Thanks much for your response, I gave you some wrong information, the hitch date, 1999,not 2009,I do have the rails that came with the hitch ,I looked for a part # stamped, but didn't find anything, I could use some measurements, so I can get it positioned correctly. I am enclosing some pics, which I should have done to begin with. Thanks for your time and patience.

Thanks for the pictures! That hitch pictured is what the # RP30035 is designed to fit so you'd be set with this kit. The rear edge of the rear rail of this kit will be 30 inches from the rear truck bed edge and then you'll use the hitch to place the front rail once the rear rail is set.
