I had a Husky EZ roller fifth wheel hitch in a 2004 Dodge Ram Quad cab 2500 short bed. I sold the truck and just purchased a new 2011 Ford F-150 Super cab 5.6inch bed. I kept the hitch but left the mounting hardware with the Dodge. I need new mounting hardware for my Husky 16K EZ roller. Is that doable?

We do have an installation kit that will work with your Husky EZ roller and your 2011 Ford F-150 Super Cab w/ 5.6 bed. You will need the Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit, RP30035-426.
In addition to the installation kit, it is required to use a Sidewinder King Pin, so that you have clearance to make sharp turns since you have a 5-1/2 foot bed. A Sidewinder moves the pivot point of the trailer connection rearward and will provide an additional 22 inches of clearance.
In order to choose the correct Sidewinder, you will need the pin box manufacturer and model number. This information will typically be located on a sticker or stamping on the OEM pinbox. I have linked an FAQ page that will have information on Sidewinders, and a table that lists what Sidewinder to use with what brand of pin box.
Also, since you have a sliding fifth-wheel hitch, it must always remain locked in the most forward position to be used with a Sidewinder.
