I found it a little harsh on the highest setting. Went to the middle bolt and was happy.

I might have to give it a try. I got the truck in tonight, but spent all the extra time getting the salt and **** washed off.

I have mine on stiffest setting and it doesn't seem to be too much. You should be able to change the setting with the truck on the ground.

I do crank my Blue Ox tight to link 11 (they recommend starting at link 9). I do jack it up pretty high to get the bars on/off which I dislike but it drives great so...
(On link 9 I had some sway and porpoising, On link 10 no sway but still some porpoising)

That said, my trailer also has what I think are Load C tires(max 65 psi) and oversized axles(think they are 4400 lbs rated).
I still have the stock Dynapro 20" on my F150(for now) which I put the rears to about 50psi when towing.

When I was researching hitches I noticed people had a wide variety of experience with the Blue Ox and other hitches. IMO I think a lot of it has to do with different trailers and how they are loaded. My friend has towed my trailer with his F350 with no WDH and says it feels very good compared to other trailers.(He runs an RV rental business).
trailer sway control is not the same thing as the anti-sway bar we have been discussing but it's good to hear your results.
