All of the 5th wheel installation kits like the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Installation Kit for Ford # C16428-204 are going to have similar installations with similar levels of difficulty. The # C16428-204 is confirmed to fit your 2019 Ford F-250 with short bed and will provide you with a set of industry standard rails, which will allow you to use a 5th wheel hitch.

Since you have the short bed, you will need to use either a sliding hitch or rotating pin box to have the proper turning clearance. You can use the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # DM8550035 for an autoslide 5th wheel hitch or the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # BWRVK3270 for a manual option. Either hitch will work with the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Installation Kit for Ford # C16428-204 base rails.

You may also want to pick up the Tow Ready 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Wiring Harness # 20110-010 to make hooking up your 5th wheels wiring easier. The # 20110-010 will move a 7-way into the bed of your truck while retaining use of the 7-way at the rear of your vehicle.
