Blue ox and jay flight

Sorry if this has been covered but I was wondering if a 1" or 2" rise ball is necessary with the blue ox wd system? The directions say 1" rise for 5" frame tongue or a 2" rise for 6" frame. Anyone know what the frame size is on a jay flight? Or if a ball rise is even necessary? Thx in advance!

I Don't know your model of trailer, but my 26 RKS, and most others I've seen have an inverted coupler. The coupler is welded to the bottom of the "A" frame, and you shouldn't need an extended ball.

I agree with Tim L.

My 26BH had the coupler on top and required a 2" riser for my Centerline hitch. Now my 29QBH the couple is on the bottom of the frame so no riser ball was required.

This is on top correct? Which means I'd want the 2" riser.

Yes, you need a 2" riser. Otherwise you will end up with this...

At first I couldn't believe that I did it while backing up, not even a sharp turn, but the second time I saw it happen. The trunion cam just cut right through that frame.

After looking online I've seen the jay flights both ways. Top and bottom coupler location. Don't understand the variations
