Video Transcript for Gooseneck Hitch Installation - 2008 Ford F-250

Today on our 2008, Ford, Fu50, we'll be installing the Curt Quick Goose 2 Gooseneck Hitch, part number C640-644. Let's go ahead and show you how to use the new Curt Quick Goose 2 Gooseneck Hitch. The red handle is our locking handle. Pointing straight down, the handle is in its locked position. We'll go ahead and turn it towards the front of the vehicle. Unlocking the handle allowing us to pull out, releasing the lock on the gooseneck ball. Then, by using the actuating handle, we'll go ahead and allow the gooseneck ball to come up through the gooseneck hitch. We can then go ahead and push the red handle back into place and re-lock it, locking a gooseneck ball up in a towing position. Then, once we're finished using the gooseneck ball, we'll simply unlock the handle, retract the lock and pull out on our actuating handle. As we get the actuating handle pulled out, we'll go ahead and push the hitch lock back into place and then lock the handle down, retracting the ball and locking it in a down position. Note, to begin our install, we've already gone ahead, and lower to remove the spare tire and both rear wheels.

This will allow us easier access to installing our new gooseneck hitch. Next, we'll begin into the bed of the vehicle. Measuring from the end of the bed as further instructions, marking our length inside the pick up bed. Then, we'll measure from wheel well to wheel well to find the center. Once we find the center, mark it with our paint marker. We'll then go ahead and drill out our hole. We'll be drilling out a hole large enough to fit the gooseneck collar up through. Next, we'll need to get the rear rock guard.

By the way, there are a total of four fasteners to remove it. We'll go ahead and remove these fasteners and set them beside for installation later. Next, we'll be lowering the exhaust. To lower the exhaust, we'll need to remove the rear hanger from the frame that is secured by two fasteners and the rubber isolator just above the muffler that goes over two metal hangers. To remove the rubber isolator from metal hangers, we'll spray the spray lubricant onto the metal hanger which will make the rubber isolator easier to remove. Now, with this application, the exhaust is already loose. To get it down and out of the way and make it easier for our install.

We'll go ahead and separate the exhaust tabs and remove the muffler and tail pipe and set it aside. Now, with that done, we'll move back into the wheel well. We'll be taking the head rails and sliding them onto the frame. Note, some applications like this one, it will be necessary to cut a V into the bed lip in order to slide the the frame fully into position. We'll go ahead and take a measurement, mark it out and then cut it out with our grinder. Note, on some applications especially this one, we'll need to remove the heat shield against the bottom of the bed as this is where our rails will sit. To do this, we'll just peel it away from the bed where it's adhered to. Now, with the heat shield out of the way, we'll go ahead and put the rear rail emplace. Now, with the rear rail emplace, we'll repeat the same process by putting the front rail in position. Now we're ready to install the side plate and C-shape mounting strap. As we put the mounting strap emplace, we'll slide the side plate underneath the C-strap and secure the C-strap with a half inch flange knot.

We can then take a half inch bolt and flange knot, flat washer and secure the C-clamp to the side bracket at the bottom. We'll install each of our fasteners finger tight until we have them all emplace. Next, we'll continue securing our side bracket to the frame. We'll install the 3 quarter inch bolt, flat washer and flange knot. The bolt and flat washer will go through the side bracket, through the frame and get secured on the inside with the flange knot. Keep in mind that each process we do on one side, we'll repeat identically to the other side. Now with these loosely installed, we're ready to go ahead and put the gooseneck head emplace. It's a good idea to get extra set of hands to help you install the half inch carriage bolt fasteners and half inch flange knots. As we're ready . head into position, we'll install the hardware into the front rail first. The carriage bolt will go through the rail and into the head and then can secure with the flange knot. Once again, we'll install each of these fasteners finger tight until we have all of our hardware emplace. Now, with the front rail secured we'll repeat the same process with the rear rail. Sliding the carriage bolt through the rail, into the head unit and then securing it with a flange knot. Now, we'll move back to the wheel well where we will secure the front and rear rails to the side bracket. We're using the half inch carriage bolt and flange knot. Now, with all our hardware emplaced, we can go ahead and tighten it then towards the specifications. We'll start by securing the gooseneck head to the rails or cross-arms. Once we've them secured towards specifications, we'll then go ahead and secure the side brackets through the frame. Next, we'll then secure the cross-arms or rails to the side brackets. Now, with everything tightened into our specification, we'll need to install the chain hold down. To install the chain hold down, we'll use the gooseneck as a template and drill a pile of hole going up through the gooseneck head into the bed of the truck. Now, with our pile of hole drilled out, we'll go ahead and get into the bed of the truck and drill down through the gooseneck head. We'll use a step in process, enlarging the bit size 00:07:10 as we go. Now, once we have our final size we can go ahead and drop the U-bolts emplace. Note, make sure that the U-bolts end up in the valley of the bed corrugation. Next, we'll move back underneath the vehicle. We'll need to install the handles into the gooseneck head. We'll remove the zip tie that secured the ball in shipping. Now, with the zip tie removed and our gooseneck ball in a down position, we'll go ahead and install the lock handle and spring. We'll sure the lock handle and spring with a bolt and nylon 00:08:01 lock knot provided. Next, we'll go ahead and install the actuating handle. We'll slide it into position and then secure it with the bolt and lock knot. Now, with the rods emplaced, we can go ahead and secure the chain hold downs. We'll be using a flat washer, then spring, a second flat washer and then the locking knots provided with the hold down kit. We'll install each fastener finger tight. Then, we'll go ahead and tighten them down. Now, with our chain hold downs tightened, we're ready to go ahead and re-install the exhaust. Note, before you can re-install the exhaust, you'll need to insert the spacer bracket to bring the exhaust down to create clearance for the tail pipe so it doesn't make contact with the new gooseneck hitch. We'll first install the spacer block. To do this, we'll loosen the knots and secure the center metal hanger for the exhaust. Once we've loosen them enough, we can go ahead and slide the spacer block emplace and then re-secure the fasteners. Now, on this application, we're still making contact with the U-bolt chain hold down. To compensate for this, we're going to go ahead and tighten down the chain hold down knots completely and then cut off any excess from the U-bolt. Now, once we've created the clearance necessary we'll go ahead and re-install the exhaust. Next, we'll go ahead and install the L-bracket at the tail pipe hanger. We'll reuse the manufactures hardware and additional 3 inch 00:10:31 carried bolt and flange knot provided with our install kit to secure the new L-bracket. Next, we'll go ahead and re-install any components that we've previously removed and with that we're ready to hit the road. That's for the install of the Curt Quick Goose 2 Gooseneck Hitch, part number, C640-644 on our 2008, Ford, Fu50. .

Review from a similar Quick Goose 2 in Gooseneck


Nice solid unit that will definitely last a lifetime but even new this unit is not very user friendly. I have it installed on a 99 c/k3500. Installation of the unit was easy but the 2 levers for raising and locking the ball are not well designed. if you pull the left handle to far, the ball gets stuck in the down position and you have to crawl under the truck and push it back up. The right handle is supposed to somehow lock it into position but I have yet to figure out a reliable system for doing that. I had to shorten both handles to clear the rear tire and with the tire blocking the handles it is difficult and dirty to operate them and usually you smash your hands when the levers do finally go into place. The rubber cap is worthless and generally ends up bouncing out. On my 2nd truck, I went with the style you put the ball in by hand and it is a much easier unit to operate. 681232

Review from a similar Quick Goose 2 in Gooseneck


Very easy to install, I did it by myself in under 2Hrs. Works great you just have to make sure you keep it clean which sometimes isn't easy if you haul any materials in your truck. Mine got stuck pretty good after hauling torn up concrete, the dust and small pieces jammed it up so the ball would not pop up. 316419

Review from a similar Quick Goose 2 in Gooseneck


Get a turnover ball and don’t be the sucker I ended up. I laugh every time I think of the convenience I thought I was getting by not having to climb in the back of the truck. I don’t know if mine is defective or if this device is actually a workout program mixed with an anger management exercise in disguise. I’ve been using it for a year now, but within a month I developed a strategy for getting my trailer hooked up. First I climb into the back of the truck to cut the duct tape off I’ve used to attach the worthless rubber cap which falls off every chance it gets, filling the mechanism with whatever you have in your truck. If you ever plan to do anything with the bed of the truck besides pulling your gooseneck, haul hay, a four wheeler, anything dirty it will definitely jam your ball. After the tape is off I fight the first lever, I yank, turn, pull, twist, bang, swivel, dance this lever into the exact position. I climb under the truck and cover myself with wheel grease and scum getting the thing to unlock. Then the second lever, to lift and drop the ball. Repeat the steps of the first lever with less twisting, but add climbing into the bed with a hammer, banging the ball, climbing underneath, banging the lift arm, banging underneath, shaking, bouncing and sweet talking this POS into the upward position. Stop to spit curse and wipe the sweat out of your eyes and clean any wounds you got banging your knuckles. Now repeat the first lever steps AGAIN, including going under, going up, and under and in the wheel well so far you find whatever you ran over the other day that made you say “hmm” all over the front of your shirt. Repeat in opposite order when you want to put it down. I’m so embarrassed about this hunk of junk that I stop on the side of the road a half hour before I get to anything I’ve got to pick up just so no one has to see me cursing, crying and throwing a tantrum getting this thing in place. Please don’t buy this item, you don’t deserve this kind of punishment. 707515

  • Can Fifth Wheel Rails Install on 2007 Chevy Silverado With Curt Gooseneck?
    The # C640-644 gooseneck you referenced is only a fit for certain year Ford Super Duty trucks and there is not a Quick Goose 2 Gooseneck that fits a 2007 Chevy Silverado. There is an underbed Curt gooseneck for this truck, part # C61652-652, but you would not be able to install fifth wheel mounting brackets and base rails with it.
