I'm curious how all these lifted trucks sit with a gooseneck or 5th wheel on them...

I was wondering more on the SAS trucks running 37's and how much clearance they lose between the bed and the goose-neck, how the trailer sits because I know they have limited adjust-ability and such.

a leveling kit won't change the height of the hitch in the truck much. Trucks with a real 4" or 6" lift on the rear supsinsion will cause issuees with some but not all goosenecks.

Im noticing all the SAS and 4" lift trucks are always photographed with pumper pulls thats why I was asking, I guess some trailers have a taller neck than others then?

a 5th wheel camper would be an issue almost always, they have minimal clearance to the bed rails. A gooseneck is more adjustable but you'd have to watch out for throwing it out of level and putting more weight on the rear axle of the trailer versus the front. I saw on pirate one guy cut his bed rails of his dodge down about 4", did a real nice job, was the only way to get the clearance he needed.
