Today in this 2006 Ford F150 with an eight-foot bed were going to add cantilever over the cab extension part number TA44000-02. Well be adding this to our tack rack kit TA21000-02. In order to add our cantilever kit we need to replace the sidles on our existing rack. What well do is go ahead and remove the bolt for the cross bar and then remove the bolt for the sidle unit. Then repeat the same process on the passenger side. Now we got our tension points loosen up.
Well go ahead and remove the end cap between the cross member off. The cross member aside for the installation later when go ahead disassemble the two passengers that hold on the current sidle. With the old cellar unit off, we'll go ahead and install the new one. For reinstalling the new hardware it's just like the old one. Were going to go ahead and tighten it down.
With our sadle tightened down were going toward specification as indicated in the instruction. For the upright complete on the driver side will be the same process with the upright on the passenger side. Now and go ahead and pre-thread caps screws on the square nut, and itll sit on the sadle unit just like this and except the cross member as we slide it in. will do that for all four sections on the sadle unit driver and passenger side. Now we are ready to go ahead slide the cross member unit back on the new sadles.
Now we are go ahead and remove the other end cap opposite the one we removed earlier. Now we need the center of the cross bar on the new sadles well take a measurement end of this sadle to the end of the cross bar on each side to get the center up. Then will go ahead and tighten down the passengers on the top side of the sadle to the cross bar. Now go ahead and reinstall the end caps on both side with flat sign of the end cap inside down toward the surface that were tighten it too so the flat side goes down. I repeat this process on the other side also.
Next we need the bolt on cantilever to the bracket. The cantilever is side specifics you may want to do a test fit on your vehicle to make sure have it on your right side. The other holes in the bracket will accept the passenger. Let's go ahead and get all started and we'll tighten them down. With all of them start, were ready to go ahead and tighten down our passengers.Tightening down must be done in the specific pattern see your instruction for details. The method of tightening on this passenger down is referred to as the star method it's similar to way you tighten down the log knots on your wheel. Now were ready to go ahead and repeat the same process for the right side. Now we are going to install cantilever on the sadle unit. Now that we have our fasteners installed, we're going to tighten them down. All right now we re-install the cross member. Weve already threaded the square knots on the capped screws and I got the second set on my hand on the other side help me set it up on the cantilever. Once we get on the cabinet and the square lock knots in place were going to tighten them down. Now ready to go ahead and install the end cap on a cantilever. For the easy install were going to go ahead and slide the front rack back to tighten down the cross bar passenger and end caps. The same process in installing the end caps as we get on their overhead rack system earlier. All right, now repeat the same process on the passenger side. Now we are going to install the forward cross brace and thread on a square headed knot. Then go to the center slot of the cross brace and pull it into position. Now we can take our 916th bolt and slide it up in the cantilever and install another flat wire Sherlock knot. Now we go ahead and tighten them all down. With the drivers slide down Im going to go ahead repeat the same process in the passenger side. The bolt end caps installed that completes the install of our track rack cantilever on 2006 Ford F150 with the six-foot bed.
Today on our 2012 Ford F-150, we're going to install the Thule Xsporter Truck Bed Rack, part number TH422XT. First, we're going to need our four upright supports and our upright rails, and we're going to assemble them together. We'll insert our upright rails into the upright support and line up the slots. Once you have the slot lined up, you can close the cam handle, securing the upright rail into the support. We'll assemble all four of the upright rail assemblies. The next thing we need to do is clean up our bed rails.
Today on this 2005 Ford F150 Long Bed, were going to be installing the Dewalt Industrial Grade Steel Truck Rack, part number DIGFFR360. Before we actually get started installing the truck rack system, we need to do a little bit of pre-assembly. And the first thing we need to do is just to figure out which side rail setup we need for our particular truck, so you want to go ahead and measure the length of the bed first and per the instructions, you determine the setup that you need for the side mounting rails. Now, the particular setup were using today is a long bed and its a 99-inch bed, so were going to need not only the long base rail, but two of the short base rails as well which when installed, this is going to look something like this. We can go ahead and start aligning the long base rail and what we want to do is go ahead and center it on the side rail of the truck not only front to back but side to side as well. Go ahead and do that for the passenger's side rail as well.
Today were working on a 2006 Ford F150 with an eight foot bed. Were going to install the TracRac overhead rack system, part number TA21000-02. For installation, well first need to install our base rail kit. The base rails stand up on the edge of the bed rails. They are side, front to back specific so you need to make sure you identify the correct base rail for the driver and passenger side. Once weve done that well need to mark the holes that will be our mounting points.
