Default Drop hitch on a 2015 2500hd silverado

Im heading uo north to pick up a 2013 ranger 620 and i am wondering if any of you are running a similar setup? It looks like i will need a signifigant drop hitch to run level with the ranger?

I have a 2013 F250 with a 6" drop. Could use a little more, but I think 8" would be to much.

4-10 inches is common for a pickup to pull a boat trailer.

If going to pick up a different rig, just pick up a variety of drop hitches and use the one that works best for you. Then, return the unused hitches.

I prefer the use of a fixed drop hitch rather than adjustable height hitch.

Be safe

I would get something like this:

They aren't super expensive and should cover the height of most any trailer you haul. They will also handle up to 12,000 lbs.

If 8 inch is to low and 6 inch to high you can use a shank riser ball. http://www.curtmfg.com/part/40033

That gives you a 7 inch drop. I needed to use that on my Lund to get it nice and level. I think I have a four inch drop hitch. That made it into a three inch drop.

I'm running the same truck you are. I pull a 2010 ProGuide with a tandum axle trailer. Boat is 20'10". Point is I'm running 2" drop and everything is level. Extended cab, 8ft. box. Just saying, Paul
