Image of truck bed with hitch ball installed

Even with the ball installed, the hitch takes up very little space in the truck bed. The rail system and gooseneck head unit is mounted under the bed. Only a 3-1/2" hole is required for the ball hole opening. Safety chain holders sit flush against truck bed floor.



Image of truck bed with hitch ball flipped over for storage

When not in use, the ball can be flipped over and inserted back into the hole. The low profile design makes for uninhibited truck bed access when your carrying other gear.

The ball hole can then be covered with the included magnet to help keep dirt and debris out.



Ball accessible in wheel well

The heavy duty handle with reinforced locking pin holds the ball in place and is easily accessible in the wheel well. To store the ball, simply pull the handle and twist it to secure in the open position. Then remove the ball, flip it over and slide it upside down back into the hole. After placing the magnetic cover, simply rotate the handle in the wheel well back to its starting position and the stowed ball will be secure.

Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Gooseneck - Below the Bed - 9460-49 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Reese Hide-A-Goose underbed goose neck trailer hitch with installation kit, number 9460-49. This product is for a Ford F-450 Super Duty with the eight-foot bed. It will not fit the cab and chassis models and it provides a hitch so you can tow a goose neck trailer. The head unit and the vehicle-specific rail kits will fit under the truck bed and the side mounting brackets here will attach to the vehicle's frame. Only the ball right here and the spring-loaded safety hoops will be visible in the truck bed. The rails and hardware are all mounted under the bed, all of this right here, and it allows for full truck bed access when the ball is stored. It includes a 2-5/16 of an inch that can be stored upside down in the bed when not in use, and I'll show you how to do that in just a moment. The ball has a round shank, which reduces rattle in the hitch, and the round sleeve and ball have a tighter fit than the square designs.

We'll go ahead and show you how to use that now. You grab your handle here, which would be accessible through the fender well. It provides convenient fender well access for the handle to disconnect the trailer hitch ball and the durable handle is very easy to grip. Just pull that out and then lift up a little and it'll catch right here on the side. You will pull the shank out and you can see there's a groove here and a notch on the inside, and right here is a ball or a bar so you can use that to lower that down. When it's not in use, you can place this magnet over the top to prevent any kind of dirt, grime, that sort of thing from getting inside of the sleeve. Then you would just turn that and that's in there solid.

Same thing when you want to take it out, just lift it up with the bar, line up the groove here with the notch in here, close that, and you're locked and ready to go. It includes safety chain attachment points that will sit flush in the truck bed, these right here and these are, again, these are spring-loaded. The vehicle-specific rail kits install very quickly very no drilling, welding, or bed removal required. It installs to the head unit with eight 5/8 inch diameter grade 8 carriage bolts, and that is these right here, and there's two more back here. It has an inaudible 00:03:01 coat base with a powder coat finish for superior corrosion resistance and it does come with a limited lifetime warranty. Once again, the ball size, 2-5/16 of an inch for the towing capacity please check your vehicle owner's manual. This unit is rated to match the manufacturer tow rating.

The head unit is rated for 30,000 pounds of gross towing weight with a 7,500-pound vertical load limit, but if your truck has a GTW of less than that, you need to go by the smaller number to ensure safer towing experience. The rails are rated to match the manufacturer tow rating as well. Quick installation tip, you're going to need a 3-1/2 inch hole for the hitch ball and 4-9/16 of an inch holes for the safety chain holders to ensure that this is a good fit for your truck. Finally, this is tested to vehicle equipment safety commission standards. That should do it for our Reese Hide-A-Goose underbed gooseneck trailer hitch with installation kit, number 9460-49. .

While initially I was frustrated with what was potentially going to be super slow shipping, the customer service at etrailer was fantastic. We ended up getting the hitch we ordered in a timely fashion and it came with easy to use instructions. The worst part was trying to cut the hole in the bed of the truck, but ended up working out fine. thank you etrailer! Excellent customer service. 553194

The box for the installation brackets was busted up (I blame the shipping company for that), but all parts were there. The hitch and brackets are very well made and went easy, but it did take a little longer than I expected. I am planning on putting another gooseneck hitch on another truck I have and will definantely use etrailer again. etrailer had the best price, it came quickly, and they handle quality products. 390721

Product is a great fit for my 2016 Ram 2500. The installation videos are dead on which allowed me to install the hitch myself. DIY savings was approx. $125. Tip: In addition to bending the wire on the nut plates, use plastic zip ties to secure the wires. This will absolutely prevent any rattling noise. 400447

Pretty good hitch, I’ve had and installed several gooseneck hitches and this one wasn’t bad to install. It’s well built and appears to exceed my trucks towing capacity, I advise to go ahead and lift the back of the bed up at least 2” to make it easier to install and align the hitch. I installed this on a 2018 GMC 2500 HD. 575037

Fast shipping. Everything fit perfect. Hardest thing is fishing bolts up through box frame. Need to use two screwdrivers to keep up off of bottom of frame. I installed by myself in 3-4 hours. 2 people could do it in 2. Second gooseneck hitch I have gotten from Etrailer. Will get next one frim them. I highly recommend. 166295

This hitch is exactly what we needed to pull our camper. Worked great, but not the easiest to install, especially using the instructions that come with the hitch. After watching a YouTube video, which gave a much better understanding, I was able to install the hitch with a better idea of what I was doing. Do to the lack of written instructions I am giving this a 4 star instead of a 5 star. 418586

My son and I bought the Hide-a-Goose set up for his 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 Mega Cab. The shipping of the 111 lbs. packages (came in 2 boxes) was fast! Upon arrival, the instructions were right-on and easy to follow. We took our time and the installation went off without a hitch(pun intended!). We purchased the "no drilling required" kit and the only holes needed were through the truck bed. George kept us updated and we really appreciate the guys at etrailer. I highly recommend their products and would most definitely buy from etrailer again! Thanks guys! Leon W. 246677

Easy install once you get past the kinda confusing drawings. The safety hooks are pretty short, I just have the nuts flush with threads but can't get the hooks under them. I will have to look for longer ones. Took 3 hrs to install with having to remove hard tonneau cover and bed liner and reinstalling and clean up. Thought it would be worse!! The isolation tape they send with the hitch is kind of cheesy, hopefully it works. Was a great price! 435890

Good hitch. Love the drop and lock ball way more than my old hide-a-goose turnover ball. Installed it myself and only had to unbolt the brake like bracket. Left spare tire and exhaust in place. Put the ball in the center piece and slid it up and had my neighbor hold it by the ball while I put the conicals and nuts on. 519709

It took me about a year to get around to putting it in... I didn't have to take out the exhaust like the video says. I have a 2012 short bed Cummins 4x4. Getting the bars in is fascinating. Everything is super heavy so you'll need help for sure. 564042

Hitch performs well. Nice heavy duty steel. I have 4 star bc the measurement for the hitch wasn't quite right on my truck. From end of bed to center was about an 1/8" off. I had to cut out some extra on the cab side of the bed. Once that was done it was perfect. The magnet Drawtite supplies is just pathetic. I threw it away and made my own cover. As far as performance and ease of use I would recommend. There is a YouTube video etrailer has that is also very helpful. I referred to it a couple of times the instructions didn't make sense or I just wanted to check direction and that I was using the proper bolts. In one part the instructions say to use a washer but in the video they do not. I chose to go without. If you just want a good reliable gooseneck hitch for a few $$ less this is the one. 433787

The only reason this product got 1 star is because I had to give it one star to rate it! Stupid system. The product I bought was the (Cequent) Draw-Tite 9460-48 gooseneck hitch. This is the worse product I ever bought. It is rated on everyone's website as having a 30,000 lb capacity. When you get the hitch you see all of these stickers on it saying DO NOT EXCEED 22,000 LBS. Initially the manufacturer said it was a mistake: they put the wrong stickers on it. When asked for new 30,000 lb stickers they admitted it was only rated for 22,000 lbs. I won't buy any Cequent Products ever. Or any of the Brand Names they sell. Draw_Tite is one of their brands. 315874

I have bought from etrailer for many years now. Many hitches from a 2005 Toyota highlander hitch and wiring, to a 2012 Chrysler town and country hitch and wiring, brake controller to my most recent one a 2008 dodge ram mega cab gooseneck hitch. Every part I have bought have fit without any modification. The YouTube videos are specially helpful. I've recieved my shipment a few days ago which was way faster then I expected. Today i woke up ready to install it, I read the instructions and watched the YouTube video went under my truck bed and started working on it. I did mess up on the hole for the ball but that was my oops. Very satisfied. 501465

Ordered the hide a ball gooseneck hitch I had it in 4 business days with the free shipping, and if that wasn't good enough I found a cheaper priced hitch on another site after I bought it, and etrailer refunded me the difference plus 5% and lowered the price online so that the customers are getting the best bang for the buck with hands down the best customer service I have encountered yet. As far as the hitch goes it comes with plenty of instructions and all the hardware and took a buddy and I 2 hours from start to finish to complete. Great product, great service 168992

Fairly easy to install. I had to drop the spare tire and remove the heat shield, but once I did that I had plenty of room to work. You have to install the frame rails from in between the truck frame over top of the rear differential. You cannot slide them in from the side of the truck. Cutting the hole through the truck bed correctly is tricky. Mine was off about a 1/4 inch. Use a bi-metal hole saw and you'll pop right through. The rest installs pretty straight forward. 368453

Great product, I watched etrailers videos on installation of the hitch before it arrived and began disassembley of the truck, the video is very helpful in understanding the instructions with the hitch, the hitch arrived early in the day on the arrival date etrailer gave me, so I was able to finish installation that day. Thanks etrailer, Jason 463727

Very please with the customer service and the hitch! I called etrailer.com to verify the hitch would fit my 2005 Dodge Ram 3500 dually, as I wasn't entirely sure the application was the same for a standard bed and a dually. Lindy was extremely helpful, and I was able to place my order with her right over the phone. The hitch arrived on time, and I was able to install it with no significant problems. I say 'significant problems', as the custom exhaust installed by the previous owner was in the way, but that's a problem with my truck, not the hitch. A recommendation: get a computer, or tablet, or phone, and use the video for installation. The video was (by far!) the best explanation on how to install the hitch. I used both the video and the written instructions, and occasionally the written instructions made me scratch my head. The video immediately cleared up any confusion. A word of caution, though, don't throw out the written instructions. They have the measuring distance for drilling the holes in the bed and the torque specs for the bolts. The whole installation took about four hours, from pulling the truck into the garage to putting everything away after installing the hitch. Most of that time was trying to maneuver around the non-standard exhaust, though. If my truck had the factory exhaust, I figure it would have been about two to two and a half hours for installation. The only tool I had to get was the correct size hole saw for drilling out the bed to install the ball. Everything else in the installation just requires basic hand tools and a decent socket set. Overall, it was an easy installation, and a great product. I would highly recommend this hitch, and will purchase it again if, or when, I get another truck. 504530

Great product at a great price! I measured out the 3.5" hole location as the directions said for a 8 ft bed on my 2010 Ram 3500 4X4 quad cab. I drilled the hole and deburred, Removed the rear fender well panels and proceded to slide the rails over the chasis. I had to bend the steel flange where the bed is put together during fabrication to have enough room to fit the rail between the bed and the chasis. This was only done on one side in one location. The rails slid right in and I continued on with the install. It was a little hard by myself but I managed. I did not have a lift and was lying on my back under the truck half the time. I did not have to remove my rear tires, raise the bed or remove exhaust to install. I did notice that I could have drilled the 3.5" hole about 3/8" to 1/4" less than the specified distance for perfect alignment on the chasis but all worked out well and it tows great! I'm very satisfied with my hitch and the experience with Etrailer, Thanks Etrailer! 182288

The product itself seems to be ok, my main problem was with the installation instructions, namely the measurement as to where to drill the hole in the bed of a 2008 Ford F250 crew cab diesel short bed. I first watched and used etrailer.com's video instructions where they installed this same hitch on a 2008 Ford F250 diesel just like mine so I thought it would be pretty accurate. Well it was except for the most important part, the measurement as to where to drill the hole in the bed. On the video it said drill at 47 7/8". I should have double checked the instructions from draw-tite but felt etrailer's video would be correct. It wasn't though. After drilling the hole and realizing it was off I looked at draw-tite's instructions which said drill hole at 46 3/16" so luckily I was able to use the hole saw again to very carefully drill a hole at 46 3/16" only to find out on my truck this was wrong also as it was too short! I was able to make it work by trimming the edges where the two holes met and so now I have an oval hole instead of a circle. I measured the center of the hole after installing it and I should have drilled the hole at around 46 5/8". If I was to do it again I would have installed the plate under the bed and tightened it up and marked on the underside of the bed the center of the hole. Then removed the hitch plate and used a punch or small drill bit to drill up from bottom of bed to mark center of hole. Just make sure you know where the center is before you drill and don't just rely on the measurement given in the instructions. Luckily this was not a new truck with a nice bed and I had a plastic bedliner that covered up my mistake! Probably should have went with the B&W my buddy installed in his truck with no problems! 160419

Excellent product, easy to follow directions. Videos was great help. Installers in videos make it seem a simple install. I would say if you haven't installed one before it will most likely take more time than expected. Take your time and follow directions step by step. Some unexpected encounters with my truck was a plastic channel than ran along bottom of wheel wheels on both sides that had wiring running thur them. Had to lower to install fasteners. The cross members have threaded studs on end that are painted. Take a wire brush and remove paint from the studs so nuts will go on easy. 57665

Very pleased with the simple design. I Choose this hitch based on the cross bar and frame plate design. It looked easier to install than some other brands, and it was, a simple painless install. The cross bars easily slipped over the frame rails and under the pickup bed without a fus. The cross bars have threaded ends built in (like bolts welded in the corners of the angle steel) that allow you to loosely hang the side brackets off the cross rails while getting everything fitted. (so you don't need 3 hands) The U-Bolts for the frame rail helps avoid having to drill holes in the frame for additional bolts. The ball design has good clearances to the pocket so this ball should not be getting rusted in place. The simple spring loaded pin lock for the ball also has good clearances and just pulls straight in and out of the ball to lock and unlock from the wheel well handle. Flipping the ball over to "hide away" means the bed can still be free and clear for loading materials. Cutting the 3.5" hole in the bed was made simple by accurate easy measurement instructions and a readily available hole saw from the hardware store. The carriage bolt hardware means you don't need a wrench on the backside of the bolt when tightening the nuts. Great Product, excellent design, easy to install and use. 431243

Decent hitch, not the first Draw-Tite product I've used. Designed well, plenty of room for adjustment built into the slots and holes of the parts. It's built heavier than I will ever be able to tow with my '07 Tundra. We're buying a 25 foot fifth wheel camper with a gooseneck adapter. Gooseneck hitches are supposed to be better for driving off road, which is a big plus for me. I have over 1000 feet of rutted gravel road and driveway to get the camper to our little retreat in the woods! I haven't towed the camper yet, but I will add comments when I do! It would have been easier to install with a lift versus working from a creeper, but it still only took four hours! I'm sure it would have been easier on a new truck as well, not as much rust! The drawing and instructions were good, but could have explained which bolts went where a bit better. I did figure it out after a bit. Worst part was fixing all the other stuff that I found when I rolled under the truck! Only negative is the magnetic "cap" to keep the dirt out. Ridiculous! It's a refrigerator magnet! Why put that cheap thing in with such a heavy duty piece of equipment? I will figure something out to cover the hitch and plug the hole in the bed. 391215

Had to remove the hitch when I had the frame replaced on my Tundra, so I had to install the hitch again! The hitch is in great shape after about 2500 miles of pulling a 6000 pound trailer. It works as advertised, was a good price, and got shipped fairly quick. If youre even slightly mechanically adept, you should have no problems with the install. Even if youre not that handy, watch videos online to figure it out! As far as the cheap magnetic cap, I found a large freeze plug and painted it black to match the bed lining! Works great!

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose in Gooseneck


Hitch seems to be built fairly well as far as the head and rail kit. The side plates for the frame are not even as thick as my frame rail. Didn't like that. Also a major turn off to this hitch, on my truck, a 2001 dodge 2500 short bed, the carriage bolts that hold the head to the rails, the heads hit the bed floor, enough to where the bed does not sit flush on the frame. 4 1 inch holes had to be drilled in the bed to let the bolt heads through. Also used a hare bigger hole saw than 3.5 to give some wiggle room. But the bolts hitting the floor needs to be addressed by draw tite. Wouldn't recommend for a dodge pickup 191838

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose in Gooseneck


The customer service was spectacular which is great to find nowadays. The hitch I had a couple issues with however. Issue 1 was the the u-bolts for the safety chains are to short. I hooked up my trailer jumped in the back and couldn't get the chains in the loops without taking the nuts off the bolts putting on the chains and having my girlfriend push them down while i put the nuts on (I have a plastic bedliner which might have been the main issue here). Issue 2 is that online it says that I can tow 30,000lbs with this hitch. However when this hitch came in it said in multiple places in the mounting kit not to exceed 17,000lbs which makes me kind of nervous since I have to pull some heavy loads On the bright side though the hitch installed easier then i thought it would and I found etrailers YouTube video very helpful for it. I used it to pull a 13,000lb trailer this weekend and had no issues with it I'd probably buy this hitch again just because it's significantly cheaper then the blue ox and b&w hitches but I'd like them fix the above mentioned issues 386546

Nice kit, tough job w/out a lift but can be done, keep in mind the U bolts for breakaway chain attachment are different and s/b installed per the instructions to avoid interference with the fuel tank, etc. Figured it would include electrical kit but was not, likely due to too many configuration options and truck types. 184333

Great hitch at a very reasonable price. The installation was fairly straightforward but I suggest watching video from E Trailer for a more comprehensive approach. 563987

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose in Gooseneck


Ordered the hitch and brake controller on Friday morning and received them Tuesday afternoon. I purchased a hole saw during the weekend before the hitch arrived. I began installing late that night and finished the following morning. Installation was a breeze and went just as depicted in the videos provided on the website. Great product and great service! Most places were going to charge me $800-1000.00 for a goose-neck hitch, brake controller and installation. etrailer.com saved me several hundreds of dollars! Thanks! 556627

The hitch arrived in good condition and all the parts were there. It installed without any issues. However, one of the nuts for the cross rails provided was the wrong size forcing a trip to the hardware store for a suitable replacement. Pretty hard to spot the size difference unless you were really looking. Otherwise, so far so good. 546947

  • Center Hole Location for Installing Draw-Tite Gooseneck Hitch # 9460-48 on 2002 Ford F-350
  • The Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Hitch # 9460-49 referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 2002 Ford F-350 with the long bed. For your long bed truck (and the short bed models as well) the center hole will indeed be cut 46-3/16 inches from the rear of the bed and centered between the wheel wells. I have attached the complete installation instructions that you can also reference.

  • Gooseneck Installation Kit for a 2010 F-450 with 8 Foot Bed Crew Cab DRW 4 x 4
  • The correct Gooseneck hitch and installation kit for a 2010 F-450 with 8 bed, Crew cab, DRW, 4 x 4, is the Reese Gooseneck, # 9460-49. I have linked an installation video of a Hide-A-Goose installation on a 2008 F-250 that should be similar to the installation on your F-450, but the install kit is different. You may also be interested in wiring for the bed of your 2010 F-450. The in bed wiring harness, # PK11893-11932, will plug inline with the factory wiring and install in the bed...

  • Where to Drill the Hitch Ball Hole for the Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck Hitch on a 2014 Ford F-250
  • I assume you are referring to the 3-1/2" diameter hole for the gooseneck hitch ball on the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with Installation Kit part # 9460-49. If that is the case then on your 2014 Ford F-250 with the 8' long bed you will need to mark and drill a 1/4" hole 46-3/16" from the rear of the bed and centered between the wheel wells. Using a 3-1/2" diameter hole saw, enlarge the pilot hole to the final diameter hole size. When you get to the point of drilling...

  • Availability of Adapter for B&W Companion to Fit Round Gooseneck Receiver on a 2006 Ford F-350
  • I believe you are referring to a Tow Ready gooseneck hitch which was rebranded as "Draw-Tite" like part # 9460-49. There is a solution for you to use the sliding B&W Companion # BWRVK3400-5W in the short bed of your 2006 Ford F-350 but unfortunately there are no adapters for it to fit the round gooseneck receiver you currently have. Instead you will need to install the B&W Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1108-5W which has the squared receiver you are needing. If you would rather not swap...

  • Recommended Draw-Tite Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for 2015 Ford F-250 Diesel
  • For your 2015 Ford F-250 Diesel truck that does not feature the factory rail kit, I recommend the Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 9460-49. This Draw-Tite hitch features a removable ball that can be dropped back into the hitch for storage to allow for complete bed access. It has a 30,000 pound towing capacity and a magnetic cover to protect the ball hole from dirt and grime. The included mounting hardware will use existing holes in the truck's frame, which means...

  • Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for a 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
  • For your 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD with a Duramax the correct Hide a Goose hitch and install kit would be the part # 9465-34. This would be the correct kit regardless of your bed length. The # 9460-49 is for a Ford truck so I would not recommend it for you. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.
