torklift component questions


I just replaced my 2005 dodge 2500 with a new 2019 3500, 4x4, crew cab, srw, 6.5bed and need to outfit it for my artic fox 811s truck camper. Which components do I need to order? currently I have in my shopping cart the TLD1111-30 TLA7200 TLA7310S TLD2141 TLR3510

I have a couple of suggestions for you but you are really doing good on your kit so far. The TorkLift SuperHitch Magnum Trailer Hitch Receiver part # TLD1111-30 is what you want for the TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs - Rear part # TLR3510 and the TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs - Front part # TLD2141 are a confirmed fit so to this point you are golden.

For the suspension upgrades what you have will work. Using the TorkLift StableLoad Suspension Upgrade w Quick-Disconnect part # TLA7310S and the TorkLift StableLoad Suspension Upgrade for Upper Overload Springs part # TLA7200 should help with level.

With the weight of your Artic Fox 811s being 3500 lbs. dry I instead recommend using the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2615 these offer 5000 lbs. of leveling capacity and will ensure you are sitting exactly at factory ride height rather than having squat with the Torklift Systems. This is important to maintain good driving and hadling characteristics when hauling your camper and will also improve the ride quality when not loaded.

I highly recommend the air bags over the others. Plus it would be much more cost effective so we can add some other items you want.

The things I have found important when working with customers who have in bed campers especially one as big as your are a hitch extension that will allow you to add a step at the rear or even haul a trailer. For this use the TorkLift SuperTruss Hitch Extension for SuperHitch Trailer Hitch Receivers part # TLE1536.

In bed wiring is also important to connect the camper to the truck for this use the Bargman Fifth Wheel Wiring Harness part # 50-97-410.

Lastly I recommend tie downs like the TorkLift Locking FastGun Turnbuckles for Frame-Mounted Tie-Downs - Stainless Steel part # TLS9522-2-LK

I have linked all of the parts for you to check out. I know it is a long list but you will be very happy with the ease of use and the quality of these products. They can make life easier and more enjoyable.
