Default Hitch height... Has it changed from year to year?

I just got a 2019 Platinum a few weeks back. I was hooking up to my camper and noticed that my weight distribution hitch rides different than on my 2012 FX4. Does the rear of the new models ride higher than the older ones?

It was the same for my 2011, 2013 and 2017.

to be sure, WDH should always be re-set for a new TV.

Both trucks have the same size rims? Tires? That be my first guess on the difference....

Yep. Best answer.

I went ahead and redid the whole setup today.

Not sure WHAT the difference is. Could be tires and rims. Or could be any number of things which changed in 7 years. Whatever it was, it DRASTICALLY changed the way my WDH was working.

I find the new trucks ride higher then the older trucks and they also tend to squat less especially if you have a higher payload number. All these factors play a roll.
