I would be happy to help!

The Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch # DM8550035 and the Pullrite Superglide you were looking at for your 2021 Ram 2500 are similar in the sense that they both offer 14" of rearward travel so that you have additional cab to trailer clearance when making sharp turns and will not need to get out of the truck to unlock then lock the hitch when turning like standard sliding hitches.

With that said there are still some key differences. The Hijacker uses a 3/4" thick bar to secure the king pin connection where the Superglide does not, and the Hijacker has three height settings, 15-1/4", 16-1/2", and 18", where the Superglide has a fixed 16-3/4" height making the Hijacker a bit more versatile to different trailers.

In addition the Hijacker works with standard pin box without needing special capture plates where the Superglide will require capture plates no matter which pin box style is installed on your trailer.

I recommend the # DM8550035 due to these differences.

To get it installed in your truck with the OEM prep package you will need the Demco rail adapter # DM6099.
