  • Ram Truck Factory Puck System for 5th Wheel Hitches
  • The Ram OEM 5th wheel puck system, shown in the linked photo and article, was launched in 2013 so what you have in your truck is likely to be an aftermarket installation of some kind. These newer Ram trucks with the factory prep can directly accept a specialized 5th wheel hitch such as the B&W # BWRVK3600 or the Curt # C16545-16021. Such hitches drop right into those factory pucks, allowing you to completely remove the hitch for a clear bed when necessary for cargo. Without seeing the...

  • The B&W Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 Bolt # BWRVR3200 will fit your 2018 Ford F-250 with aluminum bed but B&W doesn't recommend it. You will want to use some sort of spacers/isolators that help prevent galvanic corrosion due to the dissimilar metals.

  • Reese Rail Kit Recommendation thats Same As Ford Factory Rail Kit in 2019 Ford F-250
  • So Reese is who makes the factory Ford fifth wheel rail kits so that means that the Ford Elite Underbed rail kit part # RP30886 would be what you'd want. This will give you the same exact hitch as what the Ford rail kit offers at a better price. To add the gooseneck hitch you'd then want the part # RP30845. This rail kit will fit any of the fifth wheel hitches designed to fit the Ford factory rail kit but the one we recommend the highest is the B and W Companion Hitch for Ford Rail...

  • Rubber Plugs to Cover Factory Puck System on 2017 Ram Truck
  • For your 2017 Ram with the factory puck system, you will just need the Reese Rubber Hole Cover # RP30136 for the center gooseneck hitch ball location and the Draw-Tite Puck Plug # 58199 for the 5th wheel or safety chain locations. The Draw-Tite Puck Plugs include 2 covers, so you will want to order 2 to cover all 4 of the puck openings.

  • Differences Between Custom Install 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Bracket Kits for 2015 to 2018 Ford F-150
  • Essentially they do the same thing and they fit the same trucks. They're both custom install bracket kits, including the base rails, for a fifth wheel trailer hitch and they fit all bed sizes of the Ford F-150 from 2015 to 2018. However, there are a few differences. Part # RP50087-58 has base rails that are 43 inches long and the brackets install on the inside of the truck frame. Part # RP56034-53 is an outboard installation. Which means it installs on the outside of the truck's...

  • Curt Base Rail Kit for 2018 Ram 2500 for Superglide 2700 5th Wheel Hitch
  • Above-bed 5th wheel base rails are all standardized so you can use any brand of base rail with your Pull-Rite SuperGlide 2700 hitch. ISRs, or industry standard rails, have common dimensions and work with all brands of hitch. I suggest the Curt kit # C16427-204 for your Ram 2500 with 6-1/2-foot bed. This is a custom kit that includes brackets that do not require drilling into your Ram's frame; it uses pre-existing holes for installation which saves a lot of time. Please refer to the linked...

  • Best Base Rail Kit and 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2017 Ram 2500 with the RamBox

This will keep the pin box stationary and allow the trailer to turn via the rotating pin box. A standard pin box will not be able to turn with the limited inside your truck bed because of the RamBox. We do have 5th wheel base rail kits that are compatible with your Ram. The standard kit is part # RP50054-58, while...

  • Demco Hijacker Fifth Wheel Hitch or Pullrite SuperGlide for 2019 Ram 2500
  • When comparing the Demco Hijacker and Pullrite SuperGlide for your 2019 Ram 2500, I highly recommend going with the Demco Hijacker for a number of reasons The first reason is the superior jaw system of the Hijacker. As you can see by the accompanying photo, this hitch has a single-piece jaw that wraps completely around the king pin, and has an enhanced connection via a 3/4" solid steel bar that locks into place once the jaw is closed. This reinforced jaw system is what will give you...

  • How to Determine Height Setting of Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch on 2019 Ram 2500

You'll want to measure from the ground to the top of the bed rails on your 2019 Ram 2500 and then from the ground to the bottom of your trailer loft and the difference will be your clearance. Your Demco Hijacker 5th Wheel Hitch # DM8550034 (18,000 lbs) or # DM8550035 (21,000 lbs) have height settings of 15-1/4 inches, 16-1/2...

  • Comparison of Curt and Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Install Bracket Kits for a 2017 Ford F-350

And when you compare the Reese # RP50074-58 and the Curt # C16428-204 they even install in the same location. They're custom kits so they use existing holes in your truck's frame. So you don't have to drill into the frame. With that being said, there is a second Reese kit, part # RP56017-53. This kit is an outboard install which means the brackets install on the outside of the frame rails....

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-350 for Reese Hitch
  • You'd want to go with a set of custom install Reese fifth wheel rails/brackets for your 2017 Ford F-350 without the factory rail kit. The part # RP56017-53 is an outboard kit which means it the brackets mount to the outside of the frame rails making it a bit easier. Downside is a slightly bigger rail and higher price. The inboard kit part # RP50074-58 is your other option. You'd get a lower price and smaller rails but a more involved install. Since you have tapered nose trailer...

  • Difference Between B and W Turnoverball Part Numbers # BWGNRK1108 and BWGNRK1108-5W
  • The two part numbers are actually the same rail kit/gooseneck hitch. Since they appear in the fitguide for both the gooseneck and fifth wheel hitches though we gave them slightly different part numbers to make it easier for us to organize. For your 2004 Ford F-350 Super Duty the Turnoverball rail kit part # BWGNRK1108 or # BWGNRK1108-5W is the correct kit and would work well for you.

  • Difference Between Above Bed and Under Bed Base Rail Kits for 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty
  • Congrats on the new 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty purchase! I'd be more than happy to help you figure out which base rail kit option is best for your lifestyle. The first difference between above bed and under bed kits lies in the name. Above bed kits, like the Curt # C16428-204, have rails that sit inside your bed while below bed kits are more hidden with the rails sitting below your bed. The advantage of above bed kits is solely with the cost. These are more traditional and basic so they...
