Wish Dealers would make this one simple item installation at the the time of installing the hitch...for 46 bucks, give me a break....If I owned the dealership, I would make it a gift to my customers....such a simple piece of engineering....lets buy a few for door prizes at the FROG in August?????????

Since the Blue Ox attached to the rotating part of the hitch head, the Blue Ox turns with the hitch head. That means greater than 180 degrees around the hitch must be kept free.

The safety pin made like the one Butch sells takes up NO room in the bed and does not interfere with bed storage.

You are commenting on something with no knowledge of the facts.
I have a 16,000 lb hitch pulling a 9,000 lb fifth, a hitch that I modified and strengthened to the point of indestructibility.
End of discussion.
