How to Install a Torklift Rear Frame-Mounted Camper Tie Downs on a 2018 Ram 3500

Today in our 2018 Ram 3500, we're going to be installing Torque Lift's custom frame mounted camper tie downs for the rear.These camper tie down points will give you a secure place to hook up the turnbuckles for your camper to ensure it's secure to the bed of your truck. These tie downs are designed to work specifically with Torque Lift's super hitch, so you'll already need to have that installed.Now if you don't have a super hitch installed on your vehicle, you can find the most appropriate one using our fit guide here at for your vehicle.The tie down arms can slide in and out, so when you're not using it, you can reduce the footprint they have on your vehicle. There's two holes, depending on the length that you need for your camper. Simply slide it in, lining up the holes, insert your pin and then lock it in. You want to make sure that your tie down points are facing the appropriate direction, so we've got our holes on top, and the offset towards the rear.If you frequently remove your arms, there's stickers that come included with your tie downs, so you can label them for quick re-installation, without having to worry that you're putting the wrong arm in the wrong hole.So we're going to remove these two bolts from our Super hitch, using a 3/4" socket wrench. We can then slide our receiver into our Torque Lift hitch, lining up the holes with the original.

You want to make sure this collar is facing toward the front.Now, if on your Super Hitch, the bolts didn't already have an adequate length of about 1/4" of the thread sticking out, you will need to use the bolts that come provided with your camper tie down. But since ours had plenty of threads, we're going to re-use the bolts we took out. We're just going to slide those back through, and slide our lock washers on, and re-install our nuts.We can now tighten and torque our hardware. We'll then torque it to the specifications found in our instructions. We can repeat that exact same process on the other side.And that completes our installation of Torque Lift's custom frame mounted camper tie downs for the rear on our 2018 Ram 3500..
