Thank you for providing the photos of your 2014 Ram 3500 dually.
I am not sure what brackets you have tried previously, but perhaps they were part of a universal 5th wheel install kit that requires drilling into the vehicle frame.
We do offer a custom bracket 5th wheel installation kit for the 2014 Ram 3500 SLT without the factory rail system. Kit # C16426-204 from Curt includes custom frame brackets that install to existing holes in the truck frame using included hardware and without need for drilling into the frame. The kit includes base rails that will accept industry-standard 5th wheel hitches from Reese and others, including your Reese 20K hitch.
For reference I have linked the installation instructions for this 5th wheel base rail kit as well as an article concerning helpful tips for hitch installation.
