New to 5ers, lifted F250 CC LB, will it work?
I have an 05 F250 6.0 SRW lifted 4.5in, and on 35's, and am looking at my first 5th wheel TH. I do not believe it is lifted, but do believe it was sold from the factory with the axles flipped, just nothing more.
I do not currently have a 5th hitch and would need one obviously, but before I commit to buy(the price is right), and get the hitch installed, would it even be possible to use my truck being lifted 4.5 and being on 35s? Or would I have bed rail issues and too much weight on the rear axle of the TH(twin axle)?
They towed it with a Chevy 2500 Durty, CC, but it was not lifted at all. The pics show the TH as having just a slight incline to the nose, but I'd say it was only about 1inch from front to back.
The TH is a 99 Thor, 32FT, with 6ft being over the bed, dry weight 6100lbs so pretty light really. My truck is not a dually, and I do not want to unlift it as I just installed all new shocks, and steering stabilizers etc.
I do have several bumper pulls as well I am looking at but they are more $$, and I've always wanted a 5th wheel. I am selling my bumper pull TT tonight and have 2 drop hitches depending on if I get another bumper pull already so no cost for hitch in that case.
I would prefer not to have to lift the trailer as it will haul my race bike or golf cart depending on event.
