Today on our 2001 Ford Ranger, we'll be doing a test fit on the CIPA Universal Bar Clip-on Towing Mirror, Part Number CM11980. It offers us a wide field of view. It's going to allow us to safely and easily change lanes, pass, park, or even back up while towing a trailer. The mirror can be rotated 360 degrees and can be adjusted to any angle. By simply loosening up the nut up top here, we can extend the mirror out to further suit our towing needs. Once we've got it set, just tighten him back down. It's not going to interfere with the operation of our factory mirror, and we can even still rotate it in.

I'm here at the passenger side of my Ford Ranger and to begin our test fit let's go ahead and turn our towing mirror over and we're going to make sure that each one of our tabs here is opened up that way our housing can easily fit between there.
Here on this 2008 Ford Ranger, we'll go ahead and review and install part number 18252, the Draw Tite 4-Pole Hardwire Kit with a circuit tester. This is what it looks like when it's installed on our Ranger truck. This wire harness will allow you to replace the 4-Pole connector that's pre-existing on this truck like we did here, or you can use this on a vehicle that does not have a 4-pole wire harness at all. One of the best reasons to have this installed on your truck is is that it replaces something that's already corroded up, or in this case here, the 4-pole wire harness is actually from the factory, located behind and underneath and a little bit hard to get to. You can use this to extend it and pull it out and make it a little easier to work with and hook up to your trailer. Our part number includes the wire harness here, of course. It also comes with the quick splice connectors and a circuit tester to help identify the functions of the wires. We'll cover those next in our install. First off, this is our 4-pole flat wire harness right here, entire length of the wire is going to be 72 inches. These are our quick splice connectors.
All right, today on this 2006 Ford Ranger, we're going to review and install the Curt Class III 2 inch receiver hitch, part number 13138.

This is our 2 inch receiver opening right here, has a nice symmetrical rounded collar around the end for reinforcement. As we look back on our receiver tube right here, it uses a 5/8ths of an inch hitch pin or your favorite locking pin. Our receiver tube goes into a round stock here in the body of our hitch. You can see it will curve up and into the frame of the vehicle. All our hardware to install the hitch is provided.
Today on our 2006 Ford Ranger we're taking a look at the Thule GateMate Tailgate Pad for compact trucks. The part number for that is TH823. The first thing I'm going to do is load this up onto our truck, something to set it on to our tailgate, and because this truck is shorter we won't have to open up the tailgate all the way. We can lift up our flap here with our hook and loop straps, straighten out our strap on this side and we can feed it under between the 2 pieces, and just pull that through. We're going to loosely strap that down just so it stays in place while we fix the other 2 straps. I come over here to this side and do the same thing, pull the strap up through the crack here, now the strap, and lastly the middle, and strapping that down loosely.

You'll then squeeze in the locking tab with the locking tab squeezed in, you'll gently pull down and remove the old wiper blade. As you can see here, these wiper arms have a J-hook design, so you'll take your new wiper blade, slide it over the J-hook, and push up until you hear it click or lock into position. Once you have the new wiper blade installed, simply set it gently down onto the windshield. We can then go ahead and repeat the same process over on the other side. That'll do it for our quick look as well as our installation of the Rain-X Weatherbeater Windshield Wiper Blades in an 18-inch-long design, part number RX30218 as installed here on our 2001 Ford Ranger.
