Product is great. Installation was a little awkward. That is the reason for the four stars. Other then that I would recommend this to someone who is looking for a rail system.



by:

Install kit reported as “Delivered” but the rails were not in the shipment, only the hardware.



by:

Exactly what I ordered in great shape. Shipping was painless and on time.



by:

Packaging was the worst I have ever seen some bubble wrap and better packaging go along ways missing half my hardware do to the poor shipping quality not impressed, if I was knowing I would recieve only half of what ordered would have liked to pay half the price!

I can understand why you would be unhappy with the way the order arrived. I will share this with our shipped department and I will have our customer service team reach out to you.



by:

Part was not for my model as expected. Customer service never sent the paperwork for return and return shipping was not covered.



by:

I have not installed it yet. but appears to be good.
The packaging is a little light for the weight, open box. some missing parts, (bolts and nuts). UPS has gotten busier, maybe a little harder on things.



by:

etrailer is my go to place. Everything i ordered came in when they said it would. Have nothing but good things to say about etrailer. I would like to give a shout out to Ashley for answering all my questions and helping me out thank you Ashley!!!



by:

After working around a few issues, install was complete in about 2 hours. Help was needed holding bolts in place from top side so nuts could be installed. Difficult area around fuel tank but only because of limited space and wiring harness that needed moved.



by:

No drilling in frame makes a lot easier.if I had to drill holes in frame it would have taken me two days.I like the rails.

Speedy service on time delivery

Got the merchandise in just a couple of days. They upgraded me to express shipping at no additional cost which I thought was pretty good. I have not installed it yet but if it fits as they promise I will be very pleased. So far I would highly recommend this company.

  • Install Video Guide to Install Curt Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit # C16427 in 2016 Ram 2500
    I attached a link to an install video that shows how the part # C16427 installs. The part number in the video is the kit that includes the rails part # C16427-104. The spacer configuration really depends on each bed. Since the corrugation will be slightly different for every truck you will have to determine whether it should go above or below the bed based on your application.

    There are several configurations of the 2014 Ram. I would need to know if you have a 1500, 3500, or 3500, bed length, cab style, and if your truck has the factory prep package or not.

  • 5th Wheel Installation Kit Recommendation for a 2014 Ram 2500 and a Reese 16K Hitch
    To install fifth wheel base rails on your 2014 Ram 2500 without the factory fifth wheel package, you can use the Curt Custom Installation Kit, # C16427-204 or # C16427-104. The only difference between these two kits is the finish of the base rails. Install kit # C16427-204 has carbide (matte) finish rails and install kit # C16427-104 has gloss finish rails. The base rails included in these kits are compatible with your Reese 16K sliding fifth wheel hitch, so there will be no compatibility...

  • Brackets and Hardware for Curt 5th Wheel Installation Kit C16427-204 on 2020 RAM 2500
    You are correct that the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Ram Truck - Carbide Finish # C16427-204 fits your 2020 RAM 2500 without the 5th wheel prep package. This allows you to install a standard 5th wheel hitch, which you already seem to have. Since you already have the rails and just need the brackets and hardware, you can just go with this kit: Curt Custom 5th Wheel Bracket Kit for Ram Truck # C16427.

  • Curt Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2015 Ram 2500
    Actually both rail kits are confirmed to fit your 2015 Ram 2500. The difference is the finish that is on the rails of either kit. The part # C16427-104 has a gloss finish and the part # C16427-204 has a satin finish. These are both custom fit rail kits that will install in about half the time as a universal kit and will minimize drilling. I attached an install video for this kit for you to check out as well.

  • Correct Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for a 2019 Ram 2500
    The correct Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for a 2019 Ram 2500 is part # C16427-104 for gloss or part # C16427-204 for carbide. In regards to fifth wheel hitch compatibility, it will allow you to mount anyone that uses above bed industry standard rails but I am not familiar at all with a "Skyjacker Ultra Slide". If you instead mean the Demco Hijacker Autoslide then so long as it's the above bed model then yes.

  • Reusing Truck Bed Mounting Rails to Move Fifth Wheel Hitch from 2011 Silverado to 2014 Ram 2500
    Curt is our only supplier that offers an above the bed fifth wheel hitch install kit for the 2014 Ram 2500. If you currently have Curt bed rails, you can reuse your existing rails and use the # C16427 frame brackets. It is strongly recommended that the frame brackets and the bed rails be from the same manufacturer. Using brackets and rails from two different manufacturers might lead to an unknown weight capacity, which would be bad. Because of this, if your bed rails were not manufactured...

  • What is Difference Between Curt Fifth Wheel Rail Kits that Fit 2021 Ram 2500
    Both of the rail kits you mentioned fit both your 2021 Ram 2500 and your Curt A16 slider hitch. The difference is the finish of the rails. The part # C16427-104 is a gloss finish on the rails that install in the bed whereas the part # C16427-204 is a matte finish paint on the rails.

  • Will the Old Style Hijacker 5th Wheel Hitch Work with a 2014 Ram 2500
    Hijacker was acquired by Demco a few years ago and Demco redesigned the hitch so it would work with the industry standard above-bed base rails. Unfortunately the old models of the Hijacker fifth wheel hitch will not work with the 2014 Ram 2500. The older Hijacker hitches used their own mounting brackets and base rails that were exclusive to their hitches. Since the hitches were redesigned, the old style frame brackets and rails were discontinued. We do have several other trailer hitch...

  • Is The Curt Custom 5th Wheel Rail Kit # C16427-204 A Fit For A 2022 Ram 2500 6-1/2 Bed
    Yes, the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Ram Truck # C16427-204 is a compatible fit for both the 6-1/2' and 8' beds of a 2022 Ram 2500. These custom fit brackets provide a much easier and quicker installation because they utilize the factory holes in the frame instead of forcing you to drill through to frame to install the mounting bolts. If you don't already have an in-bed 7-way connection included in your Ram I highly recommend installing the Curt 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Custom...

  • Recommended Curt 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit for 2019 Ram 2500 8 Foot Bed
    I do have a great rail kit available from Curt that will work perfectly on your 2019 Ram 2500, however the Curt Universal Base Rail and Installation Kit # C16200 will not fit. Because of the frame rail design on your Ram none of the universal brackets will fit, so a custom kit is required. For this I recommend the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16427-104, which includes the industry-standard base rails to which your hitch will mount along with custom brackets that will use...

  • Will Curt Custom 5th Wheel Installation Kit # C16427-104 Fit 2014 Ram 2500 Diesel/Reese R16 Slider
    If your 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel has the factory 5th wheel towing prep package with the OEM pucks (or sockets) in the truck bed then you can use the Reese 5th Wheel Adapter that you referenced, part # RP30154. This works with both 6- and 8-foot beds. Please refer to the linked photo. This adapter serves as the equivalent of standard above-bed base rails and your Reese 16K Slider (or other industry-standard) hitch can mount directly to it without need for base rails.

    I have a solution for you, however, the Reese Rail Adapter, # RP30154, will not work on models without the factory fifth wheel package. Instead, I recommend using the Curt Fifth Wheel Installation Kit, # C16427-104 or # C16427-204. The only difference between these two kits is the finish of the base rails. The 104 kit base rails have a gloss finish and the 204 kit base rails have a carbide (matte) finish. These kits use the industry standard above bed base rails, so they will work with...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2016 Dodge 2500 4x4 Diesel Longhorn Laramie Package
    For a fifth wheel rail kit custom fit for your 2016 Ram 2500 short bed that is available right now you'd want the B and W part # BWRVK2602 that will install easily in your truck and is the exact type of rails that your Reese 15k hitch needs.

  • Reese Fifth Wheel and Curt Rail Kit Recommendation for Dodge Ram 2500 2014
    The rails of the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Rail and Bracket Kit part # C16427-104 that you referenced are considered industry standard rails. This means that a Reese hitch would work well in them. For a Reese fifth wheel hitch you could get the Reese # RP30047. If you check out the product description you will see a line that says it works with Curt rails. This is an excellent hitch with a 360 degree contact head that will provide minimal jarring and chucking. I attached a review video for...

    The B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails # BWRVK2602 is the kit I recommend for your 2020 Ram 2500. This kit does contain the rails as it is recommended not to mix and match the mounting hardware from the rails as the mounting hardware hole position can be different. We do not carry any Husky rails or mounting brackets at this time.
