2 Part question.

I've got a 250 Tremor with the 6.7 and I cannot decide between the 5 or 7" drop B&W or going with a weight distribution anti sway hitch.

I pull a 23' toy hauler that's about 8k loaded.

If I go with the B&W will the 5" work? I don't want to go ant longer than I have to.

As far as the WDH, are there any with a 3" shank?

Thanks,

Go 7 there are times when you need it. I have the 5 and with my small atv trailer its too tall.

no way it will bottom up or drag on the ground.

yes get a 3" and be done with it no adaptors. less rattling

get the 3" shank. Go 7". I've got that size drop and it's versatile for various trailers depending on tongue weight.

I got the 3" shank with 5" drop B&W on F250 with the 6.7. Let me know if you need any measurements. I off-road a good bit and actually did drag in one spot this past weekend. But then again I went through the same spot another time and was able to manage without dragging. I did NOT want the 7" for this reason.

I only have mine in for towing. No need to bang a knee or get caught up off road.

I keep mine under the rear bench and only put it on when towing. I keep a factor 55 hitchlink 3.0 in the receiver at all times

I have the 3” shank, 7” drop and love it. I needed the extra for a few of my trailers. If you‘re concerned about going deeper than you have to measure it out and see if the 5” drop will work for you.

Just watched a video in these on You Tube, looks like a pain in the ass to install evertime.
