5th wheel base rail installation for kit # RP50140-58 in your 2005 Ram 2500 with 6-foot bed will have the rear rail's rear edge 26-1/4-inches forward of the edge of the truck bed (the bed, not the tailgate). This is the rear rail placement for both gas and diesel engine trucks.

You can see this in page 5 of the linked instructions. You can also refer to the linked installation video and helpful article on 5th wheel installs.
