Pop Up Goose Neck Hitch and a Bed Rug

Well I started with a 1999 gasser dually and I had a Reese goose neck hitch installed to tow my trailer. I was never happy as I have bony knees and the knees needed a overhaul. I could not install a bed rug for the padding I wanted.
I traded up to a '14 GMC diesel Denali and after a lot of research installed a "Pop Up Hitch" It operated with a tug of the handle in the drivers wheel well. It raised and lowered it.

Installed this is how it looked.




You can see the plastic cover cap removed and set to the side. I also had the 7 pin power connector on the bed side wall up front. I could lean over and grab the plug etc.

CONTINUED FROM ABOVE


So I ordered a "Bed Rug" and fastened it down. I got a exacto knife set from Lowe's and trimmed the goose neck ball opening




I have found the "Pop Up Brand Hitch the U bolts are short with the bed rug installed. And after a lot of research I was able to get from Etrailer a new U bolt that is longer that allows the large safety hooks to fit really good. I'll add more photos when the "16 is installed.
On a separate note on the "14 I had the installed install a plug by plug for the 7 pin connector on the bed and not a splice into the harness. I hear rumors due to the electronics systems a splice and corrosion can create problems. SO again I am getting a plug by plug harness. The "16 does have a splice for trailer harness.
