I just got it in the mail and hope to see if it fits tonight. I measured it and it has 8" from center pin hole to back of bracket.

Awesome ! Thanks for the pic too.
Can I ask you what the measurement from the ground to the pins is on your toad ?

I hope to get and test mine this coming week.

Well I got the blue ox with an 8-inch rise. It does clear the back fine. I'm just hoping it isn't too high. I am not airing up until Monday, so I can't measure until then.

I ended up getting a Roadmaster 8" rise hitch rather than have one fabricated. I have 1/4" clearance to the back bumper and the Roadmaster tow bar is level at 24" from the ground when the airbags are inflated.

Regards,
Fred

I'm going to be at about 2.5 inches inside of the three inch max. Just made it.
Someday, when I hit the lotto, I will have one built at 6 inches, but until then,
this one will work.

Thanks all !!

Late to the discussion, but when I was battling this I tried to get Roadmaster to make me one to use with THEIR TOWBAR, no dice. My hitch guy built me one. If I recall, Seeg was able to get Roadmaster to build him a 6" rise with the extra length necessary. I'll try to dig that thread out later.
