Video Transcript for TorkLift Front Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs Installation - 2020 GMC Sierra 2500

Ryan: Hey everybody, my name's Ryan and here at eTrailer, we install, test, fit and review a lot of different parts. That way we could try to answer any questions those of you might have. And that's exactly what we're doing here today on our 2020 GMC Sierra 2500. We're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Torklift frame-mounted camper tie downs for the front. So something I want to mention right off the bat, in order to properly secure your end bed camper down completely, you're also going to need a set of these for the rear. With that being said, you can pick them up individually or as a complete kit, and you can find all those products right here at eTrailer.So this is going to be a really dependable and convenient way to secure down the front of your end bed camper.

Since these mount directly to the frame, you know they're going to be heavy duty and very solid, which is definitely important. And not to mention, they're going to be easy to get to whenever you are ready to hook up your turnbuckles to them. Everything's relatively open and shouldn't really fight you a whole lot whenever you're ready to do that. Now, if you need some turnbuckles, the ones that I suggest and I really like are the FastGuns by Torklift. They're designed to pretty much work perfectly with this setup and it really does make life really easy.Now, for those of you that are wondering how far out does this come from our truck.

In our case, I'm just going to measure from the end of it to the stuff here that's on our bed and with it like this, looks like it's going to be about two and three quarters of an inch. Now, if you need it to come out further, we can accomplish that by coming to this pin and clip. If we pull this out, you can actually see that there is another hole there. So what we can do is use that hole, reinstall that pin and clip. And that'll give us quite a bit more space here.

So with it like this, you go from this step on our bed to the very edge. It looks like it's going to be about six and three quarters of an inch.Something that's pretty neat too, whenever you're not using your end bed camper, you can leave these in there, which is perfectly fine or you can completely remove them and that's definitely what I would do. So if you pull out that pin, you can remove this whole thing and then you can put it in your back seat, in your garage, whatever the case may be. And with it like this, you're not going to have to worry about anything coming out past the truck and not to mention, I think it looks great too, unless you're really down low on the ground and looking for this, you're never going to be able to see that receiver. So it really does do a great job of kind of maintaining our truck's factory appearance.Now, one thing I really do like about the Torklift is the overall quality of construction.

These things are really nice actually. Once you kind of get them in your hand, you can tell everything's straight, nice and thick steel. Even all the welds are really clean, so you know you can rely on this and it should last a long time. And even down to just the overall finish, it almost has a textured, almost like a hammer tone, tight powder coat finish. It's really thick and should stay in good shape. You shouldn't have to worry about these things rusting out or getting too beat up over time.So at the end of the day, you really can't go wrong with these tie downs. This is a surefire way to know that your camper will be secure. Now, as far as the installation goes, it's actually pretty simple. It utilizes one factory bolt that you can easily get to and take out, and it also utilizes two factory holes in your frame rails. You're not going to have to worry about drilling anything out or cutting anything up. And because of that, it shouldn't take you a whole lot of time. Speaking of which, let's go ahead and put them on together now.To begin our installation, we're going to be on our driver's side and we're going to need to locate one of our factory bed bolts. And that's going to be in this area right here, just behind our cab. So this is the bolt that we're looking for right here, and we're going to remove it using a 18 mm socket. And once we have it removed, you want to make sure and hold onto it because we will be reinstalling it later. Now, we can go ahead and get our hardware ready for one of our attachment points. An attachment point is going to be this oval shaped hole right here. And what we're going to do is take this two inch bolt, a star washer will go over it, and then you're going to grab one of these spacer blocks, put that on as well. Then, we can grab our pull wire, take the coiled end of it and thread it onto that bolt. Then, we can feed our hardware inside of the frame rail for that opening there. Going to pull on your fish wire and keep it in this position right here.Then, what we can do is grab this large plate style spacer, run that through our fish wire and put over the bolt there. So that's going to sit against our frame rail just like that. Then, what we can do is go ahead and grab our tie down receiver. Now these are side specific, so make sure you check the instructions and make sure you have the right one. And the way this has got to work is our fish wire is going to get fed through this hole here, then we can grab this and lift it up into position. Now that we have it like that, what I'm going to do is pull that bolt out as far as we can. And I'm trying to get a little bit of pressure on it, that way I can remove our pull wire. Once that's removed, you're going to carefully take a flat washer, a split lock washer and a nut and get this started hand tight. So now what we can do, you see this hole here and kind of lift up a little bit, that's actually going to line up with a factory hole in the frame. So you're going to line that up, take the coiled end of your fish wire and push it through.When you have this out, what you're going to do is take the shorter bolt, a star washer, thread that on. We're going to pull on it to get our bolt to pass through. Again, we'll carefully remove our pull wire and then we'll just take a flat washer, split lock washer, and a hex nut, and get this started hand tight as well. And then what we can do is grab our factory bolt that we removed earlier. This is going to run up and get pushed through our tie down and go back into the bottom of our bed. This can be a little tricky to line up. Make sure you got it going nice and straight. Once you do, you're just going to get this hand tight. So now that we have all of our hardware in place and hand tight, we'll come back with a socket and just snug everything down.Once all the hardware is snug, you need to make sure to come back with a torque wrench and tighten it all down to the amount specified in our instructions. And if you plan on keeping your actual tie downs installed all the time, you can simply just slide this in, you're going to take the pin and secure it that way. Now with that being said, the other side of the truck will be set up the exact same way, so you're simply just going to repeat the same process over there. And that'll finish up our look at and our installation of the Torklift frame mounted camper tie downs for the front on our 2020 GMC Sierra 2500.

Worked out great, fast shipping made it possible to install today. So a good experience I have placed another order for the Happijack quick turnbuckles too.

I like the product but you sent me items that are supposed to be brand new and they’re all beat up like someone used and returned. They should be perfect as far as no chips and paint is concerned but it’s the opposite. Bad on your company charging me full price for these beat up items. I’ll be seeking a refund or partial refund


Comments
I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

Excellent design and product. Pretty much the only company out there with frame mounted tie downs. This is my second set I have purchased over the years. The only area for improvement is packaging. It’s 2021 and you’re wrapping powder coated steel in loose paper for shipping?? The brackets have ding marks and scratches and powder coat chips. Mix in some internal cardboard, bubble wrap or styrofoam.



- TLC2225
by:

Easy install, good directions, shipping packaged well. Installed in about 1.5 hours by myself, used impact to remove bed bolt. It requires a floor jack or good upper body strength to hold it up while starting the bed bolt back in, but smooth sailing after that. Gloves and long sleeves will keep you from getting underbody paint all over yourself. When not in use just remove extensions and unless you’re looking for it you will never notice them.

I bought these for my 2020 Silverado 2500HD, and the fit was excellent. I advise any users to read and understand the instructions prior to installation, but with that in mind, installation only took a little over an hour. The fit was great and the inserts fit closely, but without contacting the body panels.

Been using these for a year now for ny Lance 825, which I carry with a Chevy Silverado 2500. The tie downs have held up great, even with the amount of bumpy dirt roads we drive on. I recommend these tie downs for mountain truck camper life.

The product I got was fine, but I'm more impressed with Greg S. From Etrailer. He performed something called 'great customer service' I know many of you younger people might not know or have heard of such a thing, but it's awesome. Its refreshing to have enjoyed an interaction, verses suffering through one.



- TLC2225

Easy to fund and order exactly what I needed, delivered fast and good directions made for a fairly easy install. A bit expensive but worth it.

Very heavy duty, solid construction. This is the second set I got since new truck used different part#. Barely noticable when not in use. Once again the company communicates throughout the whole ordering/delivery process.

I have installed the new TORKLIFT frame mounted tiedowns on my 2020 GMC HD 2500. After watching the video on your web site I installed all 4 without any problems. I was very impressed with the great fit and no need to drill anything using existing holes in the truck frame. Truck looks completely factory when extension bars are off. Great product.
