Expert Reply:

We do not carry the Pullrite SuperGlide hitch but the 2900 series will fit in industry standard rails which we do carry. For your 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 short bed the placement of the rails is going to depend on the kit used.

For a custom installation kit you can use # C16420-204. From the rear edge of the truck bed (not the tailgate) measure forward 26-3/8 inches. This is where the back edge of the rear rail will be. Then you would use the hitch to position the front rail.

For a semi-custom kit that will require more drilling you can use # RP30035-186. With it the measurement to the back of the rear rail is 26-5/16 inches. Close but not exactly the same as the Curt custom kit.

If you have the Pullrite custom kit 2736 the measurement is 27 inches. For the Pullrite universal kit it is 26-1/8 inches but their universal kit does NOT fit if the truck has overload springs.
