Video Transcript for B and W Hitch Ball - Gooseneck Hitch Ball - BWGNXA2005 Review

Today we're going to review part number, BWGNXA2005, this is the B and W replacement hitch ball for the B and W turnoverball on their gooseneck hitch, part number BWGNRK1309. The ball diameter on this is 2-5/6ths, it has a weight capacity of 30,000 pounds. This replacement hitch ball is only designed to fit on the B and W turnoverball gooseneck trailer hitch, part number BWGNRK1309, and that part number is designed for the Dodge Ram 1500 truck, starting in 2009. The reason this one will only work on that hitch is because the size of the shank, from the center of the locking pin hole to the center of the base is shorter than the standard size hitch ball that comes on all the other turnoverball gooseneck hitches. This is a square ball base, as you can see here, prevents the ball turning in the base during hook-up. It is made of a sturdy steel construction, it is made in USA. I do want to give you that dimension, so that if you're trying to match it, from the bottom of this square base, to the center of that locking pin hole, is 1 inches. This is called a turnoverball because basically you would drop the square base into the gooseneck hitch and then you would tow with this gooseneck ball, when you're done towing, you can unlock it.

Pull the pin out, turn this over, drop this ball down in the square opening and then this would stay under the bed of the truck and this would be flush with the truck bed, so it'll give you full access to your truck bed. As you can see, there's a little handle there to help you lower down and to pull it back up. That should do it for the review on part number BWGNXA2005, the B and W replacement hitch ball for the B and W turnover ball on their gooseneck hitch, part number BWGNRK1309. .

This solid, machined hitch ball is a direct replacement for the 2-5/16" ball that came standard with your B&W Turnoverball gooseneck trailer hitch (BWGNRK1309) for Dodge Ram.


etrailer was very professional in how they processed my order and went the extra mile in letting me know all along the way how they were handling locating one item that was not readily in stock. They continually communicated with me throughout the ordering and shipping process, Would definitely do business with them again!


Perfect fit for the B&W hitch that came with my truck.


looks very well made bought a truck that didn't have the ball had to buy an replacement




Its worked out Great. Its a very well made hitch ball.


Exactly as expected. Everything fits as it should and works like it should.


Great service. Good product.




Great hitch! I'm a pretty avid do it yourselfer so I did the install myself and it was relatively simple. The directions that came with the hitch had all the information I needed. It works well with my trailer and the quality seems to be pretty good. It's pretty low profile while you're not using it as well. Overall very happy with it. A couple of install notes for squarebody Chevy, GMC trucks which is what I installed mine on: You will need to lift the bed off the frame just enough to slide the hitch between the bed floor and the top of the frame rails so if your truck is rusty like mine, you may want to have new bed mount hardware on hand before you start in case you have to cut the old bolts to get them out. Also, the safety chain loops land right on the ridges in the bed floor so they don't recess completely flush even when they're not in use but so far it hasn't been a problem for me. I saw that mentioned in some other reviews on here so I already knew before I bought the hitch.


Installation was straight forward and it's well built. Works smoothly. etrailer was awesome as usual with shipping and service.
However.... ;) on the BWGNRK1400 for '73-'87 GM trucks, the predrilled holes in the hitch for the safety chain u-bolts are 6-1/4" each way from center of the ball. This places the matching holes you have to drill in the truck bed on the sloped edge of the ribs, not in the center of the valley as intended. The instructions read as if the holes are not pre-drilled but they are, so I contacted B&W and asked if I can drill new holes at 8-3/4" each way of the ball so that they center in the next valley and they said no, that will void the warranty. So I had to do some bodywork, cut, weld and grind to scallop the ribs around the anchors to they won't always be sticking up (defeating the flat floor intent of this hitch design). I saw guy on [online] noted this was an issue on his squarebody bed as well.
B&W needs to look at this dimension for future installations to help out the next guy.


Overall this Installation went as I anticipated, 4-5 hours; it's not for an unprepared amateur. I strongly recommend watching the Installation Video, but more importantly, disconnecting the wiring harness (from both sides, there's 3 connectors) that cross over the rear cross member above the Differential. Disconnecting the rear exhaust was a MUST DO for us (my son helped me) as is a second person. Patience was our friend during this entire Installation for both of us. The brake line that crosses over to the passenger side was of concern to me, and got in the way as well; in the end it is below this entire installation. However there is a Mount Block on the driverside that creates a problemwith getting one bolt into place; a "Fishing Spring" (spring wire that wraps around the threads with long tail to fish/thread/pull thru the hole) would have helped to get this into place. (SEE PICTURE) Once in place the head is able to be held with a narrow spanked wrench while tightening. The rear center bolt is a HUGE challenge to reach once everything is in place and you're torquing things to spec.I had to purchase a "3/4" Crowsfoot" to get this and some of the others because of things blocking access with a socket (not talked about in the video or Installation Video). Once everything is in place and Reconnecting electrical plugs we found that there was enough gap/spacebehind the Kit Rear Cross Bar, over the vehicle rear cross member, to run the driver side electrical. Pay attention to have the "male" plug facing inboard to give you enough slack to reach the passenger side plug. A couple of zip-ties were needed to keep this inplace. See picture for how I routed this and the vent tube to avoid the heatshield.

I've got a 26 foot Keystone Cougar 5th wheel RV Trailer that I be using this, along with an Andersen 3217 hitch. With this B&W Hitch I don't have the 5th wheel Rails across the bed full-time anymore of my 2022 Ram 1500DT 4x4.


Installation was very easy. Everything lined up perfectly. I did not need the inner brackets. I have a 2019 Ford f250 platinum. Absolutely amazing. Another great B and W hitch!!


Ok first off. The paint adhesion of any b&w product is probably the worst I've seen for the money. The paint is the first thing that falls off.

That being said if you know that already and take some precautions like I did then you can really easily fix this problem.

I sandblasted the back half of my frame and did the 3 step por-15 method on everything. I currently live in Indiana and I do seldomly drive it in the winter but I hate rust and will be moving more south shortly.

I por-ed every part that came with the hitch. Every bolt and nut got anti-seize. The bolts are also of basic quality and will rust fast. Anything that was metal on metal contact has a layer of marine grease to prevent the from from rusting in between. I'm extra but I felt that this was the only way to go to protect everything. It's still a great product and hasn't let me down yet.


The B&W turnover ball system is the cleanest and most well thought out way to install a gooseneck ball into any truck on the market. while etrailer warned me that the firestone air spring kits (f2025) couldnt be used with an in bed hitch, they actually can and work in wonderful harmony. installation was a breeze. I would highly recommend both systems. as a sidenote, i needed this system delivered to me quickly around a holiday and etrailer came through!


I give the unit 4 stars as it is heavy duty and went together fairly well. However, I would deduct stars for the release mechanism. This was just one step above unacceptable. For example, I have air springs and the release handle interferes with the bags. I had to slightly modify it so it would work. I'll be going to the nearest welding shop and asking for a better version to be fabricated. I would also deduct points for the instructions. Very basic and in some cases, worse than figuring it out myself.

I though the video from trailer was helpful. Albeit, the vehicle they show is not a diesel truck. I had to drop my DEF tank to get at the bolts.


I don't typically leave reviews, but this product earned one. Everything went on exactly how it should with zero issues. The measurement for the hole was perfect. The hardware used was top notch and had no issues torquing to spec. The install was quick, and every step of the way was simple and thought out, and communicated effectively in the instruction pages. VERY impressed with the kit, and how strong everything is. This is going to be a huge help for towing our mules around with the tundra. Big thanks to etrailer for the communication and fast shipping, making sure I could get this installed before mule days!


I installed this myself in our brand new 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 LT regular box. Drilling holes in the bed was nerve wracking, but I measured twice and followed the instructions carefully and it turned out great! A person asked me later if it was factory installed because it looks so good! We have used it to tow our 13K fifth wheel with Reese Goosebox and B&W offset ball for almost a year now and we love it!


Excellent hitch for maintaining full access to your bed when you aren’t towing. Solo installation took about one afternoon. I recommend using a hole saw for the 4 inch big hole and a step drill for the safety chain bolts. The hitch bolted to existing factory holes in the frame as advertised. I was impressed that I could still buy something that fit like this for my 1995 F-250.


My order showed up, box was mangled and ripped, all mounting hardware is missing. I'm supposed to have this installed at the end of the week and on top of spending 600+ dollars on the hitch now I have to go buy all hardware to mount it. Wish something could just come in one piece and all there, and not be all scratched up and missing parts. Unfortunately I wasn't home or I would have refused the delivery and sent it back for replacement


This hitch worked flawlessly and the quality was excellent. I have sold the truck with the turnover ball hitch but bought another truck and a B&W slider hitch with pucks. Excellent products!!


Everything worked out great the only problem is the handle to pull the pin out is not long enough to go outside the wheel well so I had to add three more inches onto it other than that great product thank you very much

by: did a great job again! Quality hitch, helpful information and videos. Easy ordering and fast shipping. Thank you for delivering another great experience!


Difficult to determine installation ease, as I had the bed off my truck while installing. That made it very easy, but instructions were good and its a straightforward process. Very well made, and fit precisely on my truck. I think the B&W system is very tough to beat. Solid and dependable. And their after sale customer service is excellent.


Great service and a great product! Quick delivery and good communication regarding status. Of course it’s a great hitch, it’s a B&W…


It was a simple install with a pair of ramps in my garage. I would recommend the etrailer install video. That was more informative than the manual that came with the Hitch. It took me around 2.5 hours to perform complete install.

  • Recommended Gooseneck Ball/Safety Chain Anchor for 2020 Ram 3500 With OEM Puck System
    Of the available options, I prefer the B&W # BWGNXA2062 which includes the compatible gooseneck ball as well as safety chain anchors that mount in the pucks. As opposed to the Curt and Reese offerings that use a latch mounted in the top of the ball that can be easily damaged, the B&W uses a latch that folds flat when the ball is locked into place so it's out of the way of he gooseneck coupler and won't get damaged. I've linked to an installation video that you might find helpful.

    The size of the hitch ball itself is the same but there are differences between the standard hitch balls and a gooseneck ball.
