To Whom it May Concern: I highly recommend etrailer.com com. I ordered a trailer hitch and bike rack by phone. The sales agent was professional, competent, helpful and friendly. The prices of the products are fair and the delivery was timely and arrived in good condition. It is rare to have a purchase experience of the level of high quality that I experienced with etrailer.com. I am highly recommending this company to others, based on my first experience with them, and I would not hesitate to purchase from them again. 4 stars out of 4. Thank you.

Purchased a can of BP Blaster penetrating spray the day after I ordered the parts. I sprayed the weld nuts several times while waiting for the parts to arrive and it seemed to help loosen them up. My order arrived on time and I installed the hitch the next morning. I installed the hitch by myself ( I'm 67 years old), and while I admit that an extra set of hands would have been very helpful, the install was easier than I anticipated. I had all the parts I needed, the instructions were easy to follow and the online video was very helpful. I purchased the hitch in order to tow a trailer with a ton of wood pellets, instead of getting 1/2 a ton at a time (the capacity of my truck). Hopefully these products will solve my problem, only time will tell. 392665

Thank you for such prompt service. I put this on my Polaris 570 mid size Ranger. The problem was a normal hitch was under the bed and a 2 inch rise was a bit too low for a level trailer. This fixed the problem moving the ball out further and higher. Much easier to hook up. I would recommend your company to others. 483723

Ask the Experts about this Tow Ready Hitch Ball

  • Selecting Fixed vs. Adjustable Ball Mount for Towing Teardrop Trailer
    Almost any vehicle will have some degree of rear sag or squat when a trailer is hitched to it. This effect from trailer tongue weight is easy to compensate for by using a ball mount that adds about an inch of height. In other words, before you couple the trailer to the hitch ball it is fine for the ball to be an inch or so higher than the coupler. Once joined the resulting height of the ball/coupler will be right where it ought to be, with the trailer frame level to the ground. You can...

  • How Tall is 2 Inch Diameter Hitch Ball Part # 19247
    The ball measures 2-3/4 inches from the ball mount surface to the top of the ball. I am glad to see that you are making sure you get the proper ball mount for your tow set up. The rule of thumb is to be no more than 2 inches over or under. The easiest way to calculate this is to measure from the ground to the top of the inside of the receiver just like you did, then measure from the ground to the bottom edge of the coupler where it would be about flush with the ball mount. I would...

  • Recommended Tightening Torque for Hitch Mounting Bolts
    The Tow Ready 2 Inch Hitch Ball, part # 63845, you have referenced needs to be torqued to 250 foot pounds. It is recommended to frequently check that the ball is tightened to these specifications. If you are meaning the mounting bolts that are used to attach a hitch to a vehicle, it would depend on the hitch part number and the year make and model of vehicle the hitch is going on. If you can give me that information I can help you determine the torque specifications for your specific...

  • Determining Correct Hitch Ball Size for 2013 Coachmen Clipper Camper
    Based on the 3,518 pound GVWR I found for your 2013 Coachmen Clipper, the coupler is likely compatible with a 2 inch hitch ball like the Tow Ready # 63845. This 2 inch diameter ball features a 1 inch diameter shank. With that being said, I highly recommend trying to confirm the ball size from the seller, as it is possible that it couples to a different size. The type of ball it is compatible with should be stamped somewhere on the trailer itself, typically right on the coupler, or possibly...

  • How to Select Correct Ball Mount to Keep Pop-Up Camper Trailer Level When Hitched
    When selecting a ball mount and 2-inch hitch ball for towing your pop-up camper you will want to choose a ball mount that allows the hitched trailer to remain level. The article I linked for you shows how to choose the right 2-inch ball mount with the correct rise or drop to keep your trailer level. Level trailers tow much better. I linked our page for 2-inch ball mounts, some of which include the hitch ball, such as Curt # C45036 which offers 2-inches of drop. If you choose a separate...

  • Should Hitch Ball Angle Be Adjusted Up and Down or Angled to the Rear Using Weight Distribution
    The hitch ball angle adjustment on weight distribution systems is designed to provide more or less distribution of the tongue weight on your trailer hitch to the trailer and vehicle axles. If you adjust the ball angle farther away from the towing vehicle, you will angle the weight distribution spring bars down toward the ground and that will distribute more weight. Angling the ball forward towards the towing vehicle puts less angle on the spring bars and therefore less weight is distributed. We...

  • Does a Trailer have to be towed Level or Can it be Off Up or Down
    If the trailer is less than 1 inch off of being perfectly level either up or down then it will be perfectly fine. Having it slightly higher would be better because presumably the tongue weight of the trailer will pull it down a little. You could also look into different ball mounts with different rise or drop specs. I have included a link to our ball mount main page for you. Tongue weight on a trailer is usually 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. But it can be less on a boat...

  • What Hitch Ball Size Fits a 1978 Airstream 31 Excella?
    I can't find anything online to help with the coupler size of your 1978 Airstream 31 Excella, but based on the gross vehicle weight rating, you will most likely need a 2 inch hitch ball like # 63845. If you don't already have a ball mount, I recommend the etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit for 2" Hitches - 7,500 lbs # 989900. This will give you the 2 inch ball along with two different ball mount options to give you up to a 2-3/4 inch rise or a 4 inch drop. This kit also gives you the pin...

  • How To Determine What Size Ball I Need For A Trailer Coupler That Does Not Have Size Listed
    I looked up the Shelby 5133 coupler and it said it uses a 2 inch hitch ball. You also need to get the right ball shank diameter and ball shank length. The ball mount determines the diameter and length. If you measure the hole size diameter in your ball mount, that gives you the ball shank diameter, there is a 3/4 inch, 1 inch and 1-1/4 inches diameter available. You need to measure the thickness of the ball mount to determine the ball shank length. Short length is less than 2 inches....

  • Can a Trailer Ball Be Mounted Directly To The Bumper of a 1999 Dodge Dakota
    Some vehicles are designed with a hole in the bumper for attaching a ball for towing. You need to check your owners manual or with your dealer for the towing capacity of your Dakota. You should also check with the Dealer to see if the bumper on your Dakota is rated for towing. I have attached an FAQ article that has tips on how to tow a trailer. You will need to measure the hole in the bumper to make certain you have the correct diameter shank on the ball you wish to attach. If you have...

  • How to Choose the Correct Replacement Hitch Ball
    In order to choose the correct replacement hitch ball you would need to measure the diameter of the shank, length of the shank, and diameter of the ball. The diameter of the ball should be stamped into the head but the other two will more than likely need to be physically measured. For example, the part # 63845 has a 2-1/8" long x 1" diameter shank with a 2" ball. Once you find out the above info you can then use our selection which I have attached for you to find the correct one for...

  • Hitch Ball Recommendation for 2007 Ford Ranger with Factory Bumper
    I cannot make a accurate recommendation without more information. The thickness of the bumper at the hitch ball hole and the diameter of the hole in the bumper for mounting the hitch ball will allow me to make a recommendation that will work with the bumper of your 2007 Ford Ranger. We have 2 inch hitch balls with 3/4 inch shanks up to 3-3/8 inches long and 1 inch shanks up to 3-3/16 inches long (see link). I am sure we have a ball that will work with your bumper.

  • 4-1/2 inch Rise Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2007 Chrysler 300C Towing Trailer
    You are correct, you do need a 4-1/2 inch rise ball mount to tow your trailer level. The best option will be the Curt ball mount part # C45240. When used in the rise position it will give you exactly a 4-1/2 inch rise. This ball mount also has two hitch pins so that it can be extended out past your rear bumper if the clearance is needed. For a 2 inch ball to fit this ball mount you would want the part # 63845.

  • Trailer Hitch Ball Recommendation for a Bumper Hitch on a 1998 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer
    I would need to know the hole diameter in the bumper of your 1998 Ford Explorer. If it is smaller than the 1 inch shank on ball # 63845, the next size down would be a shank with a 3/4 inch diameter, # TR63822, rated for 3,500 pounds. Down from 3/4 inch we have a 5/8 inch diameter shank, # CB-20Z, which you normally see on lawn mowers and other small equipment so it is highly unlikely it will fit. The best way to measure the opening on the bumper would be to use a sett of dial calipers...

  • Hitch Ball is Loose in Ball Mount
    If your hitch ball is loose then you will want to check to see if there is a ft-lb torque rating located on it. For instance, the Tow Ready 2" Hitch Ball # 63845 has a torque rating on the nut for 250 ft-lbs. If you cannot find a torque rating then the next best thing would be to torque it down so that the washer is flat. This can be a little difficult as the torque ratings for hitch balls can be fairly high - with good reason. You never want to have a loose hitch ball as that can cause...

    The part # 63845 is a standard height hitch ball. If you need additional inch from a hitch ball that fits the same criteria as the # 63845 you'd want the hitch ball # C40033 which is the same except 1 inch taller.

    The spare tire will be reinstalled in the factory location after the hitch installation is complete on your Volvo XC90 (see instructions link).

  • 2 Inch Ball for Alumistinger Ball Mount with 1-1/4 Inch Thick Ball Platform
    You are correct about ball mount # AM3509. The ball platform is indeed 1-1/4 inches thick. The 2 inch ball 63852 does not have a long enough shank to be used with this ball mount. You will need a 2 inch ball with a long shank such as # 63849. It isn't stainless steel like the other ball and there isn't a stainless steel option with a long enough shank that would work.

  • Hitch and Towing Accessories for 2019 Nissan Frontier
    We sure do! I'd recommend the etrailer brand Class III receiver hitch, part # e98869. To complete your towing setup, you'll also need a # 118525 trailer wiring harness to provide a 4 pole connector or # 118266 for a 7-way. For a ball mount, use the # 2923 and for a 1-7/8 inch trailer ball use # 19261 or # 63845 for a 2 inch ball. To see installation videos for the parts I recommended, click the provided links.

  • Does A Weight Distribution System Need To Be Readjusted If I Lift My Truck
    It sounds like you are asking if your weight distribution system needs to be readjusted if the vehicle has been lifted/leveled since it was setup and if so then yes, you will need to change the hitch head height adjustment on the weight distribution shank and the angle of the heard or the tension on the spring bars. Since the rear of the truck has been lifted/leveled you may need a longer shank as well in order to level the hitch ball to the trailer (before coupled) so in that case you...

  • Adjusting Weight Distribution System to Apply More Weight to Front Axle of Tow Vehicle
    Assuming that the weight of your trailer is within the capacity your weight distribution system, you would need to adjust the system so that more force is applied to your spring bars. Try tilting the angle of your weight distribution head back further toward the trailer. This will apply more leverage to the spring bars, and should apply more weight to the front axle of your tow vehicle. I would recommend consulting the instructions that came with your system, and reviewing the set-up...

Secondly, the nut on the underside of the latch can be used to adjust the tension of the latch to a degree. The latch/jaw mechanism of the coupler could be worn or damaged.

  • Hitch Ball Recommendation for a 2009 Toyota Tacoma on the Factory Bumper
    Since the bumper thickness on your vehicle is 1-1/2 inches I would recommend you get a Hitch Ball with 2 inch Diameter and Long Shank, part # 63849. This # 63849 is designed for drawbars and bumpers that are between 1 inch and 2 inches thick. The Hitch Ball with 2 inch Diameter and Medium Shank, part # 63845, that you referenced is designed for drawbars and bumpers that are from 1/2 inch to 1 inch in thickness.

You'll want to look on top of coupler of your trailer and you'll see the ball size it needs and then check out the link I attached where you'll be able to pick the size ball needed.

  • Hitch Ball Recommendation for a 2006 GMC Sierra Bumper
    All bumper ball holes are 3/4 of an inch, so you will need to pick a ball with a 3/4 inch shank diameter. The ball you were looking at, part # 63845, is a 1 inch shank diameter so it wouldn't work for you. If you need a 2 inch hitch ball you would want part # A-82. If you need a 1-7/8 inch ball, you would use part # A-80. Those are our only stainless hitch balls with a 3/4 inch shank. Please note that the A-80 has a capacity of 2,000 pounds whereas A-82 has a capacity of 3,500 pounds.
