4 Pickup and Hitch Advances

These add-ons simplify hauling and towing chores.

1. bed drawers hold 125 pounds each

Featuring no-drill installation, the Pickup Vault provides two drawers that extend the length of a pickup bed (46 to 94 inches). Each 5⅝-inch-deep drawer holds up to 125 pounds. The top surface of the A.R.E. Pickup Vault can support up to 2,000 pounds of cargo and an adjustable tie-down system. Features include a bulb-sealed drawer, folding compression locks, and a lifetime warranty. 

2. receiver hitch lock works off one key

BOLT locks are designed to allow a single vehicle ignition key to be programmed to open any number of different BOLT locks, reducing the need for multiple keys. The BOLT ⅝-inch Receiver Lock works on Class III, IV, and V hitches as well as 2- and 2½-inch square receivers. The BOLT Padlock features a hardened steel shackle sheltered inside a durable, protective rubber shell. 

3. 5,000 pounds of added load capacity

Engineered for heavy loads on ½- and ¾-ton pickups, the LoadLifter 5000 air spring kits are for late-model Ford F-250s and F-350s. The air springs are designed to fit both single and dual rear-wheel vehicles. The air springs work with a vehicle’s existing suspension to provide up to 5,000 additional pounds of load-leveling capacity, and they are air adjustable to keep vehicles level whether loaded or unloaded. The kit includes roll plates that increase load capacity up to 10%. Air Lifts carry a lifetime warranty. 

4. quick-clamping bucket hitch

The Clamp On Trailer Hitch readily attaches to any loader bucket, providing up to a 600-pound capacity for moving trailers. The top vise manually clamps down on the top of the bucket blade, while the back vise provides adjustment so that the hitch can fit different bucket blade depths. The manufacturer also offers Clamp On Loader Forks for loader buckets that provide an 1,800-pound load capacity.
