Review of Curt Accessories and Parts C16428


Today we're going to take a look at the Curt custom fifth wheel bracket kit for Ford trucks. Now this is a custom-fit part. It is designed to fit the 2017 Ford F250, F350, and F450 Super Duty trucks without the factory rail kit. Now on a custom-fit part, I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year/model vehicle, and it'll show you if these brackets will work for your applications. These will mount beneath your truck bed. They do provide the attachment points for fifth wheel rails to attach to. Now the rails we do sell separately on our website.

They do require the Curt base rails, and there's two part numbers we sell on the Curt base rails. It's C16104 which is the gloss finish rails, or C16204 which is the carbide finish rails. And I happened to pull just one of the carbide finish rails just to give you an idea of what the rails look like. These are what attach to these mounting brackets that are underneath your truck. The base rails are what will sit in your truck bed, and it allows the fifth wheel hitch to attach to your vehicles. These brackets, here, these will provide the custom-fit by mounting to existing holes in your vehicle's frame.

These will help minimize the amount of drilling that's required. Basically cuts your installation time in half compared with universal bracket kits. Now this part will include all the necessary mounting hardware to install them, a nice set of detailed installation instructions. Also in this kit is this roll of tape which is a galvanic isolator kit. Basically that's the polyurethane film, and that'll prevent galvanic corrosion by serving as a protective barrier between the aluminum body of your Ford truck, and these brackets, and the base rails.

Now this part is compatible with BMW, Curt, Draw-Tite, In-Hitch 00:01:37, Husky, Reese, and Valley above bed fifth wheel trailer hitches. That should do it for the review on the Curt custom-fit fifth wheel bracket kit for Ford trucks.
