My side rails are the same as yours. I have a 8 foot bed and don't need the slider hitch. I have the factory puck system and a Curt 20k hitch. It has adjustments from 13", 15" and 17". Thanks for all the info

Just set your hitch so the top saddle level is about two inches below the top side rails. This will give u a start point and clearance and go from there. I was also freaking out about mine since it was my first FW. I wish someone would of just said set the top saddle so many inches below the bed rail. All I got was pin heights level and everything else that just made it even harder to figure out. If u read my last post about hitting my roll up bed cover rail I just measured that and it is 1 inch above my bed rails. I will be replacing it soon and will get the new version where it is flat and same height as the bed. I carry stuff and it is nice to keep the bed covered and hitch out of the weather when not used
What brand of tonneau cover? I'm probably going to have to take mine off, Truxedo LoPro QT, because it sticks up about an inch and extends inward a couple. I'd like to have a cover, but it seems options are limited w/o the framework interference.

Mine is an older Agri-cover which is now Lorado. My kid just got one for his truck and the side rails are maybe 1/4 inch above his bed rails. That is there newer one. Yours is just like mine. As soon as mine bites the big one (probably soon) since it is going on eight years in Fl sun I will get there newer almost flush one. I put 303 protectant on it about ever 3-4 months. The tread holding the Velcro gave up but some industrial contact cement fixed that

Thanks, I'll look into those. I LOVE my current cover, but I'm sure it will have to go!

I just installed Reese 16k, with Reese adapter mount kit for 2016 F250 with the factory puck system. I had the hitch in a 2005 F250. With the adapter kit I can definitely see that hitch is a lot higher due to the lift of the adapter kit it sits on. I had the hitch on its highest setting in the 2005. I'm guessing I'll drop a couple notches and test.

Hey, out of curiosity, were you able to find a dually with a short bed? When I ordered mine, it was a resounding NO on the short bed. Not that I'm complaining, I love what the 8' bed can haul, but she's a beast going down the road!

I ordered the MOPAR 25k hitch, which, as I understand it, is a Curt head on a Reese set of legs. Got a MOPAR credit card, used it for the down payment of the truck, paid it off and used the points to knock 500 bucks off the price of the hitch. Works great with the fifth wheel prep.
