Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch And Suspension Enhancement For A 2019 Ram 3500 With Factory Prep Package


We bought a Forest River Explore Vengeance 320A-DSO to pull with our 2019 Ram 3500 with short bed. We have the pucks in back. We need a hitch up to the job and also something to help with the sag in the Ram. What is the best solution to both concerns in your line up of products?

Congratulations on your new purchase! Sounds like you have a lot of fun experiences in your future.

As far as the best option in our fifth wheel hitch lineup, in my opinion the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # BWRVK3670 fits the bill. It's solid steel construction including 1" thick jaws providing 360-degree king pin contact means a more worry-free towing experience with less chucking than you get with other hitch options. It easily installs in the factory pucks and more importantly, provides you a clear bed when needed by quickly removing when you don't need it.

The slider feature is really essential to your setup too as the shortbed of your 2019 Ram 3500 could be at risk of cab to trailer contact when backing up without either a sliding hitch or Sidewinder pinbox solution. The Companion provides a full 12" of travel to help alleviate this concern.

The Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Plus Air Springs w/ Internal Bumpers # AL89231 for your rear axle is a great solution for the vehicle sag you mentioned. Air bags reduce the strain on your rear suspension, increase safety, and compensate for uneven loads. Their ability to be adjusted make them superior to Timbren systems that can provide a rigid ride that can't be changed once installed.
