New 5th Wheel Hitch using factory pucks

My new 5th wheel hitch showed up Friday and I installed it today into the factory pucks. The hitch is a Curt Q20 with the leg kit to match up to the factory gooseneck/5th wheel prep. It took me about 30 minutes to assemble the hitch, slipped it into the pucks and tapped the levers closed with a dead blow hammer, done. Very nice fit, but a bit heavy. Best deal I could find on the hitch was Amazon, it was even cheaper than my wholesaler that I buy truck accessories from, plus the shipping was free. It looks like the hitch is several inches forward of the center line of the axle, so some weight should be transferred to the front axle when the 5er is hooked up.
