I have the 8528CKWS towed with a short box 6'4" Dodge. The fifth wheel hitch was also "thrown in", but the dealer included a slider at the same price as the fixed hitch. I do not use the slider function. My Fifth wheel came with the Reese Revolution King Pin. This completely negates the need for a slider. I am very happy with this setup and if possible, I would go that route, because you won't have to get in and out of the truck to engage and disenage the sliding function.
