Default Gooseneck hitch install

Installed a good neck hitch in my truck today.

I think next time I'll pay to have the I stall done. But it felt good when I got it finished.

It's a B&W Turnover ball.

Looks like you had a little more stuff to work around than the last B&W I installed but they aren't all that bad. Drilling that big hole in the bed is a little nerve racking though.
You aren't in the salt belt so you won't have as much trouble, but I would spray the ball shank and latch pin with silicone spray or lithium grease every time you flip it just to keep it from seizing up.
