Anyone using one? Tips for installing one? What exactly do they do? Have heard they reduce sway, help with braking, and many other things. If you have one... which one, price, did you install it or have some one install it... Thanks.
Some good information here http://mrtruck.net/wdh.htm That's where I got mine from I'll let you know how it works after this weekend.
[SIZE="1"]2008 WK Overland HEMI - Modern Blue Pearlcoat
Fully loaded with slush mats of course.
MUST GO! 1994 Limited ZJ 5.2L V8 - Light Driftwood Satin Glow
It's a 94 5.2L Limited - trxus 33's on 15x7 steelies, 4.56s w/ front OX and rear trutrac, NP242 swap, novak shift kit, Kevin's ultimate 4.5" lift + ACOS, ARB front bumper w/warn M8000, rear tomkin machine bumper w/ tire carrier, kevin's hardore railz, kevin's ultimate tc skid, kevin's trackbar conversion, rusty's gas skid, flexalite efan, Kolak's performance ignition and brake upgrades. ViAir OBA, custom storage/sub box and I'm sure there's a bunch of other things I'm missing. Everything is a little over 3 years old with less than 10K miles. Looking to get around $4k.
mine is a Quality S model with a max of 1,000 lb tongue weight...and is the two bar trunion style setup...that bolts on...
bought it used, so I don't really know the part number...
basic premise is that it uses the leverage of the long arms (like on a wheelbarrow) to put 1/3 of the weight on the front tires of the tow rig, 1/3 on the trailer tires, and 1/3 on the hitch/rear tires of the tow rig...
I have an equalizer (WDH 10,000 lbs model). I have never used one before and all I can say it was worth every penny. I towed with it for about 2300 miles and the trailer moved with the vehicle and no swaying. I tow with a Ford Excursion and a 16' foot trailer. Tow rig, trailer, and Jeep weighed about 15,000 lbs. It was easy to install. I like the Equalizer brand because it is both a WD and sway control. Just $.02.
