Do TorkLift Camper Tie-Downs for 2012 Ford F-350 With Factory Hitch & 8 Foot Bed Require Drilling  


I own a 2012 F350 XLT Super Duty with an 8 foot box and factory installed hitch. I am looking at purchasing the Tork Lift custom frame mount tie downs TLF2016 and TLF3006 is this the correct setup and will this require any drilling? Also the price of $xxx for both the front and back together?


Helpful Expert Reply:

I verified with TorkLift for you that the correct tie-downs for your 2012 Ford F-350 Super Duty with an 8 foot bed and factory installed hitch are the following:

- Front: TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs # TLF2016

- Rear: TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs # TLF3006

Installing these tie-downs do not require drilling, and the total price is for the front and back tie-downs together. I added a review for you from one of our customers who used these same tie-downs on their F-350 which also mentions one of the benefits of these tie-downs is that they do not require drilling. The frame-mounted option is a really smart choice not only due to the fact that they don't require drilling, but due to the security and stability they offer compared to bed-mounted tie-downs.

For turnbuckles the best option by far are the TorkLift Locking FastGun Turnbuckles because their handles make them so simple to use and because they are locking to help protect your investment; these turnbuckles come in a quantity of four and you can choose from different colors:

- Polished Stainless Steel: TorkLift Locking FastGun Turnbuckles # TLS9526-2-LK

- Black: TorkLift Locking FastGun Turnbuckles # TLS9529-2-LK

- Gray: TorkLift Locking FastGun Turnbuckles # TLS9522-2-LK

The Locking FastGun are a more premium option however, so for more economical turnbuckles you will need a quantity of two of either the TorkLift Basic SpringLoad Turnbuckles for Camper Tie-Downs # TLS9000 or TorkLift SpringLoad XL Turnbuckles for Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs # TLS9050A.
