Is Drilling into Frame Required To Install Reese 30035 5th Wheel Bracket Kit in 2016 Silverado


Will i need to drill any holes in my frame on my 2016 Chevy 2500hd to install the bracket to the frame.


Expert Reply:

The Reese Universal 5th wheel install bracket/rail kit, part # RP30035 will indeed require drilling into the frame of your 2016 Silverado 2500.

For a no drill application, check out the Reese Custom Bracket Kit, part # # RP50066-58. According to Reese, the universal kit takes around 6 hours to install, while the custom kit will only take about 4 hours.

If you're interested in installing a trailer connector in the bed of your truck, you can easily do so using # 50-97-410.

I've linked to the parts mentioned above, as well as to some installation videos and installation instruction files that you might find helpful.
