Video Transcript for Curt 5th Wheel Kit Installation - 2008 GMC Sierra

Today on our 2008 GMC Sierra, we'll be installing the Curt custom fifth wheel installation kit, part number C16418-204. Now, here's what our rails look like installed. These rails will work with industry-standard fifth wheel adapters and goose neck adapters. They will fit, depending on the application, on the wide ones, the middle ones, or if you're using a gooseneck adapter, the middle ones right here. They are constructed of a durable steel construction with a durable carbide finish powder coat, which will give us many years of rust and corrosion-free service. Also, our bolts are coated in a zinc material, so you don't have to worry about your bolts rusting out either, making sure your fifth wheel rails will stay in place while you're towing your trailer. Now, what I like about this kit compared to other brands on the market is that our rails do not stick up very high compared to other ones, giving us full access to our truck bed, so if we wanted to lay something down flat, we don't lose much of our height capacity.

Now that we've gone over some of the features of our Curt rails, we'll show you how to get them installed. All right, to begin our installation, we've already removed our spare tires so we have room to get up underneath the truck to install our hardware and both of our rear wheels. You don't have to do that, but for video purposes we did that so you can get a better idea what's going on. Now we've already made our measurements in our bed here for our front rail, for our bed length. They're two different measurements if you have a long bed or a short bed; make sure you use the right measurements for your truck. You get the measurement from the rear edge of the bed. Now, we'll just make sure our rail is centered in our truck bed.

What we're going to do is take a paint marker, we'll mark our appropriate holes. It's the center front hole and all four of our outermost holes. Okay, at this point, I like to point out that your truck bed won't look like ours more than likely. Ours had a gooseneck previously installed and then an underbed fifth wheel system, so we'll just get our rail out of the way and you can see our paint marks. We use a centerpunch here on our paint marks, and we'll drill a pilot hole. We'll do the same for all five of our holes. All right, if you look underneath our truck bed here, where our hole is where our gooseneck hitch used to be, you see that there's a segment of our exhaust heat shield that's already cut out.

In order to install this product, we have to remove a majority of the exhaust heat shield. With this section already gone behind this cross-member, we'll remove the other section right here, cutting along this edge, and back over here, so it'll give us plenty of room to work. We'll just use a cut-off wheel. If you like, you can use tin snips. Now we'll just take our frame brackets, line up the holes, and make sure the holes we drilled in the bed line up with the hole in the frame bracket. We'll check it out on the passenger side as well the same way.

Okay, now that we've verified that our holes line up, we're going to enlarge them to the final size. Use a step bit first and then finish it off with a 9/16 drill bit. Okay, we'll slide our rail back in position now. Drop down our two-inch-long carriage bolts through all of our holes. Now on our outermost holes, they go down through our channel here in our bed, we'll slide in a spacer plate. This will help prevent our bed corrugation from getting crushed and getting pulled on up. Two screws here we need to remove, one's a 10 millimeter and one's like a T-25 Torx bit. There should be a third one over here, but our truck doesn't have it. We'll just remove these. These two, here and here, we'll use to reinstall our electrical connector to the new bracket we're installing. That one, you just keep; you don't need it anymore. Okay, here's the module that we disconnected. In case you're wondering, this is actually your brake controller. Then here is our bracket that we're going to attach it to. Now, you won't have this if your truck doesn't have a factory brake controller installed on it. We'll just take our bracket here, line it up the appropriate way, and then we'll take our screws, run them on through in there, and we'll tighten those down. Okay now we'll take our 3/4"x2"-long bolt, go through the bracket we installed in the brake controller, place on our 3/4" flat washer, take our bracket and go through right here in the big hole in the frame. Okay, now we'll take our frame bracket, slide it in position. Make sure we go through the bottom hole. Then we'll thread on our flange nut. Let's get this loosely started for right now. Now we'll take our large bolt leader, go through our large-diameter hole here, feed it through our frame until it pops out on the back side. I'll take on our flat washer here, so our smaller-sized one, and we'll thread on our shorter 3/4" bolt. Then we'll pull it through our frame. Okay, we're going to take our pull wire off now and we'll install our flange nut. Now that we have our driver's side frame bracket loosely in place, we'll repeat the same process for the passenger's side. Now we'll place our rear rail into position. We're going to use our fifth wheel head to position our back rail in the proper location. All right, after we've made sure that our rail is squared in position with our bed sides and the rear of our bed, we'll make our appropriate marks using our paint marker again. We'll do the rearmost spot in the center, and, unlike our front rail, we'll do the one closest to the outermost hole on both sides. Okay, with those marked, we can now take our head out of the way, center punch our marks, and we'll drill out our holes. Pilot hole made, we'll enlarge it out. We'll do the same for the other four holes. Now we'll drop down our hardware. Now we'll just drop our fifth wheel head back in place. Okay, this will help hold the rails in position while we tighten down all of our hardware underneath. All right, for our middle bolt locations in our rail, we'll slide in a steel spacer so our bed doesn't get crushed, we'll place on a flat spacer here, and then we'll thread on our flange nut. This is on our front rail. Our rear rail is exactly the same way. Okay, for our rear rail, because our bolt comes down through the raised section of our channel, we're going to have one of these spacers here, the U-shaped ones, come up. This will prevent our bed from being crushed. Then we'll have our lock underneath, and then we'll thread on our nut. We'll do the same for all four of the bolts that go through the sides on our rear rail. Okay, now that we have our back rail bolted in place to our frame bracket, we'll do the same for our front rail, except we're not going to have the spacer between our bed and the frame bracket. We'll just have our spacer here on the bottom side of our frame bracket and our nut. Okay, now we'll tighten down our hardware starting with our rails-to-bracket hardware first using a 3/4" wrench. Okay, with all of our hardware now snugged down by hand, we'll do the same process for the other side. Okay, now we'll snug down our frame brackets using an 1-1/8 socket. Now, right above our big bolt in our front of our frame bracket we have this smaller hole. We're going to use our frame bracket as a guide and drill out a 1/2" hole here to install our last remaining hardware. Okay, now we'll enlarge this out to 1/2". Okay, now we'll take our 1/2" carriage bolt lead and our 1/2" carriage bolt . These are the short carriage bolts; we already used all the other ones. Go through our hole, and it'll come out the back of our frame. We'll slide on our plate here, and we'll thread on a carriage bolt. Then we'll stick it inside our frame and pull it on through. Take off our bolt lead, and we'll put on our nut, and we'll snug it on down now. We're going to do the same for the other side. Okay, now we'll torque all of our hardware down the amount specified in the instructions. Okay, with all of our hardware torqued underneath, we'll now torque our frame brackets to the frame. That completes our installation of the Curt custom fifth wheel installation kit, part number C16418-204 on our 2008 GMC Sierra.

Very strong product I would give five stars except the instructions would not be good for an every day truck owner but the E trailer video is really good the only issue with a long bed is you have to drill 4 holes in the front of the frame two on each side and be aware if you do have a long bed truck you will need a big drillbit for instants I used a 7/8 but the overall product is good shipping was great could not imagine having to install the universal brackets and this kit made it so much easier 298145

This is the 4th hitch I have installed over the years so I'm not a novice. I thought I would order the custom kit for ease of installation. Was I wrong. followed the instructions to the letter. I ended up taking my truck to the dealership to drop the fuel tank to reach the front drivers side nut for the front rail. Also on the frame about midway it's double thickness. Tried using the wire provided to "fish" the front bolt in.. Was only enough room to barely get the wire in much less the bolt.. Bought a tap for $45.00 a threaded the frame instead. Over all I should have taken my old system out and put it in this truck. The nuts were welded to the frame and you just insert the bolts and tighten. 182286

Installation was simple enough with the guide. Measurements were spot on and bolted through the bed correctly. The frame rails are a different story...the front holes shown in video were for a short bed. On the long bed version, the two front holes have to drilled on each side. Make sure to tighten the bolts in the bed first to ensure alignment. The driver side frame rail doesn’t allow for the fish wire for the larger of the two bolts, because the fuel tank support straps are directly behind and Chevy made this section of the frame narrower. The bolt must be installed from the outside with a small person, daughter-in-law, holding the nut inside the frame and tighten from the outside. The passenger side, no problems at all. Once those four holes are drilled everything else is a cake walk. May be different on other models than Chevy, but would have been nice to know before and to have a large enough drill bit on hand. If not for the extra drilling and frustration this would have received a 5 star. 859425

This kit was just what I needed. It arrived in good shape and it waited patiently until I had time to install. Many thanks for your video of the installation. I followed to a T and it went together fine. Please note: I don’t have a lift or anything like it. This was done with all four on the ground. Regardless, I’m 67 and managed to get this done in 3 days ! Anybody else could do it in much less time, but I’m pretty methodical and need to take a lot of breaks as it is 105+ in Arizona ! I need to find someplace that I can get it lifted up, so I can get a final torque on the rail mounting bolts. Highly recommend !!!! Thanks ! 831514

Instructions were very easy to follow, diagrams were detailed and clear. The installation itself is a bit of a chore but with simple hand tools and a helper to hold the carriage bolts inside the bed, the install took less than 90 minutes. 670509


Comments
1 Year later, the brackets and rails still look new. the paint hasnt chipped or faded. I interchange a 5th wheel saddle and gooseneck ball plate often and even the paint near the mounting points still looks good.

  • Compatibility of Reese Titan 5th Wheel Hitch with Pro Series Base Rails in 2006 GMC Sierra
    Industry-standard 5th wheel base rails (ISRs) share compatibility with any brand or type of 5th wheel hitch that is designed for this mounting method. Base rails from your Pro Series set up will work fine with a Reese Titan, or a Curt, B&W or any other brand of 5th wheel hitch intended for installation in industry-standard above-bed base rails. Please refer to the linked photo. In your 2006 GMC Sierra 2500 HD Series with 6-1/2-foot bed a custom-fit rail kit like # RP50064-58 will work...

  • Differences Between Reese and Curt Fifth Wheel Rails for a 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
    For a set of fifth wheel rails confirmed to fit your 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500HD it's hard to beat the price of the Curt rails part # C16418-204 that you referenced. Curt says these will take 4 hours to install and the more expensive Reese part # RP50064-58 would take 4 hours to install. Realistically they both would take about the same time as they are pretty similar. The easiest kit to install would be the Reese Outboard rails part # RP56007-53 which are the most expensive but they...

  • 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit for 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Short Bed Using Pull-Rite SuperGlide 3300
    Your Pullrite hitch model 3300 is a type that uses industry-standard above-bed base rails that will accept a compatible 5th wheel hitch from any brand. I recommend a custom-fit install kit since this will reduce drilling requirements and overall installation time. You can use Curt kit # C16418-204 in your 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 short bed. For an in-bed 5th wheel wiring harness you can use kit # C56000 which installs simply by plugging in at your existing 7-way.

  • Can You Mix Fifth Wheel Rail and Bracket Manufacturers
    We can't recommend the mixing of fifth wheel brackets and rail manufacturers. If you have Reese rails you would want a set of Reese brackets. Without knowing what vehicle you have it would be hard for me to recommend the correct brackets to go with your rails. If you have Curt brackets and need rails you would want # C16204.

    Curt does not offer a fifth wheel rail kit fit for the 5-1/2 foot bed version of your 2008 GMC Sierra 1500. The good news is that Reese does and a Curt hitch would fit them just fine. For that you would want the part # RP50064-58 which is a confirmed fit.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch for 2002 Silverado 2500 HD with 6-1/2-foot Bed
    The best type of truck to pull a larger 5th wheel trailer such as a 39-foot Jayco is a 1-ton long-bed. Long beds avoid the issue of too little turning clearance and 1-tons will have the power needed to pull a heavy trailer without strain. They also avoid the need for slider hitches which usually require you to get out of the truck to release the slide before making a tight turn in a campground. Trucks with a 6-1/2-foot bed will require you to use a sliding type hitch unless the trailer...

    According to the towing guide from the manufacturer that I found online, your truck is rated to tow up to 9,900 lbs total. That means you will be able to tow this trailer, but only with limited additional weight. The maximum loaded weight of the trailer will be too much for your truck to tow, so you will need to stay under the 9,900 lbs loaded capacity giving you just 745 lbs of additional cargo from the unloaded vehicle weight.

    The B&W Patriot 5th wheel hitch, like part # BWRVK3270 is compatible with industry standard 5th wheel mounting rails, just like the ones included with the Curt # C16418-204 5th wheel bracket/rail mounting kit.

I've linked to install videos for the bracket/rail kit and for the 7-way harness I mentioned.
