The B/W Turnover Ball is awesome. Just installed one in my truck Saturday.

There is only a 4 inch hole required in the bed, besides the small u-bolts for the chains.

Install is fairly easy, took me 4-5 hours, that is one beefy hitch too.

Ebay has them for 399.00 including shipping.

B&W turn over hitch. It mounts where you can pull a lever under the fender and flip the ball around. That way your ball is not in the bed when in use.

nope just have to drill the 4 inch hole in the bed and a few in the frame. its the best way to go and stronger then most as well. they are 30k instead of 25k like most.

On the one I just installed in my truck, no holes needed to be drilled in the frame.

B & W makes a great hitch. Easy install. Just be perfect on the 4 inch hole in your bed. Take your time. The turn overs are the best way to go because you can flip the ball over and it sticks down below your bed allowing your bed to be used however you want without that big ball being in the way.

This is a link. Click the link on the right side to "see in action". Curt also makes a hitch with this same setup, although theirs have 2 locking pins instead of 1. Just my .02

Remove your left tail light assembly. You can get a 7 way plug that plugs inline to the one on your bumper. Route it up the cavity where your tail light assembly goes and mount it just inside your tailgate.

Another vote for the B&W. The one I have now is the second one I have bought and probably will not ever buy any other brand. On my 07 classic it actually had wires ran up the driver side frame rail for putiing the light connector in the bed.
