Since you have two sets of equalizer bars, I would use the 750 pound bars and barely load them up since a one ton vehicle is pretty stiffly sprung in the rear with a fairly light weight trailer like the AS. If you were towing a two axle trailer filled with asphalt shingles, I'd recommend the stiffer spring bars and crank them up tight...but, you're on the other end of the spectrum. Just my two cents.

Thanks for this link! Your recommendation goes along with what I have been thinking. I don't want to over think this but we have a long drive to pick it up and I just want to have the parts along that will get us into the ballpark without having to waste time looking for parts.
