TorkLift Camper Tie-Downs - Rear Tie-Downs - TL94YR Review


Jeff: Hello everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're going to take a look at the Torklift custom rear frame mounted camper tie downs. Now this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2019 and newer Ford Ranger trucks with the six foot bed, without the running board, or the step underneath the truck bed, and the factory installed hitch. And on a custom fit part like this, I like to recommend for you to go to our website, use the fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show if this will work for your application.Now, these tie-downs will provide the attachment points at the rear of your truck for securing your bed mounted camper to your vehicle.

The front tie-downs we do sell separately. One of the tie-downs will go on the driver's side. And one goes on the passenger side. And the two holes right here that are on the tied out inserts, this will allow you to connect your turnbuckles from your camper to your truck, and not interfere with anything on your vehicle. There's also two holes here on the shank of the insert, which will allow for different width campers.

Right now, I have it on the first hole so it sticks out a little bit further for a wider camper. If you've got a narrower camper, you could slide it further into the second hole, pin it, and then it'll work on a narrower camper.This will let you feel dramatic improvement with vehicle handling and stability. It is the safest way to haul a truck camper. It'll help prevent vehicle sway and camper movement in all directions. This'll let you haul your truck camper confidently by attaching your tie-downs to the strongest part of the truck, which is the frame, and vehicle manufacturers do recommend that all full high slide in camper bodies be directly attached to the vehicle frame structure.

The frame mounted design ensures excellent handling by securing the camper to the truck's base instead of its bed, which will better distribute the weight to keep the setup from being too top heavy. Also helps avoid bed and bumper damage that's common with other tie-downs systems.Now this is a fast, no drill installation. Securing your truck camper to your truck helps you maintain the value of your truck and prevent any rust or bed damage by avoiding drilling into your truck bed or bumper. As I mentioned, it is custom fit for your vehicle, has a driver's side and passenger side brackets. These mounting brackets will fit tight to your truck frame, and there's no loss of ground clearance so it's perfect for off road truck camping.

And they are virtually undetectable when they're not in use. Basically these tie-down inserts, pull the pin, and can easily remove from the frame mounted brackets with the pins. And you can see these will be underneath. So the hidden design of these brackets returns your truck to its original look when they're not being used as tie-downs. And then when you go to use them as tie-downs, you just slide this insert in, here's the two holes I mentioned.So if you slide it in, line it up with the hole on the mounting bracket, and if you line the first hole up, that'll get you for the wider camper, slide it all the way to the second hole, line the hole up with the pin, slide it through and clip it. And just like that, you're ready to go.These are steel construction. They have a nice black powder coat finish on them for durability, and it includes everything laid out here on the table. Includes the two rear tie-down inserts, the two frame brackets, all the necessary hardware and a nice set of instructions on how to install everything. And these parts are made in the USA.But that should do it for the review on the Torklift custom rear frame mounted camper tie-downs.
