Review of the Draw-Tite Long Shank 2 Inch Hitch Ball

Hey, everybody. Adam here with etrailer. Today we're gonna be taking a look at the Draw-Tite two-inch hitch ball. So when it comes to hitch balls, one, you need to look at your coupler to see what size you are using. So with this one, it typically says it right up top, but it might be worn off. But that's where you'll find it.

It is a two-inch, so we're good there. Well, the next thing is, we wanna make sure that it works with our ball mount. So one thing we need to take into consideration is the hole that it goes through. So we wanna make sure that the hole is gonna be about 3/4 of an inch in diameter. And we have a 2 3/8-inch long shank.

So make sure that the platform that you're gonna be mounting it on is gonna be between 3/8 inches thick all the way up to an 1 1/4-inch thick. If it's any thicker than that, we're not gonna be able to thread it. And if it's any skinnier than that, we're not gonna be able to actually get it nice and tightened down. We do want to torque this down with a torque wrench just to make sure it's nice and solid. This one's gonna have a 3,500 pound capacity, and that's gonna mean a 350-pound tongue weight.

But just because the ball is rated for that doesn't mean that your ball mount's gonna be rated for that. And that doesn't mean that the hitch is gonna be rated. So we don't want to overload our hitch. We don't want to overload the ball mount. And, of course, the ball.

So make sure that these two are gonna be kind of in the same ballpark. And then also you wanna make sure that it's not gonna be overloading your hitch. There isn't really a whole lot to this. It's just chrome plated. It will rust over time. It's not just this one. It's pretty much all of them. So if you wanted to upgrade, I guess you can get an aluminum ball if you really wanted to keep it from rusting away, so it looks a little bit nicer. But all in all, that's basically it for a look at the Draw-Tite two-inch hitch ball..
