GM Multi-Pro Tailgate Compatible B & W Tow & Stow Ball Mount for 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 Denali


I have a 2020 GMC Sierra Denali 2500 with the multi pro tailgate and a 2.5 hitch. I really like the B&W Tow and Stow ball mounts, but I hear that they won't work with my tailgate. Is that true? I'd hate to spend all that money and not have it work with the tailgate.

The original B&W Tow & Stow, like the # BW54FR didn't work well with your tailgate, as the front face of the shank would contact the tailgate which isn't good. The excellent news is that B&W has developed a Tow & Stow model that WILL work with your Multi-Pro tailgate, part # BWTS20067BMP. Right now, the 3 ball model is only available in a 7 inch drop, but if that's sufficient for your needs it would be an excellent choice that won't dent the tailgate on your truck.

It seems that B&W only has a 2.5" drop or a 7" drop tow & stow hitch option that is compatible with the multipro tailgate. Is there a 5" drop tow & stow option that is compatible with this tailgate?

As of right now it's only the 2 different drop measurements. The good news is that you can us the 7" option and adjust the hitch balls so that they are higher up than the max 7" drop.

Yes, totally understand the hitch ball drop can be adjusted, but we were also looking for something that didn’t have as low of a drop altogether so that while not towing anything, there’d be less likely of a chance of it snagging on something.

@JoannaC The only way to possibly accomplish what you're looking to do is to use the part # BW64FR with an adapter like part # BWRHXA2182 since it sounds like you have the 2-1/2" receiver.
