Bully Custom Truck Front Floor Liners Review - 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty

Today on our 2008 Ford F450 Crew Cab Duly, we'll be doing a test fit of the Bully Custom Truck Floor Liners for the front in black color, part number FM-312. To begin with, we'll need to remove any existing floor liner or floor mat that may already be in the vehicle. We'll start here on the driver's side. As you can see here, there's one factory hook that helps keep the original floor liner in place. The new Bully liner has an area that is raised to go over this section. There is also a heel pad area for extra added wear, just where the pedals would be. There are nibs on the back side of the mat to help it grip the carpet and stay in place.



Fifth Wheel Wiring Harness Installation - 2008 Ford F-450

Today on this 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty, we're going to install part number 54701-003. First up, let's find a location for our connector. In this instance, we're actually going to install about right here. That way it's easy to get access to it from the tailgate section. To install it, we're going to have to drill a pilot hole first, then go back at it with a 2 inch hole saw. Now, take our wire harness and run it through the hole and let it fall out the bottom. Take our 7 pole connector and push it into place.





2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty Questions and Answers


  • Best and Safest Way to Tow a Trailer with In-Bed Camper Overhanging Back of 2008 Ford F-450
  • Using a reducer sleeve such as # BX88187 for the 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch on your 2008 Ford F-450 should not reduce the capacity of the hitch so you can use it or a similar one that fits your OEM trailer hitch. The ball mounts such as # CAB-LD4 can only be used to tow when they are in their shorter, retracted position. The longest ball mounts that will fit a 2 inch hitch are 16 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole, # 80232 or # 80233, and are only...

  • 5th Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2008 F450 Western Hauler
  • I can't recommend you modify the rails of a fifth wheel installation kit for your 2008 Ford F-450. However, this is a rail kit that has rails that are slightly shorter that is confirmed to fit your vehicle. The Reese Rail kit part # RP30035 has rails that are 41.8 inches in length. It's not much shorter than 43, but hopefully it would be enough.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes that Lock Up all the Time
  • If you aren't sure where the factory brake controller is on your 2008 Ford F450 you may not even have one. It should be just to the right of the steering wheel on the dashboard. Your trailer brakes being locked up all the time could be due to a short on the trailer wiring circuit. What it sounds like is happening is the 12 volt accessory circuit of your wiring harness is shorted out to the brake output circuit. I would inspect the inside and outside of both the connector on your truck...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a 2008 Ford F-450 Towing 2007 Keystone Springdale
  • Weight distribution is recommended when the loaded weight of the trailer is more than half of the weight of the tow vehicle. Your trailer loaded will probably weigh about what your tow vehicle weighs, if not more. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow, this figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached an FAQ on determining tongue...

  • Will an Ultra-Fab Stabilizer Jack Fit a 2012 Keystone Raptor 5th Wheel Trailer
  • For the Ultra-Fab stabilizer jack # UF39-941602 to fit your Keystone Raptor you will need to have a free, flat surface on the bottoms of the frame rails. The frame rails need to be between 66-5/8 inches and 69-5/8 inches apart measured from the outside of one to the outside of the other. This stabilizer has one motor for both legs so each side can not be raised or lowered independently. For more flexibility I recommend the Power Twin # UF39-941705 with separate motors for each leg. And...

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer Level with a 2008 Ford F-450
  • If the 2008 Ford F-450 is the pickup version with the regular bed then most every 5th wheel hitch is height adjustable. Also, most 5th wheel pin boxes are height adjustable. With these two points of height adjustability you should be able to get the trailer level without much problem. If the truck is a cab and chassis model with a flat bed on it then your adjustability is usually limited to the trailer pin box. Flat beds are typically higher so a low-profile hitch such as # RP30054...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2008 Ford F-550 Super Duty with Western Hauler Bed and Air Ride
  • Since your 2008 Ford F-550 is a medium duty truck there are no custom underbed installation kits that will fit. You would have to have a custom installation performed by a qualified fabricator. These means that one of the other kits, such as # RP30073, would have to be modified which will void the warranty. A better option is to use the Reese low-profile hitch # RP30054. This hitch will also require a custom installation but you would not have to worry about voiding any warranties because...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • We do have under seat and behind seat storage boxes in black for your 2008 Ford F-450 crew cab with the 60/40 rear bench seat. For an under seat storage unit you can use the Du-Ha Under Seat Storage Box - Black, # DU20067, and for a behind the seat storage unit you can use the Du-Ha Behind Seat Storage Box - Black, # DU20054. I confirmed with my contact at Du-Ha that both of these items will fit your truck with the 60/40 rear bench seat.

  • Mounting Tab Dimensions of Reese R20 # RP30867 Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • I am assuming you are asking about the distance apart of the mounting tabs that insert into the bed mounting rails. The side to side dimension, measured center hole to center hole is 20-1/2 inches. Front to back, center tab to center tab measures 22 inches, as you can see in the photo I edited for you. The Reese R20 is compatible with Reese, Curt, Hidden Hitch, Draw-Tite, Pro Series, Husky or Valley bed rails.

  • 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,...

I have included some links to the installation details and a link to a video that should help you with your installation.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Will the Pro Series 25K Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Plate Fit a 2008 Ford F-450
  • 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. If your 5th wheel rails match the dimensions described above, then the plate will fit. It has a capacity of...

  • Can 18K Reese Signature Hitch be Replaced With 24K Reese Signature Hitch on 2008 Ford F-450
  • Reese does not produce the Signature Series line of hitches anymore. They have been replaced with the Elite Series line of hitches. 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...

  • 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.

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...

  • 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.
