I would german torque it on, my hitch has no height adjustment but you do not need any with that goose neck /kingpin just get a longer tube and drill another hole to give you more clearance.. BTW I would put in 2-3 bolts because my father inlaw has a pin box like yours and snapped 2 bolts that hold his in

Well I wanted to go with the superglide even though it would be a pain to get set up for my trailer. But my go to trailer/hitch shop changed their mind and said they dont wana deal with pullrite. Soo ill be going with a Reese 20K Slider in the near future. I did want the superglide for the no worry auto slideing feature and the bragging rights of having a sweet hitch set up but I really dont think its necessary in my set up. My trailer has a "V" Nose so I should have no worries. Now im just hoping Ill be able to leave my tool box on top the bed. Anyone have a 6 1/2' box that tows a fifthwheel with a above bed toolbox on like the one in my garage?

You will need a capture plate to mount to the pin box on your 5er. Pullrite makes many universal and some custom fit capture plates designed specifically to your pin box without any welding needed.

http://www.pullrite.com/pdfs/UCP.pdf

I used the custom capture plate designed for the Mor-Ryde pin box. The whole idea of the capture plate is to position the sliding hitch forward or rearward of center to move the 5er away from the truck as you turn. The capture plate is similar to a keyway system where the hitch is locked into the pin box and senses the turn so that the 5er can be automatically slid back away from the tow vehicle while turning.


I never regret the decision to buy my Pullrite and the only drawback is the 15 degree unhitch rule. You can do a tighter turn when unhitching, just need to pull 2 pins on the hitch and raise the 5er with the hitch head and you are done. Rehitching at the exact same angle becomes challenging but is doable.


Good Luck

If you look at the pics I posted above my pin box is a little tricky'er to install the capture plate. It is only maybe 12"s in diameter so it makes it difficult to bolt the minimum 10(?) bolts required in the instructions. I have decided to go with a Reese 20K Manual Slider Hitch because 1. I should be able to get away without the auto slider as my trailer is a "V Nose" type and should be fine (fingers crossed) as is and I'll have the slider just in case and 2. My local hitch place that will be doing the install says they dont want to deal with that hitch. They have seen only one before and it was brought in to have some pieces on the hitch head replaced and they decided that it isnt the best option for our climate up here in Sask. Maybe there are people with other opinions but I havent heard those opinions from guys with comparable climates.
