Curt Fifth Wheel Hitch Install Kit for 2012 Dodge Ram 3500 4x4 with 6 Foot Bed

Expert Reply:

For a 2012 Ram 3500, assuming the hitch you're wanting to use is compatible with industry standard bed rails, I'd recommend the Curt # C16420-204.

The bed rails included with with the kit use industry-standard hole spacing, and would be compatible with Curt, Draw-Tite, Reese, Demco, the B&W Patriot and Valley fifth wheel hitches.

For a short bed truck, we recommend using a sliding 5th wheel hitch to allow proper clearance between the rear of the cab and the front of the fifth wheel during sharp low speed turns. The Curt A20, part # C16541 would be an excellent choice. The hitch features an interlocking jaw that holds the king pin very tightly to prevent it from moving around in the hitch and the hitch head is dampened to help provide some cushioning.

If you'd care to install a 7-way trailer connector in the truck bed so you won't need to run the trailer connector cable up over the tailgate, you can install one using part # 20110.

I've linked to some install/demonstration videos that you might find helpful.
