Review of the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount with 8 Inch Drop on a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado

Today, on our 2006 Chevrolet Silverado, we'll be test-fitting the Convert-A-Ball cushion ball mount for 2-inch hitches for the 6 3/4-inch rise or 8-inch drop, rated at 10,000 pounds. Now, to begin, we'll need to get out hitch height measurement. To do this, we'll measure from the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground. On this truck that measurement is 19 inches. Now, keep in mind that measurement can vary due to hitch style, tire size, or any other accessory that may affect your vehicle's right height, so it's a good idea to measure yours. We'll now simply slide the shank of our ball mount into the hitch, line up the hitch pinhole and install our hitch pin.

We can put the clip on the other side of the pin which will secure our ball mount to the vehicle here on the drop position. From the top of the ball mount platform to the ground measures 11 inches. We can now go ahead and flip the ball mount over to the rise position. In the rise position, our ball mount platform measures 23 3/4 inches to the ground. That will do it for the Convert-A-Ball cushion ball mount for two-inch hitches with 6 3/4-inch rise or 8-inch drop, rated at 10,000 pounds, part number AMSC8, on our 2006 Chevrolet Silverado.
