Draw Tite Gooseneck Hitch work w/ bags

looking to buy a hidden goose neck for my 2004 super duty

I already have air bags installed (firestone). The kind that install inside the frame rail.

Two questions:

will the draw tite 9460-48 work with the firestone air bags? (I am pretty sure yes)

Is this a good gooseneck hitch? My buddy has a B&W but that is another 150 to purchase.

this is the one i am looking at

Good question. I have a flip over goose neck now, and want to add air bags. I didnt even consider the hitch an fitment of the bags...

I got my b&w turnover GN on eBay for $366 shipped. I'd pay the extra difference for a well known and well built kit. I've heard the Firestone fits with the b&w turnover kit

Draw-tite hide a goose worked awesome with my firestone air bag set up.

my bed was bent a little so I had to pry back into place but everything bolted up like the directions showed.

Couple of tricks I learned.

Not necessary to lower the exhaust hanger bracket.
good luck torqueing the bolts to 212 ft/lbs cramped underneath a truck with a 4 foot wrench, lol. I just cranked up the impact gun power.

hope this helps someone in the future.

I'd go B&W, too. I have it on my current truck and had it on my previous truck. I have airbags and they work together.

Most the kits I have seen are stating "Will not work with (air bags or goosenecks)" I have been trying to find out what model gooseneck i have, some on I see say no air bags, then the air bags i look at say no goose neck. :/ Not sure how to pick them out. I might be getting a new job offer here soon, an will be looking to add air bags pretty soon here.
