Ball Displayed

The Hide-A-Goose gooseneck trailer hitch works to meet your heavy-duty towing needs while still allowing you to get full use out of your truck bed. The hitch installs beneath your vehicle to create a low-profile look. Even the safety-chain holders sit flush against your truck bed to take up as little room as possible. The ball easily secures in the hitch with a reinforced locking pin that is operated by a handle that installs in your truck's rear wheel well.


Handle and Storage

This hitch is called the Hide-A-Goose because of its convenient ability to hide the ball when you're not towing. To remove the ball, just pull the handle in the wheel well until it latches in the open position. Remove the ball, flip it upside down, and drop it back into the ball hole of the hitch. Then pull the handle again to release it from the open position and reengage the locking pin to secure the ball in the stowed position.


Magent Cover

Once you secure the ball in the stowed position inside the hitch, use the magnetic cover to conceal the ball hole. This cover prevents dirt and debris from getting into the ball hole. This will prevent buildup that could cause the ball to seize up in the hitch.

Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 Ram 2500

Today on our 2012 Ram 2500, were going to be taking a look at and installing the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, part number 9464-57. You could see that our Hide-A-Goose has a protective cover thats going to go over the top once you dont have it in use. Its going to be tucked down on the inside, and all we go to do is pull out the handle, lift it up, flip it over, and drop our pin back in place. Once our pin is locked in, were going to have a 25,000-pound towing capacity with 7,500 vertical weight limit, and a 2-5/16-inch bolt. Your safety tie-downs would be on either side, and its going to be secured with a 3-1/2 plate that goes down and secures to our frame of our vehicle. Now, you see on the drivers side, youll have your handle operation with plenty of room to grab it from either side. Pull out and rotate it.

You can set it off to the side, so you can flip your ball over, and simply slide it back in. Once its locked in, it wont come out, unless you pull on it. First thing well need to do in our installation is lower down the exhaust. Theres going to be 3 to 5 hangers that you will need to lower. Theres going to be one located here above this bracket, and two up here in front of the muffler. Well go ahead and place our cam buckle strap as an added safety measure, so the exhaust doesnt fall down completely.

Go ahead and tighten it up to where it will catch it when it comes down. Now, well get some spray lubricant and spray our exhaust hanger isolators. Theres going to be one located on each side of the muffler. On the back side of the exhaust hanger, youre going to have your retaining clips. Go ahead and pry those off, and then you should be able to slide the exhaust hanger rubber piece right off. It looks like were going to have another one that were going to need to remove just in front of the other two that we just removed right before the cat.

Spray down a little lubricant, and were going to continue to remove the exhaust isolators, one located here, and then theres also another one located right in front of it here until that exhaust drops down, so we can access the back frame of the vehicle with ease. Now, were going to go ahead and lower down the spare tire. Rotate the in-cap to the side, and press it back. Now, for an easier installation, go ahead and remove the spare tire heat shield. This will make it easier for when were placing the cross pins for the Hide-A-Goose. Youre going to have 3 bolts, and youre going to have to get two from the inside here as well as the two located right here. Now, were going to go ahead and set the heat shield off this side, so it can be reinstalled after were done.

Two things now that are going to make it easier for us to get in there and see everything, and tighten down the hardware is one is going to be to remove the inner fender well, and then two, more of those bolts here. Lets go ahead and get an extension to get those. Now, were going to go ahead and repeat that same process on the passenger side, and then well come back, loosen up and remove the rear tires. Well go ahead and pull back this inner fender well, and drop it out, so we have better access to the frame underneath the bed. If any of the fasteners fall off, go ahead and make sure you snap those back in place. Now, for better access to this space, its going to be to remove this little ground strap here. Well just unbolt it, and then press it back through just to give us a little bit more space under here to work our cross members. Note that this is only going to be a temporary removal, and then well place it back after were done. Next thing well go ahead and do is place our rear cross member in, which will look like this. Youll first take the threaded side with the plates, tilt it down towards level, and place it in first towards the drivers side. Once you get it up in, go ahead and rotate it back around, and slide it back. Now, well go ahead and slide up in our next one. Again, its going to be the reverse way as the other one. We dont really have a whole lot of room to work it in here, so we need to get this bracket that weve already placed in to lay up flat, so weve got a little bit more room to work and were not festered around with it. What well do is well go ahead and put a clamp up just to help keep it in place, and well work it around, and get it up in there. Once we have it up in, well slide it over, and then rotate it up into the same spot as the other one. Go ahead and remove that clamp, and now, well move on to the next step. Well go ahead and place it on our frame brackets on the outside, lining them up with the 2 threaded bolts on the other side. Youll take your 2-frame bracket, place the cut up or on this piece here, lining up the hole, and on the backside, well do the same thing, lining up that back hole. Once you have it through, well go and place on that flat washer, lock washer, and 5/8-inch hex nut. Now, well go ahead and do the front side as well, placing the hardware on like we did before. Well go ahead and repeat that same process on the passenger side. Go ahead and place your front and new 00:07:18 bracket around the frame into location. If you need to, you can pop out the fasteners that are securing the lines on the backside. Once you have it squared, well go ahead and take our -inch nut and -inch conical tooth washer, placing the teeth side of the conical tooth washer over the top of the bolt, and then threading on our -inch hex nut. Now, well go ahead and move to the backside of it, and do this back bracket. All right. Now, well go ahead and repeat that same process on the passenger side. Now that we have our frame brackets loosely installed, well go ahead and place through our fish wire to drop in our block and extra-alignment bolt back here, so were going to need to slide it back a little bit. Once we have it slid back, well go ahead and place our fish wire in with the coil towards this side, running it back towards the back of the vehicle down the frame, and coming out the bottom hole here. Once you have it out the hole, well go ahead and place in our spacer block, and our carriage bolt will actually sit through that, so we can fasten the conical tooth washer and the hex nut on the bottom side, so well place our block through, being careful not to pull in the other side. Then, well thread on our carriage bolt on to the coils, and pull it up and through, pulling it back out the bottom side up here. Pull off the fish wire. Place your conical tooth washer over the top. Press against the side if you need to, to hold it in place, and then thread on your hex nut. Once you have it started, well go and move over to the other side to get it aligned as well. Now, before we get everything tightened down, were going to go ahead and reattach our ground wire, so we dont forget. Well go ahead and tuck it back over the top just as it was before. Now that we have the side rail frame brackets and the cross members temporarily installed, were going to come back up here in the bed of the truck, so we can drill our hole through the bed. Now, keep in mind that for your bed liner, youre going to have to add that distance as well where you make your measurement. For a 6-foot bed, its going to be 44 inches, and for an 8-foot bed, its going to be 46. Also, were going to need to get our center to center, and then find that location. With our bed liner, were going to add a sixteenth of an inch, and then were going to measure from the side here. In between the fender wells, well go ahead and mark that measurement with our paint pen. Once we have it marked, well go ahead and get that 44-inch measurement again with that added sixteenth of an inch to get our center. Now that you have that center, well take a -inch drill bit and drill our pilot hole. Now that we have our pilot hole drilled, well now measure out our Hide-A-Goose hitch hole, and then use a hole saw to drill it out to its final diameter size. Go ahead and insert your pilot bit down in the hole that we already drilled. Slowly start your hole. Now, were going to go ahead and come to the bottom side where we have the cross members. Were going to take our 5/8-inch carriage bolts and place them through before we rotate it up to place in our Hide-A-Goose. Youll place the carriage bolts on the outermost square holes from the topside. Now, well go ahead and place our Hide-A-Goose in the hardware. Remember that the heighted 00:12:10 hitch hole will go towards the front bracket of the vehicle. Once we have the hardware through the front 2 holes, well go ahead and get an extra set of hands to help us thread it on. Spin the other bracket into place. Now, go ahead and take the conical tooth washer with the teeth towards the plate. Go ahead and fasten your 5/8-inch hex bolt to the end. All right. Now with all four in place, were then going to drill our 5/8-inch hole through the inner slot holes located here and here, but well go ahead and start with the smaller bit and gradually increase it in size till we get to our 5/8-inch diameter. Now, well go ahead and place our carriage bolts through the holes that we just drilled in the top bed, making sure that theyre down on the inside of the corrugation in a lower part. Now, down here on the bottom side, you can still see that everything is loose as far as our bolts go. Were going to place that conical tooth washer over the top of the carriage bolt that we just passed through. Thered be a little bit of thread, and go ahead and place on that 5/8-inch hex nut. Well go and leave the 2 5/8-inch hex bolts loose on the bottom side, so we can adjust our head. All right. Now, well go ahead and tighten down all of our bolts on the bottom side. Now, well start off by torqueing the -bolts here on the frame bracket and U-bolts to manufacturers specifications first. Now, well go ahead and repeat that on the other side. Now, well go ahead and torque down our cross members to the frame brackets. Now, well go ahead and torque down our hitch to our cross member brackets to manufacturers specifications. Now that we have our hitch torqued down, well go ahead and drill the 9/16-inch holes through the bottom side of the corrugation on the inner most side of the hitch. This will allow for our U-bolts to drop down from the top to use our tie-downs. Now, well go ahead and take our U-bolts, place them downwards and through. Now, well go ahead and take our flat washer, place it over the U-bolt, place our spring on next, and then our nut on the bottom side. Well go ahead and repeat that for the other three. Now, well go ahead and tighten down our nuts until the nut is flushed with the bottom side of the U-bolt. Now, well go ahead and place our orange piece over the end of the handle and down to give us better grip on our handle. You want to leave this side open that has a single hole and a slight bend. This side will go through, attaching to the pin. Line up the holes, and place in your clip. Once you have the clip in, were good to go ahead and close it up, and open it. Now, well go ahead and slide all of our exhaust isolators back into place. Use a little bit of lube, and spray it over the shafts if you need to, to make it slide on easier. Put the exhaust up into place and slide them right on. Well go and repeat that for all the other ones that we took off at the beginning. Now, well go ahead and slide our passenger side fender in place since weve now gotten the exhaust reattached. Once you have it back into place, line up all your holes and reattach your fasteners. Now, what were going to need to do on the drivers side is fit our fender well up inside, and then mark off where our handle access is going to be. That way, well trim out the fender, so that well have access to the handle to close and open our gooseneck. Now, what well do is only attach the 2 back ones. All right. Now, well go ahead and mark the bottom side at the maximum distance that it can come out. Then, well rotate it around, and do the same thing on the other side. Go ahead and trim it out, so well have access. Now, well go ahead and score with the razor blade across the top. Now with our fender wells back in place and our exhausts re-secured, were going to place back up our heat shield for our spare tire. Go ahead and line it up with that back alignment tab, so it will rest. Then, well go and take our 10-millimeter bolts and secure it back in place. Now, with the heat shield back in place, lets put our tires back on and raise that spare tire back up into place. That will do it for our review and installation of the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, part number 9464-57, on our 2012 Ram 2500.

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

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

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


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

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


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

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

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


Comments

Hitch works great, no problems with the ball or linkages freezing up. Everything seems good. Have used it to pull a cattle trailer 12+ times this year.

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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 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

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


Comments

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!

In the words of Ace Ventura - Pet Detective... Like a Glove! I was in UPS delivery zone 1 - which was suppose to be 1 day delivery.... Boom - Nailed it. Got it when they said I would. I'm sure the manual says this some place but don't forget to wear safety googles! (not to be confused with the interweb search giant). My rustyish pup potty trained me in the eye before I said "self..." Anywho- i pooched my shopping cart order by originally ordering 2 of this hitches- only needed one. Called customer service and to my surprise- I got service! The super awesome representative only shipped 1 and credited my account and still got the order out the door in time for the UPS commitment. Will order again from these professionals again. Thank you etrailer!! 643630

The product arrived in about 2 days. When my husband opened it and went through the parts with the diagram he noticed that 2 carriage bolts were missing and had to go to Menard's to purchase them to complete the assembly. I sent an email about this matter to customer service. Other than that I was very pleased with the Draw-Tite hitch and ease of ordering and of course the free shipping! 638647

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


Went in relatively easy, relative because I did this by myself (at 72) without removing anything except a small bracket above the pumpkin. Just used a piece of all-thread (for the length) down through the bed and the hitch to hold it up to attach the bolts. Everything fit perfectly and it is easier with two people and removing half of the truck but I've always hated taking things loose if I don't have to, and besides, it was a challenge. Sprayed any bare metal with Trim (flat black) spray that matches the sprayed in bed liner perfectly. Biggest pain was having to buy both the hole saw and drill bit despite having an extensive (but obviously not complete) collection of both types. This is my first gooseneck that didn't have the turnover ball type, but it looks to be superior since you have to climb in the bed anyway to flip the ball and I've had problems with the ball freezing in place after having not been used in a while. 606582

This hitch was surprisingly easy to install on my 2013 F150 Crew Cab though I did have to buy a large holesaw for the job. I was able to use the 5,000lb Air Lift bags with the internal jounce bumpers but I don't think that the 2,000lb bags would work. Without the internal jounce bumpers that have to be put in a different place. I would have preferred to use the 2,000lb bags because I believe that they give a smoother ride. I also use a ball with a 5" setback for cab clearance on my horse trailer and 5.5ft bed combination with good results. It would have been nice if they made a hitch with a setback for shorter beds but other than that it is great. 582219

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Ram 2500
  • Both the Draw Tite Hitch # 9464-57 and the B and W hitch # BWGNRK1313 that are confirmed for your 2013 Ram 2500 would be an excellent choice. The U-bolt install of the # 9464-57 would make the install simpler than having to fishwire installation bolts like the B and W. The U-bolts will be very secure as well. Since you mentioned twice that you did not like the idea of cutting a bigger hole in the bed I believe the # 9464-57 would be the better choice for you as well.

The head on the 9464-57 is rated at 30,000 lbs but the lower capacity is due to the construction of the installation rails included. My contact said the 9464-35 is constructed of stronger steel.
