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.
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.
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.

Today were going to review part number 9464-35 this is the Draw Tite Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with the installation kit. This kit is design to fit the Dodge Ram 1500, 2500, 3500 models with the six foot and eight foot beds. What you want to do is to determine the years that will fit in the models is if you go to the product page for this part number. At the bottom of the page therell be a listing of the models that this will fit the years and the models of Dodge Ram with this kit would fit on to. Now, this Underbed Gooseneck Hitch when installed on your vehicle you only have the ball and the safety chain loops that are visible in the truck bed. The rails and hardware, mounting brackets are all mounted under the bed.
You wont be able to see those in the truck bed. This will allow for full truck bed access when your ball stored. It does include this 2-5/16 ball that can be stored upside down in the bed when not in use. Just want to show you that right here this handle is what will release the ball. Right now its in the straight up position that means the handle cannot be pulled.
When this is installed this handle would be in your fender well. If you just push that handle down that will release it and allow you to pull it out and theres a little notch there that would stick on to that allow you to just pull up and remove the hitch ball. This is a 2-5/16 hitch ball and when you want to store it all you got to do is turn it upside down, drop it in to place, and its hidden now. Then just release the handle put it back up so the handle cannot be, and then it will lock that hitch ball in. Then they also include a nice magnetic cover that you can lay up over that keeps any dirt and grime from falling in to where the hitch ball is located.
A nice thing about this is, let me just show you. This hitch ball has a nice round shank, right here if you notice that will reduce the raddle in the hitch, the round sleeve and the ball have a tighter fit than any of the square design Goosenecks. Again, Im going to show you theres a little groove on this side and you have to line that up, theres a little pin that sticks out. It lines up that way if you turn it and try to get it in it wont fit that way, just line the screw up with the pin in there, that way it will line it up to allow the handle to go in and lock it in to place. Again, this handle you do have convenient fender well access to this handle to disconnect the trailer hitch ball.
This handle does have a nice easy grip to it. This Gooseneck also includes the safety chain attachment point right here that it flush in the truck bed. They are spring loaded so when you go to attach your safety chains you can just pull up on it, attach the chain, let it go. When you remove your safety chains and you let it go it will just pull right back down against the truck bed. Now, on this it is a vehicle specific rail kit thats install thats included with this that helps your Gooseneck installed very quickly. There is no drilling, welding, or bed removal required. As you can see this mounting brackets on the side, we have installed here a couple of the you can see the U-bolt this is what itll tighten up around your truck frame, these mounting brackets will attach to the truck frame, it makes for an extra strong hold and a quick install. The Gooseneck Hitch itself is attached to these rails with the four, five, eight inch diameter grade eight garage bolts. All the pieces have a eco base with a black powder coat finish for superior corrosion resistance. These parts are made in the USA, they do come with a limited lifetime warranty. Again, this ball size is 2-5/16. The towing capacity you will need to see your vehicles owners manual because this unit is rated to match the manufacturers tow rating. The Gooseneck Hitch head unit itself is rated at 30,000 pounds gross towing weight with a 7500 pound vertical load limit or pin weight. These rails are rated to much the manufacturers two rating in your owners manual. Installation tips basically when this is installed the only thing you have to drill in your truck bed is the 3 inch diameter hall for this ball to fit in to. The safety chain attachment point, these spring loaded U-bolt you just would drill four 9/16 holes that these would fit through. Thats all that require of drilling holes in to the truck bed.This part is tested to Vehicle Equipment Safety Commission Standards which is VESC-19. Again, just to show you, you can pull the hitch ball out, just turn it, drop it in to place, at the handle turn it up so the handle is lock, the ball wont come up, put the magnetic cover on. Youd have nothing, have full truck bed access. Now, when you go to use it just turn the handle down, release it, pull up, flip it over, its that easy to go.That should do it for the review on part number 9464-35 the Draw Tite Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with the installation kit. .

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

Hitch and installation kit installed with no trouble. I didn't even have to drop the exhaust on my '08 Ram 3500 DRW. I was very happy with the fit and it appears to be a very durable unit. The cable I purchased with the hitch also worked as advertised and instructions were clear and kit seems a very high quality. Overall, very happy with this purchase. 216111
For not knowing and never putting a gooseneck hitch in before after reading the instructions and figuring out how things work in went in easy the only problem I had was getting the ball to line up with the hole in the bed of the truck but a couple good hits from a rubber mallet and it popped right in. Works great and looks great will get a lot of use on the farm. 208650

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

I have installed quite a few hitches in customers trucks. This hitch is very straight forward and easy to put in. You don't have to drill any holes, it's all bolt in. If you are familiar with installing these, one person and a helper can usually tackle this job in less than 2 hours. The hitch is well made and all the parts are powder coated, so rust is not an issue. The ball is hardened and chrome plated, and is very easy to remove and flip over if you need the room in the bed. To top it off Etrailer has the most reasonable prices I have found and always free shipping. I would recommend this product to another person. 352808
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

Great gooseneck hitch. I pulled my trucks limit with the hitch and towing has never felt so good. I will never go back to tag trailer again. The hitch is sturdy, well designed. I would recommend that anyone buying a hide a goose, that they frequently shift the lever and pull the ball out. Keep it clean to help prevent seizing up. Very useful if you also need the bed of your truck unobstructed. Customer service was top notch! UPS's delivery however... could use some better handling practices. Hands down best hitch I have ever installed and used. 177955

after waiting two weeks for another on-line company to ship the hitch I order, then being told three more weeks for it to be shipped I cancelled order and reorder from etrailer and received it in three days, box was torn open but every thing was there. It did not take 90 minutes about 3 hours still not bad. Hitch looks good have to wait to try it 299571
Great product, solid with a stout design. Easy install with the help of their well put together instruction video. The hitch was delivered on time but the packaging was a little rough. After we opened the box we noticed the ball was missing. After contacting the folks at eTrailer, they sent out a replacement, no questions asked. I would recommend eTrailer and this product to anybody looking to install a new gooseneck hitch on their truck. 336741

This item looks great ordered and recieved in 3 days. Can't wait to install.. I will recommend etrailer to my friends. Will b looking to purchase brake box soon they have a lot of options for my truck. 171775
I gave you Guys 100% for quality and service. Excellence and professionalism. My first time buying a Dodge Ram, known nothing about Hitches. And because of the step by step information, I install this Hitch perfectly also the Trailer Brake Controller. You Guys save me $1,600, you're my source and I will recommend you Guys to everyone. Thanks again!!!! 159236
Hitch is outstanding unit and would highly recommend to all. Installation is 50% easer to install with a hydraulic left instead of crawling around on a floor creeper. There is no need to cut or remove anything on your truck except for the ball opening, just hard to muscle laying on your back. But guess what all gooseneck installations are this way. 284101

I have used this same gooseneck hitch before and know that the quality of the item is great. The shipment and price through etrailer.com was definitely a 5 star they contacted me to check up with my shipment and the price was the best I could find. Very satisfied and will definitely be glad to do business with etrailer.com again in the future! 302393
by: Kelley KARS08/13/2016
Very Easy Install my 2011 instructions said to remove bed bolts but the 2012 video said no need so I followed the 2012 video and did not remove bed or wheels just spare and rear pipe after cat/muffler. slid right in like 2012 and bolted right up. Good Product and E trailer videos and instructions make it very easy DIY. 283442
by: mike ganassa06/12/2012
So far seems to be a good product. Went together well and fit right under the bed. Cant beat the price. Thanks E-Trailer 43802
by: Wayne S.09/29/2015
I installed this Gooseneck onto my 2004 Dodge Ram 2500. I had a little difficulty installing the cross members but other than that it was fairly easy to install. I've hauled our fifth wheel twice now and it works perfect. I very much recommend a gooseneck over a traditional fifth wheel. I also suggest air bags too. 228284
by: Charles D.12/11/2012
So far the hitch is working very well. Installation was relatively easy. A few notches in the bed seam and we were on our way. We installed two of them in the same model pickups and found that on the second one we didn't have to drop the exhaust pipes so installation was much easier. 61135
Received hitch in about 3 or 4 days; shipping was delayed due to weather. With the help of my wife I was able to install this hitch on my Dodge 3500 in about 2 hours. Only removed spare tire, did not have a lift and did not take the exhaust brcakes off. Went in pretty easy. 175864

The product is excellent!! couldn't be happier with the purchase!! Fast and friendly service and it was great to get a call to make sure verbally and first hand that the shipping address was correct!!! will definitely purchase from here again in the near future!!! 302916
by: Eric S.01/28/2012
Installation and fit were not quite as easy as the video on here made it look, but with two guys it was not terrible. Final product is awesome and looks nice. The little magnetic cover is kinda flimsy but i am sure i can make something a little more heavy duty. 30482
by: Phillip Patterson12/20/2016
Great product for the price! I installed it in my truck within a few hours at home. fit perfectly and the day after I installed it I pulled over 15,000 pounds and pulled great! Great instructions, and good quality just wish I was made in the USA! 326734
by: Jimmy E02/20/2017
Good product, exactly as described. There's was a fairly important detail missed in the install video, but I was able to get an answer from their technical dept in 30 minutes on a Sunday. Good customer service. 343820

Installed this by myself except for help to lift the ball hitch assembly into place and bolt it up. I did this in my garage with out a hoist or jack stands. I am 75 years old--you can do it too!! 291519
by: George P.03/06/2017

Easy installation all though the instructions make it seem otherwise. Well built product comes with everything you need to get your gooseneck on the road. 325125

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