While the option might be nice, I can't miss what I've never had - but my opinion is that I can reach the plug that's on the rear vs. I would need a step stool to reach over the side.

I base that on a former truck that had a 6 pin installed back there. I was told it was used with goosenecks???

Don't you need to have the tail gate open to hook up? Otherwise, if the 7 pin connector is placed in the back corner, there should be no problem. How do you pull the lever to open the jaws for the king pin when you want to unhook?

I've had a truck without the plug in the bed and, now with one in the bed. I'll do with out it because, I have way less worry the cord will get damaged.

Personally, I prefer to use the 7 pin connector I installed in the back corner of the truck bed. It keeps the cord from dragging on the road and getting tangled/hung up in whatever. Everyone knows, give a cord, cable, or hose a chance to hang up on something, it will show you how well it can do it.

I just plugged mine into the bumper the other day for fun. It ripped out on a tight corner because its too short. Lucky I didn't brake the socket.

I installed a Bargmann right angle harness in the bed of my 2014 Ram last weekend. Nice unit, American made, straightforward install. Now all I need is a 5th wheel! The Eagle HT 28.5 BHXB should be here soon!
