Helpful Expert Reply:

Ideally you would be installing a custom install fifth wheel rail kit for your 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 short bed like the Reese kit part # RP50066-58 which will have a distance of 24-5/8 inches from the rear edge of the rear rail to the rear of the truck bed. To place the front rail you'd use your Reese hitch set in the rear rails so that the hitch fits it exactly.

I attached a picture that shows the rear rail placement as well as an install video for you to check out.
