Parts Needed to Install B&W Patriot Sliding Hitch in 2019 Ram 2500 Short Bed


I have a 2019 ram 2500 Mega cab with the short bed. I would like to purchase the BandW patriot slider 18K but I am unclear as to what other parts I will need. I do not have a factory puck system. Thanks in advance!

In order to use the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider - Dual Jaw - 18,000 lbs # BWRVK3270 you will need to install an above bed rail kit like the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50054-58. These are a custom install kit for your 2019 Ram 2500, so they're designed to minimize and in most cases eliminate any drilling required during installation.

I've linked some review and installation videos of these for you to check out. These will fit on the Mega Cab versions of the 2500 with 6-1/2 Foot bed.
