That kind of tongue weight would make my 2500HD squat straight to the ground while the same pin weight of a gooseneck would be handled fine.

You must have soft springs on you truck. My trailer (14,000lb.low pro deckover) weighs 4,200lb.empty and 7,000lb. tractor (thats total of 11,200 lbs. and 15% of that is 1,680lbs tongue weight). My trucks hitch only drops 3" with this load on no where near on bottom.

My truck has a 3300# payload. Came stock with overload springs. Only difference between my 2500hd and a 3500 is the dual tires. That's a lot of tongue weight and far over the capacity of the factory hitch.
