This 2003 Chevy 2500 shortbed had been purchased used and had been fitted with a fifth-wheel hitch at some point in its history. We don’t know what hitch it was or who installed it, but modern installation practice is to bolt on the mounting brackets, not weld them.
Now it’s time to prepare the hitch for installation. This baby weighs around 190 pounds, so C&S uses a forklift to raise it to truck-bed level until it is ready for its new home. These feet mount to the hitch base on each corner and fit into the slots in the base rails.
Once it was determined that the hitch was positioned correctly, the frame bracket is used as a template to drill the mounting holes. PullRite supplies the bracket with several holes already drilled to meet the needs of different applications.
