With good information from the website it was easy to order a Curt 2" Trailer Hitch, the Upgraded Circuit Protected Tail Light Converter Hardwire Kit w/ 4-Pole Connector and Circuit Tester - 119178KIT, Curt Ball Mount for 2" Hitches (3/4" Rise, 2" Drop - 10-1/4" Long - 7,500 lbs - D-4), Curt Pin and Clip Hitch Receiver - C21500, Rubber Tube Cover for 2" Trailer Hitch Receivers - I-728,Review, and 2" hitch ball 40038. Parts were delivered earlier than the initial estimate. Self installation (on a sloped drive way) took just under 2 hour. The fit of parts was very good, instructions and on-line video's were very helpful. My Kia did not have the wire plug in option, but the splice connections in the wire kit were easy to install. Most of the parts are hidden from view when the ball mount is not used.

I have a custom made tow guard. The ball mount I have was too short to allow me to attach the tow guard to my new truck. I searched the web and found just what I needed at etrailer.com. It's the only site I found that carried the size I needed. The product fits my needs perfectly. I can now protect my boat from rocks and other road debris when towing. Thank you etrailer.com.

I purchased this unit to extend the trailer jack handle just far enough that I could open the tailgate on my truck with the trailer attached. It worked perfect. I tow a pop-up camper with 2006 Toyota Tacoma. Pricing was good and delivery was quick from etrailer. At first I tried to buy locally from auto parts store or camper store, but neither had in stock anything the right dimensions. The unit from etrailer is made in the USA, fit just right, and was better quality than what I saw locally.

This is the 10th order I have made from etrailer.com, most of them with multiple items. I cannot say enough about what great experiences I have had with etrailer.com. The website is incredibly helpful, the search tools are great, and the specs, videos and other information are very helpful. The items always ship right away, and arrive well packaged and promptly - and for me they have to cross the border to Canada. I recommend this site to my friends with trailers and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a great experience - and who doesn’t!

I bought this ball mount to replace a shorter unit (8.5"-9") in order for the tailgate to clear the jack on one of my trailers when down. The first one that was delivered had a lot of damage to the powder coat finish due to rough shipping (UPS!). etrailer was very quick to send another out that arrived unscathed. Thanks again!

I have to back up a hill and around a corner with arthritis in my neck to park my boat. I installed a front trailer hitch on my suv and needed this longer shaft Ball Mount to keep the ball far enough away from my license plate and front bumber that I won't damage my vehicle. The unit fits the bill to a "T" and has already gotten compliments from others for its quality and stability. I look forward to fishing season so I can use it.

Top-notch product. Just completed a 1400 mile trip pulling a trailer with my Chevy Equinox and my etrailer hitch: issue free! That's the best

Having searched and not finding what I wanted or perhaps not really knowing what I wanted, I called and talked to Cathy. She was very helpful and knowledgeable. She checked and guided me to a longer shank which will give me a longer turning radius, as the tongue on my trailer is short and is a problem. The unit is a solid piece of equipment. I had a clevis pin from a 1 1/4" shank and thought I would use that and not order another and she advised me that the pin for a 2" shaft is larger and I needed a new one. She was so good and accommodating I even asked for her boss to commend her for her good work and pleasant personality. Jlw

I was throughly pleased with etrailers quick response and fast shipping.The ball mount I ordered was packaged well,and was good quality.I think I have found a good source for my towing-trailer needs.I'll admit there are not too many moving parts on a ball mount,but they got the job done and treated me right. Big thank you too everybody at etrailer, Billy Elkins

Well made heavy duty trailer hitch ball mount just what I needed so the tailgate would clear the jack stand

Great fast service. The new one I purchased is a 10-1/4" long. My original was 8-1/2". I have a travel trailer and had a heck of a time turning with the 8-1/2". The new 10-1/4" made all the difference. I can turn the trailer without any issues. It has the same rating as my 8-1/2" also. Works great.

I have a Toyota Tacoma pulling an A-Liner Expedition. Used a Ball and Ball mount from Wal-Mart last year. I upgraded to this and heavier rated Ball, and we noticed an immediate difference. E-Trailer staff, keep doing what you are doing. Your company and products have just earned a loyal customer. Thank You!!

Received quickly. Happy with unit. The extra length is helpful for backing the trailer into tight areas by keeping the trailer a little further from the truck bumper.

It is too large to slide into the 2" receiver. I may have to grind off some of the coating ti get it slide in and out easily. There was no pin with the hall mount so I will have to get one.

Fantastic quality. Much better finish on this unit than many other ones I seen for more money. Angled back end makes it easier to slide into the receiver..

Just recieved my order. Very fast delivery and well packaged. I will update one I have installed and used the items. I really enjoy the instructional videos. It makes life so much easier.

Ask the Experts about this CURT Trailer Hitch Ball Mount



  • Does Ball Mount Have To Place Trailer Ball Exactly Level
    You will want to choose a ball mount that will place the trailer ball at the appropriate level so that your trailer is towed level, or within 1-1/2 inches plus or minus either way. The ball mount you reference, # D-4, has a rise of 3/4 inch so it should work well for your application. I have included a FAQ article on choosing the correct ball mount for you to check out.

  • Correct Ball Mount for 2002 Ford Explorer Towing Trailer with 20 Inch Coupler Height
    Based on those measurements you would need a ball mount with a 1/2 inch drop, but because a ball mount with that drop is not available, you will need to choose one that gets you as close as possible. As long as the ball and the coupler are within 1-1/2 to 2 inches of level, you would certainly be close enough. Given the choice, it is better to have the ball a bit higher than the coupler. If you were to use the # 2923 ballmount in the rise position, your hitch ball height would be 1-1/4...

  • Can a 4 Inch Bumper Strip be Used in Place of One that Sticks Out 3 Inches
    The Pre-drilled round rubber bumper # D4-96 is going to stick out a little further than the old bumper you have but it will still work. The length would have to be trimmed down since the new one is 96 inches. The mounting holes are spaced 11 inches apart on center on the new one as well so it will work on your trailer.

  • Will Pre-Drilled Round Rubber Bumpers D4-96 Replace Bumper with More Holes
    If the distance you have between the mounting holes on your horse trailer bumper is 11 inches the part # D4-96 is going to match up and work well. If it has more mounting holes that wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing. It would just overhang a bit. Or you could trim it down.

  • Is Rubber Bumper D4-96 a Round or Square Style of Bumper
    What you see in the attached picture is what you'd get if you ordered the Pre-Drilled Rubber Bumper part # D4-96 that you referenced. It has an odd shape that doesn't completely match the description of round or square, but the picture shows what it actually is.

    I can understand not wanting to drill holes in the bumper, but the Pre-Drilled Round Rubber Trailer Bumper - 96" Long x 2-1/16" Wide # D4-96 measures 11 inches on center between the bolt holes, there isn't anything that can be done that wouldn't require you to drill new holes in this bumper to match your 12 inch on center measurement.

  • Can Pre-Drilled Round Rubber Trailer Bumper # D4-96 be Installed Directly on a Trailer
    Yes. I don't see any reason why you couldn't use Pre-Drilled Round Rubber Trailer Bumper # D4-96 on your trailer. Assuming that the length at 96 inches and the height at 4 inches will work with the available space you have of course.

    The Rubber Trailer Bumper, # D4-96 comes from the manufacturer with recommended guidelines for best fitment their product. If you choose to alter the installation from recommended that is your choice, but it may not hold up the way it was designed with the improper hardware.

  • Can the Pre-Drilled Round Rubber Bumpers # D3-96 be Trimmed Down
    Yes, the Pre-Drilled Round Rubber Bumpers # D3-96 that you referenced can easily be trimmed down to length so that it would fit your application. After going out into the warehouse and looking at the bumper I would recommend either using a utility knife to very carefully cut it, or securing the rubber tightly and using a sawz-all to make the cut.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for Use with a Draw-Tite # 75673 on a 2010 Subaru Outback Wagon
    There is not a required ball mount for this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 75673. Since you are worried about clearance I would recommend you use a Trailer Hitch Ball Mount, part # D-4. This ball mount has a distance of 10-1/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the ball hole. You would have plenty of clearance to run this ball mount in the rise position. I attached installation instructions below as well as a review video of this hitch for you to check out.

  • How Long is CURT Ball Mount # D-4 Versus a Standard Length Ball Mount
    The ball mount is 10-1/4 inches long from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of ball hole, approximately 2 inches longer than what most consider as a standard length. If you are looking for something that is very long, take a look at # 80232, which is 16 inches long from hitch pin hole center to ball hole center. Or, if you need a specific length, I have included a link to our ball mount main page for you. I have also included a link to our ball mount FAQ.

  • Hitch Ball Recommendation for Curt D-4 Trailer Hitch Ball Mount
    You will need a ball that matches your trailer coupler. The required ball size should be stamped into the top of the coupler. For a 1-7/8 inch ball you will want hitch ball # 19261. For a 2 inch ball you will want # 63849. For a 2-5/16 inch ball you will want # C40007. I have included a FAQ article on choosing hitch balls for you to check out.

  • Does Covercraft Sunbrella Custom-Fit Outdoor Vehicle Cover # C15944D4 Have License Plate Panel
    The Covercraft Sunbrella Custom-Fit Outdoor Vehicle Cover # C15944D4 that you referenced does not have a license plate panel. This is helpful if the vehicle has expired tags as that would be concealed and in general that's enough to prevent getting hassled for having a "derelict" vehicle with expired tags. I was in a situation where I had a car with expired tags that was getting ticketed because of that although it was just parked in my driveway. Putting a cover on the car was enough to...

  • How Long with Covercraft Sunbrella Custom-Fit Outdoor Vehicle Cover Last?
    The Covercraft Sunbrella Custom-Fit Outdoor Vehicle Cover - Cadet Gray # C17279D4 is a confirmed fit for 2010 - 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedans and comes with a 5 year warranty from the manufacturer. Because seasons vary, you may or may not get more life out of the cover. The fabric is extremely resistant to fading and has a minimum loss of strength from prolonged exposure to heat, moisture, and UV rays. I don't have further specifics for you vehicle location.

  • Can Custom Holes be Drilled Into a Redline Pre-Drilled Round Rubber Bumper
    Since the Redline Pre-Drilled Round Bumpers, part # D3-96, part # D2-96, and part # D4-96, are made of rubber I see no reason why you cannot drill out mounting holes so that they are custom to your hole patterns. If you will be using the full 96 inches of the bumpers then you may want to consider drilling more mounting holes in your trailer so that the bumper has more support. I recommend drilling out holes to match the rest of the pre-drilled holes to avoid more drilling. Keep in mind...

  • Recommended Trailer Bumper Replacement
    We only sell trailer bumpers in 96 inch lengths, but they can be cut to size. We have a 4 inch option # D4-96, a 2-1/16 inch option # D2-96, and a 3 inch option # D3-96. The holes are 11 inches apart and have a 1-1/4 inch diameter

  • Replacement for 84 Inch Bumper on Horse Trailer
    All of our bumper strips are 96" long and have the holes pre-drilled out at 11" on center, but the nice thing is these can be cut and re-drilled to accommodate your application. You just need to choose which one has the width you're looking for: 2-1/16" Width - # D2-96 3" Width - # D3-96 4" Width - # D4-96 So these will definitely work, you'll just need to do some modification to make it work.

  • How to Get a Ball Mount with 0 inches of Rise or Drop
    In order to get a ball mount that has effectively 0 inches of rise or drop you would need to get a Trailer Hitch Ball Mount, part # D-4, like the one you referenced that has a 2 inch drop, and then use a 2 Inch High Rise Ball, part # C40034.

It measures 8-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. It has a 6,000-lb gross towing weight capacity and a 600-lb tongue weight capacity.

  • Ball Mount With No Rise or Drop for 2019 Toyota Tacoma With 2 Inch Hitch
    Since the Hidden Hitch Ball Mount # 80232 with a 3/4" rise is too much it sounds like you need a ball mount with no rise or drop. For that the best option is a fixed ball mount with the hitch balls attached, the Curt Multi-Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # C45650. This ball mount will have no drop or rise and give you a 1-7/8", 2" or 2-5/16" hitch ball. I have added a link to a video review for you to check out as well.

  • Will I have to Reduce the Weight Capacity on My Receiver If using an Extended Ball Mount?
    Using a ball mount like the Brophy # BH20 that is 13-1/4" long compared to a more standard Curt # D-4 that is 10-1/4" long, will not reduce the maximum tongue weight allowed on your receiver. It is important to be sure to not exceed the weight ratings on either your receiver, the ball mount or the hitch ball. As all 3 of these will have their own maximum weight ratings be sure to never exceed the lowest rating of all the components. You will only need to look at reducing weight when you...

The recommended ball mount for the hitch and vehicle is # 2923 and it measures 8-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole.
