Fifth Wheel Hitch Installation Kit Recommendation for a 2002 Ford F-250 Super Duty with 6-1/2 ft Bed


I have a number 30047 5th wheel hitch made in 2005. It has a slider unit on it. I am looking for the right installation/rail kit for a 2002 ford F250 super duty with 6.5 ft. box.


Expert Reply:

You can use the Installation Kit and Rails, part # 50043-6008, that you referenced in your 2002 Ford F-250 Super Duty with the 6-1/2 ft bed. These rails will work with your Reese 30047 fifth wheel hitch with slider.

This custom installation kit will reduce the installation time by 50 percent from a universal kit and includes all hardware needed for installation. One hole will need to be enlarged in the vehicle frame for the installation of this kit.

If you did not want to enlarge a hole in your vehicles frame, then you could also take a look at the Custom Installation Kit, # RP50082-58. This kit does not require any drilling into the vehicle frame and still saves you time with the installation with the custom brackets designed specifically for your truck. This kit will also work well with your fifth wheel hitch.

I have attached an installation video for a custom fifth wheel installation kit for you to check out. The truck in the video is different from yours, but the installation process will be the same.
