No I don't think so! Good stuff to know. I appreciate all the inputs, but I can't imagine larger wheels would make that big of a difference. I could see maybe a noticable difference. I live in Washington and believe it or not at least 50% of the trucks here are lifted and most of those are 3/4 to 1 ton deisels. And I can't recall all the times I've seen lifted trucks pulling TT and fifth wheels.
So I know we can make this work safely!
While I was reading up on stability/sway hitches, I learned most of the shanks are adjustable and some adjust as much as 6 1/8 inches down and like up to 10 inches up. Does that sound right? If I'm reading that correctly, it would more than compensate for my lift and the adjustable shank would fit into my receiver without a drop.
