Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for 2012 Ram 3500 Short Bed


What hitch do you recommend. Truck is a 2012 Ram mega cab 3500 dually and I m pulling a 20,000 lb 5th wheel Hitchhiker! Truck bed is 6ft 3in.

For your 2012 Ram 3500 short bed my favorite hitch to recommend is the Demco Hijacker Autoslide part # DM8550035 as it has a 21k capacity and will slide automatically as you make tight turns to give you the turning clearance you need.

To install it in your 2012 Ram 3500 what you need is a custom install rail kit like the part # DM8552015-71 which has been confirmed as a fit. Custom install kits are the way to go as they allow you to install the kit easier with drilling minimized.
