Correct B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch for 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel Short Bed


I am wanting the turnoverball gooseneck for my truck. 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel short bed. I believe 6.3ft Im wanting to know if this is the correct model that I will need? I am wanting to use the ultimate Anderson gooseneck mount hitch. And also do you know if it will need the extender for more clearance or not? I have the Rockwood ultra lite fifth wheel. Any information you can provide is appreciated. Thank you,

The B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1313-5W that you referenced is indeed the correct model for your 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel. The custom brackets included with this assembly will line up to existing holes in the truck's frame rails so you don't have to drill into them during installation.

I have attached an installation video below that you can use for reference, along with the written instructions manual.

The Andersen Ultimate 5th Wheel Connection does feature an offset to help with cab clearance on short bed trucks, but I still think it's a good idea to use the 4" Offset Ball # BWGNXA4685 that you also mentioned. The offset on the Andersen by itself might not be enough to avoid cab interference when making a 90 degree turn. This is just going to give you more peace of mind when making those sharp revenuers on the road.
