    For a gooseneck hitch.

    Truck I just bought has a GN hitch already, but came with no ball.

    cannot see a Mfr name or sticker on the hitch itself.

    Dors anyone know what kind of ball goes in here:

    I think they make a regular B&W that will replace all that mess. @Jody Treadway

    ^^ I'm not a fan of the puck system. Dad has it in his 2017 chevy and there is way too much slop and play on the ball and safety hooks.

    I had a uni-goose in my f250. I thought this design looked similar.

    will a regular puck-style ball work?

    I installed dozens of those back in the early/mid 2000's, the ball and lock ring were similar to a hydraulic coupler, and they were very tight when new, I think the downfall was being over loaded on pin weight (nobody does that, right ? ) and the beam would bend in the middle. I never had to warranty one, so it couldn't have been that bad. maybe it was ?

    not familiar with what's available now
