Needing a Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for RAM 2500 4 X 4 Short Bed


Are the 2017 Pre-Mounted 5th Wheel Holes from factory the same as a 2016 and would the Demco work on the 2017 Ram or can I use a BandW Trailer Hitch with slider.


Expert Reply:

Both the Demco Hijacker Hitch, # DM8550035 hitch and # DM6099 installation rails, and the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Slider Hitch, # BWRVK3670, fit both 2016 and 2017 Ram 2500 with the 6 foot bed and factory prep package.

Both hitches are rated at or over 20K and both hitches will allow you to make your tight turns using a slider device.

Of the two, I recommend the Demco hitch, because this hitch has an Autoslide feature that is far superior than the manual option on the B&W hitch. You will never have to exit the cab of the truck when using the Demco Hijacker hitch. This hitch will automatically engage as you make your turns and will move back to normal operation setting after the turn has been completed.
