In 1991, B & W patented their innovative gooseneck hitch that solved an issue many were having; how to remove the ball out of the bed when not towing. The B & W answer is to cut a 4 inch hole in the bed which accommodates the Turnover hitch ball, while the mounting system is bolted to the frame beneath the bed. This design is completed with a handle attached toa 5/8” locking pin that goes through the ball. When you do not need to use the hitch, the handle allows you to retract the pin and stow the ball upside-down, in the same receiver used while in action. This design was a great improvement to the welded-in ball and fold down plate solution.
B & W hitches are manufactured using high quality steel with a powder coated finish to ensure maximum durability. The gooseneck hitches are also designed specifically for your Dodge Ram Truck, ensuring ease of installation and a perfect fit. We do this so that you will make the least amount of modifications to your vehicles frame as possible, which could void your manufacturer’s warranty in many other installations.
The Turnoverball has been professionally tested and is rated to 30,000 lbs Gross Trailer Weight (GTW) and 7,500 lbs Vertical Tongue Weight (VTW). Customers have been hauling their precious cargo with the Turnover Ball for over fifteen years, and it has an impeccable safety record. It's easy to see why; B & W is committed to quality! Turnover ball hitches by B & W are manufactured in Kansas, right here in the good old U.S.A. They stand by their product, and even offer a limited lifetime warranty.

Q: Do I need to provide maintenance to my turnover ball hitch at all?
A: Depending on the overall usage of the hitch on your Dodge Ram, coats of grease may need to be re-applied in order to maintain performance.

This hitch is very well built and the installation in my Dodge 3500 is very solid. The instructions were easy to follow; however, I found some useful installation tips from YouTube that made it a little easier for one person to do the install. I like the fact that this hitch is American made by a company who will stand by their work.

Loving the product itself. Very easy to install.I would make one correction to the instructions to install it, but even those are easy to follow and understand.

by Joseph P
Best made hitch out there. Installation was simple about a two hour install. Pulls my gooseneck and tractor with ease and no jerking as I've had with other brands. This is the hitch I would recommend to anyone wanting to haul.

Hitch has done what it's supposed to do. Installation was pretty simple but there were some bolts that were hard to reach with a torque wrench. I am pleased with the towing results and overall operation and quality of the kit.
by Keith W
It fits perfect. Took about 2 hours to install. It is easy to install and looks great. I recommend this product

It is a great product. I have one on each of my two Dodge Ram 3500 dually's. I installed the one on the newest truck and everything fit as it was supposed to. I'm not a mechanic so I'm sure that it would have been easier to got to some of the bolts to tighten if I had all of the right tools. I pull a six horse trailer and a 41' toy hauler and there has neve been a problem in nine years. I would recommend to anyone looking to have a gooseneck hitch and still keep the full use of the bed.
