B&W Gooseneck Hitch

I've 90% installed my B&W gooseneck hitch (the remaining part is my exhaust is resting with quite a bit of tension on the bottom of the center portion) I have used the hanger drop bracket, but still no clearence. Have any of you had any problems? Or how has the exhaust looked once you guys have finished?

Thanks

Chris

I didnt even put the drop hardware on the rear bracket. The exhaust hits mine pretty good as well. I figure I'll get around to doing something about it....someday.

We did mine, my brothers, and just recently my brother in-laws truck. On all of them we had to hold the exhaust down to make it line up with the bracket. Yes its close but it does fit. And for the after look, well, it really doesnt look that hot. It only drops a couple of inches but it goes a long way. It looks like the exhaust is just hangin out from under the truck instead up tight and neat like stock. But then again i put stacks on mine so i don't have that problem anymore. If you got the money and have been thinking about it just do the dpf delete and get a dual exhaust kit. That all fits fine under my brothers truck nice and neat. If not, then running it just like you have it is fine. Had no probs out of any of our trucks. Just looks a little..... off. And if you haven't used one of those hitches before, you will love it.

Yeah, mine hangs down in the back too. I dont care for it like that all that much, I was thinking about the DPF/DOC delete and turn the pipe out just before the tire, and not worry about getting anywhere near the hitch.
