    For just the brackets of the # DM8552020-71 you would just need the part # DM8552020. This will be just the bracket and hardware of the rail kit you referenced.

  • Can 2014 Toyota Tundra Tow 8,000 lb Trailer
    There is a pretty wide range for the towing capacity for your 2014 Toyota Tundra with the 5.7 liter V8. Looks to be between 9,000 lbs and 10,400 lbs depending on cab size and 4WD status. That being said you should be fine towing a trailer in the 8,000 lb range. Since you have a standard bed which is 6-1/2 feet long you would need a slider hitch like the Demco Hijacker part # DM8550034 and then a custom install rail kit part # DM8552020-71 which is a confirmed fit for your truck.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for 2011 Toyota Tundra Supercrew 5-1/2 ft Bed
    The 2011 Toyota Tundra Supercrew models have a 5-1/2 foot bed which we have fifth wheel solutions for. The best will be the Demco Hijacker Autoslide part # DM8550040 which is the only slider hitch that will provide you with enough turning clearance for tight turns. Unlike most slider hitches that move back around 12 inches this one moves back 22-1/2 inches automatically as you make tight turns to give you the clearance you need. To install this in the bed of your truck all you need is...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2007 Toyota Tundra 6-1/2 foot Bed
    I attached a picture that shows the difference between the cab styles of your 2007 Toyota Tundra. Basically the CrewMax is a wider set of rear doors. So for a fifth wheel hitch setup that fits your 2007 Toyota Tundra 6-1/2 foot bed we have the Demco Hijacker Autoslide part # DM8550034 which would be your best option. This slider hitch automatically slides back as you make tight turns to allow you cab/trailer clearance. For a rail kit you'd then want the part # DM8552020-71 which is a confirmed...

  • Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2011 Toyota Tundra 5-1/2 foot Bed
    For as short of a bed as your 2011 Toyota Tundra 5-1/2 foot bed has there is only one slider hitch that will give you enough clearance to make a tight turn. For that you'd want the Demco Hijacker part # DM8550040 which will automatically slide back 22-1/2 inches as you make tight turns. Then for a rail kit you'd want the part # DM8552020-71 which is a confirmed fit for your truck. This hitch has a 13k capacity but you'd need to check the owners manual of your truck for the truck's capacity.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Toyota Tundra 5-1/2 foot Bed
    There is one slider fifth wheel hitch that will slide far enough to allow a 5-1/2 foot bed to make sharp turns. For that we have the Demco Hijacker part # DM8550040 which will automatically slide 22-1/2 inches as you turn. For a fifth wheel rail kit the part # DM8552020-71 is a fit for your 2014 Toyota Tundra short bed as well. This hitch has a 13k capacity also.

  • Automatic Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for 2008 Toyota Tundra
    For an automatic sliding fifth wheel hitch for your 2008 Toyota Tundra the Demco Hijacker part # DM8550034 would be a fantastic option. The custom install rail kit you need then is the part # DM8552020-71. The only issue you may have is interference with the air bag kit you have installed. Do you know what brand you have so that I can check to see if it will fit with an in-bed rail kit?

  • Slider Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2008 Toyota Tundra 6-1/2 ft Bed
    Since your 2008 Toyota Tundra has a bed length shorter than 8 feet you will need to go with a slider fifth wheel hitch setup. There isn't a way to give you the needed clearance with a gooseneck setup. There aren't any offset adapters that would provide enough clearance. My favorite slider hitch is the Demco Hijacker Autoslide hitch part # DM8550034 which automatically slides back 14 inches around corners to give you the needed clearance. For a rail kit you then would want the custom install...

    Since you have a short bed truck you have to go with a slider hitch to allow you the needed clearance to make sharp turns.

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch For A 2019 Totyota Tundra With A 5.5 Bed
    The Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Item # DM8550040 and Demco Hijacker Premier Series Above-Bed Base Rails Item # DM8552020-71 will work for your 2019 Toyota Tundra with a 5.5 bed but, you do not want to use both a slider and rotating turret at the same time. The hitch is specifically designed for 5.5 and 6 foot beds. The hitch base is heavy but, the auto slide feature doesn't require you to flip any levers when you want to make a sharp turn to park.

  • Which 5th Wheel Hitch Mounting Brackets and Rails for 2007 Toyota Tundra with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
    The correct 5th wheel hitch mounting hardware and rail kit for your 2007 Toyota Tundra is the Demco Hijacker Premier Series Above-Bed Base Rails and Semi-Custom Install Kit for 5th Wheel Hitches # DM8552020-71. These rails will allow you install a Demco Highjacker Auto-Slide hitch. However, you may run into a problem using this on a 5-1/2 foot bed in that you may not have sufficient clearance when making tight turns. Typically with a truck that has a 5-1/2 Foot bed you'll need a static...

    Since your truck bed is shorter than 6 feet in length a standard slider hitch still wouldn't give you enough turning clearance but we do have one option that would give you enough clearance as it slides back 22-1/2 inches instead of the normal distance which is around 10-12 inches. For that you'd want the Demco Hijacker AutoSlide part # DM8550040 which actually slides back automatically as you make tight turns to give you the needed clearance without requiring you to get out and manually...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for 2016 Toyota Tundra 5-1/2 ft Bed
    For truck's with short beds you have to use a slider hitch so that the truck and trailer will have the needed clearance to make tight turns. Now for trucks that have beds that are shorter than 6 feet it's gets even more difficult as most sliders don't have the travel needed but we do have one hitch that does with the Demco Hijacker Autoslide part # DM8550040 which automatically slides back 22-1/2 inches as you make tight turns so this is what I recommend for you. Then to install the hitch...

    For your 2013 Toyota Tundra with a 5-1/2 foot bed there is only one fifth wheel slider hitch that has enough clearance to allow you to make tight turns without cab interference. For that you'd need the Demco Hijacker Autoslide part # DM8550040 with the custom fit install kit part # DM8552020-71 which fits your truck. Your tailgate will be able to shut with this setup. There isn't a manual slider out there that would have enough turning clearance.

    There is only one fifth wheel hitch solution we have for your 2018 Toyota Tundra with a 5-1/2 foot bed to tow a trailer with the Atwood pin box you mentioned. While most slider fifth wheel hitches will slide back around 12 inches to allow for turning clearance the Demco 13k Auto Slider part # DM8550040 is the only hitch that will slide back 22-1/2 inches which will give your short bed truck the clearance needed.

    For your 2018 Toyota Tundra that has a 5-1/2 foot bed we have one hitch that would have enough sliding clearance to allow you to make tight turns without hitting the cab on the nose of the trailer. For that you'd want the part # DM8550040 with the rail kit part # DM8552020-71 which is a confirmed fit for your truck. This is the only hitch out there that would give you the needed turning clearance and what's really great is that the hitch slides back automatically as you make tight turns.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Install Kit for a 2016 Toyota Tundra Short Bed
    Yes, you can put a slider 5th wheel trailer hitch in your 2016 Toyota Tundra short bed. First you will need an installation kit. I recommend Demco installation kit # DM8552020-71. The kit includes the rails, brackets, and hardware for installation. For a hitch I recommend the 18K HiJacker auto-slide hitch # DM8550034. This hitch provides 14 inches of travel for clearance when making tight turns. And it slides automatically so you won't have to get in and out of the truck to operate the...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Toyota Tundra 6-1/2 foot Bed
    For your 2016 Toyota Tundra we have fifth wheel hitch solutions available, but B and W does not have any fits for the 2007+ Toyota Tundras so I have nothing from them that I can recommend. Instead I would recommend the Demco Hijacker hitch setup that includes part # DM8550034 for the hitch and then part # DM8552020-71 for the rail kit. This is an auto-slider hitch that will allow you to make turns without having to get out and activate a slider every time.

  • What is Fifth Wheel Towing Capacity of 2016 Toyota Tundra Crewmax
    Since your 2016 Toyota Tundra has a capacity of 10,100 lbs towing and your trailer would weigh up to 8,800 lbs when fully loaded you'd be totally safe. As long as you are under the weight capacities you're fine. Since we know your Tundra is a Crewmax we know that means your bed length is 5-1/2 feet which makes towing a fifth wheel trailer a bit more interesting but definitely possible. You'll need the Demco Hijacker Autoslide part # DM8550040 as it's the only slider hitch that will slide...

    The Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Rails and Universal Installation Kit, # C16116 can be made to fit in most any truck including a 2019 Toyota Tundra. However, your super-short truck bed will require use of a rotating pin box, such as the Reese Sidewinder or Revolution and you will still need to verify cab clearance for safety. The formula for determining this is: (A + B) - C = Clearance A = Distance from the fifth wheel jaw center to the truck cab B = Offset used (slider clearance...
