What Aswaff said. Just because your truck can lug it around and the hitch says you can, you probably shouldn't. The half ton frame is thinner than a one ton, your trans will go out before you know it and you will hit LEGAL limits pretty quick with a half ton title.
Weight distribution on a good trailer will be key as well as a GOOD trailer brake controller.
