The #1500 OE Puck Series Super 5th is designed specifically for GM long bed trucks with pucks, but usable with short bed trucks with the right truck/trailer combination for those who don't mind making a larger turning radius to avoid cab contact. But if you want a true solution to short bed cab clearance limitations, check out SuperGlide for a fully automatic, sliding hitch!!
This direct attachment hitch mounts directly to your truck's OE mounting points...NO ADAPTER OR RAILS NEEDED!
The mounting post assemblies are completely removable for easier removal and installation of the hitch. Simply unpin handles, rotate 1/4 turn outward and lift the hitch out of the bed. NO TOOLS NEEDED! The #1500 is made from high quality American steel and premium hardware, like the use of castle nuts that allow for finer adjustments of the OE puck handles for ease of installation and fit!

The hitch plate is the first connection to your trailer. Ours have a fully automatic locking jaw, is the only self-locking handle on the market and has no secondary locking devices to engage. Its dual articulating hitch head moves side-to-side and front-to-back, giving you a smoother ride as you travel over bumpy roads. Even more important, PullRite's hitch plate allows you to couple/uncouple your trailer on uneven ground, whereas most other brand of hitches require you to jack up/shim your truck and trailer to be level with one another to prevent a false hookup or "high hooking." And removing PullRite's automatically-locking hitch plate is done by pulling two pins and clips, unlike other hitches on the market that require tools for removal. There's more to say about this great hitch plate, so check out why our hitch plate is a "head above the rest" by clicking here.

A towing system includes each vehicle and component involved in towing. Each item in your towing system has a capacity or weight rating. You trailer has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating, or GVWR. Your truck has a tow capacity, payload capacity, and possibly more. In addition, your fifth wheel hitch has a weight rating. This weight rating must be at, or above, the GVWR of your trailer for you to tow safely. In addition, if your truck can tow larger loads (has a larger capacity) than the rating of your hitch, your system is only safe to tow loads at the lower rating, that of the hitch.
Your mounting kit also has a weight rating, just like your fifth wheel hitch. Many times, these rating are designed to match. But, this is not always the case. Your mounting kit may be higher rated then your fifth wheel hitch, but it also could be lower depending on the components involved. The lowest rating of any one component in the system becomes the rating of the entire system. If your mounting kit is rated to 18,000 lbs., and your hitch is rated at 24,000 lbs., the weight rating of the entire system will not be above 18,000 lbs. Other components in the system could lower the actual system rating further.
It is the end users responsibility to ensure a safe towing experience. To this end, it is your responsibility to ensure that the truck, trailer, hitching components, and all other items involved are rated or have a capacity sufficient for the loads involved.
