I have a B&W tow and stow tri-ball. It folds up and under the truck when not in use and I think it is rated up to 10k lbs.

I use the Rapid Hitch 4" adjustable with grease-less coating on each ball. Give me 8" of actual adjustment since they can be turned upside down. If you decide on this set up get the $40 lock kit... Comes with two locks, one for the receiver and one for adjustment piece. With the locks not even the balls can be stolen with simple hand tools.

I used to have a B&W Tow & Stow adjustable hitch and it would constantly seize up as it was made of steel. Pins would rust in the holes and make it impossible to adjust without punching them out with a hammer. I now have an aluminum hitch, the Diversitech posted above that is great. Weighs a lot less than the BW steel hitch and no more seized pins.

Mine has never seized up but I also do not live in Antarctica. A little grease on the pins goes a long way too.

Ok So here is where I am. My truck has the 2 1/2 " slot so I guess I will need to buy an adapter to be able to use a b&w hitch? Any suggestions on the best agapter to reduce ? I see complaints about sloppy loose play with some adapters. Thanks!

Your truck lifted? I have a diversitech I will sell you! 6 inch drop Adjustable! 2 1/2 shank! fully lockable with keys and double balls (2 & 2 5/16). Solid aluminum. Best on market! Only reason I'm selling is because I went to a 10 inch drop one after I lifted my truck. Let me know.
