Will it work on my 98 2500 chevy with a 3in body lift?
asked by: Mike S
The problem with putting a gooseneck hitch in a truck with a body lift is that the gooseneck hitch mounts to the frame, and as you know a body lift will lift the body higher off of the frame. Well, a gooseneck hitch installs onto the frame and the ball height is set for vehicles without a body lift.
So, if you were to install a hitch on a truck with a body lift the ball will not stick up far enough through the body for a gooseneck coupler to attach to it.
With a body lift you will not be able to install a gooseneck hitch unless you have something fabricated by a qualified technician, or if you lose the body lift. If you did a suspension lift instead you could still have a lift and you would be able to install a gooseneck hitch.
I attached an FAQ article on gooseneck hitches for you to check out also.
