  • Best Trailer Hitch for a 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Unlimited
  • The best trailer hitch for your 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Unlimited is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76104 because it has a higher weight rating than the other trailer hitches available (indicating stronger materials), has a longer receiver to help accessories clear your spare tire, and features safety chain loops that remain under your rear bumper for a clean look after the installation. I have attached pictures and an installation video for you to reference. If you plan...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL
  • For your 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler (New Body Style) I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Class III Trailer Hitch # 76104 because it features the highest capacities available for your vehicle (4,500 pounds towing and 675 pounds of tongue weight) which just indicates a stronger, more durable hitch even if you don't plan on reaching its limits. It also features a longer receiver tube that will make it easier to attach accessories with the Jeep's rear-mounted spare tire. Its custom design will...

  • How to Install the Replacement Gas Lift Cylinder for UWS Toolboxes
  • To remove the current gas strut on your UWS toolbox you will simply need to take a flathead screwdriver and pop the clip on either head. This will allow you to pull the strut right off. Once the strut is removed you just have to push the ends of the Replacement Lift Cylinder # UWSLIFTCYLIND onto the mounting points until they pop into place. I confirmed this with my contact at UWS.

  • Recommended Tire and Wheel for Spare to Best Match ST205/75D15 Tires with Dexstar Wheels
  • The most common bolt pattern for your wheel and tire size is the 5 on 4-1/2 inch. I'm not sure if you have a color you wanted to match, but based on your given capacity the tire is Load Range C so here are my recommendations for your spare. Black=Kenda Loadstar ST205/75D15 Bias Trailer Tire w/ 15" Black Mod Wheel # AM3S664DX Silver=Castle Rock ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 15" Silver Mod Wheel # LHACK121 White=Castle Rock ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 15" White Mod Wheel...

  • Correct Powered Conversion Kit for Bulldog Square Jack 10K/12K 182800
  • The correct powered conversion kit for your Bulldog Square Jack part # BD182800 is the Bulldog Powered-Drive Kit for Single-Speed Jacks part # BD1824200100. Please note if your Bulldog Square Jack was made before 2003 then you will also need to use the Gear Kit for Bulldog Sidewind Jacks part # BD500212. The manufacturer date code should be printed on the jack somewhere, usually on the end cap but if you can't find it just let me know.

  • Will the Timbren Front Suspension Enhancement System Work on a Leveled 2018 Ram 2500
  • I spoke to my contact at Timbren and they informed me that the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System part # TDF25004E is 4-5/8" tall. I do not have any dimensions of the factory bump stops on your 2018 Ram 2500 unfortunately but you can use the above to find the difference. If the threshold for the front bump stop is then changed with the leveling kit then the Timbren Suspension Enhancement System most likely won't be effective. For an alternative option we have the Firestone Coil-Rite...

  • Boat Trailer Guide-On Recommendation for Larson Hull
  • For a Larson hull of that size I recommend the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers # CE27640 because they are 60" tall, which should give you plenty of visibility if you have to submerge your trailer a decent amount in order to get your boat onto your trailer. These guide-ons will fit trailer frames that are up to 3" wide x 4-1/4" tall, though if your frame is up to 5-1/4" tall you can still use these guide-ons by adding the CE Smith Extra-Long U-Bolt Kit for Boat Trailer...

  • The Mighty Mount 39H Accessory Adapter part # Y03539 is designed to allow for rooftop mounted accessories that use round or square crossbars to be used with the Yakima CoreBar and JetStream aero crossbars. The Thule Compass Kayak and SUP Carrier part # TH890000 is not designed specifically for round or square crossbars as it will fit aero crossbars too just like the Yakima CoreBar. Therefore, the Mighty Mount 39H Accessory Adapter should not be needed to fit the Thule Compass Kayak and...

  • Difference Between the MCL97RB and MCL97RPG Optronics Identification Light Bars

Other than that everything else is the same. I have attached review videos and photos for you to reference the differences as well.

  • I do have an option for you but I don't have any way for you to use your old Q-Towers on your new 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI because the clips are just not available. The best option you have to reuse some of the components you have now is to purchase new clips part # Y06123 for the front and part # Y06125 for the rear, new feet part # Y00146, and the adapter part # Y03536.

Instead I recommend the Fulton Hi-Mount Spare Tire Carrier # FHDSTC0101 which will fit trailers frames that are up to 5 inches tall and up to 3 inches wide so it is perfect for your trailer. The Fulton carrier has a zinc plating so it...

  • The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest cradle is around 40" tall whereas the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest cradle is around 42" tall. Please note the 3 Bike Hitch Mount Folding Rack part # 63123 has a 35 lb per bike weight capacity because that is what each cradle is rated for. The same will hold true for all hanging bike racks like the above. Therefore, you cannot use the above to haul your 60 lb wheelchair. Instead, you would...

  • Troubleshooting LF Error Code with Lippert Ground Control Leveling System

To clear that message Lippert states that you need to extend all of the jacks at least 6 inches. You will then press and hold the retract button until all the jacks begin retracting. Doing this should clear the error code but you will still want to try and track down the reason for the fault if you haven't already. It could be a dead...

  • Will Enclosed Trailer Interior Lights Drain Breakaway Battery Without Power from Tow Vehicle
  • Unless there is a battery isolator like the Buyers Products # 3376391050 on your trailer and it is set to off then your interior lights should pull power from your breakaway battery. The only other thing that may be preventing this is if your breakaway battery is dead. Since tow vehicles only provide a slow trickle charge on the 12V power wire if your battery is dead this would make sense. I recommend taking your breakaway battery to get it tested. If it needs to be replaced I recommend...

  • Is a 10 PSI Increase in Trailer Tire Pressure Normal from Heat Created by Driving
  • As long as you aren't exceeding the speed rating of the tires which would cause them to get to an excessive heat you are fine. Trailer tires are designed to be inflated to their max PSI rating when cold and then the pressure increase from heat from the road is normal and safe. You just need to verify you aren't exceeding the speed and weight rating and you are safe and would want to increase that alarm's threshold.

The difference between class III and class II hitches is the 2 inch opening compared to the 1-1/4 inch receiver tube opening. There are far more accessories and bike racks that fit a 2 inch hitch than the smaller 1-1/4 inch and because the shank inserted in the receiver is larger they are more stable and can support more weight.

  • Is Replacing Hydraulic Brake System on Trailer Easier than Converting to Electric
  • I think your best solution will be to go to electric brakes on your trailer. It's a bit more economical, easier to install, and since you already have a brake controller in your Ram it's really pretty simple overall. Basically you will just replace your current hydraulic assemblies with electric ones and then run wire from them to the 7-way installed on the trailer. If you currently don't have a 7-way you'd want the 7-way upgrade kit # ET7WK. This would come with everything needed to upgrade...

  • Recommended Hitch Reducer from 2-1/2 Inch Hitch to 2 Inch with 5 or 6 Inch Drop for 2016 Ram 2500
  • A high-low adapter like the Roadmaster High Low Adapter for Tow Bars - 2-1/2" Hitches - 4" Rise/Drop - 10K GTW # RM-058-4 is designed for use when flat towing which is pulling a vehicle behind a motorhome. The reason an adapter is needed is because tow bars that connect the vehicles need to be within 3 inches of level for safety. I've attached an article to assist. It sounds like you are looking for something for the back of your truck that allows for a drop for towing or accessories....

  • Troubleshooting Hub Install Where Spindle Nut Won't Tighten Beyond Certain Point
  • Sounds like an issue with the threads of the spindle if the nut won't turn beyond a certain point and the hub is not tight at all. I'd recommend pulling the hub off of the spindle and inspecting the threads of the spindle to see if you can find where it's having it's issue and see if you can clean up the threads if possible. Something might be in the threads that you'd be able to remove or the threads might be damaged.

  • Troubleshooting Brake Controller that Does Not Work at Trailer Connector
  • If the brake output is active at the back of the controller but then not active at the 7-way connector that would indicate you have a short on that circuit somewhere between the two. It could be as simple as corrosion on the pins of the 7-way or even at the back but if not you'd have to trace the wiring to find the short and fix as needed. I attached a help article on troubleshooting brake controller installs for you to check out as well.

  • I looked up your 2008 Chevy HHR with an automatic transmission and it can be flat towed as-is as long as you follow all of the guidelines in the owners manual and stay under 65 MPH. To flat tow your vehicle you will need to start with a base plate designed to fit your vehicle which for that you'd want the Roadmaster part # 3141-1 which is a confirmed fit. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to...

I believe what you are referring to are the warnings about making sure that your tow bar is rated properly and that you don't use an adapter with a vehicle that weighs over 5,000 lbs. Since your (discontinued) Blue Ox Aladdin Tow Bar BX4325 is rated for 7,500 lbs and fits directly up to this base plate kit you don't have to worry about those warnings. To complete...

The manufacturer installs the wire, etc, so the gauge of wire may not be large enough for the system depending on the run, but that auto-reset breaker will also wear down with use and trip more easily as time goes on. This is likely what is happening, so I would start with the new breaker # PK54250. If...

However, if the distance between the bottom of the frame and top of the leaf spring pack has changed which I can only assume it has then you will need spacers to fill the gap until you have around 1/2" - 1" from the bottom of the Timbren and top of the leaf spring pack.
