Review of TorkLift Trailer Hitch TLC1208


Speaker 1: Today we're gonna take a look at the Torklift SuperHitch Custom Fit Original Trailer Hitch Receiver, with the dual two-inch hitch receivers and a 20,000-pound weight capacity. Now this is the custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2011 to 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 trucks with an 8-foot bed. And on a custom-fit part, I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show you if this'll work for your application.Now this hitch has dual, vertically stacked receivers that'll let you tow a trailer and even use a hitch-mounted bike rack or cargo carrier at the same time. It is compatible with industry-standard ball mounts and hitch accessories.This is a heavy-duty hitch. It'll let you tow heavy loads, specially designed to maintain high capacity when used with the Torklift accessories, like a Torklift SuperTruss Extension.

And what that is is that's an extension that will insert into these openings here, and it helps extend your hitch receiver out to clear like a truck bed-mounted camper.It is truck camper friendly, Torklift design. It's pre-drilled. You can see the holes right here to accept like Torklift camper tie-downs that we sell separately on our website. This is a sturdy steel construction, has high penetration dual shield welding to ensure strength and durability. Around the hitch pinholes, a nice feature they offer, is a hardened, reinforced hitch pinholes, and that's used to prevent elongation from wear.

In other words, when there's movement, if you put anything in there and there's movement, that sometimes with the hitch pin it'll cause it to elongate, with that extra reinforcement it'll eliminate that. The two hitch pins and clips are included. Hitch locks, if you prefer. We do sell those separately on our website. They are extra.Now this is a bolt-on installation, no welding required.

Includes all the installation hardware to install it, nice set of detailed instructions. Does all have a black powder-coat finish on it to resist corrosion. Safety chain loops right down here are all built in. And again, as I mentioned, it's custom fit for your vehicle. It part is made in the USA.

The receiver openings are two inches by two inches.This is a Class 5 rating, so the maximum gross trailer weight capacity is 17,000 pounds. When used with weight distribution, it'll be 20,000 pounds. Maximum tongue weight would be 1700 pounds, and when used with weight distribution, it would be 2,000 pounds. The cross tube is a 3 1/2-inch by 3 1/2-inch diameter cross tube on this.But that should do it for the review on the Torklift SuperHitch Custom Fit Original Trailer Hitch Receiver, with the dual, two-inch hitch receivers and a 20,000-pound weight capacity.
