Today we're going to take a look at the DEMCO 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for the Ram OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package. This has a 25,000 pound weight capacity. This adapter is perfect if you want to use your standard 5th wheel trailer hitch with your Ram Truck factory installed Under-bed 5th Wheel Mounting Kit. Basically, you just mount this adapter in your under-bed rails using the OEM integrated pucks that are in your truck bed, and then lock it in place with these included locking tabs. Once you do that then you'll have a standard above that base rail system that's needed to install your 5th wheel hitch to. There is no drilling or welding required to install this. This part is a rust resistant black, powder coat steel construction. It is made in the USA.

A few specs on this. The application, again, is for Ram trucks with the OEM Under-bed 5th Wheel Mounting Kit, maximum Capacity is 25,000 pounds, and this part comes with everything shown here. Has a nice set of detailed instructions that describe how to install it, with pictures, and the bolts that are used to bolt these to the adapter plate. Basically, what you want to do is access the truck bed on your Ram. You do need to remember that on the Ram it does have different sized tabs on the front and the rear of the vehicle, so the pucks will also be different size, except with different size tabs. What you want to do is make sure the adapter plate is put into the tuck bed in the right position.

They do that by putting this label on it, and it will have on here an arrow pointing this way and it will say "cab," so you want to make sure the cab is here. Then these would be your rear pucks. These would be your front ones. Again, they're different size. What you want to do is lay this over the pucks, take off the .. There'll be plugs in your puck in the truck bed.

Take those plugs out. Lay this over the pucks then what you want to do . To show you the difference in the tabs, you can see here what they've done is color coated them. You can see the difference just by the color. The gold ones are longer, the silver ones are shorter. Silver ones will be what's on the front, closest to the cab.

Those you can just drop right in, like that. Make sure it lines up into the pucks and drops all the way down. Then on the rear one, they are longer, so what you want to make sure, is take your locking pin out, then just turn your handle to where it's . This is flush right here. See how it turns and it's flush What you want to do . this is so it drops all the way into the puck, is just put it in through the hold and then just turn the base to where the holes will line up. Your hand will need to be turned like that, that will line them so drop them all the way into the pucks. Once they drop all the way in, then just turn it, and that'll lock it all the way into the pucks. You'll do that on the other side also. Once it's locked in to where you need it correctly, then take your bolt, and bolt down the base plate. Do that on all four corners. Then you'll be ready to go. Put your locking pin back in. Then you're all locked in, ready to go. If you go to remove it all you have to do is just rotate that handle, on each of the four corners, then you'll be able to lift the whole thing out. Simple as that. That should do it, for the review on the DEMCO 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for the Ram OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package with a 25,000 pound weight capacity.

This is an excellent product. It arrived 1 day after ordering it. It had very good instructions that were easy to follow. It only took me 20 minutes to install. It fit tight, but perfectly. It will be the perfect base for the Demco autoslider that I'm going to put on it. I'm using it in my 2018 Ram 2500 Crew cab to pull a Keystone Cougar Half ton fifth wheel. 515146

Purchase this for my 2017 Dodge Ram 2500 with the fifth wheel prep package. Outstanding part and easy to install!!! Fast shipping had this part within three days! My only complaint is that UPS was not easy on the shipping box that the frame come in. Could have more shipping cardbroad used on the corners of the frame inside shipping the box. etrailers.com was a great website to order from totally happy this order and will use in the future! Thank You! 437004

The DM6099 was delivered two days in advance and had all parts included. This unit replaces the two rails which are installed in many of the earlier models. My 2017 Dodge 2500 came from the factory with 5th wheel / gooseneck towing prep group which allows for easy removal allowing you to have a flat bed with no obstructions. Over all a great improvement for the RV community. Thank you etrailer for providing a great product. 407938

Very happy with the product. The only draw back is the weight. Can't be loaded/unloaded by one person. A good cross-sell opportunity is to offer a tool for removal. When I first got it, it didn't fit the truck. Support team was helpful and responsive. It seemed to be due to the bed spray. I was able to get it to mount perfectly by loosening a bolt under the truck, and then smoothing the edges of the locks in the rails. 352377

2017 3500 Ram Megacab short box dually 4×4, factory 5 wheel kit, very easy install, use it for my 20,000 lb superglide hitch. Nice thing is I can remove adapter and hitch all together. Only bad is the box it is ship in is way to flimsy,the corners had the paint chipped off, reason for the 4 RATING. Despite cheap packing it is a great product, highly recommended, just remember it's heavy , 464247

The adapter was shipped within a few days of ordering it and arrived three days later. The step by step instructions were very easy to follow and the installation didn't take long at all. My hitch fit perfectly and the hitch and adapter can be removed all together. I would recommend this adapter to anyone owning a 5th wheel. Thank you Etrailer. 383855

Was bad at first cause I had to re-tap 3 bolts cause the threads were damaged I guess from the factory and one bolt was totally different. Box came with two corners ripped open and all four tabs that u lock the pins In to were bent . When you spent that much money on a product you should have to fix it . 2 stars cause of the problems 522482

The customer service was outstanding getting exactly what I needed. The product is very good, but the instructions were limited. I did get on You Tube for additional help and I was able to get it all set in and working for pulling my trailer. This adapter did exactly what I needed for my older 5th wheel hitch and my new Dodge. 518729

Did not line up with pucks in my truck bed and there is no adjustability for fabrication tolerances. I had to enlarge the mounting holes slightly so it would align better and release properly. It still takes a little wiggling and force to get it to release the pucks. 461548


Comments

Ralph,Demco does allow for a bit of back and forth adjustability during the installation of this adapter. The locking socket drivers that attach to the locking tabs on the adapter have elongated holes for fitment purposes. These elongated holes should allow you to install it to align with the factory puck system in your truck bed.Thank you.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2016 Ram 3500 with Factory Installed 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • There are actually several hitches available now that fit directly into the 2016 Ram factory OEM prep package. There is also an option to use a special adapter if you already have a hitch or if you plan on getting a slider hitch (for short bed trucks). The hitches that fit directly are: # BWRVK3600, rated for 25K # C16545-16021, rated for 24K # C16530-16021, rated for 20K # C16520-16021, rated for 16K, dual jaw # C16515-16021, rated for 16K, slide-bar jaw You can also use adapter...

  • Recommended Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for 2018 Ram 2500 Short Bed Pickup with Factory Prep
  • In your short-bed Ram 3500 that has the factory rail kit the available slider-type 5th wheel hitches offer slider travel that ranges from 8- to 14-inches. All are shown on the linked page. Single-jaw designs often have less rattle and they also typically have fewer parts, which can be considered advantages. But certain dual jaw hitches can still be considered superior to certain single-jaw types. B&W makes superb products like their Companion 5th wheel slider # BWRVK3670 which will...

This will allow you to have a clean bed when not in use and easily install this hitch that is capable of pulling your 13000 lb loaded trailer with MORyde pin box. You may also be interested in the 5th Wheel wiring harness # C56000, to put a second 7 way in the bed of your truck for easy accessibility. If you have...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2016 Ram 2500 Short Bed with Factory Prep Package
  • For a 5th wheel hitch that fits directly into the factory 5th wheel prep package in your 2016 Ram 2500 you can use B&W hitch # BWRVK3600. But on a short bed truck even the mounting range of the B&W hitch head might not provide enough clearance to make tight turns safely. What I recommend is to use Demco adapter # DM6099 which fits in the Ram factory prep package. This will act as a base for the Demco HiJacker, # DM8550035, rated for 21,000 pounds. Another benefit is that this hitch slides...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2016 RAM 3500 Short Bed w/ Puck System Towing 2015 Cedar Creek
  • Although many trailer manufacturers are now designing their trailers with the tapered fronts to be more aerodynamic and also to help increase turning clearance, our hitch manufacturers are still going to recommend using a hitch with a slider opposed to a stationary hitch. Using a slider helps to compensate for the reduced turning clearance on a short bed pickup. Since your 2016 Ram 3500 will be equipped with the puck system, I recommend going with the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch...

  • Demco's 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ram # DM6099 will fit in the OEM puck system in the bed of your 2016 Ram 2500 Megacab and provide the equivalent of industry-standard above-bed base rails that will accept a 5th wheel hitch from Reese like your fixed type 16K model # RP30047. If you also need a 5th wheel wiring harness for the bed of the truck you can use part # 50-97-410.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ram 3500 Short Bed with Factory Rail Kit
  • The rail kits for the 2017 Ram 3500 resemble a very spread out version of the Reese Elite fifth wheel underbed rail kits. We have adapters that allow standard fifth wheel hitches to fit the rail kits but nothing that fits directly. Since your truck is a short bed you will have to use a slider hitch to allow you to make tight turns. Since activating a slider everytime you get to a parking lot is a bit of a hassle I like to recommend the auto sliding Demco Hijacker part # DM8550035. This...

  • Good news, I can help you find what you need for your 2016 Ram 2500. The Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # RP30154 will allow you to mount a sliding hitch like the 20K Reese # RP30870 in it. This 20K hitch will accommodate your toy haulers hitch weight better than a 16K hitch would. It is important to note that this setup may still not give you the turning clearance you are looking for and you could instead go with a fixed hitch like # PS30121 and a Sidewinder, like the one that fits...

This will give you a slider base to use with your factory system and current hitch head.

  • The Demco Hijacker AutoSlide part # DM8550034 is a great hitch for your 2017 Ram 2500 short bed with the factory rail kit. It does require the adapter part # DM6099 to be used like you referenced. The hitch as a total is pretty heavy at 273 lbs but it can be taken apart to make it easier. The head assembly of the hitch is held on with one large pin. The other option is a hitch mounted crane. The MaxxTow crane part # MT70238 could take it out as one assembly.

You'd also need the # DM6099 adapter for the Ram OEM 5th wheel towing prep package. The Hijacker automatically slides rearward during turns, and will return into place after you straighten out. The Hijacker Autoslide has an 18K capacity, so it sounds exactly like what you're looking for. A 21K version is also available as part # DM8550035.

The Reese adapter also only works with certain manual slider hitches so I have a different recommendation for you.

To install a slider hitch in your 2015 Ram 3500 short bed with the factory prep package you will need an adapter since none of the slider hitches are a direct fit in the Ram puck system. And for a hitch, I recommend going with a slider that has the most travel to help make tight turns. For an adapter you...

  • Demco Adapter for 2015 Ram 3500 with OEM Prep Package Will Not Lock Into Place

You may need to add or remove a shim from the locking sockets on the Demco adapter to get the right depth.

  • You are correct that 5th wheel towing with your 6-foot-bed Ram 2500 will require either a sliding 5th wheel hitch and standard pin box or a trailer that has a Revolution/Sidewinder pivoting pin box along with a fixed hitch. Either way you will gain the extra turning clearance you need for low-speed maneuvers. The auto-sliding 5th wheel hitch I suggest is the Demco Hijacker, which provides 14-inches of extra turning clearance along with its automated slider function. In your truck you...

  • Will Demco Hijacker AutoSlide Fifth Wheel Hitch Allow 2016 Ram 3500 to Make Tight Turns when Towing
  • The great thing about the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # DM8550037 is that it slides automatically back 14 inches as you make tight turns. Because of that it would allow your 2016 Ram to make tight turns without interference, BUT since you have the factory rail kit you would want the # DM8550035 instead with the adapter part # DM6099. Both of these combined is 391 lbs but it is designed to be taken apart in sections to allow for an easier removal.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2016 Ram 2500 Short Bed with Factory Puck System
  • One of the most quiet 5th wheel hitches on the market is the Reese Titan 5th Wheel Hitch. For your short bed truck, I recommend the Reese Titan 20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Round Tube Slider # RP30870. To fit this hitch to the puck system in your truck bed, you can use the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # RP30154. The Titan offers a smooth, quieter ride thanks to the cast pivot beam in the hitch, and heavy-duty dampeners minimize rattle and noise. This sliding hitch offers 11 inches...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch w/ Lowest Height Available for 2016 Ram 2500 Short Bed w/ Factory Tow/Prep Package
  • The sliding fifth wheel hitch with the lowest hitch height we offer would be the Demco Hijacker Autoslide, part # DM8550035. When used with the # DM6099 adapter, the minimum hitch height would be about 16-1/4 inches. Keep in mind, to be safe and prevent the underside of your fifth wheel's trailer loft from impacting the tops of your bed sides, you'll want at least 6 inches of clearance between the top of the bed sides and the underside of the trailer loft. You could knock off 1/2 an...

  • Adapter to Use a Husky/Valley 7054 Hitch in a 2015 Ram 3500 with Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • The Husky/Valley Powerpull 5th wheel hitches fit in industry standard above the bed rails. If your new 2015 Ram 3500 has the factory 5th wheel prep package then to use the hitch you will need adapter # RP30154 or adapter # DM6099 (the rounded rail design of # DM6099 would be better for slider hitches). Both of these adapters accept hitches that fit in industry standard above the bed rails.
