I need to install a gooseneck hitch on my truck and I'm a little confused by all the options and how they attach. I don't mind having a ball in the bed all the time so I am thinking of going with a plate style to save some money. I know that this requires spacers between the bed and frame of the truck, but what is generally used for spacers?
Also, for this style of bent plate:
Is the purpose of the bent rise in the middle to eliminate the need for spacers?
Thanks in advance for advice. I know this stuff is simple enough to do on my own if I can use figure out the specifics!
