Parts Needed to Install Gooseneck on a 2008 Ford F550


Do you know of any gooseneck setups that will work on an 08 F550, with a factory bed? Im having trouble locating a setup that will work.

After speaking to my contact at Curt, I have found the Curt Gooseneck Flat Plate # C65500 is a compatible fit for your 2008 Ford F-550 Super Duty. It comes with a 2-5/16 inch ball rated at 30,000 lbs and D rings.

With the amount of weight you most likely will be towing, I recommend to install the plate only using the Curt Universal Gooseneck Ball Rail Kit, # C61502 rails. Just bolting the plate to the truck without adding rails will not allow it to meet the 30,000 lb rating. Also, I recommend having the plate professionally installed.

This rail kit will install to the frame rails and give the extra reinforcement that is needed to maintain the 30,000 lbs. rating.

The kit will come with all of the Grade 5 mounting hardware to mount the rails to the frame. You will still need to get six 1/2 inch Grade 5 bolts to attach the flat plate to the rails. See picture to the right to see how it bolts together. I have also included instructions for proper installation of this product.
