Another option would be a longer tongue than lift arm, that way the mechanical advantage of the load is lessened and you will be less likely to lift or lighten the rear of the tractor.
This is a good idea.

I would think you would want it as close to the tractor as possible to reduce lift. Same principle ans when loaders are rated for lift wt at the hinge pin vs the end of the bucket. 3 ft of tongue and a 3 ft lift arm is a lot of lever. I suspect you could lift the rear of the tractor with a 6 ft lever without straining.
Your idea is a pretty good one, my brother had a lift like that mounted in his pickup and it was very handy.

I can pick up a complete tractor with this thing.
