Can Bulldog Winch Mounting Plate be Used with Curt Shank and Adjustable 2" Reciver


Can you tell me if the following items are compatible? Item C17123 (7" - 10 Hole adjustable shank) PLUS Item # C45802 PLUS Item #C45800 With Item BDW20011 (Winch Hitch Mount) Looks to me like the first THREE can work all together, but I'm not sure if the WINCH HITCH MOUNT can fit in C45802 receiver. Can't tell how deep it is.

Yes, the Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank # C17123 and Replacement 2" Receiver # C45802 are compatible with both the Replacement Tri-Ball # C45800 and the Bulldog Winch Hitch Mounted Winch Mounting Plate # BDW20011. I went out to the warehouse and verified this.

I also spoke with my contact at Curt to get his take on using the winch mounting plate with these parts since they are technically designed to be used for towing and he said that it would be best to not exceed the 6,000 lb weight limit that they have for the 1-7/8" hitch ball on the Tri-Ball that you will also be using, but you can use this combination with the winch mounting plate.
