5th wheel rails

Ok so I screwed up and didn't get the 5th wheel prep in my 2013 when I ordered it, the wife and I are looking to get a 5th wheel camper for next season. I wanna do the rails so I can either put a 5th wheel or gooseneck on them, how hard would it be to install the factory 5th wheel prep or would it be easier to install an aftermarket setup? Thanks!

The Companian will be your 5th wheel hitch.

the companion will slide in the same hole and pin just like the gooseneck ball it is by far the nicest cleanest option on the market. no rails to stick up no holes all over the bed and the ratings are the best in the business.

I also like the B&W setup. I planned on getting that along with the Companion in whatever truck I ended up buying, but the 2012 I found came with the 5th wheel prep and the 24k hitch already installed. I am not sure what the price difference is but I have nothing bad to say about the factory equipped package. I have used it several times in the first 5k miles I have on my truck and its been great. I am still planning to buy the rest of the components for it to pull a gooseneck.
