The issue isn't so much your Yukon as it is that the X23b has a low ground clearance to begin with...

My old Kiwi 17a was 15 1/2 inches. My X20E is 17 1/2 and it's plenty high. Interestingly enough the hitch on my Sierra is 2 inches lower than my old Trailblazer was. So I had to buy a much shorter shank.

Let me qualify my post... I have an '04, and I know that the early X23B's were notorious for low ground clearance. I honestly haven't measured it, so I'm sure it's raised a bit since those older model years...

My 17a was an '03 so I suspect that they were/are the same height. All you can do is use a longer drop bar. The bottom of my drop bar was only a few inches from the road. It only dragged on a driveway once or twice. In ten years of owning that trailer the ride height was never really a problem once I learned what to avoid.

I can't comment on the height of the 23B as it compares to other TT's, but I know my Yukon is higher than many, luckily they sell what I needed, oh boy more money already! I guess I should get used to that, I am super excited about my 23B though, it is perfect for what I want! Thanks all.
