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.


ED308 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.


ED308 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.


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.


Because of this mount's significant drop, it's recommended that you install a stabilizer kit (358stabilizerbars - sold separately) to prevent any wobbling and to remove strain from your hitch receiver.


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 ED3012

Hi, everyone, Aiden here with etrailer. Today we're gonna be taking a look at this BulletProof Hitches Adjustable Ball Mount for three inch hitches. Now it's gonna be a pretty large ball mount, but the Extreme Duty Series is going to give you the heaviest weight capacity that BulletProof offers, and it's gonna be good for some of your larger vehicles. Let's check it out. There's a pretty wide range of adjustment here, giving you a maximum drop at the very bottom of nine and a quarter inches. For our motor home today, that's a little much, probably be better off getting a shorter version, but if you've got a taller truck or maybe one that's lifted, then this could give you that extra distance or that extra drop that you need.

And then if you flip the entire thing over, you could get an eight and a quarter inch rise. Now, BulletProof does offer some measurements. You can go from the ground to the bottom inside edge of the receiver tube, and if that's between 22 and 24 inches, then this could be a good fit for you. Now to adjust their height, it's really simple. Just pull the two pins and clips, those are included, and you can slide this up and down the channel to wherever you need.

The other thing you could do is switch this around. You've got a two inch ball and a two and five sixteens inch ball. So depending on what trailer you're hooking up to, you can make that work for those different couple of sizes and match it to the height. Now, depending on the ball you're using, your weight capacities will change. The two and five 16th inch ball will allow you to tow 36,000 pounds, and the two inch ball will allow you to tow 12,000 pounds.

Both are gonna have a maximum tongue weight rating of 6,000 pounds, so keep that in mind as well. And just be sure to check your vehicle that you're using to tow. Yes, this ball mount has a very high weight capacity, but that doesn't necessarily mean that your vehicle does. Go by the lowest rated component and make sure that you're not overloading anything in your towing setup. Now, an important thing to note with BulletProof's Ball Mounts is that there's a lot of different versions of these.

So the Extreme Duty Series is going to give you the heaviest weight capacity, but they also have their HD series. So if you don't need such a high weight capacity, you could go with one of those options and you might find more variation with the drop heights there too. And the other thing is if you don't have a three inch hitch, that's okay. They make versions for two and a half inch, two inch hitches, but the big thing here is the three-inch hitch on this one. They aren't as common, but it's good to know that you've got that option if you need it. The one thing I will say about the hitch size is that it doesn't come with a hitch pin, so you will have to pick up one yourself, and again, make sure that it's capable of working with a three-inch hitch. That hitch pin will need a longer span, so it's important to pick up the right one. I'd strongly recommend a locking hitch pin because with a ball mount that's really nice and gives you all that adjustment, you wanna protect it. There's no point in having a non locking pin there. And when it comes to adjustable heavy-duty ball mounts for your three inch hitch, there are a fair amount of options available. Gen-Y makes quite a few that I'm a personal fan of, but why would you maybe go with this one from BulletProof Well, in my eyes, the accessories that go with this are really next to none, because there's a wide range of them. And you can outfit this to a lot of different needs. For example, you could pick up a pintle lock if you wanted to tow a lunette ring trailer. Other brands like Gen-Y do include that part out of the box, which is maybe a win for them. But if you don't need it, no worries. And if down the road you decide you do, you can always pick up that part. But some of the other things include clevises, or maybe even a receiver tube where you can put a bike rack in here and then still leave your ball mount in the hitch and then take that receiver tube attachment out when you're ready to tow again. So there's some unique options there that I think BulletProof does really well. And if that interests you, you can find those parts here on our site and see if they work for your needs. My other recommendation would be to just look at what you're towing, because this doesn't have any built-in shock absorption or anything like that, which if you don't need it, then no worries, it's gonna get the job done. It's more than capable of towing a heavy trailer and it's gonna have all the adjustment you need. But if you're gonna be towing a trailer that's maybe hauling a car or something just with more sensitive cargo that you wanna protect, maybe a shock absorbing ball mount is the way to go for you. Maybe something like the Gen-Y Torsion ball mount, or even something from Shocker Hitch that has a cushioned airbag there. Again, it just depends on your needs, but if you're looking for that extra protection, it's gonna come at a more premium price point. So you could find those options here at etrailer too. But if you liked everything you saw today, that's just been our look at this Extreme Duty BulletProof Hitches adjustable ball mount. And if you did like this one and you found that it's maybe not the right size for you, they do make one that's a little bit larger with a greater drop height or rise if you flip it around that way too. Both are gonna be the exact same and have the same weight capacity, just different drop heights depending on your needs. Thanks for watching.

BulletProof Hitches 2-Ball Mount for 3" Hitch - 9-1/4" Drop, 8-1/4" Rise - 36,000 lbs - ED308

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (441 Customer Reviews)

The thick channel plates and welded gusset on this solid steel ball mount make it perfect for heavy-duty use. Tow up to 12K with the 2" ball or 36K with the 2-5/16" ball. Adjustable design lets you tow trailers of various heights.

by:

VERY.....VERY.....HEAVY. Nowhere in the description is there any info as to how much it weighs that I saw. I realize that heavier capacities require heavier components, but I was still VERY surprised as to how much it weighs. Going to see if I can return it.



by:

Worth the cost, one hitch will do it all



by:

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



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:

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:

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



by:

Sent me the wrong hitch. Ordered the 6” drop, received the 4” drop. Hitch itself is ok, powder coating wore off ball and where it goes into receiver on first use.



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:

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:

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



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:

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



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:

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:

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:

Work as it should. Worth the money.



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:

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



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:

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:

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:

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.



by:

Works great



by:

Excellent parts and fast delivery. Will buy from again if I need more trailer towing equipment

  • Adjustable Ball Mount With 1-7/8", 2", 2-5/16" and Pintle Lock Capabilities
    The only hitch we currently carry that has all 3 ball sizes along with a pintle lock is the Patriot Hitches 5-Way 3-Ball Mount and Adjustable Drop Hitch Adapter # PH94FR. As this is limited in weight capacity to 7,000lbs due to the drop receiver I have a better option for you. The BulletProof Hitches system will allow you to have everything you are looking for with their easy to change removable accessories. First you can select a ball mount system.

  • Is There a Sticker or Certificate Showing The Vertical Load Rating For The BulletProof # ED308?
    The BulletProof Hitches 2-Ball Mount # ED308 only lists the maximum trailer weights on the sticker placed on the shank. They do not list the vertical load rating on the body of this hitch nor do they provide any certificates with the receiver. I do recommend getting the InfiniteRule Locking Pins # 34061674-D to secure the ball mount in your receiver.

  • Is There 36,000 lb Coupler For 36,000 lb Bulletproof Hitches Ball Mount
    I believe by 36,000 lb ball you are referring to the 36,000 lb rated 2-5/16" ball that is part of the BulletProof Hitches ball mounts such as the 2-Ball Mount for 3" Hitch - 9-1/4" Drop, 8-1/4" Rise # ED308 or 2-Ball Mount for 2-1/2" Hitch - 7-1/4" Drop, 7" Rise # ED256. There is not a 36k coupler to go along with this that we offer, the highest rated coupler we can provide is 21,000 lbs, such as the Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # DM15931-95 or Demco 32-Degree A-Frame Trailer Coupler...
