WD Hitches send some of the trailer tongue weight to the front axle of your truck. (it does this by adding torque through the spring bars) This is why tongue weight ratings for your truck are higher for WD hitches, because both axles are sharing the load. It JUST increases tongue capacity and NOT towing or GCWR. Towing capacity doesn't care if it's a Ball, WD, pintle, gooseneck or 5th wheel.
