Don't overload the axles or tires (verify it with a trip to the CAT truck scale with your rig) and this w.d. hitch will help ensure that.
LT tires, particularly when the stock P rated tires are worn anyway, are a heck of a lot less expensive, heavy, or as fussy as those fancy hitches. Made a world of difference on my F150 towing a 30 with bone simple Equalizer.
