Question Anyone using a PullRite Superlight hitch in a Ford 6 3/4' short bed?

OK folks I have searched this hitch here and have read a lot. I am looking at getting the PullRite Superlite hitch.
ISR Series SuperLite Four Point (4P) Rail Mounted Fifth Wheel Hitch | Fifth Wheel Hitches by PullRite


I currently have a long bed, but looking at a new F250/350 short bed supercab with the 6 3/4' box with fords 5th wheel package.


Pullrite makes an adapter rail
OE Series Ford Industry Standard Adapter | Fifth Wheel Hitches by PullRite
That fits the Ford system. I like this set uo as I can use my existing Reese GN hardware too that fits the standard rail



Is anyone using this set up in a Ford 6 3/4' short bed and how are the clearance issues if the king pin adapter is in the forward position?


Any help is appreciated.


BTW - please don't recommend any slider systems or other hitch brands including the Anderson as I have been there before.



My GD Reflection 220RK does come with a turning point hitch that can be used with a standard fifth wheel hitch that will also work in the short box if this does not. I have an existing 18 year old Rees 15K that I can use, but the jaws have some slop in them- thus the looking at this new hitch. And yes I know I can replace the jaws.



Thanks for any help

I have a 2016 F250 with the Ford prep (pucks) in the box. I have a pullrite superglide with the Reese adapter from puck to ISR. Reese adapter was cheaper to purchase at the time. They looked identical. With the adapter and my hitch I can see the saddle on the hitch in my rear view so hooking up is easy. Only thing I added to my hitch was sleeves on the saddle capture pins. Stops the saddle from moving up and down. Pullrite also replaced at no cost to me the roller pin with castle nut in the lower track. My hitch had the serated lock nut and it kept coming loose. Other than the weight of the adapter and hitch we really like this setup. Been south to Florida and to canadian East coast with no issues and no worries. I have rigged an atv winch up in my garage to lift it out and in.

Your set up will be different with the ball and socket My comment was on the puck and adapter setup.

Can’t help you with the SuperLite, I have an Andersen. I just moved my block so the ball will be behind the kingpin. With it in front of the kingpin the pin box was rubbing on my rails for my tonneau cover when backing into my driveway. I haven’t towed with it that way yet.

If you haven’t seen it yet there is a 5th wheel section at the Ford Truck Enthusiasts forum. Someone there may be able to help you.
