Video Transcript for Demco Fifth Wheel Installation Kit DM6099 Review

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

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

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

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

Sturdy adaptor plate but sloppy quality control. Had to grind the front puck mount holes. Excess welds in the holes not allowing both puck mounts to lock down. Rear puck lock had a spot weld in the bolt hole causing one of the mounting bolts to get marred up. Had to retap the hole and get a new bolt. 641561

The customer service was outstanding getting exactly what I needed. The product is very good, but the instructions were limited.

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

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.

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...

The trick is that you also want your trailer to tow level. To find out what height your 5th wheel hitch needs to be you first of all need to measure from the ground to the king pin on your pin box.

The Companion drops right into your pucks - no adapters required - and it offers 12-inches of slider travel, a double-pivoting head for easier hitching and a double jaw system...

  • What Is Angle To Hook Up Trailer With The Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • I reviewed the instructions for the Demco Auto-Slide 5th Wheel Hitch, Item # DM8550035, and the coupling and uncoupling needs to be straight or slightly angled with alignment. It works pretty easily with 10-15 degree angle but anything larger will not allow proper coupling. If you have a factory rail kit, you will need installation rails Item # DM6099. If you do not have the factory rail kit, you will need Item # DM8552026-71. I have attached the installation instructions, an...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch For 2017 Ram 3500 With Short Bed And Facftory Tow Package
  • If you are buying a Ram 3500 with the factory tow package we have a couple of fifth wheel options that will work great for you The fifth wheel I recommend for your truck is the Demco Hijacker Autosklide # DM8550035. The head for this slider automatically slides toward the tailgate when you are making turns and returns when you straighten out. The front to rear travel for this hitch is 14 inches. This is a lot easier than exiting the truck to manually pull a lever to release the slider...

  • 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...

  • Demco Hijacker or PullRite SuperGlide for Short Bed on a 2016 Ram 2500
  • The Demco Hijacker Autoslide # DM8550034 is definitely the better option over the PullRite SuperGlide 4400. Although they do share some similarities (like the autosliding function, single-jaw to secure the king pin, and cushioned heads) the Demco stands out because it has 3 different height settings, 15-1/4", 16-1/2", and 18", features a 3/4" steel locking bar to reinforce the king pin connection, and doesn't require a locking plate unless you are using a special pin box. The PullRite...

  • Recommended B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch Base or Adapter Rail Kit for Ram Factory Rail Puck System
  • For your 2018 Ram 2500 with 6-1/2 foot bed and factory pucks, I recommend the Replacement Slider Base for B&W OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Ram Towing Prep Package - 20K # BWRVB3670. This will give you a slider base to use with your factory system and current hitch head. If you want to leave your hitch as is, you can use the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ram OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package - 25,000 lbs # DM6099 to adapt the factory pucks to industry standard rails. You may...

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2015 Ram 2500 with 6-1/2 Foot Bed
  • Yes, the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider part # DM8550035 is the best 5th wheel hitch we have for your 2015 Ram 2500 as long as you do not have the RamBox. The hitch as the title states has an auto-sliding feature that will allow for turns up to 90 degrees with your trailer and not have to exit the truck. It is capable of a gross towing weight up to 21,000 lbs and comes with a 5-year warranty. In order to install this hitch on your Ram you would also need...

  • Is Locking Plate Required for Rota-Flex Pin Box Used with Demco 18K Autoslider 5th Wheel Hitch
  • Demco's automatic 18K Hijacker sliding hitch # DM8550034 and matching installation kit for your Ram2500 with factory prep, part # DM6099, are an excellent choice for your Grand Design 5th wheel with Rota-Flex pin box. This slider provides 14-inches of additional turning clearance, more than most, and it is USA-made. The outrigger bar does not require drilling into the truck bed; it rests on top of the bed. Locking plates are required for use with certain cushioned pin boxes such as the...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ram 2500 Short Bed with Factory Rail Kit
  • For your 2018 Ram 2500 short bed with the factory fifth wheel rail kit the best hitch solution we have would be the Demco Hijacker AutoSlide part # DM8550035 which automatically slides as you make tight turns to give you better turning clearance. Since you have a short bed truck you'll need the slider clearance to allow you to make tight turns without having the nose of your trailer hit the cab of the truck. To fit this to the rail kit of your truck you'll need the rail kit adapter...

  • Automatic Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ram 2500 with Hitch Prep Package
  • We have just what you are looking for. We have the Demco Hijacker Autoslide fifth wheel hitches that automatically slide back as you make tight turns which saves you the hassle of having to get out and operate a slider mechanism all the time. For that we have the 18k version part # DM8550034 and the 21k version part # DM8550035. To attach either hitch to the factory rail kit of your 2018 Ram would require only the rail kit adapter part # DM6099.

  • Is Demco Recon Compatible With Reese Sidewinder?
  • Yes, the Demco Recon # DM8550043 is compatible with a Reese Sidewinder such as # RP61450 as long as you use custom wedge # SWW-05. To mount it in the factory puck system of your 2015 Ram 3500, you would want the Reese Fifth Wheel Rail Adapter # RP30154. I've added a link to a video review of the Recon for you, as well as a link to our page with each of our available Sidewinders.

  • 5th Wheel and Conventional Towing Weight Capacities for 2018 Ram 3500
  • The 2018 Ram 3500 with Cummins Diesel is dependent on the axle ratio, the cab, and the box length. I've attached the chart to assist with each of these. The number in the parenthesis for each of them is the 5th wheel towing capacity and the other number is for the trailer hitch receiver below the bumper. If you are looking for a trailer hitch receiver, I have linked the page to your options to assist. Assuming you are looking for 5th wheel components, if you have the factory tow...

  • Should Lube Plate Be Used with Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch
  • You can certainly use a lube plate with the Demco Hijacker Autoslide # DM8550034 but it isn't quite as necessary as it is with many other hitches because the hitch head actually rotates with the pin box. Demco also doesn't outright recommend one with this particular hitch. If you do decide to add one to further prevent wear I recommend the Reese 12" Lube Plate # RP83004 because of its larger diameter that covers more space on the hitch and the 1/8 inch thickness (a bit thinner than...

  • Comparing Demco Hijacker and PullRite SuperGlide Auto Sliding 5th Wheel Hitches for a 2018 Ram 2500
  • Even though the PullRite SuperGlide is a great product, the Demco Hijacker actually has more to offer at a lower price-point which makes it the better choice. The Hijacker utilizes a single-jaw and 3/4" steel locking bar for the most secure connection and can be adjusted between 15-1/4", 16-1/2", and 18" while the SuperGlide only uses the single-jaw and has one height setting of 18-1/2". Since each towing setup is different the Hijacker gives you more options to tow level without having...
