  • Will Truck Bed Cargo Camera For 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty Be Blocked By Toolbox
  • The Truck Bed Cargo Camera for 8" Factory Monitor - Switch Kit part # 3460001 does feature a 150 degree angle image and 360 degree adjustable camera. Since your tool box is most likely up against the cab, you can adjust the camera angle to see over it. I have attached a screen shot of the vehicle that shows the camera angle with a Gooseneck ball setup for your reference. This particular camera is made for Ford with a 8" factory monitor, if your Ford has a 4.2" monitor you will need...

  • Where do Red Wires on Custom Third Brake Light Camera for Ford Super Duty Connect to
  • Both of the red wires on the Custom Third Brake Light Camera for 8" Factory Monitor # 3460006 will connect to power on your 2015 Ford F-350, while the black wire needs to be connected to ground. When we installed this wiring kit on a 2015 F-350 we used a fuse tap # F2526 to fuse location 44 (auxiliary switches) on the passenger fuse panel. To get this whole system to work properly you will want to have both red wires connected to continuous power so that when you flip the switch it will...

  • Compatibility and Weight Capacity of O-Track Systems
  • We have previously tested the Erickson and Tow-Rax O-Track Systems and found them to be compatible with each other. I went out to our warehouse to test the Erickson Anchor Ring # EM59132 on the Buyers Product Super Track # 337ST93 and found it to be compatible as well. This means the O-Track components from all three of the manufacturers you mentioned are indeed interchangeable and will work well each other. The tie-down rings included with the Buyers Products Super Track Kit actually...

  • Will MaxxTow Hydraulic Pickup Truck Crane Work to Lift 5th Wheel Hitch Out of 2018 Ram 3500
  • The MaxxTow Hydraulic Pickup Truck Crane # MT70238 along with the Demco Bracket # DM6100 is a great option for lifting a 5th wheel hitch out of the bed of your 2018 Ram 3500 and it will work really well. Just keep in mind that the crane likely won't reach all the way to where the hitch is mounted to the rails so you will still need to manually move the hitch a bit in the bed to where the crane can grab it. I have attached a couple video demonstrations that you can check out as well.

  • Recommended Third Brake Light Camera For 2019 Ford F-250 With Factory Reverse Camera
  • I do have third brake light options for your 2019 Ford F-250 although I am not exactly sure what you mean by interphase. The third brake light cameras available for the 2019 F-250 Super Duty are compatible with what specific monitor have from the factory. Since you have a factory reverse camera you will need a Third Brake Light Camera compatible with the reverse camera and whichever screen you have. If you have an 8" factory dash monitor you will need Custom Third Brake Light Camera...

  • Camera System for Hitching Goosneck or 5th Wheel Hitch on 2013 Ford Super Duty w/ Headache Rack
  • If your headache rack doesn't block the 3rd brake lamp, we have an option that would work great for you. Take a look at the # 3460008 from GCH Automotive. This system is intended for use on vehicles that don't have the factory reverse camera, and the monitor is included. If your truck has a factory rear view camera already, use the # 3460025 which would utilize your factory 4.2 inch factory monitor. Even if the headache rack blocks the 3rd brake lamp itself, the camera extends about 1-1/2...

  • Truck Bed Camera for 2017 Ford F-350 That Works on Factory Monitor
  • There is absolutely a camera system that will work with the factory monitor on your 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty, and the correct one will simply depend on the size of your factory monitor: - Truck Bed Cargo Camera for 8" Factory Monitor # 3460001 - Truck Bed Cargo Camera for 4.2" Factory Monitor # 3460002 Each of these cameras will install under your F-350's third brake light and comes with a switch kit so you can switch between your truck's back-up camera or this observation camera....

  • Ramps for Loading Riding Mower into Back of a Pickup Truck 37 from Tail Gate to Ground
  • I have a solution for you, but unfortunately the Arched Loading Ramp # 288-07432-2 set have a maximum safe height of 35", so they would not work for your 37" tall truck bed. You may want to try the Erickson Arched, Aluminum Loading Ramp Set # EM07486. These do not have a specific loading height and these will work as long as the angle of incline less than 30 degrees. Because the Erickson Arched ramps are 90" long and your loading height is 37", you should be in the 25 degree incline...

  • Best Way To Remove and Install Heavy 5th Wheel Hitch In Truck Bed
  • In order to lift your PullRite SuperGlide 5th Wheel Hitch in and out of the truck bed I recommend using the MaxxTow Hydraulic Pickup Truck Crane part # MT70238 along with the 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket part # DM6100. This is a very popular combo for heavy hitches and it is super easy to use. The main issue you will run into using a cherry picker or engine hoist is that most cannot lift high enough to get the hitch in and out of the truck bed but that should not be an issue with the above...

  • Best Ramp That is Easily Stored for Loading a Smart Car onto a Trailer
  • I have a solution for you, but the CargoSmart Arched Loading Ramps # 3483070 are going to be about 7" tall at their tallest point when laid flat on the ground. If you don't mind folding up the ramps and storing them in the rear cargo area of your Smart Car, I recommend going with the Arched Landing Ramp Set # 288-07432-2 , which fold up to a size of 45-3/4" long x 18" wide x 6" tall. You'll need to measure the area for yourself, but from what I was able to find from my research, these will...

  • Difference Between Stake Pockets
  • I believe you may have been referencing the Curt # C83072 and the etrailer # HW03-080 because the only stake pocket from Redline is the Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchor # WFSPDR which has a D-ring and is much more than twice the Curt because it has a different application. Assuming that, the difference between the two stake pockets is simply the dimensions. The Curt # C83072 has inner dimensions of 3-3/4" long x 1-5/8" wide x 3" tall and has steel which is 3/16" thick, while the etrailer...

  • Maximum Amount of Weight That Can Be Applied to 288-07489 Stallion Loading Ramps
  • The 3000 lb capacity would mean that each ramp can handle a maximum of 1500 lbs applied to it or 3000 lbs for the pair. Since your tractor weighs 3500 lbs, I wouldn't use these ramps if the weight from both axles would be on the ramps at the same time. If the tractor's wheelbase is longer than the ramps (65 inches), it would mean that you'd pull the front wheels onto the ramps and by the time the rear wheels were on the ramp, the front wheels would be off so the entire weight of the tractor...

For weld on stake pockets there is the Curt # C83072 which is 4-1/8" long x 1-7/8" wide x 3" tall; the etrailer # HW03-080 which is 3-9/16" wide x 1-9/16" deep...

  • Truck Bed Cargo Camera for 2011 Ford F-250
  • We currently have two factory monitor truck bed cargo cameras available for your 2011 Ford F-250; the GCH # 3460006 that you already mentioned that's designed for the factory 8 inch screen and the GCH # 3460025 that works with the factory 4.2 inch screen. I recommend taking a quick diagonal measurement on the screen itself inside your truck (from a bottom corner to a top corner on the opposite side).

  • Are Erickson Loading Ramps Made in the USA
  • We do have some ramps made in the USA but all Erickson ramps, like part # EM07486, are made in China. The Snap-Loc ramps, part # SLATTR972-2, are made in the USA but they're shorter at only 72 inches. Another option is Gen-Y ramps, part # 325-GH-R84, which are 84 inches and have a much higher capacity at 6,000 pounds.

  • Truck Bed Tie-Downs for 2016 Ford F-150
  • I may have a solution for you, however the ProGrip Retractable Tie-Down Anchors # 317-850760 that you referenced are not compatible with the stake pockets on your 2016 Ford F-150. At this time we do not have any stake pocket tie-down anchors available that will work on your truck. An alternative that should work nicely is the Pilot Bully Clamp Truck Bed Movable Tie Down # WTD-823. These are universal tie-downs that will mount anywhere under a truck's bed side rail without the need for...

  • Backup Camera System Used with Factory Monitor on a Ram 3500
  • I do have a camera system that will tie into the factory in-dash monitor on a 2010 - 2019 Ram 3500 with the Truck Bed Cargo Camera for Factory Monitor part # 3460015 but this as I am sure you can see installs on the vehicle and is used predominantly for hitching the trailer to an in-bed hitch.

As you can see, the vertical channel that extends above the shank only does so by 3/16" so I don't feel this will be an issue. However, you will want to pay special attention to the angled portion of the body in relation to the hitch pin hole. If the above will not work for you then we do have the HitchMate TruckStep Extendable part...

  • Troubleshooting Truck Bed Cargo Camera on 2016 Ford F-350 with Factory Screen
  • For your 2016 Ford F-350, the Truck Bed Cargo Camera for 8" Factory Monitor - Switch Kit # 3460006 is the correct fit. I reached out to their tech and he said since you are getting the switch over to a black screen it simply sounds like you aren't getting 12v power to the camera for it to sent the signal back. You will want to use a circuit tester like # PTW2993 to test the black power wire going to that camera and then trace that wire to determine why power is not getting to the camera....

  • Truck Bed Cargo Organizer That Fits 2019 GMC Sierra 1500
  • I'd measure again to be sure of what you have. Most standard truck bed widths are right at 72 inches which the # HE4016-4017 would fit and work well with but if you are at 73 inches this probably won't get as snug as you'd like. Instead we have the Erickson part # 08907 which has a range of 60 to 75 inches which will work either way. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

I checked with Buyers Products and they do not have a recommended spacing that these should be used at because it will depend on the size of the load and the length of the trailer.

  • Ramp Recommendation to Help Loading Recumbent Bike into Van
  • The total weight of the MaxxTow Loading Ramp Set part # MT70120 that you referenced is 40 lbs so each ramp will weigh right at 20 lbs. These are a bit overkill for what you need but they would work. Another option would be the Erickson tri-fold ramps part # EM07434. These are a few lbs lighter a piece and can fold down pretty small for easier transportation. I attached a couple pictures that show them in use and folded. Again these are also a bit overkill and not exactly cheap either.

They also come with chains to help secure the ramps while loading. They will work with anything from big wheel ATV's to small wheel lawnmowers due to the close spacing of the horizontal supports.

They are designed for ATV's and Golf Carts, so I looked up the standard golf cart weight which is 900-1050 lbs. That is the closest to a weight rating I can give you knowing that is on the lower end of capacity.

Individually each has a 1,500 lb capacity and each ramp has three prongs that lean on the trailer. So each of them is rated for 500 lbs basically. The prongs are made from a very thick aluminum and since they are very long there isn't much leverage on them which is how they are capable of the weight.

  • Best Tailgate Seal for a Chevy Silverado
  • For your Chevrolet Silverado 1500, I recommend using the TruXedo Universal Tailgate TruxSeal part # TX1703206 because it uses actual 3M branded tape which is very strong so you should not have any issues with sagging. Please note you will need to make sure the surface you attach this to is smooth and free of dirt and debris. It will also need to be installed on metal, not the actual bed liner which you can see in the attached photo.

  • Will Toolbox Prevent Viewing Gooseneck Ball with In-Bed Third Brake Light Camera 3460002
  • The answer to your question will depend on how tall the toolbox sits over the top of the bed and how far back into the bed the toolbox goes. The easiest thing to do would be to take a length of string, tape it to the underside of the 3rd taillight lens and run the other end to the top of the gooseneck ball, or to a point about 3 inches above the truck bed centered over the center of the rear axle. If the string doesn't hit the toolbox, you'll be able to see the gooseneck ball when hitching...
