Curt Slider R24 Slider Base Placement Dimensions To Base Rails

Question:

Can you provide the envelope dimension/distance between the rear slider/rail mounting point and the rear most part of the slider. I have a 20inch wide fifth wheel tool box that mounts at the tailgate and I want to insure there wont be interference between the slider and tool box before ordering. The attached photo shows the tool box in a 2006 shortbed Ram 3500. The slider hitch and toolbox will be mounted in a new 2022 shortbed Ram 3500.

The rear portion of the Curt Q25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R24 Slider # C16566 slider base is going to sit just past the center of the rear base rail. The front of the slider base, which could possibly interfere with the toolbox is going to sit roughly 7-1/2" past the center of the front base rail.

Rear Base Rail = Towards the cab of the truck.
Front Base Rail = Towards the tailgate of the truck.

I've attached some photos below to help show these dimensions as well.
