Best Drop Hitch..... any experiences?

Hey Guys,

I have a 6" lift & 37" tires but I also need to haul a trailer here & there. So, I was wondering who had a drop hitch that they liked AND/OR didnt like?

I have been looking around and thinking something like a 9"?

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mike

By far the best hitch:

Diversi Tech Self locking adjustable Billet hitch. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give it an 11.
Diversi-Tech - DT Aluminum Ball Mounts - Trailer Security Locks

I have the B&W drop hitch on mine. I really like it and have pulled with it quite a bit.

I have the same B&W. if you but it from the local " dealer" for $250 it's not a good deal, but I got both mine on amazon. Shipped for about $175/ea.

It's massive. Weighs like 40lbs. It's no joke. I broke a finger last year when i pulled the last pin out too quick and it dropped on me. Lol.

Just be careful of your trailer weights. Most of those drop hitches are only rated at 9,000 or maybe 10,000 lbs. I snapped one pulled a 12,000lb load, So I pay more attention to the ratings now.

If you are not towing very heavy, No big deal.

I have a B&W tri-ball drop. Opted to get the added pintle attachment too. I'm pretty pleased with it. I have a little bit of rust on the hitch and pins but none on the trailer balls. It is definitely a nice looking unit and is very heavy duty.

Depends on how heavy you're towing. Under 10k lbs - B&W, Action Accessories, or Alumistinger are good choices. As mentioned, pay attention to the ratings.

If you are towing heavy or truly want the best, you'll want a drop hitch from One Up Offroad.

Those are more like drop receivers. What are they rated for?
