2014 Bullet 308BHS Hitch Height

Just got a new truck and need to determine if I need to rise or drop the ball hitch. I won't get to my trailer for another month so does anyone know the trailer hitch height for the 308BHS? Looking for the height to the bottom of the coupler on level ground of course. Thanks!

Do you have a WDH?

Someone may know the hitch height of the trailer but you will probably be much better off to take measurements when you have the trailer and then adjust the hitch.

I totally get that but I am trying to see if will have to get a shank with a larger rise/drop than the one I have now.

Most of the bumper pull trailers I install WD on have been between 18 and 22 inches ground to coupler.

I don't know about the trailer in question but the height from the ground to the lip of the coupler on my 319rls is 22 1/2". I don't know what kind of truck you came out of or went to but when I went from a Ram 1500 to a Ram 2500 I had to buy a new extended shank for my equalizer hitch.

If you can I would wait until you can take measurements. The shank itself was $297 if I recall. Not a cheap mistake to make.
