The B&W hitch that is the turnball type with the underbelly frame is attached to and sits on the frame that the firestone bags attach to. I can not speak to any other truck but the GMC/Chevy trucks are ok as the bags attach to a spindle that is placed in the original cup after the bumper is removed.

My question now is where do you run the lines and put the connectors to inflate the bags? I was thinking rear bumper but hate to drill holes in it.

Thanks

The lines run on the inside of the frame, one on each side. I used zip ties and attached to existing wire harness.I drilled two small holes in the plastic part of the bumper just to the right of the license plate. If you ever needed to remove the bags all it takes is two black grommets that snap into the holes.

The other alternative is to install a air pump. which has lines that attach to a gage that is mounted on the under part of the dash on the driver's side which allows you to make pressure changes on the fly. I chose not to go that way due to the fact that the only time I would use the air bagswas when I was towing the trailer. The vast majority of the time the truck is my daily driver.
