Will the B&W Patriot Offer Pin Box Clearance When Used On a 2009 Dodge Ram 3500  


Will the pin box come into contact with the tailgate in the maneuver position?

The B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # BWRVK3270 is going to be an excellent option to tow a fifth wheel trailer when used with the B&W Custom Installation Kit with Base Rails part # BWRVK2600 which is a fit for a 2009 Dodge Ram 3500. In regards to clearance, the hitch head height is adjustable from 17" - 19" which should be plenty to give you the recommended 4" - 6" from the bed side to the loft. If you have the recommended clearance then you won't have issues with hitting the tailgate or bedsides. The slider mechanism will then provide clearance when making sharp turns so you should be covered all around.

The only other thing I would add to this already really great setup, is the 5th Wheel/Gooseneck 90-Degree Wiring Harness part # 50-97-410.
