Trailer not level?

I just bought a new Dodge 3500 dually. It's much higher than my last truck so when the hitch was installed in the new truck I lowered it to the lowest position. When I'm hooked up, the 5th is about 2" high at the front. My 5th has a Reese Revolution that has no adjustment up and down. I'm thinking that I should remove the Revolution and get a regular pin box that has up and down adjustment. Am I thinking right? If so, where can I get a box like this? I wasn't able to find much on-line. Or, is there another option for this problem?

Be sure there is at least 6" clearance between the bed rail and the 5er when you are done.

Had the same problem with my 06 GMC 350. In order to keep clearance between the bed and the 5er I wound up doing what most people say not to do---I had the dealer flip my 5er axles which raised it up 4 inches' It now sits level but it is also now 13ft 4inches high. 13'6'' is the legal limit here in Pa. I did this in 2007 and have not had any problems so far.
