Note: Ford OEM hitches have a tighter/different radius on their 2-1/2 inch receiver tubes. To accommodate the OEM Ford 2-1/2 inch hitch, the corners of a ball mount, shank or reducer sleeve may need to be sanded down to slide into the hitch. Do not remove any more material than necessary. Simply removing the paint or powder-coat is often sufficient. Never use a grinder to knock-down the corners, which may remove too much material and will also heat the accessory and could compromise the product's structural integrity. This is especially the case with cast accessories like larger weight distribution shanks.

Video Transcript for Reese Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - 45325 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Reese tri-ball mount for 2-1/2" hitches, part number 45325. This tri-ball mount includes three different-size hitch balls on a hollow square shank. It allows you to tow trailers with different coupler sizes. It has a durable hollow steel contraction featuring a black powder-coat finish. And to switch ball sizes, all you would need to do is just remove it from your hitch receiver and flip it to whichever ball you want to use. This is the 2-5/16" ball, this is the 2" ball, and this is the 1-7/8" ball.

And again, just like any other ball mount, you would slide it into your receiver, match up the holes, and then you would take your pin and clip. Now this pin and clip is not included with this ball mount; however, you can get it right here at, part number PC3. Once you have the holes lined up, just slide that in there and clip it off, and you're good to go. Now, if you wanted to use one of the smaller hitch balls, just unclip that. So you want to use the 2" ball, flip it over to this side, slide that in, and then you would put the pin in, clip that off, and now you have a 2" hitch ball.

For further security, we also have a line of hitch locks right here at Taking a look at some of the dimensions and specs for this ball mount. Once again, this does fit 2-1/2" trailer hitch receivers. The towing capacity for the 1-7/8" ball is 2,000 lbs., for the 2" ball is 10,000 lbs., and the towing capacity for the 2-5/16" ball is 14,000 lbs. Tongue weight for each: tongue weight for 1-7/8" ball, 200 lbs.; 2" ball, 1,000 lbs.; 2-5/16" ball, 1,400 lbs.

of tongue weight capacity. Taking a look at some lengths. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the 2-5/16" ball is 7-1/2". The center of the hitch pin hole to either the 1-7/8" ball and the 2" ball is 8-1/2". Also, there is no drop or rise with this item.

As you can see, it is completely even from the hitch receiver. And finally, there is a limited lifetime warranty for this ball mount. That should do it for our Reese tri-ball mount for 2-1/2" hitches, part number 45325.

My newer Chevy K3500 has a 2 1/2 inch square receiver so I was able too get rid of my 2" ball mount that was almost too heavy to lift and replace it with a new Reese tri- ball mount with a 14,000 lb Gross towing capacity and weighs less than 12 pounds.
Thanks to Cathy H. and Chris W. at for finding the right equipment for my needs.

Showed in stock when purchased, it was not in stock, and I am now waiting for a ship date to be determined.


The hitch fit my 2006 Ford F550 perfectly. I have a commercial receiver and the drawbar slid in with no issues. Nice and tight with no rattle. I have a variety of trailers with different ball sizes and there have been no issues using any of the ball sizes on the hitch. Along with the pin and clip that I ordered, the assembly makes a nice convenient package for my towing needs. Service was fast and the representatives were very helpful. I would recommend this for anyone having a 2 1/2 inch receiver and the need of multiple trailer ball sizes.


Great product that fit my class v receiver hitch exactly. Great look on my 2017 Ram 3500.



All etrailer products are great and still in service, very durable and good value


I LIKE IT! Instructions indicated that if using in a FORD receiver that some paint removal and perhaps a bit of grinding may be required. That is true. I periodically grease the shaft and a bit of persuasion is required to install and remove it as it is quite snug. Snug suits me just fine as there is No rattling ,AND.. nobody without a bar or hammer is going to steal it. I use this on my FORD 350 diesel and pull 14,000 lbs regularly.


Despite some of the conflicting reports on here about the Reese Tri-ball Titan Hitch fitting 2011 and up Super Dutys I took a gamble and it payed off. It fits my 2012 Super Duty with no issue. I didn't have to grind the corners or take the sticker off or remove any paint. Thanks for the great customer service and answering my questions.



Thanks for this review helped me as I too have a 2012 F250 super duty


The newer 2.5" mounts are hard to come by and can be quite expensive if you go to Vehicle Manufacturer or Auto Parts sites. etrailer had just what I needed and at a price similar to those for the mounts made for smaller receivers. What's not to like?


Great Looking Hitch for my Chevy Diesel! Can't wait to see how well it pulls our camper this Spring! Ordered by phone. Salesperson was very friendly and knowledgeble. Very fast shipping around Christmas. Will definitely order from your company again! Thanks!

Jeff E.


Still pulling camper perfectly! No complaints at all!


Just as described. Quality. This is a back up hitch for me. Used it once. serves the purpose. etrailer had this in stock and got it to me quickly. I was surprised how hard it was to find one like this (straight) I couldn't find one in stores.





Couldn't believe product was actually manufactured by Reese. I had to bevel the leading edge with a bench grinder, grease both the the receiver and hitch, then drive it in with a 5 pound sledge. Then the pin holes didn't align properly to the receiver. When one hole was aligned, the one on the opposite side was off slightly in a vertical plane. So I also had to drive the pin in with the sledge. When I remove it, a similar process will be required. My vehicle is a 2013 F250 and another class 5 hitch I have fits perfectly.


Ordered 3 different hitched, each was exactly as described.
Excellent quality. Ordered arrived very quickly.
Will use etrailer again.



No problems, happy with the pirchase.


Upgraded my truck which now has a 2.5" receiver instead of 2" receiver. Works great. Not sure I need tri-ball anymore. See no 1 7/8" balls, and very few 2" balls. But still some horse trailers with 2" balls. Also needed to buy a longers pin for the @.5" receiver.


I recently upgraded from a 2005 to a 2011 GMC 2500HD and found out that the receiver for this year is 2.5 inches. I found this Reese Tri-Mount on etrailer for the right price and it arrived after only 2 business days. I haven't towed with it yet but the fit and finish is top notch and the height is perfect. My truck still has the stock 265/70 17s. I also purchased the extra long receiver Deadbolt hitch pin that locks. It fits perfect and I now don't have to worry about someone stealing the hitch. Customer service at etrailer is the best of any online retailer that I have purchased from, very impressive.


Fits up good, and look like a tough piece. I like that I only have to carry one piece for all the trailers too!

Mark F.


As mentioned, the piece fits all my ttrailers - works great!


The triball hitch will do fine destroying the grill and radiator of tailgating vehicles.


Purchased ball mount and realized it would not fit a Ford Factory Super Duty Hitch after the fact. I was told that Ford Manufactured their 2-1/2" receivers a bit smaller than standard.
I then purchased a Reese Titan Class V hitch and replaced the Ford factory hitch. The tri ball mount will not fit the Reese Titan receiver either.

I then purchased a Reese Titan Class V hitch and replaced the Ford factory hitch. The tri ball mount will not fit the Reese Titan receiver either." />


Ordered this Reese Tri-Ball Mount for 2-1/2" Hitches - 1-7/8", 2", 2-5/16" Balls - Black - 45325, its perfect, ordered one day, received it the next. This is a great place to purchase necessary towing pieces. Great price, excellent service. Thank you!


really like that it fits in the receiver without having to have a reducer sleeve. seems to be made with high quality. looks as if it will last for a long time


Ordered the 14K Reese Tri-Ball Mount online and received exactly what was ordered in a timely manor. Note for those who read the reviews as i do to help determine what to order, the 2-1/2" Reese Mount fit my 2015 Ford receiver perfect.


I know i read alot of the reveiws before buying this receiver. Every one said that would not fit ford factory installed hitch. I measured and it does fit my 2012 f 350. Great hitch


Love the hitch. Ordered it and it was on our door step quickly.
Am extremely satisfied.

Barb B.


Great. Good quality


The Product is exactly what I ordered and needed. The Customer Service at etrailer is amazing! I placed my order on-line which was fast and easy, and received a confirmation within 1 minute of placing the order. I messed up on my order and called etriler right away. They fixed my mess-up right away, and I received exactly what I wanted and needed in less than a week. I'm very happy with etrailer as a whole and I will use them in the future! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND etrailer to anyone. 100% Satisfied Customer!!!


Great product from a great vendor. I had the hitch within a day or two of ordering. I am very pleased. I also ordered the extra long locking pin which I am very happy with.


Etrailer exceeded my expectations! I was expecting at least a week to get my new triple ball hitch and they upgraded my shipping and I had it in two days! I will definitely be doing business with them again!


Let me start off by saying I have nver left a review about anything. However, it would be a disgrace not to leave a review for Etrailer... This is the best company I have ever dealt with in my life!! They go above and beyond on all facets of business. I will be ordering all of my trailer needs from them moving forward. AWESOME COMPANY!!!

  • Hitch Ball Recommendation for a 2019 Jayco Jay Flight SLX 8 264BH
    I spoke with someone at Jayco who said that most of the 2019 Jay Flight SLX 8 264BH travel trailers have a coupler that matches a 2-5/16" hitch ball but since there can be some variances she couldn't guarantee that's what your travel trailer has. If you already own the travel trailer then the coupler size should be stamped on the coupler itself. Otherwise the only other way to pinpoint the size hitch ball you need is to contact the seller. We do have interchangeable ball mount sets like...

  • How to Determine Correct Trailer Hitch Ball
    To determine the correct hitch ball you need to know what size ball your trailer's coupler will accept, though for a 13,000 lb trailer I am virtually certain it will be a 2-5/16" hitch ball. Along with the correct capacity and diameter of the actual hitch ball, you also need to know the diameter of the shank that your ball mount accepts and the thickness of your ball mount platform. This is needed because the hitch ball needs to fit in the ball mount hole (the shank and hole should have...

  • Why is the Curt Tri-Ball Mount # C42KR Hard to Fit in Factory Ford Hitch
    The issue you are running into is that the Ford 2-1/2 inch hitches have unpredictable radiuses on the corners of the hitch opening. It's only on their 2-1/2 inch hitches, but the corners of the hitch opening on some factory Ford hitches end up so round that square shank accessories don't like to easily fit. The solution is to try and remove the powder coat on the shank of the accessory to allow it to install easier. We thought they had gotten better with their more recent 2-1/2 inch hitches...

  • Why Do Ford 2-1/2 inch Hitches Have Fit Issues with Aftermarket Hitch Accessories
    For whatever reason the Ford 2-1/2 inch receiver hitches have round corners that do not allow most aftermarket hitch accessories to work. Since you said your hitch is 100 percent custom I do not believe this will be a problem for you since this issue is isolated to only Ford hitches. The Curt Multi-Ball Mount # C42KR should work well for you, I attached a review for this product for you to check out also.

  • What Size Hitch Ball Does Coupler of 2011 Forest River Roo 21SS Take
    I did some checking and it looks like your 2011 Forest River Roo 21SS has a coupler on it designed for a 2 inch ball. That said, someone could have replaced the coupler with a different size as that's not uncommon so what you can do is go out and look at the coupler on your trailer and you'll see the size stamped on it. The Reese Tri-Ball part # C42KR that you referenced has these two sizes plus a 1-7/8 inch ball.

    The overall diameter of a 255/70R22.5 tire/wheel is 36-1/2-inches. The closest color we have to beige or tan would be the off-white Camco cover part # CAM45335 which will fit and work well.

  • Trouble Uncoupling Trailer From Tow Vehicle
    Generally speaking, most people will uncouple the trailer before they extend the stabilizer jacks so that is what I recommend first. That said, if you are having trouble getting the trailer high enough to release the hitch ball from the coupler then you would just need to use a stand of some sort like the Valterra Trailer Jack Stand part # A10-0900 which offers another 8" or so of lift. If the trailer lifts the hitch ball on the vehicle when you raise it then you may need to jump up and...

  • How To Determine Ball Mount and Ball Size To Tow 2003 Thor Citation
    The size of the ball that you need to tow your 2003 Thor Citation Travel Trailer is determined by what size coupler is on the trailer. More than likely you will need a 2" or 2-5/16" ball. The required ball size should be stamped onto the coupler. Another thing to take into consideration is the rise or drop that may be needed to tow the travel trailer level with your vehicle.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 2013 Ram 4x4 and 11,160 lb Trailer
    For your travel trailer, I recommend using the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution with Sway Control # RP66075. This system is designed for towing a trailer of that size to help with total tongue weight which includes the loaded trailer tongue as well as any cargo behind the rear axle of your Ram truck. This system will work very well for you to keep that long trailer in line with your truck. For a shank you will need either the Reese Titan Weight Dist Shank - 1-1/4" Drop # RP54976...

    I looked up your 2014 Jayco Eagle 314TSBH and it has an unloaded tongue weight of 906 lbs so you'd want a higher capacity weight distribution than a 1,000 lb tongue weight setup. Also when it's unloaded the trailer weighs right at 8,000 lbs and can weight up to 10,750 lbs when full loaded so you'd be looking at a tongue weight of most likely around 1,100 lbs or more. Ideally the trailer's tongue weight falls right into the middle of the range of the system. So for that the Reese Steadi...

  • Hitch Ball Needed to Tow a 2015 Jayco Jay Flight 19RD
    I was able to look up a manual online for your 2015 Jayco Jay Flight 19RD and it said (on page 3-7) that depending on your model your coupler will either need a 2" or a 2-5/16" hitch ball. I recommend using a multi hitch ball like the straight # C42KR or the adjustable # BWTS10049B. Both of these include a 1-7/8", 2", and a 2-5/16" hitch ball which will come in handy for various towing applications. You also need a hitch pin & clip # PC3 or a locking hitch pin like part # 63232 to secure...
