Superglide in 2011 2500 or 3500SRW

Is anybody towing a 5'er with a 2011 2500 or 3500SRW yet? Specifically with a Superglide hitch.

Looking for information regarding how much bed rail clearance you have and does the new truck make you nose high while towing?

Don't have a Superglide, but do have a 2011 3500 DRW with Reese Select 20K hitch. Have about 6 inches clearance and 5er (Montana with Mor/ryde pin box) rides level. But remember the Duallies only come with the 235/17 tires. SRW and 2500s have other tires as options which will change bed height.

Was just reading some of the posts, and decided to join. I have a 2011 Silverado 3500 duramax with a super glide hitch in it. I previously had a 2005, 2500 Silverado duramax with the super glide hitch. I contacted Pullright before I purchased my new truck because I knew GM changed the frame on the 2011's. They didn't have any info on the new frames at that time. They were really great to work with and I struck a deal with them that they would use my truck as a template to build the new brackets for the hitch mounts, because they couldn't find a local dealer that had a 2011 truck yet.

I drove the truck down to their facility (350 miles) and it took them the better part of a day to design and build the brackets. They also installed my hitch completely with no charge to me, for the use of my truck.

I have a 2004 Mountain Aire 5th wheel, the 2011, 3500 sits about 2 inches higher than my 2005 2500HD, I have about 4-5 inches of clearance between trailer and bed rails. I didn't have to change my pin box height at all, but I did have about 1-2 inches more clearance on the 2005 model truck. I've only used it twice and the nose is level. The truck has 18 inch wheels.

Hope this helps
