Great product, and excellent support; very happy. It took me a little over 4 hours to install, but if you have a good helper and a lift it could be done in half that time.
The instructions weren’t great, but the YouTube video was extremely helpful, be sure and watch it first.
An impact is highly recommended and some extensions were necessary to reach the driver side front brackets.



by:
Ram 2500

Super HD rails brackets, the brackets bolt directly to the frame with existing factory nuts.
No cutting or grinding, just some holes to drill. I did all the work on the my Cummins
Dodge 2500 4x4 on the ground with no lift. If you have the right tools and mechanical
Ability, Takes about 5 hours to install. Great fit and extremely strong. Would highly re-
Commend this product.

Everything is still solid , I pull a 16,500 5th wheel trailer and everything still working great. No rust on painted surfaces , thank for building good stuff.

Driver side front mount has to be altered. Wiring harness pass through the are and will not have clearance for the mount. Had to grind it down about 1/4” to have clearance. Will finish installing today. Hopefully no other issues appear

Great product, need to do a video on 2019 and up rams. Appreciated the video on the 2018 ram but my instructions were a little different. Hardest part was working between gas tank and frame. Not a lot of room.

Shipping was as expected, product arrived in good condition. Directions were clear and easy to follow. The installation video on etrailer.com was of great help and it was nice tool to have.

I was on the fence on which tow system to buy. Hands down the BWRVK2602, was no competition We will be setting it up on our 2018 2500 Ram. The package arrived and upon opening saw the fit and finish on all the pieces. A huge help is the video available to show exact steps to get all this mounted. I will be back to get all my brake controller parts. Thanks so much Nick C. for all the help.

Rails and support brackets fit perfectly on my 2018 RAM 2500. Video was spot-on in every detail of what to expect, thus I had no surprises awaiting me during my install. I had it all done in less than 3 hours. Thanx for the great installation video and product.

Great job and very professional staff.

2018 Ram 2500

I’ve been fighting with getting a decent deal on a fifth wheel hitch and install kit and was hesitant to order online because I needed it fast. I was so surprised to see that 30 min after I ordered it they had already packaged and shipped the kit! I got it on time and with no issues at all. I couldn’t be more happy!



by:

Install was harder than expected because rear bracket passenger sided ended up with the nut against the brace for the track bar had to find a thin open end and attempt install that way.



by:
Honda Pilot

Easy install was the main thing about this kit and it proved to be very easy to install. Make sure you use a small bit for pilot holes as I had to move the rails about a 1/2 inch forward of the first pilot holes after loosely installing the brackets on the frame to ensure everything lined up. Would recommend this kit over any other, I've installed the Universal Style before and would never do it again. Spend the extra money and buy this set over the Universal and don't waste money on the overpriced ones.

Dodge Ram Pickup

Well engineered kit that fit my Ram per fectly.



by:

Everything arrived at a timely manner.. the video instructions were very helpful took me about 4 hours to install .. works great for my fiftwheel camper . I would recommend this product to anybody



by:

This is a very well made product. Thick steel with a very good finish on it. All of the brackets are thick heavy steel. I didn't have any issues with the pieces matching up with the corresponding vehicle manufacturer locations.

One thing I will point out, this is a significant undertaking. Plan on taking most of a day to complete this instillation including the assembly of a hitch if that's what you ordered.

I Highly recommend this product!

These rails for my 5th wheel hitch fit perfectly. I can put the B&W patriot in and take it out quickly

This mounting kit fit great and the manufacturer did an excellent job working around a very difficult rear suspension design. The installation instructions were good and the hardware was quality.

  • Compatibility of the RBW Little Rocker 5th Wheel Hitch with B&W Custom Base Rails for 2017 Ram 2500
    The RBW Little Rocker 5th wheel hitch is designed to mount to industry standard rails. The B&W Custom Base Rails, # BWRVK2602, are above the bed 5th wheel industry standard rails. The RBW hitch will work well with these base rails on your 2017 Ram 2500 truck.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Base Rails for a 2018 Dodge 2500
    You can use a sliding 5th hitch in your long bed truck, however you'll need to add a base rail kit for your vehicle. One of the great things about 5th wheel hitches is that they use an industry standard rail and are mostly compatible across brands, so you're likely to have a fit. I recommend using the B&W Custom Install Kit, part # BWRVK2602 as it is compatible with all major 5th wheel hitch brands. This kit uses the existing holes in your frame to install the base rails, and avoids known...

  • Front Most Mounting Location For The B&W Custom Installation Kit For A 2022 Ram 2500 Regular Bed
    The front most rail on the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2602 for your 2022 Ram 2500 with the 6'4" bed, should be placed 48-5/16" from the end of the truck bed. Once you've placed the front most rail at the intended location, you're going to need to center the rail in the bed, from left to right. The mounting location shown in the instructions for a 6'6" bed will be the same as your 6'4" bed.

  • Curt or B&W Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Ram 2500
    I would highly recommend the B and W Patriot Hitch part # BWRVK3270 that you referenced with the rail kit part # BWRVK2602 that you also referenced over the Curt. There's nothing really wrong with the Curt but the B and W hitch heads are among the nicest hitches around and I know you will be very happy with it.

  • Is Hitch Height of B and W Patriot Slider Hitch a Major Concern When Towing
    Normally a great deal of height adjustment is not needed with fifth wheel hitches. There are some really well known hitches that don't offer any adjustment at all. The height range of the B and W Patriot part # BWRVK3270 is 17-19 inches which typically is all that's needed. Also you can adjust the height of the pin box on the trailer for further adjustment so additional height adjustment is available. Since you don't have a trailer yet and the fact that height range is pretty rarely an...

  • Slider Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ram 2500 Short Bed that's Easy to Remove Head Off
    As far as slider hitches go the B and W Patriot Slider part # BWRVK3270 would probably be the easiest to remove the head of to make removing it a bit easier. The base will still be pretty heavy but its the only option we have that's going to be easier to take apart to make easier for install/removal. For a rail kit confirmed as a fit for your 2018 Ram 2500 short bed you'd then want the kit part # BWRVK2602 which is a confirmed fit.

  • Can the Handle on B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2018 Ram 2500 Be Used From Side of Truck
    The B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # BWRVK3270 is an excellent option for a 2018 Ram 2500 when used with the B&W Custom Installation Kit part # BWRVK2602. In regards to the latching handle, most will climb up onto the bedside (i.e. standing on the tire) in order engage or disengage but that is about the best I could do for you as the there are simply too many factors to be able to give you a clear, cut and dry answer.

For that all you'd need is the part # BWRVK2602 and you'd be set if your truck does not have the factory fifth wheel rail kit.

  • Can Ram Truck with RamBoxes Tow Fifth Wheel Trailer
    The Ram trucks that have the Ramboxes are a bit of a challenge to tow a fifth wheel trailer with the issue is not the height of the bed rails so much as it is the width of the bed rails. Since they are much wider and make the truck bed quite a bit narrower there isn't enough room for the pin box of the fifth wheel trailer to pivot out when making turns. The pin box of the trailer would hit the Ramboxes before a sharp turn could be made which is why the only solution is to install a Sidewinder...
