Then we took off the tire on the side we are going to work on. You do not have to do that, we are doing it to make the instructions a little more clear. One thing you need to do is raise the frame off the suspension so you have plenty of room to work. :28



Fifth Wheel Hitch Installation - 2002 Ford F-250

Today on this 2002 Ford F-250 we are going to install part number RP30035 from Reese. For the first part of the install we need to locate the rear base rail for the fifth wheel hitch. Our measurement is going to start at the very end of the bed itself, not the tailgate, the end and we are going to measure up as described in the instructions. And then we will go ahead and make our mark. We will do that on both sides so we can make our rails even. :25



Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck Wiring Harness Installation - 2002 Ford F-250

Today on this 2002 Ford F-250 we are going to install part number 20110 from Tow Ready. This is Tow Readys fifth wheel or gooseneck 7 way tow harness. Basically what this does is act as an extension of your factory 7 way that is at the bumper of the vehicle, gets routed up underneath the vehicle to the side of the bed of the truck. This part is the 7-pole itself, it gets installed on the side of the bed. We are going to start off by making our hole in the side of the bed. :24



Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Today we are going to be working on this 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty and we are going to be showing you how to install part number 9460-48 from Draw-Tite. As you can see we have already removed the spare tire just to get it out of the way because we are going to need to access up underneath here. Next we are going to have to remove the heat shield. We are going to take off the bolts located here and here. There should be two at the top of the frame as well. Now we are going to remove our exhaust bracket at this location here. If you can see, there is an exhaust bracket back here towards the front of the vehicle we are going have to remove that one too by removing the two bolts that are holding up the exhaust bracket from the cross member. 00:45



Fifth Wheel Hitch Kit Installation - 2000 Ford F-350 Pickup

Today on this 2000 Ford F-350 pickup we are going to install part number RP50082-58 from Reese. Also our 22K Reese fifth wheel hitch part number 30033. The first step involves removing the spare tire and take it down temporarily so you have some access to work underneath the vehicle to tighten up the nuts and bolts. The second thing we want to do is go to the driver side of the vehicle and disconnect the the hanger that holds the parking brake cable. That will get reattached to the frame bracket when we install that. This is the back side of the nut that we just took off of the bolt so we will just pull that out of our way. What is going to happen is this is going to get sandwiched between the bracket and the actual frame of the vehicle when we reinstall it. The next thing we are going to do is go to the bed of the truck and we will put the first rail in and mark its location. As you can see here we have got the first rail in the bed of the pickup and what you need to do is measure from the edge that we see facing us towards the edge of the bed itself. Then we want to make sure we have the rail even left to right. 01:06



Putco Window Visor Installation - 2003 Ford F-250

Alright, today we are going to review part number P580203 from Putco. This is their Element tinted polycarbonate window visor. A couple of features about the window visor is that it has a simple, in-channel installation, so it fits in the same channel as the window itself. It has a moisture-wicking, beaded edge that helps you remove moisture from the visor. It is a precise fit for the vehicle so it is designed for the actual door itself. And also the shape of it reduces wind noise. 0:28



Air Helper Springs Installation - 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Today on this 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty we will be installing the Firestone air spring system part number F2330. The first thing we want to do is locate the jounce bumpers located directly above the axle near the springs on each side of the vehicle. These need to be removed from both sides of the vehicle so that is what we want to do first. With the jounce bumper removed you can see the collar that is in here. This collar we are going to reuse. If yours does happen to fall out when you are removing the jounce bumper you want to make sure you hold on to that. With the jounce bumper removed over on the driver side we need to clear out the wiring lines that are in the way because we want to make sure we do not pinch those when we install that upper bracket. We also need to remove this upper bolt that is holding the brake line on the outside of the frame, that is also interfering with our bracket. 00:48



MagnaFlow Exhaust Installation - 2007 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Today on this 2007 Ford F-250 Super Duty we will be installing MagnaFlow performance exhaust part number MF16926. You need to do a couple of things in preparation before we get started installing our exhaust system. First we want to disconnect the vehicles battery. This will allow the computer to reset itself once we get the new system in place and that will help prevent electrical accidents. If your vehicle has four wheel drive we also need to go ahead and remove the transfer case rock shield. There are four bolts holding it on two per side. We will just set that off to the side for the time being. We also need to go ahead and remove the lower bolt from the rear passenger side shock. Again this will allow us to swing the shock out of the way to help make the removal of the system easier. 00:54



Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Today, on this 2006 Ford F-250 Diesel, we will be installing Hide-a-Goose part number 9460-48. The first thing we want to do in preparation of installing our gooseneck assembly is go ahead and lower your exhaust down. Depending on your model year, this being a 2006, we just need to remove the rear most hanger here, but I actually want to take the whole bracket down off of the frame rail because we are going to be installing a new bracket piece to help lower the exhaust once the gooseneck is installed. There is just one bolt to the side of the frame we just want to set that off to the side because we will be reusing that bolt and flange nut assembly there. Now that we have the exhaust lowered, we can go ahead and slide our cross members into place. You do want to note that the two cross members that come with the installation kit are different. The front cross member has two extra holes here in the middle whereas the rear one does not. So, before we slide those into place we do want to install our carriage bolts into position because once we rails in place we will not be able to get the carriage bolts into place. We are going to be using 5/8 carriage bolts in these positions here. 1:05



Bestop BestRail Sliding Ladder Rack Installation

Today, on this 2004 F-250 Super Duty, we will be installing the Bestop Bestrail overhead rack part number B42730-791. We are going to start by assembling the components of the overhead rack system. The first thing we are going to assemble is the legs to the front bracket both left and right. We are going to start with the front left bracket first. We are going to take one of the legs and you can see we have four existing holes here in the left bracket. You want to take one of the legs and you will notice that one end has a flat edge to it, the other end is actually angled. We want the angled side to be down here attaching to the bracket and we want the lower edge in towards the bottom of the bracket here where it will flare up towards the inside of the truck bed here. What we want to do is just align the holes here in the leg with the holes in the bracket. Over here on the side holes we are going to be using the 1/4-20 by 3 1/4 inch flat head screws along with a flat washer and nut. On the inboard side holes, we are going to be using the 1/4-20 by 2 ΒΌ inch screws along with a flat washer and nut. And we want to repeat that procedure for the front right bracket as well. 1:38



Fifth Wheel Hitch Installation - 2005 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Today on this 2005 Ford F-350 Super Duty we are going to install part number 30847-30073 from Reese. There are two ways to get the rails underneath the bed of the truck. What we are going to do is in this case we are going to actually loosen the bed bolts up and pushing that up we will have access. If you can not get the bolts loose then the next best thing you can do is put two cuts into the sheet metal underneath the bed and pry it up out of the way so you can slide the rails in. If we were to cut the bed what we would do is just make a notch here and a notch here and then we just take some vise- grips or some pliers and just pull the sheet metal up and out of our way. Then we can slide the cross member in. Okay we put some spacers between the frame and the bed of the truck just to give us a little extra working room. 00:47



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2000 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Today on this 2000 Ford F-350 Super Duty we are going to install part number V82500 from Valley. I will go ahead and show you where the hitch mounts up on the frame of the vehicle. It is going to use these existing holes in the frame itself so you will not do any drilling what so ever. We will go ahead and install our hardware. We are going to use this block and this bolt and we are just going to it in the frame. 00:20



Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2001 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Today on this 2001 Ford F-250 Super Duty we will be installing Hide-A-Goose part number 9460-48. Before we get started we need to do a couple of things in preparation. First thing we are going to do is go ahead and lower the spare tire and get it out of our way. We also want to remove the heat shield from this section directly over the exhaust and over the axle well. And then we also need to lower the exhaust off of its rear most hanger. With those three things done we can actually go up inside the bed and start by drilling our hole in the bed. We need to check with the directions to verify the appropriate length that you need to mark and drill your hole at. On this particular long bed model we are going to be measuring from the end of the bed here. My dimension on this long bed model will be 46-3/16 inches. We just want to center that mark in between the wheel wells. 00:51



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Today on this 2008 Ford F250 Super Duty we will be installing the Prodigy brake controller and adapter plug, part number 90185-3034-P. We are inside the cab of the truck and the first thing we want to do is locate the port we are going to be plugging our adapter into. On these newer F250s they have the option of having the factory installed brake controller in the dash area. Since this does not have one, the plug is actually mounted on the back side of this knockout here. :37



Front Mount Trailer Hitch Installation - 2009 Ford F-250

Today on this 2009 F-250 we will be installing the front hitch part number 65049. We are underneath the front of the vehicle here, and we are going to go ahead and point out the mounting location for the trailer hitch. We are actually looking at the passenger side frame rail on the outboard side and we have got a couple holes visible. If you look more forward towards the bumper side you will see a 9/ 16 size hole right there. That is going to provide our forward most attaching point for our trailer hitch. I do want to note on some of the newer model vehicles with four wheel drive. It has a bigger air dam here at the front and this air dam will need to be trimmed on those four wheel drive models. If you do need to trim the air dam just go ahead and give it a test fit and maybe take some dimension and go ahead and cut it before you get started. 00:40



Rail Kit Installation - 2004 Ford F-250

All right, today on a 2004 Ford F-250 long bed, we are going to install BestRail kit part number 42730. One of the first things to do to prepare the rails is apply some camper tape to the bottom of them which is supplied with the kit. There are three rails we have to do this to. It is really simple. We will apply the tape to this edge here, over this gap, and onto this ridge right here. We will just work our way back all the way down. Repeat the same process on the other two rails. The next step is to slide three of the clamps into each one of the BestRail side rails. Using an 1/ 8 inch Allen wrench, we are going to install four of the 1/4 by 20 by 3/ 8 inch set screws in each of the corner brackets. Next we are going to go ahead and take the front BestRail and place it on the front rail of the truck bed.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Today we are going to install part number 41931 from Draw-Tite, and we are going to install this hitch on a 2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty. We are looking at the passengers side frame rail here, and the hitch is going to get attached at this hole here, here, here and here. And you can tell by the whole area that the original factory hitch was on there already so we already took that off. The hitch is going to attach to the same place as the factory hitch did. This one will be a lot heavier hitch. And it will be identical on both sides. The factory wiring we took and just tucked it out of the way for now during our install. We will go ahead and reinstall that after the hitch is done.



Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Ford F-250

Today we are going to install part numbers 9470 and 4430, a Hide-a-Goose gooseneck hitch, on a 2006 Ford F-250. We will go ahead and lower the exhaust. Now, there is a mount in front of the axle that you reach in from underneath the bed to get to it. Take out two nuts, and you can lower the exhaust that way. And then we will go to the back of this whole assembly and pull it off to the side. The next thing we need to do is to remove the bracket from the vapor tube, which is this object right here - this is your vapor tube, and this is your wire harness. What is going to happen is we are going to take this bracket and we are going to put it sideways and remount it with the provided bracket that comes in the kit. It is bolted onto the side of the frame here, so we have got to take off that nut. You can pull it out. I am just going to rotate it just like this, install our bracket, and what this does is it provides room for the bracket that fits on the outside of the frame to install the gooseneck hitch. We will take our nut-and-bolt assembly from the outside in. Next what we are going to do is take down this shield here - again, to give us some more work room to install the hitch.



Agri-Cover Vanish Roll-Up Tonneau Cover Installation - 2006 Ford Super Duty

Today we are going to install part number 91309 from Agri-Cover, and this is their Vanish low-profile roll-up tonneau cover. And we are going to install this on a 2006 Ford Super Duty long-bed pickup. Our first step involved is go ahead and, we are going to do the side rails first. What is going to happen is the rail is going to fit on the inside edge of the bed, pushed all the way to the front of the box. And you want this edge to match the top edge of your bed rail. Once you have it the way you want it, you go ahead and clamp it into place. Then we will go back with the regular, permanent clamps. Go up as far as you can on the bed. And then the other half is adjustable where it matches the teeth in the rail. Now, you want to install your clamps as evenly as possible across the rail.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2008 Ford F250 Super Duty

Today we are going to be installing brake controller part number 5500 from Draw-Tite on a 2008 Ford F250 Super Duty. Inside the cab here, the first thing you want to do is go ahead and locate the factory-installed brake control port that the Super Duty has. If your vehicle does not come with the in-dash brake controller, which is typically in this location here, the plug will actually be in a holder, mounted on the back side of this piece right here.



Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Rail Kit Installation - 2008 Ford Super Duty Pickup

Today we are going to install part numbers 9460 and 4430. This is a Hide-a-Goose install kit for a 2008 Ford Super Duty pickup. This is a diesel version with a 6-foot bed. Next we are going to create some working room beneath the vehicle. We are going to take off this heat shield temporarily, and we are going to lower our exhaust system, too. That way we will have plenty of room to work with to put the head assembly between the two rails. This is the second exhaust bracket we need to lower, too. Once you have the secondary one down you can go ahead and actually pull the exhaust down a little bit out of the way to give you some more working room. Next, go ahead and loosen up the bed on this truck. It gives us a little bit easier working space underneath the vehicle. And once we get all the components installed underneath we can set the bed back in. We are just going to loosen the bed up, put some blocks in it, and maybe raise it 1-1/2 inches or so. Next, we will go ahead and mark off the bed so we know where to drill the hole. What you want to do is find the center rib and measure back on the bed, per the instructions. On our 6-foot bed, in this particular case, it is 47-7/8 inches. So from the back edge of the bed itself you want to mark off 47-7/8 inches and then you want to center it in between the fender wells. It is kind of handy to use these edges of the bed itself. We are looking at 24-1/2 to the center. And what we will do next is go ahead and punch our mark, just enough so we can see a dimple on the bottom side of the pickup, because we will save drilling the hole for one of the last things we need to do. We just loosened the bed and we have got it propped up with these blocks right here. And on the 6-foot bed, it looks like it is a little bit tail heavy, so we have got plenty of space up in front.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 1999 Ford F250

Today we're going to install the Prodigy brake controller from Tekonsha, Part Number 90185, on a 1999 Ford F-250, the light-duty version. This will also apply to the same year Ford F-150. We're going to start off with this one vehicle that only has a factory 4-pole package on it and does not have the 7-pole in the back. So we're going to have to upgrade the 4-pole to make it a 7-pole and then we can install the brake controller up front. The first thing we do is install one of two brackets on the hitch itself so we have a place to mount our electrical connector, and basically we're going to be using Part Number 18140 from Tow-Ready. And basically this is one that clamps in place right here. Basically it's just a hose clamp that goes around the hitch and back through itself. And then you just tighten it down with a clamp set. You might want to hold the bracket in position while you tighten it down, too. Next we're going to install a bracket by a hole in the connector right here. And this comes with the Part Number 37185, and that's a 4-pole to 7- and 4-pole adapter.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2003 Ford F250

Before we begin our install we need to take down this access panel here to get to the port thats located behind the panel towards the center. Well point that out to you. Inside this cavity here you can see all the wire harnesses and what not, behind this harness is a gray port. Thats the port for the tow package we need to use. Well run it from the inside here out behind this steel here and come back around to the outside. Since this is tight quarters you can take a screw driver and force this up a bit so its facing towards you and its easier to install. Next were going to mount our bracket, were going to use a standard one like so. This vehicle had a brake controller before, so we use the existing holes. The hardware that came with this is a little small so were going to replace it with some number nine screws to take up the holes in the dash already.



Fifth Wheel Hitch Installation - 2008 Ford F250

We begin the installation of our fifth wheel trailer hitch by lowering the spare tire on our 2008 Ford 250 Super Duty. Next, we want to loosen the bed bolts to make it easier to install the rails for our fifth wheel hitch. Now we can slide the first rail over the frame and under the truck bed. With first rail in place towards the rear of the truck, we can then slide the second rail into place. Once we have the rails in place across the truck, we insert the bolts to level out the mounting brackets. After the rails are in place and bolts tightened, we retighten the bed bolts to make sure there will be no shifting. This ensures that all of the holes we are going to drill will align properly. Now we mark the holes where we need to drill through the side of the frame at the front and rear of the frame brackets. Before drilling your holes, check the inside of the frame rail on each side of the truck to make sure it is clear of any wiring or lines that run from the front to the back of the truck.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2003 Ford F250

Just to give you a reference point, this is the top, right here of the gas pedal, so basically its across up on this pillar here. While were here well plug in our brake controller adapter and that will be part # 3035-P. Now we can plug the other end of this into our brake controller after we install the mounting bracket. Next well mark our bracket for positioning, well just hold it up here on this bottom edge where its nice and flat. In this corner right here, well just make a small dot for reference and then well put our first screw there. Afterwards well put our brake controller inside and eyeball it to make sure we get it straight. When we have positioned the way we want it, we ll make our secondary screw install here. Okay at this point we can simply install our adapter cable in then well just mount right here. We have the brake controller installed now, the last thing we do is take the wires and zip tie them into a safe position and all we have to do is test.
