Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Fabrication Parts - Receiver Tube - C49480 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Curt Combo Bar with the 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver. This is in a raw finish, and it's 48" long. Now this raw steel hitch receiver is made from steel for maximum strength. It can be used to extend the reach of your receiver, or to create a piece of custom towing equipment. The receiver bar is sized and punched to fit all the common weight distribution hitch ball mounts or utility ball mounts.If you notice on the end right here, it has a forged 1/2" reinforcing collar for increased strength. The tube is crafted with a raw finish so it's ideal for welding.

Also if you notice, they do have a pre-drilled 5/8" diameter hitch pin hole for your pinning clip to go through. This part is made in the U.S.A.Specs on this, we're going to measure the overall length. From the very end to the other end is 48" long. The width of it is 2-1/2" by 2-1/2". The receiver opening is going to be 2" by 2", so it will accept any 2" by 2" ball mount shank.

And the weight on it is going to be right at about 29 pounds.But that should do it for the review on the Curt Combo Bar with the 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver in a raw finish, 48" long.

2" x 2" Receiver bar is sized and punched to fit all common weight-distributing hitch ball mounts or utility ball mounts. 48" Long with a forged collar and a raw finish.


The staff was very helpful and patient on the phone. Once I explained what I was trying to accomplish, Kim took the time to make sure that what I was ordering were the right products for my needs. Top notch. Would, and have recommended them to my friends. Thank you for all your help.


Item is well made and is as described.


Good product, delivered as promised, no wait. A little confusion on the size, was hoping it would fit into existing receiver and extend it by 48", not an adapter, as expected, but I can find the 2" piece necessary to make it work. Otherwise, good quality, plenty strong, will do as promised, no complaints


Worked great just what I needed to build a hitch to extend for a truck camper THANKS


Just recieved my combo bar and am looking forward using.


I used this to fabricate a trailer hitch on our fifth wheel Toy Hauler. Item arrived the next day.

Ask the Experts about this CURT Hitch Fabrication Parts

  • What is the Wall Thickness of Curt 12
    Yes, the # C49480 combo bar would accept a ball mount or accessory with a standard 2 inch shank. The outer diameter of the tubing would be 2-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches, with a wall thickness of a little under 1/4 of an inch.

  • Why Doesn't the Curt Combo Bar with 2-Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver # C49480 Have a Weight Capacity
    The Curt Combo Bar with 2-Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver # C49480 does not carry a specific tongue weight or towing capacity because these ratings are entirely dependent on the specific installation. The surfaces it is welded to and the manner of installation will be the determining factors in its actual capacity. I verified with Curt that this item carries no specific ratings since it is a general-purpose item.

  • Does the Curt Combo Bar # C49480 have a Weight Capacity
    Officially, Curt combo bar # C49480 doesn't have a capacity. Curt uses this bar when they build hitches rated up to 17,000 pounds. However, it depends on how it is integrated into the rest of the hitch, what it is going on, and how it and the whole assembly fabricated for it are attached.

  • Product Comparison Between the Curt and Tow Ready Combo Bars
    Besides the price difference the only real other difference is that the # C49480 and the # 80948 are made by separate companies. The Curt combo bar is # C49480 and the Tow Ready combo bar is # 80948. Tow Ready is a brand that is owned by a larger parent company named Cequent. These companies compete with each other in the trailering market so it isn't uncommon to see two similar parts with different pricing. To answer your question, some customers prefer one brand name over the other...

  • Wall Thickness of Tow Ready Combo Bar 80948 and Curt Combo Bar C49480
    I went to our warehouse to measure the actual wall thickness of the Tow Ready Combo Bar # 80948 and the similar Curt # C49480, both of which are 48-inches long with a raw finish. With a digital caliper I measured the wall thickness of the Tow Ready combo bar as 0.20 to 0.21-inches and the Curt was the same. Since these items are not machined there may be some slight unit to unit variances, especially if you are talking about thousandths of an inch. On the receiver end of these bars there...

  • Hitch Fabrication Bar That Can be Welded for 2004 Dodge Ram
    We do have weldable trailer hitch receivers for your 2004 Dodge Ram. The longest one is going to be 48 inches, and you can use either the Tow Ready Combo Bar with 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # 80948 or Curt Combo Bar with 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # C49480. These hitches do not have any specific weight ratings because ratings are dependent on the entire fabrication and install. I have added links to video reviews for you to take a look at of both hitches.

  • Availability of Longer Hitch Extender for Help Backing Jet Ski Trailer into Water
    The # C49480 isn't a hitch extender. It's actually just a 48 inch long hitch tube for fabrication purposes. If you had a 2-1/2 inch hitch the Reese extender part # RP45292 is 34 inches long and might work well for you.

  • Is there a Curt Solid Steel 2" Hitch Bar with Raw Finish in 30" Length?
    We do have some hitch bars but unfortunately, we do not have any stolid steel 2" hitch bars in a 30" length. The longest one we have is the # D36 you were looking at, which is a 24" length. We do have an Unfinished Receiver Tube # C49480 that is longer, but it is 48" so you would have to cut it down. I also included a link to our full selection of hitch fabrication parts for you to look for the best solution for your application.

  • Trailer Hitch Extension for Motorhome To Use When Launching A Boat
    The Draw-Tite Hitch Extender # HE18 is out longest trailer hitch extension that does not require a specialty trailer hitch. It will allow you to extend the hitch 18". This extension will reduce the hitch capacity on your motorhome by 50% or 350lbs tongue weight and 3,500lbs trailer weight, whichever is lower. If you let me know what motorhome you have I can see if there is a specialty hitch available that would allow you to use a longer extension.
