Recommended Steel Adjustable Ball Mount for a 2-1/2


What kind of steel adjustable reciever do yall have for a 2 1/2 in hitch


Expert Reply:

For a Steel Adjustable Ball Mount, I recommend the Curt Adjustable 2 Ball Mount for 2-1/2" hitches # C45902. This ball mount will fit your 2-1/2" hitch and has a 6" drop or 5-1/4" rise. This ball mount is made from durable heavy-duty steel and has an anti-rattle design to help reduce towing noise.

You may want to consider an aluminum ball mount over steel because it is lighter and more resistant to rust. For an aluminum ball mount, I recommend the Weigh Safe Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # WS6-25. This ball mount will fit in your 2-1/2" hitch and has a 6" Drop and 7" Rise. This ball mount locks to the shank and secures in place with included dual locking pins. This aluminum ball mount also comes with a tongue weight scale built into the ball mount platform to help you balance your trailer.

2 Hitch balls are included to allow you to tow trailers with different coupler sizes. The 2-5/16 ball can tow up to 15,000 lbs. and the 2" ball can tow up to 8,000 lbs.

Other differences between steel construction and aluminum construction are steel will not dent or scratch as much as the aluminum made ball mount. Also, it is denser and stronger than aluminum. However, the steel ball mount weights about 40 lbs. while the aluminum ball mount only weighs 20 lbs.

I attached a review video of the Weigh Safe Ball Mount and Curt Ball Mount you may find helpful.
