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

as long as you don't lift the hitch up, or you get like an outargues 5 inch drop if you do lift it. i think you'll be fine.

Prob just need a drop hitch so your boat won't be pointing into the sky and depending on your gears you might have a hard time turning 35's and a boat.

This is what you need


That and a class 3 reciever that bolts to the truck and this just slides in and out as you need it.

This bolts under the back of your truck.


and if you need to pull out a Buddy you can plug in this.
