by:

They fit truck just like they were supposed too. Couple hr install with having to remove spare tire and heat shields to get access to bolt locations. Been supporting fifth wheel through thousands of miles. Thanks for helping me find right product for my truck!




by:

This was an excellent product. I have put one in about 15 years ago that I bought from etrailer. The only difference this time was I had to cut out the heat shield on the passenger side above the exhaust. There was just no other way to do it. There was no way to bend it enough to get a wrench on the nuts. It took about 4.5 hours working by myself.




by:

It worked very well. I used it on a 1990 Chevy K2500, I believe it was for a later application but I drilled holes in the truck frame to match the brackets and it worked great. Thank you, Joe.




by:

Very impressed with the kit!




by:

These brackets fit real nice and easy. Finish seems very durable. Makes the universal brackets seem crude. I did get one square washer that had the hole so far off center that it was hard to get through the large access hole in the frame. I found it much easier to push some mechanics wire through the little hole in the frame to the big hole in the frame, then connect the mechanics wire to the pull wire with the bolt and pull this through the frame. Product arrived fast and I loved all the support documents on your website.


Comments
not a problem. good quality, good fit. even looks good.

Great instructions and easy to do yourself. Great company




by:

This worked as advertised and the apparatus to fish the bolts through the frame was great. I had to get my wife and her small hands under the truck to install the nuts on the vertical bolt over the gas tank because I couldn't get my big hands in there. This was a much better experience than when I built my own adapter!


Comments
It was so easy to install I hardly recall doing it. Perfect.
Tom - 04/13/2019


by:

These rails were a perfect fit and made the installation of my 5th wheel hitch a simple install. The instructions were very clear as well. My only advice is to lay all the parts out and align them up before drilling any holes. These rails will install on both sides of the truck but really are side specific.




by:

These are great brackets, well made, and will fit rails with 10 bolt or 4 bolt installations. I installed Curt rails(exact as Reese) and everything bolted up just as the instructions said. The reason I did not give them an excellent rating is because of the difficulty in the under bed installation. Somewhere I read that it was a 40 minute job for a pro and 80 for a DIY, but 5 hours later, I was done. Again, it is an issue with the new 2011 HD frame, but you must remove your spare so you have room to work, but the biggest pain was the heat deflector shields that GM has put above the exhaust system, right under the bed. There is no room to work, and taking the heat shields out looked to be very time consuming. I finally bent the shield enough to get the washers, locks and nuts on. Also, there is only about 2 inches to work between the top of the frame rail and bottom of the bed. You will need another person and a long screwdriver to be your other hand. The instructions say to torque all 1/2" bolts to 75 psi, but there is no way to get a socket, let alone a torque wrench in there.
Still a great product, just plan for an all day event.




by:

Thank you for the update. I do have a questions though. The hardware kit shown has carriage bolts the get put in from the inside out using the wire. My 2019 GMC 2500 has threaded holes to use. Did I order the correct adapter or do I need to purchase screws on my own for this? If so, what type and size should I get?


Comments
According to Reese, they do not offer a fifth wheel bracket kit at this time that would use the threaded holes you located. Because the # RP50066 is a fit for the 2019 Silverado 2500, Reese hasnt developed anything for those existing threaded attachment points. So, youll just want to continue on following the installation instructions, as there are existing holes that will allow you to install the brackets without drilling.

by:

I agree with the other reviews, allow yourself extra time and patience when installing this kit. It fit perfectly without drilling any holes in my new truck frame. Some of the bolts are near impossible to catch. It took me about 3-4 hours to install. Find someone to help who has skinny arms and long fingers....anyone who has installed this will agree. I am glad I used this instead of the universal "L" brackets, it was well worth the effort.




by:

Thanks to the knowledgeable staff at etrailer I was made aware that there are such things as extended length rails, and they do not fit with frame brackets not designed for them . I chose to stay with my short rails {because they are lower} and purchased a set of frame brackets to fit them , they fit very well, a little challenging to reach the bed rail bolts , but fit great . Thanks !




by:

Well priced. Shipped quickly. Printed instructions, coupled with website video installations, made DIY very easy. Very simple setup, but a couple bolt areas were difficult to reach, and in my case, my wife was able to assist me to reach these areas. Total install took a few hours with minimal tools. Asked one question by e-mail and was answered next day prior to purchase.


Comments
Easy to follow instructions, install involved removing a factory heat shield, which wasnt easy, but was completed. Small hands made a hard to reach area easier to thread a nut onto a bolt, all other locations were easy to complete. No problems a year after install. Etrailer had been prompt, easy to contact by email prior to purchase, to verify product, and prompt shipping. Followed recommendation to additionally purchase all new bolt kit with these brackets.

This product fit great and saved hitch install time by at least one
hour. Would recommend these to anyone installing a 5th wheel
hitch.Made install real easy.




by:

Great company etrailer!! Great frame to bed rail brackets did not have to drill thru frame, holes lined up. Sierra HD 2500




by:

The product is excellent. I feel like my Reese 20k hitch is soild mounted to the frame now. Much better than the universal L brackets. Be patient installing them. It is not easy by any means.

Bryan




by:

They fit perfectly,the only thing I disliked about them was a lot of the paint was off the edges because of the way they box them up to ship,




by:

Received my order quickly and the parts fit just as the technical department said they would. Brackets are of good quality and very please doing business with etrailer.




by:

Been 1 year since parts were installed and everything is still working great, etrailer comes thru as always




by:

It sure saved me a lot of time and drilling from the last time I used universal brackets. If this is your first time to install a hitch I would double the installation time. The bracket works great but reaching some of the bolts can be tough.




by:

Worked great mounting my 5th wheel hitch rails




by:

They are just what I was expecting. After using these custom brackets on my last truck, there was no chance of me going back to using the universal "L" brackets. These are easier to install and provide a stronger set.




by:

Karen was outstanding with customer service. Brackets arrived in 2 days. I haven't had time to open box up yet, but I'm confident Karen advised me on the correct product.
Thanks Karen!!
Joe




by:

Excellent service and quick shipping and correct parts received. Thank you for your service.




by:

Bolted right up to my Chevy 3500. Much easier and stronger than a universal kit.
