towing with a lift

hello guys and gals. i am deciding wether to put in a 4.5 or a 6" donahoe lift but am wondering about my hitch. i am currently using a normal equilizer hitch but am wondering about after i put on a lift. what then? or is there a company that makes a drop down one with all the bars and stuff?
what is everyone using?

I run with over a 6" lift and use a drop hitch that is adjustable up to a 12" drop to haul a horse trailer. I know EZ-lift does about a 5' drop max. I'd stop by a trailer place or talk to someone in the truck mod business-that's where I found my hitch. Luckily I don't have any squat as long as the hitch is level.
