5th wheel hitch install issue

So I'm trying to install a reese 14k 5th wheel hitch from a 89 f250 into my 90 gmc 3500 truck but no one will tell me what brackets I need for the installation to the frame rails.

Any ideas?

Trailer Hitches, Hitch Accessories, Hitch Wiring If they're not listed on their web site maybe a phone call to them will help. Good luck.

Steveman! You now know what brackets and bolt kit to purchase. One thing that might be missing, as it comes "truck specific", is exact mounting placement for your '90 truck. Each make and model has a specific mounting location. For instance my 96 Dodge was 2" in front of the rear axle, my 02 Chevy dually is dead centered on the differential.
This distance also takes into account such things as wiring, brake lines, frame pre-positioned holes- because some frames should not be drilled per mfgrs. instructions.
