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

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 needed a mounting kit for a fifth wheel. No one but these guys had it in stock. They shipped it fast and very reasonably priced. The customer got the truck for the weekend and can go camping now. 398016

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.

Excellent company--a portion of the order was missing, & problem was resolved with one phone call. Packaging was stellar and was shipped in a timely manner. They have the best tracking system I've ever come across. Would definitely use this company again. 490201

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


My 5th Wheel Rails came with Universal "L" brackets but these brackets seem much stronger and also look good on the truck. The main reason I purchased these was because it uses existing holes in the truck frame to mount. I didn't want to make holes that may not line up. These worked perfect for my 2006 Ford F-150. One advice I can give, buy some "ratcheting" open end wrenches and attaching the rails to these brackets becomes much better since there isn't enough room for a socket between the frame. 9315

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

I am glad I bought this kit for my 2011 ford f250. It fit really well and went together much easier than the universal kit would have. In my opinion this is a must have when installing a fifth wheel rail kit. Definitely worth the money. 284900

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


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

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


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

  • Truck Bed 5th Wheel Mounting Brackets for 2014 Ram 2500
    The Reese # RP56009 is a frame bracket kit, which contains the frame brackets and the hardware to mount them to the frame. Since these brackets connect to the bed rails on the OUTBOARD side of the frame and not above it, standard length bed rails like those included with the # RP30035 universal install kit. You'll need longer rails, part # RP30153 which include hardware for attaching to the frame brackets. If you click the provided link, you can see a product description video for the...

  • Base Rail Brackets Needed for Installing Outboard Base Rails on a 2008 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500
    I do have custom outboard brackets for your 2008 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500, but the brackets kit # RP56009 that you referenced is not the correct kit. Instead you will want the kit part # RP56011 to use with your Universal Outboard Base Rails # RP30153. The brackets come with hardware, but if you don't have new hardware for your base rails (as hardware is only supposed to be torqued down once) you will need the Replacement Hardware Kit # RP58504 as well.

  • Reese Fifth Wheel Rail and Bracket Kit Recommendation for 2016 Ram 2500 Short Bed
    For your 2016 Ram 2500 short bed the Reese bracket kit part # RP56009 is the correct fit. But since it sounds like you don't have a matching set of Reese rails to go along with this you'd need the kit that includes them as well with part # RP50069-53. As long as your PullRite hitch is the style that fits the industry standard rails (ISR) then it will work with this kit. I attached an install video for this kit for you to check out as well.

  • Installing 5th Wheel Hitch Base Rails in 2015 Ram 2500 With and Without Factory Prep Package
    If your 2015 Ram 2500 with 6-foot bed has the factory 5th wheel prep package you can install any industry-standard 5th wheel hitch by using the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # RP30154. This adapter drops into the factory pucks in the bed and provides the equivalent of standard 5th wheel base rails that will accept most industry-standard sliders like Curt # C16560. If the truck does not have the factory puck system and you want to re-use your existing 5th wheel base rails you can use Reese...

  • Reese Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit Recommendation for 2017 Ram 2500 without Factory Rail Kit
    For your 2017 Ram 2500 without the factory rail kit the Reese fifth wheel bracket kit part # RP50054 that you referenced will fit your Reese rails. These are part of the inboard rail kit part # RP50054-58. You'd need new hardware for the rails to attach to the bracket kit as these bolts are one time use. For that you'd need part # RP58430. If instead you have the longer outboard rails you'd need the part # RP56009 which is a part of the # RP56009-53.

  • Hardware for 2015 Ram 2500 5th Wheel Rails
    The parts you referenced for your 2015 Ram 2500, # RP50054 Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit and # RP58430 Replacement Hardware Kit, are both a fit for the 43 inch Reese rails # RP58058. I contacted the manufacturer and the cylindrical spacers you are referring to are included in the # RP50054 kit. I'd recommend you double-check the base rails and frame brackets to make sure they are the same manufacturer. It is not recommended to mix brands between the base rails and frame brackets.

  • Replacement Brackets and Hardware for Reese Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch
    If your rails are Reese rails then the install bracket kit you need is # RP50054 for inboard brackets and kit # RP56009 if you have outboard brackets. The easiest way to tell which kit you need is to meaure your base rails. Inboard brackets will fit 43 inch rails and outboard brackets fit 48 inch rails. If your base rails are not Reese rails, let me know which brand they are and I'll find the correct hardware kit for you.

  • Outboard Or Inboard 5th Wheel Installation Kit 2014 Ram 2500
    An outboard 5th wheel installation kit will be much easier to install compared to an inboard 5th wheel installation kit. In most cases, the frame brackets used on an outboard kit will have mounting bolts that attach outside the frame rail. On inboard installation kits, the frame brackets have mounting bolts that will be on the inside of the frame rail. The longer base rails for the outboard kit are required because the mounting holes are outside the frame rail and not inside the frame rail...

  • Reese Outboard Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit Recommendation for 2018 Ram 2500
    The Reese fifth wheel rail kit part # RP56001-53 that you had installed on your 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD would not fit a 2018 Ram 2500 as they are totally different trucks. You'd be able to reuse the rails though if you went with the bracket kit # RP56009. This bracket kit with your outboard Reese rails would be all you'd need to install rails in your new 2018 Ram.

  • Will Custom Fit Under Bed Brackets Fit Pro Series Universal 5th Wheel Rails in a 2015 Ram 2500
    The rails that are included with universal install kit # RP30035 for Reese 5th wheel hitch # RP30035 are the shorter rails. The brackets, # RP56009, are designed for the new, longer rails # RP30153, so they would not work together but there is something that will work. You could use brackets # RP50054 for a 2015 Ram 2500 and the rails that come with the universal kit or just get the whole custom kit with the brackets and rails # RP50054-58.
