Placing Fifth Wheel Hitch Install Bed Rails in Bed of 2003 Dodge Ram 3500 Long Bed  


What is measurement from rear edge of truck bed to rear rail on fifth wheel install on 2003 3500 ram 8 ft bed?


Expert Reply:

The distance from the rear edge of the truck bed (NOT the tailgate) to the rear edge of the rear bed rail of the Reese # RP50140-58 fifth wheel hitch install kit is 28-1/4 inches. You can find this information on page 4 of the installation instructions, which I've linked for you.

If you need a 7-way trailer connector installed in the truck bed, you can do so using part # HM42137. I've also linked you to install videos for the fifth wheel rails and the in-bed 7-way trailer connector.
