Good deal.

If you need to come up 4"....

The standard shank is a 7" rise which is what your current one looks to be.

This one is a 10"

Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank - 12" Long - 10" Rise, 6" Drop - 600 to 1,400 lbs TW Equal-i-zer Accessories and Parts EQ90-02-4300

and this one is a 13"

Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank - 12" Long - 13" Rise, 9" Drop - 600 to 1,400 lbs TW Equal-i-zer Accessories and Parts EQ90-02-4400

If it were me, Id get the 13" unit, set the head where it needs to be and then cut off the extra.

Well, as far as 1/2 ton towable goes They really mean a half ton with the max payload rating. And it is barely within that weight. Your truck and many others fall far short of that plus you added a canopy which must weigh 300 pounds.

I am glad you are getting close to the proper set up. Just be aware that you are close if not over some weight categories without loading it up. Get a good 3 pass weigh ticket and verify your load. Might help to know whether you can move some weight around and how much is transferring. Have a great week.
