TorkLift Camper Tie-Downs - Front Tie-Downs - TLD2142 Review


Today we're going to take a look at the TorkLift custom front frame mounted camper tie downs. Now these are a custom fit part. They are designed to fit the 2019 Ram 3500 crew cab with the eight foot bed and with the board or the step underneath the truck bed. And on a custom fit part like this I always like to recommend for you to go to our website use the fit guide, put in your year model vehicle, and it'll show if this will work for application. Now these tie-downs provide the attachment points at the front of your truck for securing your bed mounted camper to your vehicle. We do also sell the rear tie-downs.

They are sold separately on our website.This will offer two holes right here in these tie-down inserts and that allows you to connect your turnbuckles from your camper to your truck and not interfere with anything on your vehicle. Also, if you notice on the inserts, let me take the pin out to show you, when you slide them out you'll notice they have two adjustment holes on the inserts right here for different depths. So it allows you for different width campers. So, when you do insert these if you put it in the first one it'll put it out more. If you put in the second one it brings it closer to the vehicle.

And put a pin back through there.Now with these tie downs you can feel dramatic improvement with the vehicle handling and the stability and it's the safest way to haul a truck camper. It prevents vehicle sway and camper movement in all directions. You can haul your truck camper confidently by attaching these tie downs to the strongest part of your truck which is the frame. Vehicle manufacturers do recommend that all full height sliding camper bodies should be directly attached to the vehicle frame structure. The frame mounted design ensures excellent handling by securing your camper to the truck's base instead of just its truck bed and that'll better distribute the weight to keep the setup from being too top heavy.

It also helps avoid any bed and bumper damage that's common with other tie-down systems.This is a fast no drill installation. Securing your trucks camper to the truck maintains the value of your truck and prevents rust and bed damage by avoiding drilling into your truck bed or bumper. And as I mentioned it's custom fit for your vehicle. It comes with a driver's side and a passenger side bracket. And these brackets here will mount tight to the truck frame so there's no loss of any ground clearance so it's perfect if you do any off road truck camping.

And once these are installed and if you take your inserts out they are virtually undetectable when they're not in use.As I mentioned these inserts can be easily removed as I showed you earlier if you just . I opened the pin right here and then slide your insert out and once your insert's out these mounting brackets would be underneath the truck you wouldn't even see them. The hidden design will return your truck to its original look. And then when you go to use them just slide it in, put it to the correct hole you need, slide your pin right back through, and then clip it right into place and you're all ready to go. These are steel construction, they have a nice black powder coat finish on them for durability. It does include everything shown here on the table. The two front tie-down inserts, the frame brackets, these mounting brackets, all the necessary hardware, and even a nice installation guide that'll describe how everything installs. 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.
