Tongue Weight (for Weight Distribution calculations) = trailer tongue weight + vehicle cargo load behind rear axle. Don't get one that's rated lower than your actual tongue weight, you may damage the WD hitch and it wont be nearly as effective. You need to get a hitch that has a tongue rating as close to your actual tongue weight as possible, as long as its not rated too low. The GTW rating of the hitch needs to meet or exceed the actual weight of the trailer, going higher is just fine. So considering you tongue weight is #832 (assuming you don't have any cargo behind the rear axle in your bed.
I see a few on that site that's rated at 1200/12k and one at 1k/10k. I don't know what your load is of if it changes but personally I would go with air bags. That's what I use and its adjustable to any load up to 5K. Which means you could have your #832 tongue weight and a little over 2 tons in your bed or you could hook up a different trailer with a 1200 lb tongue weight and 500lbs of cargo in your bed and all you have to do is change your air pressure and your good to go! A setup is about the same price too.
