Question on WDH Setup

I just bought a 2013 F250 6.7 and I will have to redo the setup. I was pulling with an F150. I have watched several videos on youtube and read till my eyes hurt, so I believe I'm ready.

Now for the question:
This is supposed to be done on level ground. However, my driveway slopes a bit. This slope is about 4" in 80'. So one knows its not severe. Is it the same thing as level to make sure the trailer frame is equal from the ground on both ends? The truck will be sitting the same and the measurements from the ground on front and back would not be different on level ground.

Oh yea, its a concrete driveway completely flat.

Yes it is the same thing (close enough) to be equal measurements. Besides it is hard to find a truly level surface anyway. A few inches one way or the other over that distance will not factor in.

The easiest way is to measure the height of the frame rail between the axles. this are is almost a constant height regardless of slope.
