Tundra owners with 5.0TA

I have the lift kit on the trailer, a six and a half foot bed gooseneck the Andersen hitch, so which way do you guys have your Kingpin block facing towards the truck or back towards the trailer?

Always put the king on ahead of the ball, otherwise the pin box gets to close to the tailgate and bin sides.

I tried it the other way around, but quickly changed it back. This is the way that Escape mounts them on the 5.0TA.

I agree with Jim.

Besides, with your 6 1/2' box you have no need to get the camper further away.

Enjoy,
