heat shield on under side of bed floor


has anyone had to buy a replacment for the adhesive backed heat shield on the underside of the pickup bed?

To install the B&W hitch the exisitng one has to be peeled off. I want to insulate the hitch after I put it on.

Re: heat shield on under side of bed floor

I just installed my B&W hitch yesterday afternoon and I left the heat shield in place. It made the install a little harder because the angle brackets don't slide in as well but it does fit. I left it there because I want to keep the heat out of the bed. The only thing I donít like about the kit is the need for lowering the exhaust. IMO it makes the tips hang a little low and kinda looks funny (they hang approx. 1.5-2Ē lower). There isnít much you can do about it and Iím sure Iíll get used to it but for now it looks weird.

The install took about 4 1/2 hours in the driveway with hand tools but I saved the $350 ($70hr @ 5hrs) the shop wanted for the install so Iím happy [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif[/img]. Hereís a few tips to make the install a little easierÖ.. Drop the spare tire and remove heat shield around the tire. Then jack the rear of the truck up by the hitch until the tires just barely touch the ground. This gives you a lot more room to move around under the truck. If you're doing the install yourself I have a tip for holding the center piece in place while you're bolting it to the front and rear mounting rails. Take a 4x4 or a 2x4 and lay it accross the bed rails. The use a tie down strap with a hooks on the end and go around the lumber and around the latching pin in the center of there hitch.

Also, You'll also need 2 - 1 1/8" sockets to tighten the 3/4" bolts that go through the side plates and frame.

Re: heat shield on under side of bed floor

I wouldnt worry about replacing it. I have not had any heat transfer from my B&W to the bed. I dont know what kind of glue they use on that thing but it was a pain to get off.
I dont really like the exhaust hanging down lower either but it doesnt hurt anything.
It took just under two hours to do the install including mounting the plug in the bed.

Re: heat shield on under side of bed floor

I have installed 6 B&W hitches now, and have left the heat shield in place on all of them.

Re: heat shield on under side of bed floor

well its off because I couldn't get past it. Have what we beleive is the correct part ordered to be here Thursday. $30.00 if you're interested.

Did you guys get the stand offs for the bolted attachment for the hanger forward of the axle? I didn't so I adjusted that hanger the old fashioned way.

Also had to puch their bracket down all the way to the upper most hole becasue it interfered with another frame mounted hanger. FWIW, on my truck the over axle bend seems to be a lot higher than it needs to be.

I'll post some pictures.

Mine were missing but I called B&W and they sent them to me. I was going to do it the old fashion way but figured I'd get them and do it right. With the luck I've had in the past 12 month I'd end up snapping that puppy off and be completely screwed .

Know this is an old thread, but recalled reading it several weeks back. Regarding the installation of the B&W gooseneck hitch, is it possible to install without having to mess with the 6.4 exhaust? Thanks.

I don't think it will work but it can't hurt to try it...... On my truck I can say without a doubt it wasn't going to fit without lowering the exhaust.
