dimensional diagram

This adjustable ball mount has a maximum capacity of 36,000 lbs, making it ideal for heavy-duty towing. The solid steel construction is strong enough to handle large trailers and heavy cargo, and the matte powder coat finish will protect the ball mount from rust and corrosion, even after repeated use. The BulletProof Hitches adjustable ball mount gives you the strength you need to tow your big loads. And its durable, long-lasting construction can stand the test of time.


Heavy-Duty Construction

Because of its sturdy steel construction, this BulletProof Hitches adjustable ball mount can handle loads up to 36,000 lbs, making it perfect for heavy-duty towing jobs.


ED304 channel

The adjustable channel is made of 5/16" thick, laser-cut steel plates. These steel plates can handle high capacities without bending. And because of the laser cutting, the channel plates have consistently sized pin holes, so you can easily remove or reposition the hitch ball platform.


ED304 gusset

A 1/2" thick steel gusset is welded between the shank and the channel, bracing the mount and keeping the channel from bending, even at the maximum drop or rise.


bulletproof 3.0 shank

The solid steel shank is CNC -chamfered, making it easy to slide the shank into and out of your hitch receiver. And with no sharp edges on the shank, the powder coating is less likely to chip and peel.


bulletproof hitches ball platform

Each adjustable mount includes a 2-ball platform, which fits in the adjustable channel. The 2 hitch balls are welded onto the solid steel platform for maximum strength and stability.


bulletproof hitches pins and clips

Finally, the pins and clips included with the ball mount are made of heat-treated steel to withstand the heavy weight from your load. The nickel undercoat with zinc topcoat provides corrosion resistance and ensures the strength of the pin.


Made in the USA

BulletProof Hitches adjustable ball mounts are made in America and rigorously tested for heavy-duty applications. These ball mounts are used and trusted by various United States government organizations, such as the Department of Transportation, Department of Homeland Security, and all branches of the United States military.


Setting Up the BulletProof Ball Mount

To set up this BulletProof Hitches adjustable ball mount, insert the 3" x 3" shank into your hitch's receiver. Slide the 2-ball platform into the adjustable channel, then use the included pins and clips to secure the platform at the height you need. If you need to switch hitch balls, just remove the pins and clips, flip the ball platform over, and reinsert the pins and clips to secure the balls in place. It's that easy.


BulletProof Ball Mount Accessories

This BulletProof Hitches adjustable ball mount is compatible with a wide variety of accessories (sold separately). Instead of using the included ball to tow, you can install a weight distribution shank (358WEIGHTDIST) in the channel of the mount to attach your weight distribution system. Add a clevis (358CLEVIS) or shackle attachment (358EDSA) for off-road or recovery operations. Or simply add a hitch step (358STEP) to easily access your truck bed.

Video Transcript for BulletProof Hitches 2-Ball Mount Review

Presenter Hey everyone, it's Eve Angeline here at etrailer and today we'll be taking a look at our Bulletproof hitches. Two ball, adjustable ball mount with a maximum capacity of 36,000 pounds. So this is a two inch as well as a two and five 16th inch ball. So if you have different trailer couplers you can adjust it as needed. Now you will have a different weight capacity depending on which one you use on the ball platform. So for the two inch, that's gonna be a 12,000 pound maximum towing capacity.

And then for your two and five 16ths that's gonna be a maximum 36,000 capacity. So still very impressive. Now this is extreme duty. You have the black powder coat finish, matte black too, which will help resist corrosion, but your pins as well. If you've ever had to deal with rusted pins that you can't take off of the ball mount, well you have a zinc topcoat for these pins that weigh even with it out in the elements.

They will help resist rust. Now there are three positions for adjustments. So you can see how there's those different holes. You can have it top one, bottom one. These holes are two inches apart.

To take it apart, you can see how you can just take the clip out, take the pin out, and then you can easily adjust this up and down or even flip it around for using the different hitch ball. Now this includes two pin and clips for the ball platform fitting onto the ball mount. What it does not include though is the hitch pin for your shank to your hitch receiver. So you are gonna need to pick one up separately. Make sure it matches your three inch hitch receiver.

And you can even take a look at some of our options like the infinite rule locking pin set if you wanna secure your ball mount. Now since this is made of a solid steel, it's super heavy duty, but if you just want to flip it over and switch it from rise to drop, it's actually pretty easy to do. Now there are two hitch pinholes here. That way you can have different adjustment for how far past your hitch receiver you want it to be. So we're going to put it on the furthest hole, but each hole is about two inches apart, which gives you a little bit of option there. So you may want to use the other one depending on where your bumper or your fascia sits. We have this on a motor home. You can have this on a truck as well, as long as you have that three inch hitch receiver. So we measure from the center of that hitch pinhole on that receiver to the closest point, which is this fin. That's going to be six inches away. The length this entire ball mount adds to the back of our hitch is going to be about 15 and a half inches. It gives you about four inches rise or drop. But for more specific measurements, we measure from the top inside edge of your hitch receiver right here. So the maximum rise is going to be four and a quarter inches. The maximum drop or the droppiest drop is going to be five and a quarter inches. So if you want to compare this with maybe some other brand options a close one is the CURT adjustable two ball mount. So very similar design. It has two balls, going to adjust up and down. The main difference is going to be the capacity. This has a maximum capacity of 36,000 pounds while the CURT's maximum capacity is in a 20,000 pound range. So definitely a difference there. If you do like this style, you can get this exact same ball mount with a different rise and drop. But check out our product pages and our pictures and our videos if you want more information so that you can get the right ball mount for you. But this right here right now was a quick look at our Bulletproof Hitches two ball adjustable ball mount right here at etrailer.com..

Alex was great to work with. When I called he took the time to understand what I needed and help to find a solution. This was not the first time I have purchased from eTrailer nor will it be the last.



by:

Pure beef. Nothing not to like.
Ended
up buying a 2nd for one of our other trucks.

Still functioning and looking as excellent as it did the day it arrived. Well built hitch, truly fits my needs.



by:

Awesome product and great price. This Bulletproof hitch is definitely well built. I see no problems ahead with this hitch.



by:

I need a solution for my BMW SUV to tow my boat and trailer with two ball sizes and very different height requirements. This worked perfectly. The name Bulletproof fits well - I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and engineering.



by:

So far I am extremely happy with this hitch. It is very heavy duty. My towing capacity has changed and needed to upgrade to a heavy duty hitch. I have no doubts this is going to be Bulletproof!! It is very well built and a solid shank.



by:

Fast delivery, well packed, and the hitch is bad a**, heavy duty quality and very versatile. If your looking for an adjustable hitch this is what you want!!!



by:

I am totally shocked by the weight and quality of the product. Not even one scratch on the finish. It shipped from Illinois to Dallas in only 3 days for free. Now I know why they are called BulletProof. Perfect for my lifted truck. I wished I had gotten this a long time ago!



by:

I bought this hitch just under one year. To date, the hitch has performed fine. HOWEVER, the cheap powder coating has turned the entire hitch into a an eyesore. Its just rusting like mad, and the powder coat is now flaking in large chunks. Looks like crap on the back of the truck. I don't even live in an area where salt accumulates or they use it on the roadway.



by:

Beyond expectations. People come by complimenting on my hitch and asking where I bought it. I did not realize other hitches break. Well, this one won't break



by:

Extremely noisy. Powder coat peeled almost immediately and the tolerances on the pins makes this rattle horribly. I finally got so sick of the noise I cut foam to put between the ball mount and receiver. This hitch has not seen much use and only for light duty (under 10k lbs). I won't buy another one. All of the other hitches we have are Andersen Rapid Hitch. I tried this after all the claims by BulletProof on how great they are. Very disappointed



by:

Overall appearance is fantastic. Very heavy and appears to be indestructible. We will see how it holds up over time.



by:

I own several adjustable 2-1/2" hitches and like this one a lot. It isn't terribly heavy for being steel and is very easy to adjust. I like the pins versus the key-operated mechanism on my aluminum adjustable hitch. Works great with my Chevy 2500 and various trailers and boats from 5000 to 14000 lbs.



by:

Well packaged, fast shipping, it's going to give me the adjustability I need on my hitch and maintain the hitch towing capacity.



by:

The hitch looks very well made. I recently made some changes to my 02 F250 and needed a drop hitch.I mostly pull a #10000 GTW equipment trailer but occasionally pull a #14000 GTW dump trailer and a utility trailer with a 2" ball. This hitch fits my needs perfectly.



by:

My first and ongoing impression with your company: Friendly, competent people providing quality services. The hitch is everything I hoped it'd be, and should provide years of dependable service. Thanks again! I will use your outfit again without hesitation and tell others the same..



by:

Worst customer service ever. Took almost two months for them to deliver my purchased items to me. After a few weeks of phone calls asking where my stuff was they finally delivered my items, later than the 5-7 business days they promised as well. I will never buy anything from this website again.



by:

Work as it should. Worth the money.



by:

Fast shipping! Great service! This is my go to place for all my trailer & towing needs



by:

I purchased the 2-1/2" Bulletproof Adj Ball Mount for my 2019 RAM 2500 (Laramie, 4WD, 20" Rims&Tires, Off-Road Suspension) to have 1 mount for various trailers. This replaces various 2" mounts used on my 01 Silverado 2500. This is one serious, substantial piece of equipment! Heavy, good welds, nice powder coating! Pix compares this mount with a 7500# 2" Draw-tite mount. Nothing wrong with the Draw-tite, but no comparison in mass.
Some measurements, if interested: Truck: inside top of Receiver: 25" above grade. Bottom of mount without balls: 9-3/4" above grade (clearance). With 2-5/16" ball up: At lowest point: Top of Ball: 17" above grade. bottom of 2" ball: 9-1/4" above grade (clearance). At highest point: Top of Ball: 26-7/8" above grade. With 2" Ball up: At lowest point: Top of Ball: 16-1/2" above grade; bottom of 2-5/16" ball: 8-3/4" above grade (clearance). At highest point: Top of Ball: 26-1/2" above grade.
etrailer shipped quickly, only in original box from Bulletproof, with no exterior shipping box, but box was completely taped, so package arrived in good shape.
1 minor complaint: no pin included for securing mount into receiver.



by:

This is quite a robust hitch. I received it in record time and it's already mounted to our motorhome First trip starts this coming weekend so we shall see but I believe this hitch is exactly what we need to tow a 24 ft. flatbed trailer with our Ford Expedition. Well built hitch and excellent service from eTrailer!



by:

Fantastic. After a year of ownership and heavy use in the construction industry, I believe this hitch could hold the weight of the world on it!



by:

Our hitch arrived fast. The box was marked a different size than what we ordered. A quick phone call to them helped us determine what we received was what we ordered and needed. Thank you.

  • Is There a 3-Ball Ball Mount For 3 Inch Hitch With 5 Inch Drop
    Hi Tommy; that's correct there isn't a 3-ball ball mount for a 3 inch hitch with exactly a 5 inch drop. The closest is a 4-1/2 inch drop like you said with the 21,000 lb max capacity B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS30048B. There is another option with a bit closer to the drop you want - 5-1/4 inches - but it's a 2-ball mount. I know you asked for the tri-ball but I did want to just throw this out there as an option. For that you would need the 22,000 lb max capacity BulletProof Hitches...

  • Fit of BulletProof Adjustable Ball Mount on 2018 Ford F350
    As long as your 2018 Ford F350 is equipped with the 2-1/2 inch hitch, and the distance from the inside bottom edge of the receiver tube of the hitch to the ground is between 12-18 inches, the BulletProof # MD254 Hitch adjustable ball mount would work great for you. The ball mount provides a 2 and a 2-5/16 inch ball. If your F350 is equipped with the OEM 3 inch hitch, you'd want to use # ED304 instead. You might also consider a keyed-alike locking pin set, part # 34061674-D which secures...
