How come the hitch looks / or is down so much from bumber? tilted?

is that how mine would be with a body lift then ?

never lifted any trucks I have had, so hope it's not a dumb question.

It's not tilted any. Thats the bend in the tube. The receiver part is still level with the ground. But yes, like Demon said, with a body lift it will be that much lower than the bumper. But, IMHO, it looks better than the straight ones. Don't let that be a factor when deciding if you're going to do a body lift. It really doesn't look that bad...I'll put up a wider pic.

Heres a couple wider pics:



I've gotta have it on there. I need it for my trailer, and you can't tow with the bumper anymore after a body lift...unless you leave the bumper on the factory mounts. Then you'd have that gap above the bumper.
