Fifth Wheel Hitch For A 2006 Dodge 2500 Mega Cab With A 6-1/2ft Bed


I have a 06 Dodge 2500 mega cab short bed and I need help with getting/ choosing the right 5th wheel hitch and parts to go with it. I’m going to be getting a xlr boost 32rzr14 so the hitch weight is 2226lbs. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

For your 2006 Dodge 2500 Mega Cab with the 6-1/2' truck bed I recommend the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider - Single Jaw - Above Bed - 21,000 lbs Item # DM8550035 with the Demco Hijacker Premier Series Above-Bed Base Rails and Semi-Custom Install Kit for 5th Wheel Hitches Item # DM8552015-71.

Because you have a short bed truck we always recommend a slider. Having a slider provides the room needed between the cab and nose of the trailer when turning sharp corners. The auto slide adjust automatically, with up to 14" of travel when you turn, to provide the clearance needed unlike other sliding hitches that require a lever be pulled in order to move the trailer back farther away from the cab.
