Installing the Blue Ox Diamond Underbed Gooseneck Hitch on a 1997 Ford F250 and F350 with Duraliner

Question:

Will the DH1202 Blue Ox Gooseneck trailer hitch work with a Duraliner -in bedliner?

asked by: Kyle K


Expert Reply:

You should not have any problems installing the Blue Ox Diamond Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, # DH1202, in your 1997 Ford Truck with a Duraliner bed liner. This is an underbed hitch which means all of the mounting points will be under the truck bed.

The only thing you will have to do to the truck bed is cut a hole in the truck bed and bed liner for the hitch ball and slots for the safety cable attachments. If the bed liner is too tall to allow the gooseneck to rotate properly you may need to cut a larger hole in the bed liner avoid interference from the bed liner while towing.

I have attached an article on gooseneck hitches and the installation instructions for you to check out.

It is recommended that you use Loctite Threadlocker 262, # LT37420, on all bolts during installation.
