EAU CLAIRE, Wis. — One of the exciting new features of 2016 Chevy and GMC pickup trucks is the puck system, Curt Manufacturing reported in a press release. Though previous models have been offered with a towing prep package, the 2016 package will include the fifth wheel/gooseneck mounting system built into the truck bed, similar to the Ford and Ram vehicles. Curt has introduced a new set of fifth wheel legs made specifically to fit GM trucks.
Like the Ford and Ram fifth wheel legs currently offered by Curt, the GM OEM-compatible legs streamline the setup process, the release stated. Once bolted onto the fifth wheel hitch head, they easily drop into the truck bed mounting platform. They use a quarter-turn anchoring system for fast installation and removal, and the anchors can be adjusted to eliminate chucking between the legs and under-bed rails.
For maximum versatility within the Curt fifth wheel line, the OEM-compatible legs for GM feature a gross trailer weight capacity of 25,000 pounds, allowing them to be compatible with any Curt fifth wheel hitch. The legs can be purchased as a standalone or as a package with each Curt fifth wheel hitch model, including the Q25, Q24, Q20, A20, A16 and E16 (capacity limited to lowest-rated towing component). For long-lasting reliability, the legs also come with a durable carbide black powder coat finish and a limited lifetime warranty.
