Good news, I can help.

What you will want to do is get a different ball mount. The current ball mount that you have # C45571 has a length of 7-1/4" from center of hitch pin hole to center of ball hole and a rise of 2-5/8" (from top of inside of hitch opening to start of vertical curve). It also has a 1-7/8" ball.

I recommend a long ball mount like # C45591. This euro ball has the 1-7/8" ball and a length of 11-1/4" from center of hitch pin hole to center of ball hole with a rise of 3-1/8" (from top of inside of hitch opening to start of vertical curve).

Another option is to get the 9-1/4" long # C45520 ball mount and 1-7/8" # C40001 ball.

Both these ball mount setups will give you the clearance from the bumper you need to tow your trailer without being concerned it may damage the vehicle. To pick out the best ball mount height for your vehicle and trailer, we have a Help Article that I've attached to this page for you to check out.
