How To Measure What Drop Is Need For A Lifted 2022 Ford F-350


I have a lifted 2022 ford f-350, and I'm needing to tow a trailer, however my truck is so tall that I can't hook up and be level. How do i determine what ball mount to get so I can tow levelly?

In order to determine what ball mount you will need to tow your trailer levelly, you will need to measure the rise and drop.

To measure the rise and drop you need, you will just need to measure from the ground to the top of the receiver opening, and then from the ground to the bottom of the coupler.

Once you have these measurements, you will need to subtract the receiver height from the coupler height and that'll give you the drop you need.

For example, if your receiver height measurement is 15", and the coupler height is 12", the drop needed is 3".


If your receiver height is 12" and the coupler height is 15", then the rise you need is 3".

We do have a bunch of different options like the adjustable B&W ball mount # BWTS10037B which has a 5" drop and 5-1/2" of rise, or the Reese fixed ball mount # 45123 which has a drop of 5", and a rise of 3-1/2".
