I posted earlier in the week about clearance. I have 8 1/2'' from the bottom of the neck to the top of the tailgate so i raise the neck up to were i have 12''. Trailer sits at a little bit of an angle. I was wondering whether this would put all the weight of the trailer on the back axle or if it would be alright. It's a 24' tandem axle trailer. I plan to haul 2 fourwheelers and a mud truck. Just wonderin what people though

is it still at an angle loaded or just unloaded? A slight angle isn't bad. You will be able to tell if it is too much by if the back tire wear faster!

You should only need about 6 1/2" from the bottom of the trailer to the top of the bed.

Thats unloaded. Like i said i only raised the front about 3 inches. I'm just worried bout gettin in hay fields and stuff and getting into the bedside or the tailgate with it.

Having the front up higher than the back won't make that much of a difference on the tires as long as it has a slipper leaf spring setup (pivoting hanger in between the front and rear springs). If it's a torsion axle setup, level is definitely better.
