Base Rail Mounting Location For B&W Base Rails on 2012 Ford F-250 For Patriot Slider

Question:

I have a bandw patriot 18k slider hitch that I am looking to install in my 2012 f250. But cant seem to find any measurements on where to bolt my rails. Would you happen to have an overhead view of the rail location?

Expert Reply:

We do have an overhead view from the instructions for your 2012 Ford F-250 of the base rails so you can mount your B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Slider # BWRVK3270.

The correct B&W base rail and install kit for your Ford F-250 is the B&W Custom Installation Kit with Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2401.

For this kit, if you take a look at the cut out I added from the instructions, you can see the overhead view that is available; you will need to measure 32-5/8 inches from the bed for the edge of the rail. I have linked these installation instructions for you below if you'd like to take a look.

The only other thing I wanted to mention is that if your '12 F-250 does not have a 5th wheel wiring harness, the correct one is the 5th Wheel/Gooseneck 90-Degree Wiring Harness # 50-97-410.
