Rock - your new 36FBTS has adjustable Axel's on it - just call your dealer, or Jayco, they will tell you how to raise the 5'er to level the towing experience.

The clearance will be the same between the bed rail and pin box which is good now. I need to lower the truck or the front of the FW will be three inches nose high. If it was to low I could just raise the hitch. I just bit the bullet and ordered four new 275 BF Goodrich T/A KO2 ten ply all terrain tires to drop down the truck. 265 stock would of only dropped it 1/4 inch more and the 275 are an inch wider. I will see how this works on my next trip around xmas. I will put my two new 315 tires on Craig's list. They only have 4K miles on them

Rock, I've towed my FW 2-3" nose high since '04 and never had an issue with tire wear on the rear axle. IMO, and I said this elsewhere, 3" isn't bad and, if you're really concerned with tire wear, swap the FW tires around every 5k miles, or so. In 11 years, I've never worn out a tire on my FW, only replaced them due to age; same with all my FW and TT friends with 1 or 2 exceptions that had bad axles or hubs that caused alignment issues.

I think in the back of my head what was bothering me the most was overall height and not the three inches. Factory spec with second a/c is 13ft 3 3/4 inch. Three more high is over the interstate heights. My big thing is ripping up the top on tree branches. So after beating myself I dropped the money on smaller tires. Going to miss how truck looked with those 315 tires. I plan on rotating the tires yearly. Just my summer trip to the Adirondacks is 3k round trip.
