When I hooked up the trailer and loaded everything but me, including wife and kids, I was at 1 1/2 inch sag in the rear with only 5/8 inch raise in the front.
When speaking with Nissan, they do not recommend and tried to steer me away from WD until I am over 500 lbs on the tongue.
If it were me, I would still go on a get a WDH with integrated sway control. If Nissan says it is OK to run a WDH with anything above 500 lbs., surely it is OK to run with less than 500 lbs. Getting some weight off of the rear axle and putting some weight back on the front axle will probably make your truck handle much better.
600 lb. bars should be a good match for a 400 lb. tongue weight. Has that been actually weighed, or is that speculative ??
