I'm putting a 5th wheel hitch in a chev sortbox. It's not adjustable so I basicly get one shot at it. This truck had a gooseneck ball in it before and it's located about 4 inches in front of the axle. Anyone done this before?

In front of the axle is to far forward in a shortbox.
Do some more homework on it but Im sure it should be right over.
The center of my 5th wheel is a couple inches back on my shortbox.
If you put it to far forward some trailers wont work.
