Video Transcript for Tow Ready Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - 63849 Review

Today we'll be taking a look at part number 63849. This is the Hidden Hitch Hitch Ball with the two inch diameter and a long shank rated at 7500 pounds. The diameter of our shank is one inch and the length of our shank is three and three eights of an inch. This does have a really nice chrome finish. The lock washer and the knot is included and again it has a capacity of 7500 pounds and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Now we'll going to show you how this installs. This is going to fit drawbars or ball mounts with one to two inch thickness.

We'll go ahead and place that through the hole, place on our lock washer and go ahead and thread on the knot. Now you want to be sure that you do to work it down to the specifications recommended by the manufacturer. It also has these nice wrench holds here on the side so that way you can grip it while you work it down. That will complete today's review of part number 63849, the Hidden Hitch Hitch Ball with a two inch diameter and long shank rated at 7500 pounds. .

Just the right product for my existing hitch on used truck that I bought. I had a bit of difficulty finding hitch ball with the right length shaft until I found etrailer. This ball fits perfectly in chrome finish looks great. The rated load capacity should serve well for anything my half ton truck will pull. 517858

I have no negative experiences to report. The product is working as expected or better.

I ordered and received two 2" hitch balls with long shanks, which I found difficult to find in stores. Both hitch balls are of good quality, priced reasonably, and even with shipping I was happy with the order and final costs. Items packaged well, received in perfect condition, and received ahead of seller committment. I have had perfect experience with all orders from this seller. Highly recommend. 271992

Yesthe hitch ball is of excellent quality. We use it ONE day per year only to pull trolleys on the 4th of July in Seward. It should last 100 years. Happy with the product. Brad

Looks like the picture and dimensions are same as in the description. Plan to tow camper trailer and off-road vehicles. Obviously, can't tow without a ball on the hitch and it meets weight requirement of the vehicle. 681220

I needed a 3 inch trailer Chrome trailer ball with a 3 inch shank; impossible to find at a local parts store in Ocala, FL in my local area. So I fired up the computer and let google do the searching and I read the reviews and checked the prices. eTrailer was hands down consistently in the top 3 among all of the different sites I checked for prices, quality, customer service and delivery. They did not disappoint me! My 2 inch bChrome ball was here less than a week after I ordered it, installed easily with supplied lock washer and nut, noting could be easier! Great people, product and service! 671708

Fits perfect, I have been looking all over the place locally for a trailer ball with the longer shaft as a standard length shaft was too short for my truck and I was unable to thread on the nut and washer on the bottom. This 3 inch shaft works perfect, plenty of extra length if needed. Excellent product !! 342447

Purchased the 63849 hitch ball 2x1x3-1/4 so I could put the Reese sway control bracket on, works great with the long shank with extra threads, much safer. 327168

Do you have a question about this Hitch Ball?


  • What Size Ball Shank Diameter and Length Works with Reese Sway-Control Bracket RP26003
  • The ball hole diameter on the sway control bracket # RP26003 is 1 inch. I have included a link to the 2 inch balls that have a 1 inch diameter shank for you. There are various lengths available from 2 inches to 3-3/8 inches. Since I am not sure what length you normally use I would err on the side of caution and go with the longest, # 63849.

  • 2 Inch Diameter Hitch Ball with Long Shank
  • We have the Long Shank Hitch Ball, # C40020, that has a 2 inch hitch ball and a 3 inch shank and a towing capacity of 6000 pounds. Another option is the Hidden Hitch Long Shank Ball, # 63849, which has a 3-3/8 inch long shank and 7,500 lb capacity. Finally you could use the Tow Ready Long Shank Hitch Ball, # 19255, that you mentioned. This ball has a 3-3/8 inch shank and 3,500 lb capacity.

  • Height from Base to Top of Tow Ready Hitch Ball
  • The Hitch Ball with 2" Diameter and 3-1/4" Long Shank, 7,500 lbs GTW # 63849 is approximately 2-3/4 inches from the base to the top of the ball. The shank is 3-1/4 inches long and has a 1 inch diameter, which is smaller than most pintle hitches accept, though if that's what yours is then it will work for you! I have added a link to a video review of this hitch ball and also added a link to our selection of pintle hitch balls for you to check out just in case you needed something with...

  • Can I Use a Hitch Ball With a Nut Between the Ball and the Ball Mount to Raise the Towing Height
  • The Hitch Ball with 2" Diameter and Long Shank, item # 63849, is designed to mount into ball mounts that have a thicker ball mount location and cannot be mounted without the flat portion of the mounting surface contacting the ball mount. Mounting the ball in a raised position will compromise the strength of the ball and put undo stress on the ballmount and hitch. You did not mention the year make and model of your vehicle, or the size of your hitch so it is hard to make a recommendation...

  • Recommended Curt Receiver Hitch for 2005 Dodge Magnum RT
  • Curt offers two different receiver hitches for your 2005 Magnum, the Class II you mentioned, part # 12240 or a Class III, part # 13465. Although both receivers would work great on your vehicle, I always recommend choosing a Class III with a 2 inch receiver opening over the Class II with the 1-1/4 inch opening whenever the option is available. The more common Class III 2 inch receiver will provide a better selection of hitch mounted accessories like bike racks or cargo carriers. If...

  • Will Reese Sway Control Tab Fit Curt Ball Mount 45270
  • The sway control bracket part # RP26003 would fit on the ball mount part # C45270 that you referenced. You would need to go with a much longer shanked hitch ball like the part # 63849 to ensure you have enough threads to attach the nut.

  • 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 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. I attached an FAQ article on hitch balls below for you to check out also.

  • Brophy Balll Mount # BM20 Recommendation for a 2005 Jeep Liberty
  • As long as both your 2005 Jeep Liberty and your trailer hitch have towing capacities that are above 2,800 lbs you would have not a problem using Ball Mount 3/4 inch Rise or 2 inch Drop, part # BM20, on the hitch. You might also be interested in purchasing a Hitch Ball with 2 inch Diameter and Long Shank, part # 63849, as well as a Hitch Ball with 1-7/8 inch Diameter and Long Shank, part # 19261. I attached an FAQ on ball mounts that you might find informative also.

  • Reversible Ball Mount with 2 inch ball for both rise and
  • We do not carry a ball that will do this, however what you might try is an adjustable ball mount, like part # MT70067. This would give you the rise and drop you need and would only use one ball.

  • Ball Mount for 2012 Wrangler Sahara Unlimited Towing Snowmobile Trailer
  • Being within two inches of level, either over or under would be close enough. A ball mount like part # 2923 would be perfect. The ball mount uses a trailer ball with a 1 inch diameter shank like part # 19261 for a 1-7/8 inch ball, or # 63849 for a 2 inch ball.

  • What Trailer Hitch Works Best for My 2005 Toyota Highlander
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Class III # 13530 will fit on your father-in-laws 2005 Toyota Highlander and I recommend this hitch out of the two we offer. While all are similar in design and install in a similar manner, the Curt hitch is rated for weight distribution with a 4000 lb. GTW and 400 lb. TW rating. The Draw-Tite models are not rated for weight distribution. The Curt hitch will be able to tow a trailer and hold a 2" hitch-mounted bike rack with ease. I also recommend the Trailer...

  • Can the Extra-Extra Long Class III Ball Mount # 80232 be Used on a 2006 Honda Ridgeline

This means that whichever item (vehicle, hitch, ball mount, or ball) has the lowest gross trailer weight or tongue weight rating will be the maximum you can tow or carry in the hitch on your vehicle.

  • How to Pick Out a Hitch Ball for a 2008 Chevy Silverado 1500, Hitch Recommendation

If you do not have a hitch on your 2008 Chevy Silverado 1500 I think your best option for towing would be to install one. For that I would recommend the Curt Hitch part # 13322. Then to pick out a ball mount to insert into the hitch opening of the hitch you will first need to decide how much rise/drop you need. Check out...
