Hey SouthCo, great writeups! Do you happen to know the height of your receiver tube on your truck? I'm looking at a BlueOx Sway Pro for my 28BHBE (2014 with aluminum sides) and am a little hesitant about which shank I need. Right now, I'm thinking I will get the 9-hole extended shank. That should give me enough drop to give me a slight nose-down attitude, and the longer horizontal length will allow me to open my tailgate while hitched up.
MIFL19H; what is it about the aluminum sides that disallows a slide topper? That's something I'd like to have someday, but I have a long list of expensive upgrades ahead of it at this point. After a HOT weekend at a state park last weekend that we had to cut short because there was no escape from the heat, a second AC unit has made its way up to near the top of the list...
