We offer quite a few goose neck hitches for your 2012 Dodge Ram 3500 short bed and all can be seen on the link provided. I reviewed the installation instructions for most of these items and the hitch ball location stays within a fairly tight range of 44-inches to 46-inches from the rear edge of the truck's bed. The B and W # BWGNRK1313 that you referenced has its ball 45-1/2-inches from the rear edge.

Among those with the smallest (44-inch) distance for ball placement are Reese # 8339-4435, Draw-Tite # 9464-35 and # 6300-4435. These three are also among the lowest cost of all options.
I have linked available installation videos for your reference along with the written instructions.
