If you like goose neck, you will like PullRite's new SuperLite hitch. Metal a-frame structure has bowl on top which mates with ball adapter that bolts on over king pin. Hitch weighs 60 lbs! 20K rated. my SuperGlide weighs 340 lbs. I'll never go back to conventional hitch. no more 10 degree line-up either. Fits on standard frame rails. Anderson makes a version of it, too. They reverse the process-bowl on king pin, ball in truck bed. There's is even lighter, 40lbs, and rated at 26K.

You could have the pin box swapped out for a Reece Goose box.

I've seen those, but heard that they can void mfg. warranty. This is just an adapter on the king pin-stresses stay the same. I also didn't want to give up the air bag and shock on the hitch/pin box.

While its true about the warranty you need to check with the manufacturer. But you change the complete pin box, theres no adapter. It is equipped with an air bag and 2 shock absorbers.
