Best 5th Wheel Hitch and Toolbox for a 2018 Ram 2500 with 6-1/2 Foot Bed and Factory Prep Package


I am looking to buy a Ram 2500 with a 6ft bed. It has the 5th wheel goose neck prep group. I want to put a 5th hitch in it, but also need a tool box. What do you recommend?


Expert Reply:

The best 5th wheel hitch we have for a 2018 Ram 2500 with the 6-1/2' bed an factory prep package is the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # BWRVK3670. The B&W Companion is considered to be one of the best in-bed hitches on the market. The 20,000 lb capacity and dual locking jaws make it a favorite among consumers. You can check out some more of its features in the review video I have attached for you.

For a tool box I recommend using a crossover style box like the DeeZee Red Label Truck Bed Toolbox part # DZ8170 which is made of a rustproof aluminum, has a locking lid, and is weather resistant. The toolbox should fit in front of your 5th wheel hitch up against the cab but in order to be sure you will want to measure from the farthest point of the hitch forward to the back of the bed. As long as this distance is more than 20" then this toolbox will work well for you.
