Today, on this 2014 Ford F250 Super Duty, we're going to review and install the BMW Customer Base Rail and Installation Kit, part number BWRVK2401. Now, the BMW fifth wheel installation kit will allow you to install a fifth wheel in the back of your truck. As you can see here, we have the rails already installed in our truck. Now, this is compatible with the BMW Patriot fifth wheel. You notice on the rails we have 3 sets of slots in each rail. This will fit a variety of different 5th wheels that are out there this will also work with versions of a goose neck adapter as well. These cross rails are constructed from steel with a powder coat finish. In this case it's a nice change of pace with traditional black finish. Let's go ahead and look at the frame brackets that come with the kit.
Today on our 2013 Ford F250 Super Duty, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Air Lift Loadlifter 5000 ultimate air helper springs with internal jounce bumpers, part number AL88396. Here's what they look like once they're installed. Some of the reasons you might want these, it's going to help stabilize your load, and if you have an off center load like one side is heavier than the other, you can independently air up each bag and get your vehicle set level. With the internal jounce bumper, it's going to help improve your ride quality. When you do have your vehicle riding level, you're not going to aim your headlights into the eyes of the oncoming traffic. These are going to help level your load up to 5000 pounds. You want to keep in mind, you have to keep at least five pounds of air in the bag at all times, and the maximum is going to be 100 pounds of air pressure when you're hauling a load. With many of our customers have said that these do work well with this wheel hitches, just have to use the original hardware that came with your fifth wheel hitch, the bolt through the center there, to mount your air bags. Our vehicle about any weight in it, at the rear wheel well, the bottom of the rear wheel well, it's going to be about 40 3/4", and on the front, we're going to be right at about 40".

Now we're going to load our truck up with about 150 gallons of water here just to simulate either tongue weight on the back of the truck or a load. Now here in the rear looks like we've come down to about 38-1/4".
