The best option for a 5th wheel hitch that fits the factory puck system of your 2022 Ram 3500 long bed so you can replace your Reese Elite is another Reese hitch, the M5. There are two capacities of the M5 so the right one will just depend on how heavy a trailer you are towing:

- 20,000 lb Capacity: Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package # RP30918

- 27,000 lb Capacity: Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package # RP37FR

The M5 has what is called a Talon jaw system that is very similar to the one on the Elite, which is what makes for such a good towing experience. It is a single-piece, self-latching jaw that makes complete contact with the king pin to give you the stable, comfortable towing experience you are used to with the Elite.

The Reese M5 also has a handy color indicator system at its handle which will turn from red to green to let you know if the jaws on the hitch are locked around the king pin, taking any guesswork out of the equation, which is a really nice convenience feature.
