Can A PullRite Sliding Hitch Be Used Instead Of A Sidewinder Pin Box For Ram With Ramboxes

PullRite sliding hitches have heads that turn as they slide back which would allow the pin box to turn and make contact with your Ramboxes. Unfortunately Ramboxes limit your options to just a fixed hitch and a rotating pin box. Since you're going to be using a rotating pin box you'll need four points of contact with the truck, which means you'll need to either have an in-bed puck system or base rail kit. Once you know if the truck has an in-bed puck system or if you'll need base rails I'd be happy to find a compatible rail kit for you.

As for the pin box you'll need to determine the bolt pattern in order to find a compatible rotating replacement. There is typically a sticker that lists a serial number and RPO number that we can use to determine the bolt pattern. If you no longer have this sticker then you can use the attached help article below to measure for the bolt pattern.
