hey work at a truck equipment shop and ive put a couple plate gooseneck hitches in. they are not bad the big thing is the hole you gotta cut. but other than that its pretty straight forward. ive always loved the BnW turn over hitches but they come at a pretty penny

Ya getting the will power to cut the hole is the worst part it says 3 to 6 inches in front of the axle any reason why it let's me choose and not say where they recommend? Pros and cons of having it either way

Since you have a UNIVERSAL mounting kit, you can put it 3-6" But Ideal is 2" in front of the axle

Have your buddy do it. No emotional attachment. Just don't let him have too much fun with it. Don't forget to file and paint the hole to prevent new rust.
