Video Transcript for Review of Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - 63836

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at Today, we're gonna take a look at this Draw-Tite 2 5/16 diameter chrome hitch ball, has a 14,000 pound weight capacity. Now, this hitch ball provides a connection point for your trailer's coupler. They do use the fine threads on this to provide an exceptionally tight, strong grip, and it is a durable steel construction. You can see it has a nice corrosion resistant chrome finish to it, and also, if you noticed, the flat sides here, these are built-in wrench flats that make it very easy to hold the ball in place while you're torquing the nut down. Does include the lock washer and the nut, it's all included.

Basically, when you go to install this, you'll put on your lock washer, put on your nut, and then torque it down to the correct specs. Again, the ball diameter is 2 5/16 inches, which is stamped on the top. The weight capacity is 14,000 pounds, which again is stamped on the top. Give you a few dimensions on this, we're gonna measure the shank. Now, this is designed to fit ball mount platforms that are 3/4 of an inch to 1 1/4 inch thick.

So the shank length is gonna be right at 2 3/4 quarter inches long, and the shank diameter is right at 1 1/4 inches. But that should do it for the review on this Draw-Tite 2 5/16 inch chrome hitch ball with the 14,000 pound capacity..

It's a hitch ball and does the job. Nothing glamorous to report. Retired the previous hitch ball due to its age (25 years).

Herb P.


Its doing fine, expect many years of service


Well made, works like it should


The hitch ball is exactly what I was looking for. It has the wrench flats I wanted to be able to keep the ball from rotating while tightening or loosening the ball. It also has a gross tow rating of 14,000 lbs which was on the higher end of hitch balls with wrench flats. As usual, etrailer was easy to deal with.


It's a hitch ball. Simple. But you do need a 1 7/8" socket to install it. And the ability to torque it to 450ft lbs.


My order of hitch ball, ball mount and pin was delivered on time.


I just received my ball mount receiver and ball. Great looking product. I'm excited to see how the cushion works. Torqueing the ball to 450ft lbs. was fun!!!


Completely Satisfied!!! Thank You!!!


Very solid and fit perfectly in the hitch that I had. Haven't used it to pull the trailer, yet, but will be doing that within the next week or so. I think it will be just perfect.
Thank you for a great site with "how-to's" and for your easy ordering, conscientious follow-up, and quick processing.


Hitch ball...does what its suppose to.


Very substantial ball, washer, and bolt. I wish it came with more detailed installation instruction as I wasn't quite sure where the washer needed to go.


I purchased this ball for my 10k lb trailer project. Although I haven't been able to use this ball yet, the quality looks to be very nice.


Good fit. You'll need 2 - 2" wrenches and a big 3ft pipe to crank to 600 ft lbs. Best done when draw bar and head are mounted on vehicle.


nice ball, works well, needed to have a pro tighten it to the recommended foot lbs of torque(450#). most of us do not own tools this big....that cost me $5.00


fast service! good products !!! would buy from etrailer again.


Great ball!!!

Skip M.


working great....


Wonderful product! Most importantly their customer service was beyond exceptional. I ordered incompatible items and instead of just shipping them they reached out to better understand my need, and get me the right items. Every person I worked with was phenomenal! Huge shout out to Tyra F she saved my life with this move!


Appears well built and "feels like an A." (Back to School)
Says it's good for 14,000 lbs.
I'm pulling 12,000 lbs.
I hope I don't have to retract my 5 star rating - ever.


Just as shown, good quality, fits well. Not: Requires a 2" wrench or socket and the ability to tighten to 425 ft lbs.


So far so good!
No Problems


Worked great. Built well


we received exceptional & professional service on this (our first) order


this is a great product ! you always have what i need. i will be shopping with you again. thanks


Im sure it will work fine. havent used it yet.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Aluminum Frame 10,000 lb Trailer
    When choosing a weight distribution system, you want to go off the total tongue weight. This total tongue weight includes the loaded weight of the trailer tongue that you stated along with any cargo behind the rear axle of the towing vehicle. As long as your frame is not wider than 2-1/2 inches, I have a system that is compatible. I recommend the Reese Titan Weight Distribution w/out Shank - Trunnion Bar - 17,000 lbs GTW, 1,700 lbs TW # RP66006. This system does not have the integrated...

  • Replacement 2-5/16" Hitch Ball
    I am sorry but we do not sell spare parts and pieces for hitch balls. You would need to purchase the entire hitch ball like item # C40030.

  • Does the Titan Ball Mount # 45123 Have the Same Weight Capacity when Used in the Rise Position
    The Titan Ball Mount you referenced, part # 45123 can certainly be used in the rise position. The ball mount has a 3-1/2 inch rise, and has the same 12000 lb towing/ 1200 lb tongue weight capacity when used in the rise position. This ball mount requires a trailer ball with a 1-1/4 inch diameter shank like the # A-90 2 inch ball or the # 63836 2-5/16 inch ball. This ball mount is not compatible with the Ford Super Duty OEM 2-1/2 inch receiver.

  • Ball Shank Diameter Required for Reese Weight Distribution Systems
    You will need to get a ball with a medium size shank to go with the Replacement Head # RP58167 that you referenced. Medium shank balls have a diameter of 1-1/4 inches. If you need a ball with a 2-5/16 inch diameter you would want a Hitch Ball # 63836. If you need a ball with a 2 inch diameter you will want a Hitch Ball # A-90.

  • Recommended 2-5/16" Hitch Ball For Reese Stedi-Flex 14K Weight Distribution Hitch
    I recommend the 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # 63836 to use with the Reese Steadi-Flex Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control # RP66561. This hitch ball carries the same 14K weight rating as the Stedi-Flex to ensure that you never exceed the weight capacity of a single component. You will need a 1-7/8" 12pt Thin Walled Socket # ALL643216 to properly install the hitch ball on the Stedi-Flex hitch.

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a 8,500 lb Boat Trailer with Surge Brakes
    The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow, this figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached an FAQ on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. Typically tongue weight is 10-15 percent of the total trailer weight. At your total trailer weight of 8,500 lbs you will most likely have a tongue weight range of 850-1,275...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for Trailer with 1,500 lbs Tongue Weight
    For a weight distribution system for a tongue weight that is 1,500 lbs when loaded and sometimes 900 lbs you would want the Reese part # RP66131 but you would have to verify that your tongue weight would not exceed 1,500 lbs when loaded. Basically you would be at the edges of this systems range that is 800 to 1,500 lbs. For a shank you would then want the part # RP54970. For either tongue weight you would have to basically set the system up totally different. Easiest way to go between...

    For your R-Pod 151 with a tongue weight of about 250 lbs, you absolutely have the right option with the Blue Ox weight distribution hitch you asked about: - Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution with Sway Control # BXW0350 This system is for tongue weights that are up to 350 lbs, which is perfect for your trailer, and is going to give you a superb combination of leveling and sway control to make towing your R-Pod a much more comfortable experience.

  • Weight Distribution System That Will Work With a 1,400 Lbs Tongue Weight
    When deciding on a weight distribution system you will need to know the total tongue weight of your towing rig. This includes the loaded ready to tow trailer plus any cargo you might be carrying behind the rear axle of the toing vehicle. I can give you a general recommendation on a system based on the information that you provided. Lets say your trailer's tongue weight is 1,400 lbs loaded and you plan to carry 100 lbs of cargo, then your total tongue weight would be 1,500 lbs. When choosing...

  • Which Hitch Ball is Better, the Curt or the Draw-Tite?
    Both the Draw-Tite item # 63836 and the Curt item # C40030 will work with the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount item # AMSC4HD. The 1/8" difference in shank length will not affect the function of the hitch ball. I recommend the Curt item # C40030 because it has a slightly higher capacity and it will save you some money.

  • 14k Capacity Ball Mount Options
    The ball mount part # AMSC4HD has a 14k capacity and is designed to fit a 2 inch hitch. This ball mount has a 2-3/4" Rise/ 4" Drop. For a hitch ball you would want the part # 63836 as it has a 14k capacity as well and is a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball. Or for an adjustable ball mount that can do various rises/drops you would want the part # AM3298. I attached a help article on how to pick out the correct rise/drop ball mount as well.

  • Is the Curt Weight Distribution Shank Offered In 2-1/2
    The Curt Weight Distribution Shank is offered is 2-1/2", part # C17132 for an 9-1/4" drop or part # C17131 for 2" drop. In regards to the hitch ball, the 2-5/16" Hitch Ball part # 63836 is rated for 14K and has a 1-1/4" shank which most weight distribution systems use.

  • Will a Weight Distribution System Stop My 2005 Nissan Armada Truck From Sagging
    Yes, a weight distribution system will help keep your vehicle from sagging when hooked up. The spring bars of the weight distribution system work to transfer the load from the tongue of the trailer to the vehicle and trailer axles. You will need to properly load your trailer so that the tongue weight is not too high and is within the limits of your towing system. This will also help keep your vehicle level. Generally your tongue weight should be within 10 to 15 percent of your gross trailer...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for a 2006 Four Winds Trailer with 1,000 Pound Tongue Weight
    When choosing a weight distribution system, it is better to err on the side of safety. In this case, it means a higher capacity system. You never want a system with a capacity under what your tongue weight is. So in this case, I would not use a 1,000 pound system as it is not strong enough. I recommend going with a system that is rated 800 to 1,500 pounds. Your dry tongue weight will be right in the middle of this capacity range and it will allow for several hundred more pounds once your...

  • Recommended Pole Tongue Adapter And Weight Distribution For 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 3500
    You can use a weight distribution system with your trailer with a pole tongue. You need an adapter part # RP58393. This adapter allows you to attach a weight distribution system. Using this pole tongue adapter does limit your towing capacity to 14,000-lbs and the tongue weight is limited to 1,400-lbs. The weight distribution system I recommend is the Reese Titan, part # RP66006. This is a trunnion bar system and is designed for 2-1/2 inch receiver openings. Since the shank and hitch...

  • Replacement Head for Reese Trunnion Style Weight Distribution System
    I spoke with my contact at Reese and he confirmed that the replacement head for your Reese weight distribution system is part # RP58167. If you need a replacement shank you will want part # RP54970. This shank has a 2" drop to 6-1/2" rise and a 1,500 lbs. tongue weight. I have attached the installation details for the replacement head for you to check out. If you need a hitch ball with a 2-5/16" diameter I recommend part # 63836. This ball has a gross trailer weight of 14,000 lbs. If...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 pulling a 26 ft 4900 lb trailer
    Based on the numbers you gave me it would not be required that you use a weight distribution hitch on your 2006 Dodge Ram 1500, but it would greatly improve the ride of your towing setup and overall towing experience by leveling out your vehicle and trailer, increasing your steering, brake performance, increasing traction and decreasing sway. If you are planning on using the trailer frequently a weight distribution system would be a good investment, especially since it would decrease the...

I have listed 3 recommended balls below.

  • Weight Distribution System for 2008 Ford F-250 Towing 12,000 lb
    Hitch reducers like the Curt sleeve part # C45405 that you referenced do not reduce the weight capacity of the hitch they are installed in. The only type of hitch size adapter that does reduce capacity are ones that go from a smaller size to a bigger size. You're going to be pretty close to the capacity of your truck so a weight distribution system would be a very good idea. For a weight distribution system rated well for 1,500 lbs of tongue weight the Reese part # RP66075. This has a...

  • Recommendation for a 14,000 Pound Ball Mount for a 2011 Ford F-350 Dually
    The closest ball mount we have to a 2 inch rise that is also rated for 14K is the Cushioned Ball Mount, # AMSC2HD. It has a rise of 1-1/2 inches and accepts a ball with a 1-1/4 inch shank. For a ball, you can use # 63836. Another option would be an adjustable ball mount, # C45900.

  • Weight Distribution System for a 2009 GMC Sierra 2500/3500 Towing a 14,000 LB 10-inch I-Beam Trailer
    To choose a properly tuned weight distribution system for your trailer you will need to go by the total effective tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the measured tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. If your coupler is mounted to the bottom of the 10-inch I-beam, then I recommend the Reese weight distribution system # RP66131. The gross towing weight is...

This hitch is a Class V hitch and has a 2 inch receiver opening. We have not received any feedback from customers about the hitch not fitting. For a ball mount I recommend part # BWBMHD30010.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution For A 26 Foot 9,100 Lbs.Trailer With Surge Brakes
    The Reese Trunnion Weight Distribution with Sway Control, # RP66560, will work on your trailer with surge brakes, but it has a Gross Towing Weight capacity of 12,000 lbs. and a is designed for a tongue weight between 600 lbs. to 1,200 lbs. On your trailer with a 9,100 lbs. gross weight capacity, the tongue weight would be 10 to 15 per cent of the gross weight so that would put you at 910 lbs. to 1,365 lbs. tongue weight range. You will want the tongue weight of your trailer to fall within...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a 2015 Ford F-150 Towing Car Hauler
    Suspension enhancement is great for vehicles that are carrying a heavy load in the cargo area of the vehicle. But if the sag is from towing a trailer a much better solution is a weight distribution system. This will take the tongue weight of the trailer and partially distribute it to the front axle of the vehicle which will give it better braking and handling characteristics than with suspension enhancement. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the...
