  • Parts Needed to Add a 7-Way Trailer Connector and Brake Controller to a 1972 Chevrolet Pickup
  • We have everything that you will need to add a 7-way trailer connector and a brake controller for trailer brakes to your 1972 Chevrolet pickup. You will need a 4-Way Wiring Kit, # 18252, the 7-way and 4-way Installation Kit, # ETBC7, and a brake controller, I recommend the Prodigy P2, # 90885. The first thing to do is to install the 4-way wiring kit, # 18252. This kit includes a wiring harness with a 4-flat trailer connector, a circuit tester and 4 quick splices. To install this wiring...

  • Will Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System # TGMRC10A Work on a 1972 Chevy Truck with Coils
  • I spoke with my contact at Timbren and she informed me that the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System, # TGMRC10A, that you referenced, would work on your 1972 C/K Series with coil springs. I attached installation instructions for you to check out also.

  • Trailer Hitch to Fit Behind Flip Down License Plate on 1972 Chevy Pickup Truck
  • The higher the trailer hitch capacity the more steel is used to make the hitch. Higher capacity (10K) hitches like what you are describing usually have a 2-1/2 inch square cross tube or larger (up to 3 inch) so you can measure to determine if you have the space for that size. Please note that modifying a trailer hitch will make its capacity unknown and the heating of the hitch to weld it can weaken the hitch (unless it was designed to be welded on). The best recommendation I can...

  • Tonneau Cover Recommendation for 1972 Chevy El Camino
  • I checked with Craftec and the only tonneau cover they offer for your 1972 Chevy El Camino is the part # 252198 that you referenced. This is a heavier duty tonneau that would work well though.

  • Compatibility of a Hitch for a 1972 Chevrolet K Series Truck
  • The Curt # C15511 hitch is the confirmed fit for a 1972 Chevrolet K Series truck if you have the 8 foot bed and the deep drop rear bumper. The measurement from the top of the tube to the mounting flange is 8-1/32 inches. The extended length was to make sure the hitch would clear the bumper. If you have the standard bumper, then the Curt Hitch # C14082 is the confirmed fit. If # C15511 can be installed on the standard bumper model, then there will be a large gap between the bumper...

  • Reducing Engine Oil Temperature Using Derale Tube-Fin Engine Oil Cooler Kit # 15505
  • Typically a system like the Derale Tube-Fin Engine Oil Cooler Kit, # D15505, is used on vehicles where high oil temperatures are a concern, like one that is towing during the summer months. The thermostatic adapter will allow oil that is cooler than 180 degrees to bypass the cooler. The temperature of the oil when it entered the cooler will vary depending on the outside temperatures, driving conditions, how the system is set up, etc. Allowing the oil to flow through the tubes cools...

  • Is there a Length Requirement for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Ram 3500
  • Length is not an issue unless there is some law in your state restricting the length of a truck towing a 5th wheel trailer. You do not have to have a dually truck to tow a 5th wheel trailer. As long as the payload capacity is rated higher than the pin weight of the 5th wheel trailer when loaded and ready to tow and the gross trailer weight is within the capacities of the truck you can tow the trailer. The towing capacities of the truck should be in the owners manual or on the Dodge...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 1972 Chevy Blazer
  • Curt trailer hitch # 13028 is designed to fit early to mid 2000s cab and chassis model GM trucks but not your 1972 Blazer. There are no custom fit hitches available for your 1972 Blazer but you may be able to use a weld-on hitch. Take a look at the link to the right to our weld-on truck hitches. I am certain that one of these will work quite well on your Blazer. Any welding should be performed by a qualified professional welder.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 1972 Chevrolet C10 Pickup
  • The trailer hitch I recommend for your 1972 C10 pickup is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 75034. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2 inch receiver opening. If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If the ball mount kit does not...

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement For 1972 Chevy C10 Pickup With 5th Wheel Hitch
  • For your 1972 Chevy C10 Pickup, the Firestone Riderite Air Helper Springs # F2071 is not a fit for your C10 whether it had a 5th wheel hitch or not. This system is only a fit for the C30 model. The reason for incompatibility with an in bed hitch is due to the mounting location on the frame. Both the hitch and the springs require the same location, so you would need to choose between them. To assist with your suspension, I have one option confirmed to fit your C10 to enhance the rear...

  • Rear Helper Springs, Not Air Bags, for a 1972 Chevy Blazer 4x4
  • While there isn't a Timbren system that is designed to fit your 1972 Chevy Blazer 4x4 I do have a solution for you. For a suspension enhancement system that will fit and that is not an air bag system you can use Roadmaster Active Suspension Kit Item # RAS4511. This system will also help reduce sag, body role, axle wrap, wheel hop and increase handling like other upgrades. And like Timbren springs once the active suspension system is installed it does not require maintenance. I have linked...

  • Will 4-Way Vehicle Wiring Harness Have the Wiring to Install Electric Trailer Brakes
  • The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package - 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector, # 118269, will only run the lighting functions from your vehicle to your trailer. If you are needing to connect a brake controller to your trailer, then more wiring will be needed to make the connection. Using the Universal Installation Kit for Trailer Brake Controller - 7-Way RV and 4-Way Flat - 10 Gauge Wires, # ETBC7, will allow you to wire a 7-way RV trailer connector to your vehicle and the...

  • Trailer Hitch Fit for a 1972 Chevy C20 with Step Bumper
  • Thanks for the picture of the rear of your 1972 Chevy C20. Based on that it looks like you would need a hitch for a drop bumper setup like the Draw Tite part # 41504 so that it would clear the bumper.
