Now as you can see here with our factory floor mat removed, you can see how inadequate the coverage was. Especially underneath where the gas pedal is you can see how much dirt and debris has embedded itself in the carpet. Before we install our new mat, we'll make sure we vacuum up all the loose dirt and debris.Now we'll take our new mat, we'll slide it underneath our pedals, line up the holes with the factory floor mat retention hooks, and push it into place. Now you can see how much more expanded our coverage is. It goes up behind our gas pedal area, it goes up further against the firewall, giving us more protection if our feet are muddy. more

You won't have to drill that large hole in the bed of your truck. more

The gas struts are gonna provide enough tension to keep our screen taut, but also allow enough for movement while we're going down the road. Now I do want to mention that in our application we do have a rear exiting exhaust so you don't want to idle the motor home too long with the Tow Defender in place because it can cause some warping and damage to the material.The construction of our Tow Defender, all the brackets are gonna be made out of steel with a black powder coat finish to prevent any kind of rust or corrosion on them. Now when we're not using our Tow Defender we can remove the pin and clip from each side, we can take the Tow Defender out of the bracket, and then simply roll it up to where we can store it on the back of our motor home. Then they do provide us with some straps that we can wrap around the Tow Defender and in a nice, neat package to where we can just leave it right here whenever we're ready to tow.Our Tow Defender's gonna work with all Blue Ox and Demco tow bars with the appropriate brackets as well as all Roadmaster motor home mounted tow bars. more

And the black powder coat finish is going to hide it nicely and blend in with the front of our truck, as well as provide a nice rust resistance. more

Now, the first thing you're gonna notice that's gonna set it apart from other ones, is the integrated LED lights that are built into the arms. Now, this is not only gonna illuminate it, making it easier for us to see what we're doing if it is dark, but it's also gonna let people know that you are flat towing a vehicle, illuminating the area between your vehicle and the motor home.Now, it's still gonna serve the same purpose as all the other tow bars. It's gonna allow us to hook up our motor home and safely and securely pull our truck down the road.The tow bar is gonna slide directly into the two inch by two inch receiver tube opening on our motor home, so we're not gonna have to worry about having a ball mount or any other accessory to hook it up.Now, on the vehicle side, our tow bar is gonna work with the MX, MS, and EZ5 base plates, and it's gonna come with the necessary pins and clips to get everything attached. The telescoping arms are gonna make it a lot easier to hook up, giving us a large hookup radius so we don't have to be directly behind the motor home.If you've ever flat towed a vehicle before, you'll know that if you're not perfectly behind the motor home or on perfectly level ground, the tow bar can get into a bind, making it a lot harder to unhook. Well, our tow bar here has a non-binding design, so we just simply pull on this lever if it was in a bind, and release a lot of that tension, making it a lot easier to unhook.Now, the tar bar itself is an aluminum construction with a black powder coat finish that not only is gonna look nice, but it's gonna give us a long-lasting durability. more

The biggest benefit to this style though over a lot of the others are the completely sealed ends here, that prevents any moisture from getting inside those steps and we don't have kind of that rust out you used to get to where the bottom of them would be all rusty and eventually just fall apart.Now each tube is gonna have two polymer steps, it's gonna have raised traction, helps us get grip as we get in and out and as you can see they're positioned really nicely directly under the truck. The ends of the tubes are gonna turn in slightly towards the vehicle, it helps to give it a more finished look.Now with these being polymer they're gonna be resistant to UV rays, salt, discoloration, cracking, things like that. more

Today on our 2016 GMC Sierra 2500, we'll be having a look at and installing the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs with Internal Jounce Bumpers, part number AL88338. Now, the reason you want these is because when we have a heavy load in the back of our truck or we're towing a heavy trailer with a high tongue weight, it alters the characteristics of the handling of our truck. The back end will squat down on the ground, and the front end will rise, giving us poor braking, increased tire wear, decreased handling, and also changing our headlight angle. With these installed supplementing our vehicle's suspension, it'll give us the extra comfort that we need and the extra safety that we need in order to maintain factory ride conditions with up to 5,000 pounds of weight on the truck. Now, when operating these airbags, it's important to keep in mind that they have a range of air pressure, from 5 psi at the minimum, up to 100 psi. All right, the first thing we want to do before we do our install is get a couple measurements here and find out where our truck sits with factory ride height. A completely stock truck right now, we have no weight in the bed of the truck at all, so this will give us a good baseline measurement to compare what happens when our truck's loaded down. We're just going to measure through the center line of the wheel up to the top of our wheel arch here. more

Today on our 2016 GMC Sierra 2500, we'll be having a look at and installing the Curt Double Lock, Flip and Store Underbed Gooseneck Hitch with installation kit, part number C607-604. All right, here's what our gooseneck looks like installed underneath the vehicle. Now, what sets this gooseneck apart from other goosenecks on the market is the fact that our ball is here in place in the gooseneck with a double-pin mechanism. A lot of the other goosenecks on the market secure the ball with just a single pin. This gives it added strength and durability. Now I'm going to go ahead and retract our handle, and you can see how the ball is secured. On the driver's side of our vehicle, we'll find the handle that we can use to remove our ball. This is the handle that secures it in place. more
