PullRite Towing Systems, a subsidiary of Mishawaka, Ind.-based Pulliam Enterprises Inc., has developed a prototype fifth-wheel install kit that will work with the 2013 Dodge 2500 light-duty truck series.
According to a press release, there were “significant changes made by Dodge that prevent fifth-wheel install kits that fit previous model year Dodge trucks from being installed.” PullRite reported it had completed fit and testing for its prototype, Part No. 2740.
“To our knowledge, this is the only fifth-wheel install kit available for these trucks that does not require significant fabrication to either the frame bracket or the truck frame,” said Scott Later, national sales manager. “Because of this we anticipate significant demand on this item.”
The kit will allow for installation of any brand fifth-wheel hitch that uses industry standard bed rails. This includes the following PullRite hitches: No. 1900, 16,000 Super 5th; No. 2100, 18,000 Super 5th; No. 2700, 15,000 SuperGlide; and No. 2900, 18,000 SuperGlide.
Effective immediately, PullRite has made a limited number of these kits available for “Special Order Drop Ships” only. These kits will be available only through the company’s distributor partners for customers that have an immediate need. Standard “Special Order Drop Ship” terms will be in place and freight charges will apply.
