What Turnbuckles are Recommended for Torklift Frame Mount Tie-Downs on a 2010 Nissan Frontier


Hello, I am going to purchase this set, however I would like to know what turnbuckles go with these? I suppose I need 4, but dont know which ones to purchase for my particular truck and camper, but they all like like they are the same size and price for 2...why dont you sell them in lots of 4? I have a 2010 Nissan Frontier SE Crew Cab with 5.5 bed. I purchased a travellite camper which fits with tailgate down or removed. Please let me know

To maintain the warranty of the Torklift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs, # TLN2409 and # TLR3500, for your 2010 Nissan Frontier, you will want 4 spring loaded turnbuckles like the Torklift SpringLoad XL Turnbuckles, # TLS9050A or the FastGun Turnbuckles, # TLS9526. Torklift requires spring loaded turnbuckles for frame mounted tie-downs due to the tension they provide. As you mentioned, these are sold in quantities of two so you would want two sets of the turnbuckle you choose.

Torklift offers a few sets of 4 turnbuckles, but those kits include only 2 spring loaded turnbuckles and two non-spring loaded turnbuckles. Torklift does not offer sets of 4 spring loaded turnbuckles because many trucks do not require 4 frame mounted tie-downs. Many times trucks will only require two frame mounted tie-downs and two bed mounted or bumper mounted tie-downs, which would use the 4 turnbuckle kits.
