  • Demco

Replaces the head and base assembly on your Demco Hijacker Autoslide fifth-wheel trailer hitch. A wraparound jaw provides a smooth ride and a locking bar offers added security. 18,000-lb Gross towing weight.

    • Fits DM8550022, DM8550024, and DM8550034 5th-wheel hitches
  • Rotating hitch head turns up to 90 degrees with your trailer

    • Less rattle and more security than slide-bar jaws
  • 3/4" Thick, solid steel locking bar reinforces the connection of your coupled trailer
    • Automatically locks into place when the jaw closes
  • Double-pivot design eases hookup and helps to limit chucking
    • Pivots front to back and side to side
  • Spring-loaded handle with comfort grip allows for simple coupling

    • Locking plates (sold separately) are required for use with Glide Ride, Mor Ryde, Trailair Tri Glide, and 5th Airborne pin boxes

This is a wonderful auto slide hitch. I love the fact that when the bar closes and you drop the safety pin into the latch handle, there is NO earthly way my 5th wheel can come disconnected from my hitch. I have several friend who thought their 5th wheels were safely hitched only to pull away and have the kingpin crash into the truck bed and tailgate causing severe damage. I love the locking bar and pin.



by:

Excellent hitch! Shipper lost the first shipment, I contacted etrailer and they shipped another immediately. Outstanding service and great people to work with. Just got hitch today, will be installing in a few days. Will update if there is any problem with the hitch once installed. Know if there is, etrailer will stand on their reputation.



by:

The product is exactly as described and worked very well. I love a company that does what they say that they are going to do - then does it! The Demco products have performed perfectly, but the assistance that I received from my service representative was OUTSTANDING. Her willingness to research my questions and then deliver her responses in a professional, personal and high quality manner was amazing. What a pleasure to deal with. JG

    It sounds to me like the gears of the slider inside of your Replacement Head and Base Assembly for Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # DM6077 may either have debris blocking them, the teeth may be chewed up and need to be replaced, or may just need to be greased. I've attached the instruction manual below, which goes over how to remove the head to gain access to the gear assembly. I recommend checking the teeth of the gears for any wear and applying some grease at the...

  • Will 18k Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch Fit Demco Rail Adapter on 2018 Ram 3500
    The Hijacker 5th hitch will work, though the Replacement Head and Base Assembly # DM6077 isn't the complete 18k hitch (it doesn't have side plates) so it won't fit the Demco adapter for your 2018 Ram 3500. So you'll need the entire hitch assembly, and for the adapter and 18k Autoslide on your 2018 Ram 3500 with the factory puck system, you'll need the following parts: - Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider - 18,000 lbs # DM8550034 - Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter...

  • How To Upgrade Weight Capacity of Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch
    The Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitches are composed of three main components; the head, base, and side plates. The base is what determines the weight capacity so you would need a new base to upgrade the weight capacity of the fifth wheel hitch. However, the base is not available separately from the head. It would be difficult to sell the old base without the head as well so most customers just sell the old hitch and get the one they want. If you want to save some cash, you can re-use...

  • Does Demco Hijacker Autoslide from 2013 Ford F-350 Fit into Puck System of 2020 Ford F-350
    The # DM6077 that you looked at is actually just the replacement head and base assembly for the 18 Demco Hijacker Autoslide hitches. That's only part of the hitch you have in your 2013 Ford F-350. The complete hitch is part # DM8550024. The good news it that # DM8550024 fits your 2020 F-350 as well because the puck systems are the same for both model years. The new truck likely has wiring in the bed already but if not I recommend part # 50-97-410-010. The hardware is aluminum so it's...

  • Using a Demco Hijacker in a 2021 Ram 2500
    The Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # DM8550022 that you purchased is designed to work with Demco UMS custom underbed mounting kits which are custom fit for specific vehicles. The Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # DM6099 you mentioned drops into the Ram prep package puck system and then provides you with industry standard mounting points, which the # DM8550022 does not use. So no, you would not be able to use the # DM8550022 in the # DM6099. If the puck system you...
