Really heavy duty solid steel 2 inch square, really thick steel tongue and and tight fitting hole for the ball bolt so little chance of ball rattle or slipping. Nice smooth welding and finish.

Very nice, heavy duty and worth the extra couple of bucks, plus Made in USA.

etrailer is the best.

Heavy duty and exactly what I was looking for.

- BWBMHD30010

Ball mount is awesome and super high quality and heavy duty over and above what I will need to tow my 7000 pound car trailer but I like it that way! Great job to everyone involved. My hat is off to the fabricators, made in USA Mount arrived without a nick, perfect weld marks and flawless show quality paint job. I may not even use it, it is that nice. Maybe put it in a display case and start a collection. Fast shipping, 2 days

Nice mount.

Product is extremely heavy duty. much more than I will need, but I appreciate quality made is USA products. Etrailer packaging not so great. Box was torn by weight of this item, which caused a chip in the finish of the item.

Heavy duty. Made from a solid piece of steel. Looks good well made

- BWBMHD30010

Good quality. Does what it's supposed to do.

- BWBMHD30010

Solid shaft, weighty, but expecting a long life from it. I'll have to hunt around for someone who has the right tool for getting [torque specs] on the ball, but shouldn't be a big problem. Package tracking was excellent and on time.

  • What Length Ball Mount Do I Need To Use?
    Longer ball mounts are helpful for creating clearance from the rear of the vehicle to allow you to lower your tailgate while towing and not interfere with a tongue mounted jack or install hitch mounted accessories (like bike racks) that may require more clearance from the rear of the vehicle. The length that you'll want to use really comes down to whether or not you really need an extra 1-3/4" between your trailer coupler and your truck. For all intents and purposes, the # BWBMHD30010...

  • 16K Rated Ball Mount Made in the USA for 2 Inch Trailer Hitches
    Forged Ball Mount # 40330 is made in China but B&W ball mount # BWBMHD30010 is made in the USA. This one is 8-1/2 inches long but there is a longer one, # BWBMHD30011, which is 10-1/4 inches long.

  • Can the End of a Ball Mount Be Trimmed Down to Fit in a Trailer Hitch on a 1999 GMC Yukon
    Part of what gives ball mount # 40330 its capacity is the amount of material inside of the receiver. By trimming it down it makes the capacity unknown and could compromise the structural integrity of the ball mount. Also, it is a solid steel shank so trimming it is no small task! The best option is a new ball mount that is a better fit. I recommend B&W ball mount # BWBMHD30010. It has the same rise and drop spec, same weight rating (though the tongue weight capacity is limited to 1,600...

  • Are There Any Made in the U.S.A. Heavy Duty Ball Mounts for 2" Receivers Available?
    No. While Curt is an American company and manufactures a great deal of their products in the U.S.A., the Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mounts like the # C45340 is not one of those products. If you're looking for a ball mount that is made in the U.S.A., the B&W Heavy-Duty Ball Mount # BWBMHD30010 has a 16,000-lbs capacity and the same 1" rise/2" drop as the Curt model you were looking at.

    Yes, the B&W Heavy-Duty Trailer Hitch Receiver part # BWHDRH25124 is a confirmed fit for your 1992 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup as long as you have a factory rear bumper. Depending on your intended uses for the trailer hitch receiver, I recommend using both the B&W Heavy-Duty Ball Mount part # BWBMHD30010 in addition to our T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector part # 118315 for a complete towing setup.

  • Comparing B&W Heavy-Duty Ball Mount to Curt Heavy Duty Ball Mount
    The BandW Heavy-Duty Ball Mount - 1 Rise, 2 - 8-1/2 Long - 16,000 lbs # BWBMHD30010 is very similar tot he Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount with 2-5/16" Ball - 1" Rise, 2" Drop - 15,000 lbs # C45331 which has the same hitch ball shank dimension of 1-1/4 inches as well as the same rise and drop. Another benefit is the hitch ball is already installed and torqued to spec. Both are quality ball mounts with the B&W having a slightly higher rated capacity. Stock levels change constantly...

  • B&W Trailer Hitch Options for a 2007 Chevy Silverado Classic 2500 with 8 Foot Bed
    We don't have a picture but I can tell you that once installed trailer hitch # BWHDRH25187 will have its receiver directly below the bumper and the face of the receiver will be basically flush with the rear bumper. Please note that this hitch is designed to fit a 2007 Chevy Silverado Classic 2500 with an 8 foot bed AND 10 inch step bumper. If the truck has the regular step bumper you would use # BWHDRH25189. It will also be right under the rear bumper and the receiver will be about flush...

    Yes, the B and W Heavy Duty trailer hitch part # BWHDRH25132 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 6 foot bed that has either a standard or step bumper. For a heavy duty hitch with as much capacity as this hitch has you really aren't going to find a better deal. For a ball mount you would want the part # BWBMHD30010 and then for a 2-5/16 inch ball part # BWHB94004.
