The hitch looks fine. Our WJ 3025 has been to FL and back and never sways with our equalizer 4 . I would head to a different dealer and get a longer 90 slug and hook up level. Good Luck!

I have the Eq wd hitch for my 3065w Jammer seems to handle fine. The only issue I had with my unit was unhitching the tt. Even the dealer had problems so they replaced the coupler under warranty. The replacement coupler was mounted lower on the tt frame, they needed to adjust the wd hitch along with the ball height, made everything WAY to low, I was afraid of bottoming out and dragging the hitch. The replaced it again and put the coupler on top of the frame, the tt and my F250 are level and rides great. I agree if the dealer installed the hitch, they should fix it. I have not towed my Jammer in high winds, probably wouldn't if I had a choice. I am still a little green towing something this large. 6 hours is my longest tow in one day, wasn't bad but I was glad to stop for the night.

I've had a hensley with an 8" drop shank on my 3/4 ton dodge no problem with cross wind up to 45 so far. With a hensley you don't have to mess with those force bars you simple turn a knob with a ratchet to level the units. Just open your wallet is the only draw back

Again, thanks for all the responses to my questions. Just got back from a 450 mile round trip to Marion NC (edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains). No real problems with the wind (only 15 - 20 MPH going there) or Tractor Trailers. I did feel the push from the wind and the Tractor Trailer's bow wave, but there was no sway following that. I was traveling between 60 and 65 most of the time. Since I feel the push from passing tractor trailers when I'm not pulling our trailer, I'm figuring this is normal. (Right?) Based on my limited experience towing, I'm impressed with the Sequoia - it definitely has the engine (5.7L) and the transmission (in Tow/Haul mode) to make me more comfortable.

I used this set up this past Saturday as a frontal system was blowing thru. 2 friction sway bars, 1 on each side. Wind gusting probably in the 35 mph range. Just when you would start getting used to it coming from one side, it would switch and come briefly from the other side. Kept my tires near the max psi and speed under 60 mph. The faster you go, the lighter you are. And also harder to control your vehicle. Averaged 9.3 mpg.
