Speaker 1: Today, we're gonna take a look at the Reese Custom Base Rail and Installation Kit for fifth wheel trailer hitches on the Dodge Ram and Ram trucks.This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2002 to 2012 Dodge Ram and Dodge 1500, 2500, 3500 trucks without over lift springs. And on a custom fit part, I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle. And it'll show you if this part will work for your application.Now, these 10 bolt base rails, these are what'll sit in your truck bed and provide the necessary attachment points for your fifth wheel trailer hitch. The universal brackets and the semi-custom bracket will mount beneath your truck bed to provide attachment points for your fifth wheel rails. The semi-custom bracket will basically install on the passenger side on the rail nearest the bumper that basically replaces one of the universal brackets.Now, these rails are compatible with hitches by Curt, Drawtight, Kid and Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley, and most standard fifth wheel hitches.

They will not fit the Reese Elite series or the Valley UBS hitches.These parts are all a sturdy steel construction with a nice black powder coat finish that helps resist corrosion. This kit will include everything shown on the table. The two base rails, the universal brackets, the semi-custom bracket, all the hardware you need to install it, and even a nice set of detailed instructions on how to install everything.But should do it on the review of the Reese Semi-Custom Base Rail and Installation Kit for fifth wheel trailer hitches on the Dodge Ram and Ram trucks.

Works great no issues. I use it for my back drag plow 16 feet. Very satisfied highly recommend



by:

Purchased a reese 16,000 lbs. fifth wheel to tow a 10,000 lbs. trailer. The product is duel jaw, and works great after a year of towing. I may recommend purchasing the movable mount if installing it in a 6.5' bed. Modifying the installment, I moved my 5th wheel rearward approximately 10" so as I met the cab clearance. Works perfectly.



by:
2012 Dodge Ram Pickup

Great product and easy to follow direction. The only issue I ran into was getting the bolts through the frame on my 2012 Ram 2500. The provided wires to pull the bolts through were not long enough to reach the access hole in the frame. I had to tape the wire to an extension. Other than that, directions were spot on.

  • Does Reese Mounting Bracket for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP58023 Fit a 2012 Ram 3500
    Bracket # RP58023 does fit the 2012 Ram 3500. It comes with installation kit # RP30035-023. You mentioned that your truck has the Ram Box feature. There are specific parts needed to be able to tow a 5th wheel trailer on Rams that have the Ram Boxes. Basically, because the bed on Ram Box models is narrower than on the standard beds, what will happen is during a turn the pin box will hit the bed sides. To prevent damage to the truck and trailer the fix for this is to use a stationary 5th...

  • Installation Instructions for Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Install Kit for 2004 Dodge Ram 2500
    It depends on which installation kit you have. The 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 short bed could use # RP30035-023 (but will not work on trucks with overload springs), kit # RP50140-58, kit # RP30035-186, or kit # RP56011-53. I have included links to the installation instructions for all of these kits for you. The mounting hardware is not meant to be reused. After torqueing down the hardware it will stretch and so it cannot be re-used. For replacement hardware I would need to know which kit you...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit for a 2012 Ram 2500 SLT Diesel Mega Cab
    The Reese semi-custom installation kit # RP30035-023 will fit your 2012 Ram 2500 Mega Cab if it does NOT have overload springs.

Another option is to use a custom installation kit such as # C16420-204. I have linked a video showing how it installs.

    The RBW Lil Rocker should fit the industry standard rails. To be sure I have included a picture that shows the rails dimensions where the hitches mount.

The exact kit needed will depend on whether your Ram Big Horn 1500 is a Mega Cab model or not, as well as whether you want a semi-custom install kit that doesn't require...
