5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Underbed Mount Kit for a 2015 Ram 3500


I have a husky 16k model 70490 slider with ubs. Can I mount this in a 2015 dodge 3500? Is there a install kit for it. Thanks

The Husky of the Husky hitch you have is not the same as the current Husky who also makes 5th wheel hitches. the UBS system is a Valley product but Valley has gone out of business so the underbed kits are no longer available. You will not be able to install the old Husky hitch in your new 2015 Ram 3500.

There are some below the bed options for a 2015 Ram 3500. For a short bed you can use B&W system # BWGNRK1314-5W and then you would need Companion hitch # BWRVK3500-5W. Another option is the Demco underbed system, # DM8551006, and the HiJacker automatic slider hitch # DM8550022 rated for 18,000 pounds or # DM8550037 for a 21,000 pound capacity.

If you have a long bed truck you can still use installation kit # BWGNRK1314-5W and B&W hitch # BWRVK3500-5W. And for Demco you can still use installation kit # DM8551006. But for the Demco kit and a long bed truck you would use the fixed hitch # DM8550032.
