What Size Hitch do I Need?

How to Find the Perfect Bulletproof Hitch for Your Vehicle

First, measure the receiver opening either horizontally or vertically (Figure A) to determine what size shank your vehicle requires. It will be 2″, 2.5″ or 3″ (3″ is applicable to some 2017 Ford Super Duty trucks and some RVs & Semis only.)

Next, park the vehicle on level ground and measure from the ground to the bottom of the inside of the receiver tube (Figure B & C), then take that measurement and apply it to the information in this chart. As you can see, this particular truck would require our 4″ drop with a 2″ shank.

Receiver height as measured:
[12″-16″] requires 4″ drop/rise hitch in the rise position;
[16″-18″] requires 4″ drop/rise hitch;
[19″-21″] requires 6″ drop/rise hitch;
[22″-24″] requires 8″ drop/rise hitch;
[25″-27″] requires 10″ drop/rise hitch;
[28″-30″] requires 12″ drop/rise hitch;
[31″-33″] requires 14″ drop/rise hitch;
[34″-36″] requires 16″ drop/rise hitch;
[36″+] requires custom order hitch.
