Ram OEM towing

Hi Everyone,
I'm new to this site. For those of you who have a Ram with the oem towing setup, this question is for you.
We had a 04 Ram with fifth wheel rails bolted in, and I use a Husky roller slider hitch. Now we upgraded to a 16 Ram with the factory towing setup. What are my options for using my Husky roller slider? I don't want to buy a whole new hitch, so do I buy a "picture frame adapter" ? If so what brand to buy?

The Industry standard "picture frame adapter" is made by Reese. The Reese adapter will work fine with regular Husky 5er hitches. But Reese says it will not work with an auto-slide 5th wheel hitch. So if your Husky is a manual slider, the Reese adapter will probably work.

That link says it's for a Ram.

And that link ties it down to a 2016 Ram.

thanks for the replies.
My slider is manual, so it should work then.
I filled out my signature but it doesn't show up.
