Is this right For you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Prefer the chrome and black look to match with your truck
  • Like the flush, integrated handle on the hitch ball for a sleek look and snug fit

No, if you:

  • Like keeping your stuff nice and prefer having a hard case to protect the hitch ball and safety chain loops
  • Have safety chain hooks on your trailer with narrow openings - the loops are fairly wide at the top so you may have to get a couple shackles

Video Transcript for Reese Elite Series Underbed Gooseneck Hitch Pop-In Ball Kit Installation - 2020 GMC Sierra 3500

Hey everybody, how's it going Today, we're gonna be going over and showing you how to install the Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit here on a 2020 GMC Sierra 3500. So this is everything our kit is gonna come with. We get a nice handy storage case here. This is padded and it's also a soft case, so it's a little bit easier to store inside the vehicle when we're not using the it. We also get a center plug here for the gooseneck hitch opening. We get two safety chain attachments that go into the puck system.

And then finally, our two and five-sixteenths inch gooseneck hitch ball. So this is what everything is gonna look like installed in our truck here. Now, for starters, the hitch ball has a nice chrome plated finish there, so it's not gonna rust and it's got a nice shiny finish. In regards to our safety chain loops, these are actually gonna have a nice durable black powder coated finish, so they're not chrome plated. And the black powder coated finish just looks a little bit nicer though, if you ask me.

So the hitch ball is very easy to take out and install. I really do like the mechanism that they have. It's built into center of the hitch ball. You simply pull up and rotate either direction and then you can just pull it out. Then we could just throw this in our carrying case and leave it inside the vehicle.

Or we could actually leave it in the truck bed. Now there is one important note I wanna make, that if you guys do leave your hitch balls in the truck bed when you're not using them, and you don't have a ton of cover anything covering the hitch ball, make sure you leave a good amount of grease on here. I can't tell you how many times I've heard of people getting these things stuck because they leave them in their truck bed exposed to the elements and they don't grease them. If you do that, it's a sure fire way to get this thing stuck and they are really hard to get out. So make sure that you just take proper care of your equipment and you won't have any issues.

So our hitch ball here is gonna be an industry standard two and five-sixteenths inches diameter. So that's gonna work with most gooseneck trailers. Now, this entire kit has a 30,000 pound gross trailer weight rating, so that's gonna be more than enough here for your 3500. You shouldn't have to worry about this kit being the weak point in your towing setup by any means. So now that we've gone over the kit, let's show you how easy it is to install. We'll start our installation by installing our hitch ball. So in the top, you're gonna get a little release lever here. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna pull up on that center section and then rotate out, and it should hold like that. This is going to unlock the mechanism so we can install it into the gooseneck opening in our truck bed. Now once it sits down in there, all we need to do is just rotate this to either side. This is gonna drop down into place and it's gonna be locked. You can see here by pulling up, we cannot remove it. It does, however, rotate. For our safety chains, these are equally easy to install. We're gonna have a tab in the center here. We're gonna pull up. Then we're just going to align the tab here, drop it into place, and rotate it to lock. This should then fall back down, as you can see here, it's nice and secure. And then for our safety chain tabs here, very easy. We actually just gonna prop these into place. That's gonna lift open this intersection. Then we rotate. That's gonna fall back down, and now they're locked. That'll complete our look and installation of the Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit here on our 2020 GMC Sierra 500..

  • Short Gooseneck Hitch Ball Needed for Towing 5th Wheel with 2021 GMC Sierra 2500
    The B&W Ball and Safety Chain Kit # BWGNXA2061 is taller than the Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit # RP23FR, which is only 3-7/8" from the bottom of the flange to the top of the hitch ball (see attached photo). If you're wanting to use a hitch ball type setup then you'll also need to swap out your standard pin box for a goosebox so it couples directly to the hitch ball. If you let me know what pin box number you currently have (like 1621 for example) I can help you find a replacement...
