Goose neck hitch

I bought an '99 f250 7.3 Truck a few months ago. I want to install a goose neck hitch, electric brakes for the trailer, and maybe more other stuff on the truck.

Does anyone know who would install them for a reasonable price in the Fort Worth area?

Any dealership places I should avoid or go to for parts? Thanks.

Neither one are very hard to install. I've got a B&W Turnover ball and installed it myself. The only special tool you need is a 4" holesaw. As long as you measure and drill the 4" hole where specified, it goes right in. Don't even have to remove the bed. The trailer brakes aren't too hard either. There is a factory plug behind the fuse panel cover on the right hand side right above where the ground wires are grounded on the dash frame.

B&W B&W Turnover Ball Gooseneck Hitch BW-1108

Here is one I found. Guess that is how much it's supposed to cost?

About the trailer brakes, you make it sound like it is plug n' play?

But anyways, I guess I'm going to try to install it myself, Thanks.

That's about right on price. The directions that come with it are very easy to understand. Just follow them exactly and you will have no issues.

Note: I recommend having a buddy around when you get ready to install the center section that holds the ball and bolts to the rails. It is pretty hard to lift it into place, hold with one hand and insert the bolts with the other! Ask me how I know this. A 2nd set of hands will be your best friend
