5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit for a 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 with Firestone Air Bags


reese kit for 16k 5th wheel 2500 dodge diesel no overloads but I have firestone air bags I assume the 30035 is correct.. would the 30035-186 have any advantages? also the correct bed to rail dimension short bed crew 26-5/16


Expert Reply:

If you are using Firestone Ride-Rite kit # F2299 then the brackets install on the insides of the frame rails. You will need a 5th wheel installation kit that has brackets that install on the outside of the frame rails and that will be kit # RP30035-023. I have included links to the installation instructions for you to view.

On a short bed from the rear edge of the bed to the rear edge of the rear rail will measure 26-5/16 inches. The center of the hitch jaws will be centered over the rear axle.

The other installation kits have brackets that install on the inside of the frame rails so they could interfere with the Firestone brackets.
