We chose to use the small metal bracket and the plastic clips that allow you to remove the brake controller easily, if you so choose. First, we're going to go ahead and run our wires underneath the dash a little bit and make sure that we can get it to come out where we want to. As you can see here, we're able to pull the wires out, to allow just enough room to mount our brake controller and hide most of the wires up behind the dash.

Now that we have our plastic backing on the back side of each of the Roll X rails, now, we're going to go ahead and put the weather stripping across the front of the bed as this vehicle does not have a drop in plastic liner so we'll need this piece of weather stripping to make our Tonneau cover weather tight. This again has two sided tape on the back of it and we'll just cut it to length either using a pair of scissors or a razor knife. Once we have it cut to length, we'll go ahead and set the foam piece starting at one side, peeling the back off and working it down on the top of the bed rail as we move across from one side to the other.

Now we will try our red wire for our brake signal. OK, that is good there. Now we will try our blue wire and that will be our output.

You want to have this towards the back of the truck when you install the rails. Scoot it all the way towards the front and make sure that touches the front rail. Once we have it the way we want, we are just going to use a clamp just to hold it in place. We will start working on the clamps that will hold it permanently in place. Take your clamp, push it into place. I like to go as far as I can on the inside edge of the rail and try to go as far back as possible. 1:03

Truck Bed Swing Out Step Installation on a 2003 Ford F-150

Today on this 2003 Ford F-150 we are going to install part number AS-550 from Bully Truck Accessories. This part gets mounted behind the cab of the vehicle so it gives you a step to easily reach into the bed of the truck. This kit will fit a variety of vehicles, but today we are just going to do the steps that are involved for our pickup. :19



Tailgate Light Strip Installation

Today on this 2008 Ford F-150 we will be showing you how to install the Bully LED tailgate fire strip part number TLB-001. The tailgate fire strip installs at the back of the bed in between the tailgate and the bumper. The fire strip installs to that area using a double sided adhesive tape so we will need to clean that area out before we can install it. For video purposes I am actually going to remove the tailgate. That will make it a lot easier. With the tailgate removed we can test fit the fire strip. The kit comes preassembled with the two longer pieces together which for some vehicles will be enough. There is a 24 inch extension piece that can go directly in the middle for vehicles that are a little bit wider. Just give it a test fit to see if you are going to need that extension piece or not. 00:44



Master Lock Truck Bed Security Lock Review

Today we are going to review part number 8287DAT from Master Lock, the truck bed security you lock and also accompanying part number 78DPF this is their Master Lock 10 millimeter braided security cable. First thing we will go over is the components of the lock itself. You can see it has the mount that goes to the truck bed itself, the actual lock, and the U bolt part and then also it comes with an Allen key and also a set of keys. This unit we will mount to the truck bed in two different ways. First off as shown here that the hardware is used to install it to the stake pocket on the top of the bed itself. This lock can also replace one of the tie down points on the bed of the vehicle. To begin our install what we are going to have to do is actually take apart the lock and that is a good way to show you how it works. 00:41



Longview Custom Towing Mirrors Installation - 2006 Ford F-150

Today on this 2006 Ford F-150 we will be installing the Longview adjustable towing mirror part number CTM2300-A. The longview towing mirrors are very easy to use and only take a few seconds to install. To install what you need to do is slide the mirror over our existing mirror until it is fully seated. You will see here on the vehicle side we have got a hole. We are going to be using this clip that is provided and all we need to do is take the hook end of the clip and hook it on to the inside of the mirror to where the thread is faced towards the hole in the back side and then we will just take the thumb screw, feed it through the hole and thread it on to the clip. 00:37



Trailer Hitch Installation - 1996 Ford F150

Install part number V82460 from Valley we will install this 2 inch receiver hitch on a 1996 Ford F150 pickup truck. First thing what you want to do is installing the hitch on this vehicle is you want to go ahead and lower the spare tire down. As you can see we already have that down and out of the way. Next we will show you where the hitch mounts up on the frame. The hitch will mount to the bottom of the frame rail but there are no existing holes so we will have to drill out all the holes on this hitch. It will be identical on both sides. :26



Fifth Wheel Hitch Kit Installation - 1998 Ford F-150 and F-250 Light Duty

Today on this 1998 Ford F-150 we will be installing the fifth wheel rails and brackets part number 50042-6008. We are up underneath the vehicle and we need to do a couple of things in preparation before we can get started. We first want to lower the spare tire and get that out of the way to give us a little bit more working room. Second we need to go ahead and lower the exhaust off of the rear most hanger here and what we are actually going to do is go ahead and unbolt it from the side of the frame. There is two nuts on the inboard side that we need to go ahead and take off. That will allow that to come down. Then after that we just need to remove the heat shield here as well. You will see that there are four screws that are holding that on that need to come down. We also need to remove the forward heat shield as well. With the under body stuff finished we can go ahead and go up inside of the bed and go ahead and set up our front rail here. 01:17



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 1990 Ford F-150

Today on this 1990 Ford F-150, we are going to install part number ETBC7 and part number 118316 from Tow Ready. So with the ETBC7 kit we are going to install the brake controller part number 5500 from Draw-Tite and it is the activator to the brake controller. First off what we will do is we will start off by installing the 4-pole wiring flat part number 118316 and that will give us a 4-pole to work off of for ETBC7 kit. We are not going to use all of this wire here so what we will do is we will just go ahead and wrap it up next to the harness just to take up the extra slack because this is going to go right to the ETBC7 kit. And what will happen is we will plug this in to the ETBC7 kit which will get mounted onto the bumper. Which we want to install that bracket next.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 1990 Ford F-150

Today on this 1990 Ford F-150 we are going to install part number 14001 from Curt. One of our first steps this involves is we have to lower our spare tire a little bit to get it out of the way. Sometimes this hanger gets in the way. What you have to do is test it. We will go ahead and put the hitch up. Clamp it into position. Mark our holes, and drill out the holes in the frame. Clamping this up into position can be a little bit of a bear so it is a good idea to have an extra set of hands involved. And you see here we have got our hitch here clamped into position. What we will do next is block our holes where it is going to be drilled. We are going to be drilling here, here, and here. We will start off with the pilot hole about a 1/ 4 inch the way up to a 1/ 2 inch. We have got our holes drilled out on the passenger side here.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2000 Ford F-150

Today we are going to be installing Hidden Hitch part number 87183 on a 2000 Ford F-150. This installation will also apply to Draw-Tite part number 75065. We are underneath the vehicle. We are going to go ahead and point out the mounting locations for the trailer hitch. We are looking at the driver side frame rail. You can see the wires for the existing 4-pole are in the way here so we want to make sure that when we put the hitch up, we pull those up and out of the way. Right above those wires would be the two existing holes here at the end of the frame rail. Those will provide the two rear most attaching points for the trailer hitch. And then we are going to be using first the two holes here forward on the frame rail that will provide a third attaching point.



United Welding Services Crossover Toolbox Review

Today we are going to cover part number UWS00109. This is from United Welding Services. This is their Crossover Toolbox - all-aluminum, heavy-gauge material. As you can see, it has diamond plate. Next, we will show you how this box gets installed. There are two adhesive-backed, foam strips that go underneath the crossover part, between the bed and the crossover box. And you want to do this for the other side.



TruXedo Deuce Tonneau Cover Review

Today we are going to install part number TX777601 from TruXedo. This is their Deuce Tonneau Cover. First we will show you how it installs. Some tonneau covers actually sit on top of the rails. In this case, it is actually going to sit on the inside edge of the rail itself. We will start off by installing the rails first. It is kind of a good idea to have an extra set of hands here. What you want to do is mount it up against the side of the rail and push this little seal here against the tailgate just a little bit. When you have got it into the position you want, go ahead and take the clamps and install it onto one side of the rail and on the inside of the bed rail. What you are aiming for here is to actually have this as level as possible. All right, next what we will do is install the rails that actually support this while it is in use. We will just fold this out of our way, and the rail will get installed like this. Try to get it as even as possible with the other rail and then clamp it in place just like the first one.



TruXedo TruXport Tonneau Cover Review

Today we are going to install a tonneau cover on our 2009 Ford F-150. We will use a tonneau cover from TruXedo. And it is going to be our TruXport tonneau cover, and its part number is going to be 298101. To begin our install, we have to install a couple of seals that go on the very corners of the rails themselves. It is a stick-on affair, so it is pretty easy to do. All right, next we will go ahead and take the tonneau cover itself and the front rail and go ahead and put that onto the truck. That can be simply right up front for now.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2009 Ford F150

Today we are going to install a Prodigy Brake Controller, part number 90185 on our 2009 Ford F-150, and we are going to use the accompanying brake control adapter and show you how it gets installed. This is a little bit different from previous models. The plug for the brake controller is actually behind this tray right here. What happens is, this panel comes off, and then we get behind the tray - unscrew the tray - and the connection is right behind it. All right, what we are going to do first is go ahead and just take off this panel right here. And it is actually pretty easy. Just give a gentle pull on the bottom and just work your way up. And start on the right-hand side, so that way you can pull it out from underneath this piece here. When you do pull on this, this little panel here will come back toward you, too, and give you a little bit of extra room to pull it out.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 1994 Ford F150

Today we are going to install part number 118316 from Tow Ready, and this is a T-1 connector we are going to install on a 1994 Ford pickup. This is the point in the harness that we need to split apart and attach our T connector. It is right behind the bumper on the drivers side. There is a little button you push down. It is kind of hard to see on the end. You push it down and it comes apart. And you just reinstall the T connector in the middle of it and then make sure you clip it back together. And it might be a good idea to go ahead and use a zip tie to tie it off somewhere, and that is pretty much all there is to it. Just route your 4-pole wire where you want it along the frame and out by the hitch. Just zip tie it to secure it to the frame and keep it from bouncing around. Then we can route our wire out to the hitch. We will just put it by the chain loop here.



Trailer HItch Installation - 1994 Ford F150

All right, today we are going to install part number 75038 on a 1994 Ford F-150 pickup truck. All right, the hitch gets mounted to the frame right here. There is actually a dent in the hitch where it mounts against this rivet right here. And it mounts onto the frame about this far back. And you do have to drill all the holes out in the frame. So the best way to do it is to clamp it up to the frame and then use the hitch as a template and drill out all the holes. All right, one other thing you want to do before you install is lower the spare tire as far as possible to give you some working room to get up in there.



Front Mount Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Ford F150

Today we are going to install part number 65043 from Draw Tite and we are going to install this on a 2006 Ford F150. This will be a front mounted hitch. Our hitch will install on the inside of the frame. It will use existing holes that are in here. The holes that will be used in the frame will be the square hole here and this round hole up here, that is sometimes covered by this balance right here. We can start by actually holding up the hitch into position. This is a good one to have an extra set of hands for. It goes on the inside of the frame and there are 2 notches on there to keep it a little bit higher or a little bit lower depending on clearance with your bumper. It is a good idea to install your hitch as close as possible then install your hardware. In this case we have the hitch install in the lowest position. That should give you an idea of what kind of clearance you can expect. Once you have your bolts installed you can go ahead and install your hardware. You still want to leave it loose because you might have to move your hitch back and forth for the rest of the hardware.



Bully Truck Bed Swing Out Step Review

We are going to install this and the first step is to install the long bolt and its plate and put this into the beds cross member. Next we need to install this top slider bar, this will go in here like so, and this jack bolt has to go up flat against this body panel here just to give it some extra stability. This part is going to get sandwiched by the triangular bracket as such like this. With that we can take the nut and bolt and put it on right here. We are going to leave all this loose now because I have the bottom part, the actual step, to installed next. This will actually slide up into this side of the triangle bracket and a bolt will go through it to tighten it down. Just a quick test fit just to hold it up there to mock it up you can tell that this is right underneath the fender panel here and it should be a good deal. So we actually pushed it all the way up and it looks pretty good so we are going to leave it like it is.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2004 Ford F150

If you are throwing around the idea of installing a brake controller or needed one yesterday this video will show you step by step what is required. Many trucks come with a factory provided brake control wiring harness which is usually tucked into the glove compartment. On this video we will demonstrate how to install the Tekonsha Prodigy brake controller using this OEM harness. Since this truck has the tow package the only hardwiring required is between the factory harness and the controller. If you want to eliminate all hardwiring and make installation even faster you can opt to purchase the Tekonsha custom wiring harness if one is available for your vehicle.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2004 Ford F150

Before we start the installation you want to be sure to lower the spare tire which allows more clearance when you put the hitch on. The attaching points are going to be located on the outside of the frame, the rearmost is going to be this hole here. There are also two forward attaching points here and here. Were going to go ahead and mount the hitch in place. Using the bolt leader provided were going to feed it through the hole and out the larger hole forward on the frame. You put the block on first, then thread the bolt onto the bolt leader and pull it through the frame. Were going to do the same for the other hole as well. Once youve completed the drivers side, do the same on the passengers side. Once we have all the bolts in place we can torque them down to 75 foot pounds. Once weve finished torquing on one side, repeat on the other. This concludes the installation of part # 87195 on a 2004 Ford F150.
