Video Transcript for Review of Blue Ox Hitch Adapters - High-Low Adapter - BLU28XR

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at this Blue Ox Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver Adapter for two inch hitches, has a 10,000 pound gross towing weight capacity. Now, this is a drop hitch receiver adapter that'll provide a drop or a rise to match the height of your application. Basically, the shank portion of the mount here will slide into your two inch hitch receiver, and then up front, you have this receiver adapter that'll accept a ball mount, a pintle hook or other hitch mounted accessories. Now, to adjust this up or down, you can see there's adjustment holes on the mount, those are one inch of apart center to center. And what's nice is that adjustable height will let you tow trailers of different heights with the same vehicle, also can be used to level your tow bar when you're flat towing.

Basically, just slide this receiver platform up or down the shank, and then secure it in place with the pins and the clips. It does include the two 5/8 inch diameter pins with the clips, and if you use it in the maximum drop position, which it is in right now, it's gonna get you an eight inch drop. If you install this in your hit receiver, flip it over, it'll get you a maximum rise of eight inches. And just to show you what we're talking about, to change the height, just pull out your clip here on this pin, pull out your clip on the bottom pin, and once you get both clips out, just slide the pins out, and then once they're slid out, you can actually slide this, as you can see, up or down to whatever position you need. If you need to remove it, you can just slide it off the very bottom, that'll remove it from the mount.

But basically, you can see here, just slide it wherever you need, and then we're just gonna put it back in to the lower position, the lowest position, so let's put our pins back through, take our clips, go ahead and install those, and that'll secure it in place. Also, what's nice, I wanna swing this around with my fingers pointing, they have a built-in set screw on this receiver adapter, so when you get it to whatever position you need, you can tighten that down with an Allen wrench and that'll help reduce noise and vibration between this adapter and the mount. This is a nice heavy-duty steel construction, it is ideal for towing heavy loads. You can see the finish on all these parts are a corrosion resistant black powder coat finish. As I mentioned, it does include this 5/8 inch pin and clip for securing the mount to the receiver.

We went over the two 5/8 inch diameter pins with the lynch clips to secure the drop receiver to the mount. Now, it does not include a pin and clip for this drop receiver, it does require a 5/8 inch diameter pin and clip for that, but you would have to supply that yourself, it is not included. This part as made in the USA. Few specs again, this goes into a two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver opening, the receiver size up front is also a two inch by two inch size, does have a maximum gross towing weight capacity of 10,000 pounds, tongue weight capacity of 1,000 pounds, and the last thing I wanna do is just give you some measurements on this. So we're gonna do the height, which will be measured from the bottom here to the very top, the tallest position.

So we'll go ahead and put our tape measure on that, so heightwise, you're gonna be right at 11 1/2 inches tall. Now, the length, if we measured from the back to just the front of the mount, that you can see is gonna be right at 12 3/4 inches, and then if you wanna add the receiver adapter, that's gonna add an extra 6 1/2 inches for that extension. And then the width on it at the widest point, it's gonna be right down here where the pins are at the base. If we measure that including the pins, it's right at four inches wide. But that should do it for the review on the Blue Ox Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver Adapter for two inch hitches with a 10,000 pound gross towing weight capacity..

Screw hole wasn’t treaded properly or was painted over. Steve Denker in the Blue Ox customer service department wishes me luck in borrowing a tap and fixing their manufacturing issue myself. Not what I expect from blue ox. Was going to return and hope they got the next one right, but not the right thing to do for the supply chain or the environment, so I’ll buy a tap and get it done.

Just wish it could be a couple inches taller but great fit and looks solid/strong. Once I finish with the supplemental brakes and lights wiring, this should serve me well for many years to come

Ask the Experts about this Blue Ox Hitch Adapters

  • Can the Blue Ox Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver Adapter Be Used as a Weight Distribution Shank?
    I have a solution for you but the Blue Ox Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver Adapter item # BLU28XR you referenced is an adjustable drop hitch that can not be used with a weight distribution system. Instead you will want to use the Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank 7" item # C17123. This shank has 1-1/4" bolt hole spacing and is compatible with almost all weight distribution systems. It has a 8-1/4" on round bar systems and a 6-1/4" drop on trunion bar systems. The shank has a weight capacity...

  • Recommended Hitch Extender For Cargo Carrier On a Class A Motorhome
    The 7" Hitch Extender # HE06 can be used with the 23x59 Stromberg Carlson Cargo Carrier # CC-100 on your 2022 Tiffin Open Road Allegro class A motorhome. You will need to consider the weight capacity you are looking to carry with your cargo carrier to ensure that it is safe. The Extender # HE06 will reduce your receiver tongue weight capacity by 50% or up to 350lbs(whichever is less). With the carrier weight at 39lbs you will only be able to carry a maximum of 311lbs at most with this carrier...

  • Can A Second Receiver Tube Be Added to the Blue Ox Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver Adapter
    I don't have a way to add a second receiver to the Blue Ox Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver Adapter part # BLU28XR but if you like the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers part # 325-GH-214 option, there's another more cost effective version of this. It's the Gen-Y Rebel Ball Mount part # GY72FR which has the same offset stacked receiver design so you can place something in the upper receiver and tow with the bottom.
