Fifth Wheel Installation Brackets Part # RP50065 for 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Minus the Bed Rails


I need just the quick-install brackets for my 2006 dodge ram 2500 heavy duty short bed. I was wondering if I could use # 50040 or if because it is a heavy duty I would need special brackets. I will be towing 16000# max.

For the 2006 Ram 2500, part # RP50040 includes the frame mounting brackets and hardware only. Its the same brackets included with part RP-50040-58 minus the bed mounted rails that the hitch itself attaches to. This kit will not work on your truck if it has overload springs or is a Mega Cab model.

If your truck does have overload springs or is a Mega Cab model then you will need the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit, item # RP50140, or if the kit and rails are needed, item # RP50140-58.
