Hi there Heavy Haulers today in our 2015 GMC Sierra 2500, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install CURT's Custom Fit 5th Wheel Rail Kit. And this is what our rail kit will look like when it's installed. You'll have two rails located in your bed and they will be spaced far enough apart with various different slots on them, to accommodate most different types of 5th bow's out there. This rail kit is going to be custom designed for your Sierra, where it will sit in our bed and have all the hardware that we'll need to get it installed, including all the spaces and brackets that properly line up in the raised sections that we have here in our bed, to ensure that we don't crush it down. It's a pretty quick and easy installation. So why don't you follow along with me and we'll go over it together so you can have the confidence to do it at home.We'll begin our installation by getting the appropriate location for one of our rails, by measuring the distance from the truck bed here at the back to the edge of our rail. more

Demco Hijacker Above-Bed Base Rail Kit Installation - 2018 GMC Sierra 2500- Video

Demco Hijacker Above-Bed Base Rail Kit Installation - 2018 GMC Sierra 2500

Rob: Hey everybody Rob here @etrailer.com. Today we're going to be taking a look at the Demco Premier Series-Above Bed Fifth Wheel Rails and installation kit on our 2018 GMC Sierra 2500. Our Demco rails are going to work great for the Demco Hijacker 5th Wheel, but they're also going to work for B&W, Draw-Tite, CURT and many other 5th wheel manufacturers because they are going to have this spacing of a standard 5th wheel. So each one of our rails is going to be 43 inches long and the nice thing about these rails is, is whenever you're not towing you can pull the 5th wheel out and then you can see you have full access to your bed. Now keep in mind though our rails do stick up, so if you have something really long you need to slide in you will need to get over that initial hump of the rail. But our rails are only going to stick up about an inch and a half so we're really not losing that much space.As far as the installation goes, we are going to have to drill a few holes in the bed of our truck to have the bolts go down through. more

Connor here at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to be taking a look at these Firestone Ride-Rite air helper springs for our 2020 GMC Sierra 2,500. Our Firestone air Springs here are going to be an excellent option for our Sierra. So what these are going to do is they're going to offer us additional support while we're towing or hauling a heavy load. Now we're going to need this extra support because when we are towing or hauling in a heavy load, the rear end of our truck is going to sag, which is then going to bring the front end up and that's going to cause all sorts of problems. So just as a bit of comparison here, we have the factory jounce bumper and her we have our Firestone Ride-Rite air helper springs installed. more

So they on our 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 we're going to be taking a look at, and showing you how to install the BMW turnover ball under bed gooseneck trailer hitch, with the custom installation kit. This can also be easily converted into a fifth wheel, and you would do that using the BMW Companion, which is more or less than adapter that goes in here. That way if you've got multiple trailers are safe if you have a gooseneck knob, but you might plan on using a fifth wheel in the future. You're going to be able to tow fifth wheels and goose necks with just one kit.Being that this is an under bed kit, all of her main components are going to be located here underneath our truck, which in turn means that we're going to have full bed access here up top. And that can be especially useful when we're running around the job site, maybe throwing a few motorcycles in the bed, or even some luggage when we we're taking the family on vacation. more

Hi, I'm Shane with etrailer.com. Today, I'm going to walk through how to install the Bargman Gooseneck Fifth Wheel 90 Degree Wiring Harness on our 2018 GMC Sierra 2,500.Adding wiring like this, in the bed of your truck, is going to allow you when you're hooked up your fifth wheel or gooseneck, to plug it in inside the bed. You're not going to have to take your cord, hang it over top of your tailgate, and plug it in down by your bumper.It's going to give you your seven pole connection, casing is a very durable plastic casing, so we're not going to have to worry about damage. We're going to have a spring loaded lid. On the underside of the lid, it's going to have a foam ring on it, and what it does, it seals right around here, to keep any dirt, debris, and moisture from getting onto our connections.It's going to plug directly into our factory seven pole plug on the back of our vehicle. And if you notice right here on the lid, this is going to tell us what each one of our pins or each one of our wires are doing inside of the wiring harness.This wiring harness is also going to come with an extension plate and where this goes, it actually would mount right behind the backside of the plug here, to give you that added space in case the 90 degree section of your wiring makes contact with the outside of the bed.Now that we've gone over some of the features, let's walk through the installation together. more

And it's going to eliminate the need to drape your wiring over your tailgate, have to worry about it accidentally coming unplugged, or even scratching up your truck's finish.The cab is going to be spring loaded, and on the bottom side there's going to be a rubber seal. And with those two things put together, that's gonna help keep out any dirt and debris. It's also going to help resist any corrosion, not letting moisture inside.There's also going to be a tab here that hangs down and the purpose of that, so whenever you plug in your wiring it's going to catch it and help it from accidentally coming disconnected.So one of the things I really like about this kit is that it's going to be plug and play. So it's essentially just going to plug in to your seven way down at your bumper, but it's still going to allow you to use that seven way down at your bumper as well as the one inside of that.And with it being plug and play installation is going to be very straightforward. more

Often, your fifth wheel gooseneck trailer, the cable that comes with it isn't long enough to reach over the back of the bed of your truck to plug into your existing factory connector. And if it is long enough, it's usually just barely long enough and then you've got a cable rubbing up against the outside of your tailgate potentially scuffing up the paint.This keeps everything in your bed, doesn't put any stress on the length of your cable, and your factory seven-pole connector still functions along side with this one. The seven-way connector has a spring-loaded cover with rubber gasket on the inside to keep out any dirt, debris, and moisture, ensuring a long lasting connection.You will have to drill a hole to mount your seven-way connector. more

Today on our 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 we're gonna be installing PTC's custom fit engine oil filter. Prior to doing your oil change and replacing your oil filter, it is recommended that you get your oil up to operating temperature because warm, hot oil is thinner so it will drain more of the oil out than if it was thicker, cooler oil. Additionally, I like to pop the top on the oil fill cap because that will allow air to go in as the oil drains out, preventing any glug, glug, glug gurgling out of your drain pan. This will also let more of the oil come out. So you're getting the most of the old oil out and putting fresh oil in.We're now underneath of our Sierra. Here's our oil pan, located here. more

Once you lock the handle open, when you back your king pin in, or back up to your trailer, it's going to spread this apart just a little bit. What it's going to do, it's going to put pressure on this side, which is going to release the handle lock and allow the jaw to close.You're going to have guide rails here and that's what sets this apart from others. These guide rails can be adjusted depending on the size of your pin box.

SeaSucker Roof Rack Review - 2016 GMC Sierra 2500

Speaker 1: Today on 2016 GMC Sierra 2500, we're gonna be doing a test fit on the Seasucker Monkey Bar Roof Rack System, part number 298-SX6000.Now we have the front bar installed, let's take a closer look and show off some of the features.Now what sets this roof rack apart from a lot of other roof racks out there on the market is that rather than having the traditional clamp style where it comes under your door frame right here and clamps on, it suction cups to the top of your roof to provide still a snug fit. This is convenient for installation and removal, makes the process a lot quicker, and assembly of the roof rack is a lot quicker than those traditional clamp style roof racks.We do have round bars on this roof rack system, so you are gonna have some wind noise and drag. But if you wanna get rid of that you can purchase the fairing separately at etrailer.com to place it in front to kind of divert that wind and cut down on that drag and noise.And it uses a plunger system to suction cup to the roof of our truck. Each cup is gonna have 210 pounds of pull pressure, so it's gonna be very sturdy on our truck and not move.How we got the front bar in place, we measured from the top of our windshield to the top edge, or the front edge I should say, of our front suction cup. That way we had it even and square on both sides.What's also cool about this roof rack system is that you don't have a set spot of where it needs to be like those old traditional clamp style roof racks. You can place it wherever's convenient for you, as long as you place the suction cups in a spot where the roof doesn't have any of these ridges right here that pop up. more
