I have one of those new Dodge Ram 2500..year 2013 where you could not find the brackets for a 5th wheel that would fit this anywhere. After a year of searching found it with " etrailer"...had my doubts it would line up with the pre drilled holes but it lined up perfectly and went in without a hitch..no pun intended..also the sales Lady knew what she was talking about....great product and excellent service 130650


Comments

Tammie with etrailer is awesome!!!! There was a problem with my original order and Tammie took it upon herself to make it right. Main thing was when she was made aware that the mix up with my original order was gonna affect my 23rd anniversary, she made sure my order was over night to me at no charge to me. Her attention to customer service speaks volumes about her and is an asset to e-trailer. I have done business with etrailer in the past and will be my go to for all my trailer needs. 449086

As far as the Ram 3500 models, part # C16420
Curt Custom, No-Drill Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit for Dodge Ram
$136.33
is for 2003-2012, which is the one you would need. Part # C16426
Curt Custom 5th Wheel Bracket Kit for Dodge Ram
$117.37
is for 2013-2014 Ram 3500. These two brackets will also fit certain 1500 and 2500 models. You should also check out part C16420-204. This is the brackets bundled with the bed rails that you will need to complete the install. Then your fifth wheel will just drop into the rails.

Ask the Experts about this Curt Accessories and Parts
Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Will Curt Fifth Wheel Install Kit fit 2014 Ram 1500?
  • The Curt Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit # C16426 was designed for Ram 2500 and 3500 models from 2013 on. There are fifth wheel hitches which are going to work with the 2014 Ram 1500 that require their own install rails. For example, your '14 Ram 1500, regardless of bed size, could use Curt Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16444-204 along with a Curt hitch such as the Curt Q20 # C16536. I've added links to a couple review videos for you to take a look at.

  • Compatibility of the Curt 16426 Bracket Kit With Curt 16200 Rails
  • I reached out to my tech contact at Curt. I was able to confirm the base rails you mentioned, the Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails with Installation Kit - Carbide Black Finish, # C16200, are compatible with the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Bracket Kit for Dodge Ram, # C16426. You may also want the Replacement Hardware for Curt Universal 5th Wheel Installation Kit - 10 Bolt, # C16111.

  • Curt 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit for a 2014 Ram 2500
  • For a 2014 Ram 2500 short or long bed the correct Curt 5th wheel installation kit is # C16427-204. If you already have the Curt rails and just need the brackets use # C16427. I have linked installation instructions and a video showing installation for you.

  • Availability of 5th Wheel Frame Brackets to Install Pullrite 2900 on a 2015 Ram 3500
  • The Pullrite 2900 is designed for industry standard 5th wheel rails, so it would work with the Curt # C16426-204 install kit you mentioned. For just the frame brackets and hardware, you'd need part # C16426. However, because the Curt frame brackets and your existing bed rails (assuming they weren't manufactured by Curt) have not been tested together, so their capacity as a unit would be unknown. This is why we recommend using bed rails and frame brackets from the same manufacturer so...

  • Advice for Torquing Front Installation Bolts for Curt Fifth Wheel Installation Kit part # C16426
  • I spoke to my contact at Curt about the issue you are having installing the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Bracket Kit # C16426 on your 2013 Ram 2500 and he said that you will need to get the 110 ft lbs on the front bolts. He said that your only options are to find a different torque wrench, possibly one with crows feet so that you can get in there better. In some situations with the Curt rail kits we have found that you can't always get the hardware torqued due to limited space.

  • Under Bed Brackets for Reese 5th Wheel Rails on a 2014 Ram 2500 Mega Cab Short Bed
  • The Curt brackets that will fit your 2014 Ram 2500 short bed are # C16427. The other one, # C16426, will not fit. But since you have Reese rails we do not recommend mixing bracket and rail manufacturers. The capacity and compatibility is unknown and would void the warranties. For Reese brackets you can use # RP50054 and you would need to add hardware kit # RP58430. 5th wheel trailer hitch install kit hardware is not meant to be reused which is why the hardware kit is needed.

  • Will 5th Wheel Brackets from 2015 Ram 2500 Fit 2016 Ram 3500 Truck
  • The fifth wheel brackets we have available for your 2016 Ram 3500, such as the Curt # C16426, are also a confirmed fit for the 2015 Ram 2500. This means that there was not a significant design change between the two model year trucks to make the same kits incompatible. The brackets you removed from your 2015 Ram should work perfectly with your 2016 Ram truck. I just recommend using new hardware for the brackets and rails, as the installation hardware is designed only for one time use....

  • Compatibility of Husky 16K Slider Hitch with Curt Custom Bracket Kit # C16426 for 2006 Dodge Ram
  • The Curt Custom 5th Wheel Bracket Kit for Dodge Ram # C16426 that you referenced is not a fit for your 2006 Ram 2500 4X4 short bed and even if it were we do not recommend mixing different brands of base rails and under-bed brackets. There can be fit/compatibility issues between parts from different manufacturers. I suggest you use a Husky brand custom install kit for your 2006 Dodge Ram short bed to ensure glitch-free compatibility with your Husky hitch. You can use # HT31565-686 which...

  • No Drill 5th Wheel Mounting Brackets Only for a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 Short Bed
  • There are several custom 5th wheel install kits that will fit your 2003 Ram 1500 short bed that do not require drilling into the truck frame to install. Just to be clear drilling down through the bed will be required for any kit. For brackets and hardware only, no rails, you can use # C16419. I have linked the instructions for you.
