Just because its rated that high, doesn't mean you will be capable of towing that high. Jeep will not cover damage (in that case negligence) for going above and beyond factory ratings. Having it for added strength when at factory ratings is ok tho. This will also be mentioned in the fine print of the WDH when purchased new. And 8k-10k WHD should be more than enough ( and I think the lowest rated I've seen for WHD).So far I have a brake controller to install and I’m about to purchase a used Curt WDH with sway control. The WDH is rated for 1500 lbs TW and 15000 lbs GWT.
