Considering the weight of the trailer you will be pulling, not really. But a couple of things to consider are, a well balanced trailer pulls much better without swaying and jumping around, but with a full size pickup as long as you keep the tongue at the ball an inch or so high it should pull pretty good.
Another thing to consider is if you build it too heavy on the tongue weight and you decide to sell it you could put off some prospective buyers that might not have a full size truck to tow with. Just food for thought.
BTW - It's not a stupid question.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to
keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves
against tyranny in government.
