Question Original Weight Distribution

Can someone please tell me what the hitch looks like for this set up, or should i just replace the whole thing. I have seen some on craigslist and ebay for 20 bucks...and new sets as low as 200...

That is the Reese Dual Cam sway/wd set up, 1st generation. It has been around a long time and works quite well. It requires a Reese ball mount hitch head that accepts the trunnion ends of the lift bars. Very common, very good.

Use gen 1 on both my 34's love them work very well. No sway ever, keeps everything level and tight. I use 800# bars tight. I tow both with a ford excursion 4x4.
I have upgraded all components to the ultra frame spec components. Early ball mounts were prone to weld failures, new design is a cast frame
