B&W 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation - 2004 Dodge Ram Pickup

Today, on this 2004 Dodge Ram pickup 2500 Series QuadCab, we're will be installing the B&W custom under-bed 5th-wheel installation kit, part number BWGNRK1313-5W. This kit is designed to work with the B&W 5th-wheel Companion hitch, part number BWRVK3500-5W. This can also be used as a Gooseneck hitch if needed. We're going to first go ahead and lower down and set aside the spare tire. Next, we're going to go ahead and remove both of the rear wheels just to make our installation a little bit easier and allow you to see things a little bit easier as well. Next, we're going to need to measure from the rear edge of the bed, right there, as part of the instructions. .



Fifth Wheel Installation - 2012 Dodge Ram

Today on our 2012 Dodge Ram pickup we'll be installing the Curt custom fifth wheel installation kit, part number c16420-204. To begin our install first note we've already gone ahead and lowered and removed the spare tire and both rear wheels. Next we'll need to remove the heat shield. To do this there are a total of five fasteners that will need to be removed. We'll go ahead and remove the fasteners, and set the fasteners and heat shield aside to be reinstalled later. Using the measurements provided with our installation kit, we'll be taking the rear base rail and set it into position.



Fifth Wheel Hitch Installation - 2002 Dodge Ram

Today on this 2002 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Series, were gonna install part number RP30035.Well start it off by removing the rear wheels. You dont have to do that but it makes things easier to install. Plus, you also have to remove the inner fender liners as well. Those are riveted in place so we had to drill those out. Weve also removed the spare tire additional base if we need.Now our next step would be to go ahead and start placing the rails in the bed of the truck. There are certain dimension you have to go by.



Fifth Wheel Hitch Kit Installation - 2009 Dodge Ram 3500 Series Mega Cab

Today on this 2009 Dodge Ram 3500 Series Mega Cab we will be installing the signature series rail kit part number 30074. The first thing we want to do in preparation to installing our cross members under the bed is to remove our spare tire and get it out of the way so we have some more working room. The cross members we are going to be installing are going to be sitting in between the two hat channels right above the exhaust and over top of the gas tank as well. On standard models you can follow the directions to fit the cross members in from underneath the bed and just manipulate them into position. However on this mega cab model the spacing is not there for us to do that so what I am going to do is loosen up the bed and slide the cross members in from the outside of the frame directly across over the top. 00:48





Dodge Ram Pickup Fifth Wheel Questions and Answers


  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2015 Ram 2500 Short Bed Hitch Prep
  • I attached a link to the right that shows all of the confirmed 5th wheel hitch fits for your 2015 Ram 2500 short bed with a hitch prep package. Since you have a short bed you will need a slider hitch to let you make tight turns. For that I would recommend the # RP30075. For a rail kit to fit your underbed rail kit you will need the # RP30154.

  • When the Curt Q Series Hitch Jaw Are Unlocked will They Open Up When Trailer King Pin Is Present
  • When you go to disconnect from the king pin of your trailer with the Curt Q20 fifth wheel hitch part # C16536 you will need to pull out on the handle to release the jaws of the hitch. Since the spring pressure of the jaw mechanism isn't powerful enough to move either your truck forward or the trailer back the king pin will stay in the same position and the jaws may not move much. Pulling forward at this time with the truck will allow the king pin to slide forward and the jaws of the hitch...

  • Best Way to Tow Fifth Wheel Trailer With 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 With Factory Tow Prep Package
  • In my opinion, the best way to tow a fifth wheel trailer with your 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 with the OEM fifth wheel prep package is to use a fifth wheel hitch that fits the in-bed pucks in your truck bed. You have several hitch options that will work, but my favorite is the B&W Companion 25K Fifth Wheel Hitch, # BWRVK3600. This hitch will drop right into the pucks in the truck bed and once it is removed, you will have full access to your bed. Curt also makes fifth wheel hitches for the...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2015 Ram 3500 Dually Long Bed w/ Factory Tow Prep Package
  • The Reese # RP30054 hitch you mentioned is intended to be bolted directly to the frame of a cab and chassis truck, so it wouldn't be a good choice for your Ram 3500 with the OEM tow prep kit. Curt and B&W both offer hitches that will drop right into the existing factory pucks in your truck bed. The Curt # C16545-16021 has a 24,000 lb capacity, while the B&W # BWRVK3600 offers a 25,000 lb capacity. Either hitch would be an excellent choice for you, but I'd give the B&W product a slight...

  • Concerns About Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Dodge Ram 3500 Equipped with a Goose Neck Hitch
  • There are several ways to adapt a 5th wheel trailer to enable it to be towed with a truck that has a goose neck hitch installed. The best choice for you will depend on how often you need to change between trailer types. Some of the adapters that allow this flexibility will put more stress on the trailer frame than other types. Options are still somewhat limited for newer vehicles like your 2014 Ram. The best method is to replace the pin box on your 5th wheel with a compatible goose box...

It is rated for 25,000 pounds so it can handle your 10K trailer without issues. One person can remove the hitch. You will need to first remove the head from the base and then remove the base.

Unfortunately the old models of the Hijacker fifth wheel hitch will not work with the 2014 Ram 2500. The older Hijacker hitches used their own mounting brackets and base rails that were exclusive to their hitches. Since the hitches were redesigned, the old style frame brackets and rails were discontinued. We do have several other trailer hitch...

The bed liner will most likely have to be trimmed away in the foot print of the rails plus a little extra to account for the pins to secure the 5th wheel hitch. Slide-in bed liners need to be trimmed but spray-in bed liners do not. For your 2014 Ram 3500 short bed you can use Curt installation kit # C16426-204....

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch Install Kit to Install Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch in 2014 Ram 2500

A custom kit uses existing holes in the frame eliminating the need to drill through the frame. This can save hours of install time. If you don't already have a 7-way installed in your truck bed, you can install one using part # 50-97-410. You can see an install video by clicking the provided link.

  • Can a 5th Wheel Hitch be Installed in a 2014 Dodge Ram with Rambox
  • The issue with the Rambox is that the manufacturers of hitches and installation kits have not tested for fit on models with the Rambox. The issue is the bed is more narrow on models that have the Rambox feature. We have heard customers who have installed 5th wheel hitches in Rambox models. But they have to use Sidewinder replacement pin boxes to move the trailer pivot point back so as not to hit the stock pin box against the bed sides.

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2014 Dodge Ram that has the Factory Prep Package

If you end up using an adapter that secures to the pin box you will want to check with the trailer manufacturer to make sure that you can use it. Since there are no 5th wheel trailers that fit the OEM prep package on the 2014 Rams, you would need to use an adapter, # RP30154, that you mentioned. It will accept any hitches that fit in industry standard above the bed rails. This is the better option.
