Tork Lift Camper Tie Downs - Good Fit?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone DIY installed the Tork Lift camper tie downs that are made for the 2021 trucks (mine's a 3500HD SRW CC LB with cab-only running boards and OEM trailer hitch)?  If so, I'm wondering how well they fit and how difficult you found the installation.  Thanks

I've installed two sets, on my previous 2018 3500 short bed and on my current 2020 3500 short bed. Fit and finish is top notch and the install is quite simple. Feeding the fisher line through the frame to set some of the bolts can be a little frustrating. Best option to tie down a truck camper 1726a71346fded6953a22f9ac29e2ef7.jpgc291ac126d6d5bc27fd666da3dd21c77.jpg

Check Torklift site for 2021actual part numbers  but I found the install very easy on my 3500 HD 2020 7 Ft box. 

 

Rear with OEM hitch . Safety cable hooks to a hole versus frame bracket and I added a SST link .

 

Good luck

Thanks for the feedback and photos.  What is the purpose of the "safety cable" in the last picture?

Just picked up my 21' 3500 short bed Friday for our new Lance camper coming and I'm doing Torklifts as well. Can you tell me if the front mount is in the way of the front jack, this is how it was on our last TC and I was hoping it wasn't that way for this one.

I can't speak for the Lance camper, but my Northern Lite's front jack doesn't interfere with the front tie down. There is several inches of clearance.
If your jacks end up interfering with the tie down, Dually jack brackets may be an option.

Safety cable is OEM/ factory supplied that secures Rim/ Tire assembly to frame.
