Are you in the market for a new ball mount for your pickup? Colloquially called ‘hitches,’ ball mounts connect your vehicle’s hitch receiver to a hitch ball, which then connects to the tongue of a tow-behind trailer!
You may be in the market for a new ball mount for several reasons. Whether you’re a new pickup owner, new to towing, or simply looking to upgrade, we carry all the top ball mount brands, models, and sizes, ensuring a product that suits your vehicle and trailer!
Ball Mount Options
Ball mounts come in several shapes, sizes, and styles, ensuring compatibility with every hitch receiver, ball receiver, and vehicle! The options you’ll typically encounter when shopping for Ball Mounts include:
Height: Ball mounts come in several height configurations, including conventional straight ball mounts, drop ball mounts (ideal for lifted applications), and adjustable ball mounts, allowing you to raise and lower the height of the ball!
Single or Multi-Ball: If you frequently tow multiple trailers with different ball sizes and don’t want an additional ball mount for every trailer, consider a multi-ball mount! These ball mounts include 2–3 alternate hitch ball sizes, allowing you to use the same ball mount for multiple trailers!
Shank Size: Receiver hitches come in four standard sizes, determined by the hitch class. These include 1-¼”, 2”, 2-½”, and 3”. When shopping for a new ball mount, ensure the shank size matches your receiver size!
Gross Weight Rating: Each ball mount comes rated for specific weight limits, including tongue weight and gross trailer rating. When shopping for a new ball mount, select a product that meets or exceeds the weight you’ll be towing.
Construction: What’s your preferred construction? Ball mounts typically come manufactured from two materials: steel and aluminum. While steel is generally sturdier, aluminum is considerably lighter and more corrosion-resistant. As long as the mount’s rating meets the weight you plan to tow, either material is fine!
Stowable or Fixed: Are you planning to leave your ball mount locked to your pickup full-time? If so, consider a stowable ball mount, allowing you to fold the bulk of the mount beneath the rear bumper to prevent bruised shins and banged-up knees!
