We're going to show you the Hide-A-Goose under bed gooseneck trailer hitch with the installation kit. Part number 9464-35. This is what the hitch looks like when it's installed in our truck. As you can see there's really not much to it. It's all very flat and doesn't stick above the bed of the truck, until you put the hitch ball into place.
