2018 Ford F-150

The rear tie-downs have functioned very well, and were generally easy to install. The corresponding front tie-downs were not so easy. They did not fit exactly, probably due to the fact that my F-150 had a heavy duty suspension and extra load capacity, so the alignment of holes was not perfect. I had to do some modification that was a challenge, but I succeeded (I think!). The system has functioned just fine for a couple of trips. 711766

Torklift tiedowns work great. I was worried about installing them myself but was able to do it. It was a little tricky but not too bad. Highly recommend. Installed on a 2016 Ford F-150. 499793

These front tie downs bolt on easy and hold solid like you need. Low profile appearance - don't stand out when not using and inserts removed. Great product - love mine! I bought both the front and rear. You won't be disappointed. 397839

Review from a similar Frame-Mounted Front in Camper Tie-Downs


Installation took roughly 1.5hrs, with drivers' side being more of a challenge. Couldn't have taken the 2 factory bed bolts out without an pneumatic impact wrench (and 18mm socket) and a needle nosed vice-grip was key in holding the front welded nut bar while treading the bolt into it. Also, note the driver' and passenger's are slightly different in angles (the instructions could be better to identify which is which, or at least each one marked as such). Looks good and solid! Very happy with the product design and the overall instructions. The corresponding D3109 (rear tie-downs) were very simple installation (~1hr), however the pneumatic impact was definitely needed to take out the 6 factory bolts. 642389

The tie down continues to work out great for our camper.

Product works great, takes a little time to install in closed channel frame but not bad. I would recommend product and Etrailer. 561950

Review from a similar Frame-Mounted Front in Camper Tie-Downs


Directions to install were very good. Had to drill a 7/16" hole through 1/4" steel on each side of the leaf spring hanger bracket (no fun at all). Driver side install has perfect alignment. Passenger side would not align horizontal to ground like driver side. Emailed customer service and they responded quickly and effectively. They provided and alternative which made the alignment better but not as good as the driver side. Still functional. Not very happy with the finish. The paint (powder coat) was the worst and kept peeling off everywhere. A spray-can of Rustoleum made it all good! 716909

Review from a similar Frame-Mounted Front in Camper Tie-Downs


Jason was great to work with on getting the proper camper tie downs for my truck as it was a new truck and was a bit confused as to the proper application. I had them installed within an hour. Even an armature bolt twister could do this! I have used my camper a lot since putting these on my truck and will tell you these are THE MOST SECURE ANCHORS I have ever used on any of my trucks PERIOD! You will not make a bad decision going with this product. I recommend these tie downs over any product available! I Don't normally give recommendations or endorse products. These I am truly impressed with. 802311

Review from a similar Frame-Mounted Front in Camper Tie-Downs


Etrailer delivery was great. The torklift product F2011 on my 2010 F250 went along very easy, for a mildly experienced homeowner. One issue on the product. The 5/8 Hook Brackets that attach the device to the frame. I needed to use a metal file at a weld point so the 1/2 inch bolt would pass through. Torklift quality control really should have caught this issue. No big deal to correct with a metal file. May have held me up 5 minutes. Another issue with the product I found several pinpoint areas on the standard bent inserts that if left would break the skin. A tap with a wrench which was handy knocked them down. Just a finish issue. Looking forward to my Truck Camper in a couple of months when my custom built will be complete. On the bright side of the Torklift F2011 it went on with none of the problems seen on youtube. No fishing for bolts. Maybe it is just the 2010 Ford F250 build that fit well but made all the difference. 335994

Review from a similar Frame-Mounted Front in Camper Tie-Downs


I have a 2018 model F450 so was a little hesitant due to the year not coming up as an option. The fit was fine with perfect alignment, though, and the extensions worked with the open backed factory running boards. I assume the finish was fine at the factory but there was some scuffing on the parts by the time they got to my door. The work around for getting the bolts situated in a boxed frame was a bit of a pain. Unlike the videos where the tech walks up to the frame on a lift, most guys will end up on their backs under the truck trying to feed little wires through at an angle from hole to hole. Hint: I used a small flex gripper to grab the "threads" and pulled the puller. It was a little stiffer and more manageable. Ever think of a heavy duty winged bolt similar to those used for drywall? That would make the installation much easier. 506254

Review from a similar Frame-Mounted Front in Camper Tie-Downs


I've had these installed about a year now. Have been on trips from Missouri to California and back and another trip to Wyoming/Colorado.New Mexico and back. Tie downs worked as expected. The installation isn't too bad, having someone to help makes the installation easier. The one thing that could be better is that you have to fish bolts thru the frame to install these -- that wasn't too bad but I'm not sure how you would ever get them back out to move to another vehicle. I trade pickups every few years and would want to move them from one to the other. I guess I'll cross that bridge when the time comes. 633577


Comments
Ok its been another year. The tiedowns are still working great. I did sell 2018 F250 and managed to fish the bolts back thru the frame. A couple of them I had to cut a slot into the end of the bolt to hold it with a screw driver while loosening the nut. It would be helpful if the threaded end had a slot or smaller head on it for a wrench. I just bought a 2020 F350 Dually that these will go back on in a few weeks.

Review from a similar Frame-Mounted Front in Camper Tie-Downs


Great product. Install was pretty easy. The only snag was trying to tighten the nut on the bolt that you use the fish wire for on the front driver side. There's no way to hold the head of the bolt while you're tightening the nut so I used a pry bar between the frame and the receiver plate to create tension on the bolt and hold it while I tightened the nut. Also, remember to disengage your parking break before installing the front driver side so that the cable is loose. 504795

Review from a similar Frame-Mounted Front in Camper Tie-Downs


I bought the TLC2220 for a low profile pop up cabover camper which I had for another Chevy 3/4 ton truck. The prior truck utilized a different attachment but was not available for my current 2012 Chevy truck. The TLC220 offers an excellent attachment point that is made out of thick well made steel and covered with a nice black powder coating. The instructions that came with the product should be thrown away. Pictures are poor, verbiage is incomplete and large gaps in the actual application. The saving grace is the video from etrailer. This is a great video. Complete, simple with no gaps and tells you exactly what the difficulties might be. This video even called out the socket sizes. Unfortunately the mate to this; the TLC 3212 rear mounts has a poor video with again gaps in application. And... again the TLC3212 written instructions is just fireplace starter material. 814560

    I do have a truck bed camper tie-down option for a 2018 Ford F-150 but HappiJac does not offer the HappiJac Truck-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs for this vehicle.

  • Truck Bed Camper Tie-Downs for a 2016 Ford F-150 Short Bed
    The product page you were looking at is a combination page of truck bed camper tie-downs, parts # TLF2018 for the front and # TLF3007 for the rear. They fit your 2016 Ford F-150 as long as you have a 6-1/2 foot bed and you don't have a step under the truck. Together both kits weigh about 65 pounds total for shipping. So subtract a few pounds for the shipping materials but not a lot.

  • Will the Same Front Camper Tie Down Brackets Fit a 5-1/2 and 6-1/2 Foot Bed on 2016 Ford F-150
    Camper tie downs # TLF2019 are only for the 5-1/2 foot bed and # TLF2018 are only for the 6-1/2 foot bed. They cannot be used interchangeably between the different length beds on a Ford F-150. So basically, the front tie downs will be different between the different bed lengths.

    TorkLift and etrailer cannot actually recommend using only front tie downs on any slide-in camper, even if it is a very light one. Sure, you may have seen folks do this and they may have had no issues at all. But in the worst-case scenario where you have an incident and there is damage or injury to you or someone else, the absence of the rear tie-downs could make for some ugliness. I wish I could say go-for-it but I can't. The front/rear tow down set # TLF2018 and # TLF3007 that...
