  • Semi-Custom Base Rail and Installation Kit for a 2003 Ram 2500 and a Husky Slider 5th Wheel Hitch
    We do have a semi-custom base rail installation kit for your 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 long bed, however, the Reese Semi-Custom Base Rail and Install Kit, # RP30035-023, that you referenced will not fit in your truck. This kit was designed for newer model Ram 1500 trucks. Instead, you will want to install the Reese Semi-Custom Base Rail and Install Kit, # RP30035-023, if your truck has overload springs, or # RP30035-186 if your truck does not have the overload springs. The base rails that are...

  • Can Universal 5th Wheel Rails and Brackets Be Used On a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500
    The Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit part # RP30035 is not a good option for a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 because of the frame design and leaf spring setup but I do have options for you that are, the Reese Semi-Custom Base Rail and Installation Kit part # RP30035-023 if you don't have overload springs or part # RP30035-186 if you do have overload springs and the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit part # RP50140-58.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch and Installation Kit for a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500
    The installation kit I would recommend for your 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 would be the Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit, # RP50140-58. This kit will require less drilling and make the installation go much easier. Of course the install kit you mentioned, # RP30035-186, is a semi-custom kit and will work also, just a bit more drilling and measuring. The slider hitch you purchase would be determined by the installation kit you select and the width of your 5th wheel trailer,...

  • Can a Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit for a 2012 Ram 1500 be Used in a 2012 Ram 2500
    The 2012 Ram 2500 will take installation kit # RP30035-186 but the 1500 and earlier models do not take this same kit. They used similar kit # RP30035-386. So you will not be able to use all of the same brackets. You can reuse the rails and the L-brackets but you will need new hardware and new semi-custom brackets, # RP58186. For the hardware you will need # 58164.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch for a 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 Dually Towing a 39 Foot Trailer
    The hitch you need will depend on the weight of your trailer, and the features you desire. We offer Reese Fifth Wheel Hitches in 15, 16, 18, 20, and 22 K capacities. The Signature Series is offered in 18 and 24 K capacities. The great feature that the Signature Series offers is the mounting system. The mounting rails are located under the bed. Once the hitch is removed, you will have full use of the bed, with no rails to get in the way. I would recommend using a standard (no slider) hitch...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit for a 2008 Dodge Ram 3500
    There are several different kits for a 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 but I recommend going with the semi-custom kit # RP30035-186. It will fit long and short beds and trucks with overload springs. It has an estimated 4 hour install time and requires less drilling than a universal kit. I have included a link to the installation instructions

  • Center Bolt Attachment for the Reese Universal 5th Wheel Install Kit on a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500
    The center bolts for the rails in the Reese Universal 5th Wheel Installation Kit, # RP30035, do go through the sheet metal of the bed but on the other side, beneath the truck, it will also pass through a spacer block that is included with the kit, a washer, lock washer, and finally the nut. Make sure there is nothing below the bed in the location of the center bolts before drilling. I have included a link the installation instructions for you.

  • Which Fifth Wheel Hitch for a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel Pickup with a Short Bed
    The custom install kit for the 1500 and 2500 model is actually the same. The 16K Fifth Wheel with Slider, part # RP30051 would work great. If your Ram is NOT equipped with the overload springs, use install kit # RP50140-58. If your truck does have the overload springs, use install kit # RP30035-186. As far as a brake controller goes, you cannot go wrong with the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885. Not only is the Prodigy our best selling brake controller, it is also very easy to use and...

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with a 2006 Dodge Ram 3500
    First, the warranty will not be an issue if the trailer frame is made by Lippert and you use the Goose Box because it is endorsed by Lippert Components Inc. and will not affect the warranty on their trailer frames. You would have to contact the manufacturer of the trailer frame if it is not a Lippert. The Goose Boxes are sweet items. Not only can you tow your 5th wheel trailer with a gooseneck hitch but you also get an air cushioned ride. Goose Box # RP85FR will work with Lippert 0719,...

  • Does Reese 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit for 2011 Dodge Ram 3500 Have a Weight Capacity
    Base rail kits for 5th wheel trailers, including the Reese Semi-Custom Base Rail and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - Dodge Ram # RP30035-186 that fits your 2011 Ram 3500, are not rated for any specific weight capacity.
