Can Reese 5th Wheel Mounting Rails Be Used With B&W Frame Brackets


Can I mount my existing Reese above bed rails, removed from a different truck, using the BWRVK2600 mounting kit?


Expert Reply:

It's perfectly acceptable to mix and match the hitch from one manufacturer with the install bracket/rail kit from another manufacturer but you DO NOT want to mix frame brackets and bed rails from different manufacturers. The bracket and rails are tested together for weight capacity but if you mix brackets from one manufacturer and rails from another, you can end up with an unknown capacity because the parts weren't tested together.

You'd be better off using the rails included with the # BWRVK2600 kit, they'll work perfectly with your ISR compatible hitch.
