My brother Bob, "r2millers" bought an almost-new Reese 16K fifth-wheel hitch yesterday to install on his SuperDuty.
The assembly came with the mounting rails, but the supporting bracketry that goes BELOW the bed, attaching to the frame, was all welded to the original owner's frame, so we knew we'd need "something additional", but not exactly "what".
We searched and scoured the interwebz, and came up with nothing that had any detailed dimensions. Late last evening we thought of Bill, as he has a similar hitch on his truck.
After a note to him, Bill took a flashlight out to his truck and took detailed photos and sent them along to us. AT NINE O'CLOCK!
That's what this brotherhood is all about, and Bill deserves some recognition of his efforts and spirit.
He also deserves our thanks!
Thanks, Bill! Bob might get this installed by Friday's need-to-tow after all....
