I couldn't get the e2 600/6000 trunnion  setup to work correctly with my '18 Tacoma and Rpod 171.  

After lots of back and forth with e2 support and my sending them pictures, they determined that the hitch head was defective... either welded together wrong or holes drilled wrong.  

In any case they are sending me a new hitch head and a pickup slip for the one I have now so they can inspect it.  Hope I am able to get the new one working right.  They reiterated this is the correct hitch for my setup.

Yah zen2b1 I think for your rig 600/6000 will be just fine, you won't have nearly the tongue weight I have and so you won't be needing nearly as much spring bar tension as I do in my 179.  You may end up with the opposite problem, too little tongue weight, you'll want to be at least 10-11% under all loading conditions to reduce the possibility of sway.
