5th wheel on a lease

This is my first post here.
I am leasing my first truck and wondering if you can install a 5th wheel when leasing.
I have the tow package with brake controller and the 3.5lt ecoboost.

I would think it would be wise to consult with your lessor before doing any modification that is not easily undone.

Agreed, generally, any leases I've known about require the vehicle to be returned in the condition it was delivered, plus, there's an inspection by the leasing company for damage prior to return.

5th Wheel hitches are considered structural damage and could cause you some serious
issues at return time

Window tinting is relatively easy to remove. If it's a good enough job, it may be considered an improvement.

Might depend on who is doing the inspection prior to the lease return. I think the majority of the concern is damage and major mods like engine, suspension, body kits, neon lighting, fart cans etc, you gotta figure they're looking to unload the return at auction, so window tint is relatively benign, unless it looks like you sprayed black Plasticoat on the inside of your windows. Either way, like Mike said, it peels off.
