Base Rail Kit to Use RBW Lil' Rocker 5th Wheel Hitch with 2010 Dodge Ram 2500


I just got a lil rocker hitch. Im wondering about getting bed rails that are compatible with that hitch and my pickup bed. Its a 2010 ram 2500 mega cab. Could you help me out?

As long as your RBW Lil' Rocker 5th wheel hitch mounts to industry standard base rails then you can use the Semi-Custom # RP30035-023 or Custom # RP50140-58 base rail kit on your 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 and these will be compatible. The difference between the 2 kits mentioned is that one will require some drilling while the other one installs using existing holes in the frame of your pickup.

I am attaching a photo showing the measurements of the mounting places once these base rails are installed. Some of the Lil' Rocker hitches did have a unique base rail system that they only fit in and if that's what you happened to get then you're going to have to get a different 5th wheel hitch as those base rails aren't available anywhere anymore.

If this is the case then I recommend using the Reese 16K # RP30051 which is a cost-effective slider hitch that will fit the base rails mentioned above and it uses a dual jaw system which is provides a more comfortable ride than the entry-level slide-bar style jaw.
