5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ram 3500 Short-Box with Factory 5th Wheel Rail Kit


2017 Ram 3500 short bed mega cab. standard box not the rambox. I have the factory 5th wheel prep package. which hitch is compatible with my setup?


Expert Reply:

The best slider hitch for your 2017 Ram 3500 short-box that has the factory 5th wheel rail kit is without a doubt the B&W Companion # BWRVK3670.

This 20K-rated hitch drops directly into your factory pucks and its slider gives you a full foot of travel for low-speed maneuvers.

B&W fabricates and assembles their hitches not too far from us, in Humboldt, KS, and their products are renowned for their excellent design and better-than-it-needs-to-be build quality. (B&W actually builds many of their own tools that are used to make their hitches.) For example, the dual king pin jaws on this hitch are beefy, a full 1-inch thick, which gives you 360-degree jaw-to-king-pin contact for rattle-free towing. The round-tube slider will not bind the way square tube sliders can. Add the limited lifetime warranty and its an easy call.

I cannot recommend any other hitch for your truck more highly than this B&W. This and all other options are shown on the linked page.

If you also need an in-bed wiring harness you can use part # PK11893-11932.
