Recommended Gooseneck Hitch For 2005 Dodge Ram 2500

Question:

I have a 2005 ram 2500, bought it used. It already has fifth wheel rails but they are front to back style. Is there a gooseneck hitch to fit this style rails? Thanx

For your 2005 Ram 2500, I recommend the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit - 30,000 lbs, # BWGNRK1313. This is a custom fit for your truck that will give you a gooseneck hitch that will keep your truck bed clean when not in use.

If you want 5th wheel rails, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50140-58. This is a custom fit system for your truck. If you want a gooseneck adapter compatible with these rails, I recommend the Pro Series 25K Gooseneck Plate for Fifth Wheel Rails by Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch and Reese # 49080. This will give you a gooseneck ball on top of 5th wheel rails.

The picture you sent didn't show me any 5th wheel rails that are factory or aftermarket. I am not aware of any 5th wheel rails that run front to back as you mentioned. It looks like this is a custom design that I wouldn't recommend.

The Demco Hijacker SL Series Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for 5th Wheel Rails - 25,000 lbs, # DM5992 is compatible only with the specific Base Rails for Demco Hijacker SL Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # DM6012.

If those are the rails in your truck, the this gooseneck is a confirmed fit. If you want those rails, the bracket and rail combination you will want for your truck is # DM8553007-12.
