Curt Fifth Wheel Hitch Parts - Legs for Chevy GMC Prep Package - CU53FR Review


Ellen: Hey everyone, I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com and we're going to be taking a look at the Curt prep package fifth wheel legs. These are going to be the base for your fifth wheel hitch for your truck, and this particular kit allows you to use it with the prep package for your Chevy and GMC trucks so you can update that fifth wheel hitch to the new prep package, so you don't have to worry about getting an entirely new fifth wheel. You can use what you already had and make it work.This is a direct piece from Curt so will work with a lot of different fifth wheel heads. That's a complete list there of what this is going to work with, so if you have any of those guys they should fit with these just fine. It does have a weight capacity of 25,000 pounds as far as the towing weight, so you want to make sure that you go off of that and also you want to check the owner's manual for your truck as well, and also the head and always go off of the lowest number between all of those factors to make sure that you're staying within parameters for all of them.As you can see it's just going to be these two legs that come with the kit. They're going to allow you to open up those legs, drop them down into place, close up the pins there, and then they're going to lock into place.

To do that it's just a little cotter pin in between that allows you to open it up and then to close it down and you just replace that back. You can adjust the fit with these castle nuts on the inside, so if you feel like it's a little too loose or it's not fitting in there properly, or maybe it's getting stuck, you can make that adjustment with the castle nuts, and that's going to be the same for all four corners of our leg kit here.The attachment to our head assembly is going to be through these bolts and there's only one height that this will work with, so there's no vertical adjustment that you can make with this but it does provide you that sturdy base for your fifth wheel hitch. That does have a nice black carbide powder coat finish so it's going to help to resist any rust or corrosion. Again, this works for your Chevy and GMC trucks. It's going to be for the 2020 and newer for the long beds.Well, that's pretty much all there is to it for this leg kit.

I hope this video has been helpful in deciding if this is going to be the right kit for you. Again, I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com. Thanks for watching.
