I just purchased a 2007 kodiak hybrid 195 want to make sure we tow it safely, what type of weight distribution hitch you would recommend for my 2001 toyota 4runner sr5 4wd. I currently have factory installed hitch and brake control. Thanks

The most important factor to consider when choosing a weight distribution system is knowing the tongue weight of your trailer when it is fully loaded and ready to tow. The weight distribution systems that we carry will list a tongue weight range. You should choose a system that has a tongue weight range that encompasses the tongue weight of your trailer.
Choosing a weight distribution system that is too heavy or too light for the tongue weight of your trailer will not improve your ride quality or reduce sag like a properly rated system will.
I have attached two articles for you to review that cover weight distribution systems and how to determine the tongue weight of your trailer. These articles should be helpful when choosing the best weight distribution system for your 2007 Kodiak Hybrid.
Once you have determined the tongue weight of your trailer, I would recommend taking a look at our Reese Strait-Line and SC systems. I have attached a link to these systems as well as a link to all of our weight distribution systems for you to check out. I would recommend going with a system that includes sway control for a more comfortable ride.
If you would like to send me the tongue weight of your trailer, then I can make a specific weight distribution system recommendation for you.
