dimensional diagram

This adjustable ball mount has a maximum capacity of 14,000 lbs, making it ideal for heavy-duty towing. The steel construction is strong enough to handle large trailers and heavy cargo, and the matte powder coat finish will protect the ball mount from rust and corrosion, even after repeated use. The BulletProof Hitches adjustable ball mount gives you the strength you need to tow your big loads. And its durable, long-lasting construction can stand the test of time.


Heavy-Duty Construction

Because of its sturdy steel construction, this BulletProof Hitches adjustable ball mount can handle loads up to 14,000 lbs, making it perfect for heavy-duty towing jobs.


bulletproof 2.5 medium channel

The adjustable channel is made of 5/16" thick, laser-cut steel plates. These steel plates can handle high capacities without bending. And because of the laser cutting, the channel plates have consistently sized pin holes, so you can easily remove or reposition the hitch ball platform.


bulletproof 2.5 medium gusset

A 1/2" thick steel gusset is welded between the shank and the channel, bracing the mount and keeping the channel from bending, even at the maximum drop or rise.


bulletproof 2.5 medium shank

The steel shank easily slides into and out of your hitch receiver. And with no sharp edges on the shank, the powder coating is less likely to chip and peel.


bulletproof hitches ball platform

Each adjustable mount includes a 2-ball platform, which fits in the adjustable channel. The 2 hitch balls are welded onto the solid steel platform for maximum strength and stability.


bulletproof hitches pins and clips

Finally, the pins and clips included with the ball mount are made of heat-treated steel to withstand the heavy weight from your load. And the zinc finish provides corrosion resistance.


Made in the USA

BulletProof Hitches adjustable ball mounts are made in America and rigorously tested for heavy-duty applications. These ball mounts are used and trusted by various United States government organizations, such as the Department of Transportation, Department of Homeland Security, and all branches of the United States military.


Setting Up the BulletProof Ball Mount

To set up this BulletProof Hitches adjustable ball mount, insert the 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" shank into your hitch's receiver. Slide the 2-ball platform into the adjustable channel, then use the included pins and clips to secure the platform at the height you need. If you need to switch hitch balls, just remove the pins and clips, flip the ball platform over, and reinsert the pins and clips to secure the balls in place. It's that easy.


BulletProof Ball Mount Accessories

This BulletProof Hitches adjustable ball mount is compatible with a wide variety of accessories (sold separately). Instead of using the included ball to tow, you can install a weight distribution shank (358WEIGHTDIST) in the channel of the mount to attach your weight distribution system. Add a clevis (358CLEVIS) or shackle attachment (358EDSA) for off-road or recovery operations. Or simply add a hitch step (358STEP) to easily access your truck bed.

Video Transcript for Review of BulletProof Hitches Trailer Hitch Ball Mount - Adjustable 2 Ball Mount 2-1/2" - MD254

Hi, everybody. Andy here with etrailer.com. And today we're gonna take a look at BulletProof Hitches Adjustable 2-Ball Mount for 2-1/2" Hitch Receivers. Now this adjustable ball mount has a maximum capacity of 14,000 pounds, making it ideal for heavy duty towing. This shank is going to slide into your two and a half inch hitch receiver on your vehicle and it's ideal for vehicles with 12 inches to 18 inches of clearance on the ground to the bottom of the inside of your receiver tube. The adjustable height lets you tow trailers of different heights with the same vehicle and the hitch ball platform slides easily up or down the channel.

And it secures in place with these included pins and clips. Now just to show you how easy this is to adjust, I'm gonna go ahead and remove our clips and turn this around here so you can see me remove these pins. This adjustable channel is made of 5/16 of an inch thick laser cut steel plates. And these steel plates can handle high capacities without bending and because of the laser cutting of the holes, these channel plates have consistently sized pinholes so you can easily remove and reposition the hitch ball platform. So I had this on the two and 5/16th inch hitch ball.

I'm gonna go ahead and just flip this over to the two inch ball and lower this just a little bit here in our mount, and as you can see, there is no struggling with inserting and removing these pins. We talked about these laser cut holes, so there's not gonna be any catching or anything like that. Sometimes when you get an adjustable ball mount, from other manufacturers, there's kind of a break-in period where you have to adjust your ball platforms a few times just to get those pins to slide in easier. That's not the case with BulletProof Hitches. They're going to work very easily right out of the box.

Now these pin and clips, they are heat treated, and they have heat treated steel rather. And so they're going to withstand heavy weight from your load and the zinc finish is going to provide corrosion resistance. As you have no doubt noticed we have five adjustment holes and that's gonna give you four mounting positions, providing a maximum drop of about six and a quarter inches and a maximum rise, when you flip this over, of about six and a half inches. The adjustment hole diameter is 5/8 of an inch and you can tow up to 10,000 pounds with the two inch ball or up to 14,000 pounds with a two and 5/16 inch ball. The maximum tongue weight capacity is 2,000 pounds.

And as you can see, these hitch balls are welded directly to the ball platform providing extra sturdiness. Now this is made in the USA of heavy duty steel construction. That's strong enough to handle large trailers and heavy cargo. And another thing that I really appreciate about Bulletproof Hitches adjustable ball mounts is this matte black powder coat finish. Not only does it look great and not only is it gonna look attractive on the back of your vehicle, but it's also practically going to protect the ball mount from rust and corrosion even after repeated use. And so you're not gonna have to worry about this coating chipping off or peeling off easily. And the steel shank is going to slide into and out of your hitch receiver, and with no sharp edges on the shank, this matte powder coating is less likely to chip and peel. The hitch pin hole diameter is 5/8 of an inch and the pin and clip or hitch lock for securing this to your hitch receiver are not included. They are sold separately. So if you don't already have a compatible pin and clip, you would have to pick that up separately. However, this is really an investment that you're making in this adjustable ball mount. So I would definitely recommend taking a look at our hitch lock options here at etrailer.com. Now as you notice here, we do have a half inch thick steel gusset that is welded between the shank and the channel bracing the mount and keeping the channel from bending even at maximum drop or rise. And this adjustable ball mount is compatible with a wide variety of accessories that are sold separately. So, for instance, instead of using the included ball to tow you could install a weight distribution shank in the channel of the mount to attach your weight distribution system. Or you could add a clevis or shackle attachment for off-road or recovery operations, or you could simply add a hitch-step to easily access your truck bed. Check out the related products section of this product page for those options. Speaking of this product page, we do have a detailed diagram of all of the other important measurements that you are going to need to make sure that this is going to fit your application that I did not cover with you today. The total weight is about 28 pounds. This is SAE J684 certified. And this does have a limited lifetime warranty. One final note, I do wanna mention that Bulletproof Hitches adjustable ball mounts are rigorously tested for heavy duty applications. These ball mounts are used and trusted by various United States government organizations such as the Department of Transportation the Department of Homeland Security and all branches of the United States military. Well, that's gonna conclude our look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..

BulletProof Hitches 2-Ball Mount for 2-1/2" Hitch - 6-1/4" Drop, 6-1/2" Rise - 14K - MD254

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (411 Customer Reviews)

The thick channel plates and welded gusset on this USA-made, steel ball mount make it perfect for heavy-duty use. Tow up to 10K with the 2" ball or 14K with the 2-5/16" ball. Adjustable design lets you tow trailers of various heights.

by:

Powder coating on the 2-1/2" ball didn't even last a 3 foot pull of our trailer. Used the supplied ball grease. the 2" ball powder coating has held up just fine. I love the flexibility in height this hitch gives me, but was really disappointed by the powder coating durability.



by:

The BulletProff hitch is exactly as described. High quality, very solid and fits my needs. etrailer's service and online shopping is the best. Great descriptions and excellent video's describe and show their products very well. Fast replies and fast shipping.

This hitch does it all. I pull three trailers with a Silverado 2500, SOLID BUILT, easy to adjust. You will NOT be disappointed.



by:

Nice hitch. Works well, no complaints with it.

Item arrived on time and in perfect condition. Item was wrapped very well to prevent damage and the order/shipping process was very detailed. Will purchase again from etrailer next time I need and hitch items.

Still functioning and looking as excellent as it did the day it arrived. Well built hitch, truly fits my needs.



by:

Awesome product and great price. This Bulletproof hitch is definitely well built. I see no problems ahead with this hitch.



by:

I bought this hitch just under one year. To date, the hitch has performed fine. HOWEVER, the cheap powder coating has turned the entire hitch into a an eyesore. Its just rusting like mad, and the powder coat is now flaking in large chunks. Looks like crap on the back of the truck. I don't even live in an area where salt accumulates or they use it on the roadway.



by:

I need a solution for my BMW SUV to tow my boat and trailer with two ball sizes and very different height requirements. This worked perfectly. The name Bulletproof fits well - I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and engineering.



by:

So far I am extremely happy with this hitch. It is very heavy duty. My towing capacity has changed and needed to upgrade to a heavy duty hitch. I have no doubts this is going to be Bulletproof!! It is very well built and a solid shank.



by:

Beyond expectations. People come by complimenting on my hitch and asking where I bought it. I did not realize other hitches break. Well, this one won't break



by:

Extremely noisy. Powder coat peeled almost immediately and the tolerances on the pins makes this rattle horribly. I finally got so sick of the noise I cut foam to put between the ball mount and receiver. This hitch has not seen much use and only for light duty (under 10k lbs). I won't buy another one. All of the other hitches we have are Andersen Rapid Hitch. I tried this after all the claims by BulletProof on how great they are. Very disappointed



by:

I own several adjustable 2-1/2" hitches and like this one a lot. It isn't terribly heavy for being steel and is very easy to adjust. I like the pins versus the key-operated mechanism on my aluminum adjustable hitch. Works great with my Chevy 2500 and various trailers and boats from 5000 to 14000 lbs.



by:

My first and ongoing impression with your company: Friendly, competent people providing quality services. The hitch is everything I hoped it'd be, and should provide years of dependable service. Thanks again! I will use your outfit again without hesitation and tell others the same..



by:

The hitch looks very well made. I recently made some changes to my 02 F250 and needed a drop hitch.I mostly pull a #10000 GTW equipment trailer but occasionally pull a #14000 GTW dump trailer and a utility trailer with a 2" ball. This hitch fits my needs perfectly.



by:

Work as it should. Worth the money.



by:

Fast shipping! Great service! This is my go to place for all my trailer & towing needs

    You should have no problem using the 2-Tang Clevis for BulletProof Hitches Adjustable Ball Mount item # 358CLEVIS on your current ballmount. I say should because I have no idea which one you have but I do have the bolt hole measurements so you can confirm before ordering. The distance between mounting holes from center to center is 2".

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle Device for BulletProof Hitches 2-Ball Mount for 2-1/2" Hitch
    To secure your BulletProof Hitches 2-Ball Mount for 2-1/2" Hitch # MD254 I recommend the XL Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # SHP2040-XL. This not only stabilizes the ball mount in the hitch receiver, but it also provides a locking hitch pin to help deter theft.

  • Fit of BulletProof Adjustable Ball Mount on 2018 Ford F350
    As long as your 2018 Ford F350 is equipped with the 2-1/2 inch hitch, and the distance from the inside bottom edge of the receiver tube of the hitch to the ground is between 12-18 inches, the BulletProof # MD254 Hitch adjustable ball mount would work great for you. The ball mount provides a 2 and a 2-5/16 inch ball. If your F350 is equipped with the OEM 3 inch hitch, you'd want to use # ED304 instead. You might also consider a keyed-alike locking pin set, part # 34061674-D which secures...

  • Recommended Shank to Fit With Dexter 2-Tang Clevis
    The Dexter 2-Tang Clevis # T1807800 has mounting holes that will line up with the BulletProof Hitches 2-Ball Mount for 2-1/2" Hitches # MD254, but the Clevis uses 3/4" pins while the BulletProof shank uses 5/8" pins for the ball mount. So while the holes line up, the Clevis requires slightly larger pins so it's going to have some play. While this will technically work, the larger pin holes mean they can get elongated over time so I recommend using the Replacement Shank for Curt Adjustable...
