I'm not sure where you got your tongue weight information from, or whether you are even within the safe towing weight limits for your Jeep.
If you have a 2-door 2009 Jeep, with the optional trailer tow group option, then your maximum loaded trailer weight should not exceed 2,000# (or 3,500# for the JK 4 door Unlimited). The maximum tongue weight load limit for 2009 JK's is 350#, per Jeep/Chrysler.
Let's assume for discussion sake that your unloaded Jeep weighs 4200#. So, if as you say your total weight is 6600#, then your trailer would weigh 2400# (Is that loaded or unloaded?)
As a rule of thumb, you should have somewhere between 10%-15% of your trailer's weight on the ball mount, or 240# - 360# for a 2400# trailer.
When you add people, a full tank of fuel, and other gear to your Jeep, it seems to me that you could be "weigh" overloaded, regardless of your weight distribution hitch. Or am I missing something?
