I have a 2007 4x4 Ram and it is the perfect height for my 2014 Winnebago fifth wheel. I do have a Superglide hitch which I believe is a bit higher than most others. If I ever replace this truck I have no idea what to do as so many point out the new 4x4 trucks are too high and I use 4wd.

Ford supposedly lowered their 4WD trucks some in 2020 but I still found them too high for my 31 ft 5th wheel

My 2020 F350 is exactly 2" lower than my 2016 F350 at the tailgate

That is what's so nice about the Rear air Ride on the 3500 RAM's it keeps the loaded and unloaded bed height at 55" top of tailgate.

Well that right there would make me change my mind about Rear air ride , 55" would be perfect , might even have to raise the hitch to get level .

Six years and 83k later it's been 100% trouble free.

Not sure why Ram an GM doesn’t give this info.
2021 Ford

F-150 58.3”
F-250 4x2 57.8”, 4X4 60.0”
F-350 SRW 4X2, 56.7”, 4X4 59.7”
F-350 DRW 4X2 58.1”, 4X4 58.9”

*Raptor 5th-wheel towing is not recommended.
