Bed Liner Removal For Fifth Wheel Hitch Installation

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.
