Review of B and W Balls BWGNXA2050


Today we're going to review part number BWGNXA2050. This is the B&W 1" high rise hitch ball for the B&W turnover ball gooseneck trailer hitch. This is designed to be used with the B&W turnover ball gooseneck hitch. The sturdy steel ball will provide an additional 1" of height to fit your application. It has the square ball base which will prevent the ball from turning in the hitch during hookup. It is a sturdy steel construction.

It is made in the USA. The ball size on it is 2 and 5/16ths. It does have an extra 1" rise to it if your application does require that and does have a capacity of 20,000 pounds. Because it has that extra rise, it really cannot be used as a turnover ball. You can use it in the gooseneck hitch, but the design of the turnover ball was for storage on the standard hitch or the standard ball. You could drop it when you're not using it like this into the square opening and then this would be flushed with the truck bed to give you full access to the truck bed, but because this has that extra 1" rise, you would not be able to store it under the bed like the normal turnover ball.

You'd just be able to use it in the towing position and if you need to remove it, you can just take it out of the gooseneck hitch. I just want to show you and compare to the standard that comes the standard hitch ball that comes with the B&W turnover ball gooseneck hitch. As you can see, let me just scoot them up a little, there you go, and you can see there's your 1" difference that you're gaining compared to the standard one. This is the 1" high rise. Another thing I want to give you is a measurement from the bottom of the square base to the center of the locking pin hole. If we put the ruler on that, you can see that measurement would be 2" and the reason I give that is this will fit on most all of the B&W turnover ball gooseneck hitches except for two hitches. One fits the Toyota Tundra and that's part number BWGNRK1257 hitch, the hole is a lot closer down to the base so that will not allow this one to work.

The other one it will not work on is the B&W hitch BWGNRK1309, and that's designed for the Dodge Ram 1500 trucks starting in 2009. The same way, the hole is located lower. Besides those two hitches, this should work on most all of the B&W turnover ball gooseneck hitches. That should do it for the review on part number BWGNXA2050, the B&W 1" high rise hitch ball for the B&W turnover ball gooseneck trailer hitches. .
