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.
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" Heavy Duty 8" rise/drop hitch has a max towing capacity of 22,000 lbs and a tongue weight capacity of 3,000 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 being sold 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.

I run a 6” Lift 37” Ridge grapplers. I bought the 8” drop. It works great for how I use it. I pull a 14’ dump and bumper pull camper, the drop height is perfect. If you’re hauling a car hauler type trailer a 10” would probably be ideal. Only reason I dinged a star is because the actual ball mount part sits a little loose when it’s mounted on the actual hitch. Without a load it just moves around and makes a bunch of noise, especially down dirt roads. Not a huge fan of that, probably going to add some sort of rubber type o ring on it to try and muffle some of the sound. Loaded with a trailer, no problem. It’s definitely a heavy duty hitch which was he entire reason of purchase.
