Jim, thanks for the feedback. As I have the GMC Canyon my hitch will be connected same as Gary's, with the king pin adapter ball mount behind the king pin. Cable enters adapter on the passenger side with cable looping around to the driver side.
I'm pretty sure the handle could be mounted using the 5/8" holes of the pin box mount as the threaded portion has an OD of 5/8 and the lock washer ID is 5/8" so should fit a 5/8 hole perfectly.
Mounting it this way would put the handle on driver side and the handle tucked up under the loft and less visible.
