Stolen ball

While on a recent adventure to Wal-Mart, someone decided they needed my gooseneck ball for a sinker. The shop that installed is no longer in business. The ball shaft is round and is grooved all the way around for the pin coming from the driver's side fender well. It was installed in the 2006-2007 time frame. The ball would flip over so that it would flush out with the bed. Anyone know where I can get a replacement, name brand, where to look for the name...

Any help would be appreciated.

Its definitely a b&w ball. That it exactly how my 2006 is. Google B&W replacement hitch balls. I'm sure you'll find it.

I dont think its a B&W, my turnover is a square shank with a hole on all sides for the pin to run through. I wish there was a way to lock the ball in the bed. Its a bit of a pain to keep it in the cab. Hope you can figure out what brand it is. Pics might help us help you.

Please collect and message me Shell, Rotella oil cap codes aka "my miles matter" I'm trying to save up for a hat or something.

Maybe I could tell you how to make it, seeing how I don't have pictures of the missing ball. Take a beer can solid piece of steel on a lathe. With the cylinder spinning cut a 3/8" square groove 3/4" from the right. Next cut a hitch ball on the left of the cylinder. That's it! No squares at all. I have looked everywhere. I am hoping someone pulls one out of a hat.
