I don't doubt anything stated here, I just don't understand "Ours that they would refer to as carrying is in fact distributing...". Toyota isn't saying how anyone is using their hitch, they are just (as quoted in Bill's post #46) giving limits which depend on engine and on how you use your hitch (weight-carrying or weight-distributing).

Are you saying that Toyota says you cannot use your receiver for WD and yet you are successfully using it that way? If so... any 2" receiver can be used with WD gear and it will transfer load between axles; the only problem is whether or not it eventually tears apart if it was not designed for that use. This is what happened to Steve (Honda Pilot hitch receiver problem).

If this isn't making sense, don't worry about it.
