Factory Fithwheel / Gooseneck

I have a 2011 F-350 with the factory fifth wheel / goose neck prep package and i was wondering if the bed has rubber plugs to cover the holes when not in use because mine does not have them.

Yes, they were under the rear seat in a plastic bag with instructions for installation. You should get 5 trim rings and 5 plugs. The trim rings are installed by you one time and then they stay in the truck. The plugs are removed, added for hitch use/non-use.

I do have an installation tip for you, , , , those trim rings are hard to work with. This is worse if they are cold. If you can't get to a warm place (80+ degrees and bright sun) to install, try soaking them in very hot water and then install while warm. Your hands are going to cramp anyway before you finish but this will help!!!

Once the trim rings are in place, the plugs go in and out easy with a coin, key or screw driver.

They are supposed to install the trim rings as part of the make-ready. Mine were in when I picked it up.

I must be missing something on the trim ring install then.

My outer rings just lay over the post and is taller, so it moves around. The cent cap slips in and hold the outer. But it is easily knocked off.

So, are you saying the outer ring can be forced down over the post?
I didn't see any instructions for that and just assumed if I forced the rings they would break.
