No. Without a WD hitch all the tongue weight is on the ball way back behind the rear axle. The rear axle acts as a fulcrum (see-saw), so weight is removed from the front axle of the truck and added to the rear axle. That light front end can cause handling problems of the truck not wanting to go where you aim it.
Also, without the spring bars connected and tightened, you have no sway control system. Towing any trailer without a good sway control system scares the bejusus out of me.
Temporary fix is to go ahead and connect the spring bars and get them as tight as they will go. That will distribute at least some of the tongue weight back onto the front axle of the truck and make handling better. That heavy trailer can overpower the sway control system of your WD hitch, but it's better than no sway control at all.
Final fix is to replace the E2 WD hitch with a heavier-duty WD hitch rated to handle the max tongue weight you might have. An E2 WD hitch is designed so you can replace just the spring bars with heavier-duty spring bars, without having to buy a complete new WD hitch. Assuming your E2 has trunnion bars and not round bars, the heaviest duty trunnion bars available for the E2 are rated 1200 pounds max tongue weight. Not nearly enough for your requirements https://www.etrailer.com/Accessories...2-01-1299.html
However, since your trailer thas GVWR more than about 9,230 pounds, then you'll need a different brand of WD hitch that is rated for the 1,700 pounds max tongue weight your trailer could have when loaded for the road.
Ignore the unrealistic tongue weight in the trailer brochure. Compute the max tongue weight any TT might have as the GVWR of the trailer times 13% (0.13). Your Raptor has GVWR of 13,000 pounds, so you need a WD hitch rated for 1700 pounds max tongue weight.
