Towing with a lifted truck???

Is anyone towing a fifth wheel RV with a lifted truck? I have a lifted F-350 and want to buy a 5th wheel 36' toy hauler.

I see lots of people towing lifted. How much is it lifted? Depending on trailer might have to lift the trailer if its not close to being level. Also can raise pin box on some to level trailer some, but you need to have enough clearance to clear bed rails also.

Here is what I have. '02 F-350 7.3, 6" BDS lift on 22.5 Alcoa wheels. The RV is a 37" RV toy hauler loaded probably 12K lbs. I don't have the hitch for the RV installed yet. It is a Reese Super Slide though.
