Which Hitch?

Iím interested in a Reese WD hitch. Iím towing a stock í64 Safari 22ft. After reading forum Iím looking at the ďReese High Performance Trunnion Weight Distributing Kit with optional dual cam sway controlĒ. I prefer to not drill holes in AS frame. This setup is available in 600, 800, and 1,200 lb. tongue weight models.

What is the stock tongue weight of a í64 Safari? Iíd think itís <600 lbs.

Can a WD hitch be too heavy duty and cause damage?
Does tow vehicle gross weight help determine which model to use?

Does Reese part #R66020, 600 lb Trunnion Bar WD Hitch kit sound like proper setup for í64 Safari?

TVs are F-150 and Jeep GC. I know GC limitations, short WB, unibody, underpower, etc. Itís what I have to transport people for now. Roads are Alaska and California mountains and in between.
Yes, we have electricity in our igloos now and heaters for the dog sleds .

Anyone have new thoughts on which wd hitch or a used wd hitch setup for sale?
