The dealer knows how to install trac? If so, they never mentioned this concept.

Most of my modifications have been found doing research on forums and other sources. My aluminum Andersen hitch is rarely mentioned and is a great way to pull a 5er. 32 pounds and I can lift it with one hand. Rated at 24,000 pounds and really easy to hook up.
Keep looking around and you will find all kinds of great equipment.

Some hitches have too much side to side movement. I had a pullrite that was like that and I ended up welding 1/2" steel under each side of the head to limit the side to side movement. Solved my problem.

I have the same setup, except me truck is a 2011.
Me hitch is all the way down and the kingpin (trail air, the one with the air bags) is all the way up.
I have a long box with a flip cover.
I have about 6 to 7 inches clearance between top rail of the truck and the
overhang of the trailer.
The trailer is slightly nose high, 38 feet trailer length, measured front and back to road surface, about 2 inches higher in the front.
I hope this helps.
If you really nose high, the only correction you can do is install bigger rims/ tires on the trailer.
I'm thinking to replace my present trailer tires with LT Michelins next year, they are about 1" bigger in their I diameter, that should help me to compensate the level of the trailer.

It did not dawn me, but raising the trailer may give me an inch more; which is about what I need. Thank you.
