Adjusting a Dexter 221-0031-00 Pin Box on Jayco Trailer for Bed Clearance on 2019 GMC Shortbed

Question:

Believe this company was acquired by Lippert. Nonetheless, my new to me 2012 Jayco has this pin box as OEM. The prior owner towed with a lifted F250. I have a 2019 GMC 3500HD 6ft 6 in bed no lift. I need to raise the front of the trailer for bed clearance and for level ... so lower the pin box. Can I simply the pin box the equivalent of one hole and simply re-install all six bolts per side?
