I have to believe I'm not the only one pulling a trailer with a Ram 2500 (I've seen too many posts here). What are you doing to get your hitch ball low enough? Thanks in advance for your advice/expertise.
I have a buddy with a 2014/2015 (not sure which) Ram 2500 4x4. It is high in the back for sure. (He tows a 5er, so I don't have an example from his truck.)
I tow a TT with my F250. Of course it doesn't sit as high, however I just upgraded my hitch and shank... so I have been doing a lot of shopping.
One good source is etrailer.com. You can search on shanks and you should find a lot to choose from.
How heavy is your trailer? If you're finding the 2-1/2" shanks have limited variety, try the 2" shanks. Unless you're over a certain weight, the 2" should be fine.
