I have a 2010 F250 6.4 and recently looked at my stock trailer hitch and noticed it was rated for 6000 lbs non weight distributed and 12k weight distributed. I have towed 8k numerous times on the stock hitch with no weight distribution with no problems. Now that I know my trucks hitch is only rated to 6k, I am a little worried I am borrowed time. Does anyone have any input in the potential risks of running more than 6k on the stock hitch without WD?
Do I really need to get a hitch rated to 12k, or a WD setup?
P.S this seems like false advertising on Fords part. They make it seem like the F250 is ready to pull 12k in stock form.
