Hauling With Lowered Dually

For those of you sporting a lowered dually and hauling a fifth wheel, how are you doing it? I am using a B&W Companion and it is adjusted as high as it will go and I am running stock suspension. I can't figure out how you guys are doing it with the 3/5 drop. I would like to lower mine and run 24" wheels with low profile tires but don't want to drop the money if I can't haul my RV. Help me out here guys!!!!

I was going to do the same and was told you had to buy an airbag rear suspension like podirtfarmer did. I was told you could haul fully loaded with this set up. Dont know if thats true or not since I never did it though.

Thanks for the pics but I still don't know how people are hauling there 5th wheels while being lowered. If I lower mine 5 inches in the rear I would seriously be nose down on the RV and my hitch is now all the way up as far as it can go. What is everyone doing to compensate for this? I know people are installing air bags but that is just to get the truck back up to level after loading the RV but it doesn't compensate for the 5 inch drop. Is there a dropped king pin hitch that you can install or what is used to make up that 5 inch drop?

Thanks
