Expert Reply:

To use your Husky 16K 5th Wheel Hitch with your 2009 Dodge Ram, I recommend installing the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails # RP50140-58. This installation kit is custom designed for your truck and will use existing holes in the vehicle frame for attaching the brackets. Custom kits like this one will cut installation time in half when compared to universal bracket systems.

These base rails are compatible with Husky, Valley, Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, and Reese 5th Wheel Hitches. I have included the written installation details along with a video demonstration that you can use for reference.

Also, if you do not have one already, I recommend looking at a 5th Wheel Harness like the Hopkins # HM42137. Once installed, this will provide a 7-Way connector in the bed of your Ram for easy hookup with your trailer.
