This fitment was great on my 05 dodge 2500. Easy install and great customer service. Installation description was perfect couple tight spots with rear brackets touches exhaust on passenger side and driver side little hard with top shock mount nut is in the way but nothing to hard. Recommend this product super heavy duty and sturdy. Ready to pull my 5th wheel this weekend. Also i used my reese pro series head unit with it.




by:

Prompt service and a knowledgeable, courteous sales staff.

Solid, top quality product with clear and accurate installation instructions.

A pleasure to do business with!




by:

Installed very well and easy with the included instructions!




by:

Excellent product. Very simple to use. I camp most times without my husband, so it is important that the hitch is easy to use for me and my camping partner (sister).

It has done very well. If ever I need another, I would get the same the Hitch is easy to operate and the rails hold tight. Great Product I think




by:

Awesome product from a reliable company. Thanks!




by:

Delivery was fast and packaging good for being this heavy, the box was not broken. Installation went off with no problems. Fit and instructions were great. Solid platform for my 16K hitch. Have pulled my camper on 5 trips with no problems.




by:
2003 Dodge Ram Pickup

Solid item. Bolt placement on a 2003 ram 3500 could be better thought out. Left with restricted access to rail mounting bolts due to shocks, and brackets for lead springs.




by:

I love this unit on my megacab ram 2500 because it gives you the extra room in the back to hook up and turn sharp on top of an easy install.




by:

Much faster delivery than I expected. Now to install.




by:
2004 Dodge Ram Pickup

Decent price, nice piece of equipment




by:
2005 Dodge Ram Pickup

Second kit. Will definitely do more business with you. Fast shipping. Thank you




by:

Excellent hitch. It releases easily every time even if there is a pin load forward of back.




by:

The packaging was great, no holes or tears in the box that would let parts fall out. Item fit great & well made.

  • Can Reese 5th Wheel Mounting Rails Be Used With B&W Frame Brackets
    It's perfectly acceptable to mix and match the hitch from one manufacturer with the install bracket/rail kit from another manufacturer but you DO NOT want to mix frame brackets and bed rails from different manufacturers. The bracket and rails are tested together for weight capacity but if you mix brackets from one manufacturer and rails from another, you can end up with an unknown capacity because the parts weren't tested together. You'd be better off using the rails included with the...

  • Can You Tow with the B&W Patriot Slider Slide Back On a 2007 Dodge Ram 2500
    The B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # BWRVK3270 should only be slid back for making tight turns, not while traveling. The normal towing position would be with the center section closest to the cab whereas the extended position for making tight turns would be with the center section slid back furthest away from the cab and should only be used while maneuver in tight spaces. The center section would not need to be slid back while traveling as you would rarely be making turns sharp...

  • Recommended Rails And 5th Wheel Hitch For A 2005 Dodge Ram 3500 With An 8' Bed
    It sounds to me like you have one of the older Demco rails which have been discontinued. You'll have to replace the rails to be able to have a hitch fit on them. I recommend the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3200 with the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2600. B&W is known for quality and that's exactly what you'll get with the B&W Patriot. It has a rounded 2-piece jaw on which inhibits rattle and movement by securely wrapping...

  • Installation of B&W Base Rails on 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 with a 6 Foot 3 Inch Bed
    If I follow correctly, you have a 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 with a 6 foot 3 inch box. Our site shows "6-1/2 Foot Bed" and you are concerned about installing the B&W Base Rails, # BWRVK2600. Yes, these install the same as the long bed, 8 foot bed trucks and our site's text simply adjusts most all listing to 6-1/2 Foot Bed for most any short bed (excluding the new super short 5 foot beds) or 8 foot beds for long bed trucks. Even though some manufacturers are making long beds at 8 foot 2 inches....

  • Will B&W 5th Wheel Rail Kit Fit a Pullrite Superglide 2700 and 2012 Ram 2500 Mega Cab
    Since your Pullrite Superglide 2700 is one of the ISR models it will fit on the B&W installation kit # BWRVK2600 which does feature industry standard rails. And the rail kit is a fit for your 2012 Ram 2500 Mega Cab. So you will be good to go! I also recommend installing a 7-Way trailer connector in the bed of the truck using # 41157. It will tee into the factory 7-Way at the back of the truck. Having a 7-Way in the truck bed makes it easier to connect a 5th wheel or gooseneck trailer....

  • Recommended Custom 5th Wheel Installation Kit for 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 with 6-1/2 Foot Bed
    I have a solution for you, but the B&W Custom Mounting Bracket # BWRVR2401 are not a fit on the 2007 Dodge Ram 2500. Instead, the correct B&W Rail kit for your 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 with 6-1/2 Foot Bed- excluding the Mega Cab is the # BWRVK2600 - which is a custom kit designed for your specific truck.

  • B&W Custom Install Kit for Patriot 5th Wheel Hitch on 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 Long Bed
    I'm assuming you already have the # BWRVK3270? If not, it's not necessary to use a sliding hitch in a long bed truck. I'd recommend using the stationary version, part # BWRVK3255 for an 18K capacity or # BWRVK3200 for the 16K hitch. If you already have the hitch, you can certainly still install it in your 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 using the # BWRVK2600 custom install kit, but you'll want to be sure to keep the slider in the forward-most position at all times. The install bracket/rail kit will...

  • Recommended Components for Installing the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Hitch in a 2004 Dodge Ram 2500
    For your 2004 Dodge Ram 2500, the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # BWRVK3200, and B&W Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit, # BWRVK2600, work well with an 8 foot bed. The installation kit brackets will install under the bed and mount to existing holes already in your Ram's frame. If you have a 6 foot or less bed on your truck, then it is recommended that a slider 5th wheel hitch be used to gain the correct amount of clearance between the cab of your truck and the front of your...

  • Custom 5th Wheel Base Rail Kit for 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 with 6-1/2 Foot Bed and Mega Cab
    I have a solution for you, but the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2600 will not fit on the Mega Cab versions of the 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 with overload springs. Instead, you'll want to use the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Installation Rails # C16420-204 which are confirmed to fit on the 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 with both the Mega Cab and overload springs. This kit will provide you with base rails for your truck bed that will allow you to install a 5th wheel...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Base Rails and Installation Kit for 2012 Ram 2500
    The 5th wheel base rails and installation kit I recommend for your 2012 Ram 2500 is the B&W Custom Installation Kit with Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2600. This kit will work with your Husky 7054 hitch and is the best option because it is a custom installation kit, which means it does not require any drilling into your Ram's frame rails to install. This is not only great for your truck but also means the installation is going to be simpler and take much less time than...

  • Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for Valley 7054 5th Wheel Hitch 2006 Dodge Ram Pickup
    For your Valley 7054 5th Wheel Hitch you will simply need to install a set of ISR base rails. I recommend using a custom fit base rail kit on your 2006 Ram 2500 such as the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches, # BWRVK2600. The advantage of using a custom-fit bracket kit is that it mounts to existing holes in your vehicle's frame. This minimizes drilling and measuring which reduces installation time and most importantly it avoids known obstacles along...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch and Install Kit for 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 Towing 17.5K 5th Wheel
    I recommend the B&W Patriot for your 2008 Dodge Ram 2500. It has an 18,000 pound capacity so is enough for your trailer. It features 3/4 inch dual jaws with gives you great contact between them and the king pin. This helps improve your ride by reducing chucking and jarring between the trailer and your Ram. The Patriot installs into industry standard rails, like part # BWRVK2600. If you don't already have a 7-way trailer connector installed in the bed of your truck, you can install...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For A Camper W/GVWR 14,100 lbs With Hitch Weight Of 2,100 lbs
    I would recommend choosing a fifth wheel hitch with your future needs in mind. Fifth wheel trailer hitches have weight ratings that need to be more than the fully loaded trailer being towed. Towing a trailer that is heavier than what the hitch is rated for is not safe. There is nothing wrong with having a hitch that is overrated, especially if you might be towing a heavier trailer in the future. Like you mentioned, you will need a slider for your 2012 Dodge Ram pickup. If you think...

  • Will the B&W Patriot Offer Pin Box Clearance When Used On a 2009 Dodge Ram 3500
    The B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # BWRVK3270 is going to be an excellent option to tow a fifth wheel trailer when used with the B&W Custom Installation Kit with Base Rails part # BWRVK2600 which is a fit for a 2009 Dodge Ram 3500. In regards to clearance, the hitch head height is adjustable from 17" - 19" which should be plenty to give you the recommended 4" - 6" from the bed side to the loft. If you have the recommended clearance then you won't have issues with hitting the...

  • Rail Kit for B&W 5th Wheel Hitch and the 2005 Dodge Ram 3500
    The B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Dual Jaws at 18,000 lbs. # BWRVK3255, is a great choice. Assuming that your current hitch is mounted to industry-standard, above-bed base rails, this will attach right to your existing rails without issue. Otherwise you will need either the B&W Semi-Custom 5th Wheel Installation Kit for Dodge Ram, # BWRVR3202-00 or B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails, # BWRVK2600. I recommend going with the Custom option # BWRVK2600 since it will be a...

    If you already have the B&W Custom Mounting Brackets # BWRVR2600 and all of the hardware for your 2010 Ram 2500 then the B&W Universal Base Rails you need are part # BWRVR3210. These 2 kits makeup the whole custom kit # BWRVK2600 for your pickup. Please note that if you have used hardware it will need to be replaced as well since it is only meant to be torqued to specs once. If you don't already have a 7-Way connector in the bed of your Ram then I also recommend installing the part #...

    Yes, you can install a 5th wheel hitch in a 2012 Ram 2500 with a 6-1/2 Foot Bed and Ram Boxes. However, you can't use a slide type hitch that is typically used in short bed trucks. You will need to use a fixed position hitch, such as the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # BWRVK3200 or # BWRVK3255, using the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches, # BWRVK2600 to mount in truck bed Then have a rotating turret type pin box on your 5th wheel, such as...

  • Is Pullrite Sidewinder Wedge # SWW-09 Compatible with Pullrite SuperGlide 2700 Hitch
    The 5th Airborne Custom Wedge # SWW-09 is not designed to be used with your Pullrite SuperGlide 2700 (or any automatic sliding 5th wheel hitch), so I cannot recommend using it instead of a capture plate. A Pullrite Quick Capture Plate is a required component of your SuperGlide hitch system, and from what I understand, it also has a Capture Wedge integrated into the plate, so that's what you'd need to use. Additionally, Sidewinders cannot be used with the Pullrite SuperGlide hitch. This...

  • Recommended Cost-Effective 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2003 Dodge Ram
    For your application I recommend using the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails # BWRVK2600 which gives you a way to install your 5th wheel hitch in your 2003 Dodge Ram pickup. Then for the actual hitch I recommend the B&W Patriot # BWRVK3270 sliding hitch if you have a short bed but then you can use the Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16115 if you have a long bed. The sliding feature on the Patriot ensures your 5th wheel doesn't hit your cab when making tight turns but the E16...

  • B&W Slide Hitch or 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter For 2011 Ram 2500
    What I think I understand is that you have a 2011 Ram 2500 with, presumably, a short bed and want to know if using a slide type 5th wheel hitch, such as the B&W is better than converting to a gooseneck hitch using one of the Convert-a-Ball options. If the trailer you will be hauling has a typical king pin, fixed pin box, then I suggest the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider, # BWRVK3270 installed in to your 2011 Ram using the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails, # BWRVK2600....

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2012 Ram 2500 Short Bed 4WD
    You will need a sliding type 5th wheel hitch for your 2012 Ram 2500 short bed pickup to give you enough clearance for tight turns with your Palomino 5th wheel. Although your trailer's gross weight is 14K I do suggest a hitch rated for at least 18K to give you a good safety margin. Using a higher-rated hitch also means things will tend to last longer and be more reliable. For an above-bed base rail set-up I really like the B&W Patriot # BWRVK3270 along with its custom-fit rail kit # BWRVK2600...

  • Are Safety Chains Needed With B&W 5th Wheel Rails for 2004 Dodge Ram 2500
    Fifth wheel hitch connections differ from others in that they generally don't require safety chain connections. You can verify that with your local laws, but the connection is considered secure enough that safety chains aren't needed. That doesn't mean you can't use them, of course, but you would have to fashion your own mounts as there is no specific spot to connect safety chains on trucks like your 2004 Dodge Ram when adding 5th wheel base rails like the B&W Custom Installation Kit...
