Expert Reply:

The correct placement will depend on which install kit you are using. I would recommend using a custom kit like the one offered by Reese, part # RP50082-58.

The installation instructions for the # RP50082-58 (see link) state that the rear of the back rail is 32-1/4 inches forward of the rear edge of the bed (not the tailgate). This will place the centerline of the hitch approximately 2-15/16 inches forward of the rear axle centerline. These dimensions can vary if you use a different kit.
