This receiver hitch looks good, does everything I need it to do and is very solid. I did my research, found what i wanted and then found it at 4wheel parts for a phenomenal price. 4 wheel parts was easy to use and they deliver on their promises. I would use them again for sure.

Great hitch, light and easy to switch the height. Super fast shipping and great response from the local store.

Selecting the proper ball mount drop or rise for your trailer
For safe, comfortable trailer towing, the trailer should always be set up to tow as level as possible. A level trailer puts less strain on the connection between the trailer and the hitch. This also allows the trailer to track true behind the vehicle. Trailer and vehicle heights vary so a correct rise or drop will be needed to level the trailer. Determining the correct rise and drop needed for your vehicle can be determined by using the following simple steps.
1. Measure receiver height
1 With the vehicle parked on level ground, measure the hitch height from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on the hitch.
2. Measure coupler height
2 Next, you will need to measure from the bottom of the trailer’s coupler to the ground. Make sure the trailer is on level ground and the trailer itself is level.
3. Subtract the difference
Compute the difference between the receiver height and the coupler height. If the hitch height is greater than the coupler height, the difference is the drop that is required. If the coupler height is greater, then the difference is the rise that is required. Select a fixed drop or adjustable ball mount with a rise or drop that is closest to the difference you come up with. For example, if the receiver hitch height is 26″ and the trailers coupler height is 20″. Then a 6” drop ball mount would be a perfect drop for this application. Please account for some adjustment if air bags are not being used to prevent the truck from sinking a little when loaded.
For a standard 3/4 ton truck off the lot of dealership.
As a general rule - how does one know what drop in adjustment to purchase? Ex. 4", 6", 8" etc. For towing boat.

Thanks for the question Ken, I would recomend backing up to the trailer and getting some measurements before making a purchase. The nice thing about this reciever is that it is adjustable, the 6" is probly what you need but get some measurements first.
The Diversi Tech DTMDT-ALBM6425 adjustable ball mount has a 1,500# tongue weight rating and a 10,000# Trailer limit. Never exceed your vehicle manufacture towing ratings even if your towing accessory's exceed them. Thank You
To properly measure for a drop ball mount you will need to park your trailer on level ground with the wheels choked. with the trailer setting level measure from the ground to the inside of the ball coupler.(lets say that it measures 18 inches). with your truck level measure from the top of the receiver hole to the ground (we will say 23 inches) no measure the height of your hitch ball (most are 3 inches high) Subtract the hitch ball height from the trailer height leaving 15 inches, subtract the 15 from the 23 inches of the truck leaving 8 drop hitch needed.
truck hitch height - ball height - trailer height = ball mount height
