Not that that one aint pretty sweet but might be a little extreme for a 4-6" lift

I have the hitch that you posted. I love it. If it is the same one it is rated for a 1K tounge weight and a 10K trailer. Have never had an issue with mine. It will handle that car trailer without an issue. My truck was a 02 f-250 6"in lift with 39" KM2's. I paid 260 for it. I will sell it to you for 150. I am bought a new 450 and will not need it anymore.

Diversi-Tech 6" locking aluminum.
Only complaint is I have a 2.5" shank and the hitch is a 2" with a permanent adapter so it's still limited to 1.5/10k. Not a big deal tho as my trailer is a gooseneck.
