Easy install.

Good product fit well Heavy Duty got most of the bolts in and torqued took a good amount of time and took it to a mechanic for a couple bolts I didn’t have the tools for, if I did it again I would pay for a shop to put it in, but it’s a well made and good fitting product




by:

Perfect for my needs and installation was a breeze. If these guys sell it you need to seriously consider buying it from them. Customer service, installation and mailer can’t be beat

  • Where to Place Rear Rail of B and W Above Bed 5th Wheel Rail Kit 2021 Ram 2500
    Yes, the correct rear rail edge to rear of truck bed dimension when installing the B and W Rail kit part # BWRVK2605 in your 2021 Ram 3500 is 26-9/16 inches like you mentioned.

  • B and W Patriot Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ram 3500 Short Bed
    While 6-1/2 foot is longer than most truck short beds it's still recommended to go with a slider hitch so that you can make tight turns unless the nose of your trailer is tapered to allow for short bed clearance. So for a slider hitch the B and W Patriot Slider part # BWRVK3270 would be the way to go. Then for a custom rail kit for your 2017 Ram 3500 you'd want the part # BWRVK2605 and you'd be set.

  • Fifth Wheel Towing with 2016 Ram 3500 Equipped with Ram Boxes
    The problem isn't with the hitch fitting, the problems are that the 5th wheel's pin box strikes the sides of the bed during turns. The only way a fifth wheel hitch can be used in a Ram Box equipped truck would be to use a Reese Sidewinder. The sidewinder moves the pivot between the trailer and the hitch from where the king pin and hitch jaws meet to where the pin box attaches to the 5th wheel. This moves the pivot point 22 inches rearward, preventing the pin box from hitting the sides of...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2018 Ram 3500
    My recommendation of a 5th wheel hitch will be dependent on the size of the bed on your 2018 Ram 3500. For a 6-1/2 foot bed I recommend the sliding B&W Patriot # BWRVK3270 or for an 8 foot long bed the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3255. To add base rails to your '18 Ram 3500 you will then use the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2605. Finally, if you need a 5th wheel wiring harness I recommend part # 20110.

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch for 2022 Ram 3500 w/ 8 Foot Bed
    I have a great 5th Wheel Hitch and an installation kit to match it. It is the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 18,000 lbs item # BWRVK3255. B&W makes the best 5th wheel hitches in the business.

  • Can 2022 Ram 3500 with Ram Boxes Tow Fifth Wheel Trailer
    The only way to tow a fifth wheel trailer with a truck that has the Ram Boxes is by using a pivoting pin box like the Sidewinder you mentioned. This is because the pivot point is moved up higher which prevents the pin box from hitting the Ram Boxes around corners. So the problem you have is that the Turnoverball B and W gooseneck hitch and Companion hitches can't be used with Sidewinders since that puts too much torque on the gooseneck ball shaft that the Companion uses for attachment....
