Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2009 Dodge Ram 1500

Today we are going to install the Tekonsha Primus IQ brake controller on a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500. We will also be using the Tekonsha wire harness, part number 3020-P. The Primus IQ is a proportional style brake controller.

And it is covered by a limited lifetime warranty.

Firestone Work-Rite Load Assist Installation - 2009 Dodge Ram 1500

Today on this 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 we are going to install part number F8620 from Firestone. This is their Work-Rite Load Assist.

When you have the truck fully loaded, the only way it is going to stop is when it hits this bump stop and goes down to the axle. You can see we have got quite a bit of difference so if we put a load in the back of the truck or bounce up and down the road you can see how much travel this has. 00:28



WeatherTech Window Visor Installation - 2009 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500

We are going to be installing WeatherTech side window deflectors, part number WT80503. So, I am going to start by installing it here at the front, making sure that this piece is on the outside. We are going to the recessed areas and these are in channel visors. So we want the top sections, the thinned out portion, to go ahead and to sit inside the channel. And then with the front corner ed, we just actually want to go to t he rear section of the air deflector. When it is just sitting on top, it actually overlaps the door quite a bit. So what we are going to have to do is actually fold it down so that it can be ed into the channel. You can see there is quite a bit of flex in t he window visor. You want to make sure that you are not installing this in any weather that is under 50 degrees because that bending of the visor could actually crack the visor if it is not warm enough. 0:47



WeatherTech Mud Flap Installation - 2009 Dodge Ram 1500

Today on this 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 series pickup, we will be installing the WeatherTech mud flaps front and back, part number WT110024-120024. We are going to start our installation with the front mud flaps and we are going to start on the driver side. The first thing we want to do is go ahead and turn our front wheels all the way to the left to maximize the clearance between the tire and the fender well. Next we want to locate our mud flap. And on the back side you will see that they are marked L.H. for the left hand side and R.H. for the right hand side. We want the L.H. one for the driver side here. Before we get our installation started, we want to make sure that this area is nice and clean so that the grime does not build up in between our mud flap and our fender well. The mounting holes that we are going to be using for our mud flap are going to be this one here, into the existing hole here in the fender well. And we are actually going to remove this screw here from the bottom and reuse it to install the mud flap. 0:56



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2009 Dodge Ram Pickup

Today on this 2009 Dodge Ram we will be installing the Tekonsha P3 brake controller along with the wiring harness for it, part number 90195-3020P. The first thing I want to point out is the factory installed 7-pole at the rear of the vehicle and this will be the indicator of whether or not your vehicle is going to have the factory installed brake control port under the dash. The factory 7-pole we are looking for is built into the bumper. It will have the Chrysler logo built on the front. If you do not have this plug you will likely not have the port under the dash that we are going to be plugging into. Thus will have to hardwire your brake controller into the vehicle. 00:38



Fifth Wheel Hitch Kit Installation - 2009 Dodge Ram 3500 Series Mega Cab

Today on this 2009 Dodge Ram 3500 Series Mega Cab we will be installing the signature series rail kit part number 30074. The first thing we want to do in preparation to installing our cross members under the bed is to remove our spare tire and get it out of the way so we have some more working room. The cross members we are going to be installing are going to be sitting in between the two hat channels right above the exhaust and over top of the gas tank as well. On standard models you can follow the directions to fit the cross members in from underneath the bed and just manipulate them into position. However on this mega cab model the spacing is not there for us to do that so what I am going to do is loosen up the bed and slide the cross members in from the outside of the frame directly across over the top. 00:48



EGR Bug Shield Installation - 2009 Dodge Ram 2500

Today we are going to install part number 392354 from EGR. This is a chrome bug shield. We are going to install this on a 2009 Dodge 2500 Full Size Pickup. All right we will show you where it mounts up on the vehicle itself. The bug shield is going to actually go between this part of the grill and the hood. We will slide the unit in between the hood and the grill and tighten it back up. Lets go ahead and pop the hood open and loosen the screws.



Putco Window Visor Installation - 2009 Dodge Ram

Today we are going to install part number P580178 from Putco, and we are going to install this on a 2009 Dodge Ram full-size pickup. These vent visors will install in the channel with the window, and these will actually have a little bit of adhesive on them to help them stick to the inside of the channel of the door itself. The track that the vent visor fits into is right here, all the way down. And what happens is that the adhesive on the vent visor itself will actually attach to this inside edge on top up here, inside this edge right here. So before you peel the backing off the adhesive, it is a good idea to always do a test of it first. So let us put it right in the channel and just pop it into place. Then you have a good idea of where the adhesive sticks onto the weatherstripping here.

  • The E-Tracks, like # E19148, is 12 gauge steel that is 2.5mm thick.

So you would add 2.5mm to the thickness of the wood and as long as you stay within that range you know it will not be going through the trailer wall. I also recommend that you contact the trailer manufacturer to determine the capacity the walls and...
