Spend the extra money and get you an air ride pin box. We have a Reese 5th Airborne.
I have one right now (Lippert Trail Aire) piece of junk. How much good can it really do when it only moves up and down about an inch and a half at the most. It's coming off to be replaced by a MorRyde I have sitting on my garage floor.

There is actually a third option. A 11.5K or less. I bought the 11.5 to 14K one and it moved very little on my 303.You can see where the pucks are sliding and I had about 1/2" of movement of less. So I had to anti up for a lighter spring which works great. With a GVWR of 12K I thought I got the right one at first. But I am never fully loaded and am closer to 11K so the lighter spring (rubber) works for me.

I installed a Morryde pinbox trying to improve the "chucking", jerking motion in my Jayco FW. It doesn't stop the chucking but it dampens the jerking motion enough that I was very pleased with the results. I won't own another FW without installing a Morryde pinbox.

I have a stock pin box and Pullrite Autoslide 2600. (FR Heritage Glen 326). While I haven't driven to far yet I haven't noticed much of an issue with chucking. I am wondering having seen air ride and more ride boxes at cg's of they raise the height of the fw? Im 13'2" now and not looking to get much taller. Any thoughts on that?

The MORRyde pin box doesn't raise the height and is adjustable up and down in the frame just like the stock pin box. You have to purchase the MORRyde pin box compatable with the OEM PIN box so all the bolt sizes match and the holes line up. MORRyde lists comparable OEM pin boxes on line. The MORRyde SRE4000 rubberized equalizer does raise the trailer 1.25" but most of us can use the help back there to level the trailer.

The 1621 designation is the pin box bolt pattern. The box comes in long or short and the two weight classes. I changed from the SRE3000 to the SRE4000 and saw no differance in height.

And if you still have chunking after trying the MorRyde pin box and equalizer, you can always add some kind of damping of suspension using a shock kit or a sumo spring. Lots of options out there.

If you are getting a new truck and it has the factory puck including a gooseneck ball why not just get a Goose Box. No more cumbersome hitch to remove to use the bed. All the equipment stays with the trailer. The Goose Box is shock dampened and air ride adjustable. Lippert frame warranty approved.

The Mor-Ryde pin box will not fix chucking, it just masks it! Consider fixing the root problem, before installing the cushioned pin box. We had a chucking issue with our 2005 Copper Canyon, leveled the trailer when towing, installed shocks on the 5er, and got the pin weight up to 22%, chucking issues gone, no need for the cushioned pin box. If I were to install a cushioned pin box it would be a Mor-Ryde.

I would ditch the hitch and get the Reese Goosebox.
