Recommended 5th Wheel Rail Kit For Demco Hijacker Autoslide In 2010 Dodge Ram 6-1/2 Foot Bed


Looking to buy the Demco auto slider 21k. I have a 2010 Dodge Ram Crew Cab, short bed 6.5, Cummins 4 x 4. Besides the hitch, is there anything else I would need to buy? My truck is already wired for the electrical part.

For your 2010 Dodge Ram 6-1/2 foot bed Crew Cab truck, the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider - Single Jaw - Above Bed - 21,000 lbs # DM8550035 doesn't need anything additional with the exception of 5th wheel rails. If you already have the 5th wheel rails, you would be all set.

If you need the rails, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50142-58. This rail kit includes the custom brackets that mount to existing holes in your vehicle's frame, the hardware kit, and of course the standard rails. It is a slightly easier install and at a better price than the Demco Rail Kit # DM8552030-71 which is also a cusom install kit.

You mentioned already having the wiring, but if you didn't include the 7-way in the bed of your truck in addition to the bumper, I recommend the Demco 5th Wheel/Gooseneck 90-Degree Wiring Harness with 7-Pole Plug - 10' Long # DM8555002 to give you that easy connection point in the bed of your truck.
