5th Wheel Base Rail and Installation Kit for 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500 With 8 Foot Bed


What kit would I need for a 2004 Chevy 2500 HD 8 ft bed. With this hitch?


Expert Reply:

The installation kit I strongly recommend for your 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500 with an 8 foot bed is the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails # RP50064-58 because it does not require any drilling into your frame rails to install. This is not only great for your truck but also means the installation is going to be simpler and take much less time than a universal kit. Using this kit will benefit you whether you are doing the install yourself (saving hours) or having a professional do it (less install time equals less expensive labor costs).

The Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit # RP30035 will also work on your truck and is the less expensive kit, though it does require drilling and will take quite a bit longer to install.

Both of these kits will allow you to mount the Reese Select Plus 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30081 in your '04 Silverado so you can hit the road with your 5th wheel trailer.
