Great product, and excellent support; very happy. It took me a little over 4 hours to install, but if you have a good helper and a lift it could be done in half that time.
The instructions weren’t great, but the YouTube video was extremely helpful, be sure and watch it first.
An impact is highly recommended and some extensions were necessary to reach the driver side front brackets.

2014 Ram 2500

PROS: Brackets and rails fit perfect and look good in the truck. Height of the rails will make it easy use the bed with the 5th Wheel Hitch removed. Used with a Husky 16KS Hitch I transferred from another truck, and it fit the rails perfectly. CONS: The hardware kit I received did not fit my 2014 Ram 2500 Tradesman, the bolts were too large for the factory frame holes, had to buy new hardware to install the brackets underneath. Also, the hardware kit did not include a nut carrier tool required to install the rear passenger side rail bolt that is placed in a very tight location on the truck. I recommend test fitting all the hardware and conducting a full inventory before starting the project to save yourself time and some frustration.


Comments
You mentioned that the hardware did not fit with the factory rail holes and I wanted to see if you could send a picture of those locations.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 07/25/2022
The issue was not the location of any holes, they all lined up like they needed to and the ones we had to drill through the bed were all fine. The issue was the bolts provided to secure the mounting brackets to the existing threaded frame holes in the truck were too large, they wouldnt even begin to thread into the frame. It is possible I received the wrong hardware pack for the truck, the box was previously opened and re-taped when it got here, I do have pictures of that I could provide. If you would be willing to send out a hardware kit for the truck so I could try the bolts in it, I would not argue, a couple of the bolts I ended up using were a little soft threaded and stripped during the torque process, I would be happy to get back under there with the right ones and tighten things up before the next camping trip. Let me know what ya think. I am very happy with the look and function, but the hardware issue cost me a couple hours on the install and excess frustration so I could not give a 5 star review to a good product

I will have our customer service team reach out to you about sending out new hardware.

Super HD rails brackets, the brackets bolt directly to the frame with existing factory nuts.
No cutting or grinding, just some holes to drill. I did all the work on the my Cummins
Dodge 2500 4x4 on the ground with no lift. If you have the right tools and mechanical
Ability, Takes about 5 hours to install. Great fit and extremely strong. Would highly re-
Commend this product.

great product bolt it right up like i taught it would




by:

E trailer shipped with lightening speed as usual no I received my 5th wheel height about 2pm and after watching the videos and reading the step by step instructions we began the huge job. I was amazed and the simple steps involved and before I knew it we were putting tools away and admiring the straightness of the new rails and how every bracket lined up with factory nuts and now I can put a 26k lb 5th wheel. Thanks Etrailer




by:

I think that etrailer is the place to go for anything Trailer!

I hate to hear that rail kit was missing hardware and a bit difficult to install. I will definitely have our customer service team reach out to you.

2016 Ram 2500

It's almost impossible to install the front driver side bracket. The video they attached conveniently left that side out. Plus two long bolts for the rear were missing. Not a huge deal but had to stop and go to the hardware store. Took 5 hours to install.




by:

Driver side front mount has to be altered. Wiring harness pass through the are and will not have clearance for the mount. Had to grind it down about 1/4” to have clearance. Will finish installing today. Hopefully no other issues appear




by:
Dodge Ram Pickup

Everything fit correctly. I had to move one hole in the bed because the nut extention handle was to short for this 2023 Ram. But instruction were very good on everything else. I'm 78 my wife helped me a little I used a tree limb and com-!-long for heavy parts. Very sadisfied.




by:
2018 Ram 2500

Shipping was as expected, product arrived in good condition. Directions were clear and easy to follow. The installation video on etrailer.com was of great help and it was nice tool to have.




by:

The team worked with me to get the missing hardware from the manufacturer. Would reccomend.




by:

Fast delivery and excellent assistance from the product specialist in choosing the right hitch for my rig.

My order came in a timely manner. The order was not complete and was missing the mounting hardware. They made it right sending it over night.




by:

I was on the fence on which tow system to buy. Hands down the BWRVK2602, was no competition We will be setting it up on our 2018 2500 Ram. The package arrived and upon opening saw the fit and finish on all the pieces. A huge help is the video available to show exact steps to get all this mounted. I will be back to get all my brake controller parts. Thanks so much Nick C. for all the help.

Great product, need to do a video on 2019 and up rams. Appreciated the video on the 2018 ram but my instructions were a little different. Hardest part was working between gas tank and frame. Not a lot of room.




by:

After one year, product looks like new. I recently re-torqued all hardware however none was out of spec. I'm pleased with the functionality and durability of this product.




by:

Everything fit my truck the way it was supposed to works real good

Rails and support brackets fit perfectly on my 2018 RAM 2500. Video was spot-on in every detail of what to expect, thus I had no surprises awaiting me during my install. I had it all done in less than 3 hours. Thanx for the great installation video and product.

    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.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Base Rails for a 2018 Dodge 2500
    You can use a sliding 5th hitch in your long bed truck, however you'll need to add a base rail kit for your vehicle. One of the great things about 5th wheel hitches is that they use an industry standard rail and are mostly compatible across brands, so you're likely to have a fit. I recommend using the B&W Custom Install Kit, part # BWRVK2602 as it is compatible with all major 5th wheel hitch brands. This kit uses the existing holes in your frame to install the base rails, and avoids known...

    The front most rail on the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2602 for your 2022 Ram 2500 with the 6'4" bed, should be placed 48-5/16" from the end of the truck bed. Once you've placed the front most rail at the intended location, you're going to need to center the rail in the bed, from left to right. The mounting location shown in the instructions for a 6'6" bed will be the same as your 6'4" bed.

  • 5TH Wheel Rails and Custom Fit Mounting Brackets For a 2020 Ram 2500
    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.

  • Can the Handle on B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2018 Ram 2500 Be Used From Side of Truck
    The B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # BWRVK3270 is an excellent option for a 2018 Ram 2500 when used with the B&W Custom Installation Kit part # BWRVK2602.

  • Is Hitch Height of B and W Patriot Slider Hitch a Major Concern When Towing
    Normally a great deal of height adjustment is not needed with fifth wheel hitches. There are some really well known hitches that don't offer any adjustment at all. The height range of the B and W Patriot part # BWRVK3270 is 17-19 inches which typically is all that's needed. Also you can adjust the height of the pin box on the trailer for further adjustment so additional height adjustment is available. Since you don't have a trailer yet and the fact that height range is pretty rarely an...

  • Slider Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ram 2500 Short Bed that's Easy to Remove Head Off
    As far as slider hitches go the B and W Patriot Slider part # BWRVK3270 would probably be the easiest to remove the head of to make removing it a bit easier. The base will still be pretty heavy but its the only option we have that's going to be easier to take apart to make easier for install/removal. For a rail kit confirmed as a fit for your 2018 Ram 2500 short bed you'd then want the kit part # BWRVK2602 which is a confirmed fit.

    I would highly recommend the B and W Patriot Hitch part # BWRVK3270 that you referenced with the rail kit part # BWRVK2602 that you also referenced over the Curt. There's nothing really wrong with the Curt but the B and W hitch heads are among the nicest hitches around and I know you will be very happy with it.

  • Can Ram Truck with RamBoxes Tow Fifth Wheel Trailer
    The Ram trucks that have the Ramboxes are a bit of a challenge to tow a fifth wheel trailer with the issue is not the height of the bed rails so much as it is the width of the bed rails. Since they are much wider and make the truck bed quite a bit narrower there isn't enough room for the pin box of the fifth wheel trailer to pivot out when making turns. The pin box of the trailer would hit the Ramboxes before a sharp turn could be made which is why the only solution is to install a Sidewinder...

You can still pull your 2022 Jayco Eagle 321RSTS with your 6-1/2' bed but you run the risk of the nose of the 5th wheel coming into contact with the cab of your Ram when making tight turns.
