Perfectly fine so long as your fully loaded towing position is perfectly level, or slightly nose down on the trailer. Setting this up is detailed in the towing bible.

All it will cost you is probably a new deeper drop draw bar for your receiver.

If you were intending to tow from a ball on the bumper then you'll have problems, but I do not advocate towing with a ball through the bumper even on a stock truck.
