I wanna tow a Gooseneck.

I wanna run a gooseneck with my f-250. But some people say that i cant do it bc of the lift and bigger tires that i have on my truck. I have 6 inchs of lift with 37s. Anybody have some advice?

you could tow a gooseneck, but you wont be able to get the weight on it like you could with e load tires and stock height.

What about tight turns and different angles of my truck and the trailer hitting my bed?

You will pretty much need a custom built trailer to accomodate 6" of lift and 37s. My stock F350 SRW w/34" tires only has about 4" extra room before it would not be safe. You are talking about a truck that sits at least 7.5" taller than that.

It could be done but the front of the trailer would be too high and you could not haul much weight because of the trailer axle loading.

A adjustable neck on the trailer helps, My bro has a 6" lift a tows a gooseneck. You migtht need to pay more attn. to clearence between bed and trailer. it can be done though.

You would have to get a trailer with a tall neck..most have a shorter neck but some of the heavyduty with deck on the neck have taller necks...You could run Drange tires just watch running extra heavy loads for long distance at hiway speeds...
