Yes, you can use the same 5th wheel hitch but you will need a different installation kit for the new truck. For your new 2013 Dodge Ram 3500 long bed you can use Curt installation kit # C16430-204. This installation kit will accept the Husky 5th wheel trailer hitch as long as it fits in above the bed rails. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you.

If you do not have a Husky hitch (you mentioned hushly but I was not sure if that was Husky or Hensley) then you will need to measure the feet of the hitch to determine if it will fit the above the bed rails in the installation kit. The Curt rails have 3 sets of mounting slots to accepts tabs on the feet of a hitch.

The slots are about 22 inches apart on center front to back. The outer most set of slots is 29 inches apart on center, side to side. The next set in is 20-1/2 inches apart, and the last set is 10 inches apart. I have included a picture showing the exact dimensions for you.
