I experimented a little with the WDH to see what was best. On the way home I raised it one link and it sat level.

I really wish I had gotten the equalizer hitch instead of the eaz lift but at the time I bought it, I didn't know the difference.

Loving this combo, and getting 14 + MPG (Canadian) while towing at 60 mph.
Nice looking combo!

Good looking combo

Do you have air bags on your 2500? I believe the 356 puma dry hitch weight is around 2500lb correct? You're sitting pretty level in that pic.

From others experience that I have talked too that have had both, the Equlizer has a lot better sway control.

Air Bag question

Hey guys I am new to this towing stuff. I have a 2012 GMC 2500HD Duramax pulling a 2009 Wildcat 31TS. I purchased truck last summer and the trailer this spring. The trailer weighs 9850 unloaded. I guess easily you can put another #1000 in the basement without blinking an eye plus whatever you put in the bed My question is are the air bags worth the extra money and what is the HOT Setup as far as brands and such. The truck has all the power I need it looks like the rear is a little light in the rear if you know what I mean. I haven't put that many miles on it yet but have noticed the bucking somewhat.

Thanks for the input

Nice setup you got there. I have Firestone airbags under my rig. It really helps smooth the ride out when driving on rough roads.

There is also Air Lift that is pretty good quality along with Firestone airbags. Worth the money to ride level and smooth.
