These are designed for highway use and have a speed rating of up to 30 mph. These are not intended for off-road application. It will work great on either the front or the rear wheels of the vehicle. Let's take a minute and get them put on the truck. As you can see we've laid them out nice and flat here. Our hooks are facing up towards us, so when we grab this side of the chain and place it over the tire those are going to remain away from our sidewall.
Today on our 2001 Ford F350 with dual rear wheels, we're going to be test fitting the Titan Chain Dual Rear Wheel Snow Tire Chains in the ladder pattern and the V bar length. The part number is TC4821. This is designed to cover both the passenger side and driver's side, so one part number will take care of an entire axle. We'll show you how to get them installed onto your vehicle. What we're going to do is place our chains on the ground with the hooks side up, got a smooth side here on the back and the hooks are exposed here on the front. We want these to be facing away from our sidewall, so that smooth side will be riding right up against our tire. We've got them all stretched out here, you want to make sure you don't have any kinks or any twists or any tangles to deal with.
Today on our 2001 Ford F350 Super Duty with dual rear wheels, we're going to be doing a test fit on the Titan Chain, dual rear wheels snow tire chains, with the ladder pattern and twisted links, part number TC4221. As you can see, we've got our chain here, we're going to show you how to get it installed on your vehicle. It comes in a nice water resistant storage bag. To install, the first step we need to do is get these laid out straight. We position this so our center chain is lined up with the middle of our dual rears. Our outer chain is on the outside and our inner chain is on the inside of our wheels. Now we just kind of go ahead and spread this out, again, making sure we don't have any kinks or any tangles. When you're driving onto your chains, you do want to be sure that the hook portion is facing down towards the ground, so when we bring our chain up and over, that will be facing out and away from our sidewall.

As you can see here, the compressor is turning on and the airbags are filling up. When you push the switch down, it releases the air and lowers the pressure in the airbags. We'll begin by setting up the air compressor before we mount it on the vehicle. We'll need to remove two little red plugs that are capping off the inlet and the outlet port. In the inlet port, we need to put a male hose barb. For the top of the compressor, we need to thread in the check valve, go ahead and tighten it down. Then we need to put the straight air fitting in which is a quick release where you just push it in and the air hose is locked into place. We're going to find a location that we can mount or compressor.

Now before we begin our installation, you'll need to remove any existing floor liner or mat that may already be in your vehicle. This particular vehicle does not have any existing floor liners or mats, so we can go ahead and begin right away with our installation. We'll start over here on the driver's side. Simply take our floor liner, slide it up into position. The liner here on the driver's side has a factory built-in hook location. That way your liner stays in place on the carpet and doesn't move around. Now with our liner in place, let's go over a few features of it.

So we'll go ahead and take the mounting bracket and set it on the vehicle. Then we can take a paint marker, mark out the area around where we can attach the bracket to the vehicle and at this particular location it is the cross member. Then we'll go ahead and remove the bracket and pre-drill the holes into the cross member. Next, I'll go ahead and take a pair of vice grips and secure the bracket over the holes that we just drilled out. Now we'll be able to go ahead and pre-drill all the way through the bracket. Now that we finished our pre-drilled hole on the driver's side, we'll go ahead and repeat the same process on the passenger's side.
Today on our 2008 Ford F250, we're going to be installing the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Spring. These are double convoluted and for the rear axle, part number is F2550. Before we install our helper springs from Firestone, we're going to get a measurement and see how this truck sits normally and unloaded. As you can see, we've got about 41 1/4" to the bottom edge of our wheel well. We'll put some weight in the back, that's going to draw that down some and we'll get another measurement. Now that we've added just a little bit of weight to the back of the truck, we're now going to see that the suspension's taken some of the load that we're now down to about 39 3/4". So, we lost about 1 1/2" of our level here in the rear. Here on our driver's side, just above our jounce, we do have the fuel lines that are going to run right through there.

Now, we'll go ahead and take the end of our wiring harness with the two plugs on it. We'll need to feed it through the hole. We'll then use the four self-tapping screws, that come with the kit, to secure the plug to the side of the bed. Next, we're going to need to move down here underneath the vehicle.

Then we'll make our way around to the driver side and do that same thing. You will want to support the weight of the tailgate.

Put that on the garage or floor, and then build it up to that measurement then you can go ahead and put it on your truck. With that out of the way, let's go ahead and put our pads on in the place. For these they may go underneath for TracRac. What I'm doing is I am actually putting on the edge of the pad right up to the edge of the rail here. We found out that on testing in that we have to scoot it back enough to get enough room for our clamps. So let's have a certain amount of space. So let's put one on each side. Let us go ahead put our first TracRac in to place. We got to passenger side sitting in the place. Well just squeeze the driver's side in just a little bit. Make sure it's square with the truck. Now and go ahead and put our clamps in the place.
