    Default Weight Distrabution Hitch

    I know a few guys use these. I plan on running one with my new trailer. OK So this is the combo I am leaning towards.

    I use the weight distro hitch but I have a 40" extension because of the slide in camper. I have no need for the anti sway hitch. You may not need the weight distro for one jeep but I would recommend it for two, or maybe air bags to help prevent rear squat and "floating" front end.

    are you talking about towing with the durango? or the CTD? with the CTD just load your junk and roll. i never ran a WD hitch with our old camper, it was 12k and 32'. just get a set of airbags since your 3/4 doesnt have OL springs. or does it? i know mine does.

    *edit* i would recommend running through the scales a few times with the rigs loaded a few different ways to find out the best way for the right tongue weight. i know the scales at the road ranger are nice people with to work with.

    Towing the Durango WITH the CTD, but with the lenth of the trailer and the future possability of towing 2 rigs I am going to go for it, But I will also leave the ability open of towing with the durango in the future
