DeeZee Truck Bed Auxiliary Tank Installation - 2008 Ford F-450

Today on our 2008 Ford F450, we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the DZ Truck Bed Axillary Tank. This aluminum tank with a rectangular shape has a capacity of 38 gallons. Its part number is DZ91752X. Now, to make our installation go a lot easier, we're also going to be using the DZ connector kit. This is part number DZ97960. Here's what our axillary tank's going to look like once we have it installed in the vehicle. As you can see, the aluminum diamond-plate finish gives it a really, really nice look, but it's also going to keep it corrosion resistant, not going to have to worry about rusting and things like that.



Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 Ford F-450

Today in our 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the B&W Turnover Ball under-bed gooseneck trailer hitch with custom installation kit, part number BWGNRK1108. Here's what this gooseneck is going to look like once it's installed on the truck. As you can see, we're still going to have full bed access even with it installed, because all you're going to see is your safety chain connection points and then your cut-out here for where the ball's going to go. Not only is this gooseneck hitch going to allow you to tow gooseneck trailers, but when used with the B&W 5th Wheel companion adapter, it's going to allow you to tow fifth wheel trailers as well, and that's one of the things that sets this gooseneck hitch apart from some of the others that are available for it. This is going to give us a 2-5/16 ball in the bed of our truck to attach to, and it's a solid steel construction so it's going to be nice and durable. It's nice and easy to slide in, and it's got a square design. You know what's nice is here around the edges it's got the cut-outs, and what that does there at the corners is allow dirt, grime, and debris to fall down through and not collect in there and cause a problem with getting your ball in and out in order to flip it over.



Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 Ford F-450

Today on our 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the B&W custom underbed installation kit for the B&W companion fifth wheel trailer hitches, part number BWGNRK1108-5W. This fifth wheel installation kit is designed to let you install your B&W companion fifth wheel trailer hitches. The adapters that work with this are part number BWRVK3500 or part number BWRVK3400. The underbed design of this kid allows for full truck bed access and when you're ready, it's under five minutes to convert your empty truck bed into a fifth wheel hitch. We'll start off by unlocking our B&W hitch and installing our fifth wheel adapter. We have ours pre-assembled but you can adjust the uprights here depending on your truck and trailer combination. At this point, the hitch is ready to attach to the trailer.



Fifth Wheel Installation - 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty

Today, on this 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty, we're going to install part number RP50082-58. Our next step: We'll go ahead and mark out our bed for our first bed rail. We're going to measure from the edge of the bed to wherever the outside edge of our bed rail will sit. In this case, it's going to be 32 1/4 inches, but always go by your instructions. All right, now we'll go ahead and set a rail up to our initial marks and then we'll make sure that it's even from left to right. At this point, we'll go ahead and mark and drill our holes. We're going to use a 1/2-inch drill bit to make our mark in the bed first, and then we'll go ahead and drill out with a 1/8-inch drill bit. All right, next, we'll go ahead and look for our holes that we drilled through the bed, located right here and here, then we'll take a frame bracket and hold it up against the frame and our drilled holes and makes sure everything lines up correctly.



Bully Custom Truck Front Floor Liners Review - 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty

Today on our 2008 Ford F450 Crew Cab Duly, we'll be doing a test fit of the Bully Custom Truck Floor Liners for the front in black color, part number FM-312. To begin with, we'll need to remove any existing floor liner or floor mat that may already be in the vehicle. We'll start here on the driver's side. As you can see here, there's one factory hook that helps keep the original floor liner in place. The new Bully liner has an area that is raised to go over this section. There is also a heel pad area for extra added wear, just where the pedals would be. There are nibs on the back side of the mat to help it grip the carpet and stay in place.



Fifth Wheel Wiring Harness Installation - 2008 Ford F-450

Today on this 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty, we're going to install part number 54701-003. First up, let's find a location for our connector. In this instance, we're actually going to install about right here. That way it's easy to get access to it from the tailgate section. To install it, we're going to have to drill a pilot hole first, then go back at it with a 2 inch hole saw. Now, take our wire harness and run it through the hole and let it fall out the bottom. Take our 7 pole connector and push it into place.





2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty Questions and Answers


  • Firestone Ride-Rite Air Bag Suspension for a 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty King Ranch
  • For your 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty, you can use the Firestone Ride-Rite System, # F2446, that you have referenced. The recommended single function compressor is # F2097. The single function indicates that it has one gauge and both air bags are inflated/deflated together. Based on your application, the single function would work well. The compressors we carry are only rated for and tested with Ride-Rite systems, so I cannot say if they can be used for blowing out tractor radiators. The...

  • Can the Demco Recon Fifth Wheel Adapter Be Used with a Trail Air Pin Box

  • Mounting Tab Dimensions of Reese R20 # RP30867 Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • I am assuming you are asking about the distance apart of the mounting tabs that insert into the bed mounting rails. The side to side dimension, measured center hole to center hole is 20-1/2 inches. Front to back, center tab to center tab measures 22 inches, as you can see in the photo I edited for you. The Reese R20 is compatible with Reese, Curt, Hidden Hitch, Draw-Tite, Pro Series, Husky or Valley bed rails.

  • Is it Recommended to Shorten the Length of the Titan Hitch Extension for 2-1/2 inch Trailer Hitches
  • Cutting the back of the Titan Hitch Box Extension for 2-1/2 inch Trailer Hitches, item # RP45018, off is not a concern as long as you leave at least 6 inches behind the center of the hitch pin hole, and you do not excessively heat the extension when cutting it off. Any other modification like drilling, grinding or cutting should be avoided.

  • Is Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Spring # F2446 Compatible with B&W Gooseneck Hitch in F-450
  • In the case of the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Spring Kit # F2446, which fits the rear axle of your 2008 Ford F-450, there will NOT be any interference problem to worry about. Sometimes an air bag kit can interfere with goose neck or 5th wheel hitch installation. This can happen when the two items use similar mounting locations along the truck's frame. This kit installs without drilling and it works either with or without factory top overload springs. The kit includes everything you...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2008 Ford F-550 Super Duty with Western Hauler Bed and Air Ride
  • Since your 2008 Ford F-550 is a medium duty truck there are no custom underbed installation kits that will fit. You would have to have a custom installation performed by a qualified fabricator. These means that one of the other kits, such as # RP30073, would have to be modified which will void the warranty. A better option is to use the Reese low-profile hitch # RP30054. This hitch will also require a custom installation but you would not have to worry about voiding any warranties because...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Wiring Adapter Retains Use of Rear 7-Way for 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty
  • There is a specific wiring harness for your 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty that is a better fit than the 20023 wiring harness. You will need Draw-Tite Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck Wiring Harness # 20110. For this harness, your vehicle will have to have a factory tow package, which you have indicated that your truck does. The harness plugs in between the the OEM wiring harness and the factory 7-Way connector. You will still be able to use the factory 7-Way with this harness installed. I have...

  • TorkLift Camper Tie-Down Options For 2008 Ford F-450
  • I spoke with my contact at TorkLift and they told me that The TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs, part # TLF2011, and # TLF3004, will fit your 2008 Ford F-450 if it has an 8 ft bed. The installation does not require drilling. We do not have a solution for the shorter bed on the F-450. If your Ford F-450 is a Cab and Chassis model with no running boards, you will want part # TLF2008 and part # TLR3500. If you have an aftermarket hitch installed, you will have to drill 4 holes...

  • Rear Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty Dually
  • In terms of air springs that are rated higher than # F2446, we do not carry a set rated higher for a 2008 Ford F-450. However, if you do not need to level the bed side to side often, which is one benefit of air springs, I would go with a Timbren system instead. Take a look at the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System, # TFRSDP. It is rated for up to 12,000 pounds which is more than twice the capacity of the air springs. The Timbren system is also low maintenance. You will not have...

  • Difference Between Curt 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kits for a 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty
  • There are actually 2 possible Curt 5th wheel installation kits that will fit your 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty. The only difference between them is the finish. The Carbide finish on the installation kit you have reference, # C16448-204, is more of a matte (not shiny) finish. The other option is the Glossy finish, # C16448-104. As the name suggests it is shiny. Both of these kits are compatible with the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # C16245. This hitch has the more matte finish so...

  • If you have the Class 5 hitch on your F-450 and the inside measurement of your hitch opening is 2-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches, then this ball mount will work in your truck's receiver hitch. The hitch ball you selected has the proper 1-1/4 inch size shank to fit the RP45323 ball mount. If you have a 2 by 2 inch receiver then you could use ball mount DTBM5400 (see link below), up to 14,000 pounds and the same ball for your towing needs.

  • Compatibility Of 7-Pin Flat To 7-Way Round Trailer Connector
  • A 7 pin flat connector is normally European. It will give you the same functions as a 4-way flat. To convert the wiring to make it functional with a 4 way, you will need the Roadmaster Brite-Lite Wiring Converter # RM-732. You can use a circuit tester like # 3808 to determine functions for proper connection. To get the other functions for your trailer 7-way, you will need the # ETBC7 kit and a brake controller like # 90195. If you are looking to adapt from a 7 round to a 7 blade,...

  • Can 18K Reese Signature Hitch be Replaced With 24K Reese Signature Hitch on 2008 Ford F-450

The new Reese hitch is the Reese Elite Series 25K Hitch, part # RP30871. It is rated for a gross towing weight capacity of 26,500 lbs.

  • We do have an option for you to use your Curt Q24 # C16245 with an underbed rail kit on your 2008 Ford F-450. I recommend using the Reese Underbed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30073 which will give your F-450 a puck system. You can then use the Reese Elite Series Adapter # RP30156 which makes the puck system compatible with 5th wheel hitches that use standard base rails. Please note that the weight capacity of this under-bed rail kit is 18,000 lbs so that will be your limiting factor. If...

  • 5th Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2008 F450 Western Hauler
  • I can't recommend you modify the rails of a fifth wheel installation kit for your 2008 Ford F-450. However, this is a rail kit that has rails that are slightly shorter that is confirmed to fit your vehicle. The Reese Rail kit part # RP30035 has rails that are 41.8 inches in length. It's not much shorter than 43, but hopefully it would be enough.

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a 2008 Ford F-450 Towing 2007 Keystone Springdale
  • Weight distribution is recommended when the loaded weight of the trailer is more than half of the weight of the tow vehicle. Your trailer loaded will probably weigh about what your tow vehicle weighs, if not more. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow, this figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached an FAQ on determining tongue...

  • Trailer Lights Go Dim When Multiple Light Functions are Used at the Same Time
  • You are definitely on the right track for troubleshooting your trailer lights going dim. The first thing that we recommend doing is checking all of the grounds on your trailer making sure that they are secure and connected to a clean, bare metal surface. You will also want to check your vehicle and trailer connector to make sure that they are free of any debris or corrosion. The next thing to look at is to see if you have too many lights on your trailer. You can test this by disconnecting...
