Video Transcript for B And W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch 4 Inch Offset Ball Review

What's up, everybody It's AJ with etrailer.com Today, we're gonna be checking out this B&W adapter. This is gonna make your ball four inches offset for the shorter bed here on this RAM Classic. Let's check it out. This is gonna be the standard gooseneck ball you get with your B&W hitch, so fits in there just fine. But on our RAM today we have a 5 1/2 foot bed, so we don't have a whole lot of room here. So if you go to hook up, it's gonna be really tight against the cab or problematic to try and hook up.

So that's why you get this adapter that puts it at an offset. So I'll put that in just like before. It goes down in place, you latch it. And now the ball has moved from here, where this one would've been, to four inches offset. Now you're gonna have more clearance from the cab and your rig when you're driving or taking turns.

On our website, you're gonna see two different versions of this. We've gotten a lot of questions on 'em, so I wanted to point out why one will work and the other won't. First thing you wanna do is go out to your hitch, your gooseneck hitch in the back of your truck. Measure from the bottom collar to the top edge, it's about 2 1/2 inches. So already you're gonna see that this one is longer, this is gonna be 4 1/2 inches.

So if we we're to go try and use this, it would stick out up past the gooseneck and not be able to latch in, so we won't be able to use it that way. That's why this one is the one specifically for this hitch on this truck, because it has a shorter shank, so you can drop it in there, and then it'll latches in place. It's gonna be made out of a sturdy steel construction. Also, it's gonna have a gross trailer weight rating of 20,000 pounds. This is gonna have a vertical tow weight rating of 5,000 pounds.

Overall, this is gonna be easy enough to install. It's gonna help you out, get that extra clearance in the back of your truck, so you're gonna hook up your rig and get on the road. Well, I think that does it. Thanks for hanging out, and hope this helped.

4" Offset Ball for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Dodge Ram 1500 - BWGNXA4685

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (262 Customer Reviews)

Designed for use with B&W's Turnoverball gooseneck hitch (BWGNRK1309) for your Dodge Ram 1500 or Ram 1500 truck, this ball extender moves the pivot point of your trailer 4" rearward to provide additional cab clearance.

by:

Just received this item only to find that IT DOESN'T FIT. The hole center on this item is 1 3/4" from bottom of plate and the pin on my B&W hitch is 2" below the top of the hitch (so it's off by 1/4"). I have a Dodge Ram 3500 dually and this is specifically for a Dodge. HOWEVER, apparently a different model # B&W hitch was installed by the previous owner on my particular truck. SO, I need to return this and get the one for a different model hitch (offset ball #BWGNXA4085). This means the offset ball will be sitting about 3/4" above the bed of the truck which doesn't thrill me, so I will probably put a support piece under that part even though I'm sure they will say I don't need it.
MEMO TO ETRAILER: You should mention prominently in your description that YOUR specific Dodge Ram may have a different hitch and to measure carefully before ordering.



by:

I bought this to extend the ball close to the axle on my 13 Ram mega cab. I have the B&W hitch installed. It is built really well. Only problem I had was that the shank on the extender do sent fit far enough down in receiver for the pin to latch and had to return it. Just writing the review incase someone else has had this problem.



by:

Works great just what we needed



by:

Although I haven’t had the gooseneck hitch or the extender installed on my truck yet, I just want to respond to the customer service I received. I spoke with two different ladies over two days and they help me figure out which hitch I needed for my truck and were extremely helpful. I was told I would receive the hitch in about a week but it showed up two days later. I’m very happy with the company and would definitely use them again



by:

Pulled a Featherlite 4 horse slant load trailer with a sleeping berth 3 times to Arizona from Illinois this year with a 6' 4" box and had no problem with turning radius because of this ball. Works well!



by:

Excellent service and very knowledgeable about their products. Quick delivery. Product is VERY heavy duty weighing nearly 20 pounds. Trailer is in the shop but will add to the review once I have a chance to hook up trailer and see if this adds the clearance between the nose of the trailer and cab of the truck that I need because of having a short bed.



by:

Simple to install, solid attachment with zero rattle. Love it! Bought a different anti rattle with a lock built into it, fairly expensive, don't like it at all.



by:

No issues, works as it should.



by:

Great product easy to install on the Dodge Ram. Just plug everything in.



by:

Fit right into the hitch to replace original ball.

Don’t go anywhere else unless you want a headache!

Excellent well made American product.Fast shipping and good communication.

Works as advertised. No complaints.

  • Correct Offset B&W Hitch Ball for 2019 Ford F-150 with Turnoverball Gooseneck
    The correct 4" Offset Ball for B&W Turnoverball for a 2019 Ford F-150 is part # BWGNXA4085. The 4" Offset Ball for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Dodge Ram 1500 part # BWGNXA4685 is not cross-compatible.

  • Can the 4 Inch Offset Ball for B&W Turnoverball Be Used With the Anderson Ultimate
    For starters, the correct 4" Offset Ball for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitches that is needed to use on a Dodge Ram 2500/3500 is part # BWGNXA4085 or part # BWGNXA4685 for a Dodge Ram 1500, not part # BWGNXA4585 which is for a Toyota Tundra. That said, you can use this with your Anderson Ultimate 5th Wheel to Gooseneck but since the hitch ball will add height you will need to make adjustments to your coupler accordingly.

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Ram 1500 Ecodiesel 5-1/2 foot Bed
    The B and W Turnover Ball hitch part # BWGNRK1309 is a confirmed fit for your 2015 Ram 1500 with an EcoDiesel engine. Since your truck has a such a short bed you are going to want to use the offset adapter part # BWGNXA4685 as well. Hopefully the nose of your trailer is very narrow as well since you won't have a whole lot of room for clearance.

  • Which B&W Offset Ball Will Fit A 2018 Ford F-250 Short Bed With A B&W Gooseneck Hitch Installed?
