Do you tow with your JK?

I have the OR Fab tire carrier with the gerry can mounts so my 35" spare sticks out FAR. I need an extension for my hitch, but I want to get the shortest one that will work. Anyone have this set-up? How long of an extension do I need to keep the trailer crank from hitting my spare on inclines?

The jack on the front of any given trailer is not placed at a set dimension.
This being said there is no definitive answer to your question without checking the trailers on a case by case basis.
