no 5th wheel or GN hitch for my truck?
I have a 04 F150 FX4 with the flareside box. I have been looking at maybe getting a 5th wheel or GN hitch installed so that I can use my fathers gooseneck trailer (we can swap between a king ping and GN sleeve in about 5mins) and not have to barrow his truck to pull it. Every site that I have looked on for a hitch says that it is not compatible with the flareside box on my truck.
I know that with a RV the pin box would hit the side of the bed being that the flareside is 6-8" narrower at the bed rails that a standard bed. But with the gooseneck there is no real pin box to worry about.
The frames are the same width on my truck as a truck with the standard bed, I still have 50" between the wheel wells like a standard box.Is there some other reason that I could not install a hitch that I am not thinking off or missing??
