Video Transcript for Trimming a Truck Bed Liner for Fifth Wheel Rails

Today were going to cover a frequently asked question on how to cut out a bed liner for a fifth wheel installation. Its pretty easy, well measure for our cross rails just like normal and then well go ahead and mark out our bed liner. Measuring from the edge of the bed of the truck, not the bed liner, but the edge of the bed and measure out. Well go do one side, well go to the other side and make a mark as well. Now those will be the marks thatll align our first rail way. Well make sure that our rail is even from left to right.

Well just use the ribs in the bed liner to align it with and then well just draw a circle all the way around the rails. Then next well go ahead and use the legs of the fifth wheel hitch to place our second rail and now this will put our rail basically in the right stop and well just draw an outline around it as well and then the next step is go ahead and remove the parts for the fifth wheel and remove the bed liner and we can go ahead and cut out what we need. Before we make our cut outs well go ahead and support the bed liner up in the air a little bit with a couple pieces of timber. Well go ahead and drill some pilot holes for a saw were going to use to make the final cut out. So lets take our saw and well trace on the outside of our line and just cut it out.

Alright, and from this point we can go ahead with the fifth wheel install as normal.

Reese 5th wheel hitch bed rails I have bought a couple of items from etrailer over the last year. Their shipping is very fast and I have found their products to be just as advertised. Good brand name products (like the Reese universal base rails) at great prices. Why go anywhere else?4863

I have purchased from etrailer before and each time I have been extremely satisfied. The latest purchase was for my universal base rails for my fifth wheel. I purchased a newer truck and my old system would not fit the new truck. I received my order on time and in great shape. I will not hesitate to buy again from etrailer.123072

overall a good package however, if the rails were 46" the (L) brackets could be turned facing out and would make install 100% easier on GM trucks trying to get the nuts started was absolutely miserable, (L) brackets were on top of the frame120901

Was very impressed with the shipping speed of my rails and hitch. Install was pretty straight forward, the written instructions are not the best but having the video made it go that much quicker. Brake controller, trailer wiring harness, rails and hitch took about 5 hours to install. Will for sure be using eTrailer again for my needs. My only problem was the pro series hitch, I had to open up the metal brace slightly to fit on the sliders.120070

The kit arrived very quickly, in fact shipping was moved from "5 to 7 days" to "3 to 5 days"and arrived in 5 day. During Christmas rush this was great, and really appreciated. I ask a technician friend to install it for me. It went together very nicely. I am rating this as EXCELLENT, do to the ease of installation an the escallation of the shipping arrangement. Thank You for a great product and great service. LGK satisfied customer 111867

The rails are solid and work as expected. Unfortunately it was not clear to me from the description at that "universal" meant that you need to drill through the frame to install and that there was a custom bracket available as an alternative that lines up with existing holes in the frame. While they were very helpful and willing to do a return, the cost of shipping the new product and returning the old made the whole transaction a costly mistake.106438


Comments

Im planing to buy the same rails for my dodge diesel 2005 full box but do not want to make the same mistake so what kind of bracket and are they a must or makes it safer? thanks

comment by: Sid - 12/31/2013

The brackets are not necessarily safer, but they are easier to install. They require less, and in some cases, no drilling through the frame in order to install. For a 2005 Ram 2500 with 8 foot bed, you would use part RP50140-58. This kit includes the custom fit brackets that attach to the frame as well as the rails that sit in the bed of the truck where the fifth wheel secures. No matter what, you will need to drill through the bed on any of these kits. I have also included a link to a video of this kit being installed on a 2006 Ram.

Follow instruction very easy to install. Works well with my hitch. Took more time reading instruction than installing on truck. Drilling whole in the bed of the truck wanted to make sure I understood what I was doing before drilling. Installed on a 93 Chevy Crew Cab Dually, long bed. Truck sat high enought that I did not have to raise it up or remove the tires whick cut down on the istallation time greatly.82020

Received the rails for my Dodge truck and had no problems installing them. The shipping was fast and had to call Support because I needed a new bolt. They took care of me and sent me a new one out next day. That's what I call service. It's good to have a company that still believes in great customer service. Thank you for a great experience. 71142

Was not too bad to install. Would have been easier if I had the brackets welded to frame rather than drill and bolt. Just remember to put brakets, that are just setting on the frame, in a safe place when you have to drive off during instalation. Those brackets are hard to find along side the road.61842

I purchased this hitch kit along with a set of mirrors. I was surprised that my shipment was upgraded to a faster arrival date for no additional fee-but then the shipment arrived one day early! Great service from etrailer, thank you. I have audited the parts in the shipment and found them to be all there (and quite strong appearing), but I haven't been able to get to the installation just yet. With included instructions and hardware I expect no problem with the installation. Overall, very happy with the product and the service.44976

This was the first 5th wheel hitch I've installed and it was Pretty easy and done with in four hours. on my08 F250 I had to switch around the brackets to make it fit just as it said. Only draw back was on the passenger side where it didn't line up just right. Very simple modification and it's in. The video did help as a guide. 21698

Thanks for the video I am a Tech and have never installed the 30035 kit. I was able to watch the video prior to install and this allowed me to get all the tools together and installed the rails with the hitch 30047 in about 2.5 hours. I think it is a great thing that you post these videos.... The truck I did was a 2007 F350 which was very similar to the 2004 F250 in the video... Thanks. RJ4850
