Fifth Wheel Install Rail/Bracket Kit for 2012 Dodge Ram 1500


I have a Curt slide 5th wheel hitch. I need rails and brackets for 2012 Ram 1500. The bed is 6 feet 4 inches. Thanks

If you have a Curt sliding fifth wheel hitch like the # C16536, I'd recommend the Curt # C16306-204 which is a semi-custom kit that would require drilling into the truck frame. To shave approximately 1 hour off that install process, Reese offers the # RP50142-58 which doesn't require drilling into the truck frame. Either kit provides industry standard bed rails, which are compatible with your Curt hitch.

If you don't already have a 7-way trailer connector installed in your truck bed, you can install one using part # 50-97-410. I've linked to the installation instructions for both bracket kits, as well as an install video featuring the 7-way harness.
