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.


ED30OFFSET 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.


ED30OFFSET gusset

Two 1/2" thick steel gussets are 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. And the zinc finish provides corrosion resistance.


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 Adjustable 2-Ball Mount Review

AJ: What's up everybody. It's AJ with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to checking out this ball mount from BulletProof Hitches. Now this is the extreme variety of theirs, so it's going to be the most weight capacity you can have on a 2" hitch, but, it's not just that, as it can be adjustable too, so you can move this all the way up and down and adjust it, if your truck's a little bit higher than your trailer, you've got a lifted truck, you can get this ball where you need it to do, that way you have a flat tow and you're all good to go. Now, I did mention that this is the extreme variation. Usually BulletProof Hitches puts their ball mounts in three different categories, we have medium-duty, heavy-duty and then extreme.

So this is going to be the extreme one like I mentioned, it's going to have the highest weight capacity and that's going to be 30,000 pounds, but that's if you're using the 2-5/16" ball, if you flip this around and use the 2" ball, you're going to have 12,000 in weight capacity.So just keep that in mind, which will you're using, it does change when you go to switch them around. But they're both going to have the tongue weight of 6,000 pounds, so either way, you're good with that. Now the extreme category has a bunch of different options that go with it. You can get a bunch of different drops and rises with it. So you get from as little as 4" of a drop, and as much as a 12" drop, or you can get it in the offset, like this one, where you have four on top and six on the bottom.

That way you don't have to flip this constantly when you're adjusting the ball. So if you get this set the right way, the first time you can always go up and down with it instead of pulling the whole thing out and putting it back in there.Now it's also available in a couple of different hitch options, but today we're going to focus on the 2" hitch. And no matter which one you get, the weight capacity is going to be the exact same and same with the tongue weight. But how easy is it to use It's actually pretty easy. I like how easily these pins slide in and out, that always doesn't happen.

Sometimes when you get the different ball mounts, they don't line up perfectly, you have to mess with it a little bit where you have to move this part, just to get the surface to slide in, or rotate this to get it to go in and it kind of fight you. This easily just slides in and out, every time, so I liked that.The pins are also pretty heavy-duty too, so they're going to last you a long time. You don't have to worry about them bending or anything, it's pretty solid. So you have two of those, you pull the clips on the side and then pull the pins out, then you can flip it around, if you want to use the 2" ball, you can, and then adjust the height where you need it. So we'll say let's put ours right in the middle and slide that right back in, the top one and the bottom one, free our clips.And it's that easy.

Sure beats having to take it all the way back out of the hitch, flip them around. Some of them have it set up like this, but you've got to loosen it and then flip it and replace the ball, that's a pain. This is way easier, especially if you have multiple trailers and you're doing that all the time. The other thing that I would note is that if you look at the hitch, it doesn't come with a hitch pin, but there's locking hitch pin they sell separately. So you can pick that up, that way it locks the ball mount to the hitch, and it comes in a couple of different kits. You can order just one and use it in the hitch, or two or three. And we would do with three, is you can replace these pins with those locking pins, that way you got the ball, locked to the ball mount, and then the ball mounts lock to the hitch.That way nobody's messing with this, it's not going anywhere. Throwing around the word heavy-duty when it comes to these BulletProof hitch ball mounts. I just want to show you what I was talking about. You can see that it's a solid steel shank, so it's not hollow. So it's all the way in there so that's going to be nice and durable, when you go to put it in your hitch. It also has two different hitch pin holes, and that's so that you can get more of the shank in the hitch depending on your hitch. So when I go inside in there, we're going to slide it to this one, instead of the first one, because then more of the shank will be in there and that just gives you more strength overall, if you're doing that heavy duty towing.Just slide it by, I have that second one. You can see how much more of it is in there, so that goes pretty much to the back of the hitch, giving you just more strength for that heavy-duty towing like I was saying. Now, just because you have this though, doesn't mean you can tow the maximum capacity. So make sure you check your hitch and see how much your vehicle can handle before you go lifting something way more than you should. With that solid steel shank, come to these gussets, and these add extra strength and support all the way up and down this offset or your ball mounts. They're all going to have them, that way, if you are using it at a weird angle, like if you're using it all the way down here, all the way up here, you're not going to sacrifice any of that strength. It's going to be just as strong down here as it will be here in the center.So not only does it look heavy-duty, I mean, it feels heavy-duty. It's heavy when you lift it up, which is good. Our customers have a lot of comments on our side saying that they opened the box and they we're impressed right away when they lifted up, they knew that this was going to last a long time. I mean, you got the solid steel here on the sides where you move the ball mount up and down. So even if you we're to have some kind of accident or something, I don't think this would be damaged at all. So that means it's going to work with you a long time, which is good because you can invest in it and build on it too. There's a bunch of different accessories on here, so if you get a different kind of trailer or different equipment, you don't have to worry about buying a different ball mount downline.These pulleys spins out, replace this portion with a pencil or a clevis pin or even shackles you can add. You can even add a step up here on the top that you can step onto to get into your vehicle. So there's plenty of options for this ball mount out there because it's going to be with you a long time and that's good that you can upgrade it and customize it. That way, you don't have to buy a bunch of different accessories, you don't want a bunch of 10 of these in the back, you got this one and just the different accessories to swap out whenever you need it.Just to show you, it does move a little bit in the hitch, but that's because I'm pulling on pretty hard. It shouldn't be pulling side to side that hard, and there's nothing pushing down on it. If you push down on it with a weight, if you've got a trailer hooked up, it's going to be way more quiet than it would be, just in the back there. So you might hear it a little bit if you're not towing anything, but I think it'll be nice and steady. I don't think you have any problems, there's not much room for it to move, so it might just go a little bit like that while you're on the road, you probably won't even hear it in the cabin. I mentioned the medium-duty, heavy-duty and our extreme-duty here. I talked about all three of them with our rider earlier today, you should check out our conversation.So me and Dave over the last couple days have been working on these BulletProof hitch ball mounts and we have them laid out here. They're in three different categories. They come in a bunch of different drops and all that and different pitches. But we grouped them up in the main categories, we have the medium one, it's over here. There's going to be the heavy-duty one, and then we have two different versions of the extreme one. So those are the main categories that these come in. You know anything about these Would you have any thoughts on them so far Lindsey: What do you mean when you split them into, I mean, I have an idea of what you mean, but when you split out the extreme, what is extreme-duty I feel like we know heavy and heavy-duty, but when you say extreme-duty, is that more for the vehicle you're using, for the trailer you're using or just inaudible 00:07:02 extreme person and you want the best AJ: Yeah. It's the highest weight capacity is what we figured out when going through them. I think they just didn't want to call it light-duty, medium-duty, heavy-duty, so they said medium, heavy, extreme and extreme sounds cool, let's be honest. Yeah, so that's going to be your heavier weight capacity and heavier tongue weight. I think they have the biggest drops and rises too. Dave: I think that at least on our side, the heavy-duty, right there had the biggest drop, which was 16" and then all the extreme-duty, the highest they went up to was 12" drop, which is what that guy right there is, it's huge. AJ: Yeah. We put it on the truck, it touched the ground. So it doesn't work on this vehicle. We have to get Jake's truck. Lindsey: Yeah, so you're going to need some lift or you have something lifted for sure. AJ: Oh yeah. Dave: Yap. Speaker 4: So someone who's looking for the extreme-duty is someone who, I'm pretty sure that we have one in a 3" hitch receiver, so basically they want the absolute highest capacity to tow pretty much whatever they can find. Dave: Right. And that's one thing why the extreme, we have it separated into the two categories here. For all the other ones, like the heavy duty, it comes in a 2", a 2-1/2" and a 3" variant, and the weight capacity is the same across all of them. Whereas the extreme, the 2" version is rated up to a max of 30,000 for the gross towing weight and then the 2-1/2" and the 3" version of the extreme is 36,000. So you get a little bump in weight capacity with that one. Lindsey: Though there's probably not going to be the option to actually go that high with your truck or the- Dave: Exactly, that's one thing we are pointing out in the videos, just because it's rated this high, doesn't mean you can magically tow that much. AJ: inaudible 00:09:20. Lindsey: So I think one of the things about these, being rated that high, obviously one thing is, yeah, you can tow as much as you want, if the rest of your setup is capable of doing that. But I would say it's also just showing the quality. So if we've tested this to 36 K, you know that this thing is going to last and it's going to be sturdy and it's probably not going to rattle as much. And I think you can trust it more or it feels at least like you can trust it more. Is that the impression you got playing around with it too They're heavy, they're so heavy inaudible 00:00:00 really heavy inaudible 00:00:00. AJ: Even the customers on the website we're saying how aggressive they we're to just open them, pull them out of the box and how heavy do they feel. They're super heavy-duty, I don't have any doubt that they can handle everything they say they can. Even the solid shank bottom shows me all sides of steel here, so you're not going to have any issues with this thing when you go to use it to tow. That and then the gusset sits on the back, that's what this part's called, it adds more strength all the way down to wherever you put the fall if you are using the slowest drop or the highest high, it's still going to have that durability and that weight capacity it says it does. inaudible 00:00:00 take away from some of the hitches that you can put the ball around the backside and store them there instead.You can't do that on this one but, I'm thinking of the person that's looking at a BulletProof one and wants heavy-duty they don't really care about style as much other than it saying it's BulletProof sounds pretty cool. But other than that, I think they're getting it for just function and not style or extra stuff. Lindsey: Yeah. The only one that you're supposed to be allowed to actually store in the back, is the BMW tow and stow and I would guess that yeah, that customer is more a loyal BMW customer who really likes the branding. And it's more about the BMW lifestyle as opposed to the rough and tumble heavy-duty, I'm a real tower kind of crosstalk 00:11:16. AJ: Yeah. Lindsey: How much of that is cast versus welded, I'm assuming the gusset is welded on and the channel's welded on, but is the shank itself Is it welded together or is it all cast AJ: It looks like it's welded. Well, the shank itself looks fine. It looks like it's welded to these parts here. Dave: Yeah. But the shank itself, yeah. AJ: crosstalk 00:11:35 It's solid. Lindsey: Okay. Speaker 4: Dude, not all of them have a solid shank, right I think some have- AJ: Right. The medium inaudible 00:11:45, the medium one over here, let me set this down. This one has a hollow shape. Speaker 4: Right. Lindsey: And it's still going to be fine for what it's rated for inaudible 00:11:59 material costs. AJ: Yeah. I mentioned that. So, sometimes it's a little bit lighter than the other ones, you're not going to be towing as heavy kind of stuff. You could probably add an anti-rattle on the inside. If it did rattle around a little bit, since it's lighter than the other ones and you can take care of that. Speaker 4: Is there a lot of rattle overall I mean, I know that you're taking these two parts, the ball mount and the actual channel, and you're putting them together, since it's not like a single part. Is there a lot of rattle, did you notice AJ: There's still a little bit of movement, you can check out the one that's in the hitch here. We've got the offset one, if we didn't mention that at the beginning, there is the offset version. So it's got the lift and the rise on it, that way you don't have to flip it as much, you can just move this up and down. I think it's a 4" here and 6" down there so you can flip it however you want to use it. It does rattle a little bit, but there's also nothing putting any pressure down on there. So I assume when you have a trailer out on there, it's going to take out a lot of that movement. inaudible 00:13:00 the ball moves very little bit, but these pins are really sturdy, I really liked those. I say that in the video too, because a lot of these things, it's hard to get your hands on these places and pull these pins out without scratching the crap out of your hands or pinching them somewhere.I like the adjustments on the side, very clear and easy to pop that thing out, get the clip out, I'm sorry. Then you pull that pin out. And the other thing is, I was impressed, and all the ones we've worked with, all the holes are drilled properly. Sometimes I'm used to try to twist it and you have to fight that thing to push it in there, and I don't want to do that every time if I have to flip this around. This worked every time, really easy to slide in and out. So I was impressed with those little things, just because all the bad rusty ball mounts I've dealt with around here from customers and stuff, that sucks. Lindsey: Yeah. How's the finishing there too, I inaudible 00:13:48 start wearing off in the- AJ: Yeah. I saw online that the customer was saying after they bought and towed a few times, the ball scratches pretty easily. But again, I think that goes back to who's buying this one. They're not really looking at style, they don't need it shiny-looking and fancy, I think they just using as a tow and it gets scratched, it's going to get scratched. That's how I was thinking. It looks like it's scratched, a little bit on the inside here, when I moved it up and down. Lindsey: Yeah. I mean, that's the nature of the beast, you're going to have some scratching in there. I do think style wise, I like the look of the matte black a lot more than the gloss myself. AJ: Yeah, I agree. Dave: It's simple. There's not a lot of thrill to it I guess. inaudible 00:14:34 I like that. AJ: Yeah. Because the Gen-Y one's got a lot going on where they got the- Dave: Like that hammered finnesse. AJ: . different hitches and all that. I mean, that's a benefit that pulling that out and sliding it in a channel and then adding the pin, because you do have to lift this up and move it, but you can just put the top in here and then it goes into place pretty easily. Lindsey: And we have lock sets, I think too, right, that inaudible 00:15:04 in the channel. inaudible 00:15:07 anything or. AJ: Yeah, we're using one right now to lock it into the hitch and you can get it in kits of one, two or three's. So they'll work to replace those pins as well. We're actually going to shoot that video for the lock kits right after this huddle. Lindsey: Ah, cool. AJ: There's a lock here. Locks are interesting, I had issues with the key, or I guess not so much the key, but pushing them back into place. They're supposed to be able to just push it right back on there. Let's see if I can get it to do it. And there's this very, very slight click, like you could barely hear it. It doesn't push on there, it's easy as I feel like it should. I don't know what's up with that. Dave: You're going to have to shove on it just to get it. AJ: What was it on there Oh yeah, it works now in the huddle, of course it does. inaudible 00:16:04. Lindsey: Is this from BulletProof or is this InfiniteRule AJ: This is from Bulletproof. Lindsey: It is Bulletproof, okay, cool. I couldn't remember between BulletProof and Gen-Y and all the others who we actually had locks from them for. AJ: Right. Lindsey: Speaking of Gen-Y since you brought them up too, I think those are going to be two of the most often compared also, because if you're looking for HD first, you're looking at being in the HD market, actually towing that much weight. But second of all, if you're the kind of person who also wants to just look like you can tow that much weight, I think you're between BulletProof and the Gen-Y for a lot of stuff. So have you guys played around with the Gen-Ys and gotten a feel for the main function differences, like the obvious differences, do you have an opinion between the two AJ: I have limited exposure to the Gen-Ys but we did look it up and go mess with them in the store for the inaudible 00:17:01. Kind of goes back to what I was saying earlier, just a lot more going on with the Gen-Y, they have the compartments in there, which was fine, I guess, for moving that ball a little bit easier. It also came with a pencil attachment that goes in there too, so it's set up to tow like that. So I guess that's what you're looking at with the more heavy-duty stuff. At least you have the accessories, so you can change that. I did like that part, but it looks like Gen-Y has that as well.I like the aspect of getting a ball mount and it being able to adapt with you. So you're never going to have the same trailer forever. You might get something else, you need a different trailer for it. You get those options of the pencil and a clevis, and you can even put a step on both of them, you can put on top of them. So I thought that was going to be the big difference, but turns out they have the same kind of accessories for it.Otherwise I think I'm done with the finish and I think those are a lot heavier too, aren't they Because they're just so much more to them. They have all the departments in there and stuff. Lindsey: Yeah. They're a lot heavier. They're also going to stick out a little bit further because they have the receivers built in. So the receivers are going to come a little bit further out and then the ball mount is going to come a little bit further out, because you have to put it in the receiver. So I think both of those things will have to take inaudible 00:18:12, you already have a huge truck that takes up however much space, you're going to be taking up even more space by leaving that ball mount in, which frankly I would do, because they're super, super heavy. AJ: Yeah. I don't want to take it in and out all the time, but on the same thing, I don't hit that shin on it every time I'm walking by either. But I guess it's so big, I should be seeing it when I'm walking around the back of the truck. And then if you take it out, you got to have someone to throw it in your truck too, when it's that big, I guess. It's a crosstalk 00:18:38. Lindsey: On the Gen-Ys, you could always, if you're afraid of having that extra space there or walking into it, you could always remove the little ball mount insert, at least. So you only have the channels sticking out. AJ: Yeah. Lindsey: Yeah, to your point, you're still going to inaudible 00:18:53 somewhere. AJ: I guess you can remove inaudible 00:18:56. Bob: inaudible 00:18:56not more. Because inaudible 00:19:00 able to lower their tailgate. AJ: You want us to lower our tailgate Bob: Yeah. inaudible 00:19:06 sticks out more, a lot of times you can't lower your tailgate because of the jack on the trailer, and if you get that extra two or three inches, usually then the tailgate will come down and you can lower it all the way down without hitting the jack. Lindsey: That makes sense. Bob: inaudible 00:19:28 tied to the truck, you aren't going to be able to lower your tailgate with the jack inaudible 00:19:31. Lindsey: I didn't think about that. That's something good for the Gen-Ys one. AJ: Yeah. Matt: I jumped in a little bit late on this meeting kid. What drop and rise did you say this product was Dave: Oh, there's a lot of different ones. This one in particular. AJ: This one. Dave: Yeah. I mean this one is a 4" rise and a 6" six inch drop or- AJ: inaudible 00:19:56 got it on top and bottom, but there's a bunch of different versions for all the different inaudible 00:20:01. Lindsey: I think we we're saying, was it the heavy-duty or the medium-duty goes up to a 16 and the- Dave: The inaudible 00:20:09, yeah. AJ: Yeah. Lindsey: . and then there's a 12 inch, I think is the maximum on the extreme-duty. I think that was- Dave: Yes. Matt: Gotcha. Lindsey: So pretty much anything you want, Matt AJ: Yeah. Matt: Well, I was actually looking at the, I think the 8 and the 10" drop of my truck depending on where I go with my truck in the next couple years because I tow, but I was also, I think Bob just mentioned it a little bit. I was curious how much room you have with the hitch you have in now with the tailgate down. Because there's times when I'll tow, but I need to put the tailgate down to get something out of the back of the truck. So I'm always curious how much space there is. Lindsey: be right on it Dave: This one- Lindsey: Ah. Dave: That's a better angle. Lindsey: Yeah. Dave: So even with that four inch rise, it still clears. Matt: Yeah. Lindsey: Yeah. And that's what's nice about the offset, you have even more, I mean, it's only 4" rise, but you have the drop built into, depending on what you're towing. Dave: Yap, right. So I think its safe to say with a hitch like this though, you're going to have a truck that's a little bit higher than this one. These types of inches are more for a lifted truck where you have to crosstalk 00:21:16 more so than often. Matt: And the gusto is pretty close to the bumper. It's not too close, is it Dave: I'd say it's got like inaudible 00:21:26. Matt: It's got a good metaclearance even when it's in the rise. That's good to see. AJ: They said it might interfere with rock tamers though. Matt: Yeah, that could be an accesory though. AJ: If we could put rock tamers around there, that might not be enough space for that inaudible 00:21:42. Bob: AJ, are there are two holes in the shank. AJ: Yes. Bob: So are you in the furthest out or the furthest in AJ: What was that bob Bob: What hole are you in right now What's that one that's in the truck crosstalk 00:22:01. Dave: Yeah, we use the one that's closest to the ball in all of them. So there's more of a shank in there. Lindsey: So if you back it out, will it still be working with inaudible 00:22:15 Dave: Yap. It'll give it a little bit more room. Matt: So that's the side inaudible 00:22:27. Dave: Yeah. Bob: inaudible 00:22:27 that stuff we we're talking about, except for maybe lowering the tailgate. Dave: Yeah, because inaudible 00:22:35 it was out there. Matt: So that gives you a lot more room AJ: The pin has two holes, well. Matt: inaudible 00:22:47 2-1/2. Dave: Yeah. So on this 2" hitch, both those holes are visible, but on Bob's hitch the 2-1/2", only the outside one was visible. So that's where you'd put the clip in there. Bob: I'm wondering why this inaudible 00:23:10 in the middle inaudible 00:23:11 lock on the end. Dave: Because we had to push the cylinder so hard just to get it locked, it was nice having that clip in there, so it didn't just push the pin out the other side. AJ: Yeah, inaudible 00:23:23 preety good to get that to snap into place. Dave: That, and there's less play back and forth now. So if you like kind of wiggle it back and forth, it's fine. Lindsey: Yeah. If it's for the 2 inaudible 00:23:35 that pin in a 2", it's just going to slide back and forth. Dave: Yeah. So that takes up that play. Bob: So can you open the tailgate again AJ Lindsey: Very carefully Dave: Yeah. You're going to hit the lid. Lindsey: Yeah. Bob: Won't bet my life on it, they're truck specific, I guess. Lindsey: Yeah. Dave: Well, it clears. inaudible 00:24:05 likes it. That's good. Speaker 4: So I guess one other question I have and I think I might have remembered when I was actually getting hands on with these when we first brought them on, is the actual hitch ball. Is that pretty easy to move up and down the channel Is it pretty heavy to keep standard or is it. AJ: Yeah, it moves very smoothly. inaudible 00:24:28 things like that, adjust them however you want, flip it over. Dave: Everything's very well machined. All the fitment and everything, we didn't have any problems with pins. We didn't have any problems with the channel. It was all really well put together. Bob: It's good to hear. Lindsey: Are these American made Dave: I believe so, yes. The Gen-Y hitch one is American made too. Lindsey: Yeah. I'm thinking about Maxx Tows and those guys that are, the traditional standard imports with the adjustable shank that yeah, like you said the machining isn't always the best on earth, the finish flakes off super easily, that kind of thing. But of course you don't have to pay nearly as much for it. AJ: It's true. Speaker 4: Anything else, anyone You guys have answered all my questions. It was great to see these get installed and we can see how they look. AJ: Yeah, they look really well. I was impressed by them, I like how it's kind of no thrills, just heavy-duty. I know if I had a trailer or something, I would definitely use it. Matt: Something you can count on. AJ: Yeah. Lindsey: Would you use this or would you, I shouldn't say would you use it, of course it's a nice product, I guess, would you pay for this product or would you probably pay for just the one that'll kind of get you by AJ: I guess that depends on what I'm towing and what I bought. Like right now, I don't have anything to tow, but if I did, I don't know, if I was using a whole bunch, I probably, I know better from working here that I should probably invest in something that's going to last rather than buy something that's just going to get me by for a little bit, you knowEspecially where I can customize it. So when I did buy something in a trailer and I'm like, all right, cool. I can tow with this, I'm getting used to that. Then I'm going to look forward to it, so I'm going to buy other stuff and then I can buy whatever accessory with this. I know I don't have to buy like ten different ball mounts and keep in the back of my truck. I can just buy this and have the accessories, that I can change on the fly when I need to. Lindsey: Yeah. Yeah. I guess I'm wondering like Matt, I know you've talked about the BulletProof and the Gen-Y and stuff, even a couple of years ago when we first started with them and you we're excited about them because you have a nice truck and you tell, I mean, are you the guy who you're going to invest in this kind of product Or are you the guy who they're really cool, I'd like to have it, but I'm just going to work with whatever I got. Matt: My personal opinion is I lean heavy towards the BulletProof more so than other brands mostly because of the construction. I like the aspect that they weld the balls in place, they're not removable. And if you look at the C channel and then all the brackets on the back of it, it's thick. I mean, it's heavy-duty and for somebody that tows often, but not every single day or every single week, I think it's an investment, to make sure that what you have there hooked to your trailer, is going to last. And a lot of people who have aftermarket lift kits, bigger tires and wheels and trucks, they can jump behind this product because there's such a array of different drops and rises. So I personally like them, if I we're more towing every week or multiple times a week, I might lean heavier towards another brand. But I like these a lot. Lindsey: What kind of brand would be better for towing all the time Are you looking at something that's easier to use or is there something that you know of that's just heavier duty. Matt: Yeah. See, the thing is I don't tow frequent enough to dance at 100%, but if I we're to tow every day, I think it would be, I'm trying to think of all the other brands that we carry, I would say. What was the other brand we mentioned earlier we're directly comparing this to Lindsey: I think the Gen-Y. Matt: Gen-Y, There you go. So Gen-Y in my opinion would be the leader if you're towing frequently, mostly because it supports a better ride, the components are there to make sure it's not a stiff, harsher ride. It moves with the trailer, less trailer sway, how it's built. Yeah. They're a little bit pricier, but I think you get what you pay for, with those kind of like BulletProof. You're paying for the heavy-duty aspect and you get what you pay for with anything like these types of products. Lindsey: So you're talking about like the Gen-Y's that have the built in torsion that are actually going to really help reduce the bouncing and swaying. Yeah, that makes sense. Matt: Yeah, because I would assume most people that are towing frequently are going to be towing at least three to 5,000 pounds regularly, maybe more depending on what your business is. But if you're towing heavy equipment or anything like that, and you still have a bumper pull type trailer, the Gen-Y would be the way to go in my mind. Lindsey: I'll buy into that. Speaker 4: Anything else anyone It's been a really good discussion. I think these products, it's great because we've had them on the site for a pretty good amount of time, but it's great seeing these installed the way you guys have done it. So we appreciate it. AJ: No problem. I guess, while Matt was talking, I was thinking if you we're to buy a trailer and you we're pulling it and you only have one trailer, would you still go with something versatile like this But if I only had like one boat trailer, would it be better for me to get something that was just specifically the exact riser drop I needed it for the vehicle I had at that time But I guess I would rather invest in something that can go onto my next vehicle, because eventually I'm going to upgrade to something else. But I wonder if there was any detriment to picking one that did have all these options or anything like that. Bob: Yeah. I think the average person who owns a trailer owns 2.5 trailers. So there you go, once you have one, you're probably going to end up with another one because, "Oh yeah, this is not as hard as I thought it was. It's not as big a deal as I thought it was. And now I need a trailer to do this or that." So then, that's where the adjustable ball mount comes in really handy. You're not trying to figure out which one's the right one every time and storing them in the truck. So they're handy when you do need them. Lindsey: I guess crosstalk 00:31:17. Speaker 4: Sorry, go ahead, Lindsey. Lindsey: I am probably going to say the same thing you are, but you're the actual truck owner. So you go for it. Speaker 4: What I was going to say is if you think about it too, a lot of people that tow frequently, normally if it's like a small business, you're going to have multiple vehicles. And if those hitch sizes are the same, you can just change out the ball mount to a different vehicle. And with one like this, where it's so adjustable, it can work with multiple vehicles depending on how high they ride or the load that they're carrying, et cetera, et cetera. So to me, it just gives you more options when you have the drop and rise like this one we're looking at. AJ: That does it for our look at the extreme BulletProof hitch ball mount. I hope this helped.

  • High Capacity Ball Mount Recommendation for Heavy Boat Trailer
    The highest capacity ball mount we offer is the BulletProof adjustable ball mount part # ED30OFFSET which has a 36,000 lb capacity when used with the 2-5/16 inch ball. This requires a 3 inch trailer hitch. If your trailer really weighs 18k it would seem pretty unlikely you have a 7,000 lb tongue weight since tongue weight is typically 10-15 percent of total trailer weight. Even our highest capacity pintle that has a 60k trailer weight capacity # 63016 only has a 6k tongue weight capacity.
