  When it comes to bumper towing, the two main hitch types to keep in mind are ball hitches and pintle hitches. Ball hitches are typically used on vehicles that are towing small boats or trailers and are most common for recreational purposes.

Growing up in Florida as a kid, I would spend almost every weekend out on the water with my dad in our family fishing boat, a 17 foot Mako center console. Our local boat ramp was just a couple of miles down the road and because we spent so much time on the water, we eventually perfected the perfect launching and loading strategy that would get our boat on or off the trailer in less than 30 seconds.

Determining the right BulletProof Hitch for your vehicle is a very simple process, however it is important to filter out misinformation that tends to be passed around as absolute truth. Some common misconceptions of drop hitches: -All drops are equal, for example an 8" drop hitch from one company is the same as an 8" drop hitch from another company.
