I went through this earlier this year when I wanted to buy a fifth wheel. You’ll find that most half-ton model and mid-profile fifth wheels have an over hang that is 60” to the ground. Full size fifth wheels are typically around 65” to the ground. My bed rail height was at 62”. I ended up lowering my truck quite a bit. After lowering my truck and putting smaller tires on, I got my bed rail height to 56”. I have my fifth wheel hitch mounted on the lowest setting, and my pin box is at its highest setting. This gave me 5” of clearance between my bed rail and the overhang. It is still a little bit nose high, but not bad. I’ve towed it now 1,700 miles with no issues.
