  • Base Rail Kit for Pullrite Hitch with 2022 Ram 2500
    What I think you are asking for is a hardware kit for Pullrite Base Rails. While that is not an item we carry we do have several base rail options for your 2022 Ram 2500. Providing your current Pullrite hitch mounts using ISR bed rails, I suggest the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches, # BWRVK2602.

  • Recommendation for Being Able to Tow a Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Trailer with a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500
    To install a fifth wheel hitch in the bed of your truck you are going to have to remove the gooseneck hitch to install the fifth wheel rails. But what you can do is install the part # 16055 in the fifth wheel rails so that you could tow a gooseneck trailer if needed. The fifth wheel rail kit part # C16301-200 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 though and the slider hitch part# C16546 that you referenced would also be a great choice since you have...

  • Curt 5th Wheel Bracket and Base Rails That Fit 2012 Ram 2500 Truck
    While we do have installation brackets and base rails that fit your 2012 Ram 2500, the part you mentioned does not fit your truck. Instead, you have two options, a custom kit that does not require drilling and a semi-custom kit that does require drilling. The no-drill, custom fit option is: Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Dodge Ram # C16420-204 The option that does require drilling is the Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Dodge Ram 2500/3500 # C16301-200 I...

  • Does OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Ram Fit 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 Short Bed
    There are 5th wheel hitches available for your truck, but the OEM trailer hitches for are designed to fit the factory puck system of the newer Ram trucks, so they won't work in a 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 short bed. The Ram OEM 5th wheel hitches are made by Curt, so if you like them you can add the same type of brand/model, but will need to add base rails to your truck. What you can use is the following: - Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with R20 Slider # C16536 - Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel...

  • Recommended Non-Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for 2012 Ram 3500 with Ramboxes
    For your 2012 Ram 3500 with Ramboxes, since you don't need a sliding hitch I recommend using the Curt Q20 # C16130 and base rails # C16301-200. This hitch has a 20,000-lbs capacity and the base rail kit is a custom installation for your Ram 3500, so it will limit any drilling into the frame that might otherwise be required on a universal base rail kit. The Q series hitches are a nice value option that provide you with a fully pivoting, 360 degree movement, hitch head to help give you a...

  • Will Curt or Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch fit Non Industry-Standard Base Rails in 2003 Dodge Ram
    The Replacement Rails for Demco Hijacker 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Older Models # DM6014 will give you base rails that are not industry standard, meaning they would not be compatible with a Reese, Curt, or other model of fifth wheel hitch. These hitches mount 22” front to back and either 20-5/8” or 29” wide and will require industry-standard rails in your 2003 Dodge Ram. For example, if you wanted to use the Curt A16 # C16120 fifth wheel hitch you would need to use Fifth Wheel Installation...

  • Installation instructions for the Curt Q20 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch on a 2003 Dodge Ram 3500
    To determine the mounting location for the brackets and rails in the bed of your 2003 Dodge Ram 3500, you will need to measure 28-3/8 inches from the rear edge of the truck bed towards the truck cab. This will be the location of the rear most edge of the rear rail. This measurement will get you started and from there you will need to follow the installation instructions that come with the hitch. For the 2003 Dodge 3500 you can use the CURT Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit, part...

    There is a heavy-duty 5th wheel hitch that you can use with your 2010 Ram 3500, though there isn't one that has a 37,000 lb weight capacity. Instead, the highest capacity 5th wheel hitch available has a 30,000 lb capacity, and is from Curt: - Curt A30 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C66HR The A30 uses an interlocking dual jaw system that wraps totally around the king pin, and this vice-like connections means that the back-and-forth chucking, bucking and jarring that you get when towing with...

  • Curt 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit for 2005 Dodge Ram with Short Bed
    If your 2005 Dodge Ram with the short bed is a 1500 then you will need the Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16303-200 as opposed to the Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails with Installation Kit # C16100. For a 2500 or 3500 same year Dodge Ram you need the Curt Semi-Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16301-200 instead. Both kits give you industry standard base rails that are compatible with the wide majority of 5th wheel hitches out there. One other thing you may...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for 2009 Dodge Ram 3500 For Husky Ez Roller Hitch
    The Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit, part # C16420-204 will work great for your 2009 Dodge Ram 3500 and your Husky 5th wheel hitch if it is designed to fit industry standard rails. I recommend using a custom kit like # C16420-204 that cuts the installation time in half because there is no drilling required. This kit includes the brackets, rails, and hardware needed. We also offer the semi-custom installation kit, part # C16301-200. This kit does require drilling when installing,...

  • Curt 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit Options for 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel 4x4 Pickup
    For your 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 diesel 4x4 pickup you can use Curt Universal Base Rail Kit # C16200 as long as the truck does not have overload brackets. Universal kits cost a little less but they require more drilling and a longer overall installation time. The fastest and easiest 5th wheel base rail installation comes from using a custom-fit kit # C16420-204 that includes custom frame brackets that use existing holes in the frame. This means a lot less drilling. Semi-Custom kit # C16301-200...

    To tow a fifth wheel trailer with your 2007 Dodge Ram with a 6-1/2 foot bed you will need to install base rails in your truck bed in order to mount a Curt sliding hitch. Base rails come with installation kits and there are two different options for an '07 Dodge Ram, depending on the model of your truck; I will list the kits and you can select the right one. Keep in mind these kits come with both the base rails and frame brackets so you do not need to purchase them separately. - 2007 Dodge...

  • 5th Wheel Towing Capacity and 5th Wheel Hitch and Rails for 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 SLT 4WD Short Bed
    The towing capacity for your 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 SLT is determined by a number of factors: axle ratio, engine, cab size, bed length, transmission, and if it is 2WD or 4WD. You gave me enough information that I could look up the capacity and determine your towing capacity is either 12,850 lbs (manual transmission) or 13,050 lbs (automatic transmission). With a short bed you'll need a sliding hitch and I recommend the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with R16 Roller # 16516 for a budget-friendly...

  • Inexpensive 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Install Kit for a 2011 Ram 3500 Long Bed
    The universal installation kit that comes with Curt 5th wheel trailer hitch # C16116 will only fit your 2011 Ram 3500 long bed with the addition of bracket # RP58023. Then the installation will be similar to that of installation kit # RP30035-023. However, if your truck has overload springs, which is likely on a 3500 series, then this installation kit will not work. So instead of the Curt hitch and universal installation kit I recommend the Curt Semi-Custom kit, # C16301-200, which does...
