5th Wheel Bed Rail Kit for 2006 GMC 2500 Short Bed Compatibility with Holes from Previous Kit


2006 gmc 2500 short bed My truck had 5th wheel rails in it when I bought it. I removed them, now I am getting a 5th wheel. Since I have no idea what brand hitch was in my truck , what are the chances the angle brackest and the holes will be in the right location for my new hitch?


Expert Reply:

There is a really good chance that the rails will reinstall in the exact same location. If you removed a universal rail kit like # RP30035 then you would have removed 4 L-brackets and they will simply install in the same location. If you removed custom brackets, then I recommend using the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50064-58 which will use factory holes in your frame for a no drill bracket installation.

I wish I could tell you with 100 percent clarity that they will line up exactly with your old holes, but I can't confirm that without knowing what kit you had previously installed.
