Needing the Torklift Camper Tie-Downs for a 2016 Ram 3500 4X4 Dual Rear Wheels


I have a 2017 Ram 3500 4x DRW With a factory hitch and I want to add the original torqlift to it. Im trying to figure out which camper tie downs I need. there are no steps at the bed, it has an original 2.5 in hitch right now.

We have the camper tie-downs that you will need.

The Torklift Custom Frame-Mounted Tie-Downs, # TLD2124 for the front and, # TLR3507, for the rear will fit the 2016 Ram 3500 with factory hitch, 8 ft. bed, and no step boards mounted along the bed. The Torklift tie-downs are designed to mount to the frame of your vehicle. This product has a limited lifetime warranty and is made in the USA.

Note that the Torklift camper tie-downs cannot be installed on a vehicle that have factory airbags installed. Since your Ram has dual rear wheels, you may require # TLA7004 when installing the tie downs. Part # TLA7004 is a anchor relocation kit. This kit will relocate that rear tie-down anchor points to compensate for the width of some dually trucks. Adapter kit will most likely be needed if the distance between the front bumper of your camper and the center of the rear anchor point is less than 90 inches.

I also recommend the Torklift Locking FastGun Turnbuckles, # TLS9526-2-LK in polished stainless steel, # TLS9529-2-LK stainless steel in black, and # TLS9522-2-LK stainless steel in gray. The Torklift turnbuckles will secure camper to you ties downs and with the FastGun lever action design theses turnbuckles are easy to operate.

I attached videos on both installing the Torklift tie-downs and a review of the Torklift turnbuckles for you to review.
