Video Transcript for Curt 5th Wheel Kit Installation - 2006 Chevrolet Silverado

Hi there, Chevy owners. Today, on your 2006 Chevrolet 2500, we're gonna be taking a look at and showing you how to install Curt's above bed rail kit. And this is what our rail kit looks like when it's installed. It is an above the bed rail kit, so it will take up a little bit of your bed space. But it is fairly low, so it doesn't really inhibit it too much, maybe just when you're sliding stuff back and forth. It is gonna allow you to attach a fifth wheel to your vehicle.

There is multiple slots in it, so it is designed to work with many different fifth wheels out there. We've got a ton of fifth wheels here at etrailer. Our customer here is using Curt's Q20, but we do have a lot available here. This kit is custom-fit for this vehicle which makes the installation easier than a universal rail kit would be. The brackets for the sides are custom-fit for it.

So, that way, all of the holes in the brackets line up with the holes in the frame, making the installation significantly easier. Your rails sit here on top. You simply mark them out and we drill out the holes and they will bolt directly to our side plates as well as our bed to give us a nice, secure mounting point for our fifth wheel here. You'll attach your fifth wheel using pins. You can see, there's multiple different holes here, depending on the size of the fifth wheel that you're gonna be putting in here, and the pins attach here.

Just for the pin and clip, there's a total of four of those at each corner of our fifth wheel. Now, as far as the installation goes on this, the instruction says, it'll take about 90 minutes to install. I think they're a little bit low on the low end there just because these outer bolts can be pretty tricky to get to to torque down because the frame is so close to them. And the side plates have to torque to it, very massively high torque, so you are gonna have to have a very large torque wrench to be able to do this as well. So, just keep that in mind.

If you don't have these pieces of equipment at home, you need a torque wrench that can go above 300-foot pounds, if you don't have that, you may wanna seek professional installation 'cause the tools to do this job can be quite expensive as well. Again, we talked about 90 minutes is what the instruction says, but I found that this is really closer to probably about a three or four-hour install, just because of how hard it is to get to some of those bolts to tighten them down. And if you're doing this at home and you don't have a lift, you guys probably know why you'd also wanna take that into account. If you've got to lift, you could probably should have a couple hours off that. But with no lift, it is quite a bit more difficult than it would be, than like it is here, where we have a lift at the shop. So, now that we've covered some of the features here of our fifth wheel, why don't you follow along with us in the shop and we'll show you how to get it installed. We'll begin our installation by lowering down our spare tire. We'll get that thing out of the way. It'll make our installation a whole lot easier if that's not there. So, now we'll need to position our front rail. Your front and rear rail are gonna be the same, so you just pick one of your two rails and set it into position. We'll need to center it side to side. And we'll also need to set it the correct distance from the back of our truck bed for the appropriate size that our truck bed is. So, whether you got a shorter or a long bed, the measurement is gonna change, so you wanna refer to your instructions for the right one. And we'll be using a short bed here, and we're gonna measure it from here at the end of the bed. We'll find the measurements outlined in our instructions, and we're gonna make a little mark there. We're gonna do the same thing on the other side, that way, we'll have a mark on each side to make sure our rail's in the correct position. Next, I'm just gonna be marking the center, so I'm just going line to line here and I'm gonna find that center line. I'm just gonna mark that right on there, so we know where the center is. We'll now mark our holes and prepare to drill them. And we're gonna be using a combination of a paint stick and a center punch. For our front rail here, the one closest to the cab, we're gonna mark at the center of the outer holes on each side and the center hole towards the cab. So, we're just gonna go right down in the center to make our mark. We're trying to make sure that we are in the center of the hole there. After we make the mark with the paint stick, we're gonna take our center punch, we're gonna put that in the center, and then we're gonna mark that. The paint stick just helps the mark we're making to stand out better. You can do it just the center punch without the paint stick, but I just liked that for visibility. We're just gonna repeat this now for all of the remaining holes, and then we'll grab our eighth-inch drill bit to start drilling them out. And once we've got them all marked, we can move our rail out of the way before we start to drill. We're using that center punch location that we've marked and an eighth-inch drill bit to drill right on through. And we're just gonna repeat this for each of the locations that we marked. So, now we just wanna double-check to make sure that our holes are gonna line up with our side plate brackets, so I put a flashlight up there, shining down through one of the holes. We can see, it's kinda shine right on top of the frame there. We're setting our brackets into place. And if we look, look at that, the light goes right into the center of our hole, so that looks good. Just check your other holes here. So, on your side plate, you're gonna have a front hole. We can see here that this lines up with an opening, it's all dark. And then our back hole here also lines up with an opening in the frame. So, we can see, we've got our bracket here in the right position. The only thing really else that you can do is to just double-check yourself. You can move your light to the next hole, just moving that over, and then we're just gonna verify that this lines up with our hole. And it looks like that lines up right with our whole as well. So, this all looks good. You can double-check the other side. And then from there, we can now enlarge it to the larger sizes. We'll now take our 9/16 drill bit and we're gonna enlarge each of the holes that we had just drilled, so we can get our brackets all bolted together. We'll now vacuum up the mess we made. And use a little bit of clear coat to protect against rust and corrosion on the fresh spots we just drilled in. We exposed some bare metal there, so we're just gonna put a little bit of that on there to seal it up. So, now we're ready to put our rail back into place. Before we set it down, though, we're gonna take the spacers that come in our kit. They're kind of a U-shaped spacer. They got like a little U-cutout. These guys here, we're gonna just set just like this around these holes. And that way, when we put our rail on top and when we go to tighten it down, that's gonna take up the gap between the corrugation here. The middle one, we are gonna use a spacer also, but the spacer is gonna go underneath the bed 'cause this is a raised one, whereas these ones are in lowered sections. So, now we'll set our rail into place. Line it up with our holes and just drop our hardware right down in. So, now we can put on our side plates. The whole here and here in the frame, the ones that are slotted, is where our side plate's gonna attach to our frame. You'll use two large bolts that come in your kit. And we have real fat bolts, about 3/4 inch. You'll see that one is slightly longer than the other. The shorter one is for your front hole and the longer one is for the rear hole. You'll also have two different sizes of washers that come in your kit. The bigger washer is for our longer bolt, and the smaller washer is for the smaller bolt. So, now that we've got those ready, the larger one here, this actually can just poke right in. You should be able to just reach right around the frame and poke it right in. There's really no obstructions or anything, so I'm just taking my hand here. I'm just reaching right around and just poking it in right there. Now, for the shorter one, to get this one installed, your frame is obstructed, you can't just reach straight on through, there's frame in there, we'll use the fish wire that comes in our kit, we're gonna push it in and angle it towards the rear. I like to take the end of it here and just put a, kind of a bend in it, like that. That'll ensure that our fish wire shouldn't be able to slide all the way through on us, it kinda catches there. This is gonna thread onto the other side of our fish wire, so we're gonna head underneath and thread that on there. So, here's our fish wire where it comes out of that opening in the frame. We're gonna thread that larger bolt onto the fish wire here. And then we're just gonna set that in the frame and then we'll head back outside to pull it through. So, we're here on the other side, we're just taking that fish wire that we attached to it. You kinda have to the angle the head towards the back a little bit to come in, kind of an angle like this to straighten it out, because of the obstruction on this side of the frame. And then that guy is just gonna chill there for a second, we can grab our side plate. And here's our side plate. You can see here that the frame of the side plate here, it does kinda stick out towards you on the front. And that's because, if you look at our frame on our vehicle, it sticks out towards you, so it's shaped to match the frame of the vehicle. So, we're just gonna line this up. The fish wire will go through the large hole here. It's okay if it falls down in there, that's why we got the fish wire there. We'll then lift it up. We're gonna line up the rear hole with the bolt that we pushed through. We'll try and get this lined up on here. And then, you know, sometimes, it just doesn't wanna work out and falls back in. That's not a big deal, we can push it back through the other side. So, we'll just raise it up for now. We'll get this bolt through. Put the weight, kinda sit on it there, it'll help keep that bolt from falling back through. You can pull your fish wire off, and then thread a large nut onto it. We're gonna grab that other bolt now and we're gonna push that back through the hole and we're gonna put a nut on it as well. All right, and then we got this one started here. Now, you might notice that you got two of these holes here in the back. You'll wanna choose the most appropriate one for your vehicle. Ours is gonna be the lower one, 'cause we want this to be parallel with the frame, so that way, the upper parts of our bracket here are very close to the bottom of our bed. We'll now gonna put on the hardware for the carriage bolts that we dropped down. You can see, they're dropping down through our side plate bracket here. These are going to attach using the square spacers. You can see, it look like this here. Slide your spacer up. And then thread a nut onto it. I find it easier to do this from underneath the vehicle. And another thing that I did to make things a little easier when doing this is I took the other rail that comes in our kit and I sat it on top of the rail that we already had our bolts going down through. The purpose of that is to keep me from pushing the bolts back up through the bed, back up into the bed. I don't wanna push them up, so I put that other rail just sitting right on top of it. That way, the weight of the rail kinda keeps me from preventing from pushing that back up in there. We're gonna do the same thing over here on the driver's side. You just wanna take a little bit more time on this side. Your fuel tank's right here, so it's really hard to get your hands up in here. This is the part where you might get a little bit frustrated. You just take a break for a second and come back to it. You will be able to get them on there. Your hands do fit, it's just very, very tight. So, now we'll come to our center bolt here that we put down. Just like up top where we're in our lower corrugations, we're gonna put one of these U-shaped spacers in place on the underside of this one. And then we're gonna take the other spacers like we we're using on our, for our attachment to our side frame. We're gonna slide that on and then secure it with nut. Now, the next thing that you may or may not need to do, it's up to you, this heat shield, on the right here, does kind of obstruct the attachments for where our rear rail's gonna go, it's gonna go across this way and it's gonna attach to our side bracket right here, I can easily get to this rear hole here, but the front one's a little bit instructed by the heat shield. And the instructions want you to cut this heat shield out of here, but in all honesty, it's really not obstructing it that much. So, I think what we're gonna do is we're just gonna bend it out of the way. Now, we could probably bend it right back once we're done, 'cause we just need to be able to get our hands in there and our tools to be able to work. And honestly, that's probably good enough. I mean, I can see in here really well, we should be able to get our tools in there. If it becomes an issue later, we might just cut a little chunk of this out to be able to access it, but I really think we're gonna be fine just like that. So, we got our front rail in. The next step is to take your fifth wheel and set it into your front rail. After you've got it set into the front rail, take your rear rail here and we're just gonna slide it in underneath because it's just still loose. I did run the pins in it just to make sure that I had it all lined up properly and everything, but just get those out. If you're setting your fifth wheel just right on top of your rail here, it's loose, so it does just kinda lifts up and down, so we set our other rail there. Our fifth wheel is going to ensure that this rail is in the correct location 'cause we've already got it sat down in there. And with our rail in here like this, that'll ensure that we're able to take our fifth wheel in and out and it's gonna line up properly. So, after you've got your fifth wheel sat into your rear rail and your front rail, we're gonna mark the holes and then drill those just like we did at the front rail. There is gonna be a small difference, though, and that's just the location of the holes. Instead of using the furthest outside holes, on your rear rail, you're gonna move in one set of holes. And we're gonna do the same thing on the other side, move in one set of holes, so that way, we're drilling into this upper corrugation. The only other difference is, the middle here, is we're not using the whole towards the cab, but we're you're gonna use the hole towards the rear of the vehicle, so I've got those marked. At this point now, I'm just gonna lift up on the fifth wheel, slide this rail out, drill those out. I'll start with the 1/8 just like we did before to verify that they're in the correct location. And if everything looks good, you're kinda looking down through with a flashlight, just like we did on the front, we'll then enlarge into those 9/16 and install our hardware. We're now ready to put our rail back into position. Whoa, too far. There we go. Now that we've dropped down in there, we're gonna take our pins and insert these. Now, the instructions tell you to go from the front to the rear, but here at etrailer, we prefer to go from the inside out to ensure that nothing can catch on your clip that's gonna go in there. We don't need to put the clip on it just yet, we just wanna have these pins in here to ensure that our rail is in the correct location, so it can be removed and inserted freely. At this point now, we can drop our bolts down. We might have to shift the rail just a little bit, it does have a little bit of movement still in it. 'Cause it looks like we're just a hair offset to the passenger's side there. Make sure that they all dropped down in there, the square head is seated, and then we can head underneath to start securing it. And here we are on the under side. We're gonna do just like we did with our front rail. It's gonna get the exact same pieces of hardware. Anywhere where there's a raised corrugation, which is all of our rear rail here, so each one of these lower ones is gonna get one of those U-shaped ones, as well as one of the rectangular-shaped ones. So, on our passenger's side here, we got the heat shield here, we bent it out of the way and you should be able to get up in there. The U-shaped spacer on this side does need to go between your side rail and the bed frame. And then the rectangular one is gonna go on the bottom side of our side plate. And we'll just put our nut on it. And we're just gonna repeat that for the remaining pieces of hardware. And then we can go back and tighten down our hardware. We're gonna use a 19-millimeter socket or a wrench, depending on how difficult it is to get to. And that's gonna be for all of the bolts that go down through our rails, through the bed. We're gonna tighten those first, and then we'll tighten the side plates. After tightening your hardware, we can go back and torque it to the specifications outlined in your instructions. For some of your hardware, you may need to use a cruise foot. So, now that we've got our rail and side plates fully tightened and torqued, at this point, you can secure your fifth wheel to your rails, slide your pins through, make sure you put your clips on the other side, and we're ready to hook up our fifth wheel and hit the road from here. And that completes our installation of Curt's above bed rail kit on our 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500..

The curt custom kit was very well made I have a 2005 chevy 3500 Dully long bed A couple of things that you will have to do when installing the kit you will have to drill two holes in your frame for the installation of the frame brackets on the front a 1/2 inch hole and 7/8 hole you will have to remove your spare tire you will not have to drop your gas tank or cut your exhaust heat shield out of the way but the only thing you will have to do is cut a quarter inch off of the large bolt on the driver side front three-quarter inch bolt because it will not fit in The frame area properly without doing that other than that the install was great and very well-made it Took me 3.5 hrs to install and my hands are beat up good luck and safe travel

Another success from etrailer! Ordered a 5th wheel rails kit for my Chevy 2500 Duramax. It arrived within a couple of days as scheduled. Even though I didn't install it myself, the install fit my truck well and looks very clean. I didn't get any nasty calls from my installer so I am guessing there weren't any issues. Lol. I will continue using etrailer as my go to place for quality parts that fit well at a good price!

2004 Chevy Silverado 2500HD, installed the Custom 5th Wheel Installation kit along with the Q16 Slider Hitch. Product arrived very quickly after ordering. It was shipped in 3 different boxes. One box was a little beat up during shipping, but all of the parts were there and undamaged. I watched the installation video once, then my brother-in-law and I tackled the job which took us about 2 hours. This was not difficult to install other than trying to get the 1/2" bolt through the hole on the driver side of the frame (the frame is boxed there). The included wire guide helped, but you still have to manipulate the bolt into the right position in a very tight spot. Everything turned out to be a perfect fit, no modifications needed. Also, I removed both rear wheels before starting which gave us plenty of working room. I have purchased from etrailer in the past and will continue to use them in the future.

Just received this and haven't installed it yet. I plan to add it to my truck in about 2 weeks. This is exactly the same as my last truck which was a perfect fit. It also worked great pulling my 35-foot fifth wheel RV. I look forward to the same quality as before, perfection.

The installation kit had everything I needed & fit perfectly as it should have. I would have given a five star rating but neither the instructions nor the video mentioned lowering the gas tank which was neccessary on my 2009 Chevy dually with the 35 gal tank. Aside from that the install went smoothly. I would have no problem recommending this kit & etrailer to anyone

Very strong product I would give five stars except the instructions would not be good for an every day truck owner but the E trailer video is really good the only issue with a long bed is you have to drill 4 holes in the front of the frame two on each side and be aware if you do have a long bed truck you will need a big drillbit for instants I used a 7/8 but the overall product is good shipping was great could not imagine having to install the universal brackets and this kit made it so much easier


Comments
Update I have probably put about 5000 miles of towing With this kit I have not had an issue with it still looks good no rust all the bolts are still tight

I wish I could give two ratings for this kit, one for quality of product, and one for quality of fit and instruction. The product quality, once it is installed is very nice and heavy duty. The instructions, and the fit on my 2005 GMC one ton dually leave a lot to be desired. They say it should take about 90 minutes to install. Plan on about 8 hours if you don't have a lift, and plan on drilling 3/4 inch holes in the frame rails. You better have access to a compressor, cut off wheel, 1/2 inch impact gun, 1/2 inch drill motor and 3/4 drill or reamer. This is NOT for the average "weekend warrior" with a small set of hand tools to install.


Comments
Very heavy duty. Very secure. No problems aside from the initial installation. Nice setup.

I just received the hitch. I ordered it very late New Years night. It shipped the next day with an estimated delivery of Friday before 8pm. I received it on Thursday about noon. Awesome super-fast shipping. It came in 3 HEAVY boxes, one of which was slightly damaged but I have not unpacked it yet. I hope to do so this weekend. I have bought from etrailer before and have no doubt this will be as good as the other purchases I have made.


Comments
My son and I installed this hitch without a lot of problems. It arrived complete with all parts intact. It took us about 2 hours of leisure effort to get everything installed. The only thing we could not do was torque the larger frame bolts since I do not have a torque wrench that goes that high. One call to a truck shop got that settled for much less than it would cost for a new wrench.Everything else went together easily.

Installation was simple enough with the guide. Measurements were spot on and bolted through the bed correctly. The frame rails are a different story...the front holes shown in video were for a short bed. On the long bed version, the two front holes have to drilled on each side. Make sure to tighten the bolts in the bed first to ensure alignment. The driver side frame rail doesn’t allow for the fish wire for the larger of the two bolts, because the fuel tank support straps are directly behind and Chevy made this section of the frame narrower. The bolt must be installed from the outside with a small person, daughter-in-law, holding the nut inside the frame and tighten from the outside. The passenger side, no problems at all. Once those four holes are drilled everything else is a cake walk. May be different on other models than Chevy, but would have been nice to know before and to have a large enough drill bit on hand. If not for the extra drilling and frustration this would have received a 5 star.

Instructions were very easy to follow, diagrams were detailed and clear. The installation itself is a bit of a chore but with simple hand tools and a helper to hold the carriage bolts inside the bed, the install took less than 90 minutes.


Comments
1 Year later, the brackets and rails still look new. the paint hasnt chipped or faded. I interchange a 5th wheel saddle and gooseneck ball plate often and even the paint near the mounting points still looks good.

This is the 4th hitch I have installed over the years so I'm not a novice. I thought I would order the custom kit for ease of installation. Was I wrong. followed the instructions to the letter. I ended up taking my truck to the dealership to drop the fuel tank to reach the front drivers side nut for the front rail. Also on the frame about midway it's double thickness. Tried using the wire provided to "fish" the front bolt in.. Was only enough room to barely get the wire in much less the bolt.. Bought a tap for $45.00 a threaded the frame instead. Over all I should have taken my old system out and put it in this truck. The nuts were welded to the frame and you just insert the bolts and tighten.

Installed this hitch in my 2007 gmc 2500 classic. The hitch material was made of good quality material. It took some time for the install due to limited room between the frame and hitch rail mounting brackets. Also I would recommend having an extra set of hand when it comes to torquing the bolts in the frame due to the heads of the bolts wanted to spin so I needed someone to hold a wrench on the bolt while I tightened the nut. Other than that the install went pretty smooth.

Product was delivered as promised in 3 days. Packaging could have been better,nuts and bolts were all over in the box. The bag should have been taped to something. But at least I had all the parts. Took me 3 hrs. by myself. Dropped the spare, have a 6" lift so I was able to sit up under the bed. Couldn't get the heat shield off so i cut the box end off of an old wrench and slid it in to a 1/2 pipe I had, about 2' long. Was able to get everything very tight and reach each nut easy enough. Good thing I had spare parts from the last rail install. The front rail needed horseshoe washers on all 4 bolts on the outside. 1 in the bed and 1 below the bed to make it tight. This is in my 05 GMC Sierra shkrt bed. One other thing. I stuck the coil end of the fish wire through the hole and then put the bolt on it. A LOT easier. Would feel better with nyloc nuts as well, but it is what it is. Now just need to raise my trailer to match my truck and away we go.

This kit was just what I needed. It arrived in good shape and it waited patiently until I had time to install. Many thanks for your video of the installation. I followed to a T and it went together fine. Please note: I don’t have a lift or anything like it. This was done with all four on the ground. Regardless, I’m 67 and managed to get this done in 3 days ! Anybody else could do it in much less time, but I’m pretty methodical and need to take a lot of breaks as it is 105+ in Arizona ! I need to find someplace that I can get it lifted up, so I can get a final torque on the rail mounting bolts. Highly recommend !!!! Thanks !

Bought this for a friend and we installed it in a few hours. Works great . Only needed a slight modification(Drilling for one mounting hole) that was not on the frame. Happy with this product and etrailer.

Greatly appreciated the prompt response to help guide my purchase. The information also helped so I could have an informed discussion with the RV repair tech who was saying it would take 4 hours to install the Curt Hitch. With the information from etrailer--I knew what to say to confirm it would be a quicker installation.This is the second item I have purchased from etrailer and will continue to shop and learn as need be. Thank you

The mounting brackets are well made and had all the mounting hardware. However the kit it did not fit the truck as described. had to drill all the holes in the frame except for one on each side. mounting hardware had to be put in backwards on drivers side and very hard to get to. install took 6 hours.

One of the many great things that I like about etrailer is their sales support and communication throughout my buying experience. This item here will save you money if you contract with someone to install your bed rails, and if you do it yourself you have less drilling and installation time.
