Bed Liner Removal For Fifth Wheel Hitch Installation

Written by Hitchweb Team Tuesday, February 7, 2017

Do I need to remove my bed liner to install a fifth wheel hitch?

Bed Liners

As fifth wheel hitch bed rails require direct metal to metal contact with the truck bed and to avoid deterioration of the liner under the rails which could cause the rails to become loose, the plastic liner would need to be trimmed away.

If your vehicle has a spray-in type liner, you can install the fifth wheel hitch rails directly on top of it.

Written by Hitchweb Team Monday, January 23, 2017

Our customer: Can I order a Tekonsha ZCI wiring harness from you? I was planning to order a hitch for my 2007 BMW X3 but did not see that specific convertor. My mechanic tells me that is what I should get.

Tekonsha ZCI Universal ModuLite ConverterThis is a great question and your mechanic is absolutely correct! The Tekonsha ZCI Zero Contact Interface Universal ModuLite makes it fast, easy, and safe to add a 4-way trailer connector to your vehicle to power your trailer's lights. Normal trailer light wiring will require you to either splice into your vehicle wiring or plug-in to existing factory connections (when available).The ZCI system will bypass your vehicle's wiring entirely by clamping the intuitive sensors onto the individual wires of your factory tail light harness.


Each sensor is able to read the current that travels through the wire that...
