Default 2wd double lifted/ towing

Hey folks, could anyone tell me if being lifted effects towing, In other words, I have put on a bodylift/SPL with 35's tires, Would I be able to still tow my boat and trailer without any modifications, Thanks

you will be fine, just maybe get a hitch adapter to make the ball lower so the boat aint really nose high.

yeah your fine bru, you cant tow with the bumper at all, but you can tow fine with the tow package, just do like 01dangerranger said and get the right drop for your trailers.

you're also going to need to re-gear. 4:10's and 35's wont barely get out of their own way. let alone pull something.

what hitches for sale? if you are referring to the sale items, that thread is gone a long time ago, or are you talking about the many 1,000's hitches at my brother in law shop? if so than you would have to schedule a time i can make it to the shop and you pick it up.
