Our 2.5" Extreme Duty 8" Drop or Rise Hitch is unlike any of our competitors. We worked hard to create one amazing Hitch that does the work of 10.
Our hitches are extensively tested and exceed SAE-J684 testing requirements. They are built with such high standards that we have never had a single failure and you can see why from the features listed below:
Class 5 Hitch with 6,000 lb Tongue Weight Capacity & 36,000 lb Max Towing Capacity
5 Ride Heights That Are Easily Adjustable.
STANDARD DUAL BALL MOUNT
Each adjustable mount includes a 2-ball platform, which fits in the adjustable channel. The 2 hitch balls are welded together onto the solid steel platform for maximum strength and stability.
Standard Ball Sizes: 2" & 2-5/16"
Note: We can substitute the standard dual ball sizes for either of the following ball mount options:
Please leave us a note at checkout or give us a call at 941-251-8110 to let us know which ball mount option you would like to substitute for the standard ball mount.
SOLID STEEL SHANK
The hitch shank is solid steel all the way through and has chamfered edges so it can easily slide into & out of your hitch receiver. It also comes with two pin holes for more adjustment options.
The textured powder coated finish creates a durable surface to help protect your hitch.
Signature Black Textured Powder Coat
All BulletProof Hitches feature a durable corrosion resistant powder coat. This process starts off with an aggressive sand blast to remove all impurities and create a clean surface for the powder coat. After the sand blast process the hitch moves through a 5 stage pre-treatment wash to remove any oil or residue. The metal is then sealed to eliminate corrosion. The final step is an application of our signature black textured powder coat which is applied with a Fanuc robot to ensure consistent thickness across the hitch.
Note: This is a sample image used to show the powder coat finish on a BulletProof Hitch. It may not be the same size hitch as the one featured on this page.
Components of the BulletProof Hitch are machined in house on our state of the art Haas CNC machines. Our CNC machines use Renishaw probes which allow us to manufacture all parts to an extremely tight tolerance. This ensures that the hitch and ball combo fit together without slop or excess movement when attached to your vehicle.
Using Our Hitches in the Rise Position
All of our hitches can be used in the drop or rise position and maintain the same weight capacity in either position.
This 2.5" Extreme Duty 8" rise/drop hitch has a max towing capacity of 36,000 lbs and a tongue weight capacity of 6,000 lbs in both the drop & rise position.
Note: This is a sample image used to show a BulletProof Hitch in the rise position. It may not be the same size hitch as the one featured on this page. This image also shows a Pintle attachment, which is not a part of the hitch. It is an accessory that can be purchased separately.

This is the beast of hitches. The Extreme Duty is the one rated at #30,000 lbs. for the 2-5/16" ball. It fits a solid 2-1/2 " receiver. Seems very well made. The welds are precision and the powder coating is xlnt. The drop seems like its a bit more than 8" but thats ok. I needed an excuse to lift my truck a tad...!! I will be adding some padlocks to the anodized pins that secure the ball(s) / slide for security. I have a locking hitch pin already to protect the main part of the hitch. This hitch will probably last an easy 100+ years..Great investment..My 14' RAM 2500 Cummins 4x4 makes a nice addition to it...
