    Trail Air pin box install

    I bought the used Trail Air pinbox and installed it yesterday. Not much to mess up but I made sure it was level with the trailer. For some reason it doesn't look right when hooked up to the truck. It towed just fine. It's like it's tilting the hitch head down. Take a look and let me know what you think.

    It doesn't look quite right. According to the instructions, the upper jaw should be level with the camper...yours looks that it's angled up. Was it mounted in the same holes as the original pin box? Is the air bag inflated enough?

    Edit: As you bought this used, is it the proper one to replace the OEM pin box...looks like they have 21 different versions. Here's a link to fitment chart... http://www.ultra-fab.com/images/prod...hichpinbox.pdf#

    Dave,
    Thanks for the comments. I called Lippert with all part numbers before I bought it and they said it should fit. If I angle the head down more, the back bolt holes don't line up.
