TorkLift Camper Tie-Downs - Front Tie-Downs - TLD2140 Review


Today we're going to take a look at the TorkLift custom front frame mounted camper tie downs. Now these parts are a custom fit part. They are designed to fit the 2019 Dodge Ram 3500 crew cab trucks, with the eight foot bed, and without a running board, or a step underneath the truck bed. And on a custom fit part like these, I do recommend for you to go to our website, use the fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show you if this will work for your application.Now these tie-downs will provide the attachment points at the front of your truck for securing your bed mounted camper to your vehicle. These are the front tie-downs. We do also sell the rear tie downs, they're sold separately on our website, and they're listed on this product page as a related product.

Now you will feel dramatic improvement with the vehicle handling and stability, and it is the safest way to haul a truck camper. Prevents any vehicle sway and camper movement in all directions.You'll haul your truck camper confidently by attaching these tie-downs to the strongest part of your truck, which is the frame. And vehicle manufacturers do recommend that all full height slide in camper bodies should be directly attached to the vehicle frame structure. The frame mounted design will ensure the excellent handling, by securing the camper to the truck's base instead of to its bed, which will better distribute the weight to keep the setup from being too top heavy.And it also helps avoid any bed and bumper damage that's common with other tie-down systems that are sold. Now these are a nice fast no-drill installation securing your truck camper to your truck.

And they also help you maintain the value of your truck, prevent any rust and bed damage by avoiding drilling into your truck bed or bumper. These are custom fit for your vehicle. The brackets are designed to fit tight to the truck frame, so there's no loss of any ground clearance, so it works perfect if you do any off-road truck camping. And what's nice is when you do remove these tie down inserts, just pop the clip, remove it, and then they'll slide right out. With those out, if you're not hauling your truck camper, these brackets will be virtually undetectable when they're not in use, because it has a hidden design of the brackets.So it makes your truck, returns it to its original look, you won't even know they're on there.

And then when you do go to hook your camper down and you slide your insert in, if you notice the insert will have two holes right here. So basically it'll allow you to connect your turnbuckles. You turnbuckles will connect right up here ,and then you can slide them in. If you use the first hole, that'll stick out a little bit further from the truck or you can slide it all the way down to the second hole, which will bring it closer. So depending on your application with the turnbuckles connect it.

So you might need some extra clearance, you can pick the correct hole that's right for you.Once you find that, just stick your pin through there, snap it into place. And you'll be all ready to go. Now these are a driver's side bracket. These are a passenger side bracket. Basically, you can tell that because on the passenger side bracket, if you notice the shorter side right here of the tie-down will always face the front of the truck. And on the driver's side, same way when this is mounted, this shorter side will face the front of the truck. Now these are a steel construction with a nice black powder coat finish for durability.Does include everything laid out here on the table. The two rear tie-down insert, the train brackets, all the necessary hardware to install everything. Nice set of detailed instructions. And these parts are made in the USA. But that should do it for the review on the TorkLift custom front frame mounted camper tie downs.
