5th Wheel Installation Kit for a 1999 Ford F-350 and RBW Lil Rocker 5th Wheel Hitch


I have A 1999 f350 ford diesel. I have a RBW lil rocker 15 k with the rails but no underbed brackets or hardware. Will the Reese RP50140 work or are special brackets required for the ford. Will any drilling be required.


Expert Reply:

Brackets # RP50140 and full kit # RP50140-58 are for certain Ram trucks but we do have fantastic options for your 1999 Ford F-350 though. You can use Reese kit # RP50082-58. This is a custom kit and no drilling into the truck frame is required for installation.

You will need to use the full kit unless the rails you have are 10-bolt Reese rails (with mounting holes on the side flanges). This is because there is no guarantee that rails from one manufacturer will fit properly with brackets from a different manufacturer. Also the parts have not been tested together making the capacity unknown.

The rails in kit # RP50082-58 are compatible with the RBW Lil' Rocker 5th wheel hitch. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you.
