Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2002 Toyota Tundra

Today on this 2002 Toyota Tundra, were going to install the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller, part number 90885, and we are also going to use the install kit part number ETBC7. So our first step involved is to go ahead and remove the factory four pole wiring harness, and we are going to mount our 7 pole bracket to that. There are two screws we are going to remove right here, remove the bracket from the four pole as well. Were going to remove the two Phillip screws to free up the bracket from the four pole, there is one here and one on the other side. Now our 7 pole bracket just barely misses the two mounting holes on the factory bracket, so what we are going to do is actually drill these out to 3/8ths of an inch. They will get pretty thin on the side here, but it will be enough to hold everything together, it will be almost factory when we are done.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 Toyota Tundra

Today we will be installing part number 13198, a hitch from Curt. This is a 2008 Toyota Tundra. Our first step is going to be removing the angle bracket on the inside of your bumper support and underneath the rear frame of the truck. There are a total of four bolts that need to be removed. You can see our angle bracket has been removed. We had two bolts that came from the outside of the frame rail and then two bolts that went up in to the bottom of the frame rail. Now we are going to repeat these same steps on the passenger side. It is identical to the driver side. Now that we have our brackets removed on both sides, I would like to go ahead and take the opportunity to spray the threads just to flush them out a little bit. I am going to do that on both sides. Now is a good time to get a friend or a helping hand to help you hold the hitch while you put it in place. 0:55

Trailer Hitch Installation - 2010 Toyota Tundra

Today on this 2010 Toyota Tundra pickup truck, we are going to install part number 41935 from Draw-Tite. Alright, the hitch is going to mount up in the same exact place where the angle iron bracket is. So that is going to have to be removed and the hitch is going up in the same place as the existing fasteners that are already there. Further forward on the vehicle frame, these two holes that are already threaded in the frame, the hitch will use those to mount up to also. It is identical on both side. Right now we are looking at the passenger side of the vehicle. Alright, with the two bolt holes on the side of the frame it is a good idea to go ahead and spray them down a couple of times with WD-40, just to clean out some of the grit in there. Even though this is a brand new vehicle, there is sand there on the other side. So, do not ask me how it got there but there was. We will just clean them out and run a bolt in to make sure everything starts OK. On older vehicles, you will probably have to clean these out a little bit more for anything that has possibly happened in later years. We just want to make sure that the threads are good before we let the bolts in with the hitch. 1:17



Trailer Wiring Harness Adapter Installation - 2010 Toyota Tundra

Today on this 2010 Toyota Tundra pickup, we are going to install part number 37185. Also, we are going to use an install bracket, part number 118136 from Tow Ready. In this case what we are going to do is we have our factory 4-pole lose from the vehicle. Our 7 and 4-pole down to our 4-pole adapter is going to go on the end of this. Now we will take a few minutes to do some test fitting here because it is kind of close between the hitch and the bumper. So, we use our bracket. We can mount it this way or we can mount it this way. And we can mount it just like this. It does stick out kinda far. So what we can do is we can just take this bracket and flip it around. And if we are installing it backwards, it actually recesses a little bit. It sits a little tighter against the hitch and it is not the only thing that is sticking out further than the hitch itself. 1:00

We will also need to remove the nut off this side as well. To get the EPA canister off from the inside. :34

First off we have the actual tonneau cover itself, with the front rail already installed and also the back rail is installed on the back part of the tonneau cover in the inside. It is rolled up now, you can not see it. Next are the clamps that hold the tonneau cover in place. It comes with six clamps and all you need is a 1/2in socket or ratchet wrench to tighten them down. There is only one tool to install all of this. Then you have the two rails, of course the left and right side. And then the foam packing which you see in the middle there that is part of the weather seal that goes underneath the corners of the tonneau cover.



Bestop Bed Step Review

The next product we have got is what we call the Bed Step, and this is designed to solve the problem, How do I climb in the back of my truck? Currently, everybody is having to do this, or they are doing this, and they are pulling themselves up in there. It gets to be a problem. What we have here is the Bed Step: a spring-loaded step that mounts directly to the frame and the bumper and allows easy access. And now when I need to get into the back of my truck, I am up in there. And when I am done with it, simply kick it away. The big advantage to this Bed Step is the fact that it does come out at an angle, so it allows me access in and out of the truck with my tailgate up or my tailgate down. So now I can climb up into the back of the truck real quick and easy. And again, when I am done with it, why, I kick it and forget about it, go back to work and do what I have got to do.



Front Mount Trailer Hitch Installation - 2005 Toyota Tundra

Today we are going to install part number 65031 from Draw-Tite, and we are going to install this on a 2005 Toyota Tundra pickup. To begin our install, let us take a few pieces off the vehicle. First off, this tow hook right here has to come off it will stay off. This skid plate right here, that will have to come off and stay off. And then this hook over here, this loop or tie-down has to come off, also. This bolt here and here and there are two back here that come out and allow the shield to come down. Next we will install the hitch on existing weld nuts. It is a good idea to have an extra set of hands because it is kind of heavy and kind of wide. Once we have the hitch installed by the factory bolts I am sorry, with the factory holes then we use the hitch as a template to drill out the last two remaining holes. All right, what we will do from here on out is, we will go ahead and snug the bolts down, lock the hitch into position, and we will start our drilling. The hitch will mark where our holes are going to be drilled at. Again, we will use it for a template. We will start off with a 1/4-inch drill bit to make a pilot hole, and then we will follow it up with a 1/2-inch bit. And this is the other one right here.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2007 Toyota Tundra

We will also be using part number 3040-p from Tekonsha which lets you plug into the factory tow package in the vehicle. We begin our install by finding a spot to mount our bracket onto. Just go ahead and put it up there and see if you like it as a nice place to put a brake controller. It should give you a pretty good idea of how it fits. Makes sure you can access the thumb wheel on top. Seeing the LED screen is equally important. Now that you know it is in the correct position you can go ahead and mark the holes before you drill them. Now we will go ahead and drill out our holes after we have marked them.
