I am going to need a gooseneck hitch (2 5/16")...unfortunately the truck doesn't have one already installed.......anyone ever install an aftermarket kit? Curious on how they mount up, and how tricky it can be....

b&w makes kits made to fit your truck and install in a couple hours. You can also add the companion if you want to tow a fifth wheel, or get the kingpin insert if you prefer a kingpin over a ball.

The B&W turnover gets my vote as well. Put one on my 06 work truck. The dealer told me it would be 5 hours and $400 to install it. Thats outrageous, so I tackled it myself. I took me about 2.5 hours. It was pretty easy...just have to notch out a tab (3rd gen) in the fender, cut the hole in the bed and bolt it in. The most difficult part was lifting the hitch into place. So if you do it yourself, have an extra set of hands available, and it will save some time and cussing.
