2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty Questions and Answers


  • TorkLift Camper Tie-Down Options For 2008 Ford F-450
  • I spoke with my contact at TorkLift and they told me that The TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs, part # TLF2011, and # TLF3004, will fit your 2008 Ford F-450 if it has an 8 ft bed. The installation does not require drilling. We do not have a solution for the shorter bed on the F-450. If your Ford F-450 is a Cab and Chassis model with no running boards, you will want part # TLF2008 and part # TLR3500. If you have an aftermarket hitch installed, you will have to drill 4 holes in th

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Install Kit for a 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty and 19k 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Given the weight of your 5th wheel trailer at 19k I recommend going with a hitch rated for 22k, # RP30033. This hitch has a secure double jaw design and 4-way pivoting head. A 20k hitch like # RP30081 has the potential of being overloaded so going slightly higher is a safer option. The 22k hitch also includes an in-bed trailer wiring harness. For an installation kit there are 2 custom options available. First we have kit # RP56005-53. This kit has longer rails and brackets that mount to the o

  • Can the Anderson Ultimate Fifth Wheel Adapter Be Used with a Trail Air Pin Box
  • I have checked with my contacts at Andersen, and the Andersen Ultimate Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Connection Adapter is compatible with the traditional trail-air pin boxes. My contact further explained that due this adapter is not compatible with Trail-Air's Rota-Flex pin box. This is due to the forward and rearward movement in this pin box. If you have a traditional trail-air pin box that then this adapter will work great for you.

  • Can a Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch be Used on a 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty with 8 Foot Bed
  • You can use a slider even on an 8 foot bed. You would use # RP30048 that you have referenced. When slid back it will give you an additional 10 inches of clearance. You will just need to remove the head and cross member from your existing fixed 5th wheel hitch and bolt it to the slider base. I have included a link to the instructions for you.

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with a 2008 Ford F-450 with a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • If your 2008 Ford F-450 has a regular pickup bed then you can use an adapter like the Anderson Ultimate connection # AM3225. The bottom of it fits around the gooseneck ball and the top has an adapter that fits around the trailer king pin. You do not have to modify the trailer at all. I have linked a video review of the adapter for you. There is also a product called the Goose Box. There are a few different ones that fit different make and model pin boxes. If you have a Lippert 0719, 1621 and

  • Rear Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty Dually
  • In terms of air springs that are rated higher than # F2446, we do not carry a set rated higher for a 2008 Ford F-450. However, if you do not need to level the bed side to side often, which is one benefit of air springs, I would go with a Timbren system instead. Take a look at the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System, # TFRSDP. It is rated for up to 12,000 pounds which is more than twice the capacity of the air springs. The Timbren system is also low maintenance. You will not have to ad

  • Difference Between Curt 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kits for a 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty
  • There are actually 2 possible Curt 5th wheel installation kits that will fit your 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty. The only difference between them is the finish. The Carbide finish on the installation kit you have reference, # C16448-204, is more of a matte (not shiny) finish. The other option is the Glossy finish, # C16448-104. As the name suggests it is shiny. Both of these kits are compatible with the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # C16245. This hitch has the more matte finish so if you w

  • I went to the warehouse to pull a Replacement Fifth Wheel Bumper Installation Kit, # 58089, to take some measurements. I have included a picture showing the measurements I took. The diameter of the bumpers at the bottom is 1 inch. They are bullet shaped so they are more narrow at the top as you can see in the pictures. The overall height is between 15/16 inches and 1 inch.

  • In order to determine if the Pro Series 25K Gooseneck Plate, # 49080, will fit your 5th wheel rails, you will need to take some measurements. This plate fits in Reese rails. Reese rails have 3 sets of mounting holes on the tops of each rail. This plate would use the slots that are the closest to together at 10 inches apart on center and 21-13/16 inches on center front to back.

  • Can 18K Reese Signature Hitch be Replaced With 24K Reese Signature Hitch on 2008 Ford F-450

The new Reese hitch is the Reese Elite Series 25K Hitch, part # RP30143. It is rated for a gross towing weight capacity of 25,000 lbs. It also shows to use the Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit, part # RP30073, on your 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty.

  • Firestone Ride-Rite Air Bag Suspension for a 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty King Ranch
  • For your 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty, you can use the Firestone Ride-Rite System, # F2446, that you have referenced. The recommended single function compressor is # F2097. The single function indicates that it has one gauge and both air bags are inflated/deflated together. Based on your application, the single function would work well. The compressors we carry are only rated for and tested with Ride-Rite systems, so I cannot say if they can be used for blowing out tractor radiators. The larges

  • Is it Recommended to Shorten the Length of the Titan Hitch Extension for 2-1/2 inch Trailer Hitches
  • Cutting the back of the Titan Hitch Box Extension for 2-1/2 inch Trailer Hitches, item # RP45018, off is not a concern as long as you leave at least 6 inches behind the center of the hitch pin hole, and you do not excessively heat the extension when cutting it off. Any other modification like drilling, grinding or cutting should be avoided.

  • There is a specific wiring harness for your 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty that is a better fit than the 20023 wiring harness. You will need Draw-Tite Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck Wiring Harness # 20110. For this harness, your vehicle will have to have a factory tow package, which you have indicated that your truck does. The harness plugs in between the the OEM wiring harness and the factory 7-Way connector. You will still be able to use the factory 7-Way with this harness installed. I have included

However, installation kit 30073 is only rated for 18,000 pounds. The 24k hitch can handle 24,000 pounds but in order to achieve that capacity, the hitch will have to be custom installed by a qualified technician. Kit 30073 will not fit Cab and Chassis models. If you have a Cab and Chassis F-450 with 34 inch wide frame rails,

  • If you have the Class 5 hitch on your F-450 and the inside measurement of your hitch opening is 2-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches, then this ball mount will work in your truck's receiver hitch. The hitch ball you selected has the proper 1-1/4 inch size shank to fit the RP45323 ball mount. If you have a 2 by 2 inch receiver then you could use ball mount DTBM5400 (see link below), up to 14,000 pounds and the same ball for your towing needs.
