The PullRite SuperGlide hitch has been available for more than 15 years. It's heavy and expensive, but it works great. I've been very active on Ford diesel websites since 1999, and I've never heard of an owner of a shorty pickup that didn't like their SuperGlide hitch. Their only complaint was the weight of it if they had to take it in and out of the truck often.
...05 2500 xtd cap short bed 4x, ... also are my weights ok with 10.4k dry-12.4 loaded trailer, pin around 2400lbs loaded, believe trk good for 15k max, dont want over weight trk engine, trans & brks,
You don't give the GVWR and the wet and loaded weight of your 2500, but I'll bet you're overloaded over the GVWR of the truck when the trailer is tied on. Your GVWR is probably 9200 pounds. With a 2,400 pounds hitch weight, that leaves 6,800 pounds for the wet and loaded weight of the 2500 before you tie onto the trailer. And I'll bet the CAT scale will show that your truck weighs a lot more than 6,800 pounds, including people, pets, tools, jacks, coolers, bedliners, hitch, and full of fuel.
And no, you probably don't have a 15k tow rating. Whatever your actual tow rating, it can be achieved only with an empty truck with no options and nothing in it except a skinny driver, so the wet and loaded truck weighs only (GCWR minus tow rating) before you tie onto the trailer. Also, the tow rating ignores th GVWR of the tow vehicle, so it tells you the weight of the trailer it can pull
but ignores the hitch weight you can haul
. And the hitch weight is usually the limiter that causes you to be overloaded on a pickup with single rear wheels (SRW).
