Recommended Custom 5th Wheel Rail Kit for Proper Hitch Placement in 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 Short Bed


2005 Dodge 2500 six ft bed hitch is a pro series 20K


Expert Reply:

For your 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 short bed, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50140-58. This rail kit will ensure your hitch is in the proper position and also utilizes factory holes in your frame so you won't need to do any drilling into your frame. These rails will work with your Pro Series 20K hitch. If your hitch isn't a sliding hitch, then I also recommend the Reese Fifth Wheel Slider w/ Rollers # RP30048 or # RP50024 for proper turning clearance with your short bed truck.

If you already have the rails, then you can use the custom brackets # RP50140 and 10 bolt rail hardware # RP58430 for your installation.
