    I've used a Husky WDH previously on my Tacoma towing our 4800# camper and now my 18' Raptor.
    Works very well when you follow the directions...
    Here's a quick video, great product!

    If I were you I'd call Deaver and speak directly to them about what you're trying to accomplish. There are A LOT of uninformed opinions on this forum. Have the professionals at Deaver walk you through your options. Yes I'm talking a new spring pack but they can fashion it so it won't detract from the trucks abilities when not loaded and possibly even improve it while not sagging under load. Any other solution would be for pavement driving..at least in my own uninformed opinion. I took my own advice as I also tow an off road trailer camper. The results have been spectacular.

    I tow a 6,200lb trailer with my Gen 2 on stock springs with WDH and it tows great. This is the best weight distribution kit IMO and the one I use with the 4" drop: https://andersenhitches.com/Catalog/4-droprise-wd-kits.aspx
    It's really simple to attach/detach, has built in sway control, and doesn't require disconnecting it when backing. It's one of the more expensive kits but when you figure in that it comes with an adjustable height hitch ball it's actually a pretty good deal IMO.

    If you buy this kit I recommend welding the frame brackets to the trailer. On my application I could not get them tight enough to where they wouldn't move. I finally welded them on and no more issues.
