First thing you will want is a fifth wheel rail kit for your 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 with a 6 foot bed. For that you will want a custom install kit because they install in about half the time as a universal kit and will minimize drilling. For that you would want the part # RP50040-58.

Now since you have a 6 foot bed you will want a slider hitch so that you can make tight turns like in a parking lot. The one I would recommend would be the Reese Slider Hitch part # RP30075. This hitch has a round tube slider that will bind less than a square tube, has a cushioned head for a smother ride quality and has a 360 degree contact 2 piece jaw that will also provide you with a smooth ride quality. Check out the review video I attached.
