Some hook-up photos.

Center of hitch is approx. 30" back from cab. Box length is 5'-6".
Keep in mind, this unit was raised for a taller truck!

I turned the trailer almost 90 degrees, and still have approximately 1" space before the trailer would hit the cab of the truck.

Also a photo hitched up with tailgate down.

I love it when a plan comes together!

I can't imagine steadying my nerves to cut those holes on the first TA.

I have to admit that i always thought the original 5.0 with a single axle was a little odd looking, this looks awesome. looks balanced and just right .

Thanks for posting the pics of the 5er hooked up. I was concerned I may have to purchase a longer bed truck and really didn't want to go with a long bed. Too hard to park at work, etc.

swoon!
