Adam E provided amazing customer service during the entire process. I was out of town and needed this product the next day in order to continue our trip. He tracked the shipping status and provided me with real time updates throughout the day. It was delivered earlier than expected and was the exact product I needed to fit my needs. Thanks Adam E. I truly appreciate it.


Just what I needed to raise the front of my trailer to look level while towing my car. It just doesn't look level, it's level to within a quarter-inch (a good bit of luck there).
Product appearance is excellent. If anything, it makes my hitch look old.
A good purchase.


Very nice stainless ball that helped add height I needed not wanting to go all lift with a hitch. Would by this brand every time. Quick shipping too. Thanks.


Product is very well made and even in the USA. I was very impressed with quality. I was very pleased on how quick I received the 2 5/16 hitch balls.


Looks like exalant quality. I pull a 28’ trailer and I needed clearance between the receiver and the tourtion bars. Works great and salved my problem. I need the hi capacity I could only find 5000# was glad to find 25000#


I have not yet installed this but it will be fine. It appears to be machined very well. It measured exactly what I calculated to be able to lower my WD hitch head and keep the ball height were I needed.


etrailer really has their act together when it comes to shipping , my last few orders have been delivered in 2 days .

As far as rating the product , kinda hard to do since i haven't gotten to use it yet , literally got home and opened it 3 hours ago . Maybe etrailer shouldn't be so efficient in asking for reviews ?

But I expect it to be like everything else I have gotten , good quality and reasonably priced which, coincidentally , is the reason I'm a repeat customer .


I received my shipment on time and in good condition. The hitch and ball fit with the correct measurements I needed and looks to be built with high quality but I haven’t pulled my trailer with it yet to rate how it works. I hope to do that soon.


The heavy duty hitch and other parts that I received from etrailer were exactly what I ordered and at a good price. The delivery was fast and nothing damaged. Thanks etrailer I will be buying from you again.


Fast shipping. Good price, cheaper than buying another receiver to achieve the right hitch ball height. Appears to be of very high quality . Will follow up if I encounter any issues.


This hitch ball is exactly what I was looking for. I gambled on it for a special use project, and it fits perfectly. Always happy with the quality and selection from etrailer.


Absolutely awesome. Best quality ever. I love etrailer they have everything you need. Best service and best prices. Thank you again guys.


I've ordered 3 times Always had great experience.


Website was easy to navigate. Price was great and I received my order in only a couple days. I will definitely keep etrailer in mind next time I need something.


Have not tried the hitch ball yet but the delivery time and price were good .


Well built, heavy duty very strong. Just what I wanted


Great hitch ball, solid and high qualit y!


Good Pricing and prompt delivery, but part of my order was miss picked, requiring me to spend more time and effort to return / make customer service call etc. to resolve. so the quick delivery ended up being not so quick as part of the order had to be re-shipped.


Always top quality and great prices. And the FAST!


This company always deliver for me!


Just what I was expecting. Will install this week to make sure it does what I am anticipating.


Awesome product. Installed it the same same day. Exactly like described.


Great product at an excellent price. Thank you!


Works good. Use daily


Ordered on Tuesday; received it Saturday; can't ask for more than that! Thank You!

  • Dimensions Of Curt 2-5/16 Inch Hitch Ball With 2 Inch Rise
    I pulled one of the Curt Hitch Balls, part # C40087 from our warehouse and took a couple of measurements for you. I have attached a photo of the hitch ball with the dimensions noted. As the photo shows, the 2 inches is measured from the top of the shank to the edge of the hitch ball body at the point it starts to flare. This is a 2-5/16 inch diameter ball and the shank diameter is 1-1/4 inches and 2-5/8 inches long. this hitch ball has a capacity of 25,000 lbs.

  • Difference Between Chrome Plated Steel Hitch Ball and Raw Steel in Terms of Corrosion Resistance
    A chrome finish ball # C40036 is going to look good but it will not be corrosion resistant. A ball with a machine finish like # C40087 , is going to have about the same corrosion resistance. In terms of performance they will wear at about the same rate under normal use. The best balls in terms of corrosion are going to be stainless steel

  • 2 5/16 Ball w/ 1 Inch Diameter Shank Raised Tow Ball
    I have a solution for achieving the height of the 2-5/16" Hitch Ball w/ 2" Rise - 1-1/4" Diameter x 2-5/8" Long Shank - Raw - 25K item # C40087 you were looking at but there aren't any high rise 2-5/16" hitch balls with a 1" shank. However, the top of the Curt RockerBall Shock Absorbing 2-5/16" Hitch Ball - 1" Diameter Shank - Chrome - 7.5K item # C82KR sits 4.6" above the ball mount. The high rise you were looking at sits 5" above the ball mount.

  • Adding Rise to a Reese Round Bar Weight Distribution Hitch
    I recommend adding a shank with a taller rise. The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank item # EQ90-02-4300 has a 10 inch rise. This shank has a 600 to 1,400 lbs tongue weight and is compatible with Reese weight distribution systems.

  • Selecting a Ball Mount for Use with Curt 2-5/16-Inch Hitch Ball # C40087
    The Curt 2-5/16-Inch Hitch Ball with 2-Inch Rise # C40087 requires a ball mount with a ball platform that is at least 3/8-inches thick and that has a 1-1/4-inch ball hole. A ball mount that fits this requirement is the Curt # C45456 that fits into 2-1/2-inch hitches. If you need a 2-5/16-inch hitch ball and the ability to raise the height of the hitch ball relative to the trailer coupler you can go about this in another way. You can get the height increase you need from an adjustable ball...

  • Available Hi-Rise 2-Inch Hitch Balls
    We have Brophy hitch ball # CB28Z which is a 2-inch ball with 1-inch of rise. This ball has a 1-1/4-inch diameter shank that is 2-1/2-inches long. We also have Curt 2-inch ball # C40034 which has a 1-inch diameter shank that is 2-1/8-inches long. This can be used with Reducer Bushing # F-2. If you cannot find a hitch ball that matches your requirements you might just change out your ball mount to one with 2-inches more rise or use an adjustable one.
