Which gooseneck extender for short box

yes, I am sure this has been discussed before. Maybe I did not enter in the proper wording for it to come up in my search.

My truck is a 2008 F250 supercrew 4x4 short box. It has a B&W blip hitch installed.
I just purchased a new ATC 40' aluminum race car trailer. This trailer has the normal front..not angled or rounded. I have not hooked up to this trailer yet, but have been told it will knock my window out if turned to sharp. I see B&W sells a 4" ball extension, and other companies sell 9" extension that go into the trailer side. Wondering which one would work best?

yes, but I don't think they really get the clearance you need. It does not move the center point for your turning radius. It does move the trailer back, but when you turn, you are still on the same centerline (side centerline) If you look at the pics they have, you do not see them doing it with a normal trailer. The fronts are rounded on theirs.

I use the 9'' extender from pop up it gave me enough room to put the tailgate down when hooked up to the trailer. Our horse trailer has the front squared off also. You just have to be aware where your trailer is at all times, especialy when backing up.
