    Any of you guys with a 6" lift and 33's tow much? How long of a drop bar did you get to keep the trailer fairly level. 6"? 8"? 10"?

    I know, I could wait until I have my lift and tires installed and see for myself, but I wanted to go ahead and order the drop bar now and have it ready.

    You can't order it now really, and no-one can really answer that one for you as the answer will be different based on what trailer you have. ie: level for a small boat trailer will be different form an enclosed car hauler, which will be different from a pop-up camper, which will be different from a full hardside rv.

    Also with a lift, you are changing the suspension, so the rear will not squat the same when the trailer is hooked up post lift as it did pre-lift, so it's not even as simple as adding the lift plus half the tire difference to your exhisting drop. It's best to wait.

    Yeah, that's what I figured. Thanks Adam!
