Hitch Rails


Love this forum, there is so much good info on here. I am about to pick up a 2009 Sundance and I am getting ready to install everything I need to tow it.

I do have a question for all those that are experienced in dealing with different hitches. Are all the bed rails the same (except for superglide and such). I was about to get a Reese for free but now I am looking at a Husky 16K for $200. The problem is I don't have a frame kit and the Husky kit is over 200 for the no drill application while a similar kit from Reese is only like $150. If I were to buy the Reese frame brackets and rails, would the Husky hitch mount to the Reese rails? If this doesn't work out then I am probably going to buy a Superglide. I just hate to spend 1500 buck on it, even though it's probably worth it. Thanks in advance for all the help!

I don't know what kind of truck you have but I like my 20.000 LB. Reese just fine, I now have it in my 3rd truck. (all Fords) I give it a real good cleaning and new paint about ever 2 years. It's been a good one so far. Good Luck on making up your mind.

The hitch rails are standard so there should be no problem.
