Under-Bed 5th Wheel Kit for a 2013 Ford Super Duty


Do I need the under bed rail kit? Or does it exist in the pictures?

Thank you for sending the pictures. Your truck does not have the under-bed rail kit for the fifth wheel prep package. If you would like to add an under-bed fifth wheel kit to your 2013 Ford Super Duty, you can install the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Rail Kit, # RP30126. This will provide the 4 pucks in the bed just like the fifth wheel prep package that is offered by Ford. I have attached an installation video for you to check out.

For a fifth wheel hitch, you can use the Reese Elite Series 18K Fifth Wheel Hitch, # RP30142, if you have a long bed, or the sliding hitch, part # RP30144, if you have a short bed. I also recommend using the Lube Plate, # RP83001, for the Elite Series hitches to avoid messy grease.

If you would also like to add a gooseneck hitch, you can do so with part # RP30138.

Finally, if you already have a fifth wheel hitch that uses the standard above-bed base rails, then you can use the Reese Rail Adapter, # RP30156. This adapter will fit into the pucks in the bed and provides mounting points for standard fifth wheel hitches rated up to 20,000lbs. I have attached a review video of this adapter for you also.

We also offer above-bed fifth wheel base rail kits for your truck. If you are interested in this option, check out the link I attached
