I towed this for 1100 miles on a 42" stinger (7,200lbs), truck never knew it was there. No adverse handling and I was in 60mph gusts for 60 miles at one point.

Hi, for only 3-500 lbs of tongue weight you will be good. The 48" Torklift extension is good for up to 600 lbs without weight dist.

I would not exaggerate it.
I had aluminum dually with 12' TC on it without modification and with camper only rear still was 2" higher than front.
But when I put 48" stinger on it and hook my 3500lb boat, even with tongue in the range of 300 lb, I was scratching driveways with end of the stringer.
Mind my stinger is straight 3" tubing mounted in factory receiver.
Torklift Supertrust add 2nd beam below, so additional 3" drop.

Well Andy, I only tried to explain what could happen. I am sorry that you took my response as a personal attack. It was never meant that way. I wish you good luck.

Please continue to ask questions and offer suggestions on this forum. I will not reply to your comments any more.
