Trailer Hitch with 6" lift

I have a 2003 TJ with 33" tires and 6" total lift. I am needing a hitch. Should i get one with a 6" drop for the lift, or a 8" drop to include the 2" oversized tires?

that depends on the height of the coupler on the trailer you intend to pull... and by total lift are you including body lift? if so - don't.

Okay I am planning on just pulling a Uhaul trailer. And the 6" lift includes a 2" body lift + 4" Suspension lift

Uhaul can be a PITA when you bringa Jeep in for towing anything they have. most will want at least a hard top.

Depends on the trailer height and if it's a frame mounted hitch receiver or bumper integrated hitch. This is 33" tires, 2.5" lift, bumper receiver and 10" drop.

I'd get the hitch with the 8" drop. Here's my hitch with an 8" drop mounted to my integrated bumper receiver. I have a RE 4.5" lift and 35" MTRs. Worked perfect with the UHaul.

Not sure... but I don't think all uhaul trailers have the same tongue height, in much the same way as most jeeps are not the same and no two lift kits are the same. I suggest you get a tape measure and go do the math.

I have a frame mounted hitch; and I have an adjustable hitch ball; so I can adjust it quite a bit; and it wasnt too much money over a regular hitch setup.
