B theres a block behind the pin that wont allow a lube plate.

You would have to cut a notch out of the lube plate then attach it by means of drilling holes and counter sinking the plate then bolting it up.

So it sounds like no lube plate or grease is needed for this setup, My life just got easier..

IMO - not needed, but certainly wouldn't hurt.

Rockport you could surely put a little grease on the plate but in my experience every time you jump up in your pick-up bed you'll not only have it on the hitch but on you .

ONLY if the Revolution is activated. If the wedge is in the storage position in the back and the two 5/8" bolts are installed, you need a lube plate.

If the wedge is directly behind the pin and the 2 5/8" bolts are NOT installed, then you do NOT need a lube plate.

Have towed mine over 5,000 and the hitch plate still has the paint on it. The hitch pin does not move and because of that, I tow with a full bed hard tonneau cover installed.

Yes it is activated with the wedge directly behind the pin.. By the way that tonneau cover looks great !
