Hi,
I'm currently looking to install a gooseneck hitch in the bed of my 05 ram 3500. Just wondering if anybody has pros and cons for the different types of hidden ball set ups available.
Thanks,
Paul

There are a hundred threads on here about this. But my vote, and the majority here, will all vote for the B&W Turnover ball hitch.

I recently had my local shop install a GN plate. In the past they have always installed B & W Turnovers. This time, I didn't even discuss it and just dropped off the pick up to have one installed. They installed an Atwood flip flop piece of crap. I now have a 1/4 inch plate in my box. Also they cut a larger hole to accomodate the flipping motion of the ball. If you want any pics, let me know. Its too late now, but I would have preferred the B&W.

B&W makes a great hitch, my friend has one. Can't go wrong there. I have a Diamond Hitch in my '02, and I am also pleased with it. I think it is very comparable to the B&W, either one is a good tough hitch. Install was easy on my Diamond Hitch, I did it in my driveway (before I had a shop). :) Link here: Blue Ox

Just ordered my B&W today! Got it off Ebay, $288 delivered!!!! Brand new, from an ebay store.

I'd been checking around, the dealer wanted $575 installed and $430 over the counter brand unknown. One ebay store had a good price on what he called a "mopar brand" for just over 200 shipped, but when I called and told him I had a Megacab, that price went to 378 + 50 bucks shipping. Then there are a few ebay stores selling for 350 shipped, which I thought was pretty good until I found the guy for 288 shipped, any model of truck.

4 hours ago he had three left, better hurry!!!
