If you have the 6-1/2 foot bed with the Quad Cab or the 5-1/2 foot bed with the Crew Cab, I recommend the same hitch. It is the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit - 30,000 lbs # BWGNRK1309. This is a confirmed fit for your truck and if you have the 6-1/2 foot bed without RamBox it also offers a 5th wheel slider compatibility for a clean bed.

If you want a good hitch but a more economical option, I recommend the Curt # C60730 which is only a fit for the 6-1/2 foot bed option. The B&W # BWGNRK1309 is the only fit for a 5-1/2 foot bed.

You may also want to consider the Hopkins Endurance 5th Wheel/Gooseneck 90-Degree Wiring Harness with 7-Pole Plug # 41157 for easy connection access in the bed of your truck.

Question:

I'm putting air suspension in will this still work

Expert Reply:

Yes, air springs are compatible with your truck and either system. I recommend using the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle # AL57365 for your air suspension enhancement. This kit does require at least 8-1/8 inches between the frame and the jounce bumper strike plate to fit. It comes with the manual inflation valves. If you don't have that clearance, you can still use air springs, but you will use the Air Lift AirLift 1000HD Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs # AL60818HD instead.

You may also be interested in a compressor system like the Air Lift Load Controller Compressor System for Air Helper Springs- Heavy Duty - Single Path # AL25854. This will allow you to adjust the air pressure between 5 and 100 psi. I've attached a video to assist.
