    yes 12" is deffinately to low, By the time you put weight on it your looking at 10" then the height of the ball has you down around 6" off the ground.

    Your top of ball should be approximately 18"-20" for a truck height.

    Go measure your tow vehicles ball and account for at least 1" of drop.
