LIFTED TRUCKS AND TOWING

My truck has an 8in lift and im looking to get a 5th wheel Toy hauler. the one im looking at already has flipped axles and its a weekend warrior super lite 30ft. UVW 5180 lbs.

My only concern is is my truck to high for the 5th wheel?

What are you guys with lifted trucks towing?

nope its not too high... my buddy had a 8" lift on his truck and would haul a 30+ft 5th wheel toy hauler with no problem.... now you might need some air bags so the back doesnt squat down.... how is the rear lifted?

if you have stacked blocks i recommend removing them and putting a single block... the stacked block is going to create alot of axle wrap while towing... if your in the 5" block range i would look into getting a PMF traction block setup... its a block with an integrated traction bar in 1...

With the big tires the gear ratio will be way off if you havent changed the
rear. The gears may be a long way apart where it will rev in one gear and
lug in the next...

Thats a sweet looking setup! One day the trailer I will be hauling will be my own! Until then the rest of the trailers I pull need to get where they are going.

SIK-06, nice set up!!! I just got a 5th wheel and am having a few issues getting the thing level. What is your bed rail height on your truck? I already did the axle flip and I only have a 5" lift, what the heck Does anyone know what the minimum measurement between the bed rail and the 5ht wheel should be? Thx.....

I have a stock height 4x4 and I have just a smidge over a fist width between my rails and the bottom of the 5er. Maybe I have small hands...for a me a fist width is about 4-4 1/2". Truck and trailer sit close to level, but there have been a couple of times where the rails have hit the trailer. I'm thinking of adjusting the pin box or the hitch.
