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

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


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

Brackets worked great!! Installation was much easier!! Didn't have to drill holes through the frame, just through the bed. Informational videos were superb and customer service was top notch!! I am very happy with my purchase. 559579

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.

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

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2014 Ram 2500
    Yes, we have a set of Reese custom fit fifth wheel rails for your 2014 Ram 2500. For that you'd want the part # RP50054-58 which is a confirmed fit and will work well. It's a custom fit so it won't require any frame drilling and will install in about half the time as a universal kit. For just the brackets you'd want # RP50054.

  • Brackets and Hardware Only to Mount Reese 5th Wheel Rails in a 2015 Ford F-250 Short Bed
    Fifth wheel brackets # RP56016 are specifically for the longer Reese rails, # RP30153, which are 48 inches long. If your rails are Reese and 48 inches long by 7-1/2 inches wide by 1-7/8 inches tall then # RP56016 is the correct bracket kit. If your rails are shorter than 48 inches then you will need bracket kit # RP50026 instead. Bracket kit # RP56016 comes with hardware to mount to the truck frame but not the hardware to attach the rails to the brackets. For that hardware you will need...

  • Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit Recommendation for Rail Kit for 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500
    You have to match the brand of rails to the brand of bracket kit, but if you have Reese rails the best bracket kit we have is the # RP50066 which is a custom fit kit for your truck. You'll need the hardware kit that attaches the rails to these brackets though as that hardware is considered one time use. So for that you'd want the part # 58164. If the rails you have are a different brand let me know and I'll see if we carry the matching bracket kit.

    Yes, we do have just the brackets available for your 2015 Ford F-350 that you can use with the Reese base rails, although the correct brackets are going to depend on which base rails you have because rails can be different lengths and will fit the brackets differently. If you aren't sure what you have, you can take a measurement, and I'll list the dimensions of the rails for you. - Reese Universal Outboard Base Rails # RP30153 measure 48" long x 7-1/2" wide x 1-7/8" tall and require...
