I want to install an auto-slider hitch in my F350, 6-3/4 bed, diesel, 2wd to pull a 35, 12,000 lb.gvw trailer. Will the factory hitch prep option 53W allow fitment of say, a PullRite 4100? Thanks

In order to use a trailer hitch that fits in regular above the bed rails in the Ford prep package, you will need to use a special adapter, # RP30156. Any 5th wheel hitches, including sliders, that fit in standard Reese above the bed rails, will fit in this adapter. I have included a link to the installation details for you to view.
I have also included a picture that shows the Reese rail dimensions that are important for determining if another hitch will fit in them and the adapter. Pullrite does have a line of hitches called the ISR series that fit in the Reese raise. If it is one of these ISR hitches, it will fit.
