    Ouch, that has to be the hard way to get to the oil pan! Sorry. How many miles did the u- joint last?

    I'd love to do it now, but between medical bills and having to get a pickup before hay season, it won't be today. 😒

    In 2017, 3.42 ratio was standard for the diesel. 3.73 and 4.10 ratios were optional. That is from the sales brochure. I did a lot of research when looking to buy and have many brochures.

    So far it is getting 17.2MPG. the 3.73:1 anti-spin rear differential is awesome on the highway and on the county gravel roads and the gravel/dirt hill upto the house. The tires like to lift off the washboard parts of the road so it is time for shocks. It will be a little while but I'm going to start researching deletes and ways to make sure the 68RFE lasts. It is sooo quiet inside. Amazing!

    Austin, I was complaining about how weak it was to Desperado. He asked if I had tried it in tow / haul mode. I hadn't. It definitely works then!

    It's weird hearing the turbo speed up as the engine slows down to an idle at a stop light. New technology to get used to. [emoji846] Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    2012 3500 Deep Molten Red Laramie Longhorn 63,000 miles, gooseneck hitch and retractable tonneau cover. The Ol Blue plates I've had for about 23 years just got returned to DMV today. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Fifth wheel gooseneck prep into 2011

    Ai found the parts list and installation instructions. All of the parts they have in common such as the frame mounted brackets and plates are the same part number. I'm really thinking that both the fifth wheel and gooseneck hitches will fit a 2010 to 2012 as well as the 2013 and later. Aftermarket hitches such as B&W, Reese, Curtis, etc all have the same part number for the different years too.

    Fifth wheel gooseneck prep into 2011

    Hi Kevin. That is what I have been seeing also, but I don't (or can't) find a frame, exhaust, bed, or any reason why it won't work. I was hoping someone had hands on experience with a 2010 to 2012 and a 2013 and newer and could say that there is or isn't any differences that they noticed.

    Fifth wheel gooseneck prep into 2011

    Hi Mark. I've been doing plenty of reading and think I understand how it mounts. Thanks for the offer though. With the under bed puck system, all 4 mounting points for the fifth wheel are mounted to the frame. Pretty sturdy IMHO for a slider. The OEM gooseneck hitch fits 2010 to 2018, but the fifth wheel system is only listed for 2013 and newer. I'm trying to find out if that is only because the first year offered was 2013 but it would / could fit a 2010 through 2012.
