Set up the Anderson hitch on my 14 Sierra then towed the 31 foot Windjammer to the Smokey's from Michigan. The best the TT ever towed even had to lock up the brakes once.

X2 on weight distribution..seems best under 900#. I am at 600+ with 4 threads. Puts about 200# to the steering axle

Very happy with mine. Over 12,000 miles last year, and atleast 25 hook/unhooks.

You should not be trying to raise the rear back up to stock. You should be trying to drop the front back down to stock. Raising the rear end back to stock would likely overload your front axle, so don't worry about that.

If you have any front measurements, that would be awesome!

Been considering switching for about a year now. I haven't pulled the trigger, however. Maybe I'm misreading posts about the Anderson Hitch... But doesn't it seem that the guys that are having no issues and saying "works great for me" seem to mostly all have a 3/4T and up?

Exactly... I'm the same way I would like some feed back of those that have it with the 1/2 ton truck and around 900 ish tongue weight. My trailer fully loaded would be 8600 lbs.. Seems like most that have it of at least post have the larger trucks..

It took me a while to get dialed in as the brackets kept sliding on the frame I believe because of my 950 TW. Once I added supports for the brackets, it was easier to drive as more weight was put back on the front axle. Probably because each time I hooked up something had changed on my set up. I am a happy puller now- but I also added sumo springs to the rear for extra support.
