Recommended Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for 2017 Ram 3500 Dually Mega Cab with Factory Pucks


I have a 2017 Ram 3500 Dually Mega Cab with puck towing package. What would be a good sliding hitch to purchase... I dont know where to start between brands or set ups for this truck. Ive seen the Pullrite 24K and the Demco 21K but dont know which to choose! Please help.

For your 2017 Ram 3500 dually that has the 6-foot bed and factory rail kit my best recommendation for a sliding hitch is the 20K-rated B&W Companion # BWRVK3670.

The build quality of B&W hitches is unmatched and over 300 of our customers that have selected this hitch have rated it with almost a perfect score! The Companion drops right into your pucks - no adapters required - and it offers 12-inches of slider travel, a double-pivoting head for easier hitching and a double jaw system for excellent king pin contact with minimal chucking. Add the limited lifetime warranty and this USA-made hitch really stands out. Please have a look at the two linked videos for more on the Companion. If you need an in-bed wiring harness you can use # PK11893-11932.

The 21K-rated Demco Hijacker # DM8550035 offers more slider travel - 14-inches - but installation will also require their Rail Adapter Kit # DM6099. This auto-slide hitch will not require you to exit the cab and manually release the slider. Any time that your truck turns more than 10 to 15 degrees, the Hijacker will ensure that there is enough clearance for your trailer to complete the turn and it will do so without any jerking or binding. This hitch carries a 5-year limited warranty.

We do not carry the PullRite brand but the Demco Hijacker Autoslide hitch offers an excellent alternative if this particular feature is required. All hitches for your truck are shown on the linked page.
