Will Extra Long Ball Mount Reduce Towing or Tongue Weight Capacity


I have a 2005 Jeep liberty 3.7l with a spare tire on the back. I purchased a ball and hitch product number 82032. I plan on towing a popup weighing 2,215 pounds. With this extended towing hitch how much will this change my towing capacity for my vehicle? Our season hasnt started yet, I just dont want any problems towing on the highway. Thank you for the awesome service Ive had. Cant wait to use my towing mirrors and just have a fun season.

Expert Reply:

The Hidden Hitch # 80232 ball mount will not reduce your vehicle's towing capacity like an adapter or extender will. The ball mount's max towing capacity is 6,000 pounds and its max tongue weight is 600 pounds.

You should check the capacity of your hitch and your 2005 Jeep Liberty for their max capacities because the lowest rated component will be what determines how much you can tow.
