Regardless of the brand , in case of failure - Blue Ox bed saver is the best insurance to be had for a 5tywheel . We got ours before the first pull.

I WAY prefer Butch's design for the Pullrite hitch because the Blue Ox bed saver design for a Pullrite requires the entire bed aft of the hitch head to be free of cargo so it can move with the hitch.

The Blue Ox Pullrite design bolts to the rotating Pullrite hitch head and swings around the bed as the hitch turns.

You have the new style hitch with the nylon plate and hitch body clamp under the rotating hitch head yoke.

The old style was steel on steel and the rails can gall without the lithium grease. Best top photo I have of the steel on steel type. Bottom photo was after I modified my hitch to the new style.
Note the black "pad" under the yoke support between the support and the rails.

Here is the difference:

Just a few parts are different and are "mostly" drop in fit.

The only part I changed is C4 in the bottom graphic; everything else is original on mine.

The nylon covered lower cam ("C") is a complete assembly and I did not change as it was beyond a "driveway" upgrade and cost almost what a new hitch was going for.

WARNING - THIS IS NOT A PULLRITE APPROVED MODIFICATION

As with all internet hacks (mods), proceed at your own risk. Pullrite will not even mention that this is possible and I will not provide any additional guidance (I have no wish to be sued at my age - or any age for that matter).

Here is the new manual for anyone who is interested in what the new hitch looks like.
