Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch and Suspension Enhancement Recommendations for 2019 RAM 3500


I need an automatic sliding hitch like the Hijacker for my 2019 Ram 3500 w/ the 4 round hitch mounts in the truck bed. I also need something to help handle the pin weight of my fifth wheel so the rear of the truck doesn't squat. What hitch and suspension product do I need?


Expert Reply:

We do indeed carry the Demco Hijacker Autoslide, # DM8550034 in an 18K or # DM8550035 in a 21K capacity. You'll also need the # DM6099 adapter to join the hitch to the pucks.

With the Hijacker Autoslide, you'll never have to exit the truck cab in the rain or cold to release the sliding mechanism so it'll slide rearward. This hitch does it automatically.

I'd recommend the Air Lift # AL57531 LoadLifter 7500XL, which will do an excellent job of handling the pin weight of your fifth wheel or any load you wish to carry in the truck bed. A compressor system like # AL25856 is recommended, which will allow you to add or remove air pressure from the system with a press of a button from the cab of the truck.

I've linked you to some product install and description videos that you might find helpful.
