Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendations for 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab Short Bed  


Hello can i put a Curt with slider in my 2013 dodge 1500 crew cab 6 foot box


Expert Reply:

Your best bet for installing a fifth wheel hitch in your 2013 Dodge Ram Crew Cab would be to use the above bed rails offered with the # RP30035-386 install kit. For a hitch, I recommend the # C16541 Curt A20 Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch. The slider will give you 12' of travel, and the fifth wheel head assembly is a very similar design as what's used on the Elite hitch.

Reese doesn't offer an under-bed rail kit that's compatible with your truck. The # RP30074 is compatible with the 2013 2500 series Ram, but not the 1500 series.

To install an in-bed 7-way trailer connector, use part # 41157.
