Strange that anyone would weld brackets on a 2016 RAM 3500 when it came with the puck brackets already on the frame. RAM advises against welding on these new frames.

The pucks are fairly easy to add. I installed my pucks and wiring for an inbed 7 pin outlet in 4-4.5 hours working by myself!


I asked about the welding without an answer so far.

X2!
I would rather add the puck system than put rails in the bed!

Sold the Andersen, no rails. The guy had a slider and wanted to replace it with Andersen, so he already had rails in his truck.

Our camper was unfortunately caught up in a flood and totaled. We have decided to down grade back to a TT for the time being, and knowing we'll have it the next few years at very minimum, I think i'm going to sell my hitch.

Am I expected to remove the rails from my PU bed when selling, or in most cases does the hitch go and the rails stay?

My rails are bolted in from the inside of the bed, but the mounts are welded to my truck frame.


Don’t have an answer but I am curious is the welding mentioned on your 16 RAM?



yes, 2016 Ram 3500 srw crew cab.

I don't have any clue. It's a pro series 20k. I don't know a heck of a lot about it, but there are 4 brackets welded to my frame, 2 on each side of the truck.

Council Hitch is said to be the most reputable place to have hitch work done in the area, perhaps they can shed some insight?

I sold two hitches over the years. Both instances the guys buying the hitches never even questioned me about rails, both guys already had rails in their trucks.

Now I have the B & W puck system in my RAM and have NO desire to sell this hitch! Best hitch I've ever owned! [emoticon]
