It really all depends on what your tongue weight is, how much your hitch can handle and where you are at with weights on your truck. Having a higher percentage of tongue weight isn't bad- as long as you're not exceeding ratings.
Even the front hitch for the truck is going to add weight to the truck's total weight in relation to it's GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating) and, of course, the front axle weights.
It's all a balance.
Here's a link to etrailer.com for front hitches:

You would then need a nice hitch-mounted rack - my recommendation is Thule. They're expensive, of course- but well made.
