I went from F150 to 2500hd night a day difference I now get excited to tow my camper and when I reach my destination I am also not worn out from driving. I have a equalizer hitch that I have used you both trucks. With my setup I hardly even notice a difference with or without the wdh. Only time I felt a deference is when I had high cross winds when I wasn't using the wdh and only thing it felt like was how my 1/2 ton felt when I used WDH. Also my truck doesn't even sag in the back or lift up on the front end. The only reason why I put it on is for the sway part and thats if I am towing it more then 2 hours away. With that being said my trailer is about half the weight of yours at only 5k fully loaded. I would for sure use the WDH all the time with your trailer being it comes in around 9k and a lot longer. You'll love towing with
The 3/4 ton no tail wagging the dog any more.

WDH or not with 3/4 ton, that is the question

I think the best response is "why wouldn't you?" It appears you already own the hitch, so just adjust it for the new truck. IMHO, no such thing as too much when it comes to truck or hitch. I tow my 287 bhsw with a 2500 and use a wdh. Hardly know it's back there until I look in the mirror.

I tow my 28BHBE with a 3500HD and would not do so without a WDH. Safety is paramount while towing on the hiways IMHO, for my family as well as yours. Having invested upwards of $70k, an extra few hundred for a WDH (whichever one you prefer) only makes sense to protect my rig and grandchildren.

The WDH transfers weight to the front axle. A pound is a pound on the rear axle. The weight difference between the two trucks is not that great.

YES......again for all reasons already mentioned. I also think your receiver has a lower load rating without a WDH.

Yes but why the question, you already own the wdh from the previous rig. With that much weight, yes yes yes. Why not???
