Trailer Hitches
Many Popular Brands and Types Available, Call For More Details!

Hitch, Truck Hitch, Trailer Hitch, Tow Hitch, Receiver Hitch... Whatever you call it, the Hitch is the mechanism that is typically mounted to the rear of a vehicle under the bumper. There are five classes of Hitches for towing trailers. Each class is designed for a specific trailer weight range. When selecting the appropriate hitch make sure the weight rating of the hitch is greater than the loaded weight of the trailer that will be towed. The tow vehicle capacity for weight carrying and hitch attachment will vary and will sometimes dictate the class of hitch that can be used.

Equip the front of your truck, SUV or van with a Front Hitch Receiver. It creates a sturdy, secure and safe mounting point for your snow plow and winch. Even add a hitch step to reach deep into your engine compartment without climbing up a ladder.

Best of all, it is custom-built to fit right to your rig's frame. And, it comes pre-drilled to accept a locking J-Pin. That way, thieves can't walk off with your expensive equipment, and sway is held at bay.

 

 

   

Ball Mounts
Many Popular Brands and Types Available, Call For More Details!

The ball mount is designed to be inserted into the hitch. There are different styles of ball mounts, so please refer to "Selecting the correct ball mount" chart for your specific ball mount. Ball Mounts come in different lengths and are used in drop and rise positions, use the chart to help determine which ball mount fits your needs. When selecting a ball mount make sure to look at the weight rating, it should be equal to or larger than the hitch being used.

For safe and comfortable towing the trailer should always be set up to tow on a level plane. Sometimes a trailer's tongue is higher or lower than the ball mount on the vehicle. In this situation a ball mount with a "Rise" or a "Drop" is required to level the trailer.

Selecting the correct Ball Mount  
 
 
Step 1:
Measure from the ground to the top of the hitch.
 
Step 2:
Level trailer, then measure from the ground to the top of the trailer coupler.
Step 3:
Subtract the height of the hitch ball (most are 2-1/2" to 3" high) from Step 2. The example would be 18" minus 3" = 15". 
Step 4:
The difference between Step 1 and Step 3 would be the "Drop" or "Rise" that is needed for your Towing System. The example would be a result of 8" Drop is required. (23" minus 15")

Hitch Balls
Many Popular Brands and Types Available, Call For More Details!

Hitch balls come in different sizes and styles so refer to "Selecting the correct hitch ball" chart for your specific need. Keep in mind the hitch ball weight rating should always be equal to or larger than the hitch and ball mount being used.
 
Selecting the correct Hitch Ball
- Your towing system’s maximum weight rating is always equal to the lowest rated item in the system.
-  Your hitching system cannot be upgraded to a rating higher than the maximum rating of your hitch.
 
For example, a 3,500 lb. ball on a 2,000 lb. max trailer weight rated hitch does not increase your towing capacity to 3,500 lbs. Your hitching system is still rated at 2,000 lbs. Conversely, a 2,000 lb. ball on a 3,500 lb. max trailer weight-rated hitch decreases your maximum towing capacity to 2,000 lbs.

The hitch ball diameter (A) must be the same diameter as the trailer coupler (1-7/8”, 2”, or 2-5/16”).

The shank diameter (B) of the hitch ball should be the same as the hole diameter in the (correct) ball mount you selected. The shank length (C) should be long enough to allow at least two threads to be visible when the hitch ball is installed and the nut completely tightened.

Friction Sway Control
Friction Sway Control uses friction to resist pivotal movement and thereby works against the effects of induced sway. It operates on the principle of "stiffening" the coupling between the tow vehicle and trailer. The degree of "stiffening" or friction is adjusted to suit various trailer weights and towing conditions. Its operation is simple and uncomplicated. It doesn't prevent the generation of sway; it simply works to resist the forces once they have started.
