dont you have a camping world in florida i would call and get with the service mgr if you cant pm me and i will give you the # to a great friend of mine that is the service mgr in north austin tx and he can help
I tried placed here in Miami,FL
but they want $300+-600 for the install alone. And I need to drop off the truck.
No way, I will do it myself and right.
I wish I could get it done for say 150 max.
I found instructions from reese but the same that I got in the box.
I have done them on a 92,93,98.5, and a 99. To be honest I just followed the reese instructions. Other than having a good sharp drill bit, and double check the measurements I don't think there really is any tricks.
Rails are easy to install. Use the instructions from the Reese website. Measure and set the rear rail, set in the A frame and front rail, get the rail holes in. Check the front rail to clear the bed brace, you may have to go 1/2 inch forward. Locate the frame braackets off the rail bolts and get set to drill the frame. Hint: go buy a new bit for the large holes. Bolt everything up and torque the bolts. Done in about 3 hours.
I'VE got a 16k reese hitch in good shape FOR SALE if anyone needs one .MAKE SURE YOUR BOLTS DON'T LINE UP WITH THOSE LITTLE CHANNELS UNDER YOUR BED BEFORE YOU DRILL THE HOLES.PLACE THE CENTER OF YOUR KING PIN WOULD BE JUST EVEN TO A COUPLE OF INCHES IN FRONT OF YOUR AXLE,SHORT BED YOU MIGHT PREFER A SLIDER HITCH?PERSONALY I USE A B&W FLIP WITH A ADAPTER ON THE CAMPER SIDE.LEAVES MY TRUCK BED CLEAN.SOME THING TO THINK ABOUT?
