I work in the collision industry and have replaced many of these hitches that were damaged, and have even had to replace my own after I was in a collision pulling a gooseneck trailer.
- many in here can offer proper install method or you can go straight to b&w's website and download, has torq specs and all.
Stay safe!

Well I have to admit you are right, I went to B&W web site and then I watched one installed on you tube and the hitch needs to be tight against the floor of truck. I will fix that tomorrow and later on I may have someone else look at hitch just to make sure it is installed right. I saw some things on you tube that I want to look at, I want to put a new pin box on 30RL this year, not me of course, someone else thats done it before.
