Recommended Pintle Hook Hitch Ball Combo And Adjustable Height Mounting Plate For 2006 Jeep Liberty

Question:

Hello, I have a 2006 Jeep Liberty Renegade with a 2inch receiver. Looking to tow a small tear trailer 4x8 with 15inch tires. Also using a pintle hook. The trailer is like one that would hold an Ingersoll Rand compressor. When towing it now, the trailer is tilted forward due to the large tires, Do they make an extension to clear the spare tire and a riser of 4 or 5 inches able to tow that trailer level. Weight would be less than a ton. Thank you

For your 2006 Jeep Liberty Renegade, I recommend using the Convert-A-Ball Pintle Hook Combo with 3 Stainless Steel Balls - Bolt On - 25,000 lbs # PH1. This will give you all 3 of the hitch ball sizes and also give you the pintle hook option. For the mounting plate and shank to have the clearance for the spare tire and the rise you need, I recommend the B&W Pintle Hook Mounting Plate for 2" Hitches - 15" Shank - 14 Hole - 16,000 lbs # BWPMHD14005.

These rated capacities are far greater than your needs, but the adjustability will allow you all the functionality you are seeking.

Question:

Measuring from the center of the pin on my 2" receiver, I need to come out 14" to get passed the spare and up 6" to get the trailer level. Got anything like that?

We don't have a pintle hook mount that will give you more clearance and adjustment than the mount I already recommended. The B&W Pintle Hook Mounting Plate for 2" Hitches - 15" Shank - 14 Hole - 16,000 lbs # BWPMHD14005, however can be used with an extension if you like as long as the towing capacity is a fit with your system. I recommend the Roadmaster Anti-Rattle Hitch Extender for Tow Bars - 2" Hitches - 7-3/4" Extension # RM-071-1075 to give you the additional clearance you need.
