Very good quality product. I have a 2023 Ram 3500 Shortened. The fit needs some work as when I used the dimensions provided the rear bolts on the front rail wouldn't clear a bed channel without a lot of finesse. This should be reviewed and corrected. It turned what should have been a 2 hour install into a 5 or six hour install. It is now so tight I have trouble removing and replacing my Andersen Hitch.

Fast shipping great customer service

I received product earlier than expected !! Product is very good quality ! I will be installing this weekend and will follow up



by:

Good product fit well Heavy Duty got most of the bolts in and torqued took a good amount of time and took it to a mechanic for a couple bolts I didn’t have the tools for, if I did it again I would pay for a shop to put it in, but it’s a well made and good fitting product



by:

Perfect for my needs and installation was a breeze. If these guys sell it you need to seriously consider buying it from them. Customer service, installation and mailer can’t be beat

  • Sidewinder Pin Box and 5th Wheel Hitch for 2016 Ram 3500 Short Box
    The Ram Box feature is not ideal on a short-bed truck that will do 5th wheel towing due to the chance for interference but we have heard of successful Sidewinder installations. The correct 5th Airborne Sidewinder to replace a 1621 or 1621HD pin box is part # RP61422 that you referenced. This box also fits in place of several Fabex and M&M pin boxes. However, since it is rated for only 16K it will not have the necessary capacity for your trailer. We do offer the non-cushioned 20K-rated...

  • Will a B&W Companion for the Ram Prep Package Work with Rotating Pin Boxes and my Ram Box Bed?
    To keep your fifth wheel from hitting the bed rail sides or Ram Boxes you are going to get that clearance from where the pin box is mounted in the wing plates on the camper itself you can raise or lower it to achieve the clearance you need for those Ram Boxes. You can also adjust your head in the Companion upwards by changing where the pivot arms are bolted in (see video below) at the 1:50 mark. We recommend at least 4" if not closer to 6 or 7" of clearance. If your are close to the 4"...

  • Recommended Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for 2013 Ram 2500 Short Bed
    Either the Curt # C16541 A20 Fifth Wheel Hitch w/ Slider with its 20K capacity or the 20K Capacity B&W BWRVK3270 Patriot Sliding Fifth wheel hitch would be a great choice. Both hitches are high quality, and would offer you a secure, relatively smooth ride. For the Curt hitch, use the # C16430-204 rail kit or for the B&W Patriot, use # BWRVK2605. My only issue with bed rail mounted hitches is the fact that the rails remain in the bed when you're not using the hitch. If you don't use the...

  • Can Anderson Ultimate 5th Wheel Hitch Be Used With Sidewinder Pin Box
    I have another option but unfortunately neither the Anderson Ultimate 5th Wheel Hitch or the B&W Turnover ball gooseneck hitch are compatible with a rotating pin box like the Reese sidewinder you mentioned. Instead I recommend using the B&W Companion Slider Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # BWRVK3400 which will install into the B&W Turnover ball already installed on your 2017 Ram Short Bed, and will give you 12" of front to back travel for additional clearance when making...

  • B and W Patriot Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ram 3500 Short Bed
    While 6-1/2 foot is longer than most truck short beds it's still recommended to go with a slider hitch so that you can make tight turns unless the nose of your trailer is tapered to allow for short bed clearance. So for a slider hitch the B and W Patriot Slider part # BWRVK3270 would be the way to go. Then for a custom rail kit for your 2017 Ram 3500 you'd want the part # BWRVK2605 and you'd be set.

  • Industry Standard Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2016 Silverado 3500HD
    I have a solution that would work perfectly for you, but as of right now (March 2016) B and W does not have a set of industry standard fifth wheel rails for your 2016 Chevy Silverado. Since the rails you are wanting to install in the bed of your truck are industry standard rails you could simply go with a different brand of industry standard rails and your fifth wheel hitch would install just fine. The Curt custom rail kit part # C16411-204 is priced great and would fit your truck and...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2014 3500 Series Dodge Ram Pickup with 8 Foot Bed
    If your 2014 Ram has the OEM puck system, I suggest the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch, # BWRVK3600. If you do not have the puck system, then I suggest the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # BWRVK3255 for an 18K hitch. Or, the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # BWRVK3200 for a 16K model. Each of these options will install with the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches, # BWRVK2605. These custom brackets reduce the amount of time required to...

  • 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit Fit for a 2019 Ram 3500
    The Reese Universal Base Rails # RP58058 can technically fit your 2019 Ram 3500 short bed if you use the Universal Installation Kit # RP30439, but since this requires you to drill holes in your truck frame I recommend using the B&W Custom Installation Kit # BWRVK2605 because it still gives you industry standard base rail connections and you don't have to drill into your truck frame. As of right now (March 2020) Reese doesn't have a custom bracket kit for the standard base rail system so...

  • Will B&W Base Rails on 2014 Ram 3500 Work with Hensley TS3 and BD3 5th Wheel Hitch
    The B&W Custom Installation Kit # BWRVK2605 referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 2014 Ram 3500. This kit features industry standard, above-bed base rails that will work with most fifth-wheel hitches on the market. Based on my research, both the Hensley TS3 and BD3 Air Ride 5th Wheel Hitches are designed to fit industry-standard base rails, so either option will work perfectly with the B&W kit on your truck. I have attached an installation video for this kit on the 2013...

  • Best Option For 5th Wheel Hitch, 2019 Ram 3500 With B&W Turnoverball Already Installed
    While the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches, # BWRVK2605 is the correct kit for your 2019 Ram 3500, it will not fit with the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # BWGNRK1320 that you already have installed. They each mount using the same hole locations. I recommend you use the B&W Turnoverball set up and add the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # BWRVK3500-5W.

  • Custom Fit Industry Standard Rail Kit for a 2021 Dodge Ram 3500 Dually Mega Cab
    Yes, the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches item # BWRVK2605 is a confirmed fit for your 2021 Dodge Ram 3500 Dually Mega Cab. These rails are industry standard and will work with compatible 5th wheel hitches. The custom-fit brackets mount to existing holes in your Ram's frame.

  • Weight of B&W Patriot 16K 5th Wheel Hitch BWRVK3200
    If you intend to purchase a 5th wheel trailer that has a Revolution or Sidewinder pivoting pin box for use with your 2013 Ram 2500 short bed then you will not need a sliding-type hitch and can use a fixed hitch of your preference. However, the excellent B&W Companion 20K hitch # BWRVK3500-5W, which mounts using the gooseneck install kit # BWGNRK1313-5W, is not compatible with any type of pivoting pin box. You are correct that B&W makes a serious product. Their 5th wheel hitches are produced...

    The Curt Crosswing # C86JR is compatible with ISR rails so is a multitude of options for your 2014 Ram 3500 with a 6-1/2' bed. If you have just a standard bed you'll want the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2605. This rail kit has custom fit brackets that require no drilling into the frame to install, which will save a ton of time and frustration.

  • 2019 Dodge Ram 3500 with 6.5 box with Ram Boxes
    The challenge presented by the Ram boxes is the inside bed width (or lack thereof). During turns, especially while cresting a rise or going through a dip, the edge of the pin box can strike the inside edge of the top of the bed side and damage it. Additionally, the narrow width of the bed will usually interfere with the operation of the hitch latching handle. The only surefire solution we're aware of is twofold. You'll want to use a Reese Sidewinder Replacement Rotating Pin Box on your...

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch Option for a 2020 Ram 3500 with RamBox
    The best option for a fifth wheel hitch for a 2020 Ram 3500 with RamBox is the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # BWRVK3255. The hitch has a thick dual jaw design which grips the kingpin tight thereby providing a smooth ride and a cam-action handle which allows you to uncouple on uneven terrain. In order to use this hitch you'll also need the B&W Custom Installation Kit part # BWRVK2605, the Sidewinder Wedge Kit part # RP74FR, and a rotating pin box like the Reese Sidewinder 5th...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2018 Ram 3500
    My recommendation of a 5th wheel hitch will be dependent on the size of the bed on your 2018 Ram 3500. For a 6-1/2 foot bed I recommend the sliding B&W Patriot # BWRVK3270 or for an 8 foot long bed the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3255. To add base rails to your '18 Ram 3500 you will then use the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2605. Finally, if you need a 5th wheel wiring harness I recommend part # C56000.

  • Fifth Wheel Towing with 2016 Ram 3500 Equipped with Ram Boxes
    The problem isn't with the hitch fitting, the problems are that the 5th wheel's pin box strikes the sides of the bed during turns. The only way a fifth wheel hitch can be used in a Ram Box equipped truck would be to use a Reese Sidewinder. The sidewinder moves the pivot between the trailer and the hitch from where the king pin and hitch jaws meet to where the pin box attaches to the 5th wheel. This moves the pivot point 22 inches rearward, preventing the pin box from hitting the sides of...
