It may be overkill, but it gets my Thule bike rack at a workable level when I am not towing my small toy hauler trailer. The bike rack's ramp is now at a level where the its incline works for my heavy electric bike. I was having to lift it into place at the truck's hitch receiver's height.

Excellent well made and finished drop receiver. Perfect packaging. A perfect solution to lower my ebike rack for easier loading of the heavy ebike. Thanks for the great product.

Has the adaptability I was looking for. Use it for utility trailer. Also use for garbage transport down long driveway by taking advantage of vehicle air ride suspension system.

No BS on this one. I got a confirmation email the day I ordered it that it shipped. For such a heavy item it showed up in only a couple days! Faster than Amazon. Adjustable receiver showed up with out a scratch. I only paid for basic shipping too! I’m impressed.

Great website navigation, information, pricing and tech support when needed. If I could ask for one thing it would be to have a veterans discount.

Super heavy-duty. I am using this "upside-down" on the back of a Tacoma to get a heavy, receiver-hitch mountain bike rack up higher for when we are off road. It gets the bikes and rack up to avoid damage that may come from a gully crossing, etc. Probaly overkill since I'm not towing, but super rugged!



- PH54FR
by:

No complaints. I got this hitch after I lifted my truck so I could level tow my trailers. It works as described and the welds look nice.

by:

Worked out perfectly. Our truck is very high and we need a hitch to drop it down and this worked out perfectly.

WOW this hitch is built right just what I needed the fedex truck will be coming to my house a lot more from etrailer

I use this to lift the hitch hauler on our 2022 Odyssey!



- PH54FR
by:

It just arrived. I did a successful fit check. It is well constructed and believe it will work well. This adapter provides flexibility to properly level different loads without needing customized hitch adapters for each one. Unlike other brands, this adapter mounts closer to the rear of the vehicle. Ordering from the company website was easy and shipping was free.

by:

The hitch doesn’t seem to drop as far as it’s Advertised. It says 11 inches, and it doesn’t drop that far. I guess I should’ve ordered a 13 inch drop. Other than that very nice.



- PH54FR
by:

Good quality and customer rep went above and beyond catching there was model in already than waiting for my original one. They doubled check to make sure it would work on my suburban. It’s hard to fine a crew that went above and beyond.

by:

extremely fast delivery. Item looks great and strong. I haven't tested yet but have purchased it because I have a lifted truck and we just purchased Rad Power Bikes which are extremely heavy to lift into the truck. I purchased a bike carrier rack and at most, the weight on the hitch will be 350lbs. Not a big deal but this hitch drop will allow the carrier to sit lower and easily able to load the bikes. Thanks!

Ask the Experts about this Patriot Hitches Drop Hitch

  • Tongue Weight Capacity of Patriot Hitch Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver
    The Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver Adapter - 2" Hitches - 11" Rise/Drop - 7,000 lbs # PH54FR is rated for a tongue weight of 700 lbs max. The Replacement 2" Receiver for Curt Multi-Ball Adjustable Ball Mount # C45802 will work with the Replacement Shank for Curt Adjustable Ball Mount # C45059. You also can take a look at the Gen-Y hitch shanks like # 325-GH-624 for the stackable receivers which are made strong and will work well. This can work as a ball mount, but also can be used...

  • Could Patriot Hitches Adjustable Drop Hitch be Used as High Low Adapter When Flat Towing
    To lower your hitch height when flat towing your Honda Fit , I recommend using the Roadmaster High-Low Adapter - 2" Hitches - 10-1/4" Rise/Drop - 10K GTW, 400 lbs TW # RM-048-10, which will give you the closest rise/drop to what you need. The Patriot adjustable hitch opening part # PH54FR is not designed to be used for flat-towing.

  • Recommended Adjustable Receiver for Flat-Towing With At Least 6 Drop
    The Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount part # 325-GH-304 is my recommendation on an adjustable receiver used for flat-towing. It will provide up to a 7-1/2" rise or drop depending on configuration.

  • What is Difference Between Patriot Hitches Adjustable Ball Mounts PH54FR and PH67SR
    The difference is the color of the pin and clips of the two kits. The Patriot Adjustable Hitch Adapter part # PH67SR has black pin and clips whereas the # PH54FR has red ones.

  • Cargo Carrier With Raised Shank To Prevent Exhaust From Melting Items Being Hauled.
    I recommend an adjustable receiver adapter like the Patriot Hitches Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver Adapter - 2" Hitches - 11" Rise/Drop - 7K Item # PH54FR. You can use your existing carrier and the mount allows you to raise it up to 11 inches higher. It has a 700lb tongue weight capacity. One thing to keep in mind is using this is going to drop the tongue weight capacity of the hitch on your vehicle so you just want to make sure your load does not exceed that amount. The only Cargo carrier...

  • Is There a Maximum Weight Capacity to Patriot Hitches Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver Adapter
    There is not a maximum capacity for the Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver Adapter # PH54FR. It has a 7,000 lb towing capacity and 700 lb tongue weight capacity no matter what. We have verified this with Patriot Hitches.

  • Can Patriot Hitch Adjustable Drop Adapter be Used with LockNroll Coupler
    You can use the Patriot Hitch Adjustable Drop Adapter part # PH54FR with your Lock N Roll setup to easily change the rise/drop of the ball mount. You should keep in mind that when using a hitch adapter like this you cut the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent due to the additional leverage and movement created.

  • Where are Patriot Hitch Adjustable Drop Hitches like PH54FR Manufactured
    The Patriot Hitch adjustable drop hitches like the # PH54FR you're asking about are proudly made in the USA, in Ohio. I've linked to a product demonstration video featuring the # PH54FR drop hitch.

  • How Much Clearance From Hitch Pin Hole on Patriot Hitches Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver.
    You will want to measure the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper. The Patriot Hitches Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver Adapter # PH54FR has 3-1/2" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the angled brace for the shank, so you're going to need at least that distance from your bumper to the hitch pin hole. Since this doesn't come with any security features, I do recommend adding a hitch lock like the InfiniteRule Hitch Lock for 2" Hitches - 2-5/8" Span...

  • Why Isn't Patriot Hitches PH54FR Drop Hitch Adapter Rated for Flat Towing
    The reason is pretty simple. The Blue Ox # BX88132 is specifically designed for flat towing and has been rigorously tested for that purpose. The Patriot Hitch # PH54FR adjustable drop receiver adapter has NOT been tested for flat towing a vehicle, therefore Patriot Hitch can't recommend using the product for that purpose as they don't know how their product would preform in that application. I've liked to product videos for both items mentioned above.

  • Gaining Ground Clearance With Two Motorcycle Carrier
    I have a single motorcycle carrier for my KX450. Between my bike and the carrier their dead weight is about 315lbs, but my tongue weight is more than that since the bike sits farther out from the hitch receiver. With bumps and hills on the road that tongue weight is constantly changing and with your double motorcycle carrier the tongue weight is going to be much more since it sits further out from the hitch. That being said, the Patriot Hitches Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver # PH54FR...

  • Does Patriot Hitches Adjustable Drop Hitch Have Different Capacities Based on Rise or Drop
    We have verified with Patriot Hitches that there are not different towing capacities and tongue weights based on the rise or drop of the Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver Adapter # PH54FR. No matter which rise or drop position the hitch is, it has a maximum 7,000 lb towing capacity and 700 lb tongue weight capacity. The Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver Adapter # PH54FR has up to an 11" rise or drop and a 2" receiver.

  • Bike Rack With Tilt Feature For A Motorhome With Rear Slide Room
    For your 25ft class c motor home I recommend the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 1-1/4"/2" Hitches - Frame Mount Item # HR1000Z. This rack has the tilt away feature. The only thing I would be concerned about is the height of the handlebars in the tilt position if you are wanting to keep the bikes on the rack with the slide room out. To provide more clearance I recommend the Patriot Hitches Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver Adapter - 2" Hitches - 11" Rise/Drop - 7K Item...

  • What Do You Recommend for Adding Rise to Have a Higher Ground Clearance for a Cargo Carrier?
    I have a solution for you. When it comes to hitch adapters that provide rise to your trailer hitch for your cargo carrier, we only carry adapters that add rise for 2-inch hitch receivers. However, with that being said, we do carry adapters that enable you to carry 2-inch accessories on a 1-1/4 inch receiver that add rise. For that route, I recommend the Brophy Hitch Adapter 1-1/4" to 2" # HT5R. In addition to allowing you to use 2-inch accessories on your 1-1/4 inch hitch, the Brophy adapter...

  • Height of Thule Transporter Combi Hitch Mounted Enclosed Cargo Carrier
    The Thule Transporter Combi Hitch Mounted Enclosed Cargo Carrier, # TH665C will be close to 31" high from the center of the hitch pin when in the upright and locked position. We do not have this item installed on a vehicle that allows me to exactly measure the tilted position, though approximately 4"-6" lower. Use of a Drop/Rise hitch such as the Patriot Hitches Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver Adapter, # PH54FR can provide options to the elevation of a cargo carrier if necessary.

  • Recommended Adjustable Drop Receiver That Can Be Used With Friction Sway Control
    I have another option for you, but while the Patriot Hitches Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver Adapter # PH54FR would allow you to install your current ball mount with provisions for two friction sway control, it has not be tested for this at this time (1/29/2021) so I would not recommend using it in this manner at this time. For an option that is rated for use with friction sway control, I recommend the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 7-1/2" Drop/Rise - 10K...

  • Will This Patriot Hitches Adjustable Drop Adapter Work With The Etrailer Motorcycle Carrier
    Yes, it would be safe to use the Patriot Hitches Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver Adapter - 2" Hitches - 11" Rise/Drop - 7K, part # PH54FR, with the etrailer Motorcycle Carrier w/ Ramp for 2" Hitch - 76" Long - Steel - 500 lbs, part # e98873. You should not need to add an anti-rattle devices, it has a built in anti-rattle device. You also have an anti-rattle hitch bolt in your motorcycle carrier.
