Awesome picture! Best of luck with the level issue. You may want to contact B&W, see if they have a solution.

Just noticed my first post says 2014 Ram. That is a typo. It's a 2010.

Thanks. Not sure what BW could do. It's not a hitch issue imho as if the hitch was lower it would give unacceptable rail clearance.

So is it safe to assume it is a trailer/truck issue? The combination just doesnt work well together? That is what I am scared of....getting 2 brand new units and them not working well (ie not able to get level) together

I don't believe one can get this level with a truck this height and a box with walls this high and maintain 6" of clearance without mods. If you look at the 1st page it looks like Careys f150 isn't level either. From looks if he went and measured I'd guess it's off. Here's a pic underneath

Just finished putting the subframe under it to get it close to level. We did it in two days. Also added the wet bolt kit. Replaced those stupid plastic bushings. Lol

Jackofall, how is the subframe working out? Still good? Anything you'd do different?

I replied to your pm so you should have one in your inbox.

I believe it tows better than before. Certainly no worse. Have noticed no top heavy symptoms or instability. Have towed over 5k miles since install. It's made it a lot easier getting in to dry camping areas in national forests etc. We do 95% dry camping and a lot just out in national forests not in campgrounds. Am 100% satisfied so far. I've got between 7 and 8 inches of clearance above the bed as I need it where we go.

I haven't measured the overall height. This was a net 5" subframe as I pulled the 1" they had on the bottom of the I beam and installed the 6. By specs it should still be under 13'. I'm still not quite level but it's close and I'm happy with it. I'm planning on upgrading the wheels to 16" wheels shortly which will also raise it some (not the reason I'm going that route...just want better tires).
