Fifth wheel brackets # RP56016 are specifically for the longer Reese rails, # RP30153, which are 48 inches long. If your rails are Reese and 48 inches long by 7-1/2 inches wide by 1-7/8 inches tall then # RP56016 is the correct bracket kit. If your rails are shorter than 48 inches then you will need bracket kit # RP50026 instead.

Bracket kit # RP56016 comes with hardware to mount to the truck frame but not the hardware to attach the rails to the brackets. For that hardware you will need # RP58504.

Likewise, bracket kit # RP50026 includes the hardware to mount to the truck frame but you will also need to add # RP58504.

The difference between the 2 hardware kits is that # RP58504 has Grade 8 bolts and # RP58430 has grade 5. Install instructions are linked as well as videos showing example installs of both kits.
