Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for a 2005 GMC Sierra 2500HD Short Bed


I have a Draw Tite Rail kit part number 4456. What are my options for the plate or hidden hitch that connects to this rail kit. I am putting this on a GMC 2500 HD with 6.5 foot bed. Thanks

The Draw Tite Rail Kit for gooseneck hitches part # 4456 that you referenced is only designed to work on 2011 and newer (2015 currently) GMC trucks. There is no way to use it on a 2005 GMC.

Instead you would need the part number # 9465-34. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

The gooseneck ball hole will be marked and drilled 44-12" up from the rear of the bed and centered between the wheel wells on your 2005 Silverado 2500 Short Bed. I also linked the bracket install manual below that you can look through.
