In our case we're using Firestone Ride Rite Air Helper Springs, part number F2582 that has previously been installed on our F-150. So, with our Firestone One Air Compressor System installed, as you can see we've got a nice display here with an easy to use switch.

Today on our 2013 Ford F-150, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the DeeZee Nerf Bars 3" Round Polished Stainless Steel, part number DZ372293. It's going to make getting in and out of your vehicle a lot easier. You're just going to step up on there and get into your vehicle. We even have a nice step tread for our rear passengers. Step on that, and they can hop right back up into the vehicle. If you need to put something on the rear, you can just climb in. You can see how they have this nice high-polished stainless steel finish, it going to protect against rust and corrosion and keep you looking nice for years to come. Now let's go ahead and show you how to get them installed.
Today on our 2012 Ford F150, we're going to be taking a look at the Weather Tech Front Auto Floor Mat single piece in black, part number WT442951. This is also available in tan, part number WT452951 and in grey, part number WT462951. You can see in our Ford, right now, we have our factory mats in place. It's not going to give you a lot of coverage up under your dash or your pedals or along our transmission hump here which is just open carpet. Across the front of our seats or covering our seal plate. We're going to go ahead and remove our factory mats. We'll take out both sides.
Today on this 2012 Ford F-150 we're going to be test-fitting the B & W Tow & Stow, 3-ball ball mount for 2" hitches with a 7" drop and a 7-1/2" rise, rated for 10,000 pounds, part number BWTS10049B. We already have this installed on our vehicle, and the first thing I'd like to point out is this pin and clip that we have attached to the 2" hitch with, does not come with the ball mount. You can find it on our website though, it's part number PC3. Obviously, one of the advantages to this product is the fact that we can use three different ball mounts to accommodate different loads and different trailers that you may have. To do this, you can switch it out by pulling the pin and clip here. Right now we have it in the 2" ball position. Pull the pin and clip, you simply rotate it, and at this point we'll be at the 1-7/8" ball.

Now this can be adjusted for various heights to match up with either your camper shelf or your roof rack on your truck, and you can use this to help inaudible 00:00:22 lumber loads, PVC pipe, or as in this case, roof accessories such as kayak carriers. To tie those down there's going to be two loops up at the top on either side and you can use a wide variety of straps to do so. With it in this position, I'm going to go ahead and give you some measurements now.

All right, to start let's go ahead and get some ride measurements here under the right height with the truck in the stock configuration with no actual weight in the bed. On the front in the center line of the wheel going straight up to top of the wheel arch here we're looking at about 37 1/2 inches. On the back, once again following the center line of the wheel up to the top of the wheel arch we're looking about 39 1/2 inches. Now with those measurements let's go ahead and get some weight in the back of the truck bed. Let's go ahead and get some measurements here to show the difference between the stock suspension with nothing in it and the stock suspension with a heavy load.

They're also available in tan, part number WT452951 and in grey, part number WT462951. As you can see our vehicle without our WeatherTech floor mat, it's not going to cover your center transmission hump here, and your factory floor mat is only going to cover this small area. It doesn't go up underneath your pedals and its not going to cover your sill to help keep the dirt and debris off of your carpeting. We can go ahead and put it on the floor mat, kind of have to twist it into place so it goes underneath our seat in the front here. Then we'll tuck that underneath out pedals. Now we'll snap it onto our factory floor mat clips, slide it up and snap it down. Now you can see for comparison with our factory mat, that fit in this small area here, that our WeatherTech is going to go over the sill, up around the bottom side of our kick panels, behind the pedals, and it's going to cover all across the front of the dash, it's going to tuck up underneath our center counsel and high up on the side of our carpeting to help keep all the dirt and debris off of our carpet.
