Review of Reese Accessories and Parts 8339


Today we're going to review part 8339. This is the Reese fold-down gooseneck trailer hitch. This fold-down gooseneck hitch is designed for use with vehicle-specific mounting rails. This hitch will bolt using the included mounting hardware right here, to the vehicle-specific mounting rails. We would recommend for you to go on our website and under our fitguide put in your year and model of vehicle. That would tell you if they do have vehicle-specific mounting rails that you could use on your vehicle, to attach this to it. The platform and the ball itself is rated for 25,000 pounds gross vehicle towing rate, and 6,250 pounds vertical load weight. The fold-down design allows unrestricted use of your truck bed when you're not towing.

You just pull up on this here, the ball will fold down. Push that back in place, and you have full use of your truck bed. It does take only seconds to raise and lower the ball. Again, just pull up on this, ball would pop up. Again, just lower your .. right there, and you're ready to go.

It uses a heat-treated 2-5/16 diameter gooseneck ball. Has the integrated, as you can see right up here . integrated, drop down spring-loaded safety chain loops. Just hook your safety chain loops to that. Right here, the oversized pull ring allows you to raise or lower the ball. Basically just pull up on it, lower it. Also right here at the top ...

might be hard to see, but on the ball, it does have an integrated grease fitting, which is visible and easily accessible to grease the ball. That does require no alteration of the factory exhaust systems. Again we mentioned, the mounting rails are sold separately. Now we also do sell packages where you can buy the mounting rails for your vehicle, with this included. The dimensions on this, I want to give you a few dimensions. The width on it: 14.5 inches, length is 12 inches and it's 0.25 inch thick. Again, just to demonstrate, now that you have it, you're not towing with it.

It's in the stored position. You have full truck bed access. When you're ready to tow the goosneck. Pull up on this, it will pop up. Push it back down. That would hold it into place, and you're ready to tow with your gooseneck. Now, that should do it for the review on part number 8339, the Reese fold-down gooseneck trailer hitch.
