Fits perfect. Nice to not have to use the 2" insert. No rattle and super stout. Hauled tractor and backhoe, no problem. Definitely would recommend. 599768

WORK PERFECT! rust all over hitch ball, next, ill replace it for a chromed one

The products were as expected. The packaging was poor. The heavy, forged steel, Hitch ball mount was thrown into the same box as the wiring harness. There was no attempt to secure or pad the items so the ball mount wouldn't hammer away at the wiring harness everytime the package was turned over. It shows a lack of respect for the hard earned dollars that were spent on the parts...no appreciation for the business. 589791

I like etrailer for all my towing needs over the years. The fact you wait a year to ask for a review speaks volumes. 2018 Ram truck has a 2.5" receiver! The square "bushing" set-up supplied with the vehicle did not seem very sound, although it probably is. Anyway the forged 2.5" stinger has been fine-no worries for me! Bomb-proof!! 603086

Great product! etrailer kept me up informed about the progress of the order from the time that I placed the order until the time that I received the hitch 504538

This item came right on time and was exactly what I needed. The product quality is first rate and it was exactly as advertised in the product description. The assembly was very easy and left me with full confidence about the compatibility of these components. 461703

Seems to fit the receiver on my truck well. Has a nice coating of paint. It is very heavy due to it being solid steel. Should outlast my truck. 658979

The products I received are exactly as represented on the website. They appear to be of the high quality that I have come to expect from e-trailer. I have ordered numerous things from them over the years and these were shipped promptly and received in a short period of time as is always the case when I order from e-trailer. 599196

Just what we needed for our 2019 F-250's. With the C45458 ball installed, it gave is a final ball height of 20-1/2" to the top of the ball, just what I was shooting for, and perfect for both of our trailers. 567461

Hitch was exactly what I needed but the service from Etrailer is outstanding. Not only received materials on time but 2 days early because someone in shipping took the time to upgrade shipping at no extra expense. I am a customer for life. Jeff S. 562711

by:

I use to tow a 1999 Sea Ray 330 Sundancer with my 2011 Ford F350. Needed something that would handle the weight and this definitely does that. Good quality and seems very strong. Perfect drop to make the trailer sit level when connected to the truck. The only negative I would say about it is that it fits fairly loose in the receiver. Also, the hitch pin hole in the mount is a little oversize so there is some back and forth when stopping and taking off. 520410

Solid one piece design ! Heavy duty ! I am using it to haul my 14,000 g.v.w. trailer for cars trucks and my bobcat 334 Excavator.. 518920

Extra heavy and good quality. Only problem I had was I didn’t see in the info that the ball hole was 1 1/2” instead of 3/4”. So had to order a new ball. 518420

by:

Needed a heavy duty ball mount and didn't want to deal with an adjustable mount. Extremely impressed with the quality of the 4" drop Curt mount. Solid from ball to mount point, not the hollow mounts made by other companies. With a 20k pound rating it will definitely exceed the weight I plan to tow. 479400

by:

It is strong and works great. I pull a trailer loaded in excess of 12,000 lbs. The only thing is it fits a little to lose in the receiver. When pulling empty trailer it rattles. 457073



- C45458
by:

The hitch choice didn't work for my 2016 Ram 2500. The trailers that I needed to tow had a fixed trailer jack. If I lowered my tailgate, due to it's big lip design, it would hit the jack. I resorted to a hitch that was longer and was adjustable. 454721

I ordered a Class V ball and ball mount with pins. This is for the 2.5 inch heavy duty receiver. I needed a set-up for pulling an emergency services boat that weighs over 18,000 lbs. I was able to get a set-up rated at 20,000 lbs, in stock. Shipping was fast and quality looks good. 412974



- C45458
by:

This is a solid insert that has worked well and meets the load requirement. The boat/trailer combo weighs 18,000 lbs. and this is a critical link in making it a safe tow. This is the second one I have bought, different offsets, and would recommend it. 375675

It never ceases to amaze me that everyone claims great customer service, but few provide it. I like to think I 'discovered' etrailer as a true customer service gem, so as I shared my 'find' with my horse towing friends, they told me they already knew and that George is the trailer king. My only concern now is why my friends didn't tell me sooner. Friends tell friends about etrailer, right? I count you folks among the very small number of outfits that I can count on to deliver each and every time. thank you! thank you! thank you! Wilbur's Friend 347931

It's built strong but it is noisy if left in the receiver while driving around with no load on it. It's a little too lose for the receiver. It's still a good deal though. 297786

Ask the Experts about this Curt Ball Mounts

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Recommended Pintle Hitch and Lunette Ring for 2015 Ford F-750 with 23,800 lb Trailer
  • For your 2015 Ford F750 boom truck, there is not a ball mount rated for that weight capacity. The largest capacity is 20K for a 2-1/2 inch hitch like # C45458 or 21K for a 3 inch hitch receiver like # C45430. We don't have a trailer hitch receiver rated that high either. It appears the truck does have the towing capacity to handle that trailer, but you will need to use a direct mount like the Curt Pintle Hook - Bolt On - 30,000 lbs # C48215. A pintle hook and lunette ring combination...

  • Is there a Ball Mount Larger than a Class V 2-1/2 Inch
  • If your hitch receiver opening is larger than 2-1/2 inches then the next step up is a 3 inch if you are talking about physical size and not capacity. We have 1 ball mount for 3 inch hitch receiver openings; # RP38180. It has a 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch ball. This is not a common size though so I do recommend verifying the size of the receiver opening on the hitch. I have also included a link to our ball mount main page. If you mean capacity then the highest capacity 2-1/2 inch ball mount...

  • Recommended Ball Mount with 4" Drop for a 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • The Roadmaster High-Low Adapter part # RM-058-4 is designed for flat towing applications and is not rated for the tongue weight associated with straight pull towing. If you need a ball mount with a 4" drop then I recommending using the Curt Forged Ball Mount part # C45458. As long as you have a 2-1/2" trailer hitch receiver on your 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 then this ball mount will work well for you. If you have a standard 2" trailer hitch receiver then you will want to use the Curt...

  • How Long Should Hitch Ball Shank Be to Fit Curt Forged Ball Mount # C45458
  • The 2-1/2 inch shank length on B&W ball # BWHB94004 might be just a bit too short for ball mount # C45458. The recommended ball, # C40008, has a shank length of 2-3/4 inches. Basically the shank has to be long enough for the nut to thread all the way on with about 3 or more threads sticking out past the bottom of the nut.

  • Determining Proper Trailer Ball Height
  • In order to determine what rise/drop ball mount you need, you'll need to take some measurements. Measure the distance from the inside top of the receiver opening to the ground. Then with a level trailer, measure the distance from the underside of the coupler to the ground. The difference between these two measurements will be the rise/drop you'll need. If the hitch is higher than the coupler, you'll need a drop. If the coupler is taller than the hitch, you'll need a ball mount with a rise....

  • Are Solid Shank Ball Mounts Better Than Those with a Hollow Shank
  • You can absolutely trust the manufacturer ratings for the ball mounts we have available, regardless of whether or not they feature a solid or hollow shank. Ball mounts and other towing products are typically tested well beyond their actual listed capacities, so you can be sure they can handle the specificied maximums without issue. You will just need to make sure that the various other components of your towing system can also support the weights you are looking to pull, such as the trailer...

  • Ball Mount for 2-1/2 inch Hitch that Has 4 inches of Drop
  • We do have the Curt fixed ball mount part # C45458 which fits a 2-1/2 inch hitch and has a 4 inch drop like you said you needed. I attached a review video for this ball mount for you to check out as well.

  • Will Hitch Balls # 19286 and # A-90 Fit the Curt Forged Ball Mount # C45458
  • Yes, both of the hitch balls ( # 19286 and # A-90) would have long enough shanks to fit the Curt Forged Ball Mount # C45458. They also have the correct shank diameter of 1-1/4 inch.
