Since your truck has a short bed you have to go with a slider hitch to give you the needed clearance to make tight turns. Otherwise the corners of the front of the trailer will hit the cab of your truck around tight turns.

Because using a slider hitch can be a bit of a hassle I really like the Demco Hijacker part # DM8550034 which automatically slides back as you make tight turns so you never have to worry about it.

Then for a custom rail kit designed to minimize drilling and install time on your 2008 Chevy Silverado 2500 we have the Demco rail kit part # DM8552012-71 that would work great.

For a 7-way to install in the bed of your truck to make connecting your trailer lights easier you would want the part # 41157. Most 7-ways will be at the rear of the truck near the bumper which doesn't work will with fifth wheel hitches. This kit installs in line with the 7-way at the rear of your truck and gives you a second one to install in the bed.
