X2 on old thread, but I am amazed at the bad information some so called engineers give out here. Doesn't anyone think that Andersen engineers have gone over the numbers for every conceivable application modification someone might try. Also I am pretty sure they have tested every headbox combination to many time the failure rate to satisfy the lawyers. It isn't prudent for readers to throw out opinions about things they know nothing about.
And yes, I used an Andersen when I pulled a tt, and now use the Andersen Ultimate. Both are everything advertised. Don't pay attention to pseudo - engineers and Andersen haters.
Happy trails to all.

By the way. Andersen now markets the Ultimate with an unlimited, transferrable life time warranty.

Just got 2012 Ram 3500 Megacab DRW with a 6'3" bed. After reading a lot about the Andersen, it looks like it might work in this truck and save me some $. I'm not sure if using the Curt and reversing the adapter would work in my truck, any thoughts? The only other alternative I like (or can afford) is a Companion slider. Thanks

mikeinco:

Other than Andersen and a 6.3' bed you should also consider the shape of your 5ers nose (it should be sculpted in the so-called 'max-turn' style) and the length of your pinbox is relevant. Some are short some are so-called 'extended length' etc. Lastly is the height of your truck bed sides. For this last one, if the pinbox clears the top of the bed rails you may not need to reverse the Andersen adapter and that'll give you a full 8" more cab clearance.
