Look at the ratings on your truck's receiver hitch as well.
Typical 1/2 ton factory receiver ratings are:
1. 500lbs hitch & 5000lbs trailer without a weight distributing hitch.
2. 1000lbs hitch and 10,000lbs trailer WITH a weight distributing (WD) hitch.
Right off the bat, your tractor BY ITSELF exceeds the 5000lbs trailer rating, so you will definitely need a WD hitch to avoid damage to your truck.
Next, if your trailer is much over 2000lbs empty, you're going to exceed the ratings on the receiver even with a WD hitch. A trailer large enough to carry a WD-9 will run 2500-3000lbs empty.
Even if you decide that extra 500-1000lbs is nothing to worry about, please use a WD hitch or upgrade the receiver on your truck to a heavier version.
