Today on our 2012 Toyota Highlander were gonna take a quick look at the Convert-A-Ball cushioned ball mount part number AMSC2. First thing were going to do is take a measurement from the ground to the inside top edge of our receiver tube. This measurement is known as the hitch height. The measurement may vary a bit depending on tires or after market modifications to the vehicle so make sure to measure your own vehicle. Our hitch measures 14-3/4 inches high. Well first take our ball mount and mount it in the drop position using a pin and clip.
Because the drawbar provides a 2 inch drop our height measurement in the drop position on the ball platform surface is 12-3/4 inches. So, if your trailer couple measures 12-3/4 inches off the ground this is the perfect ball mount for your application. Now, well flip the ball mount over in the rise position. In the rise position we get up to 15-1/2 inches which is 3/4 inch rise with our ball mount. Again, if your trailer measures from the bottom of the coupler to the ground 15-1/2 inches this would be a good ball mount to use.
And thats it for our test fit of the Convert-A-Ball cushioned ball mount for 2 inch hitches part number AMSC2 on our 2012 Toyota Highlander.

Now, this ball mount provides a 2-3/4 inch rise or a 4 inch drop. First, well measure the hitch height of our Highlander, thats from the ground to the inside top edge of our receiver tube. Our example measures 14-3/4 inches tall. Now, keep in mind this measurement will vary depending on the different models, tire sizes, or hitches available for these vehicles. With a 14-3/4 inch hitch height, we probably wont want to use this ball mount in the drop position as it would set us down about 10 inches from the ground.
