Chrome B&W Tow and Tow vs. Regular Black Model

Hello All:

I'm in the market for a new B&W 8" Tow and Stow for my new 11 F-250 but not quite sure whether or not to get the chrome model. It is only $30 more than the standard black. Just wondering if anyone had an experience with the B&W chrome and could comment on the durability etc. Thanks.

I think it's more about what you prefer. No matter what the chrome is going to chip off the ball, that's guaranteed.

I have the black one and it's rusting pretty bad which makes it really hard to get the pins out without a hammer. I would get the chrome one if I was you.

The pins on the Chrome one arent Chrome plated are they? That's why I didnt get Chrome. Take some Bon Ami to the pins it will clean the rust off. That's what I do.

no, they are stainless steel just like on the black powder coasted model.

My pins didn't rust. It's the drilled holes in the unit itself that are full of rust. You definitely can't just pull them out on their own without a hammer. I even loaded mine up with grease when I first got it.

I took a magnet to my pins and it stuck, I thought they were stainless too. Plus mine have rust all over them until I clean them. I can see the pits. Maybe they are zinc plated.
