Anyone using the AUH with a 64 Dodge Ram bed and a North Point trailer?

My initial thought was that a Morryde rubber Pinbox would be the solution, but the mounting wings on the trailer side won’t accommodate standard pin boxes.

So I installed LCI shocks and things are much better. The bucking isn’t completely gone, but the shocks made a big difference.

This is my first fifth wheel and I’ve always had the Andersen so it’s possible what I’m feeling is all normal.
Shall36, If you get time, could you Post picks on how / where your shocks are mounted? Im still learning about this and my trailer only has leafs from what I can see?

The kit is $140 or so per axle. Comes with mounting brackets. Fairly easy to install if you have a decent set of tools. Probably a three hour job if you do it all at once. Made a nice difference in the bucking.

I switched from a Pullrite 18K Superslide to the Anderson Aluminum. The weight of the hitch is nice. I use a turnover ball to mount the hitch rather than a rail system. This pulls the hitch down tight to the bed. No loose moving parts, chucking or making noise. I have only pull it on a short run but I am very happy with it.
The only drawback for me is I can no longer turn the trailer 90 degrees to the truck. I have a 3500 short bed, it appears the nose of the trailer will hit my cab.

Received my 3200 today, I haven't used it yet but looking forward to it.
I'll get it installed this weekend and hopefully road test it in the near future.

What trailer are you pulling and how close to 90 degrees can you get?
