I went with the 14K setup. I sold a 10K setup to get the 14K. I called the manufacturer, Progress Mfg., and described my situation. Due to the potential tongue weight of 1200lbs plus they recommended the 14K/1400. I think the 10K bars are fine but the 1000lb tongue weight limit of that model could be a problem for the 28BHBE when loaded up.

Logan... Thanks for the info on your setup, let me know how it works. I had to drop my L Brackets to level the Bars to the Frame, I think I am at 6 Washers but have to double check. The F250 suspension is a lot softer than I like so I added Air Bags and I am still playing with the WDH / Air Bag setup. I wish I could have found a 350 with Gas like I wanted optioned out but no luck. I drove all the way to Brandon Ford to get the one I got.

olyerl... I have a 12k setup, that was max for my F250 Hitch. I had a 10K before with our Hybrid (probably 600+ TW) without any issues but the 28BHBE is much heavier. I do my best not to overload the tongue.
