The problem with a body lift is that you have to cut the bumper in order to fit it around the frame at 2" higher.
After installing the 2" raise brackets, my solution was to simply move the bumper rearward by one hole in order to keep it intact. I have towed a 3000lb trailer with no problems with this set up.
Or you can do like Sky96744 and install a receiver hitch...

Good catch bandidolenny, I tow with a reciever. I didnt set my bumper back up to allow for towing. I wouldnt even try towing with just my bumper after installing the 2 inch body lift.

bandidolenny did a custom setup to allow him to tow off the bumper.

you dont want to tow with the bumper unless you find a way to make the brackets stronger
