How to Install the TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie Downs on a 2004 Dodge Ram Pickup


Today on this 2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 3500 Series Quad Cab, were going to install part number TLD3109. This is a TorkLift Camper Tie Downs. This tie downs are installed in the back of the bumper. To get our vehicle ready, we went ahead and sprayed it down with some Penetrant to help loosen up the bolts. What well need to do is go ahead and remove our bolts. Now were looking at the passenger side and this will be identical for our driver side as well.

Youve got a variety of bolts we have to uninstall, these locations and these two as well. Our tie down bracket is going to up in this place and this will be stuffed back on top of it. Now what we can do is actually just leave these as loose as possible and let this rotate out of the way as well too. We dont want to take them completely off. To loosen these fasteners up, were using the 15 mm socket. Well use the same socket on these two bolts.

These two bolts will require a 21 mm socket. On the other side is a handle nut. Lets go ahead and slide our bracket into place and then well install the hardware that comes with the kit right here. Well push that from the inside to the outside and then on the threads on the inside here, well install a flat washer, a lock washer and a nut. At this point, were going to leave this loose and were going to reinstall the original hardware. On this side, were going to start from the top and work our way down. With all our hardware loosely installed, well go ahead and tighten it down and then torque them down as per instructions.

Now to tighten these fasteners down, Ill need a 3-1/4 inch socket and a wrench. With all the bolts tightened down and torqued for our passenger side and basically were going to repeat all this on our driver side. With the tie down receiver in place and tightened down, well go ahead and install the bit insert. Well just go ahead and slide it in. You have a couple of adjustments for your tie downs. In this case, well just go ahead and just push it all the way in for storage and install the lock pin or snap pin.

That will finish it for the TorkLift Custom Frame Mounted Camper Tie Downs for the back of our truck part number TLD3109 on our 2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 3500 Series Quad Cab. .
