B&W HITCHES

Well I got rid of my 07 5.9 and got a new 13 DRW with AISIN and love it so far, it has the prep package I feel that whole deal is a joke thank goodness we have the awesome people that build B&W hitches I took the so called hitch from dodge out(says made in china in the casting) and put an AMERICAN MADE B&W in its place fit like a glove like always it is by far the easiest install to date hats off to the guys at B&W

Only thing I don't like about them is the rattle they give when the ball is upside down. Not so bad in a soft riding truck, but the harder riding ones have generated complaints. A single wrap of duck tape takes care of it however.

The question I seek an answer for is simply; why, or why not?

I take the ball out, as I had it freeze in and had to use a torch to remove it.
When they were talking about the upgrades before the truck came out they showed a crossmember with the turn over ball integral as a factory option, I tried looking it up on there site a couple of times, I could not find it?
Just a thought!

It was all so blurry back then.
