Mine has a lift and 35's. I pull a 40ft. 5th wheel with and it sits pretty level still. I have yet to hook up to the gooseneck yet. Its my dads and I dont use it much but, when I hook up my 5ver next week I will try to post a pic of it. You shouldnt have any problem with a gooseneck. I have lifted all my trucks and never had any issues once the adjustments are made to the trailer. Between the bed and the trailer there is only 6 1/2", but if I drop the pin box I can get 8". But the trailer rides a little high in the front and at 15k, I like it to be level as possible.

to be honest i'm sure that 90% of all the lifted 4th gens here don't tow goosenecks Hell I destroyed the plastic bed crap on the sides of my bed with my gooseneck and I don't even have a lift

Lift your trailer. You can do it. There's other threads out there. I'm on 37's and I'm gonna lift the trailers to accommodate. And before the safety police come in, I've pulled with lifted trucks before and quite frankly I don't notice much of a difference at all. Compared to those worthless 245's that came on my truck, my 37's feel much more planted and calm while pulling heavy. My .02

Lol would be funny to watch. Dude I've had people call BS on me all day about my fuel mileage but no lie hand calc'd, I got 18.8 last tank. This is almost entirely highway driving, but leaving fort worth the other day I was in traffic for like a steady 2 hours. I run a no power tune. Not looking to blow stuff up, just don't wanna fill up 3 times a week.
