Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 Chevrolet Colorado - etrailer.com

http://www.etrailer.com/tv-hitch_install_2008_Chevy_Colorado.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today we are going to install hitch part number 82641 on a 2008 Chevy Colorado, and this hitch also fits models from 2004 through 2007, as well as 2004 through 2008 GMC Canyon. On the side of the frame we need to remove this rear-most bolt that attaches the bumper and bracket to the frame. And on the bottom, on pre-2008 models there are actually going to be two logistic holes here. On this 2008 model, there is actually a weld nut with a bolt into here, which we are actually going to take out, and we will be using this hole as well. We need to do that on both sides of the frame. Okay, with the bolts removed out of the frame, we want to go ahead and put the carriage bolt and block into the frame. And I am going to go through this hole here. And we actually want to use the fish wire that they provided. We want to feed it through the hole at the bottom of the frame and then run it out through the side access hole. Then we want to put the block on and then wrap the threads of the bolt with the bolt leader here. This allows us to pull the bolt and the block through the frame. And for pre-2008 models that have the secondary hole here, we want to do the same thing as well. But we want to make sure that the blocks do not overlap inside the framework, and we need to do this on both sides of the frame. I do want to make mention here that, again, on models before 2008 where you have both holes and not the weld nut, the block alignment is critical. Okay, with the hitch loosely installed here on the frame, I am going to go ahead and put the existing fastener that we took out earlier back into the frame. Then we are going to go over here to the side of the frame and install the fastener here. We want to make sure we put the 1/2 inch block in between the hitch and the frame. And we want to use the 14-mm hardware that they provided in the installation kit. Now we want to attach all fasteners on both sides. Now that we have got all the fasteners loosely installed, the next step is to tighten them down and then torque them to their specifications. The 1/2 inch fasteners here at the base of the frame are going to be torqued to 75 foot-pounds and the 14-mm fastener on the side of the frame gets torqued to 85 foot-pounds. And now that we have got all the bolts torqued down, the installation is complete. This concludes the installation of hitch part number 82641 on a 2008 Chevy Colorado.

Trailer Hitch Installation - 2002 Dodge Dakota - etrailer.com
http://www.etrailer.com/tv-Hitch_install_2002_Dodge_Dakota.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today we are going to be installing hitch part number 87554 on a 2002 Dodge Dakota. Alright, the first thing we want to do is go ahead and lower the spare tire and remove it and get it out of the way. Looking under the vehicle now, at the frame rails, the attaching points for the hitch are going to be here at the bottom of the frame. This existing hole, as well as this one here. There is a vertical attaching point as well, which is going to be where this bolt is here. So we need to actually remove the nut from the outboard side and pull this piece off. As you can see, there is an extra flange here that kind of holds the bolt in place while you are putting the nut on. If that happens to be pinched in between this particular set of bolts here, you might need to loosen these to allow this to be removed. So you will want to go ahead and remove this bolt and that assembly from both sides of the frame. As you can see I had to loosen these bolts here to get this top bolt out, the flange. You will want to make sure that you re tighten these as soon as you are able to get the top bolt out. Now that we have the bolt removed from the side of the frame, we will go ahead and put the hitch up into position. We are going to use the existing 7/16 bolt and we want to use the flat washer on there. We are going to put the bolt from the outside of the frame inward like so. The hitch flanges are actually going to be on the end board as well. With the vertical bolts now loosely installed on both sides, we are going to go back down to the bottom of the frame here. Then you want to fasten those with the hardened flat washer, lock washer, and nut. Proceeding 1997, your frame may not have the holes already existing in the frame. I believe the 1996 models have 1 hole and the 1995 and older actually have no holes, so both of them are going to need to be drilled. On this 2002 model, both holes are there. So we are going to go ahead and put the carriage bolts and blocks into place, in the top of the frame down through the holes in the hitch. We want to make sure we use the proper block alignment because there are 2 different ones that come with the hitch here. The one with the offset hole needs to go in the front. Now that we have all the bolts in place, we want to go ahead and tighten them down. We want to start with the vertical attachment point up on the side of the frame. We just want to kind of tighten it down, get it good and hand tightened on both sides. Then we want to come back and hand tighten these on both sides of the frame. After we have everything hand tightened down, we will go ahead and torque them down after that. Now that we have all of them hand tightened down, we want to go ahead and torque them down to their specified ratings. With all the bolts torqued down your installation is complete.





Trailer Hitch Installation - 2001 Chevy Venture - etrailer.com
http://www.etrailer.com/tv-hitch-install_2001_chevy_venture.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today we are going to be installing hitch part number 75278 on a 2001 Chevy Venture. We are taking a look at the driver side frame rail and as you can see there are 2 existing weld nuts in the frame. If you have dual Exhaust, you may have nuts already on this side holding your Exhaust up, in which case you will want to just remove the existing bolts out of the frame to expose these nuts. As you can see here on the passenger side, we do have the Exhaust and there are 2 bolts in the frame holding the Exhaust hanger on, we are going to go ahead and remove those and it is going to drop the Exhaust down here. On short wheel base models, there would be an existing hole here that we will be using as a forward most attaching point on the hitch. With this being the long wheel based model, that hole is not there so we will have to drill it, as well as the rear most attaching point. Now we will go ahead and remove these bolts from the frame. On these weld nuts right here on the driver side, since there was nothing existing in the weld nuts themselves, we want to make sure we get those nice and cleaned out so the bolts will go in fairly easy. The easiest way to do it is to go ahead and put some W-D40 in there, let it soak in a little bit. Then get a wire brush, or anything small that you can get in there, to clean the threads out. That will make your installation a lot easier. With the 2 bolts out of the frame, we are going to put the hitch up into position using the bolt holes that we just removed the bolts from. As you can see, we have the 2 bolts into the frame and into the existing weld nut. This hole here, we are going to have to go ahead and drill out. As well as here on the passenger side we need to drill the rear most holes as well and again the forward most attaching points as well. All of these holes are going to be drilled out to a half inch. I am going to start with a quarter inch to drill a pilot hole. Alright, with all of our holes drilled out, I am going to go ahead and start by putting the two inch carriage bolt and block into the forward most attaching point on the passenger side frame rail here. You want to use the provided fish wire. And, what we want to do is, go ahead and run it through the hole that we drilled and up out through the access hole here. We are going to go ahead and place the block on first. Then wrap the threads with the bolt leader like so. That will allow us to pull the block and the bolt into the frame and down. On this forward most attaching point, we are going to be using 2 of the provided block, lock washer and nut. For the rear most attaching point on the passenger and driver side, we are going to use what is called a handle nut and a regular half inch bolt. The handle nut starts off looking like this here. And this basically allows us to put a nut inside the frame. We are going to feed the handle nut in through this hole in the side of the frame. You basically just want to manipulate the handle nut to where the nut sits down at the base of the frame. And we are going to put the bolt up and through and tighten into it. So I am going to go ahead and manipulate the handle nut now to where I can get it into position, which should be something along the lines like this here. Then we are going to just take that, now that it is aligned perfectly over the hole we just drilled, and thread the bolt up into it. You will do that on the driver and passenger side. Alright with all the fasteners now into place hand tightened, we will want to go ahead and torque those down into position. The half inch bolts will be used with the handle nuts. They get torqued down to 75 foot pounds. The N10 fasteners here that go underneath the existing weld nuts get torqued down to 42 foot pounds. The extra fastener here on the passenger side of the frame gets torqued to 75 foot pounds. This concludes the installation of part number 75278 on a 2001 Chevy Venture.





Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2008 Chevrolet Colorado - etrailer.com
http://www.etrailer.com/tv-Wiring-install-2008-Chevy-Colorado-LT.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today we are going to be installing wiring harness part number 118301 on a 2008 Chevrolet Colorado. OK, we are underneath the vehicle and we removed the spare tire, and if you kind of look at the crossmember here, follow it to the drivers side you can see the T-harness that we are going to be disconnecting on the vehicle here. This is where our aftermarket harness is going to plug into. So the first thing we want to do is just go ahead and push the tab in and pull the connectors apart. OK, then we just want to go ahead and plug our harness in line here, like so. We want to find a mounting location for our converter box. You can see there is double-sided tape on the back side. We went ahead and cleaned off this location here and we are just going to go ahead and remove the cover from the tape and stick that right there, like so. OK. And then lastly, we want to ground the ground wire. Again, right here on the crossmember would be a perfect location to go ahead and ground it, we are going to go ahead and do that with the self-tapping screw that was provided with the installation kit. OK, and with the ground wire secured, our installation is complete. And this concludes the installation of wiring harness part number 118301 on a 2008 Chevrolet Colorado.





Trailer Hitch Installation - 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan - etrailer.com
http://www.etrailer.com/tv-Hitch_install_1997_Dodge_Caravan.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today we are going to be installing hitch part number 87717 on a 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan. We are underneath the vehicle now and I am going to go ahead and point out the attaching points that we are going to use for the hitch. As you can see there are 2 existing bolts in the bottom of the frame as well as a center hole here as well. The hitch is going to utilize this bolt here, as well as this hole here. On 2001 and newer models, we have a hole that is going to be existing here as well that the hitch is going to utilize. On this particular model, they do not have the hole already in the frame so we are going to have to go ahead and drill that out. So the first step is going to be to go ahead and take out this bolt on both sides of the frame. And then I will run it back in. It basically cleans the threads out themselves. A quick footnote, when removing this bolt if you have an older model vehicle that has seen a few winters there is a good chance that there is corrosion built up on the top side of that bolt. So you want to go ahead, if you are having trouble getting the bolt out do not force it. Get it out as far as you can. You can can, try to spray some WD40 through this access hole onto the top of the bolt to give it some lubricant there to help it get out. Otherwise, if you force it too much you could snap the weld nut inside the frame. Now that we have the 2 rear bolts removed from the frame, we want to go ahead and put the hitch back up into position so we know where to mark the holes. We want to re use the bolts that we just took out of the frame. Then I am going to go ahead and hand tighten those up and then we are going to drill out the holes in the rear now. Alight, we have the hitch up into position now and we are going to go ahead and drill out the forward most holes. Again on 2001 and newer models this hole is existing so you can go ahead and skip this step in the procedure. I am going to start by drilling a 1/4 inch pilot hole and then we are going to enlarge that to a 1/2 inch. Now that we have that hole drilled in the forward most location, we want to go ahead and fish the bolts through the frame to mount in these locations. The carriage bolt and block are going to go in both locations on both sides. We are going to use this bolt leader here, to fish them through the frame to get them into position. And what we want to do here is take the bolt leader, run it through the access hole and we are going to fish it to the end of the frame back behind the bumper. It is kind of hard to see hear but if you feel up into the frame here there is a hole here. It will actually feed through and out. You can kind of see that there. The bolt leader is coming out now and, with that in position, we want to put the block on first over the bolt leader. We want to be careful that we do not pull it through too much or this comes out of position.

2005 chevy colorado (with a nice surprise)
this truck has had a couple new little things to it.... such as a LS2 corvette engine





► 2015 Chevy Colorado WORLD PREMIERE
The 2.5L and 3.6L engines offered in the Colorado are based on proven designs found in other Chevrolet vehicles, but tuned uniquely for truck duty -- including more torque at lower rpm -- for a more confident feeling of power when the Colorado is loaded or pulling a trailer. The 2.5L four is estimated at 193 horsepower (146 kW) and 184 lb-ft of torque (253 Nm), with approximately 90 percent of the peak torque available from 2,000 rpm to 6,200 rpm. The 3.6L engine is estimated at 302 horsepower (224 kW) and 270 lb-ft of torque (366 Nm). SAE certification of the power ratings is pending. Aluminum blocks and forged-steel crankshafts, along with dual-overhead camshafts with variable valve timing, direct injection and jet-spray piston cooling are features shared on both engines. A number of extended-life components can help reduce maintenance intervals and reduce the cost of ownership. All models are matched with a six-speed automatic that complements the truck-tuned engines with features that make hauling and trailering easier and more comfortable, including auto grade braking and a tow/haul mode. Chevrolet will continue to work on and develop the Colorado until the start of production in 2014. The content of this release is based on current GM testing and is subject to change. ► SUBSCRIBE NOW: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=youcarpress ► FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/youcarpress ► TWITTER: http://www.twitter.com/youcartv ► GOOGLE+: http://plus.google.com/+YouCarPress





2015 Chevy Colorado: Almost Everything You Ever Wanted to Know
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The 2015 Chevy Colorado marks the return of Chevrolet into the highly competitive small truck segment. Until this year the Japanese truck manufacturers with the Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma have owned this market in the United States as Ford has stopped selling the iconic ranger in the U.S. In another accurate, informative and fun TFLTruck video we get to know almost everything you ever wanted to know about the 2015 Chevy Colorado.

2015 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 -- PickupTrucks.com Video Review
We had the chance to spend a little time with the new 2015 Chevy Colorado Z71 off-road package, and we liked what we saw. This isn't a perfect midsize pickup, but it's a solid entry into a segment that's been ignored too long. Many of the design and engineering lessons learned from the 2014 Silverado 1500 have been incorporated into the Colorado, which should play into its favor. Take a look.





2015 Chevy Colorado Diesel Revealed Los Angeles Auto Show
The all new Colorado available Fall 2014.The 2.8L turbo-diesel is rated at 180 horsepower (132 kW) and 346 lb.-ft. of torque (470 Nm) with an available six-speed automatic transmission. Downside is that it will have a timing belt and likely be a 4k option.
