Replacement Hitch Ball to Increase Ball Height  


I need a 2 inch tow ball with a 1 inch shank. Right now, the height of my tow ball is 2 3/8 inches. I need one that is 3 3/8 inch, appx 1 inch taller. I see that you have different heights but no description of height above the hitch. Not sure if what I have is standard and therefore, I would need hitch described as 1 inch higher. Please let me know. Thanks.


Helpful Expert Reply:

It is always important to keep your trailer level when hitched to your tow vehicle and the two simplest ways to accomplish this are either a high-rise hitch ball such as the two you reviewed, parts # C40033 and # C40034, or a ball mount with the amount of rise you need. Either option will work.

The hitch balls you referenced are shown in the linked photo; I have added the dimension above the mounting surface for each ball.

If you have a 2-inch hitch receiver and want to use your existing hitch ball you can simply replace the ball mount with one that has 1-inch of rise. The link provided will show you all ball mounts for 2-inch receivers that have 1-inch of rise, such as the B&W # BWBMHD30010.
