3'' BL question - pic request

Anyone have a pic of the factory reese hitch with the 3'' BL. I'm thinking of doing a BL but I wanna see how bad the hitch looks first. Thanks

Its a body lift, the hitch mounts on the frame. So when the body is lifted 3" the hitch stays in the stock location.

Cut your valance or move them. Most people just cut the valance.

That I do but i'm gonna have it redone. Got 3 1/2 tips on there now and wanna go back to 3'' plus I wanna test out that offroad Super 44. Not sure how I want it setup but haven't really put much thought into it yet. For the tow hooks i'll just do without b/c I don't really wanna cut my valence.
