I have a 2021 Ram 2500 6.7 L Cummins with the 6.4 foot bed.
And recently I purchased a 2008 Forrest River Sierra 25RL 5th wheel.
Now I can tow it without issue as it is, but the nose is high due to the case of the higher side rails and high beds heights.
The axles are flipped, I have 16 inch tires, I can add risers, but the easiest thing to do is to raise the B&W hitch and/or raise the pin box in the mounts to lower the front.
And there is my issue, 3-4 inches of flange material that hangs below the pin box, with very close to the rails clearance.
Lippert will not say this is ok, but I get that.
But my question is this; "Is cutting off that excess material something done?"
My years of welding and fabricating tells me it's Ok, but I would like to hear more from others for this issue first.
I think notching the rear corners off with a cut off wheel would be Ok.
thanks for your input.
