I'd still suggest that you avoid adjusting the king pin. You'll have enough adjustment of the hitch for adequate safety. My hitch is set 4 3/4" below the truck's bed rails and it can still be raised one set of holes or another 1 1/4" higher.

I'd only adjust the king pin height if I had no more adjustment at the hitch.

What hitch are you planning on installing?
