Choosing Between 6" and 8" Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount w/ Built-In Scale for Ford F-450


What size hitch do I get a 6inch or 8inch hitch my truck is stock suspension but with 37s tires ?


Helpful Expert Reply:

The correct size drop to look for in a ball mount is specific to the truck and trailer. You'll want to get the one that allows you to tow multiple trailers yes but if you go with too much drop it can create ground clearance issues. Therefore, it's best to measure your truck and trailer first. If you don't have a trailer yet you can use the standard coupler height of 16"/17" as a guide and then subtract this from the distance from the ground to the top of the receiver tube on the truck. This should help you decide between part # WS6-3 6" drop and part # WS8-3 8" drop.
