Default Level Tongue Height for a x189 FBS

I am going to pick up my 2012 x189 FBS on Wednesday. I was wondering if someone could tell me what the tongue height is when the trailer is level. I'm pulling it with a midly lifted Jeep Liberty and I need to know if I need to pick up a lower hitch receiver to make the trailer ride level when I'm pulling it. Thanks!

I have a 07 X189FBS and my hitch [ball] is 17inches off the ground.

The height may also depend on the tires and the suspension -- we flipped our axle, raising the coupler by several inches.

They do make adjustable hitch balls, so that you can get it perfectly level.

I selected the exact "rise" that I needed on my hitch ball by measuring the distance from the ground to the inside top of the coupler, while the trailer was standing on level ground.

Thanks for the replies. Our tongue height turned out to be about 20 inches which matches perfectly with my lightly lifted Jeep Liberty once the tongue weight is put on.
