Moved them back to 30" that's what my instructions say. Then move Like L bracket up 2 holes. Measured on a flat surface back wheelwell 39 1/4" unhooked 38 1/4" hooked. Front 36 1/2" unhooked 36 3/4" hooked . Seems easier when pulling now. Will weigh it again before heading out to Mount Rushmore in 2 weeks.

Your wheel well measurements sound to be pretty good. But I would drop the L brackets down one hole and add washers to your hitch head to tilt it down. Your L brackets should be at 32" from the hitch if possible. Less than 32" if needed. How many washers do you have on your hitch head now? equalizer recommends using 4 to start with. These are the washers I am talking about.

If yours is a 12000 pound Equalizer, your instructions should look like the ones on post #28. It is what my 12000 pound hitch came with.

I just noticed yours is an E2. Mine is an E4, that might be the difference.

Pretty much the same installation instructions for both of those.

One word of warning! Go easy and do NOT over torque the nuts holding on the L brackets of an E2. Don't ask me how I know and heed this warning
