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 14,000 lbs, making it perfect for heavy-duty towing jobs.

MD256 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.

MD256 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 medium shank

The steel shank easily slides 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 - MD256

Today, we'll be taking a look at the bulletproof hitches adjustable two-ball mount. This is going to provide us with a very sturdy connection point between our towing truck and our trailer. The bulletproof hitches are all made with a very robust design, has a nice thick gusset at the back to provide support to our channel and all the welds going around the shank, the gusset and our ball platform are nice and thick and very cleanly done.We know it's going to be a very secure hitch or a very secure ball mount on our truck. It's made of a durable steel construction with a nice hammer or texturized black powder coat finish, so it's going to help to resist rust and corrosion. The two pins that secure our ball mount in place on the channel are made of a hardened, heat-treated steel, so these should be well up to the task of towing.It does not come with a hitch pin and clip or a lock, so you will have to purchase that separately. This is going to be the medium-duty ball mount style, so it has that hollow shank.

It makes it a little bit lighter, but still very durable. This ball mount has a six-inch drop or rise, now that measurement you can find for your application if you measure the inside, top edge of your receiver tube down to the ground and measure the top of your coupler down to the ground and then, do some math in between the two.If your truck is higher than your trailer, then you need a drop. If your trailer is higher than your truck, then you need a rise. And you want to make sure you do that whenever your truck is level and also, your trailer is level and sitting on level ground. That way, everything is running in line and you have a good connection point between the two, you don't have any bottoming out or angling up, which can just cause issues when you're going down the road.So, by having our adjustable ball mount, we'll be able to get that dialed in whether we're using different vehicles, maybe different trailers, we'll have our two different size balls here to get that connected to our different couplers.

We'll have our larger 2 5/16-inch ball as well as our smaller 2-inch ball. The shank is designed for 2.5-inch by 2.5-inch trailer receivers, so this is going to work out well for that.Has kind of a beveled edge there to help get your shank installed into the hitch receiver. Now, the overall height of our ball mount is 12 inches, so turn that the other way. Twelve inches from the top of the channel to the bottom and then, the distance between our holes here is two inches, so we can adjust that height in two-inch increments. We'll have five levels of adjustment, so we can get that dialed in for our truck and trailer.The distance from the center of the ball to our hitch-pin holes for the nearest on, it's about 11.5 inches, for the further one it's about 13 inches, and that's again, going from the center of the ball to the center of the hitch-pin hole.

Those are both going to use a standard hitch pin for that 2.5-inch shank, so that'll be your 5/8-inch hitch pin. Those are sold separately here at etrailer.com or you can also get a lock, anti-rattle device, any number of accessories.Our gross towing weight for the two-inch ball is 10,000 pounds. For the 2 5/16-inch ball, it's 14,000 pounds. The tongue weight capacity for both of those is 2,000 pounds. The ball mount overall weighs 29 pounds and this is covered by a limited lifetime warranty from Bulletproof Hitches and this product is made in the USA.Overall, I think this is going to be a very nice-looking, very durable ball mount for your vehicle.

And it should last for a good, long time. And that's going to do it for our look at the Bulletproof Hitches adjustable two-ball mount.
