Recommended 5th Wheel Slider Hitch For A 2022 Ram 2500 Short Bed With Factory Pucks


I just purchased a 2022 Ram 2500 short bed and it has the factory puck system. I am interested in a slide fifth wheel hitch. Which one would you recommend?

For The 2022 Ram 2500 Short Bed With Factory Pucks I recommend The Demco Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # DM8550035.I like this slider hitch over the others because when making sharp turns you will not have to get out of your truck and adjust the hitch. It will slide by itself and then when you get the vehicle and trailer straight again it will go to normal. It is also extremely easy to install. You will also need the Rail Adapter # DM6099 which will fit right into your puck system and allows the Demco Autoslide to sit right on top of it.

I also recommend The Demco 5th Wheel/Gooseneck 90-Degree Wiring Harness # DM8555002. Using this harness will simplify your hookup of your 5th-wheel trailer. The harness will plug into the existing wiring and will retain use of the factory 7-pole at the bumper. I also like that is the connector is 90 degrees so it can fit into tight spaces.

I attached two installation video links below one of the Demco Autoslide and Rail Adapter being installed onto a 2017 Ram 2500 and one of the wiring harness being installed onto a 2021 Ram 2500. Both installations will be the same as your 2022 Ram 2500. If you have any further questions please feel free to reach back out to me anytime and I will be more than happy to further assist you in your towing endeavors.
