Video Transcript for Curt 5th Wheel Kit Installation - 2014 Ford F-250

Today on our 2014 Ford F-250 we'll be installing the Curt custom fifth wheel installation kit, part number C-1-6-4-2-4-dash-2-0-4. Here's what our rails look like once they've been installed. As you can see, it hardly takes up any space over our bed. Our bed is still very usable. They don't stick out an excessive amount from the bottom of our bed. It's a nice clean installation, a very durable power coat finish on them.

They'll give us many years of service. We'll be able to attach multiple different devices to them such as fifth wheels, goose neck adapter plates and any other thing that utilizes fifth wheel rails. He's what our installation kit comes with. We have our fifth wheel rails, our frame brackets and all of our installation hardware we need, including one fish wire. Then there's a bracket to relocate a sensor underneath the vehicle. We may or may not need this part. We'll begin our installation by placing our front rail on the bed of our truck at the prescribe distance found in the instructions.

Then we'll center it along our weld seam. Right here on the weld seam, we're an eight of an inch short of three inches. It's the same here so we know we have it in our bed square. Compare that measurement to the measurement on the other side. Eighth of an inch short of three and an eight of an inch short of three.

Now we know we have our rail on the proper position. Our rear outer hole on our front rail, we need to mark and center punch it. We'll do the same on both locations. All right. Now we're on the driver side of our vehicle. We'll hold our driver side frame bracket in position, making sure the hole we center punch lines up.

You can see we have our bracket in place. There's where our center punch is so it lines up about right in the middle so we're perfect there. We'll double check on the other side real quick. Now we'll drill a pirate hole where we made our indentions in the bed using the punch. Now we'll have to use our step bit and we'll drill all of our holes to a nine sixteenths. We'll repeat the same process on the other side. We're going to hold our driver side frame rail in place and, from underneath the vehicle, we will install our hardware to hold it into position. We have the bolts installed on the spacer. We will go right in this hole here, we'll install the bolt through like so. Come on the other side and we'll place our nut on to hold the bracket in place. We do the same as we did for the other bolt right here on this lower forward hole right here. Twist your nut on. We'll repeat the same process on the passenger side. With our frame rails attached now, we'll drop down our carriage bolts for our front rail. With our front rail in position and our two carriage bolts drop down, we set our unassembled fifth wheel into position over the front rail so we have the location to align our rear rail up into position now. We'll get our rear rail slid as close as possible, lift up on our slider. Now we'll take one of our U-shaped spacers and we'll install it between our bed corrugation and our frame bracket, wrap it around the bolt that we dropped down. May need to twist it in position with a pry bar. With our fifth wheel attached to our front and rear rails, we can now drill out our holes for our rear rail. We're going to be using the outermost hole on both sections of the rail. Drill a pilot hole first. With all of our outside holes drilled, we'll drill a pilot hole for our rear rail, back position closest to the tailgate center hole. We'll do the center hole on the back section of our front rail and then we'll finish drilling pilot holes for our front rail on the remaining outer holes. Now we'll enlarge all of our holes to the final size. With all of our holes enlarged, we'll drop down our remaining bolts. With all ten of our bolts now dropped down from up top, we can go underneath and install the rest of our hardware. We want to make sure we put our U-spaced spacers in where our bed is raised in the corrugation. You'll have these on all the outside holes. You just slide it in position like that. You have your other place here and then your nut. We'll do these on all of the bolts on the outside edge attaching to our bracket. Some of these you may need to push the bolts up in order to slide the spacer on through and then drop the bolt on back down. We have all of our spacers inside our raised channel or our bed. We put these blocks on again and the nut. For the middle bolts in our bed, inaudible 00:06:34, slide our U-shaped spacer in. We have our last U-shaped spacers in place now and these are in place so when we tighten down the bolts in our bed, it will keep the bed from crushing. We place this block on and then our nut, and we'll do the same on the rear rail. This is the front rail we're doing right now. Now we'll take our large bolt and this spacer, drop the bolt on down through it and we'll install this through our vehicle frame and into our side frame brackets. Right above our bump stop here, there's this large hole in the frame and the bolt will go through there just like that. We'll install our nut onto it. We'll repeat the same process for the other side. Now we can snug down all the fasteners. With all of our hardware snugged out, we'll tighten all the bolts to the specifications found in the instructions, starting with our small ones first. Then we'll finish off with our big ones. Our big bolts get a much higher mount than our smaller bolts so just keep that in mind. Once we get all of our bolts tightened down to their specifications, that will complete our installation of the Curt custom fifth wheel installation kit, part number C-1-6-4-2-4-dash-2-0-4 on our 2014 Ford F-250.

Purchased this hitch, install kit, and wiring harness for a new to me 2015 F-250. After watching the installation video and reviewing the included instructions the install went smoothly. The only deviation from the instructions was instead of using a unibit to drill the 9/16" holes in the bed I used a Rotobroach hole cutter(the holes are cleaner and the bit does not drift. I hooked in to my fifth wheel for the first time on Saturday. 699220

I put this on my 2015 F-250 mostly by myself yesterday...BTW, ordered on a Monday late evening and had product on my property Friday noon with regular free shipping! Definitely used the video to help with installation. It really helps to have a jack that gets the vehicle high enough to work on to give you some room under the truck...(Don't forget safety jacks too!). Impact wrench is a huge help--saves time, so if you can have one for this job it is a pleasure! I used my Milwaukee 1/2" M18 impact wrench a lot. Need to take wheels off, drop spare also. The whole job, including Curt A16 5th Wheel and harness took about 4 hours for me, with some help placing bolts so I wouldn't have to go under and over to the bed a bunch of times. Two people is better, but can do by yourself. Quality seems to be good and fitment is very nice. Great job all around etrailer.com!! 371332

The kit came with everything needed and the install was time consuming but simple. The rails and frame brackets have a sturdy design and a nice finish. The frame brackets fit perfectly as if the truck manufacturer designed them themselves. On my truck, it was advantageous to remove the spare tire to gain access above the fuel tank. The hardest part was drilling that first hole in my truck. 709522

I ordered this product on Friday, September 7th, 2018 at around 8am. I received my package Monday, September 10th, 2018, which was incredibly quick. So thank you for that. I noticed that on the big “E-Trailer” box, there was a gash in the box. As I opened the e-trailer box, 2 of the gold flange nuts where there, just rolling around. I took the rails out, and made sure that no other hardware was in the big box. After I made sure the rails where going to match the hitch that I have(SuperGlide 2300), I opened the Curt box(which also had about a 6” gash in it, and all of the hardware was in the box. Nothing in the ripped open hardware bag, except for the instructions. I then got incredibly nervous, hoping that none of the hardware fell out of both boxes, and was missing. Luckily, all the hardware was there. As I took the frame rails out, I noticed that they were scratched, and dinged(most likely from the free rolling hardware, and abuse the package took while being shipped). However, the whole installation process was easy, and the instructions made it easy install. The products are extremely durable(in my opinion). So, I gave it three stars because of the packaging, and the “damage” that the product received. However, I give the actual product 5 stars. 564120

This is the 2nd time I have installed a Curt Custom 5th wheel installation kit. This time it was for a 2014 Ford F250 short bed. As usual the customer service and delivery was outstanding. I watched the video and read the instructions and installation was very uneventful. No missing or spare parts ! Took about 3 1/2 hours and I was working alone. The custom brackets are the only way to go! Installed my sliding hitch and took the 5th wheel on a test drive. I have been an etrailer customer for years and have always received exceptional service and fast delivery ! 555699

Well built! Assembly was simple, directions were accurate and easy to follow. Contained all hardware needed. A strong magnet inside of frame to hold bolts in place while starting the nuts makes for a one man install. Would buy again for sure. 554428

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2016 Ford F-250

Kit # C16424-204 has a carbide finish making it more flat or matte black. Kit # C16424-104 has a gloss finish making it more shiny.
