I can lower the tailgate on my 07 Tundra with a Reese hitch as well. With my 03 Tundra I had a few more inches of clearance.

You can get a tailgate replacement designed for fifth wheel trailers that has a dip in the top center of the gate. That should clear the jack on your trailer. May be better than a hitch extension or a new truck!

However it would be kind of tuff to get the topper back glass to seal to it.
