All was good, but there were no nuts for the bolts. For as much as this cost it looks like I could get the nuts for the bolts to. 598497


Comments

Your Ram truck actually has factory installed mounting points in the truck frame for the bolts included in the bracket kit to attach. No nuts were included because they are not needed.

The hitch install kit is a good product. It took about six hours to install because my installer had never put this kit on the new Ford with the aluminum box before and he wanted it to be right. There was some issues with the fit on the frame. Little things like welds not ground down and getting it to fit tight to the frame of the truck. He was able to fix all of the issues with out any problems. Just a little longer installation time is needed to insure a proper fit than we expected. Overall, a good product. I would buy this hitch installation kit again, and I do recommend it. 480261

I agree with the other reviews, allow yourself extra time and patience when installing this kit. It fit perfectly without drilling any holes in my new truck frame. Some of the bolts are near impossible to catch. It took me about 3-4 hours to install. Find someone to help who has skinny arms and long fingers....anyone who has installed this will agree. I am glad I used this instead of the universal "L" brackets, it was well worth the effort. 17953

I have purchased products from etrailer a few different times. I am always impressed how quickly it comes to my home. The product fit and worked great with detailed instructions and helpful video. I think where etrailer sets themselves apart from other online vendors is the customer service. I had some questions and I spoke with Bill on a couple of different occasions and he made me feel as if I was at my hometown hardware store. Thanks much, I have nothing but good to say about etrailer, their products and their people. 365776

Very easy to install. Measure twice, drill once. I used every piece of galvanic corrosion tape to protect the aluminum bed in the kit, probably could have used a little more. Even though I painted the edge of the holes after drilling, maybe some sort of insulator could be used there also. 543657

Review from a similar Reese Quick-Install in Accessories and Parts


The kit arrived within a few days-very happy about that. very easy to install. the directions were clear and pictures good. I went to the trouble of using a sharpie to mark the part numbers on everything before I started just to keep to all straight. I would note that on the 2017 F350 diesel the only problem bolt was on the driver side inline with the DEF tank. long skinny arms with flexible wrist is ideal (not what I have). I would also suggest taping the shims onto the outboard frame brackets to save yourself some frustrations. otherwise they are difficult to get and keep in place, especially on the driver side. the two nuts that go inside the frame tube come on/with a nice handle although a bit light on the wield. here again save yourself and tape the shims on before you try to insert two things into that hole, align and fasten the bolt-by yourself. I used an extension with wobble head and socket to turn the bolt while holding the nut "assembly" in place. I did remove the rear wheels and fender well liner-a must. Lastly, great customer service on the phone. Pleasant and patient answering questions. Wayde C - Montana 356688

Very happy how soon the product I ordered was at my door step. 3 days after I ordered it. Put the base to my 5th wheel on my 2017 250 diesel sd took me around 5 hrs, would have been faster with 2 people. The base fit my husky 16k prefect when I done torquing all the bolts. Going to use this hitch to pull my 29.5 Durango EZ 1500. 550285

The hitch and mounting kit work fine for hauling my fifth wheel. The drilless mounting kit did not look like it fit correctly, the numbers and product were correct for my truck, I decided to install several bolts making it a bolt on kit. The overall assembly ans installation was a bit time consuming and needed two people to help move the parts and keep it true, but a year later and it still slips in and out without any issues. The mechanics of the hitch are still funtional and there is little to no play with in the hitch after thousands of miles used. Overall it is a hitch and preforms great. Downside is the weight of the unit making it impossible to SAFELY move with one person. 268564

Great rail kit. Fairly simple install. The instructions are easy to follow. I did not have to remove spare or rear wheels to install. Only had to have helper for the two bolts in the third row. Hint, tape the u spacers to the long handle nut that goes inside the bed cross member. I did install rails in my previous truck (seventeen years ago) so I kind of knew what to expect. Frame brackets are a lot better now. 380705

Five hours to install; which included a half hour searching for the key to the padlock on my spare. E-Trailer linked me to an installation video which really helped. I took my time and measured three times before I drilled the bed. Installation is a lot easier with someone to hold the bolts from the top. I fabricated mounting brackets on my last truck, but these were worth the money and I didn't have to drill the frame! Good design and straight-forward installation. My only issue was the video didn't show one bolt install that secured the driver's side rear bracket to the bottom of the frame. I was going off the video only and wasn't using the written instructions. Make sure you go step by step using both. Also, some parts are clearly for a different application so there will be a few parts left over. My experience with e-trailer was awesome. 154484

Well priced. Shipped quickly. Printed instructions, coupled with website video installations, made DIY very easy. Very simple setup, but a couple bolt areas were difficult to reach, and in my case, my wife was able to assist me to reach these areas. Total install took a few hours with minimal tools. Asked one question by e-mail and was answered next day prior to purchase. 78932


Comments

Easy to follow instructions, install involved removing a factory heat shield, which wasnt easy, but was completed. Small hands made a hard to reach area easier to thread a nut onto a bolt, all other locations were easy to complete. No problems a year after install. Etrailer had been prompt, easy to contact by email prior to purchase, to verify product, and prompt shipping. Followed recommendation to additionally purchase all new bolt kit with these brackets.

These are great brackets, well made, and will fit rails with 10 bolt or 4 bolt installations. I installed Curt rails(exact as Reese) and everything bolted up just as the instructions said. The reason I did not give them an excellent rating is because of the difficulty in the under bed installation. Somewhere I read that it was a 40 minute job for a pro and 80 for a DIY, but 5 hours later, I was done. Again, it is an issue with the new 2011 HD frame, but you must remove your spare so you have room to work, but the biggest pain was the heat deflector shields that GM has put above the exhaust system, right under the bed. There is no room to work, and taking the heat shields out looked to be very time consuming. I finally bent the shield enough to get the washers, locks and nuts on. Also, there is only about 2 inches to work between the top of the frame rail and bottom of the bed. You will need another person and a long screwdriver to be your other hand. The instructions say to torque all 1/2" bolts to 75 psi, but there is no way to get a socket, let alone a torque wrench in there. Still a great product, just plan for an all day event. 7969

RP56002-53 Frame brackets did not properly match 2013 F-350 frame. Bracket holes had to be elongated (received approval from Reese Tech Service for this) because there was no way they would bolt to frame without modification. Brackets also had interference with frame rivets and bracket holes for rivets also needed to be elongated. Fortunately neighbor had a milling machine which was used to modify brackets. RP30869 Reese Titan 16K hitch with round tube slider was manufactured in China. Serious quality issues required first hitch be returned to Reese because it was not functional. Hitch could not freely rock fore-aft because of improper casting and machining. Mechanic assembling hitch to its saddle had to use hammer to assemble. Replacement hitch received from Reese with a missing grease fitting but no similar interferences limiting hitch movement. The hitch saddle rests on 1" diameter pins oriented fore-aft through the slider cross piece that allows hitch to rock left-right. As manufactured hitch can move vertically about 1/16" on 1" diameter pins and fore-aft 3/16". So when driving over a hard bump hitch slams up and down on the 1" pin clearance. When braking hitch moves forward until hitch saddle contacts cross bar on slider. Contact is on as-cast, not machined surface. Contact is only on left side. When accelerating hitch moves back until hitch saddle contacts forward side of cross bar on slider. Same issue with contact but now on right side indicating improper set-up for machining of saddle casting. Design concept is good but design execution and manufacturing are very poorly executed. I am considering modifying hitch and slider cross bar to eliminate excessive fore-aft slop (clearance). I have not come up with a solution to reduce the vertical movement. Serrated jaw hitching mechanism is nice but also poorly manufactured. When backing into hitch at any speed (hard/fast or slow) jaws close but locking handle cannot be locked. Vehicle must be pulled forward very slowly / delicately with pressure applied to locking handle to get it into fully locked position. Because of apparent quality and perhaps design issues I cannot recommend these Reese products. I purchased Reese products based on past experience with other Reese products. Never again. 254646

I installed these custom brackets in my truck today using the hardware included and also the replacement hardware kit I ordered for attaching my fifth wheel rails to the brackets. They fit perfectly in my 2016 Ford F350 King Ranch dually with the 8 foot box. I am once again pleased with etrailer.com for their customer service and fast shipping!

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Install Kit for a Fifth Gen 2019 Ram 1500
  • I do have a custom 5th wheel install kit available for your fifth generation 2019 Ram 1500 but the Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # RP50142 is not a confirmed fit. Instead, you will need to use the Demco Above-Bed Base Rails and Custom Installation Kit part # DM8552032-71 which is currently one of the only available options for you so long as you don't have the factory airbags.

The # RP50142 bracket kit that you referenced is only a fit on the Ram up through the 2018 model year so they won't work on your 2019 model.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2014 Dodge Ram 1500
  • A rail kit from a 2500 series Ram truck will not fit a 1500 regardless of the year so you'll need an all new kit for your 2014 Ram 1500. For that you'd want a custom install kit as they install much quicker and easier than universal style kits. For that the Reese rail kit part # RP50142-58 would be a great option.

  • Base Rails And Brackets For A 2016 Dodge Ram 1500 With Reese 5th Wheel Hitch
  • The installation brackets you will want to install a 5th wheel hitch on your 2016 Dodge Ram 1500 is our Reese Quick-Install Custom Brackets part # RP50142. The brackets will only fit the Reese brand 10 bolt base rails part # RP58058. I do not recommend mixing brackets and base rails between different manufacturers, so you will want to make sure you have Reese base rails.

  • How to Tow Fifth Wheel Trailer with 2019 Ram 1500 with Air Suspension and Ram Boxes
  • Fifth wheel towing is possible with a truck like your 2019 Ram 1500 that has a Ram Box but it is a bit more challenging due to the Ram Box. Reason being the boxes are very wide and take up valuable space a pin box would need to pivot. So the solution is a Sidewinder pin box installed on the trailer as this moves the pivot point up higher above the bed rails. You will need to remove the pin box of the trailer and replace it with a Sidewinder pin box. Sidewinders are pin box specific...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rail Brackets & Hardware Compatible With Air Suspension on 2015 Ram 1500 5.5FT
  • Since you already have the rails, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50142. Then I recommend the Replacement Hardware Kit for Fifth Wheel Base Rails - 10 Bolt # RP58430 as the hardware for your rails. This will give you the base rail system for your 2015 Ram 1500. Because you have the 5.5 foot box, a sliding hitch will not work so you will need a Revolution pin box on your trailer or the aftermarket version the Reese Sidewinder....

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2008 Dodge Ram 1500
  • I have a solution for you, but the fifth wheel rails/brackets you had installed on your 2008 Dodge Ram are not a fit for your new 2014 model. You would need to upgrade your kit to the part # RP50142-58 as it is a custom fit kit that will minimize drilling and install time when compared to a universal kit. If you happen to have Reese rails already all you would need is the part # RP50142 and the hardware kit part # RP58430.
