PullRite Towing System has announced the release of the new Chevrolet/GMC OE Adapter kit. Now Chevy/GM owners that have 2016/2017, three-quarter and one ton trucks, equipped with the factory towing prep kit, can install any ISR fifth wheel hitch. This is especially important for those who have “Short Bed Trucks”, that require a sliding fifth wheel hitch. The adapter kit is compatible with both the 16K and 18K PullRite ISR SuperGlide models and has a SAE-J2638 weight rating of 20K.
The kit also is compatible with the New SuperLite fifth wheel hitch or the Super fifth hitch for Long Bed Trucks. It incorporates CBT, (clean bed technology), that allows for quick and easy installation and removal, without requiring any tools.
The adapter that allows for installation of the Traditional SuperGlide to ISR bed rail has been reworked allowing it to adapt to the new kit.
