2019 Ram 1500

Product fits 2019 Ram. Quality! However one of the top brace T bar wasn’t threaded all the way and the bolt wouldn't go in all the way. Did what I could then had to weld. Probably just a random thing during manufacturing but took up 2hrs to get it to work. Took all day to install and it’s too close to cab and 5th dented my cab when I turned too much. 816734

It is confirmed to fit both the 5-1/2 foot bed or the 6-1/2 foot bed of the Ram 1500 models.

  • How To Install the Demco Hijacker on a 2019 Ram 1500 with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
    I have sent a copy of the installation instructions for the Demco Hijacker Premier Series Above-Bed Base Rails and Custom Installation Kit part # DM8552032-71 to you as well as attached a few photos from them. These instructions have very detailed photos which you will be able to see so they should give you a very good ideal of what is required. However, as of March 2019 we have not yet had a chance to install them on a 2019 Ram 1500. This kit was also just recently released and so was...

  • Difference Between Demco 5th Wheel Base Rail Kits for 2019 Ram 1500 Versus 1500 Classic
    I reached out to my tech contact at Demco and the 2019 Ram 1500 had two different options. The Demco Hijacker Premier Series Above-Bed Base Rails and Custom Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Hitches # DM8552032-71 is the correct fit for the new 5th generation. If you have the older stock 2018 frame that was being used on some 2019 models then they put the word classic inside the door frame to signify that and then the correct fit would be the # DM8552030-71 instead. I think the installer...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2019 Dodge Ram 1500 Without Air Suspension
    Since your 2019 Ram 1500 5.5 foot bed does NOT have the air ride suspension the fifth wheel rail kit you would Demco # DM8552032-71 which is a confirmed fit and provides rails compatible with Reese fifth wheel hitches. Since your truck bed is so short you will need to use a Sidewinder pin box replacement to allow you to make tight turns. Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you have now in order to pick out the correct one. There should...

  • Weight and Compatibility of Demco and Reese Base Rails with Anderson Ultimate 3200 for 2019 Ram 1500
    The Demco Kit # DM8552032-71 weighs about 75 lbs while the Reese Kit # RP56018-53 weighs about 70 lbs. Both are compatible with the Andersen Ultimate Connection # AM3200 as they provide the industry standard base rail connection that the Anderson Ultimate needs. Please note that these base rail kits are a fit for a 2019 Ram 1500 with either the 5-1/2' or 6-1/2' bed. The Anderson Ultimate Connection could possibly provide enough turning clearance for the 6-1/2' bed (not likely unless...

  • Custom 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit for 2020 Ram 1500 With EcoDiesel Engine & 5-1/2 Foot Bed
    There are a pair of custom 5th wheel base rail and installation kits that fit your 2020 Ram 1500 with an EcoDiesel Engine and 5-1/2 foot bed, from Demco and Reese. You can choose from either, though the Demco rails do NOT fit if your '20 Ram 1500 has the factory Air Suspension system, while the Reese WILL fit if you have the Air Suspension system. - Demco Hijacker Premier Series Above-Bed Base Rails and Custom Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Hitches # DM8552032-71 - Reese Quick-Install...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Install Kit for a Fifth Gen 2019 Ram 1500
    I do have a custom 5th wheel install kit available for your fifth generation 2019 Ram 1500 but the Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # RP50142 is not a confirmed fit. Instead, you will need to use the Demco Above-Bed Base Rails and Custom Installation Kit part # DM8552032-71 which is currently one of the only available options for you so long as you don't have the factory airbags.

  • Do I Need a Sidewinder for a 2019 Ram 1500 with the 5-1/2 Foot Bed
    If you do not want to use a rotating pin box like the Reese Sidewinder on your 2019 Ram 1500 with the 5-1/2' bed then I do have one option, the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer part # DM8550040 paired with the Demco Hijacker Premier Series Above-Bed Base Rails and Custom Installation Kit part # DM8552032-71. The Demco Hijacker is an auto-sliding 5th wheel hitch which means it will move the connection point back away from the cab while making a sharp turn. This will eliminate...

  • Installing B and W Patriot Hitch 2020 Ram 1500 5-1/2 ft bed Towing Trailer with Turning Point
    I have a solution to allow you to install the fixed B and W Patriot hitch part # BWRVK3200 in the bed of your 2020 Ram 1500 5.5 foot bed. You'd basically just need the Demco custom fifth wheel rail kit part # DM8552032-71 and you'd be set. The Patriot uses the same high quality jaw system as the Companion hitches but instead fits standard rails and is also compatible with the Turning Point pin box in your trailer as well.

  • Which Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Fits 2019 Dodge Ram 1500 6-1/2 ft Bed Without Air Suspension
    We have custom fit fifth wheel rail kits that fit your 2019 Ram 1500 6-1/2 foot bed without the air suspension like the Demco part # DM8552032-71. The Reese install kit part # RP56018-53 is for models with the air suspension system. With the Demco kit installed you can then use their automatic sliding hitch part # DM8550034 which would give you the needed turning clearance to make tight turns.

  • 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit for 2019 Ram 1500 and PullRite SuperGlide 2700
    If your PullRite SuperGlide #2700 mounts to industry standard rails (ISR) then the rails you'll want to use are the Demco Hijacker Premier Series Above-Bed Base Rails and Custom Installation Kit # DM8552032-71 for your 2019 Ram 1500. The Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16420-104 that you referenced is for older Dodge/Ram pickups and isn't confirmed to fit your newer truck. For a 2019 Ram 1500 Classic you'll need the Demco Rail Kit # DM8552030-71 instead. Please note that...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Weight Compared to Truck Payload Capacity for Safely Towing with 2019 Ram 1500
    The 2018 Forest River Wildcat 28sgx will not be an issue for you to tow. The payload of your truck is slightly different than the hitch weight of your 5th wheel trailer. The reason for the difference is that the payload is based on the bed itself and the strength distributed over the frame whereas the 5th wheel base rails or factory pucks are directly bolted to the frame and have a much higher weight capacity because they aren't simply dispersed over the sheet metal and are directly mounted...

  • Demco 5th Wheel AutoSlide Hitch for 2019 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel with 6-1/2-Foot Bed
    We do offer Demco's automatic-slide 5th wheel hitches for the 2019 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel with 6-1/2-foot bed. Their 18K Hijacker AutoSlide # DM8550034 for instance offers a generous 14-inches of slider travel. Do note that this hitch is NOT compatible with pivoting pin boxes like the Reese Sidewinder or Revolution, or the Lippert Turning Point. You are correct that the two available installation kits, parts # DM8553018-12 and # DM8552032-71, do require drilling into the truck's frame....

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch and Custom Base Rails for 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel
    The only brackets for 5th wheel base plates we have that are a fit for that 2019 Ram 1500 new body style are the Demco Hijacker Premier Series Above-Bed Base Rails and Custom Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Hitches # DM8552032-71. This will give you industry standard base rails compatible with most 5th wheel hitches. My recommendation for that short bed truck is the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider - Single Jaw - Above Bed - 13,000 lbs # DM8550040 which will give...

  • Which Is Better Auto Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch For 2019 Ram 1500: Pullrite or Demco
    I recommend the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # DM8550034 with the custom install bed rails part # DM8552032-71 for the 2019 Ram 1500 over the Pullrite SuperGlide because of the Hijacker's built in capture plate brackets and it's height adjustability. The Pullrite SuperGlide does require a capture plate for your king pin box which is sold separately. The capture plate restricts the king pin from turning in the fifth wheel plate while turning.

  • Comparing Sliding Hitch and Sidewinder for 5th Wheel Towing With a 2020 Ram 1500 5.5 Bed
    The best option I have for a 2020 Ram 1500 with 5-1/2' bed would be to use the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # DM8550040 which would require the Demco Hijacker Premier Series Above-Bed Base Rails and Custom Installation Kit part # DM8552032-71. The reason this is the best option is because it allows you to make full 90 degree turns without having to change out the pin box on the trailer. It is actually the only sliding fifth wheel hitch with enough travel to do this...
