  • Puck System Availability for a 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty with a 6-3/4 Bed
  • Although there are no 5 puck mounting systems available as of May 2018, we do have some underbed systems for your 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty with a 6-3/4' bed. If the option to tow a gooseneck or 5th wheel trailer with a single underbed system is what you are looking for then a B&W Gooseneck Hitch is what you are wanting. For a 2WD use part # BWGNRK1116-5W and for a 4WD use part # BWGNRK1117-5W. This system gives you a gooseneck hitch and hitch ball that is compatible with the B&W Companion...

  • Base Rail Kit for 5th Wheel Hitch on 2018 Ford F-250 with Aluminum Bed
  • 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. My recommendation is to use the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Installation Kit for Ford # C16428-204 which will give you brackets that require no drilling into your frame and also comes with the...

  • 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...

  • Best Base Rail Kit and 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2017 Ram 2500 with the RamBox
  • Since your 2017 Ram 2500 has the RamBox you will be limited to using a trailer that is equipped with a Sidewinder or a Revolution (the OEM name for the Sidewinder) pin box. 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...

  • Does Reese Underbed Rail Adapter Work With 2017 Ford F-350 That Does Not Have Prep Package?
  • There are underbed fifth wheel rails that are going to work with your 2017 Ford F-350, though the Reese system # RP30126 is unfortunately not one of them. There is good news, however, because the Custom Underbed Installation Kit # BWGNRK1117-5W works on both the 6-3/4' and 8' four-wheel drive versions of the 2017 F-350; I've added a link to a video showing you these rails being installed in a '17 F-350.

  • 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...

  • 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...

However, this option will require drilling into the frame and by the time you purchase both pieces, you will be right around the price of a custom kit that does not require drilling into the frame, the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Dodge Ram part # C16420-204 which is what I recommend...

If you wanted this style of rail in a 2019 Ford F-250 without the factory rail kit you'd have to get the rail kit from a Ford dealer and have them install it.

  • You can install an industry-standard 5th wheel hitch in any brand of above-bed base rails. All such industry standard rails (ISRs) will work with any hitch that is designed for such above-the-bed installation. Such an install kit from Curt is part # C16411-204. Now, in a truck like your 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 with the 5th wheel prep package you will instead use an adapter # C16023. This adapter drops into the factory installed pucks in the bed and provides the equivalent of standard base...

  • Difference Between Reese Fifth Wheel Rail Kits for 2017 Ford F-250 Long Bed
  • Both the Reese fifth wheel rail install kits are a fit for your 2017 Ford F-250 long bed without the factory rail kit. The difference is that the part # RP56017-53 costs a little more, installs much easier since the frame brackets mount to the outside of the frame, but also gives you a larger rail in the bed of your truck. The part # RP50074-58 on the other hand costs less, gives you a smaller rail in the bed of your truck, but will be a bit harder to install since the brackets mount...

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • Distance of Fifth Wheel Install Location on a 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The Reese Quick Install Bracket, part # RP56017-53 installs its rear bar at 29-1/8 inches away from the rear of the bed, compared to the rear bar being installed at 29-1/2 inches for part # RP50074-58. You likely won't have much difference in the hitch position between these two kits. Keep in mind that this distance is measured from the rear of the truck bed. I've included and labeled images from their instruction manuals so you can get an idea of how the rest of the system installs.

  • Can Grade 8 Hex Head Bolts Be Used Instead of the Carriage Bolts on the B&W Custom Base Rails
  • The B&W Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # BWRVK2502 uses 8 carriage bolts to secure the base rails to the frame brackets. The base rails have 2 square cutouts on each end to accommodate a carriage bolt. The square cutouts minimize movement and allows for you to tighten one side without holding the other. Unfortunately, as the manufacturer recommends using the carriage bolts included in the kit I cannot recommend you substitute them for grade 8 hex...

  • Reese offers two fifth wheel rail kits for your 2016 Ford F-250 short bed. They are different styles that have trade offs, but both of them are going to be much easier to install than a universal install kit. The part # RP56016-53 is an outboard rail kit. This means that the brackets for the rails mount on the outside of the truck frame. The benefit to this is that they are much easier to install. The drawbacks are that they cost more and the rails are dimensionally larger all around. The...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rails and Hitch for 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 5.5 Bed for Reese Revolution Pin Box
  • A Reese Revolution is the equivalent of the Reese Sidewinder. The Revolution is the factory installed option and the Sidewinder is the very similar aftermarket option. For a 5-1/2 foot bed, a sliding hitch will not work, so the Revolution or Sidewinder route is the only option to provide you with turning clearance. The really good news is that is by far the ideal option even if you had a longer bed truck. For your 2018 GMC Sierra 1500, I recommend you start with the Reese Quick-Install...
