All right today on this 2002 Toyota Tundra were going to install part number 18144 from Tow Ready. This is a bracket to accommodate Tow Readys 4-pole wiring harness. Now our vehicle already has a hitch installed and has a bracket already installed on it to accept this bracket. Very simple, well just bolt it in place. Then bring down a wire harness and plug it into the bracket. Then we go ahead and put our cap on to it and were already finished.
Well use a zip tie to help hold the wire in place and cut off the excess. And with that that will finish it for our install of part number 18144 from Tow Ready on our 2002 Toyota Tundra.
Today on our 20132 Toyota Tundra, we'll be test fitting the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Weight Distribution Shank for 2-inch hitches rated at 10,000 pounds, part number AMAC1. Now before we begin our test fit, we will first need to obtain a hitch height of our vehicle. This is the measurement from the ground to the inside top of the receiver tube, and we'll get a measurement of 19 inches. This measurement may vary due to hitch style, tire size or any other aftermarket accessories that will alter the hitch height of the vehicle. Now to begin our test fit in the drop position, we'll slide the shank into the opening of the receiver tube of our hitch and line up the pin holes. We'll then secure it to the Tundra with a pin and clip which is sold separately.
Today, on our 2013 Toyota Tundra, we will be test fitting the converter ball, ball mount adapter for the cushion weight distribution shank, rated at 5,000 pounds, part number BA-1. Now, before we begin our test fit, we will first need to obtain a hitch height of our vehicle, which is the measurement from the ground to the inside top of the receiver tube and we will get a measurement of 19 inches. This measurement may vary, due to hitch style, tire size or any other after-market accessories that will alter the hitch height of the vehicle. Now, to begin our test fit with our converter ball cushion weight distribution shank already installed on our vehicle, part number AMAC-1, we will begin our test fit by inserting the ball mount adapter onto the downward part of the distribution shank. We will then insert the pins and measure from the ground to the top of the ball platform and we will get a measurement of about 12 inches. We can also flip the weight distribution shank over into the rise position and then with the ball mount adapter attached to the weight distribution shank, we can measure from the ground to the top of the ball platform and well get a measurement of about 25 inches.
