Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 Chevrolet Colorado - etrailer.com
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.
Chevy Colorado, V-led Switchback White/Amber
Sing Credit: Switchfoot, The Sound (John M. Perkins' Blues). Off the new
Hello Hurricane Album. Nov 10th 2009
Ok, a few days ago I placed comments and questions about white LED vs red
LED in our tailights, etc. Well, I purchased the TYPE 2 DUAL COLOR CHANGING
HID 6K WHITE AMBER SWITCHBACK 92 M-SMT 3157 from v-leds.com and replaced my
rear turn signals/parking lights with them. The video is not the best
quality to show the true color difference but its ok.
Basically the parking lights are look red and when the signals are on, it
changes to amber... even through the red lens.
I also put the HID WHITE 6 LED 2825 lights in for my license plate lights.
And put SUPER HID WHITE 9 LED LIGHT BULBS 921 912 in for my work lights and
3rd brake light.
I of course got the resisters and I did not think about taking the pictures
of the install of the mount plates, etc. I will be updating the Brake/Tail
lights with the all white version of the HID 92 M-SMT lights later so maybe
I will get pictures then.
I also plan on changing out my amber light up front to the AMBER 92 M-SMT
Led as well.
But now here is my video.
Chevy Colorado - 1st Responder Vehicle, Front II
This is an updated video of the earlier version. Added lights are a blue
and a clear TIR3 LED's(sync) to the upper portion of the grille and a
mid-mount, blue/clear dash light made by Nova. The dash light was
originally located in the bed mounted to the tonneau cover, the light was
swapped out with blue/amber linear LED's that will be featured soon.
