5th wheel fitting questions

I am about to buy a 2004 F-350 and I want to use the Husky 5th wheel that is fitted to my Dodge Ram. What will I need to fit it?
Thanks

Is the hitch sitting in rails like this:

If so, you need the rails in your truck, and then the hitch will just fit the rails.

Yes it is. Is it worth taking the brackets off the Dodge?

Yea, but Dodge with overload springs have special rear brackets. But all other normal parts can be used.
Pictured are all normal parts.

You could take the front brackets off because they will be the universal style.
