Picked up the new fiver today. Some pics of it on my TV. Forst one is setting it up to the truck. We got it about as good as it gets. I have the 6 inches of clearance of the bed caps. It is slightly nose up but not bad on level ground. The second pic is us practicing setup at the farm.

Sorry for the crummy pics but it was really bright today so that throws off the camera in the phone.

I had a 2013 Silverado 1500 CC 5.3 and I pulled a Lacrosse 301rls.It was 7014 dry weight and it pulled along real well. Didn't try it in the mountains before I upgraded.

Thanks for the replies. I have some questions on my setup and hope that those of you that have half tons and big trailers could respond in the towing forum.
