I'm trying to get some more info on clearance. Anyone running a Rigd Ultraswing Mega-Fit with a FWC Hawk on a Norweld Tray? I've found one picture on facebook, but can't find any additional info.

I have one, but have a regular hawk on a ram 2500. Can look at some measurements for you,  What do you need to know?

My apologies, I didn't get this notification for some reason. Thank you very much for the offer. Here's what I'm looking for:

1. Red Line - Inside top of Tire down to where the tape measure would meet the frame.
2. Green Line - End of hitch to where it would meet that same Red line as mentioned above.
3. What Size Tire do you have mounted?

Don't forget to take rim size and offset into consideration.

I will measure tomorrow, 5/21.

I have a 285/75 R18 mounted . It is effectively a 35x 11.5, mounted on stock rims from a 2016 ram 2500.

I will get a picture or two for you as well, if I can  figure out how to upload on this site( not great for high res images.

On mine I am 36" from top of the carrier hitch to the point of the tire that sticks the farthest forward. It is like 40" to the top of the tire. The tire is about 4.5" from the truck hitch. I have a 37" tire with 5.8" backspaced 17x8.5 wheels (25mm offset). The carrier has two hitch pin holes and I am using the most forward hole which holds the carrier back. The tire would have been to close to the camper if I used the other hole.

Other numbers: with my tire and wheel, edge closest to camper is at 37.5 inches. This is the red line. The green line measures at either 4 or 5 inches depending which hole you use. As above, I use the more forward hope to push the tire back a bit. I have the table available from rigd as well as a shovel mounted. Also my setup uses the adaptor rigd provides for a 2.5 inch receiver. This should not affect the measurements.
