Sure you can still use it. As long as you still use the capture plate. The distance from the hitch to the rear of the truck is the same whether it is a short bed or a long bed. All the distance in a LB is forward of the hitch. I pull with a LB Ford and have the 5th Airborne Sidewinder and use it. Doesn't make any difference. Put the SuperGlide in the new truck and enjoy. You well have the same maint. as you did with the SuperGlide before

Shame you are in Kentucky, we have a dealer here in our town, Lander, Wyoming, that has a lot of Ram long-beds and Ford long-beds. Seems like the prices are pretty good. I'll bet you can find one with a quick search on the web. Go out there looking and you will find a number of dealers that are anxious to get your business. I found that out when purchasing our last car. Had about five dealerships after our business, took the best quote to local dealer and they matched it and I didn't have to travel 300 miles to get a new car.

Beg to differ on transferring the Pull Rite Super Slide from a short to a long box truck. I was in the same position a few months back after discovering the 5th wheel I bought was too heavy for the 2500 short bed, and I traded for a 3500 long bed.

I also had been told by Pull Rite the hitch would transfer, but when I took it to my shop to have it mounted, they called me back and said Pull Rite doesn't have any hole diagrams for the long bed and they were afraid to just guess at where to drill the holes. I called Pull Rite, after they had originally told me I could use the hitch, and this time they said they didn't reccomend using the Super Slide on a long bed due to the length added to the tow by the slide when you turned. They said it would create an abnormally long rig that would require an abnormally long turning radius, such as going around a street corner.

Very disappointed. Had to buy a standard fixed 5th wheel hitch. My Pull Rite's for sale. Used it twice.

The 15K fits the standard rails and will install no different than a short bed. Length when slid all the way back would change by 2 ft at the most so I see no problem with it.

Had one, did it, no problem. It is a challenge to figure out the holes, but not that hard. No clearance issues either. Mounted the brackets underbed, then used a VERY long thin bit to do a pilot hole from the bottom, then went to the top and drilled out the holes for the pins for the super rails.

Agreed. No different than going from a 36' trailer, to a 38-39' one!

Just going by what Pull Rite said. Installer wasn't going to risk liability if factory wasn't going to provide correct installation holes. I'm not able to install it myself.
