Hijacker Hitch

I am new to fifth wheeling and am wondering if anyone has any experience with the Hijacker 24-SL-16 16k Slider Fifth Wheel Hitch? My dealer is recommending this for an '04 Dodge 3500 short box. I have purchased a new 28' Flagstaff super lite 5er.

Spend the extra money and get the Pullrite Superglide with super rails. It allows me remove the hitch, with engine cherry picker, then remove the standoffs and I have full use of my bed again.
Yes it's alittle spendy but it cost less than repairing the front cap and the rear cab of the truck. Also I don't have to plan my turns, that is get out, in the rain, pull a lever, get in the truck, set the 5th wheel brakes, pull forward, get out , in the rain, lock the slider, make the turn, stop the truck and get out , in the rain, pull the lever, set the trailer brakes, backup, get out , in the rain, lock the lever, get in the truck and dive off.
Man I'm tired just triing to explain it and I'm not out in the rain.

I spent a couple of weeks searching Craigslist and found several SuperGlides for sale. I drove from Denver to Grand Junction to buy a never-used 16K with SuperRail kit and brackets that fit my truck for $850. I spent $10 for a hole saw and mounted it myself (freaky to bore 4 big holes in the bed of my new Super Duty, but otherwise pretty straightforward).

I love the hitch. I don't have to remember to release a slide when I'm distracted by weather, traffic, the phone, the nav system or conversation in the cab. 'Cuz I'm nothing if not distractable. It's the reason I also added a Blue Ox BedSaver. Check it out at blueox.com.
