    It will depend on how much lift you have as well as the tires. You should preobably steal the Z71 again, take the boat to a trailer shaop, go back and get the Blazer and get them to make a drop hitch for you. I have never seen any that drop more than 6" in a store, only in mags.

    I regularly (every summer) tow a 21 foot travel trailer with my Jimmy. The trailer is a mid 70's model designed to be towed by a car and is really low to the ground. I use a 12" drop hitch and the front of the trailer is still high. I think my only solution is to do a S.O.A. on the trailer and maybe gooseneck the front of the trailer. That might be something to look into is raising the trailer instead of using a stupid big drop hitch (like I do)
