Demco UMS Under-Bed 18K Ford Prep Package Autoslide Hijacker Description

It’s the day you have been waiting for you bought a brand new Ford truck with the Ford Prep Package and you are ready to go camping with the family. The hitches to choose from for towing your 5th wheel are endless, until now. Demco has made the 18k Autoslide Hijacker UMS Hitch for your Ford with the Prep Pack! Just drop it in and go, no messy rails or adapters to fiddle with.

One of the best things about the new Demco UMS Series 18k Ford Prep Package Hijacker is that it uses your existing pre-drilled holes in your Ford truck to set-up the hitch. There are no rails to clutter the bed of your truck. When you are ready to take the hitch out – that’s it, no rails! You can use the whole bed of your truck to haul those things you need from the hardware store. There will be plenty of room in the back of your truck and you won’t have to wonder “Where did I put those rails when I took the hitch out?”

Demco Autoslide Hijackers can be raised or lowered to meet your truck to trailer leveling needs. There are three adjustable heights - low 15 ½”, middle 16 ¾”, and high 18 ¼”. Other hitches on the market only have one option for height, but Demco gives you three!

Tired of stopping to get out of your truck to pull the lever on your manual slider? Get an Autoslide Hitch from Demco and let the Hijacker move your trailer away from your bed frame and windows while you are turning or backing up. No more worries about expensive RV repairs because the trailer was too close and a window was broken.

Towing your 20’ trailer during the busy camping season? Are you dreading trying to park in a spot at the grocery store or RV Park? The Demco Hijackers were designed to give you 14” of travel to make getting in and out of cramped spaces stress free and easy.

Safety and security are always a concern when you are traveling with your family. Each Hijacker hitch is tested and pre-greased at Demco to ensure your new hitch is ready to go for your families’ road trip.

Demco has added a wrap-around jaw with locking bar for a smoother, safer and more secure ride. Once you hook up to the Hijacker the locking bar releases the hitch coupler letting you know you are ready to go.

Does the job
This less expensive solution to the short bed truck does the job. Yes, it is much heavier than a standard hitch. What I did was install an 1/2 in eye bolt in the ceiling of my garage and bought an inexpensive 1 ton chain hoist to hang from it. Just pull the truck under the hoist and lift it out and set it down on a furniture dolly. So even though it is heavy I can install/uninstall and store the hitch by myself.
The biggest issue I have had is getting the hitch to line up properly and lock onto the pin. Seems like the capture bars won't turn the hitch even a tiny bit while hitching. I always get the pin box slightly on top of the capture bars and have to jiggle it around a bit by moving the truck back and forth a few times before it lines up and drops down between the capture bars.

Demco 18K Hijacker Autoslide - Ford Prep Package
Product works awesome. Used it a couple of times with my short bed and i can honestly put the trailer past a 90 deg with this hitch. It runs smooth and hooks up easy. I like that i did not have to buy additional catch plates. I am glad i went with this hitch and did not just buy the OEM hitch from the dealer. Dyers service was as expected and product arrived promptly. Would recommend this hitch to any short bed truck owner.
  • Autoslide and heavy build quality
  • Heavy, use the tractor to put it in, Took a little longer the half hour to set up

Demco Hitch for FORD
Used this hitch for the first time 6/26/2016, it worked just like they said it would. Very smooth and quiet operation pulling the trailer great with no problems at all. If I ever need RV parts the first place I'll check is Dyers RV parts, lowest prices I could find and shipping was included in the price of the hitch... Thanks Dyers for all your assisting me in picking the right hitch for my F-350

Demco UMS Under-Bed 18K Ford Prep Package
Finally used it this weekend, worked out as advertised.
Unit is solid but very heavy (around 300 lbs)
I actually let the trailer lift it out of the bed and will be stored on the pin until next use.
I would recommend the Demco hitch.
