Helpful Expert Reply:

The only 5th wheel hitch that we have that is compatible with your 1989 Ford F250 Super Cab 3/4 T 4x4 8 ft. bed with lift springs and uses below bed rails is the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3500-5W.

If you mean Overload springs when you say lift springs then the correct below bed installation kit is the Custom Underbed Installation Kit for B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWGNRK1110-5W.

If you do not have Overload springs then the correct install kit is the Custom Underbed Installation Kit for B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWGNRK1100-5W.

This is not your traditional rail mount system, the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3500-5W attaches to the install kit using the turnover ball hole and the system can be used as a gooseneck hitch when the 5th wheel hitch is removed and turnover ball put in place.

Question:

Scott S replied to a question I submitted regrading a 5th wheel hitch system for my 1989 Ford F250 Super Cab 3/4 T 4x4 8 ft bed. Attached is a picture of my F250 leaf springs. I dont know if the picture depicts overload/lift springs. I need to determine which custom underbed kit I need, the 1110-5W or the 1100-5W based on the springs I have. Thanks

Thank you for the picture. From the picture we can tell that you do not have the overload springs. That means the correct underbed kit for you is the Custom Underbed Installation Kit for B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWGNRK1100-5W.
