B&W Turnover hitch

Anyone install there own? I just got mine in the mail. It looks like it may be a pain on some parts. There are two C-shaped peices that appear to slide around the frame rails for support, but they are very tight, to the point to get them on id have to hammer them on or grind some of the powder coating off or something like that.
Any advice or tricks would be awesome.

The c bracket is a pain but it will go. The exhaust will hit hitch unless you drop it down like directions say. I thought the 4 inch hole saw was more of a pain. Have installed a half dozon of them.

I will tell something I do and it helps a ton . Losen all 8 bed bolts and slide some short pieces of 2x4 in between the frame and bed . You can do it by your self . It makes all of the frame attachement work a ton easier .

My 5" flo pro clears my B&W by at Least an inch if not more. You should be fine.

B&W Turnover hitch

I just put in this hitch, same one. It was my first time to install one of these, it cleared my 5" exhaust too, just double check to grt dead center drilling out that 4" hole. You could actually wait till you get ball hitch fame ready to bolt in, use that as a template so you get that big hole dead center. Mine was a 1/4" off it bugs me but it ain't that bad.

When I installed mine I put 2X4 blocks under bed like BedNight suggested . I had lineX bed spray and after bed bolts were loose the seal broke (of course), but I got a spray can and touched em up after.Lifting the bed up a bit will make your install alot easier.

Make sure you purchase a high quality torx bit to remove bed bolts.
when drilling the bed first take piece of ply wood about 12"s square and drill through this then place plywood in the bed and stand on it after centering. this holds the hole saw in place and reduces the chance of wandering
