Thumbs down 2013 Ram 3500 waiting for Pullrite

I have a 2013 Ram 3500 with factory 5th wheel/gooseneck prep package. I also have a 18,000 lb. Superglide hitch that I used on my old F-350. Now I find out Pullrite has no mounts for my truck because of the frame changes. Pullrite's mounts are suppose to utilize the main cross member designed for a gooseneck.
So far pullrite will only say they are working on it. I don't understand the delay or why they refuse to be more specific. The people I talk to don't know what's going on.

Just got my pullrite mounted on my 2013 3500 this week. Taking it out next week. Curt makes an installation bracket kit 3500 HD (C16426) and base rail kit (C16204) that will work. e.trailer.com has them pretty reasonable.
Good luck!

Does this kit work with the factory 5th wheel prep?

I'm not sure, but I've read in other forums that people were getting them installed with the prep pkg. I'd check with Curt or B & W. You're dealer should be able to assist with this by now.

Pullrite made the Superglide hitch, why do you think they are the last to make the mounts for their own hitch?

Pullrite makes a hitch that will mount onto the industry standard rails, I had them installed myself, measure twice weld once. They are installed on my 2013 CTD Big Horn Short Bed Crew Cab. I've been towing since June. Remember always use WD40 to lube the rails and slot in the hitch as manufacture recommends. I lube the hitch every day when towing.

Every time I call Pullrite about the mounting system for the superglide hitch they say they're working on it but can't give me a date. Maybe, if everyone with a Ram 3500 calls them they will work on it a little harder.

Pullrite Superglide hitch cost me twice as much as a standard hitch and Pullrite doesn't have mounts for a 2013 Dodge Ram 3500 which has been out for six months. Anyone else see a problem with this?
