Recommended Industry Standard Rails for a 2023 Chevy Silverado 3500

Question:

I have an 8 foot long bed 2023 Chevy Silverado 3500 and it does not have the puck system from the factory. I need a set of rails to mount my 5th wheel hitch on. Additionally I would like to add a plug for my trailer's wiring inside the bed of my truck.

To add a set of industry standard rails to your 2023 Chevy Silverado 3500 you will want the Curt Fifth Wheel Installation Kit item # C16429-204. This kit is custom fit for the 8' bed Silverado's.

This kit is custom fit and bolts to your Silverado's frame with included hardware. It attaches in pre-drilled holes in your trucks frame. These industry standard rails will allow you to attach your Curt 5th wheel hitch and any other 5th wheel hitch that fits on industry standard rails like B&W, Draw-Tite, or Reese.

I have linked a picture below that will show you what these rails look like installed along with an installation video.

To make towing with a 5th wheel easier I recommend adding the Demco 5th Wheel/Gooseneck 90-Degree Wiring Harness with 7-Pole Plug item # DM8555002. This harness puts a 7-way connector in the bed of your truck and allows you to keep the one on your bumper. This makes hooking up to your 5th wheel trailer easier and more convenient.

I have linked an installation video below along with a picture of this in bed 7-way in use.
