@dsfloyd, the Master Lock 2841AT is still sold; Tools Now, an Amazon vendor, has it on Amazon's site for about 80 bucks. I looked at it and liked the concept, but in reading the reviews I noticed multiple individuals reporting that there's a dead zone where it can't adjust. (i.e. it can only do about 2" drop to 7" drop .... and 2" rise to 7" rise; it apparently cannot do anything between +2" and -2".)
I toyed with the idea of a 10" drop Rapid Hitch from Andersen Manufacturing but felt that'd be too much for most of my needs (and was worried about scraping in some situations). If I find I need more drop it I can simply order the 10" shank and transfer the other parts to it, when needed in the field ... in 20 seconds flat, which is a win. Spendy, though...

I could see where the +/- 2" would be not useable as you cant adjust through the block, but thats where the screw drive is for the adjustment with it loaded, plus with the height of my truck I am not sure where I would even use that. every trailer so far has been at the bottom of the drop. I liked the Idea of being able to adjust loaded. the larger drop one was simply a solution for the really small trailer and probably wont be used for anything else, the angle was just rediculous with the 7 3/4 inch drop. I saw the one you got and its a very nice hitch, and is one that I had looked at when I was checking out hitches. And isnt everything way too spendy, especially on our trucks.
Also, the mods you have done to your truck are looking great. I will have to hit you up if I need help/advice when/if I ever get around to upgrading the big 3.

Thanks for the compliment; just shoot me a PM if you have Big 3 questions or if you think I can save you time on material selection; the upgrade is easy but the devil is in the details. (1st rule on this one: don't skimp on your wire; avoid CCA.)
