Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45341 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number C45341. This is the Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount for 2" hitches rated at 17,000 pounds. This ball mount is going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank is the portion that slides into the vehicle's hitch receiver and then your ball platform is going to provide a good mounting point for your hitch ball, which is sold separately. In choosing your hitch ball, you want to make sure that the shank of your hitch ball does not exceed the ball hole diameter, which for this mount is 1 1/4". This is a solid, one-piece forged steel construction. So, the only hollow points are where your hitch ball go and where the hitch pin and clip go, has a nice solid shank, no welds, just a nice solid one-piece heavy duty mount. It also has a corrosion resistant carbide black powder coat finish.

That's really going to help it stand up well against rust and corrosion. Both the drop and the rise positions are available to help ensure a more level tow. This is going to give us an overall length of right around 13". The measurement from the center of our hitch pin hole to the center of our ball hole is going to measure about 8 1/2". The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the mount is going to measure about 2 5/8". The way this mount would work is you'd take the mount and slide it into the receiver tube of your hitch.

Move inaudible 00:01:35 to line up our pin holes and install a hitch pin and clip, or a hitch pin and lock. These items are not included, but we do provide them at etrailer.com. So, you can go to the Mounts product page, under Related Items to view some similar products. This is designed to work with a 2" x 2" trailer hitch receiver. It's going to give us a max gross trailer weight of 17,00 pounds and a max tongue weight capacity of 2,550 pounds. With this installed in the drop position, it's going to give us a drop of 4".

That's measuring from the inside top edge of our receiver tube to the ball platform. If we move this mount over to the rise position, it's going to give us a rise of right at 3". That's measuring from the inside top edge of the receiver tube to the top of our ball platform. That's going to complete today's review of part number C45341. This is the Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount for 2" hitches with a 17,000 pound capacity. .

All products arrived in good condition. However the ball and the ball mount were not taped down inside shipping box. These being rather heavy smashed into the other boxes that held electronic stuff and glass mirror extensions. Lucky nothing was broke. Haven't installed yet, will let you know Wayne 213256

First of all, the products you find at etrailer are not your garden variety, home depot kind of fair. Much higher quality and grade/weight ratings. So to be able to get hard to find items and then by orderring at least 100$ worth of stuff also get it delivered free in 4 days, is awesome. The prices are incredible too. 377588

I just got this to go with my 2” Class V hitch on my new RAM. Seems like this was the best deal out there and at an amazing capacity of 17,000 lbs. Simple and tough construction. I think it will work great. I put the ball and hitch pin in. Ready to tow. It’s made in China, but isn’t everything these days? I’ve always used chromed ball mounts before, so we’ll see how the black powder coat finish holds up to Maine road salt. 716326

One solid piece of steel so not along can go wrong. Forming well done. No rough corners. Paint good. Dimensions correct, everything fits. It is of course heavy. Check hole size and flange thickness to get the right ball shank diameter and length and possibly a shank bushing. 691283

My 2018 F350 chassis cab has a Knapheide service body with a Buyers hitch installed by Knapheide. It is bolted and welded in place. Unfortunately, it only has a 2" receiver. To have them change to the 2.5" receiver hitch would cost me approximately $1200. The 20,000 lb. Curt replacement hitch would not work on this truck with this bed. The Buyer's hitch has a weight rating of 16,000 lbs. and 1600 lb. tongue weight. Fortunately, Curt has come through again for me with this ball mount. I bought two: one for my 2" ball and one for my 2-5/16" ball. They are great and the drop is very close to what would be perfect. Your towing set-up is only as strong as your weakest link and I now know the the ball mount is definitely not my weakest link. One note to Curt: When you put the stickers on your ball mounts, make sure they're clean. Before I even towed, the thick Curt sticker on both ball mounts started coming off. It feels like there is some kind of coating possibly on the mount and then the decals were applied. I tried pressing them both back on but I doubt they'll last the rest of the week. But as always, Curt has built me a great product for my needs. I'm a one man landscaper business but have spent quite a bit on Curt hitch products because they WORK. 629644

The receiver is solid steel and heavy so it can handle all the big loads.

The hitch went on with no problems at all. I cut the old broken hitch off and had new one on in 45 minutes by myself and back to work. I highly recommend etrailer.com to anyone looking for high quality correct fit accessories 448507

The tool provided to snake the front two bolts on the passenger side also worked extremely well. 215294

The hitch fit up very well to the existing frame of my 1993 F150 pick up truck. The only thing I would suggest to improve the package would be to provide a full sized template to locate the holes to be drilled in the frame. I ended up using the hitch itself as a template, but the 50# weight at 50+# made it a little difficult. Paul Holm 198500

  • High Capacity Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2019 RAM 1500
  • For your 2019 Ram 1500 we have the Draw Tite hitch part # 41913 which has very high towing capacities of up to 15,000 lb total trailer weight. Looks like you already have a 7-way connector next to your license plate which your factory brake controller is connected to as well. You really only would need a higher capacity ball mount and you'd be set. For that we have the part # C45340 which has a 2 inch drop or the part # C45341 which has a 4 inch drop.

  • For the 2002 Chevy Silverado 1500HD you would just select 1500 when looking at trailer hitches. The 1500HD still has the same frame as the 1500LD just different suspension/axle components and a few other odds and ends that would not affect the fit of a trailer hitch and make it essentially the 2500LD. So you can install Curt Class IV trailer hitch # C14332 on your truck! The recommended ball mount is # C45341 and it has a 3 inch rise or 4 inch drop. If the ball mount does not have the...

  • Towing Capacity of 2016 Ford F-150 with 5.0L Engine
  • I took a look at the online towing chart for your 2016 Ford F-150 and it lists a maximum trailer weight of 10,000 pounds for your F-150 model that is equipped with the 5.0L engine, 3:55 axle ratio, and 145 inch wheelbase. I do recommend verifying this information in your copy of the owner's manual or by checking with a local Ford dealer. I am not sure what your truck is already equipped with in terms of towing components so I will recommend all the parts you would need in order to tow...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 1993 Ford F-350 Cab and Chassis
  • For your 1993 Ford F-350 cab and chassis, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class IV - 2" # C14082 which is rated for 10,000 lbs and tongue weight of 1,000 lbs and goes to 12,000 lbs and 1,200 lbs tongue weight when paired with a weight distribution system. This is a larger capacity than some Class V hitches, and most likely will meet your needs. We don't currently have a manufacturer that makes a Class V hitch for your vehicle. With this hitch, I recommend...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 1991 GMC Sierra Stepside
  • For your 1991 GMC Sierra Stepside, I recommend taking a look at the Curt Class IV Receiver Hitch # C14081. This hitch is confirmed to fit your truck and will use existing holes in its frame for a no-drill installation. Just note that the spare tire will need to be lowered or removed temporarily when mounting the trailer hitch. This particular hitch features a 2 inch receiver opening and a towing weight capacity of 10,000 pounds. I highly recommend checking the owner's manual for your truck...

  • Does Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount C45341 Fit Tight in a Hitch Receiver
  • Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 3" Rise - 4" Drop - 17,000 lbs Item # C45341 is going to fit in the receiver the same as any ball mount. That is to say that the receiver opening is slightly larger than the ball mount shank so it can go in/out easily without binding up. There will be some movement but how much movement is acceptable is subjective to the individual. What is fine for one person might be too much for you. You can limit movement by using an anti-rattle...

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch C14081 Fit a 1997 GMC K2500 with 37 Inch Frame Spacing
  • Your 1997 GMC K2500 has the pickup frame spacing so Curt trailer hitch # C14081 will fit. The cab and chassis models (the ones that put service beds on) are more narrow and would not accept this hitch. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you. The recommended ball mount for this hitch is # C45341. If the ball mount does not have the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, use the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball...

  • Can Flash Ball Mount be Used for Trailer With GVWR of 15,000 lbs?
  • The Flash Ball Mount # DTBM5400 you purchased does have a tongue weight capacity of 2,000 lbs but its towing capacity is actually 14,000 lbs. The GVWR of your trailer is 15,000 lbs, which is the max capacity it can handle so with 10,000 lbs of tractor and gear, the weight of the trailer is going to determine if the Flash and its 14,000 lb capacity can accommodate your needs. If the trailer and gear is at or close to 14,000 lbs I recommend going with a higher capacity ball mount. In regards...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 that Does Not Require Drilling
  • Curt trailer hitch # 14070 only fits 1-ton cab and chassis models of the 2010 Dodge Ram. So that would be the 3500 cab and no bed. These are the trucks they use to make service vehicles. The highest capacity Curt hitch for a Ram 1500 without a factory trailer hitch is # C15572. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. There is no drilling required for installation but you will need to temporarily move the spare. After installation you will put the spare tire back. The...
