Can I Use My BulletProof Hitch in the Rise Position?
When it comes to buying a hitch for your vehicle, it’s crucial to choose one that can meet all of your towing needs. That’s why one of the most frequent questions we receive at BulletProof Hitches is about whether or not our products can also be used in the rise position.
Unlike many other ball hitches on the market, the correct answer is yes!
Understanding the Need for the Rise Position When Towing
One of the first rules of towing is that your trailer and vehicle must remain level at all times—that’s where an adjustable ball hitch comes in handy.
The adjustable channel on the BulletProof Hitch™ offers the ability to move the dual ball to different ride heights to help make up any necessary height differences between a trailer and your vehicle.
While most of our customers tend to use their BulletProof Hitch™ in the drop position on their lifted or even stock height truck, there are situations that would call for the ball to actually sit above the receiver. In these situations, you can simply flip your BulletProof Hitch 180 degrees and insert the shank into the receiver in the rise position. This will give you the same towing capacity as it would in the drop position.
A few examples of situations that usually call for a "rise hitch" include towing with:
- Low-Rider Vehicles
- Trailers with Higher than Normal Couplers
While many drivers think they can just switch any standard ball hitch into the rise position, this isn’t always the best option. If a hitch is not built to be used ain that position, it can weaken the hitch's integrity and make for an unsafe towing experience.
Thankfully, however, any of our products at BulletProof Hitches™ work just as well in the drop or rise position, proving once again that the BulletProof Hitch is the last hitch you will ever need!
Rise Position Towing Made Easy with Our Offset Hitches
While it’s great to have the option to turn your hitch around in the receiver to create a rise or drop ball hitch, this isn’t always the most convenient option. That’s why BulletProof Hitches is proud to offer one of the most innovative towing products on the market—our Offset Hitch!
Constructed with the shank in the middle of the device, offset hitches can be used in the rise or drop position, without the annoyance of taking it out and switching it around.
