I'll keep you posted.
BTW -- With my new lift / tire combo, this will raise the trailer 4". the riser kit alone is 2.75" of lift.
I am running almost 11" of drop on the shank - 4" would help raise the trailer as well as the plumbing in the back - have ran into a place where the plumbing was lower then the curbing that the tube had to go over.
can you post a picture of the kit and possibly a part # - I might be intrested in this kit
Unless I decide to go back to stock tires and then I may not even need the kit but well worth a looksy for that cheap amount
