What size drop do I need for towing with a 6 inch lift and 37's

How much of a drop do I need for towing if I have a 6 inch lift and 37's so I don't have problems towing my trailer with quads on it ?

Thanks to everyone for your help
Tom

You need to measure the tongue of your trailer to the ground where your trailer sits a little bit nose high, then measure the same distance from the ground to your hitch and subtract the measurement of the trailer.. All trailers differ in size and heighth

Yeah my buddy custom made his own for his 05 that was 6.5" on 37's... ended up being like an 11" drop if I remember right...

Most of my customer's use a 8 or 6" depending on what trailer they are pulling.
