I didn't know they did the prep in swb trucks. But here is the adapter I use in mine to allow me to use my old hitch.

Also don't order crap from hitchanything.com they will give you the run around and not ship it out FYI. Took me over 2 weeks to figure out they were not going to ship it after they billed me and then another week for them to cancel the order and refund my money. While all that was going on my local truck guy had mine sitting in his place the next day and put in the truck a few bourse later bymyself.

They will put in the hitch prep but you cannot order the factory installed hitch with a short bed. Try U-Haul for towing supplies. I have been pleased over the years by the availability and prices. They install anything they sell, and it seems like wherever you are, there is one close by.

You will need to remove the factory prep and get a new frame mount kit from Pullrite. The factory prep will unbolt from the frame. I don't know if the holes in the bed will be in the same place . I took mine out of my 05 and installed it in my new truck. Great hitch.

My 2011 Job 2 is a short box with the prep in from factory. Also, I pull a 36' 5th wheel with no problems.

Thanks for the video I can do this myself with a little from my friends Does the b&w double as a gooseneck also or did it just look that way?

I spoke with someone at PullRite and they are coming out with an adapter for the Ford Prep Kit so you can put your SuperGlide in it. No need to uninstall the factory prep package. Sounds like it should be available within the month.

Both Airsafe
Installation Rails
and Trailersaver
New! The BD3 Air-Ride 5th Wheel Hitch.
sell adapters. Confirm that their adapters include the Ford donut parts or if you need to buy them separaterly.

The donut parts are what is sold by Ford (and now others) to convert your old "Reese Elite" aftermarket underbed hitch to "Reese Elite" hitch that will fit the 2011 factory prep. You also rotate the Reese base 180 degrees to move the centerpin forward for the 2011 setup. If youfail to do so, the pin will be behind the rear axle causing a lot more sag...

Also, FYI, earlier aftermarket underbed adapter plates for the early (pre-2011) puck systems will not work on 2011 factory prep- the donut bolts are shorter, smaller diameter, and the hitch pin position in the bed will end up behind the wheel (like not rotating the elete hitch 180 degrees). I know Airsafe has this figured out because I helpd get them there. Trailsaver's photos look like they have also.

An FYI for those using the Super Glide, the best pricing I found for the Slip Plate was the Slip Plate website.
I bought 6 cans (case) at a time and got the best price, free shipping and no tax.
