Installing B&W

Hey guys I was thinking about adding a B&W gooseneck hitch in my truck this next week. I know I can buy them online for a good price and would like to install it myself but have never done one before. Any one have any insight on how hard it is to install? I have a 2012 F350 short bed. Thanks for any input.

I stalled my own, but i think the 2011+ trucks, the bed has to be removed for the B&W install. I could be wrong though. If not, they're pretty straight forward installs with basic handtools


2006 F350 SOLD
* KMC XD Monsters wrapped in Hankook ATM's
* 08 style mirrors
* 4" TB exhaust
* SCT X2 with Gearhead, PHP and ID tunes
* Edge Insight CTS
*Full Bulletproof Diesel kit with remote oil cooler
* Blue FPR spring
* 6.4 Banjos
* Repaired FICM by BPD
* Dfuser coolant filter
* Stage1 MTW turbo



New truck has a Cummins and a handshaker

Is it 2016 yet?

B&W does their best to keep it a no drill install. They may recommend lifting the bed to help, but I haven't done a new Ford yet.

Let me know where you find it. I'll be ordering mine soon. From the video I watched on YouTube the bed doesn't have to come off, but I can't remember if it was a B&W hitch or nit

I had to go to Home Depot, stopped at the B&W dealer down the street. $435 plus $60 for the in bed plug. Can't find anything cheaper online and I don't have much of a problem supporting a local business
