F 350 tow package

Looking at a leftover 2018 350SD Lariat with a tow package. Anyone know if the pre-drilled holes in the bed are the same dimensions to fit a 10 year old Pullrite Superglide hitch? Side to side is adjustable on the hitch but front to back is not. Just trying to be "educated" before heading to dealer where I can take a measurement. Thanks.

There is no way to know without a tape measure sorry.

Factory drilled?

If so you should be good to go as you can buy the puck bracket to universal rails and get the pullrite adaptater to universal.

Good Luck!

Old style rail hitches will not drop into the new puck systems. You would need an adapter to adapt from rail to puck. Since your hitch is 10 years old, I would bite the bullet and install a new hitch designed for the pucks, I think you would be much happier, although a little lighter in the wallet.

Thanks all for your replies. I did go with a leftover 2018 Ford 350 Lariat crew cab with the short bed. It did not have the camper package so as it turned out I don't have to worry about the fit of the old hitch. Just need to get it loaded, secured, and go to a local installer who knows Pullrite installation. The bed already has been treated with a spray on protection so that is done. Merry Christmas to all!

I have the one that PullRite sells; it’s called the picture frame. Ended up not using it it, because it raised my slider hitch too high. That said, it fits the new Super Duty F-series puc system perfectly. Very easy to assemble with multiple adjustments.
