it comes with two rails . this is what one of the rails would be like. And the base rails are what will sit in your truck bed and provide the necessary attachment points for the fifth-wheel trailer hitch.Now this part number here, these are the semi-custom mounting brackets, which are specifically designed to fit your vehicle. They're designed for the Dodge Ram with the overload springs. The brackets, basically, will replace the traditional L-bend brackets in the rear, to fit your trucks with overload springs.

And the bolts will install in the center of the rails for extra support.You notice these parts are a sturdy steel construction. They have a nice black powder coat finish on them to resist corrosion.

  • Can Industry Standard Fifth Wheel Rail Install in Bed of Truck with Turnoverball Hitch
    Fifth wheel brackets like the part # RP58186 that you referenced cannot fit with a B and W Turnoverball gooseneck hitch installed but I do have a solution if you are wanting to install a standard style fifth wheel hitch in the bed of a truck with a Turnoverball installed. What you'd want is the Curt X5 adapter part # 16310. This is designed to fit the gooseneck ball hole of a Turnoverball hitch and provide you with a set of industry standard rails. See attached pic and review video.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Install Kit for a 2014 Ram 3500
    The 5th wheel installation kits for the 2012 Ram 2500 will not fit the 2014 Ram 3500. But we do have some kits that you can use on your 2014. I recommend Curt custom installation kit # C16430-204. This kit will fit your truck and will accept hitches that fit in industry standard above the bed rails. I have linked a video showing installation of this kit for you.

  • Compatibility of Reese Mounting Brackets # RP58186 on 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 Short-Bed Truck
    The Reese Mounting Bracket Kit # RP58186 will work for your vehicle as long as your truck is equipped with overload springs. On the 2500 series Dodge Ram, there will be two extra rubber jounce bumpers installed over the spring pack on both ends. These will be 10 inches from the spring attachment points. If you see these, then you have overload springs. You can also have the dealer run your truck's VIN number to see if overload springs were included among the factory options. If you determine...

  • Which 5th Wheel Installation Kits Fit a 2009 Dodge Ram 2500
    If you just need brackets and not a kit that includes the rails, there are a few options for a 2009 Dodge Ram 2500. You could use the Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit, # RP50140. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. The complete kit including rails and all the hardware would be # RP50140-58. If you wanted a semi-custom option, you would need the Reese Universal Kit, # RP30439, and the Reese Mounting Bracket Kit, # RP58186, as you have indicated....

  • How to Determine if a 2003 Dodge Ram has Overload Springs
    I spoke with a local Dodge technician and he told me that you would have to have the VIN number ran by the dealer to determine if your 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 has overload springs. Apparently what they do is run the VIN and pull up the options. However, if overload springs were installed by anyone other than the dealer, they would not have record. We did some further research and found a more definitive answer after talking with Cequent. On the 2500 and 3500 series Dodge Ram, there will...

  • 5TH Wheel Industry Standard Rail Installation Kit That Fits A 2001 Dodge Ram 2500
    I have a recommendation as the Reese Mounting Bracket Kit # RP58186 will only fit select Dodge Ram 2500's starting with the 2003 model year. For your 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 I Recommend the Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit # RP30035 to install your 5th wheel rails in your bed. When installing these rails it is important to have your 5th wheel hitch in place on the rails to ensure proper alignment when tightening down all your hardware. If you need help selecting a hitch...

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab ST Tradesman Edition
    The brackets that you have referenced, # RP58186, are only part of a 5th wheel hitch installation kit. If you have a gooseneck trailer, you are going to need a gooseneck trailer hitch, not a 5th wheel hitch. For a 5-1/2 foot bed the only option is # BWGNRK1309. The installation kit is included. An offset ball, # BWGNXA4685, is recommended to provide 4 more inches of clearance. A Sidewinder is for a 5th wheel trailer, not a gooseneck trailer. It replaces the pin box on a 5th wheel trailer...

  • Reese Semi-Custom 5th Wheel Base Rail Installation in 2018 Ram 1500 with 6-1/2-foot Bed
    Reese Universal 5th Wheel Base Rail kit # RP30035 does require drilling since it is intended to fit a wide range of trucks. The Reese semi-custom base rail kit # RP30035-386 for the 2018 Ram 1500 includes the same base rails and hardware as part # RP30035 but adds semi custom brackets, which by themselves are part # RP58386.

  • Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for 2011 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel For 16K Reese Hitch And Rails
    If the rails you have for your Reese Hitch on your 2011 Dodge Ram Diesel Quad Cab with the 6 ft bed are standard fifth wheel rails, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches, part # RP50140. This kit cuts the installation time in half when compared to universal installation kits. The custom brackets attach to the existing holes in your truck frame. To attach the rails to the underbed brackets you will also need part # RP58430.

  • Can 2015 Ram 1500 with Ram Boxes Tow Fifth Wheel Trailer
    You have a very interesting truck combination, but for your 2015 Ram 1500 with a Rambox there is a solution we can provide that will allow you to tow a fifth wheel trailer. The only way to tow a trailer with a Ram that has the Ram Box is to use a Sidewinder pin box as that moves the pivot point up high enough that the narrower bed rails of the Ram Box trucks would not interfere. You will need to remove the pin box of the trailer and replace it with a Sidewinder pin box. Sidewinders...

  • Is Fifth Wheel Installation Kit Available For 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 With Body Lift Kit
    To be able to install a fifth wheel hitch on your 2003 Ram 3500, I recommend removing the 3 inch body lift first. The body lift kit places a gap between the frame and the bed of the truck and we do not offer any custom brackets or kits that will work with the lift kit installed. If you remove the lift kit I recommend using a custom installation kit like part # RP50140-58 with your fifth wheel hitch. Using a custom kit cuts the installation time in half over universal kits and minimizes...

    There are quite a few options for towing a 5th Wheel trailer with your 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 Mega Cab Dually. To determine the best hitch for your truck, it depends on the bed size. For a 6 foot bed, I recommend 16K Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider, # RP30051. This is a 16,000 capacity hitch with a slider. I have included a link to the instructions below. We also have two 20K capacity hitches, part # RP30083 and part # RP30084. All of these hitches will work with Fifth Wheel Trailer...
