Video Transcript for Fifth Wheel Hitch Installation - 2002 Ford F-250

Today on this 2002 Ford F-250 we are going to install part number RP30035 from Reese. For the first part of the install we need to locate the rear base rail for the fifth wheel hitch. Our measurement is going to start at the very end of the bed itself, not the tailgate, the end and we are going to measure up as described in the instructions. And then we will go ahead and make our mark. We will do that on both sides so we can make our rails even. :25

We are going to place our rail into place. We are going to put our marks we made in the bed with this edge right here pointing out to the back of the truck. Once you have the right distance from the back then you want to get it measured out from left to right, make sure it is nice and even. This groove in the bed here is a good place to measure off of. Now we are going to lay out our second rail, just put it in its general spot. We will use the fifth wheel itself to help position the second rail. We have the fifth wheel on the rails, lets go ahead and put in some pins to hold it in place. :58

We will line up the hitch again with the lines that we made on our front rail, because you know moving it around is going to mess it up. We have our first rail put back in position to match up to the marks in the bed. Now we will go to the second rail and check for SS and make sure its even with the front rail. There is a couple ways to do it. First off, we will do a quick measurement this way, and then left and right also just like we did the first rail. Then we will go diagonally for check for SS. The instructions say we are going to use the holes on the outside here for the Ford Pick up. What we are going to do next is find center. You want to drill it out and make a small pilot hole first, probably a 1/8 of an inch and then compare to see where we can put our brackets on the frame. Since we are using a universal kit, you only get two brackets, a short one and a long one. Usually you are going to go on one side of the hat channel or center sill. Also, you need to take account for pieces that are in the way of the frame, such as this linkage or parking brake cable hanger. We can use the short or long interchangeably. Typically the long goes in front if you can, if not, we can reverse them, it is no big deal. Now we have our hole right here that we drilled out. Lets go ahead and do some comparison here. We will do our short bracket in front and then we will line up to whichever one of these holes looks best. It looks like on this one I am going to be using this hole right here. We will be drilling two holes in the frame, here and here. We have located our front rail bracket, now we will go to the back rail and locate that. Again, the frame has some stuff in the way, we have the rivets, and plus it has this dent into it, like a compression, so we can not use that. On this side there is a nice flat section right here. It looks like we will be using this hole right here to line up our bolt. Then we will be drilling here and here on our frame, it is nice and flat, so it will be a good place to locate our bracket. Now we will repeat the same process back over on the passenger side. 2:59

Now we will slide our hitch out of the way and drill out our pilot holes that we made to the larger side for the bolts. We are going to do a 3/8 inch drill bit first and then up to a 9/16th inch. Alright I have our holes drilled, lets go ahead and slide everything back into place. Lets our hardware in now. We will take the carriage bolts, and just them into place. One thing to note, we will have to put a spacer block underneath, we will show that later. We have sight of the ten holes drilled. The last two holes that we need to drill out go into the center of the rail itself. That can go inside or outside, it does not matter as long as you have plenty of clearance to get to it. We will set our bed rail in place and torque it all down and we will set that for last. We will start with our front bracket. Remember that we talked about the spacer block in between. We will take down this bracket for now, and show you how to install the block. We will slide this into the bed rail, we will take up the corrugation so it will not crush the bed as much. However, since this truck is used and has seen some miles, the bed has been crushed into the support already. So we are actually going to make some room. We will use a simple pry bar to give us some room. We have that cut out wrapped around the bolt, and then our bracket will set up against here ans sandwich part of the hat channel, nice and secure. We will attach our hardware to hold everything in place. Into our bracket we are going to install a flat washer, lock washer, and nut. We will go ahead and install our blocks again, inside they may spread out a little bit. Then we will install a conical tooth washer, this also will get a lock washer, and a nut. Once we have all the hardware done on the driver side here we will go ahead and go to the passenger side and repeat the same process again. Now I have all the hardware installed with the brackets. We will snug down our bolts to our cross rails to our frame brackets. To help keep them straight while we tighten them down we are going to clamp these brackets to the frame. Get the rear one done, now go to the front bracket. We got our driver side done, lets go ahead and repeat the same process back over on the passenger side. 5:26

The next thing we will do is get back in the bed of the truck. We will test fit our fifth wheel hitch itself to make sure it can remove easily. Lets continue on torquing the frame brackets to the bed rails. We have our driver side torqued down, lets go to the passenger side and do that again. After that, check one more time that you can take the hitch in and out of the rails. Now we have the frame brackets in place, lets drill out the holes for them. Take a look behind the frame and make sure there is nothing you want to drill into like the gas tank, brake lines, or wiring. In this case here, going towards the front on the driver side we put a block right here because our bolt will be pretty close to this brake line right here. So we will hit the block first before anything else. Everything else around the frame looks pretty clear. We will go ahead and drill out our holes now. What we are going to do is use our 17/32 inch bit and mark the center of our hole. We will drill a pilot hole first, and then go back with our bit. Now we will install the bolts that go into the frame and out the frame bracket. We will use this bolt right here that looks like a wheel stud, it has splines right here, this will grip the steel in the frame and come out this way. Then we will install our lock washer and nut. Then we will tighten those up until the bolts get seeded into the frame, and then we will torque them down as specified. These two bolts here are partially blocked by the gas tank, so we are going to fish wire those in. This is the fish wire tool that comes with the kit. We are going to push it through the hole we are going to use, push it out the back of the frame and thread our bolt into it and pull it back through. We will remove it and add our lock washer and nut. Lets go ahead and drill the last two holes in the bed of the truck. There are obstructions underneath there like a heat shield, so we are going to do the outside hole here and the outside on the other rail. Since our bed has been smashed right here, we can use it to our advantage and put a spacer underneath there like that. The one going up front is okay. Lets sneak in our spacer, that will be just fine. We will our bolt back through, and tighten it down. That finishes our install of part number RP30035 from Reese.

I traded in a 2011 dodge ram 2500 6.4 box for a 2014 dodge ram 2500 6.4 box and I have a reese proline 15k hitch. is there any universal brackets to connect my old rails to my new truck? thank you very much

Reese does not currently have any frame bracket and rail kits available for the 2014 Ram, probably due to the new OEM fifth wheel system. Curt does offer such a kit, part C16427-104, and your Reese hitch will attach just fine. It is best to keep frame brackets and rails of the same manufacturer, but the hitch mounting points where they pin into the rails are standardized. If you have the OEM fifth wheel system, let me know and I can check on the availability of an adpater system.

I was moving my 5th wheel hitch from a 2005 Dodge to 2015 Ford. The rail mounting kit for the Ford was complete and installation went smoothly. The kit could use a couple more spacers but it was not a problem as I reused spacers from the Dodge. 242067

Very easy install. I had zero experience with this type of install, or fifth wheels in general. I was able to mount my used fifth wheel using this mounting kit on my 97 f250 ccsb, alone in about three hours, without any help or problems. 110417

I purchased the Reese Universal Installation kit for installing a pickup bed hitch for a 5th wheel camper. The installation went well and I found that I was thankful for the various extra pieces that were provided to allow options for different ways to do the installation. The quality and strength were very good. I'm happy to have purchased this kit. 326030

E-trailer deserves 5 Stars for service, follow up and delivery. Thanks for the great service. As for the installation kit.. Bolts and nuts, fine, but the layout and brackets did not work with my vehicle, a 91 Chevy long-bed Silverado. I follow the instructions for locating the back rail, 30 & 15/16" per instructions. Located the brackets over the sloted 5/8" holes provided in the frame but had to turn the inward to match second holes in rails, could not make them work otherwise. Drilled the pilot holes for front thru front rail with hitch in place, missed front provided slots in frame with bracket by 2". No way in or out, forward or backward to make it work. Planning to have all brackets welded as drilling will not work due to lines ect. Basically the brackets don't work without welding. 283267

Purchased the kit for install on my 1986 Ford F-250. Installer tells me that all included items (hardware, instructions) were as they should be. Only hiccup was that the FORWARD brackets had to be welded vice bolted, due to the location of the rear uppoer shock tower on the truck. Took him some time, but job looks good, and we'll be testing it today on an hour-long drive to our new spot for the next several months. After that, who knows where life might take us!! Looking forward to seeing some of the Southeast, minimum, taking home right along with us. The folks at eTrailers.com were great, helping me with questions, as we're new to pulling the rv, even after living in it since early '16. 415181

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rail Brackets for 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The 5th wheel brackets I recommend for your 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty are the Reese Quick-Install Custom Brackets # RP50074 that also are available in the full kit # RP50074-58. These will not require extra drilling into your frame for installation. If you want the universal fit brackets you can use the Universal kit # RP30035 or just brackets # RP30439. If you use the brackets only with either kit, you will still want to use new hardware for the rails # RP58430.

  • Bracket Kit Needed to Mount Reese Base Rails on 2008 Chevy Silverado 2500 Duramax
  • If you already have the standard 43" long Reese Base Rails, part # RP58058, then I recommend going with the Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit # RP50064 which does not require drilling since it matches right up to existing mounting holes in the frame of your 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500. A more economic option would be the Reese Universal Installation Kit # RP30439 but it does require drilling and is a little more tricky to install. If you happen to have the Outboard 48" long Base Rails...

  • Replacement Installation Hardware for Reese 5th Wheel Hitch # RP30051
  • We offer a universal-fit install kit for Reese 5th wheel hitches, part # RP30439, which is intended for use with 10-bolt base rails. There are several types of 5th wheel brackets offered, custom and semi-custom, and without knowing which exact kit you have, or the model year and version of your Sierra, this universal kit is the best option I can suggest. If you wish to advise the part number of your install kit and the specifics for your truck I may be able to offer alternatives.

  • Above vs Below-Bed Hitches and Recommended Hitch for 2018 Ford F-350 with 6.75-Foot Bed
  • Above-bed hitches are installed on rails that remain in the bed of your truck even when the hitch is not in use. With below-bed hitches, the installation equipment is installed beneath the truck bed, so the fifth wheel hitch simply drops into the pucks and locks in. Below-bed systems provide complete access to your truck bed when the hitch is removed—there are no rails that remain inside like there are for the above-bed systems. I've included a photo of each for you to check out. Because...

  • Mounting Brackets Needed for Installing 5th Wheel Base Rails on a 2003 Ford F-250
  • We do have brackets for mounting base rails to your 2003 Ford F-250 with a 6-1/2' bed but I would first need to know what brand base rails you already have. It is always best to use the same brand brackets as base rails to make sure everything fits properly. For example, the base rails # RP58058 can be paired with the universal brackets # RP30439 or the custom brackets # RP50082 on your F-250. If you don't have the hardware for your base rails then you would need part # RP58430 as well. If...

We do not have the installation instructions for only the hardware kit # RP30439, but I have linked the # RP30035 installation instructions to this reply for your reference.

  • Universal Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit Recommendation for a 2002 Dodge Ram 2500
  • Normally we don't recommend mixing fifth wheel bracket and rail manufacturers. If you have a Reese set of rails you would want the part number # RP30439. This kit is designed to fit 10 bolt Reese rails like what you may have since Reese is a very popular brand. Although this kit would most likely work with other brand rails I can't recommend this kit for you unless you know it is a Reese set of rails. For the hardware to secure the rails to this bracket kit you would want part # RP58430.

  • Where Do 5th Wheel Rails Install in the Bed of a 2003 Ford F-250 Long Bed
  • On your 2003 Ford F-250, if it has a gross vehicle weight of 8,500 pounds or less then from the rear edge of the bed to the back of rear most rail it is 29-1/4 inches. Over 8,500 pound GVW and it is 33-1/2 inches to the back of the rear rail. Once you have the rear rail in place use the hitch to place the front rail.

These springs mount to the bottoms of the truck frame rails. This is important because this type of design means that it will not interfere with a 5th wheel installation kit. I do not know what brand or style of rails that you already have but they may not be compatible with the universal installation brackets, # RP30439. These brackets are designed...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Install Kit for a 2004 Dodge Ram 3500 Dually
  • There have been 5th wheel installation kits that at least in part bolted directly to the frame. But I strongly advise going with a new install kit with brackets so the force applied to the installation kit components is spread out over a larger area compared to just a bolt. For a custom kit I recommend # C16420-204. You will not have to drill into the truck frame to install the brackets. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you.

The universal install kit takes about 6 hours to install, and would require drilling into the truck frame. Since you already have the bed rails, you'd need the frame brackets less the bed rails, part # RP30439.
