1998 Dodge 1500 4X4 with 6.5ft bed

the rails where I needed them and drilled trough the PU bed. Then bolted the frame mounts under the bed to hold in position for marking the holes that needed to be drilled through the frame rails.

Worked very well once I was able to get access to the frame rails by removing the fender flares and the inside plastic fenders. Used step drill to to drill through the frame rails after marking center by means of a large drill bit that fit the hole size needed.

Worked alone and I'm 72 so any younger whippersnapper should be able to accomplish the task.


Would of been 5 stars but had to do some custom modification to it on my 07.5 2500 dodge ram. As there is a set bolt on the frame so a small chunk of bracket had to be cut out for me to install it.



Still holding up and working


I did not receive my base rails and installation kit

We recently sent you a replacement bracket with rails kit and were wondering if you had any feedback about the product for other shoppers? We look forward to hearing from you.


This product fit well. It is well constructed in heavy duty. My contact at E trailer. Rob was fantastic. The package was damaged by UPS in transit and one of the brackets was lost. He helped me identify which bracket I needed and correctly sent me the bracket that I needed in a prompt manner. His professionalism and courtesy was top notch


This product worked well for what I needed and the price I wanted, it is universal so afew extra parts came with it. But I am very satisfied. I installed afew extra bolts just for added Security, it got the job done.


Poorly packed only revived 1 tail and 1 bracket and the instructions the othe tail 3 brackets and install kit missing.
Wait he’d a week to get it planed to pu a trailer in 3 days now thanks to poor package I will not be able to pick up the trailer and will lose the $500 deposit I put down.

Thank you for letting us know. Our customer service team should be reaching out to you in the near future.


Bailey was very helpful with my questions during the ordering process. The process was easy and delivery was right on time. Follow up customer service is a nice touch. Thank you, etrailer!


I love the Curt products.
Problem with
my order was.
The package came delivered in pieces.
And I am missing one of the small brackets that bolt to the frame.
Having to put off picking up our camper


Product and instructions were great. The packaging wasn’t excellent but everything made it. The finish on the rails was good and so was the hardware. Added this hitch to an 02 Silverado 1500 HD. Hope I didn’t void the warranty by welding on the frame


Was glad of easy instructions to help in putting it on my truck and delivery was in time also thanks so much! It worked out great.


I would like to leave a review but half my order was missing very poor packaging heavy items single cardboard box not happy about having to wait for missing items to be shipped



Works fine Customer service is very poor


It worked out great. Thanks for asking when I need something else I will let you know.


Awesome product, heavy duty, fit perfect, only complaint is the fish wire broke on my 3 bolt of 8 !!


you need new shipping my box was tore open parts lost.after 3 shipments i have all parts.but with great help from carol all is well


Your installer would not install it. Major let down as both my knees are bad, back is shot and a shoulder hurt. But I guess I'll have to figure it out.


This setup worked great! Put it in my long-bed 98 Dodge Ram 2500. The directions were very detailed and helpful. Measuring and setup was the time consuming part but we’ll worth it.


Excellent product! No issues after one year of use.


First package arrived missing several pieces. When I called, the lady stated for me to go through each piece of hardware and verify what is missing. The second time I called the second lady was much more helpful and shipped out everything right away.


I ordered this kit to install on my truck. It was shipped really fast got it within a couple of days. However All I got was the rails. Called told them I did not get any hardware at all. The sent the hardware out within 2 weeks seems to take longer to send out parts they forgot a lot longer. Again I never received all of the mounting brackets. Called again they said it would be another week or so to get the brackets. I’m waiting for my refund. I’m not happy with customer service at etrailer will not order from them again.


Timely delivery impressive


Received the heavy box delivered in a speedy manner. Put in truck as illustrated. Smooth installation of rails. Put the hitch mount on the rails but no pins to lock it to the rails. Buying the rail and hardware kit, I expected the kit to have included the 4 pins. Somewhat disappointed. I wanted to install and get on the road.

It is common for manufacturers to include 5th wheel rail pin and clips with the 5th wheel trailer hitch. If your hitch doesnt have the pin and clips anymore, they are available separately with part # C16902.


This is how I found my package when I got home on my front deck. I am not even sure if I have everything not very happy with it.


Was a good buy, easy install. Only problem was front brackets going to frame were the wrong ones for my 2012 Ram.


This was a great universal base system. It came with exactly what I needed to complete the installation quickly and efficiently.
