Reese revolution pinbox is just the re-named 5th airborne sidewinder after Reese bought the Airborne company. My dealer offered the pinbox as an after market item, but way too much $$$$. I removed and reinstall in the driveway. I saved over a 1,000 $$ Dealer was crazy with their pricing. We love this hitch as we have over 12,000 pulling miles on this unit with zero problems. Just my $ .02

Unhappy

A word of advice. The first thing I did when I bought my Eagle 29.5RKS was to crank it hard and put truck in reverse to see the outcome. I was watching for contact with the back window. What I almost didn't catch was the extended pinbox that was 1/2 inch away from contacting the inside of the box rail on my '08 Chev K2500. I literally had over 2 feet before the window would be broken. Because of the configuration of my truck/hitch/pinbox, this problem cannot be alleviated. If I ever damage my cab and window, that will be on a long list of repairs.

Thanks for the heads up on this. Being a newbie to 5ers I will keep this in mind.
