Drop Hitch? How much drop?

I have a stock 08 lariat with the factory sized tires. How much drop do i need for a regular tow behind trailer. I used a buddys 4" drop on his trailer and it seemed to do fine. I was just wanting to know what you guys were using. Seems to be alot of 3 1/2" and 5 1/2" drop hitches out there but not so many 4 or 4 1/2".
