    The truck is a 1990 Chevy 1/2T, 350, 5spd with 3.73 ratio. The trailer is a 7,000 lb 18' car hauler PJ trailer. I rebuilt the engine in the truck about 30K ago.

    Dave,

    Do you use a weight distributing hitch with your 14K dump trailer, or just a ball/pintle or just a ball hitch?

    Our GM HD's are limited to 12K off the back bumper. I put a 15K Putnam on mine and can't decide if I should just use my ball/pintle combo, or add a weight distributing set-up like GMC recommends.

    Hi Builder,

    I put a Putnam XDR on the truck, the stock one is too wimpy, (even dangerous). With the tractor loaded on the trailer, I use a weight distribution hitch. With lighter stuff, (such as a load of firewood, etc), I don't need the WD hitch and just use the normal 2 5/16 ball. I don't use a ball/pintle at all. After having experience with a WD hitch, I would recommend using one. Big difference in ride, trailer/truck rides level, and better steering, (more weight shifted to the truck's front tires).

    Thanks for the helpful response! I wasn't sure if the WDH was worth the investment. I have the Putnam XDR, too and I think it's time to get the WDH.
