5th wheel hitch

My new 2011 truck sets up higher then my old and the king pin hitch now will hit the side of the truch bed. I have the receiver hitch up as high as it will go, but still not high enough. Anyone have this problem and a fix?

Unfortunantly, no. At least not easily. If you do get it high enough, most likely your fiver will not ride level.

It sounds like you may need to flip your axles to raise the trailer. Look under the trailer and see if the axles sit on top of the springs or under them. If on top the axles can be moved to the bottom and raise the trailer. Mine came from the factory this way already so I didn't have the problem.

I agree with edatlanta. Another option is to go to 16" wheels and tires if your don't already have them. Going this route you can go with taller LT tires plus get a higher carring capacity. If you already have 16" wheels you could just go to larger tires. Filped axle and larger tires should do the trick for you it did for me. Good luck.
