Bought and installed yesterday. I need to buy an extended shank, 4" rise. Will hopefully give it a go this weekend.

Why not just flip the hitch over with the ball on the other side? Or would that be too high?

I thought about that, but definitely need both a larger rise, and further out from the bumper. The hitch is really tucked up under my tundra bumper, which is great because its hardly noticeable

I have an aluminum 10" drop hitch, but turn it upside down for a 9" rise. I use it when towing my Jeep behind the motorhome.

Get your extension and rise all in one shot! (If it clears)

This is definately overkill. My buddie needed to get our 8X14 enclosed trailer into a tight spot with the tailgate of the trailer facing out. He borrowed a power wheel barrow and removed the bucket. It moved the trailer w/ 3 full dresser Harleys like nobody's business!

I was thinking something like this:

However, I think I have an old hitch I inherited in one of the zillion boxes I am yet to unpack. I'll dig around and see if I can find it.

That power wheel barrow is intense.
