Went to hook up the big trailer last night (20ft enclosed) to the new truck and discovered the ball and hitch are very far apart even with a large block under the tongue jack. They worked well together with my old truck  but not now.

 

I would think I could just flip it over and make make the correct adjustments to mate the    truck and trailer. 

 

Just want to be sure as this is my only experience with this type of ball.

Yes, there is a lot of adjustability to what you have there. You can flip it all just about any way it will bolt back together to give you super high or super low. 

I'm not sure if it is real or an optical illusion but in the middle picture the part the ball attaches to looks very bent.

I think it's just lighting as it was getting late but I will look at it today. Might be the peach adjustment.

Came here expecting a car purchase for a flip.

You can flip the part that goes into the truck receiver.  The ball portion needs to stay in the current orientation.

Flipping it is not a problem. Actually, I've never seen one mounted pointing up before.
