Flipping axles

My wife and I purchased a 2016 F262GRX Wildcat Maxx this afternoon. My question is that with a 2009 Ford F-350 SRW, 4 WD, will I need to flip the axles on the the new trailer in order to have it level, or is it OK as is? Thx

If it has torsion axles, I don't think you can.

I had to get a 3" lift kit on my 5'ver when I got a 2014 Ram 2500 and it still could go up another inch.

Interesting. I was concerned when I purchased my 16 371 REBH but towing it with my 15 F350 SRW is sits pretty darn level.

I have a Factory lift kit, installed at Goshen last summer. Tow level with my F 250 and stock truck tires.

I found my bed level is 1.5 inches lower with the F 250 over the F 150. The side walls of the bed are 2 inches lower leaving more clearance all around.

Great news - hooked upnthe new rig yesterday to take home and it sat perfectly level. Very pleased about that. One less thing to fight with. And, the trailer towed great!
