Just installed a B & W Gooseneck hitch on my 2015 Chevy 2500 HD. To my surprise the ball is located 5.25" forward of the rear axle center. When we called B & W they said that is as it should be on that model. Besides making my 6.5' bed even shorter then expected (cab clearance) what other effects will the change have on handling?
It should make it handle better when pulling. That is further forward of the axle than mine but it kinda depends on the axle in relation to the rear of the truck. If the axle is set further back than you can afford it further in front of the axle.
