Can AirLift Air Bags and a B&W Turnover Ball Gooseneck Hitch be Installed on a 2005 Ford F-250


I have a 2005 F250 6 3/4 bed and have the 5000lbs Airlift air bags that mount outside the frame. Will the Under bed mount from BWRVK3400-5W,BWGNRK1108-5W work with this set up?

I have great news for you. AirLift air bag kit # AL88291 was designed specifically to work with B&W under bed mounts, such as # BWGNRK1108-5W, so you can have both on your 2005 Ford F-250 with 6-3/4 foot bed. But if you have a different AirLift kit then they are not compatible with each other.

If you do have a different AirLift kit then the only way to install a 5th wheel trailer hitch would be to use the Reese universal installation kit # RP30035. The narrow L-brackets will be able to fit around the air spring brackets that attach to the frame on the truck.

With the universal installation kit installed you can then mount a 5th wheel hitch such as the Curt A20 20K # RPC16541 which features a cushioned head and 12 inches of travel in the slider base. I have linked a video review of this hitch for you.
