Bought a used f350 about a year ago and have been unable to find anyone who can tell me what type of hitch, or who made, or anything about the under-bed rail system that was already in the truck when I purchased it - it is not your typical rail system as it is not a rectangle - the rear holes (connections) are narrower than the front - If anyone know who this is made by (no marks on it) OR what type hitch hooks into it, I would be greatly appreciative!!

Definitely need to know the year of the truck. Newer Fords (2014+ I think) had the option of factory rail systems that are under the bed.

Take a look at the video for B&W Companion Hitch install for Ford Factory Rails. Based not that video, it doesn't seem like the pucks you have match the OEM kit.

The way the front and rear connections are offset and the direction of the slots makes me think it could be a PullRite Under Bed Connection System. IF that's correct, you'd need the PullRite Superglide 5th wheel hitch to mate up with that system.

Take a look at these Ford Under Bed Kit installation instructions and see if the recommended measurements match up with the hole locations in your bed.

Isnt that odd though that its to the rear of the truck? In reference to the gooseneck cut out and the four other points.

As you see in the pic the proper points are there but around the center of the gooseneck cut out...

It is a pullrite under bead brackets for the superglide hitch nothing unusual about it.

I kind thought the placement was strange. I would have thought it wound be centered over the axle. But if it’s a super glide it will need support in the rear position too.

The pin is centered or in front of axle, I have got this hitch, if you' look at your brackets you will se that rear of hitch is supported on the chassis.

the truck is a 2013 - and I'll take measurements to compare with the Superrail mounting kit BUT that looks to be it // THANK YOU ALL!!! I am not sure why no one could tell me this until now // I even sent pictures and description to eTrailer.com guys and they had no idea (guess that should tell me something :-) THANKS THANKS THANKS!!! After I compare measurements, I'll let every one know. APPRECIATED!

To be fair, etrailer.com doesn't appear to sell Pullrite, so they wouldn't recognize it.
