Will Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch Fit B&W Base Rails on 2020 Ram 2500  


New to 5th wheels but is a Demco auto slide universal for b&w rails?


Expert Reply:

Yes, the Demco Hijacker autoslide 5th wheel trailer hitch will absolutely fit B&W base rails on your 2020 Ram 2500. The Hijacker mounts to what are called industry-standard rails, and that's exactly what the B&W base rails are for your '20 Ram 2500. So exactly what you need for your truck is the following:

- Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # DM8550034

- B&W Custom Installation Kit with Base Rails # BWRVK2602

The B&W rails are great because they are a custom fit which means they don't require any drilling into your Ram's frame in order to install. As for the Hijacker, that is a superb choice for a 5th wheel hitch for a number of different reasons, starting with its convenience.

Unlike other sliding fifth wheel hitches, the Hijacker # DM8550034 does not require you to leave your cab just to make a sharp turn, it will simply slide automatically as you make the turn. And while that type of convenience alone makes the Hijacker a great option, the hitch also has an elite, single-piece jaw that encompasses the king pin, and that jaw connection is reinforced via a 3/4" solid steel bar that locks into place once the jaw is closed.

This ensures less slack between the jaw and the trailer's king pin, giving you a quieter, more comfortable ride when you are towing. The only other thing you will need if you don't have one is a 5th wheel wiring harness, with the correct fit for your 2020 Ram 2500 being the Curt 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Custom Wiring Harness # C56070.
