My similar trailer with off road package is parked leveled in driveway. From ground to bottom lip in front of coupler is 14-7/8". I estimate the top of ball height would be 17" to fit in the coupler with the trailer still level.

I have to jack tongue up a bit to get it high enough to make it over the ball, then when I lower it till all the weight is on the ball, it obviously sinks some until I close the latch on the ball, then jack it back up again to take off enough tension to put the WDH trunnion friction bars in place on their brackets attached to the trailer frame. Then crank up the tongue jack until it is fully raised and all weight is on WDH.

Thanks! I'll be flipping over "L" portion or the W/D hitch to get it that high!

Just looked at the L portion on my hitch head, it's pointing down, and the hitch head bolts use the very bottom hole on the L and the top bolt is several holes above that. My F150 4x4 receiver must be a bit higher than yours. I'm using a Fastway e2 WDH.

btw, go into 'USER CP' at top of page and add your tow vehicle and trailer model to your signature line, makes it easier to ask future questions, we will know what you have.

Yep, same hitch. I'm as high as it will go pointing down, bottom of receiver is only 12" on my GMC Canyon Turbo Diesel. Wolfpup had 2" ball, can't get a confirmation on 19FBS
