Video Transcript for Curt Accessories and Parts C16420 Review

Today we're going to review part number C16420. This is the Curt custom no-drill bracket kit for the Dodge Ram. This part is a custom fit part number. It is designed to fit the 2006 to 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 Mega Cab and also the 2003 to 2012 Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 models. Now, this is a custom fit part number and any time when a custom fit part number I would recommend to always go to our website and go to our fit guide and put in your year and model vehicle and it will tell you exactly if this part would work on your vehicle. Now, this part includes the brackets and all of the mounting hardware that's required. Now, these brackets will mount beneath your truck bed to provide attachment parts for the fifth wheel rails.

Now, the fifth wheel rails are sold separately. It does require the Curt base rails, which are part number either C16104 or the C16204, and those are listed on this product page as related products. Now, this will provide a custom fit by mounting to existing holes in your vehicle's frame, so it does eliminate the need for drilling. And because of that, it will cut the installation time in half, when compared with the universal bracket kits. And again, it includes all the necessary hardware, a nice set of instructions. And the finish on the brackets is a nice black powder coat finish, to help resist corrosion.

Again, it includes the four brackets and all the mounting hardware and instructions. But that should do it for the review on part number C15420, the Curt custom no-drill fifth wheel bracket kit for the Dodge Ram vehicle. .

The Curt 16420 kit I purchased was just as advertised. The service was outstanding, everyone I spoke with was very courteous and helpful to the extreme. Wayne, Dana and Steve met all my needs and offered extended help. Unfortunately the kit did not match up to the unit I have. It fit my vehicle but the hitch rails were not compatible with the kit. I will certainly use for my future needs. 163665


It is working fine and I actually could use another one , but dont have the assets to do it at the moment. Thanks for the follow-up.

Needed this kit quick for 800 mile trip to PA where I was to purchase our 5th wheel toyhauler and drive back to TN. Lisa D from Etrailer assisted. Actually she spent a lot of time making sure part would be correct fitment and arrive on time. She hit the mark and plan went down splendidly. Quality of kit is very heavy duty and well built. The only thing odd was from Curt. Their videos and advice of installation were kind of weird since they have you drilling holes in truck bed then checking to see if hardware matched up. Not me, I measured several times and got all the holes right first time around. It’s a solid setup for my Ram 2500 that’s capable of pulling more than my truck can handle. Exhaust hanger on my truck rubs the bracket just a bit but could be ground down if I was concerned. Thanks Lisa D. for sticking through my order and getting it right all for a relatively small purchase. My family and I will be safer for your recommendations. Take Care. 488706

Fit well, instructions were great. video on youtube was priceless. I would recomend this product for the same application any day. 2004 dodge ram 2500 quad-cummins (larger tank than gasser?). no problem with clearance. 57900


Still working as it should. am impressed not with the ease of install but the product design of form fit and function. installation could prob. not be made easier but it is a task that needs to be done by mechanically inclined person.

This is my first install into a dodge and it went by the directions. I needed to be exact to the measurements or it would've missed the designed location around the front bed rail and not landed in the center of the rear bed rail. Fishing the plates and bolts thru the frame rail and the spacers into the rear bed rail was a added challenge and definelty a under estimate on the time factor for the first time. 90 minutes only for the experienced installer. All the needed hardware was included minus the bed rails. 132712

The product I ordered was exactly what I needed at a much cheaper price than I could find anywhere else. It doesn’t get much easier than direct bolt on parts. Shipping was fast and easy with no hassle. 481053
