The 2015 has a second hole in the front and back shackles. The dealer toldme that they would do it with just the cost of labor (no parts needed). So Idid myself. It took about an hour and a half. The second hole is 2-1/2"below the top hole. It raised the fifth wheel about 1-1/2". Now I justneed to lower the hitch 1" and it will be good. Then I'll have at least6" between the tail gate and fifth wheel per Husky's spec (have7-1/2" now).

Went down to where I store my trailer doing some upgrades on it. Welding a custom generator stand that wont drag on ground. I leveled my trailer out measured the distance from ground to bottom of trailer is 56 1/4 inches the top of my truck bed is 57 1/2. It would need 7 1/4 to level it out on my truck. I will probably lift if 6 inches and add bigger tires cause it has 15 inch rims on it now. Probably go with 16 inch rims to put truck tires on it. Also mine did not have the 2nd hole for adjustment and has cre3000 on it.

One of the issues with taller tires is the distance between the axles. When they lift it, see if they can spread the axles a few inches to accommodate the tires/wheel package you are thinking of. You may also want to have them install Mud Flaps.
