5th wheel plate mounting in my 2004 F250

for those of you that have fifth wheels, I Have a question. I am getting some rails from my cousin, but I need to know if there is any special bracketry that I may need to mount this into my truck... or, does it simply bolt straight to the top of the C frame rails.... if anyone has an origianl install instructions I would love to see them... (.PDF) if you have one

sorry dont have pix now but what brand? if reses then the brakets are universal and easy to install. but some others are a little harder to install. but no they not just go into the to of the frame rail. next time you are out look for a truck and look into the back and see if it has rails and you will see how they go on. you how they say a pic is worth 1,000 words and i have a reses installation manual and all it is is the all wrighting. but will find it now and get back to you.

Normally there are "L" brackets that bolt to the side of the frame. Your rails will bolt down thru the bed to the "L" bracket.

Some companies produce "special" brackets for specific years. The universal brackets will work, just require some drilling.

If you go to any camper shop, they will sell the install package. Iknow this , because I just put one in my 04 f250. They are universal, like they stated above. It took me about 2 hrs with the drilling. Just make sure the hitch rails are set for the correct depth from the tailgate. I paid 60.00 for the install hardware. i had a reese slider. Good luck with it..
