Following a pickup, deer accident with my 1997 F250, a replacement was necessary. My wife wanted a 4 door so the family can travel with me to shows/ rides in comfort. Sorry that it is not red, but the engine is IH!

Nice ride! Keep that B&W hitch and mechanism clean and lubed and they work well. Have one on my F150.

I found the easiest thing to do is to remove the ball when not in use. If dirt falls in the hole I just blow/clean it out before dropping the ball in.

Looks nice, last of the 7.3's. How many miles?  150K is just getting broke in. Take half decent care of it and will be around for a long time!

155,000 miles.  New turbo, injectors, injector harness, batteries,  front tires and rear brakes before I purchased it.

Looks like a winner- you can haul stuff AND people.  Having a back seat was a huge consideration when I bought my current truck (crew cab) so my wife/daughter could ride comfortably.  Well Dad too, haha.

I always leave mine in flipped over but maybe I'll try your way. I use it enough where it really hasn't been an issue yet but my stepsons has acted up as he only uses his here and there. Dads new Super Duty has the 5th wheel prep pack from ford so it has little covers for all the holes. Works really nice so far.

Reaching in to grab the ball and flip it when there is a little bit of dirt/snow ice can be quite the hassle. Plus by keeping the ball in the cab I reduce the chance of somebody stealing it. The covers and integrated hitch is nice on the new trucks.

The one in my 93 is stuck up, but i don't think its b&w brand. It's round shank. I have pounded on it from the top, bottom, sides, soaked it in pb... even lifted the back half of the pickup by it and pounded on it with a bar... might as well be welded.

Sounds like the Una-goose in my truck. I've tried pb, also tried lots of heat. But its still stuck in there.

Bought a repo pickup that came from sand country with a bw. It doesn't budge. It'll stay up until I pull the bed and put a flatbed on it
