Video Transcript for Reese Quick Install 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit Installation - 2016 Ram 2500

Today on our 2016 Ram 2500, we will be installing the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches. It is part number RP50054-58. We have our 5th wheel rails installed. As you can see, we have various slots for different weight 5th wheel hitches as well as Goosenecks adapters that can fit. It is a traditional 10 bolt installation with 5 bolts in each rail. It is a very low profile design, so if you need to lay something flat in your bed like a sheet of plywood or a mattress, something of that nature, it won't stick up too high off the bed. Keep making it easy to tie down and transport down the road. The rails are made of a durable steel construction with a black powder coat finish. This will provide you with many years of problem-free service. Our frame brackets here do not require any drilling.

They go into existing holes already drilled into the frame with a threaded nut insert welded on, so you don't have to worry about holding a nut on the back side or anything while you install them. The only drilling that you have to do on this is through the bed of the truck itself, and that's fairly easy to do. Now that we've gone over some of the features of the rails, we will go ahead and show you how to install them. The first thing we are going to want to do is get our spare tire out from underneath the vehicle and set it out of the way. With our spare tire out of the way and the cable tucked up out of sight, we can take off this heat shield here using a 10 millimeter socket. There's two bolts on the back side. Now we're going to remove this tail pip section to get some access. To do that, there's a clamp near the back muffler. It has a 15 millimeter nut on the top of it.

Let's start with loosening that. That should be loose enough now to slide it off. Now we'll want to take this exhaust hanger off. First, let's spray it down with some lubricant to make it easier to slide off. Now we can pry against the back of it. With the tailpipe out of the hanger, we can start sliding it out of the muffler. All right, we get off the muffler, lift it up, we'll set it aside. Now on the passenger side frame rail of our vehicle, see these two threaded holes here We will be utilizing these for the installation of our brackets. On the driver's side our frame holes are currently obscured by these wiring harnesses and brake lines.

We'll take a plastic trim panel tool and pop off the clips holding into the frame rail for the time being so we can get our brackets behind them. Okay, all right. There's two different measurements depending if you have a long or short bed truck. Make sure you check your instructions depending on which vehicle you have. You'll be going from the edge of the bed. With those marks made, we can take our rail, slide it into place and we will try to center it with our rail. Now we'll start marking out the holes just using a drill bit.

I'll mark the center one too. We'll do the other outer one as well. On the other side of our rail, we'll do the fourth hole. With all of the holes marked, we'll move the rail. Using a very small drill bit- 1/8 of an inch or less, we'll drill our pilot holes on the outer side of the rails. Now we'll take our bracket onto the drivers side that goes to the rear. Position it like this over these two threaded frame holes that are pre-existing and the hole that we drilled in the bed will connect with this hole here on the top of the mount. Now we'll go underneath and we'll make sure that the hole we drilled in the bed lines up with the hole in the top of the bracket. Now that we can see that the hole matches up, we can enlarge our holes. We will repeat the process on the other side. We will drill out our hole to our final size which is 9/16. I'm using a step bit here, but if you don't have one of these available to you, you can just use a standard 9/16 inch drill bit. We will finish drilling out the rest of our holes. On our forward section of our rear bracket, there is a second layer of metal that we have to drill through using a 9/16 drill bit. Now we'll repeat the same on the other hole on the other side. The spacer needs to go between the top and the bottom layer of the forward hole on our bracket. We're using an inch and 1/8 step bit to enlarge our top hole. With that done, we can repeat the process on the other hole. We'll take these tube inserts, drop them through the large holes. Take these spacer plates, put them over the holes in the back of the bracket. Set our bracket down on top and we'll drop our bolts on through. Using the two longer bolts provided in the kit to go through the forward holes in the bracket. We'll go ahead and install our hardware on these long bolts here coming down from the front of our rear bracket. Using these conical tooth washer with the teeth going up towards the bed, and then a nut. We'll do the same thing on the other side. As you can see on the passenger side, the nut and the washer is a little bit harder to put in place because of this frame bracket that comes down for your track bar. You'll need to have some extra patience while you get that one started. Now we'll take our frame bracket for the driver's side. We'll slide the bolt that we dropped down through the top through this hole here, just like so, and we can install our hardware into the frame. The bracket is in place in the frame now with the bolt dropped down from the bed going to the other side of it. Just for a technical tip here, a word of advice, it's a good idea to take your bolts before you even put the bracket in place and test fit them into the frame to make sure that the threads on the frame are in usable condition. If they're not, you can just get a tap and dye set and clean out the threads a little bit with that. Or alternatively you can also spray it down with penetrating 00:07:56 oil and use a tube brush, in case you don't have one of those we have one available on our website. It is part number 814092. Now we'll take a conical tooth washer, again with the teeth facing into the bracket. Put on the bolt 00:08:11 get it started a few turns. Put the other bolt in. Now we can do the same on the other side. We can take this 1 by 3 inch block that has a hole in the center of it, insert it over the bolt that we dropped down from the top. Conical tooth washer, teeth facing up. Thread on our nut. We'll repeat the process on the other side. We'll take one of those U-spacers again that we used on the top, slide it over our center bolt here. Use another conical tooth washer and secure it with a nut. We'll take our other rail, set it in the rough position and we will take our 5th wheel and fit it over on top. Now with the base for our 5th wheel set on top of our rails, let's pin it into place to help secure it. Making sure we have the handle of the pin coming from the inside going out. With our 5th wheel in place on our rails and pinned into place, we will make sure everything is square and we will mark our locations for our holes on the front rail and drill them out.The bolts will be indifferent locations when we drill the holes out. Okay, with everything in position we'll mark our holes that we are going to drill. We'll do the third one in on both sides of the rail. We'll do the center one on the most forward side of the rail. With everything marked, we can go ahead and take the 5th wheel base out of place, get our rail out of position and we will drill a pile hole. Just like we did before, we will slide our bracket up and double check the position of our holes, make sure everything lines up. Looks like our holes are in a pretty good spot so we can continue drilling them out to our 9/16 final size. We'll do the same thing on the other side too. I'm going to drill this out using our step drill again. If you don't have a step drill, standard 9/16 drill bit works just fine. We will go ahead and do the other 4 holes the same way. With all of our holes drilled, we can set our rail into position. Take a spacer plate, slide it in for the middle hole on the front of the rail. Trap our bolt into it and drop our bolts in the third hole on either side. We'll grab our 5th wheel. Drop it into position, repin it. With that secure on our rails, now we can actually install our hardware underneath and our brackets. We'll slide our front bracket into position on the passenger side. Take our U-spacer plates, slide them over the bracket and around the bolt on both sides. I already had the back one in position. Slide up, take our bolt with the conical tooth washer facing towards the bracket and we'll insert it into the frame for both bolt holes. Now we will tighten these down by hand a little bit. We'll install the other 3 inch spacer plate over the large hole with the conical tooth washer going up. Then we'll put our nut on. Tighten it down by hand. We'll take a conical tooth washer go over the top holder 00:12:29 towards the front. We don't need a spacer plate here because it is a smaller hole. We'll install our not, get it tight. We can repeat the process on the other side. On our forward rail, slide this U-spacer in and the conical tooth washer and our nut. With that done, we can start tightening our bolts down and then torque and inspect. We'll start in the center and work out way out. For some of the bolts, you'll have to get started with a ratcheting wrench or a very short socket. But a ratcheting wrench works the best. Now that we've started tightening all the bolts, we're are torquing down the manufacturers' specification all the vertical bolts coming from the top of the bed first starting from the center working our way out. Then we'll do the horizontal bolts that hold the frame brackets in. Now with every bolt torqued down to specification, we will work on re-installing, as best we can the brake lines and wires into their frame pockets. With the help of an assistant, we will reinstall the exhaust tail pipe. Now that we have the exhaust pipe slid back into the muffler section, we will lubricate our hanger again and we will reinstall our hanger. You might need to use a pry bar while doing this. You take it all the way off, it's easier to reinstall, just make sure you line up all 3 holes like so. Now that we have our hanger back on, we can tighten down our clamp that holds the tailpipe section to the muffler using our 15 millimeter socket again. We can reinstall our spare tire heat shield sliding this hole here over this stud, swing it up into position . Once you have the nut started on the stud, we can reinstall the other bolts. Now that we are buttoned up underneath with everything, the last thing we need to do is put our spare tire back up. That completes the installation of the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches, part number RP50054-58 on our 2016 Ram 2500.

Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - RP50054-58

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (53 Customer Reviews)

Custom brackets reduce the amount of drilling and time required to install your fifth-wheel trailer hitch. Brackets, base rails, and hardware included.

Overall the install went pretty good. I used two 2x2's with stops to hook at the end of the bed to set the proper distance to the rear rail. See image. The only real problem was with the hole location on the right inside of the rear rail. After I drilled it and crawled under the truck I discovered that there was no way to get to the bolt to install the nut because it was under the welded on sway bar bracket. I moved over to the next hole towards the center and drilled another hole and installed a 1/2-13x3 1/2" bolt with nut and washer. This hole came smack dab in the center of the bed support channel under the bed. Perfect! See other image.

Purchased with a Reese Titan 16000 lb hitch. Instructions were clear and easy to follow. Thanks the ETAILER'S videos I installed myself without any issues. There were a few tight squeezes to reach areas, but not too bad.

Custom 5th wheel, rail mounting kit w/rails was short a bag of hardware. It took one phone call and I received what I needed in two days. Customer care was excellent.

This installation kit for my 2014 Ram 2500 and Reese hitch worked perfectly. I installed it myself without a single problem. Couldn't be happier with the quality and the instructions were pretty easy to decipher. I had this installed in about 4 hours by myself.

A year later and everything is still perfect just like the day I bought it. Ive been pulling a 5th wheel since i installed this kit with nothing but confidence.

The brackets are made well and feel very high quality. Install was pretty easy and straight forward but I think the instructions are not totally accurate for my truck. On my 2020 Ram 2500 gas truck one of the bolts I had to drill ended up right on top on an exhaust hanger mount. I triple checked the measurements too. I got it to work but could not get it as tight as I wanted and definitely can’t get a torque wrench on it. Only an open end wrench would fit. Overall though I do recommend this mounting system for the bed rails.

2017 Ram 2500

Arrived on time. Everything was in the box and in great shape. Instruction along with you tube made the job easier. Thanks to friends with big barns to get out of the Michigan weather.
Will continue to purchase through Etrailer Corporation again. Great prices and Customer Support.


Comments
Fantastic I installed it with a friend which was needed. I measured three times and drilled once. It turned out perfectly because when I was done I []ped in my hitch and it fell in without any forcing involved. Just a note I purchased the Reese hitch from a friend and didnt have it with me at the time of my installation of the rails. So it was a huge relief to see it fit perfectly. The quality of the product also played a big part of the install.

the RP50054-58 brackets fit my 2014 Ram 2500 perfectly. I installed them myself for a 1999 Reese 22K Hitch in about 4 hours. no issues at all.
you may want to watch this youtube video that is a step by step install on a 2016 Ram 2500. It REALLY helped!!

the name of the video is-

by:

I installed this kit myself with the instructions that came with the kit. The instructions were very easy to understand and the kit was fairly easy to install on my truck. The rails worked perfectly with my fifth wheel hitch.




by:
2020 Ram 2500

The product arrived quickly and was of high quality. I had watched the video and pre-read the instructions. The video spent quite a bit of time discussing the heat shield being in the way....sure. But, made no mention of the bracket going in next to the gas tank! That 4th bracket kicked my butt :o It is all in and fit great! Thanks!!!




by:

This product worked great but the install is a bit of a pain. The installation video kind of skipped over the part about mounting the drivers side forward bracket to the frame. This bracket mounts in a blind tight spot between the fuel tank and frame rail. Once moving the wiring harness and cleaning the bolt holes the install went ok but you need some long ratchets and extensions and long skinny arms. If you’re not very comfortable in your ability, have someone else install it for you.




by:

Package showed up yesterday as scheduled. I watched the video and read the instructions prior to starting. Installed it this morning without any issues. took about 2 1/2hours including a trip back inside to review the video. great product with easy to understand directions. Only suggestion is before you start get rid of all the paper instructions which are not applicable. Great product and service. Thanks




by:

Install wasn't too bad. Only gave it 3 stars because the slots for the 5th wheel or gooseneck hitch are a little sloppy. sure it makes it easier to install or remove the hitch, but the little jerks of the hitch moving when taking off from a stop or slowing down too fast are annoying. Guess I shouldn't have gotten the spacing perfect and I wouldn't have the issue.




by:

It is always a nerve racking prospect to drill holes in the bed of your truck. So follow the old rule of measure twice cut (drill) once, but up the formula to - read the instructions twice, measure twice (even three times) and drill once. But drill slowly and smoothly. I had trouble getting the spacers into the corrugation areas because I rammed the drill thru a bit fast and left lots of rough metal edges which prevented the spacers from slipping into place. Installation is relatively straight forward per instructions. Watching the etrailer install video helps as well.




by:

Although I have not installed the product yet, it appears well made and the instructions are easy to understand. Ordering was simple and quick shipping. Very happy with the purchase.




by:

Very Happy with fifth wheel kit. Much heavier duty than expected. Easy to installed, but time consuming. Two men makes it go alot faster. Tried it out with my camper, great! Service excellent. Over and above what I expected! Thanks for quick shipping. DP




by:

The rails and frame mounts worked like they should. The left front rail bracket was a little hard installing being the fuel tank was real close. If I were to do it again I would order the outboard frame mount kit.




by:
2017 Ram 2500

The kit had ample hardware... one hole had to be enlarged for fitment.... working around the diesel fuel tank was a bit challenging.... but overall a good, straightforward kit.




by:

I am very pleased with this item. Item arrived in just a few days with free shipping. Instructions were included. Pay attention to instruction. Comes with two versions based on rails. Self install with two people went smooth.....




by:
2019 Ram 2500

Delivery on Time I will get a review about installation when I finish.thanks




by:
2015 Dodge Ram Pickup

Took a little longer to install than expected but not having a lift didn't help. Overall fit my 2015 RAM 2500 Larmie 8ft box great.




by:

This product bolted up easily without any problems took approximately two hours would highly recommend this kit save the money and do it yourself




by:
2014 Dodge Ram Pickup

Get me fully informed to where my package was. Also improved on the lead time of the brackets. Excellent company to work with.

  • Rail Placement for 5th Wheel Install Kit RP50054-58 for a 2015 Ram 2500
    I can help you out with this installation. For 5th wheel install kit # RP50054-58 measure from the rear edge of the truck bed forward 28-3/16 inches for a long bed or 26-1/4 inches for a short bed. This is where the back edge of the rear rail will be. Once the rear rail is in place the front rail will be 22 inches forward of the rear rail. This is measured from the center of the rear rail to the center of the front rail. But I would leave things a little loose until you have the hitch...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2019 Ram 2500
    A few years back Dodge decided to start referring to their trucks as just "Ram" so in your case you'd need to look up a 2019 Ram 2500 which we have fits for and I attached a link to see them all. I personally wasn't a fan of the change in branding. For a fifth wheel rail kit that fits your 2019 Ram 2500 I recommend the Reese kit part # RP50054-58 which is custom fit for your truck. This means a shorter install time and minimal drilling.

  • Would Fifth Wheel Rail Kit from 2017 Ram 1500 Also Work on 2019 Ram 2500
    A 2017 Ram 1500 and a 2019 Ram 2500 is quite a bit different so a rail kit from one truck would not fit the other. So what you'd need for the 2019 Ram is the part # RP50054-58 which will work great with your Pro Series fifth wheel hitch. This is a custom fit hitch which means drilling would be minimized.

    The Reese # RP50054 is a confirmed fit for the 2020 Ram 2500. The kit that includes the Reese bed rails is part # RP50054-58. You wouldn't want to mix manufacturers of rails and the brackets, as their weight capacity is tested as a unit.
