DeeZee Tailgate Assist Custom Lowering System Installation - 2013 Ford F-150

Today in our 2013 Ford F150, well be installing the DeeZee Tailgate Assist Custom Tailgate-Lowering System for pickup trucks part number DZ43200.Lets begin by showing you how the tailgate can just simply drop when you release it. To begin with, we need to adjust the nutsert tool so that theres approximately three quarters of an inch from the washer to the head of the bolt. If you need to move it, you simply loosen the nut and screw the bolt in or out to get to the proper length and then tighten down the nut. As you can see here, weve already got our three quarter inch length set properly.Next, were going to use an M5 Allen wrench, as well as a 10-millimeter wrench to install the nutsert in the opening in the tailgate pivot point. When installing this, were going to need to turn the nut 360 degrees nine times. To make things a little bit easier, were going to take our paint marker and mark one side of the nut so that we can keep count as were turning the nut in tighter.

TruXedo Truck Bed LED Lighting System - 2006 Ford F-150

Today on our 2006 Ford F150, we'll be installing the Truxedo Tonneau Covers, B-Light battery powered truck bed lighting system, part number TX1704998. As you will see, these battery powered truck bed lighting systems run on 3 AA batteries. They adhere to whichever section of your bed you would like to put them on with double sided tape as well as the battery box where the on/off switch is, has two holes that you can also add two screws to if you choose. The screws are not supplied with the kit and you will need to come up with them separately. On this particular bed, there's a spray-in bed liner. So we're going to go ahead and use two separate screws to help mount the box to the side of the bed. Because this truck has a Tonneau cover on it and a spray-in bed liner, we're going to actually mount the lighting strip to the underside of the Tonneau cover rail. Before we do any mounting though, we're going to go ahead and undo the four Phillips heads screws.
