This adjustable ball mount has a maximum capacity of 22,000 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 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.

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.

Perfect fit for my RAM 3500. I bent a cheap import hitch mount towing my buddies ocean boat. This hitch is a beast. I like it.

The adjustability of this hitch is awesome! I would highly recommend this hitch to anybody who is looking for a strong adjustable hitch.

Why am I a repeat buyer using etrailer.com? Fair (if not the best) price, excellent customer service, on-time delivery, quality products. Can't ask for more!

BulletProof is an apt description, this hitch is a beast! Fast shipping and great customer service. This is one part of a larger order - when the second part was delayed they notified me in advance and allowed me to have the available product shipped separately - wish more vendors would be that proactive. Just received the hitch yesterday, picking up a trailer this week and I have no doubt the hitch will handle the load with ease.

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.

The hitch was delivered as promised in prestine condition due to the extraordinary packaging. As soon as the package was open I knew I had made the right choice in purchasing the Bullet Proof hitch. The machined parts, coupled with quality welding, make for a superior product. I would certainly recommend this hitch to anyone interested in purchasing a quality product.

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.

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.

Review from a similar Bullet Proof Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Needed a high quality hitch to haul my new demco Kar Kaddy 2, also an etrailer purchase, that I could adjust to get just the right height with my Rv or suv. This hitch fits the bill. I installed it with the adjustment portion up to accomplish my lack of heights. I also included a photo of the demco Kar Kaddy SS and the rhino racks I got from you. I’m all set to travel now.

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.

Review from a similar Bullet Proof Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


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.

Review from a similar Bullet Proof Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


This hitch ball mount is a beast for sure. It has a nice appearance and a lot of weight. i do not see it letting me down at anytime. i also think that spacers could be provided to eliminate excess play. The web site is greatand was very helpfull. However, once ordered i thought the etrailer logistics, in house tracking process was a little misleading, if i see it is packaged not sure why it did not ship until 2 days later. of course, i am not on the ground not seeing everything going on might change my mind about the last comment. Thanks

This hitch is Stout! It looks like it’s the last hitch that I’ll ever buy. Always happy doing business with etrailer, fast shipping and great communication throughout the transaction.


Comments
The hitch is still working perfectly! I regularly haul up to 17k and this hitch gives me plenty of confidence. Carful lifting the 12” because you might blow your back out, it’s gotta weigh around 80 pounds.

Review from a similar Bullet Proof Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


The hitch is amazing. If you want to continue using safety chains you will have to run chains to the receiver above the ball then to the trailer chains. I modified mine and it works. Or just don't attach the chains properly. The regular set up for the chains probably wont work because the receiver hangs down so low. This is nothing negative against the receiver. With a drop like this it was to be expected.

Review from a similar Bullet Proof Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


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!
