Glacier V-Bar Snow Tire Chains Review - 2016 Toyota 4Runner

Today on our 2016 Toyota 4Runner, we'll be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Glacier V-Bar Snow Tire Chains, part number PWH2828SC. Keep in mind that this is being used with tire size 245/16R20. The heavy duty snow chains have twist-link cross chains with V-Bar studs that will help give superior traction in snow and ice. The Glacier V-Bar Snow Tire Chains are made out of a durable steel construction with cam tensioners that secure your tire chain around your tire. These tire chains are designed to work with front or rear wheel drive vehicles, and come in a quantity of two. Now that we've gone over some features, we'll show you how to get these installed. I've gone ahead and laid out my chains, just to make sure there aren't any kinks or breaks in line. We also want to make sure that our cams are loose and that the hooks are facing towards the outside of the tire chain.

Toyota 4Runner Questions

  • When selecting a weight distribution system for your towing needs, there are a few choices to make. The first and most important decision is to select a system that is properly rated for the capacity your setup requires. Since you have 4800 pounds gross trailer weight, I would recommend a weight distribution system with a 10000 pound gross weight and 600 pound tongue weight like the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w Sway Control, item # RP66086, featuring dual-cam sway...

  • An LED soft light would be closer to an incandescent bulb in appearance. You would likely want the higher wattage bulb in the location where you need more or brighter light. The soft light bulbs # AR50367 for 3.6 watt and # AR50369 for 2.7 watt would be closest to the incandescent. The 2.7 probably being the best match there but I would go with the 3.6 as a personal preference for more visibility. The bright white lights, # AR50368 for 3.6 and # AR50373 for 2.7 may seem...

  • The indicator light on the controller should be green when a trailer is connected to the trailer connector at the rear of the vehicle. When the brakes are applied the light should turn red. If the black wire from the POD is not connected to constant 12 Volt power the indicator light will flicker. The Reese Pod brake controller should be connected as follows. White - Ground Black - 12 Volt Constant Power Red - Cold Side of the Brake Pedal Switch Blue - Trailer Brake feed...

  • The Taskmaster ST215/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire # TTWTRTM2157514D that you referenced will fit the 14 inch rim you have currently that has/had a 205/75R14 tire on it. It will be just slightly wider (.4 of an inch), and slightly taller (10 mm), than your current setup. I attached a review video for this tire plus a help article on trailer tires for you to check out as well.

  • I contacted our representative at Redline about the issue you are having with your trailer brakes and your 1996 Toyota 4Runner. He informed me that there should be 12 volts of power at the trailer brakes if the brake controller is putting out 12 volts. Start with your brake controller. Review the set-up instructions that came with your controller to make sure it adjusted correctly. Then, use a multimeter like part # BTMT15 to check the voltage on the blue output wire of the...

  • The Thule Vertex # TH9030XT does not feature an eye ring to run a cable lock like part # TH538XT through. In all but extreme cases, securing all four bikes together and making a wrap or two around the mast of the carrier would offer sufficient deterrence against theft. Keep in mind that the purpose of a lock is to keep honest folks honest. A determined thief will get what they want despite any precautions taken. The idea is to make the crook move on to easier pickings.

  • To combine the Curt Friction Style Sway Control System, item # 17200, with the Curt Trunnion Style Weight Distribution System, item # 17302, all you will have to do is set up the weight distribution system and then attach the small threaded ball from the friction sway control to the small, side ball hole on the weight distribution head. Then attach the plate mounted ball in the friction sway control system the the trailer frame 24 inches straight back from the center of the trailer...

  • I went out into our warehouse and pulled a Thule Fairing # TH872XT as well as a set of Thule AeroBlade Load Bars # THARB53 and found that the fairing will not install onto the Aeroblade load bars. I then contacted our rep at Thule and she informed me that there is no need for a fairing on the Aeroblade bars because they are aerodynamically designed so that they will not create any wind noise. I attached a review video for the # THARB53 for you to check out. For a complete...

  • The Bully Dog GT Gauge Tuner # BY40450 offers four power settings: stock, tow, regular fuel (85 octane) and premium fuel (91 octane). The tow setting is the ideal choice when pulling heavy loads. Your 4Runner owners manual should indicate if the engine can benefit from use of higher-octane premium fuel. If not you can check with your local dealership. Not all engines will deliver performance gains from use of high-octane fuel. Actual torque and horsepower gains from addition...

  • When choosing a weight distribution system for your Toyota 4Runner and trailer, you will want one that has a tongue weight capacity range that encompasses your trailer tongue weight, loaded and ready to tow. At a total of 4,100 pounds, your trailer tongue weight should be between 410 and 615 pounds (10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight). You should not need to add a new trailer hitch as long as your current hitch has a 2 inch receiver and it and the vehicle are rated for...

  • When a trailer weighs more than 50 percent of the tow vehicle's weight, we recommend using a weight distribution system. Also, sway control is a good idea, especially when towing with a midsize SUV. To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the towing set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow...

  • The adapter that your customer has for his 2011 Ford truck fifth wheel package will not work with the OEM fifth wheel package on the 2013 and 2014 Ram trucks. The OEM fifth wheel package on the Ram trucks have a different foot print, meaning the pucks in the truck bed are spaced further apart than the pucks on Ford trucks. If your customer chooses to go with a 2013 or 2014 Ram truck with the OEM fifth wheel package, then he will want the Reese Elite Series Rail Adapter, #...

  • I will assume you are looking for an A-frame mounted jack, because that is what pop-ups typically use, and because that is the part you referred to. The bolt hole pattern is standard, so matching up with the holes in the trailer tongue should not be a problem. You would want to choose a jack whose capacity is greater than the tongue weight of the pop-up, which is typically 10-15 percent of the fully loaded trailer weight. The Dutton-Lainson # DL22781 jack you mentioned should...

  • Your best option for a towing mirror extension would be the K-Source Universal Clip On Towing Mirror, # KS3891. These mirrors secure to the housing of your side view mirrors and provides an extra large 7-3/4 inch x 5-1/8 inch mirror. Unfortunately there are no custom fit slide-on or snap-on mirrors for the 4Runner, but this K-Source mirror is our most popular universal towing mirror and will work well for you.

  • I did lots of online research, trying to locate dimensions of an 'average' golf bag, and wasn't able to find anything. The interior of the Thule Force L Roof Top Cargo box measures 61 inches long x 32-1/2 inches wide x 14 inches tall. The box would have plenty of length to accommodate your clubs, but you'd need to measure the diameter of your bags to determine if the 14 inch height and 32-1/2 inch width would provide enough room for two sets of clubs.

  • The longest 4-way harness we offer that has all 16 gauge wire is the Wesbar Harness part # W787274 which is 14 feet long. For one that is 30 feet long that has a 16 gauge ground wire and 18 gauge signal wires you would want the part # W002230.

  • The wheel in your existing 20.5 x 8 - 10 wheel and tire combination is a 10 inch wheel with a 20.5 inch diameter and 8 inch wide tire, see link. This size is comparable to the metric size 205/65-10 trailer tire and wheel combination like the 205/65-10 Bias Trailer Tire with 10 inch White Wheel, # AM3H370. You will need to determine the trailers gross axle weight rating or the gross trailer weight of your trailer, loaded and ready to travel, to select the correct load range...

  • I do not have any specific information about Coleman pre-drilling their frames, but from the general location of the holes shown in your photo and the way the holes are configured, I would be willing to bet those holes are for a friction sway control system. Compare the hole spacing on your frame to that shown in the photo and diagram I provided. If the spacing matches up, then the holes are indeed meant to install a friction sway control unit.

  • If your trailer turn signals and brake lights work but stop working when your running lights are on the most common cause is a bad ground connection. An insufficient ground connection may allow enough current to pass through to operate the brake and turn lights, which are on intermittently, but not enough for the running lights which draw power continuously. The particular harness you are using on your 1999 Toyota 4Runner, Tow Ready # 118341, is rated for stop/turn lights...

  • To install the Tekonsha Primus IQ brake controller part # TK90160 in your 2016 Toyota 4Runner will only require you to use the install harness part # 3041-P. This adapter plugs into the 5-pin connector on your vehicle's built-in brake control wiring harness. The harness is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal.
