Underbed Base Rails and 5th Wheel Hitch for 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty Short Bed


i just bought a new 2019 F350 SRW 6.5 foot box. i do not see the puck system in the bed. it does have 4 bolts in the center area of the bed. does that have anything to do with the puck system? is it worth adding the puck system as an adder? my initial goal was to haul my camper with my short box new truck. i am used to a turnover ball with my camper having a adapter for gooseneck ball, installed into a 8 foot box.

While you cannot add the puck system as an aftermarket option to your 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty, you can add an underbed rail system so you have a clean bed in your truck. I'm not sure what bolts you are referring to, but you would know if your truck came with the factory 5th wheel prep package. For underbed rails and a sliding 5th wheel hitch for your 2019 Ford F-350 you have a pair of options.

- Underbed Rail and Installation Kit for Demco Hijacker # DM8551009 with the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider - 18,000 lbs # DM8550022 or 21,000 lbs # DM8550037


- Custom Underbed Installation Kit for B&W Companion # BWGNRK1116-5W with B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider # BWRVK3400-5W

You mentioned you had the B&W so you know how high-quality the components are and if you were happy with it (as essentially everyone who uses the B&W products is) then you can add this to your truck. The Demco is also a great option, not only because of its high-quality, but because of how convenient it is to have a hitch that slides automatically.

These are going to be the options you can use as a substitute for an underbed puck system in your 2019 F-350 and both will not only get the job done but also give you a comfortable, enjoyable towing experience.

Additionally, if you need a 5th wheel wiring harness the correct part for your 2019 Ford F-350 is the Tow Ready 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Wiring Harness for Aluminum Truck Beds # 20110-010.
