My truck already had the B&W turnover ball setup so I did the opposite of most and went with the Reese Goosebox. It replaces the stock pinbox. It has suspension in it for a smooth, noise free ride. It is also only approved gooseneck setup by Lippert as Far as factory warranty goes. If you truck has a ball then this is the easiest way to go. It is good for up to 16k units.

I was unable to make heads or tails of this post. Punctuation and capitalization would help! Like a lot.

Good points Doc.

Reese also makes a 20,000 lb Goose Box.

Mustard, that's the first question I thought of as well. One would either leave it in the truck all the time or rig up an overhead winch.
