Here are the pictures from @jbaum02 and his comments




Here's my pics. There's one pic with blue tape over the place where the hitch hits the shock. I did this after I trimmed the bracket some to see if it still hit. Doesn't look as bad now, but you can see it torn the tape just a little where it's still contacting.

You could always grind the corner flat on the bracket, and if that's not enough cut off the little round nub that holds the shock bracket, and reweld it inward some.

Figured I'd give an update on my solution. After talking with B&W, I drilled two new holes through the outer hitch bracket and frame, installed 1/2" bolts in the new holes, and removed the C shaped bracket completely.

I've pulled a skid steer on a 32' gooseneck several times and today I hauled a load of cattle in a 28' gooseneck. The hitch doesn't seem to have shifted even a tiny bit. Seems to be working just fine.
