Comparing Universal vs Custom 5th Wheel Install Kits for 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty


is this kit hard to install? are there other kits that are easier? I don't mind spending more on one that will take less time to install.


Expert Reply:

The easiest 5th wheel rail installation comes with a custom-fit kit that is made for your specific vehicle. These cost more and take less time to install because they are vehicle-specific and use existing holes in the truck's frame. Less drilling is required and this is where the time savings comes from.

For your 2017 F-250 long bed without the factory rail kit you can use Quick-Install Custom Base Rail kit # RP50074-58. For a 7-way wiring harness for the truck bed use # 50-97-410-010.
