Mine is mounted 1/4 in. ahead of center of the axles. That is where all my hitches have been mounted. I know they don't belong behind the axle.
My hitch is a 16k Reese slider.
I was hoping for more feedback, but maybe the others aren't sure just where their hitch is mounted. A lot of times people take it for granite the dealer/installer knows what they're doing, and never give it another thought.
Anyway, thanks for the feedback. I appreciate it.
