Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel Kit Installation - 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Today on our 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit, part number C16411-204. So here's what our rails look like fully installed. They're going to allow us to mount a fifth wheel trailer hitch and pull a fifth wheel trailer. And when we're not towing with our fifth wheel, we can go ahead and pull the hitch out and with the hitch out of the bed we're only going to be taking up about an inch of vertical space in our truck bed. Now this is a custom fit application, so it's going to cut down the installation time and require less drilling than most universal kits. These are designed to work with most industry standard above the bed fifth wheel hitches. This is also going to work well with several different goose neck adapters, which is going to be nice if you don't want to cut a big hole in the middle of your bed. It's going to feature a carbide powder coat finish which is going to complement any color truck. Now that we've gone over some of the features, let's show you how we get it installed.

To begin our installation we're going to need to take a few measurements. The numbers are in the kit in the instructions and depending on whether you have a long bed or a short bed truck, those measurements might be a little bit different. So I'm going to go ahead and make a few marks so I know where my measurements are. I'm going to go across the bed, that way I know it's going to be nice and level. Now that we have our measurements marked out, we're going to take the flat edge of our rail here and we're going to lay it down right on where we just made those marks. And now we're going to need to measure our rail and the width of our bed and make sure that we're nice and centered.

Once you have your rail put into position, go ahead and find the center point and make any adjustments on where your rail needs to be. Next, we can go ahead and take a paint marker when we have everything centered up. I'm going to mark the outermost holes of these square holes, as well as the center one. On this bar, we're going to be marking towards the rear of the truck. With the holes marked we're going to move our rail out of the way and using a 1/8" drill bit, I'm going to drill some pilot holes where I just marked. You're going to want to try to get it as centered as you can, and we're going to repeat that with all of those marks that we made. Now we're going to come to the side of our frame here, and I'm going to take my frame bracket.

This is the driver's side. The way we're going to know the difference between the driver's side and the passengers side is with these tabs going in towards the truck, we're going to have this square cut at almost an angle. That's going to go towards the rear, and on the front is going to be more rounded. Now we're going to take our bracket and we're going to go up in between the frame and the bed, and it's going to mount right here. I'm just going to take some loose hardware and for now I'm just going to put it in the slots of the frame to hold it in position. To make sure that everything's lining up, I'm going to take my drill bit that I used to drill my holes and I'm going to poke it through, then I'm going to go back underneath the truck and make sure that I can see my drill bit going through the bracket and the bed of my truck, that way I know everything's lined up.

Once we do this for the driver's side, we're going to go to the passenger's side and do the same thing and make sure everything's nice and square. Now that we know that our rails are centered on our truck, I'm going to come back with a step drill bit and I'm going to drill out the pilot holes that I drilled out to a 9/16" hole. Now we're going to drill all the rest of the remaining holes out as well. We're going to take our frame bracket again now that the holes are drilled out and loosely put it into position. Now we're going to start out with an M14 bolt followed by a 5/8" lock washer, and finally a 5/8" flat washer. Now we're going to raise this into position and if we look at our frame, we're going to have an oval hole towards the front. We're going to be using the threaded hole here and lining up our two holes in our bracket with these two holes. So we line up our bracket. We can take our hardware and loosely put it into place. Then we can come to the back threaded hole and put our rear hardware in. Now we can do the same thing on the passenger's side with our passenger's side frame bracket. Now we can come back into our bed and we're going to take our mounting bracket here and we're going to line it back up with the holes that we drilled. We're going to take our hardware and take a 1/2" carriage bolt and put it through our bracket. Before we do as you can see here on the edge here, our hole is actually below the rib. They provided us with some spacers and we're just going to slide it underneath. That way when we put our bolt in we won't have to worry about crushing the bed, crushing the ribs on our bed, and it will give us some extra support. So anywhere that he rail is not perfectly flush with the rib, go ahead and put that spacer in and we're going to put our carriage bolts through all the holes that we drilled. Now with our first rail and hardware in place, we're going to come underneath and we're going to take one of these square spacer blocks followed by a 1/2" flange nut and we're going to tighten everything up with our hardware coming through. It might be a little bit hard to see, but this is going to be the end result with a plate underneath and our flange nut holding everything in place. Now with that one in place we're going to put the rest of our hardware and all the other remaining bolts. Our center bolts here, just like I mentioned before, is in a middle section of the rib. So underneath we're going to take our spacer block, we're going to go around the bolt like that, then we're going to come back with the square holed spacer and we're going to put it on top of that. And then finally we're going to tighten it up with a 1/2" flange nut. We're just going to put everything loosely in place right now so we don't have to worry about our hardware falling out. Now that we have our front mounting bracket and our frame brackets in, we went ahead and put our fifth wheel in that we're going to be using and that's going to determine where our second mounting plate is going to be mounted. What we're going to do is we're going to lift up on here and put it into the slots on our other bracket towards the rear. That will give us the exact location and then we can mark and drill our holes. Once we have our fifth wheel in place we want to make sure that our mounting bracket is square with our truck bed and it's not crooked or misaligned. We're going to go ahead and mark our holes. With our rear plate here, we're not going to be using the outermost holes, we're going to be using the second ones on the inside. If we come to the center, we're going to be using the hole that's closest to our tail gate. Now that we have all of these marked out, we're going to go ahead and lift up my fifth wheel and slide this out of the way so I can go ahead and start drilling my holes. I'm going to go ahead and drill my pilot holes again, and then I'll come back and enlarge them to a 9/16" hole, just like we did with the front rail. With the holes enlarged and drilled, we can go ahead and put our rail back in place. And again we want to make sure that our holes line up. If we need to we'll go ahead and use our spacers, but since this is on the rib we can just go ahead and drop down our hardware into the hole. Now we're going to put our hardware in place just like we did with our other bracket. First we're going to have our U-shaped spacer go around our bolt, followed by a square holed spacer, and then finally we're going to follow it up with our 1/2" flange nut. Again we're just going to put all of this hand tight for now, just so we don't lose our hardware. Now we can do the hardware on the sides. Now on our side plate we're going to take one of our square plate washers here. We're going to go up over the stud and then we're going to follow it up with our 1/2" flange nut. We're going to repeat the same process for all the remaining hardware. On the rear here you can see there's quite a bit of a gap on our plate here. To prevent the ribs in our bed from crushing, we're going to take more of those U-shaped spacers and we're just going to slide them into place right around our bolt. That way when we tighten it up we don't have to worry about crushing the ribs in our bed. With everything loosely in place we're going to come back and using a 3/4" socket, we're going to tighten down all my half inch hardware to the specified amount in the instructions. We're going to repeat that process for the remaining hardware we have left. When all of our 1/2" hardware underneath are truck torqued, we're going to come back to our M14 bolts here and we're going to torque them down to the specified amount in the instructions. We're going to repeat that process for all of the remaining hardware. And that will finish up our look at the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit, part number C16411-204 on our 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500.

Fast shipping product fit perfect more than happy with it.Ordered the universal fit after seeing all the holes in my frame two with threaded holes I decided to order the custom fit glad I did . Now I might try to return other one.only dislike the over 200 ft-lbs torque my torque wrench don’t go that high,if it did I don’t even weigh that .Great product. 511695

The product (Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Chevy/GMC - Carbide Finish) was exactly right for our 2018 Chevy SIlverado HD. It came so quickly that we had it installed before the weekend and could move our fifth wheel to its new site. We couldn't have asked for a more conscientious sales person. Chrissy was with us every step of the way to insure we got the product, with all the information we needed to install it quickly and correctly. Etrailer is a phenomenal company which obviously knows the importance of great employees. Thank you Chrissy and thank you etrailer. 520688

Whew! Installing that Rail kit about kicked my butt! The reason why is all the trips I made from underneath the truck and back. The Rail kit is a very high Quality Product from Curt that fits perfectly in the bed of my truck. The hardware is also high quality. One downside is there isn't a lot of room to work as the gas tank on one side and the exhaust on the other side prevents easy access (gas tank in particular). It was very hard to get a wrench on the nuts unless you used a Gearwrench. After the install they are torqued to 110 ft-lb. The only way to do that was to put a 1 inch adapter on the torque wrench then put that in the open end of the gearwrench in the adapter. Then using a formula on line, convert that to what you have to ft-lb. Anyway It was worth it because I know I have a good product that will stand the test of time. 402242

I feel that the installation video simplifies the process to much. Attaching the frame plates with the bolt fish wire was more difficult than the video showed. I am to blame for the first bolt. We started on the left side and fished the back bolt first. I did not check to see if the wire would go through both plate and bolt once threaded onto the bolt. I just placed the plate on the wire and then threaded the bolt onto the wire and pulled or tried to pull it through the frame hole. The wire was "bunched" on part of the bolt and would not feed through the frame and the plate holes. I stretched the wire to the point I thought I was going to lose the bolt in the frame. We ended up getting the bolt back out and using the other fish wire to feed this bolt through. We made sure we could fit both the plate and bolt through together before fishing it through the frame. Once we did one the other three went a lot easier but we only had one fish wire to use. I had watched the installation video several times and played it while we were working. The video is good but it makes the process seem to easy. I would like to see the video have more details about this process and have 4 fish wire instead of 2 or tell people you may want to have two more on hand for piece of mind. 438361

This is a great product, but the install time estimates are way off. I have been a mechanic in my own shop for 19 years and I didn’t remove the rear wheels or the spare tire (because) it wasn’t necessary on my truck. I have a lift in my shop and it still took me 6 hours to install it! Trying to hold the spacers while trying to get the nuts installed on the 8 outer through the bed bolts was ridiculous! Terrible place to get to, lots of bad words! I’m thinking that buying the custom kit versus the universal was a bad idea, I have installed both and it was no quicker with this kit and it was almost a hundred dollars higher. My install was on a 2013 2500hd. 729381

  • Customer 5th Wheel Base Rail Recommendation for a 2016 GMC Sierra 2500
    For a custom 5th wheel rail kit that fits your 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 I recommend the Curt # C16411-204 which fits both a 6-1/2' bed and an 8' bed. This custom kit keeps you from having to drill into the frame of your Sierra and it provides you with industry standard base rails that your Q5 16525 and R5 roller are compatible with. If your 2016 Sierra doesn't already have a 7-Way wiring connector in the bed then you may also be interested in the Curt # C56070 to make connecting and disconnecting...

This means that the hitch will in fact work perfectly with the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16411-204 that you referenced in your question. You will not need to purchase any other part or adapter to make the two systems compatible. This industry-standard base rail kit includes custom-fit brackets that will use existing holes in...

    The Curt fifth wheel rail kit part # C16411-204 that you referenced is perfectly compatible with the Reese 20k fifth wheel slider you have. These are made to the industry standard for fifth wheel rail dimensions which means a Reese hitch would fit them just as well as a Curt hitch would. I attached an install video for this kit for you to check out as well. These are great rails that are quality-wise just as good as any other brand including Reese.

You can see the video by clicking the link I've provided for you. If you haven't already installed a 7-way trailer connector into your truck bed, you could do so using part # 41157. I've also linked you to an install video for that.

  • Do Holes in the Frame of a 2016 Chevy Silverado 3500 get Used for Install of Fifth Wheel Rails
    Some of the holes that you referenced on the side of the truck frame are used for the install of a custom fit set of fifth wheel trailer rails. None of the threaded holes would be used though. The part # C16411-204 is a rail kit that will fit your truck that does use some of those holes. I attached a picture that shows the brackets of the kit installing through the frame plus a link to an install video for more info as well.

  • Compatibility of Reese 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Curt 5th Wheel Mounting Brackets/Truck Bed Rail Kit
    The Curt # C16411-204 fifth wheel install bracket/rail kit for your 2014 GMC Sierra 2500 is compatible with industry-standard fifth wheel rails which is what Reese uses. I've contacted Reese and confirmed that although the hitch you referred to was discontinued in 2009, it did indeed use industry standard bed rails. The hitch would be compatible with the Curt 5th wheel bracket/rail kit you mentioned. Quality wise, I would consider the Curt and Reese rail kits to be equivalent. To...

  • Where to Install the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Brackets in Kit # C16411-204 on a 2017 Gmc 2500 HD
    I was able to look up your order and saw that you had ordered the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Installation Kit # C16411-204 which is a confirmed fit for both your 2013 and your 2017 GMC 2500 HD. There are 2 different measurements that are in the instructions for the # C16411-204. The place where you install them is relative to the size of your truck bed. For the short bed (6-1/2 feet) you will install the forwardmost (closest to the cab) bracket so the the rearmost edge is 47-1/2 inches...

  • 5th Wheel Install Kit and Slider Hitch Recommendation for 2015 GMC Sierra Duramax Diesel Short Box
    A fixed 5th wheel hitch cannot be used in your 2015 GMC Sierra Duramax diesel with 6.5-ft box. Short bed trucks like yours must use a sliding 5th wheel hitch in order to have enough clearance for tight turns. In terms of an installation kit I recommend a custom type since this will reduce overall install time and eliminate the need to drill into the truck's frame for the under-bed brackets. These will mount to existing holes in the frame. I suggest the Curt # C16411-204. For a sliding...

  • Does Curt Fifth Wheel Rail Kit for 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 Thread Into Threaded Frame Holes
    The Curt fifth wheel rail kit part # C16411-204 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 with a short bed. But it does not install in the threaded frame holes you have on your truck. Since this is a custom fit hitch it will not require drilling of the frame for installation, but the install holes used are not the threaded ones you have found. If you want to see how this hitch installs I attached a link to the install instructions plus an install video.

  • Will Curt Fifth Wheel Rail Kit # C16411-204 Fit a 2016 Chevy Silverado High Country 2500

  • Why are Curt and Reese Fifth Wheel Rail Kits for 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 in Different Bed Locations
    The center of a fifth wheel hitch jaw needs to be either directly above the axle center or slightly forward. So either kit still works fine. Having the jaw center slightly forward of the axle helps distribute a small portion of the trailer weight to the front axle as well, but you have to be careful not to go too far forward as that reduces clearance between the cab of the truck and the nose of the trailer. So that's why typically right over the rear axle is used. You don't want to load...

  • No Drill Fifth Wheel Rail Install Kit Recommendation for a 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500
    There are holes in the frame of your 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500 that the Curt fifth wheel install kit part # C16411-204 is designed to fit. That is why there is no drilling required to install this kit. You will still need to drill through the truck bed. But that would be it. I attached an install video for this rail kit for you to check out as well. For a fifth wheel hitch the Curt Q20 part # C16130 that you referenced would be an excellent choice as well.

For a custom kit designed to work with your vehicle, I recommend the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Chevy/GMC - Carbide Finish, Item # C16411-204.

  • How to Tell if 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 has OEM Rail Kit
    The OEM rail kit/package that your 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 could have came with would look like 5 pucks in the bed of the truck that a hitch would fit into. If you look into the bed of your truck and you don't see any mounting hole you wouldn't have it. Most likely you'd know if you did though since they are pretty noticeable. I attached a picture that shows what it looks like for you to check out as well. If you don't have the OEM rail kit the Curt kit part # C16411-204 is the correct...

  • Is It a Good Idea to Lock Out Reese Revolution?
    I'm not sure what you mean by towing would be better, but I do not see how that would be accurate or how moving the pivot point to the king pin would be an upgrade. At the very least you would need a sliding hitch with your 6-1/2 foot bed if you locked out your Revolution, though I strongly recommend continuing to use the Revolution as is. There would be no way for me to know what the turning radius is though we do have a formula you can use: (A + B) - C = Clearance A = Distance...
