    i'm sorry but if the truck can't handle the load be it a plow, trailer whatever you need a bigger truck not some little wheel rated to hold a few hundred pounds holding your heavy trailer on by only a few small welds

    I can see that this would be a benifit maybe a few times a year. As I farm, and carry 15-30 bags of seed corn for a day in a 1/2 ton truck it would help. Along when it is spray time and hauling chemicals.

    I also haul split wood to burn, but a full load just makes the rear end squat not requiring this device.

    It would not pay to have a 1 ton dually for what I would use it for.

    I don't think I'd buy that, for a few reasons.
    #1- Price seems awful high
    #2- Seems flimsy with one wheel
    #3- Seems like it would be a pain too

    I used to have this problem with my truck squatting pulling my mowing trailer fully loaded with grass and mowers. I installed more leaf springs much cheaper than I could buy that for. They're always there so I don't have to worry about it anymore. Granted it rides a little stiffer, but it don't bother me.
