Hijacker auto slide hitch

Anyone have and experience with the Hijacker auto-slide 5th wheel hitch? I might be purchasing a RAM 3500 short bed truck and will have to go to an auto slide. I looked at the PullRite Superglide but it does not have any height adjustment, the height above the bed is greater then the bed height and I would not be able to use a RollnLoc cover.

The Hijacker has 3 different height settings. So does any have one, how do you like it, how well is it holding up and is there any shifting or banging when you are in stop and go traffic?

Thanks Bill

Too new to be widely available. eTrailer.com has them, but they don't include them as available for a Ram with 6' bed.

Also note the effectiveness. The Hijacker slider will slide 14". The SuperGlide will slide over 20". That's a huge difference that could be the difference in a crunched cab or a nice jackknife turn.

Suggestion: regardless of which one you decide on, be sure to order the new Ram with the optional 5er/gooseneck install kit with under-bed rails. That's dirt cheap when you order it as an option, but very expensive if you later decide to install it yourself or pay someone to install it for you. Both automatic sliders can be ordered to plug into above-bed "industry standard" bed rails (i.e., Reese bed rails), but then you have the bed rails in the bed all the time. With the factory prep kit option, you have clean uncluttered bed when you remove the hitch.
