Tow hitch issue - Need help urgently!!!

Hello,

I have '06 WK Laredo 3.7. I want to install tow hitch and as I know I need class II hitch. On official page there is class II hitch receiver with 1 1/4 opening but there is no tow hitch ball adapter for 1 1/4" opening. For class III there is receiver with 2" opening and there is adapter for that opening.
I was thinking to buy class III since there is no big difference in price but I have one doubt:
For class II they say that tow weight is 3500 lbs / 350 lbs weight on vehicle and for class III they say tow weight is 5000 lbs /500 lbs with weight distribution but without weight distribution tow weight is only 2000 lbs /350 lbs.
Both hitch's look the same and they install on same bolts is it possible that class II can pull more than class III without weight distribution, same thing is in description on all pages?
Any idea what to do???

Thank you.

Class III should be 5000# and 7500# with weight distribution.

Thank you for your opinion.
I have bought CLASS III and on ball mount adapter it says 2000 LBS max, is it possible to tow 3500 LBS with class III without weight distribution center (I know that with CLASS II is possible)??? I don't believe that this can't be done, it would be stupid. Any Ideas???
