Another hitch pic. I know the companion is not recommended. I am trying it myself. I may regret it, may not.

Good pic. Kinda shows where I have to jackknife after pulling into my driveway to back up under my overhang.

I'm very happy with my hour test drive. Truck towed like a champ. Fuel mileage was less then my 2012 cummins, but not enough to make any regret. The airbags ride great. Hitch is sweet. I am satisfied. If anyone had any questions, lemme kno. I will give the best answer I can.

Sledge - because he could have two pivot points which would be bad. B&w expressly says to not use that combo

Make sure to double check your hitch often. If it turns on the gooseneck ball, it could be a bad deal. Doesn't look like you have the factory 5th wheel package?

Gtsum2. You do understand it's not on a ball I assume? I get their concern, however the normal stresses and torques of pulling a trailer up a steep hill and stopping seem to be just as much as the possibility of twisting that square insert. I know they are concerned that the designed pivot point could fail and twist the square pin, but the likelihood of that is very slim I think. Just my opinion.

Awesome setup, so how do your ram tow it?

Ahh, I missed the part about the Reese Sidewinder at first.

After having the 6.4 hemi a bit, how do you like it compared to the 6.7 cummins, power wise?
