Under-Bed Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation For 1995 Chevrolet Z71 Pickup Truck


Will this model fit a 1995 Z71 4 wheel drive pick up


Expert Reply:

For your 1995 Chevrolet Z71 pickup we have a few under-bed gooseneck hitches to choose from if your truck is not a flareside or stepside model. The Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, part # 9464 you referenced is not a fit for your truck.

I recommend the Draw-Tite Gooseneck Hitch, part # 9465-40. This has the custom installation kit included and requires no drilling or welding on the truck frame. When you are not towing, the ball stores upside down and gives you full access to the bed of your truck. This comes with a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball. I have attached a product review video for this hitch. If you choose this hitch I also recommend the Hole Saw Bit for Gooseneck Hitch Installation. This is used for cutting the 3-1/2 inch hole in the bed of the truck for the hitch ball.

Another hitch I recommend is the Blue Ox Gooseneck Hitch, part # DH1303. This hitch will work for the 2500 models only. This hitch engages and disengages the ball from the inside the bed of the truck. The ball can be inverted for storage to give you full use of your truck bed.

It is also recommended to use Loctite Threadlocker 262, part # LT37420 on all bolts when installing the hitch.
