  • Will Curt 8" Hitch Extender Work With Towing 3500lb Boat With 2020 Ford Expedition?
    Thank you for your business! The Curt Hitch Extender for 2" Hitch Receivers - 8" Long # C45791 you purchased has a maximum tongue weight rating of 350lbs, and a maximum trailer weight rating of 3500lbs, but also reduces the capacities of the trailer hitch receiver installed on your 2020 Ford Expedition by 50%. As long as your trailer hitch receiver has a 7000lb or higher towing capacity, and your boat trailer does not exceed 350lbs tongue weight or 3500lbs trailer weight you will not...

  • Trailer Wiring and Weight Distribution Ball for a 1993 Dodge W350
    For your 1993 Dodge W350 you can use Curt trailer wiring harness # C55317. It plugs in line with the truck tail light wiring. But if you are concerned about overloading the truck wiring I recommend a hardwire, powered harness # 119147KIT. This will draw power for the trailer lights directly from the truck battery. Then to add a 7-Way you will need # ETBC7. I have included some links that show and explain the # ETBC7 installation. The links also explain how a brake controller will be installed....

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2006 GMC Savana 3500
    We sure do! I recommend the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Matte Black Finish - Class IV - 2" # e98861 which is confirmed to fit your 2006 GMC Savana 3500 as long as it is not a cab and chassis model. The # e98861 has a 1000lb tongue weight rating and 10000lb trailer weight rating which gets bumped up to 1200lb tongue weight and 12000lb trailer weight making it a perfect option for towing a trailer, and carrying a bike rack or cargo carrier. If you are planning on towing...

  • Availability of Hitch Ball Welded to Ball Mount
    We actually have exactly what you are looking for - no modification needed! I have attached a link to our selection of ball mounts that have 1 hitch ball included, like the Curt # C45154 rated for 7,500 lbs. You can filter through the options to find the correct ball mount for you application. If you would rather have a completely powder coated option with multiple hitch balls I recommend using the B&W Triple Tow Tri-Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # BWBMTT31004. This features 3 hitch balls...

  • Recommendation of A-Frame Trailer Coupler for use with TJDA-5000S
    I do have a couple solutions for you but the Square A-Frame Jack # TJDA-5000S is not compatible with the round jack mounting hole on the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DM14793-52. For a trailer coupler that features a standard 2-1/4 by 2-1/4 inch square jack mounting hole you can use A-Frame Trailer Coupler w/ Square Jack Hole # CA-5280-QB. This jack uses a 2-5/16 inch ball and has a capacity of 15,000 lbs and is fully compatible with # TJDA-5000S. A 2 inch version is not available so...
