If the Reese fifth wheel hitch you have is designed to be used with industry-standard rails I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit, part # RP50040-58. This custom kit cuts the installation time in half versus the universal bracket system. I have attached a link to an installation video for this kit on a 2005 Dodge Ram truck you can check out.

The semi-custom installation kit we offer is part # RP30035-023. The kit includes the base rails, universal brackets, and the hardware needed. The difference between the two kits is the custom brackets with the RP50040-58 and the universal brackets that require more drilling when installing RP30035-023.

To make it easier to connect your fifth wheel harness I recommend part # HM42137. I have attached a link to an installation video for this harness.
