Can a Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit for a 2012 Ram 1500 be Used in a 2012 Ram 2500


Hi I have your Pro series 16K slider 5th wheel hitch from my 2012 Ram 1500. I would like to install it in my 2012 Ram 2500. What will I need? I have all the brackets and the rails from my 1500. Thank you in advance

Expert Reply:

The 2012 Ram 2500 will take installation kit # RP30035-186 but the 1500 and earlier models do not take this same kit. They used similar kit # RP30035-386. So you will not be able to use all of the same brackets. You can reuse the rails and the L-brackets but you will need new hardware and new semi-custom brackets, # RP58186.

For the hardware you will need # 58164.
