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.
Once satisfied that the measurements are correct, the technician drills small pilot holes using the base rails as a guide.
and spacer tubes supplied in the kit help distribute the load evenly so neither the truck bed nor the base rails are damaged when the bolts are tightened.
