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.

This is a great product, there is a reason that B&W was the name that came up over and over when I was researching a hitch set up for my truck. The quality is great and the install was straight forward. I also received it faster and cheaper than the locale trailer hitch guy. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is I feel like the powder coating could have been a little better, not a big deal for me because I live in California but for someone in the rust belt it could potentially be a problem. I would and have recommended this product to friends.
Glad I went with the b&w it's worth it. It took me about 2-1/2 hours to install it.
I pull about 13 tons with it most of the time and never had any issues
Awesome hitch maintains bed area. Simple installation.
