2011 Gooseneck hitch

So what hitch is the best for the new 2011 F-450? If you can get it installed from the factory and save time with install and get warranty from Ford is that best? Just wasn't sure on the ratings of the Ford setup. B&W is at 30k and 7500 vertical. I have had B&W hitches in the past and had good luck with them.
