Product Installation Alert!

Please relay this information to installation technicians.
Some of you may be aware of the inconsistencies in bed placement on 2017 Ford Super Duty frames coming from the factory.  We know that this irregularity has affected the installation of a certain percentage of our GNRK1116/1117 Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitches.
Our engineering team has been following this closely.  We are making a couple changes that we believe will result in a better installation experience.
  • We are changing the hole location to 45.5”
  • We are downsizing the socket top slightly to accommodate fluctuations.
These changes are reflected in the GNRK1116/1117’s leaving B&W starting today.   As older product makes its way through the supply chain, be aware that the new hole location will most likely give the best installation experience.
If you experience issues, we ask that you NOT FORCE the socket top into the hole!  Give us a call and we will walk you through the options at 800-248-6564.
Thank you for your understanding, and for your loyalty to B&W Trailer Hitches.
