tow with lift?

I have a 3" toytec lift and I am most likely getting a 3" body lift on top of that. Will I still be able to tow things such as a jetski or small trailers with this done to my truck? Any feedback would be much appreciated it.

Yup but because of that body lift your trailer hitch will be sticking out like a sore thumb just like the rest of the frame.

Yep, just use the proper drop for the hitch ball to accomodate the lift.

yeah, don't do the body lift. waist of money and does nothing for functionality. You'll still be able to tow as your hitch is mounted to you frame and the body has nothing to do with towing.

you will hate towing with a body lift.
get air bags for the rear if your truck isn't towing level.

Well, I need to get a body lift because the tires I have are too big.

Big tires are not very good for heavy towing either. They will negatively affect your effective gearing ratio.

the issue you probably face is rubbing the body mount, in that case lifting the body will not solve anything. plastic can be trimmed, just forget the body lift
