How to Pick Out Drop Ball Mount for Truck with 6 inch Lift

Sounds like you are trying to determine what the correct rise/drop ball mount you'd need to tow a trailer level with your truck that has a lift kit on it. You'll need a ball mount with a decent amount of drop most likely but here's what you'll need to do.

Basically you will first measure the height from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on the hitch while on level ground. Next, you will measure the coupler height from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler when the trailer is on level ground.

Next, you will need to compute the difference. If the hitch height is greater than the coupler height the difference is the drop required. If the coupler height is greater the difference is the rise required. You will want to pick the ball mount with the rise/drop closest to the difference.

I also attached a help article on how to do this as well.
