Default towing with a lift

So traded in the 08 for a 12 about 2 months ago and i love it. Been planning my upgrades lift tires exhaust. My question is just as the title says how will this thing tow if i put a 4 or 6 inch lift on it. I am mostly wondering about sag because i tow my wife and i's horsetrailer and it sagged the back end a little more than id like. its a steal 3 horse slant load weighs in at just about 8k pounds with 3 horses fully loaded maybe a little less. I know i can get bags for the stock height but i have no clue if i can get something if its lifted. any help would be greatly appreciated thanks in advance.

From my experiences with lifts i dont do em anymore because i tow. It sags alot from what i noticed with lifts but i know there are guys that do it. If you do i would definately get a set of air bags. I may be wrong because i havent had a lift in 5 years but when i had em on my older trucks it really soften the suspension alot.

Out here in Cali the Desert Rats tow their toy haulers to the desert and dunes with huge lifts. Doesn't seem to be any kind of a big deal.

Bilstein 5100's at 2.8. Fox 2.0 rears. MBC Razors with Goodyear Duratracs. Airlift 1000 air bags. Mopar Tow mirrors. K&N air filter. Mopar rock deflector. More AR's than you can shake an AK at.

The 4th gen will sag even without the lift.
With some lifts you can still run airbags. That's probably your best bet
