Towing and lift kit

I am looking at buying a F-250 that has what I presume is a 6in fabtech lift on it. I live on a farm and ranch and do a lot of towing with gooseneck trailers. Would I run into any problems with towing a cattle trailer withe the lift kit??

Most Goosenecks won't clear a 6" lift. That and if there new lift rear springs it will squat..may need air bags.

I tow a lot too. I am going with the 4 inch. A 6 inch will clear a gooseneck, but if you get off the main roads you will have clearence problems. I wouldnt suggest it.
