Is B&W Gooseneck Hitch Compatible with Rear Airbag Kit on 2012 F-250 Crew Cab Short Box


Is it possible to install both a BandW turnover ball hitch and rear suspension airlift airbags in a 2012 F-250 crew cab short box?


Helpful Expert Reply:

The B&W Custom Underbed Installation Kit # BWGNRK1111-5W that fits your 2012 Ford F-250 Crew Cab Short Box installs on the outside surfaces of your frame rails. Any suspension kit that also installs on the outside of the frame will not work, but one that installs inboard or on the bottom of the frame should be compatible.

The Airlift kit that fits your truck will depend on whether you have 2WD or 4WD. The linked page will show you all four AirLift rear-axle air bag kits.

My contact at B&W confirmed that AirLift kits can be installed along with their hitch but that you will have to drill through the B&W mounting brackets in order to install the suspension kit. This is permissible; cutting or welding of the hitch is not.
