5.0 hitch for Ram 1500 short box/ram box

We plan to pick up our 5.0 in the Spring of 2022. Has anyone installed an Anderson hitch in a a Dodge Ram 1500 short box with a ram box? We were told that you can install the Anderson hitch with rails, but that it is not recommended as it could damage the rear truck window. Has anyone installed one with a ram box and have you had any issues? If any of you have a short box/ram box, what would you recommend?

Hi: pandcleis... I was warned away from the Ram boxes due to the pin length and the impact it will have on the inside of the truck box. We have a Ram 1500 EcoDiesel with the 5' 7" box and crew cab and a regular 5th wheel Husky16K EZRoller slider. We never slide it!!! Alf
