I will try to get in touch with Curt today to see whats available.

Thanks for the video-turns out this guy is only 20 miles from me! It's a small world. Since I have the 2013 2500, I think my frame is the same as last year. I believe I can get any ole' gooseneck hitch set-up and be fine. I plan to nose around under the truck this weekend and check things out. Based on the video, I think I'll run up to his shop and let them put my gooseneck in. I also noticed my bed is designed for the factory hitch prep (flat circular spots where the main gooseneck hole would be, and then four smaller circular flat spots where the fifth wheel hitch would normally be secured).

I've been reading about the 5th wheel hitch to fit the factory hitch prep package-seems folks have either engineered something to work, or are simply doing without until parts get finalized.

Did you ever figure out how to post pics, my friend? It took me a while, and I'm still not great at it! I've gotta see this 3500!

Still trying to figure the pic post out. I will try again. Looks like you are getting ready for a gooseneck hitch for your new (sweet) 2500. I have had several different type setups in dodges (91 & 98), fords and my freightliner over the years and the best to date is the B&W flip over ball. Great quality, good design, easy use and installation. I am a fanatic when it comes to greasing and servicing our equipment. Stationary and pop-out balls get real messy sitting around, removing and especially storing. B&W just pops back in hole upside-down so no messy storage issues. Good location for the breakaway chain connection points. Based on the install video this is the guy to do the installation and only 20 miles away (lucky sob).

Thanks. Pretty impressed so far. Really like your Big Horn with mods (pic.). I would really like to make some mods to the 3500 but waiting to see what becomes available. Thinking 22.5" rims and tires, iron cross bumpers + winch, bump up the horses a little (OK alot) (i.e. injectors, exhaust etc.)...the wish list goes on and on. Like I said, probably keep stock for now so all of the bugs get worked out under warranty and better supply of after-market goodies are available.
