How to Install the TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie Downs on a 2005 Ford F-350


Today on our 2005 Ford F350 super duty crew cab, we're going to be installing the TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs for the rear of the vehicle, part number TLR3504. Now, this specific TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs are specifically designed for the Torklift SuperHitch Magnum. Now, they will fit any truck that has a SuperHitch Magnum hitch on it. Let's go ahead and start over here on the driver side. We're going to be using this hardware right here, as well as right here. We'll need to remove the nut and the lock washer from both of these two locations. We'll then go ahead and repeat the same process over on the passenger side. Now, here's what our bracket looks like that we're going to be installing over here on the driver side.

There's two holes built into the bracket that will line up the two bolts that we just removed the nuts from. We'll take the center here 01:10 that has extra plans 01:11 welded to it. It will slide in the tube of the receiver and onto bolt of the bulbs. Now, with our brackets in place, we can go ahead and re-install the lock washer and hex nut on each of the bolts. We'll then tighten it down and torque it to the manufacturer's specification. We'll go ahead and repeat the same process over on the passenger side. Next, we're ready to install the second half of the bracket.

You'll notice that there's two holes drilled in it, here and here, and you can line this up with a hole right here that goes to the other part of the bracket we already mounted. Depending on your camper, we'll depend on which hole it will line up. You can line it up with the first hole which will put 02:33 the bracket a lot farther up from the vehicle or you can push it in to the closer hole. You'll then take your pin and clip, slide it through both holes, and secure it here on the back side. We'll then go ahead and repeat the same process over on the passenger side. Now that we have our brackets completely installed, let's go over a couple of quick things about them. Now, when you install the outer portion of the bracket, you want to make sure that the shorter edge is towards the rear of the vehicle like we have it installed.

It also comes with a little sticker here that you can add to it, so that's assure you put them back in the proper position each time. Go ahead and put our sticker on. That will do it for our installation of the TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs for the rear of the vehicle and for vehicles with TorkLift SuperHitch Magnum hitches installed, part number TLR3504 on our 2005 Ford F350 super duty crew cab. .

For non super Hitch magnums, what mounting options are available, for instance on our truck which is running a hidden hitch. We have the simpler inserts for the hitch with a small bracket from torqlift but I do not know if that applies

I would like to help with this question. What is the year make and model of your truck? Does it have the factory tow receiver installed? What is the bed length? Does your running board run all the way back to the rear wheel?

@AaronM it seems that you want to load a in-bed camper and need tie downs for your camper to be secured to a 2005 Ford F-350 dually with a 8-foot bed. (No running board or step, and aftermarket hitch that is not TorkLift brand) You can install the TorkLift # TLF2011 (front) and # TLF3004 (rear). I have attached a video link showing the installation.
