Video Transcript for Tow Ready 2 Inch Hitch Ball Review

Today, we're going to review part number 19258. This is a 2-inch hitch ball with a 3/4 inch shank from Tow Ready. This is our hitch ball right here. You obviously get the hitch ball, lock washer and a nut. You also get this label which actually tells you your torque specifications of whatever you're going to install it onto. One thing I want to point out is when you install a hitch ball, every now and then you'll see the tag left on there.

Don't do that. Aside from looking tacky, this actually can crush over time and whole hitch ball can loosen up from the lock nut, so always take this off. You always want to install this in a ball mount with a 3/4 inch hole. There are bushings that you can fit in there with that, but this actually still gives it room to move around and potentially loosen up. Try to use the same matching hole as the hitch ball. This ball is ready to have 3,500 pounds and this is the diameter, that's 2 inches.

Always use a decoupler that requires a 2 inch ball. The 2 and 8th inch, this will pop off, so don't use it with that, it's a style coupler. Obviously not much to it. Has a chrome finish. Let's put it in a typical installation. In this case, we're using a light duty hitch, a class 1.

Typically, we're going to mount in an up position like this, or a raised position. Simply put your lock washer nut into place, run the nut down, and then tighten it up. Let's put it into our hitch of our car and we'll tighten it down. I'll show you a little trick in tightening these down. We're actually going to put our ball mount in sideways.

That way, we can get leverage on our tool to go down to the ground. We'll go ahead and snug it up with a regular ratchet and a 1 and 8th inch socket. We'll take our slack, then we're going to use a pipe wrench on these flats right here on the ball. Put your wrench on the flats right here. That way you won't mess up the finish on the ball itself. You'll notice that we also have our pipe wrench on the ground. We'll put our torque wrench on and finish torquing the nut. We're constantly pushing down, we won't have to worry about the ball mount sliding out. Take your pipe wrench off. Then, we'll put our ball mount in correctly. Now our ball is ready for service to pull a trailer. That will finish it for our review of our hitch ball with 2-inch diameter and a short shank ready for 3,500 pounds tongue weight. Part number 19258, from Tow Ready. .

etrailer.com ranks among the best online retailers I have dealt with. I rate it 4 stars only because 4.5 wasn't an option. The half-point deduction is not a penalty. It merely allows room for improvement, which might be the ability to cross reference the year, make and model of my 2015 motorhome on a Ford F-53 26,000 GVWR chassis and only be shown parts that are available for and fit my vehicle. Not having that, I almost ordered the anti-sway bar specified for the Ford F-53 chassis, before realizing it was only for 22,000 and 24,000 GVWR chassis. 650236

The short shank of this ball is great for an ATV going to off road because it give more ground clearance, so it’s less likely to hang in stumps or rocks in the forest. I use it with my LogRite ATV Arch, with my wood splitter, and for transporting maple water to my sugar house to produce maple syrup. 41297

The hitch was well made and relatively easy to install. I installed it on a 2016 Golf Sportwagen LE. I can confirm that as others have stated that I did NOT need to trim the bumper fascia (as the instructions said I would need to). I separated the black, lower part of the fascia from the top part before reinstalling the main fascia. I was then able to snap the lower part on after fitting it around the hitch chain loops. A couple of other notes: the LE has the rear cross traffic alert. The sensors are bolted on each side of the bumper. I thought with the additional thickness of the sensors that the bolts might not be long enough but they fit fine. As has been mentioned in other reviews, the torx screws in the wheel wells have very little clearance. I highly recommend getting a torx racquet set. I bought one at a hardware store for about $20 (Kobalt 24-Piece Standard (SAE) and Metric Mechanic's Tool Set with Hard Case). This makes the removal of those screws straight-forward. 421514

  • Trailer Hitch Ball Recommendation for SylvanSport GO Trailer
    Sounds like you are referring to the hitch ball as a "drawbar" and by rondelle/eye you are referring to a pintle hook and loop style of coupler. There isn't a way to convert a smaller pole tongue trailer like what you have to this. I looked up the trailer and it needs a 2 inch ball like the part # 19258.

    All you will need is a mushing # 58184 that will allow you to use the 1 inch ball shank in the 1-1/4 inch diameter hole on your weight distribution head. If you instead decide to get a new ball you can use # 19286.

    When you install a hitch like the Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 24847, on a 2011 Toyota Prius it does not mean that your vehicle can now tow 2,000 lbs. That is just the maximum towing weight capacity for that hitch. If the vehicle that the hitch it goes on has a lower towing weight capacity, then the lowest weight capacity is what is used as the maximum towing weight capacity for your towing setup.

  • Is There a Ball Larger Than 2 Inch Diameter For Class II Trailer Hitch
    The largest ball they make for Class II hitch is 2 inch. There are not any bigger sizes because the Class II hitch would not be able to handle the weight even if the ball is rated to handle more weight. There are bigger ball sizes larger than 2 inch available for higher class hitches because those hitches can handle more weight, and a higher rated ball is used in some applications.

The 1-7/8 inch balls come with various shank diameters with 1 inch like part # 19260 or 3/4 inch like part # 19256 being the most popular.

There simply isn't any type of load assist that is going to work with your factory rack, and there's no way to carry 98 lbs of SUP/Kayak on a rack that has a 100 lb capacity - any carrier is going to overextend the rack.

    There are no weight distribution systems that are designed to work with a 1-1/4 inch hitch like what you have on your 2002 Ford Escape, but I do have a solution for you. You will need to replace your hitch with a 2 inch hitch like the Draw Tite Hitch part # 75118. With this hitch you can use a WD system. You can not use a WD system with a 1-1/4 inch to 2 inch hitch adapter either. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of...

The reducer would install into the hitch and be secured with a hitch pin like # PC3. Then, the bike rack is installed into the reducer.

    You are correct, there are less accessories available for Class I hitches than there are for Class II hitches. If you have already seen some Class II accessories you like, I would go ahead and purchase the Class II hitch for your 2005 Camry. You will still be limited to the towing and tongue weight capacities of the Camry since they are lower than the typical 350/3500 pound rating of a Class II. In fact, all of the aftermarket hitches we have available for your 2005 Camry are Class...

    I attached an FAQ article to the right on how to pick out the correct rise/drop ball mount for a towing setup so that a trailer can be towed level. But based on the two dimensions you gave me you will need a ball mount with a 4 inch rise. For that you would want the part # 3594. As long as your trailer coupler takes a 2 inch ball the # 19258 would work well with the # 3594 so that your trailer can be towed level.
