Heavy-Duty Construction

Because of its sturdy steel construction, this BulletProof Hitches adjustable ball mount can handle loads up to 22,000 lbs, making it perfect for heavy-duty towing jobs.

HD256 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.

HD256 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 2.5 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 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" 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 Review of BulletProof Hitches Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - HD256

Today we'll be taking a look at the BulletProof Hitches Adjustable 2-Ball Mount.This is going to be the connection point between your towing vehicle and your trailer. We have our adjustable ball platform here so we can get it mounted up to multiple different vehicles, multiple trailers. We'll have our 2-5/16" ball and a 2" ball so that we can have a more versatile ball mount from one system. This shank is a solid steel shank with a 2-1/2" by 2-1/2" design, and that's going to fit in your 2-1/2" by 2-1/2" hitches.The nicest thing about this ball mount is that it's going to be a very well-built and rugged ball mount. You'll see we'll have these nice thick welds going all the way around, a nice thick gusset going down in between, or going between our shank and the channel to provide some extra support and stability. It's welded all the way around, as you can see there.

And that's going to be the same story for the ball platform as well.This is going to give us 6" of drop or rise. As you can see it here, it's in the drop position, and that measurement is going to go from the top of the ball platform to the inside top edge of the receiver tube, so you'll want to match that up with your trailer as best as you can to get your truck and trailer level with each other.Whenever you're measuring for the distance between the ground . or, the distance for your trailer, you'll want to get it as level as possible, and measure from the ground to the inside top edge of the . from the ground to the inside top edge of the coupler, and then you'll measure from the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube on your truck. Do the math, and if your truck is higher than your trailer, then you'll need a drop.

If your trailer's higher than your truck, then you'll need a rise. If we flip this over, that's going to give us our rise position. As it is now, it's going to be in the drop.Our adjustment is . We'll have four adjustments. Those are going to be 2" apart, so we'll go in 2" increments, four levels of adjustment.

We'll also have our two hardened steel pins to attach the ball mount in place. There's just a clip on the other side. Pull that and then pull out the pin, and then we can move our platform along that channel until we get it to the right height that we need, or if we need to flip it over and use the other ball, you can do that there.As I said, the distance between those holes is 2", so that 2" of adjustment. The overall height of the ball mount is 11-3/4". The distance of our hitch pin holes to the center of the ball platform, so we can make any adjustment in or out to allow for clearance, from the center of the ball platform to the nearest hitch pin hole, it's 11-1/2".

Then to the furthest hole, it's about 13".The gross towing weight for our 2" ball is 12,000 pounds. For the 2-5/16" ball, it's 22,000 pounds. The tongue weight for both of those is 3,000 pounds. Overall this product weighs 48 pounds, so it's going to be pretty heavy. It comes with a limited lifetime warranty and it is made in the U.S.A. Overall, I think this is a really nice system. It should last for a good long time, and be very sturdy for any of your needs.That's going to do it for our look at the BulletProof Hitches Adjustable 2-Ball Mount with the 6" drop or rise.

From the moment you open the box you realize you purchased a quality product. The packaging alone tells you that. This is a HEAVY DUTY hitch that can handle anything you ask it to do. This is the most versatile hitch you can buy. There are so many accessories for it that assures that this is the last hitch you will ever have to buy. Yes, you do pay a premium price for it, but I have no regrets. It is good insurance knowing you have a hitch that is “bulletproof “ and isn’t a weak point while towing your $50,000 skid loader. 784474

Been using a different adjustable hitch for 13 years. It is no were as massive as this. My towing needs have changed and I needed a hitch thatcan handle the heavier loads. This does with no problems. What a deal to get almost double the weight capabilities for $30.00. I am a big fan. 783915

Originally ordered the medium duty along with a couple other items for a 2500 Ram. Ended up returning for the pure reason of I didn't notice the pintal attachment also sold by bulletproof doesn't fit the medium duty hitches(my fault for not doing enough research). Both hitches look awesome and are very heavy duty. Powder coating seems to be holding up great. All in all very happy with purchase. That being said about the product I can't begin to express how impressed I am by etrailer. For the return I sent them an email and within 30 minutes had an actual person call me to help with the return and the ordering of the replacement heavy duty hitch. Shipping is always fast (between the tires I ordered last year, the hitch the first time, and the replacement for the return). The customer service alone will be the reason I don't buy anything that I can get here from a different site. 754832
