Which 5th Wheel Base Rails Fit on a 2002 Ford F-150


It looks like the cutoff year for this is 2004. I need help finding the same install bracket and bolt set for my 2002 f-150 Can you help me find what I need? Please advise.

I recommend using the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50042-58, which will give you industry standard base rails to install a 5th wheel hitch in your 2002 Ford F-150. These are a custom fit bracket kit that will reduce the installation time and required drilling. If you just need the frame brackets then you could use the # RP50042.

If you don't already have a 7 way installed or would like to put one in the truck bed for easier access when towing a 5th wheel trailer I recommend using the Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Wiring Connector, 7-Way - Ford LD # 20030.

I've linked a review and installation video of this base rail kit on a similar Ford F-150 that you can use as a guide during installation.
