Did you note the weight for each trailer axle? I have the 07 Tundra crew max 4wd but my 31' AS weighs less. The weight ratio of my TV axles was similar to yours and the AS rear axle weighed less than the front axle. I shortened the WD chains by ONE link and the result was the AS axles then weighed the same and about 125lbs transferred from the TV rear to the front.

thanks , not sure if my bars are to much. Do I need to go to 1000 lb bars, or does it make a difference.
