4" Lift on my stock F250
I own a 2012 F250, PS. I have the Off Road package, and 20" tires.
My old 2005 F250, had 17" tires.
I tow a fifth wheel, but have not towed it with my new truck.
After backing my truck under my 5er, and hooking it up, the 5er now sits
at an angle. If I adjust the hitch up on the 5er, it will sit awfully close to the
bed rails of the truck. Someone in one of the RV forums suggested replacing the 4" blocks on my rear axles with 2" blocks. Wouldn't that make the truck sit unlevel, front high. He also said there was a Ford TSB for this, but I can find no evidence of it.
I would hate to either put holes in the bottom of my 5er, or bend the back
of my bed rails while towing.
The guy at the RV place said to replace my tires. Not an option, I don't believe.
The only other option is to see if the fifth wheel company has any type of lift kit for it, which may make the 5er sway more, due to being 2 or 4 inches higher.
Any thoughts are appreciated.
