Recommended 5th Wheel Installation Frame Brackets for 2005 GMC Sierra 2500 Short Bed


Hi, Im just needing the part # for fifth wheel frame brackets for my 2005 gmc sierra 2500hd short bed. I have a draw tite hitch and the bed rails. I just need the frame brackets and bolts for install. Thanks

To install your bed rails you'll need the Reese Universal Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches (No Base Rails) - 10 Bolt # RP30439, which are designed to fit on the 2005 GMC Sierra 2500HD short bed and will attach to your bed rails to allow you to install a 5th wheel hitch. These are a universal installation bracket that will be compatible with your existing rails.

If you've got outboard style bed rails then you could use the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Brackets for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56016, but these would not be compatible with a standard length bed rail for a 5th wheel hitch. These are a custom installation kit, so they would install a bit easier and would be the best option if you've got the longer rails like the # RP30153.

Both of these kits would work just fine with your Draw-Tite 5th wheel hitch.
