The Demco Hijacker Custom Rail Kit, part # DM8552011-71, does not require drilling into the frame when installing. It uses existing holes that are already in the frame of your 2016 Chevrolet 2500.

The Demco Hijacker Autoslide, part # DM8550035 will work great in your truck with the 6-1/2 ft bed. This fifth wheel features a single, wraparound jaw that gives you less rattle, and the pivoting head helps to limit chucking. This hitch has a 21,000-lb gross towing weight capacity.

I have attached a link to a product review video for this hitch you can check out.

The fifth wheel wiring I recommend is the Draw-Tite 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Wiring Harness, part # 20110.

This will plug into the factory wiring on your 2500 7-way wiring, and then you can run the 10-ft wiring from the rear bumper to the truck bed. I have attached a link to an installation video you can check out.

When working with electrical connectors I recommend using dielectric grease like part # 11755. This keeps dirt and moisture out of the electrical connections and helps prevent corrosion.
