Congrads on your truck !!! I think you'll love it ! A slider is not a bad idea,,, but our 16 Cougar has the "max turn" nose, so we have plenty of room in our 6'4" bed with non slider hitch... Personally, unless its a emergency, I will never turn 80-90 degree turns... Watch those trailer tires and see what stress they are going through in a tight turn....

well, there is little doubt you are over the payload of the truck, as you cant steal payload deficiency from the CGVWR. Most 2500's run into this issue it seems (which is why I went with a 3500 srw)...but I see a lot of them out there towing toy haulers bigger than mine (3300 pin, 16500 loaded) and they seem to do fine. Good luck and have fun out there

Also, the pullrite is a great hitch. I would have gotten that if they offered an OEM puck mount for RAM. For my Ram (which I think has a 2 inch shorter bed than you), I definitely need a slider (or in my case a B&W with a sidewinder pinbox) as there have been numerous times I have been at 80-90 degrees and would have hit otherwise.

Actually, I am well within "Payload" of my truck... My "Pin" weight is 1760 lbs... There is a difference between Payload (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) and Gross Vehicle Combined Weight... (could be the only difference is the rear springs in your srw 3500) I NEVER suggest pushing weight limits on anything.....
