Weight Distributing Hitch

Create a stable ride for your tow vehicle and your camper or trailer with a weight-distribution hitch. Adding spring bars to your towing system applies leverage, which transfers the load that is pushing down on the rear of your vehicle to all the axles on both your tow vehicle and your trailer, resulting in an even distribution of weight throughout. The result is a smooth, level ride, as well as the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.



Selecting a Weight-Distribution System

The tongue weight rating is the most important factor in determining which size weight-distribution system you should use. If the bars of the system you choose are rated too high for your setup, they will create a rigid ride, which can result in a bouncing trailer. If, on the other hand, the bars are not rated high enough, the system will be unable to properly distribute the weight, rendering it virtually useless.


To determine the proper weight rating for a weight-distribution system, you must first determine your trailer's tongue weight. Then add to that the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. These two measurements make up the tongue weight rating for a weight-distribution system.


Serrated Washer System

Unique Features of Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution

The easy-to-use, serrated washers on the Reese Strait-Line system make adjusting the tilt of the weight-distribution head a snap. This is a huge improvement over the standard pin-and-washer method, which involves piling washers - one on top of another - onto a difficult-to-access pin. The serrated-washer system lets you easily loosen, adjust and tighten a single washer and nut on either side of the head for simple, secure positioning.



The trunnion spring bars of the Strait-Line system slide into the weight-distribution head for quick, easy installation. With a tapered design and hot rolled steel construction, these bars offer superior flex, ensuring a smooth, controlled ride for both your tow vehicle and your trailer. These specially designed bars have rounded, hooked ends, making them the only kind of spring bars that can function with Reese's active-style, dual-cam sway control.


Weight Distributing Hitch

Dual-Cam Sway Control

Reese's dual-cam sway-control system stops trailer sway before it begins. This is a significant improvement over traditional friction-style controls, which help to correct sway only after it has already begun. This specially designed system uses unique sliding devices called "cams" to suspend the spring bars of your weight-distribution system. One end of a cam bolts onto your trailer's frame, and the other end attaches to the lift bracket via the lift chain. The rounded, hooked ends of the spring bars then sit in these cams. The controlled placement of the spring bars keeps your system secure while still allowing enough movement for free, easy interaction between your trailer and your tow vehicle.



Dual-Cam Sway Control Turning

During basic, straight-line towing, the cams lock in place and hold the trailer steady by applying constant, consistent pressure to both sides. This keeps the trailer from swaying in crosswinds. When you go into a turn, the cams unlock and slide to allow a controlled, full-radius maneuver. If you swerve suddenly, the cams will give to accommodate the movement while still working to obtain a straight angle, thereby maintaining control of the trailer.

Video Transcript for Reese Weight Distribution - WD With Sway Control - RP66130 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number RP66130, this is the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System with a sway control unit. This is a Trunnion bar design. The system's going to evenly distribute the weight over the axles of your tow vehicle and trailer for stability and control. It's going to create a more level ride for both the tow vehicle and the trailer. It's going to feature the automatically self-adjusting, self-centering sway control that's going to work in a variety of situations. Whether you're moving in a straight line the cams will lock in position to hold the trailer steady despite crosswinds. When you're going around corners or when you're cornering the cams will automatically unlock and slide to allow full radius turns.

Then, when you encounter the situations where you can't help but have sudden swerving, the cams actually seek a straight line angle to help stabilize the trailer. So, these two things right here, that's going to be your sway control system. It easily attaches to the wright distribution system via the chains. So, you don't have to mess with any U-bolts or platforms to interfere with the frame mounted items such as gas tanks, toolboxes, or generators, it just connects using the chains. Then, it will require drilling into the frame of your trailer. All the necessary hardware to get the sway control system installed is included, so keep that in mind.

The Trunnion bars are going to be hot rolled and tapered here on the ends for superior strength and flexibility. The bars will flex appropriately over uneven terrain for a controlled, even ride. Then, the sway control cams provide attachment point for the spring bars. They just sit over that portion right there of the sway control arm and so it's got that nice curved edge. It fits the contour of that really well and it's a perfect fit. The head assembly is going to feature a forged, raised ball platform that's going to eliminate the need for a raised hitch ball.

It's also going to allow you to get the desired tilt that you need. It's got the serrated washer design. So, here on each side where the shank goes, it's going to feature a serrated washer that has teeth that digs into the teeth on the head assembly. That's going to allow you to get the tilt that you need. That's also going to eliminate the need to have to use any spacers or piling on washers like you used to have to, to get the desired angle.

You can adjust the tension here on the spring bar all you got to do is switch between the different lengths to get the tension that you need depending on your application. This system is going to include a sway control cams, the head assembly, the lift brackets, the spring bars, the lift chains. It's also going to include the leverage bar and all necessary hardware. The leverage bar goes over that portion there of the bracket. It's going to allow you to get some leverage to lift up the chains in the position or to lower them, that way if you ever need to disconnect. It's just a really neat feature to help ease installation and removal. The frame brackets here are going to attach to the frame of your trailer and all you got to do is thread in the set screw, that's a really tight fit so you would need to use the appropriate tool to get that on there. So, once you have that on there you just tighten the set screws, that's going to push against the trailer frame. It's going to hold that bracket firmly in place. The adjustable ask and trailer hitch ball are going to be sold separately. This unit is going to require a hitch ball with a threaded shank with a 1 1/4 inch diameter or you can use the spacer right here, the reducer sleeve that goes in the hitch ball hole. You're going to be able to use a hitch ball with a threaded shank with a 1 inch diameter, so keep that in mind that is included.The system's going to offer a tongue weight of 800 pounds to 1500 pounds of tongue weight and then gross towing weight is going to be rated at 15,000 pounds. This system is designed to work with 2-inch by 2-inch and 2 1/2 inch by 2 1/2 inch receiver that would be rated for use with weight distribution systems. Again, that shank system is going to be sold separately. inaudible 00:04:03 in the mounting point for the lift bracket assembly, you want to mount this about 30 inches back from the hitch ball which would be this portion here, measuring in a straight-line angle 30 inches back on the trailer frame. Here at etrailer.com, you can find some optional mounts that take up less space on the trailer if you need to. These are going to require about 5 1/2 inches of space along the trailer frame. See there they got the nice opening in the bracket it's going to fit around a frame, this will not fit trailer frames wider than 2 1/2 inches. So, here on the sway control system, this portion is going to bold right onto the trailer frame, again all the hardware you need is included. You definitely want to refer to the instructions to make sure you get correct placement and to double check and make sure you have everything hooked up appropriately. Really simple system to use and to install, attached in just a few minutes. You shouldn't have any problem with getting that set.Now, when it comes to selecting a weight distribution system, the tongue weight rating is the most important factor into determining which size weight distribution system you should use. If the bars of the system you use are rated too high for your setup they'll actually cause a rigid ride which could result an imbalancing trailer. Then on the other hand, if the bars are not rate high enough the system will be unable to properly distribute the weight. To determine the proper weight rating, all you have to do is determining your trailers tongue weight and then add to that the weight of cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. The two measurements combined will make up the tow weight rating for your weight distribution system and then you can choose from a variety of options once you get that measurement figured out. That's going to do it for our review. Part number RP66130 this is the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System with Sway Control. .

Purchased this hitch to replace my 14k equalizer hoping it would be a little quieter wich it is from the few blocks I have towed with it. Two complaints I have are one it comes with two sets of instructions if you get the dual cam version you want to make sure you start with those instructions and two the hook up brackets that mount to the trailer have verry poor rivets that the bracket hinges on , one was so bad that in the up position I couldn’t get the keeper pin through and had to replace it, I did get a replacement from etrailer and it is way better , pretty sure I will have to replace the other bracket as well as there is a ton of play in its rivots as well but for now I can at least get the keeper pin in 577503

The entire package is awesome , did as promised and fixed sway of trailer. I am pulling a 33' Weekend Warrior Toy Hauler. The trailer is heavy 11.500 lbs. and has a heavy tongue weight as well. Air bags on a 3/4 ton Denali diesel and this trailer pulls straight and true. Should I purchase another tag along this will be the hitch I go with again. Researched Hensley and a few other anti-sway hitches in detail and this is what has worked. A lot to set up for every trip but does as promised and creates a level of safety comfort for me the driver. 328580

The weight distribution hitch and dual cam sway control were installed on a 2005 F250 pulling a 2003 Jayco "toy hauler". The instructions were very easy to read and understand making assembly and adjustments easy.

We recently purchased a larger travel trailer and decided to upgrade our weight distribution system. After reading Etrailer reviews and going with the suggested setup we bought the Reese Strait-Line system RP6613. Setup was time consuming and very finicky. Unfortunately getting the system setup so the cams ride in the bars properly was extremely difficult and frustrating. The weight distribution part worked great as advertised. The sway control on the other hand seems nonexistent. Equalizer WDS setup, adjustment and performance are far above the Reese systems. 151055

Works great as long as it is set up correctly. We traded our trailer in on a new one and the dealer did not set it up correctly and the weight distribution bars kept coming off the cams. The noise and shake made me think I hit something. once adjusted all is good. Still a popping noise I need to track down but not creating any issues. I bought this particular one because of the wider tongue weight range it supported which came in handy. Our new trailer has a dry tongue weight of 944 lbs and the previous trailer was 560. 635690

Hitch arrived in two boxes which were in good shape considering the weight. On opening all parts were received. Not having time to install yet, but having tested the placement of hitch, the most time needed will be checking measurement and drilling the frame of the trailer after that its straight forward bolting together. This could be a hard project if it was my first time, but can be done easily if you have the right tools The Reesee strait line hitch looks like a well design hitch witch should handle the weight and sway. Will write again when installed and towing. 316168

I recently purchased the straight line dual cam hitch with sway control. I've dealt with etrailer in the past and have always been very satisfied with not only the product but also the company. When I called etrailer I had some concerns as to whether I was looking at buying the correct hitch (12000 lb.) or needed the 15000 lb. I spoke with Nik and voiced my concerns. He was knowledgeable and we agreed that the 15000 lb. would be a better fit for my application. Within a few days UPS delivered the hitch. Really quick service. Now, I hate calling a company to order anything. It always seems you get the hard sell to by other items and it is very irritating. Not so with etrailer. We had a pleasant conversation with no hard sell. Just what I was looking for and that was it. I haven't had the opportunity to install the hitch yet but I'm sure if I need any help it's just a phone call away. Thanks Nik and etrailer. 159581

etrailer provides excellent service and fast shipping. I ordered the Reese strait line for my new 34 foot toy hauler. The instructions provided by Reese are not the best; however, etrailer has videos and made things much easier. Once installed I went for a test drive. The sway I was getting from the friction bar set up was gone. I Could cruise at freeway speeds one handed and not fight the trailer. I definitely recommend this product, and purchase it from etrailer if you want great service. 159409

I had a 30+ travel trailer pulled by my 2004 chev avalanche and had one of these system which I let go with the trailer not knowing I would need one for my mustang carrier and it worked great never had a problem so when I get it installed on motor home I will send pictures of the whole thing ..... 50884

I've had this product installed for about a year. I race motorcycles and installed this on a 35' toy hauler that use at least once a month. Hooking it up to the truck is simple with the sway bars, and it helped to greatly reduce the sway travelling down the road. Toying something that large without a system like this is a safety issue, and I feel much better toying now with it on. 588723

Review from a similar Reese Strait-Line in Weight Distribution


I have a 21 foot travel trailer that I pull with a Nissan X-Terra. Before getting the Strait-Line Weight Dist. System, the back of the X-Terra and the front of the trailer would be too low, creating a "V" at the hitch connection. In addition, out on the highway, the trailer would sway, particularly on the down hills, and at times would get so intense I was afraid the sideways energy created would force me into oncoming traffic or off the road to the right. After installing the Strait-Line system, the X-Terra and trailer are leveled out and the sway problem has been completely eliminated. I could not be happier with the results. I would recommend this product to anyone having these problems. Do your research to make sure you get the proper size for the unit you are pulling. 447176


Comments

A couple of months ago I purchased a 2017 Ford F150 with the built in sway control. The new truck pulls the trailer much more easily than my Nissan X-terra did. Although hooking up the trailer to just the ball hitch on the new truck is much easier than having to use the Strait-Line Weight Dist. System, I do find that the trucks built-in sway control, although adequate, does not work as well as the Strait-Line system does. The trucks built-in system can get overwhelmed by excessive sway and must rely on an automatic deceleration system to correct and control the sway, which can at times be a bit of a challenge until you get comfortable with it.

The hitch worked wonderful. I was scheduled to have it installed by others but when they saw the unit they got scared, I think. So, having read and re-read the instructions myself by this time, I decided to go it myself. It took all of 4 hours and the following day we left on a five week trip to the northwest US. It performed really well. We had taken two shorter trips without it and I can really feel the difference it makes in windy conditions and weight distribution. 216549

Awesome weight hitch! I pull a 28" camper with this hitch and its really nice not having to stop and break down the hitch before backing up the camper. I have about 3k miles on this setup and absolutely love it. Its also easier to store when not in use because the chains stay attached to the cams on the a frame of the trailer and not attached to the bars. So the bars arent as heavy.

I had this hitch installed at a local RV specialist shop as I didn't have access to a large enough flat and level area. The cost was about $225. When I picked up the truck and trailer for a test drive, the trailer tracked true behind the truck and I never felt any sway. The load leveling feature helped keep the truck level and I always felt I was in complete control. The only down side to this product is the noise it makes when taking sharp turns. The metallic popping noise are scary at first but I was expecting them. Overall I am very pleased with the performance of this hitch and would recommend it. 281068

Review from a similar Reese Strait-Line in Weight Distribution


I purchase a used trailer recently and have made several purchases from etrailer to include a Straight-Line Weight Distribution Hitch (RP 66084), 2 5/16 Ball (19286), RV Generator Plug (CAM 55333), Aqua Hose, sealing trim for roof and side seams etc... All of the products have arrived on time and are of high quality. The trunnion bar holes on the RP 66084 were missed drilled so I called etrailer(Laser) and he shipped me out replacement bars which arrived sooner than expected along with a return label for the miss-drilled bars. Products are quality, service is quality and inventory is exceptional. It is a pleasure doing business with them. 403322

Review from a similar Reese Strait-Line in Weight Distribution


I had experience with towing travel trailers before, but it had been a while. When we decided to buy a new trailer, the hitch setup the trailer dealer proposed just didn't seem right for the job. Doing some research on my own, I came across the etrailer.com site. From the information that was available on the site I was able to focus in on what I thought would be the best fit for my F-150 towing an 8,000 lb + trailer. When I called with questions, I was fortunate that I talked to Wayne--one of etrailer's product specialists. This was like talking to a trusted brother. We discussed a few different brands and the pros and cons; but in the end decided the Strait-Line RP66084 would be the best fit. After that conversation, I did some more research on my own and--besides discovering that Wayne's advice was fantastic and spot on--found that the Strait Line system proposed was top ranked. The features I was looking for: (1) Leveling (weight distribution) capabilities (2) Sway control (3) Safety (4) Tracking (holding the trailer steady behind you when taking curves (5) Ability to back up without having to get out of truck and manually release a brake bar and (6) simple enough to install for a shade tree mechanic. The Strait-Line fit the bill and I'm very appreciative that etrailer.com has experts--rather than sales-focused pushy people--to help you make the right decision. I've pulled my trailer with ease and the Strait-Line has lived up to every expectation. And etrailer.com's price was great and the shipping had it delivered sooner than expected. It's rare when you can say you are COMPLETELY SATISFIED with a product, service, quality, and price--but I can that about my purchase of the Strait-Line RP66084 from etrailer.com 199001

I have logged close to 10000 miles using this. I love how stable my towing experience feels. Just watch out for sharp turns. I have bought several things from etrailer and I think they are great. 266096

I just installed a Reese straight line hitch. Instalation was easy. It took me about 5 hours to install. The instructions included were easy to follow. Some tools needed are large and may need to be rented or borrowed. I'm looking forward to pulling my camper with this new hitch. 53650

Reese RP 66073, install on a 2017 GMC Sierra 1500. Used a drop shank because my truck (stock) hitch sits at 19”. Bought this product for a 7’X18’ V-nose trailer, system has a “standard” neck and this system is essentially perfect, had concerns at first. System is understandably overkill at first thought. I plan on pulling in the neighborhood of 9000lb from the coast of GA to Colorado Springs. I did not want to revisit this later on or part way through my trip! So getting this system should prevent any of the sway and weight sag during my haul. First day of install, system seems to work very well! Had concerns about the trunnions staying on at full turn but a full day of in town driving with and without load and zero issues. My setup is not a “forget it’s back there” configuration but a noticeable difference in pulling quality and stability overall! Finding something in the realm of 450’ pounds to torque the hitch ball is hard to do unless your in a specialty field. An install video online claims the rivet helicoils are 9/16, the system I received calls for an 11/16 hole for the helicoils. Local hardware stores skip right over 11/16 so if your at a lowes or the like, you will have to go with a unibit if this is the route you choose to take be very careful because going to the 11/16 setting will make for a loose fit for the rivets!! If you have the option I would suggest a 5/8” bit and file to get that snug fit that is required to ensure engagement on closed frame trailers! Other than that install was relatively painless. Lots of pulling and tightening if your having to install this manually!! 567887

I use this to pull a 3500lb travel trailer behind my 2007 BMW X3. We just completed a 4000 mile road trip with this hitch, traveling on every difficult windy curvy hilly mountain and coastal road from San Diego to Vancouver and back. The PROS: Easy to install, attach and detach. It distributed the weight well, and we had no problems with sway. The CON: It moans and groans on turns like an old man that forgot to take his pain meds. Even when it’s been lubricated. 569248


Comments

The noise you describe is a function of the metal on metal contact that provides the anti-sway component of the system. Because lubricating the contact points would defeat the sway control function, the noise is for the most point unavoidable.

I have been using this hitch for about 2 years now on my 20' flatbed trailer. It has been done everything I expected and excels at what it is designed to do. I have had my trailer loaded up to it's max weight (12k) on more than one occasion and this hitch keeps everything nice and level. I have never experienced any sway, but I am careful to load the weight on my trailer correctly. I had to use a drop shank #RP3344 since I have a 6" lift and 35" tires. My trailer sits perfectly level. etrailer is awesome - fast shipping and top notch customer service!! 121781

This is a quality product from Etrailer.com. It does everything they claim it is supposed to do. I have used it three times now since having it professionally installed by my local RV Dealer. It has eliminated the sway problems that I had been having at different times on different trips with my 31 foot Rockwood Ultralight 2701SS.

Wow-this fixed my issue. I have a Silvarado 2500 and pull a 36ft Puma camper. Weight distribution was not an issue with my truck but my trailer swayed a lot. After installation no sway issues at all. 25-30 mph winds on interstate no issues at all. No sway!!! Great product!!! Glad I did not go with the friction sway control. The system allowed me to back up with no issues. Even had to do a tight u-turn inside the camp with no issues. No noise. Can not believe what a difference this makes in pulling my camper. I still think I can make a few adjustments to make it better. Installation: took about 4 hrs-but most of that time was finding another drill bit after drilling 3 holes the bit chipped. So really could have installed within 2-1/2 hours. Very easy to install. If I had watched the video first I could have installed even faster. You will need some heavy duty tools but my in-laws had the tools. 292196

Review from a similar Reese Strait-Line in Weight Distribution


This thing works well, as advertised. It did boost the rear end of the truck up immediately and seemed to have a positive affect on sway. I was able to back up with it as advertised. The issue I had with it and what prevents me from scoring higher is despite the fact that I followed the instructions to the letter, the lower brackets are installed by drilling out holes and hammering in "blind" or knurled nuts. I was leery of their longevity and for good reason. After 1500 miles they wallowed out the holes and made one of the lower brackets loose. My solution was simply to weld the lower brackets directly to the frame and its vastly superior to the install methods they advise and works great. However since not everyone is comfortable/set up to MIG welding these on and will rely on the foolish blind nuts I can only give it 3 stars. 447030

I bought the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 12,000 lbs GTW, 1,200 lbs TW for my 18 foot trailer used to haul just under 10,000lbs of Tractor and implements on winding Tennessee roads with my 2014 Double Cab 4.6 liter Full Bed Tundra. The product works great; I almost don't realize the trailer is there. Everything is level with no drop at the front and 1/2 to1 inch drop at the back depending on what's loaded. There is normally about a 3-4 inch drop in the back. Be aware that the box will be delivered at just over 90 pounds. The installation is not technically difficult, but you will need more tools than the instructions indicate to get everything together. The high torque bolts and as well as the 450 ft/lbs ball torque require some specific large wrenches and sockets. If you go through the instructions and pieces for the actual size of the bolts required, it will save you some running around to find tools. Invest in a step drill bit and it will save some hunting. With everything in place and ready to go, this was a solid 8 hour install with a lot of low to the ground squatting and bending which you will feel the next day. If I were older (46 now), I would have a professional install this. If you do, they will need a fully loaded trailer to finish which you will also need to finish the install. There is one piece in the instructions for installing the optional 1/2" x 1.00" SELF TAPPING SCREW into the snap up braket First, this is not really optional, but the instructions indicate to drill a 9/16" hole for this 1/2" screw which is incorrect and will cause you to not be able to tighten the screw down. The whole should be 1/2". Don't be tempted to put these in before the very last step after everything is hooked up or you will be very unhappy. The snapup brakets get moved around several times between the WD and Sway Control sections. The only negative (if it is negative) is that for my trailer height of 16", the trunnions are only 5 1/2" of the ground which can make speed bumps and the like an interesting experience as the do contact the road as the trailer wheels go over those bumps. If you are converting from a normal ball hitch off the back of the truck to this for the first time, your break away wire and safety chains will now be too short to connect to the truck (in all likely hood). You will likely need to either add to or replace those as well. All in all, the system works great, is technically easy to install with all the correct tools and sufficient time. 193724

Works great on a older 28 ft. 6000lb. restored Airstream with a F150 4x4 with anti sway electronics. Without we could only go about 55 mph and the trailer would sway. The truck would warn us to slow down. The install was a bit complex we were not too sure of the angle of the hitch but we followed directions and it works. We traveled about 6k miles on two trips. It stopped the sway even at 70mph . Many a giant truck flew by at 80+ it started to sway but the bars prevented it. Backing and tight turns are no problem. Adjusting the chains require some work and disconnecting, reconnecting a pain. would highly recommend to any one . 287015

Review from a similar Reese Strait-Line in Weight Distribution


OK, I waited to write this review until I had an opportunity to really use this product. We just completed a 950 mile camping trip around Colorado. We went up and over mountains, around curves, and traveled in the interstate. All I can say is, WOW! I wish I had purchased this years ago. We pull a 7000# travel trailer with a new F150 EcoBoost. Before installing this we were pushed around in windy canyons, semis and dealt with sway descending the mountains. This product is the real deal. I can safely travel on the interstate at speeds up to 75 MPH thanks to this product. 50034

I have a 33 TT towing with an ecoboost. I think the hitch I have is too week. My TT never gets loaded over 6,500 yet I still get a bad front end drift? I think its the WD I currently have. Does this hitch really solve that problem? My TV is a super crew lariat off road package with c rated tires

Weight distribution can help handling and steering when properly set up. This system also has an integrated sway control system also improves handling and stability. With your travel trailer loaded and ready to go, having about 650 pound of tongue weight, this system is rated appropriately for your needs. If you are experiencing too much front end sway you may need to make some adjustments to place more of the load on the front axle These adjustments can be made at the angle of the head. Please see your specific installation instructions for more details.

Review from a similar Reese Strait-Line in Weight Distribution


I've been very happy with the system that we got, we put almost 7,000 miles on it in 2017 and it rode great. I added a secondary friction sway control to compliment the control provided by the leveling bars and cam assembly and over those miles it never felt uneasy. A couple of times we were in some pretty good cross winds and I would notice enough to put two hands on the wheel but the rest of the time it was almost easy to forget we were towing a 28' trailer. I'd definitely recommend spending a little time at your local Cat Scales to find out your specific truck / trailer and tongue weights, but this hitch and distribution assembly gave us the ability to tune the tongue weight into right where we wanted by the selection of the right link. The peace of mind the overall control that it provided going down the road is well worth it. 475620

  • Things To Consider When Changing from a 3/4 Ton to 1/2 Ton Tow Vehicle
  • There are a few things you need to consider when switching from a 3/4 ton like your 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 to a 1/2 ton like a 2018 Ford F-150. For starters, the 3/4 ton is going to have a stiffer suspension than the 1/2 ton. This means that although the 3/4 ton did not squat while towing your trailer, that's not to say that the 1/2 won't even though it may still have a higher towing capacity. Also, the 3/4 ton will be more geared towards towing while means it likely has upgraded...
