Borrowed a friends ball/hitch and it appears to be the same length from pin to ball as the OEM kit (7.5"), but when in place the ball sits almost under the back bumper of the RR... Is this normal? I realize that the trailer hitch sits over it, but man wouldn't that be a better design if the ball was out from underneath the truck?

thanks for any input

The rear hitch receiver isrecessed because of the need to maintain an aggressive angle of departure for off-roading. So your hitch requires a long stinger to stick out far enough. I have the OEM one as well as one that a local truck accessory place built me, and although I can't remember how long it is in inches, it's long enough to clear the bumper but not by much.
