  • Base Rails For a B&W Patriot 18k Slider 5th Wheel Hitch in a 1999 Ford F-350
    If you are wanting to maintain the use of your B&W Patriot hitch while getting a custom set of installation rails then you will not be able to use B&W rails. The only B&W rails that work for your 1999 Ford F350 are universal rails. You can use a set as rails such as the Demco Hijacker Premier Series Above-Bed Base Rails and Custom Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Hitches # DM8552006-71.

  • Options to Extend Hitch Connection to help Make Turns on a 2002 Ford F-350 with 6-3/4 Bed
    The best option for you to increase the clearance needed to make turns with your 2002 Ford F-350 short bed truck would be to upgrade to a slider hitch that has a longer travel length. The Demco Hijacker Autoslide Hitch, # DM8550034 with # DM8552006-71 Custom Installation Kit, is a 5th wheel hitch that has an auto slide design that will give you 14 inches of additional clearance for making tight turns.

  • How to Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2004 Ford F-350 with a 6-3/4 Foot Bed
    Yes, you can tow a fifth wheel trailer with your 2004 F-350 short bed. The short bed of your truck is 6-3/4 feet long which mean you'll want either a sliding fifth wheel hitch in your truck or a Sidewinder or Revolution pin box on the trailer to make sure you have adequate clearance between the truck and trailer when making sharp turns. This is because the truck's short bed will not always provide enough space between the truck cab and trailer and they can make contact. A Sidewinder...

  • What Type of Fifth Wheel Rails Does Demco Hijacker Premier Series Hitch Fit
    The Demco Hijacker Premier Series part # DM6076P-21K does require a set of industry standard fifth wheel rails installed in the bed of the truck. If you have a Hijacker hitch already this will fit the same rails you have now but if you are looking for a set that fits your 1999 Ford F-250 you'd want the part # DM8552006-71.

  • Auto-Slide Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2002 Ford F250 Short Bed
    Yes, that does provide enough information. From a quick online search, it shows that your 2008 Keystone Cougar 276RLS is well under 18K, for this, I recommend the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch. You have two options, my recommendation, is to install with the below bed rails, using hitch # DM8550022 and rail installation kit, # DM8551000. The benefit of the below bed kit is a rail-free design that allows for full access to truck bed when hitch is removed. Or the second...

  • Installation Videos For 5TH Wheel Rail Installation On a 2001 Ford F-250
    While we do not have a video of the Demco Hijacker Premier Series Above-Bed Base Rails and Custom Installation Kit # DM8552006-71 being installed on your 2001 Ford F-250 we do have a video of a similar Reese Kit # RP30035 being installed that I have linked below on a 2002 F-250. Both these kits use universal brackets that will require drilling into your trucks frame to install the rails. And since they both have the industry standard rail pattern they will allow for the same 5th wheel hitches...

  • Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch for 2003 Ford F250 Short Bed
    We do indeed have an auto sliding 5th wheel hitch. The Demco Hijacker Autoslide is available in an 18K capacity as # DM8550022 or in a 21K capacity as part # DM8550037. Both hitches install using Demco's under-bed rail kit, part # DM8551000. For a Hijacker Autoslide that mounts to industry standard rails that install on the surface of the truck bed, use # DM8550034 for the 18K or # DM8550035 for the 21K model. These hitches would use the # DM8552006-71 bracket/rail kit. If you'd like...

  • Best 5th Wheel Clearance For 2016 Ford F150 With 5.5 Bed, Also Weight
    My first choice for a 5th wheel hitch system, in a 5.5 foot pickup bed, where weight is a concern, would be the B&W # BWRVK3200 Fixed 5th Wheel hitch and # BW39FR Base rails, paired with a Reese # RP61422 5th Airborne Air Ride with Sidewinder. This assumes you have a number 1621 pin box bolt pattern. (If the four digit bolt pattern number is different let me know and I can pick one that will match with your pin box side wings.) The hitch base weighs 95 pounds and the top coupler section...

    The Firestone Ride-Rite air bags that fit your 2002 Ford F-350 are the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2550, and according to the manufacturer, these ARE compatible with an in-bed hitch, so you can definitely add a 5th wheel hitch to your truck.
