Question reese hitch for a lifted truck?

My truck has a 3 in suspension lift kit and 35" tires so it sets up off the ground too high to hook a trailer or anything else up too. Im wondering if i could get a reese hitch that drops down low enough to be able to hook to without standing out too much. thanks

If hes running 35s I'm gonna go with an 8" suspension lift, theres a lot of room above those tires.

But like everyone said you'll need a drawbar(ball mount) with enough drop. Search around online, theres a lot of different options out there.

Including the make your own mod. I built a 10" drop outta 1" thick plate and triple pass FCAW welds. Strong as shit!
