  • Difference In Pintle and Regular Mount, and Availablity of Pintle Mount For 2011 Ford F-350
  • A pintle hitch ball is designed to be used with trailers that use Lunette Rings, a regular or conventional hitch ball is designed to be used with trailers that have couplers. You would typically find trailers with Lunette Rings on industrial or construction type trailers. For a pintle towing setup, you will need a pintle draw bar, pintle ball, pin and clip, wiring, and brake controller. For a draw bar, I would recommend Titan Forged Pintle Hook Mounting Plate, part # RP45294, which will...

  • Large Capacity Pintle Mounting Plate For 2.5 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • There is not a 2.5 inch pintle mounting plate with a 30,000 lb capacity that we currently carry. The largest weight capacity for that hitch size is 20,000 lbs. For that, we have the Curt # C48340 and # C48348. Our absolute largest capacity pintle mount is the Reese # RP38186 with a capacity of 25,000 lbs for a 3 inch hitch receiver. We have pintle hooks rated for 30k or 60 K. These are more direct mount applications. I've attached the link to that page for options.

  • Available Pintle Mounts for 2-1/2-Inch Hitches
  • Yes, we have pintle hook mounts for 2-1/2-inch hitches that are similar to the 3-inch Reese Super Titan # RP38186. All of them can be seen on the page I linked for you. Pintles generally do not have a class rating, just a weight rating. The highest weight rating in a 2-1/2-inch is with the 21K Gen-Y Torsion Pintle Hook Mounting Plate for 2-1/2-Inch Hitches # 325-GH-1301 which has 14 holes for mounting flexibility and a rubber torsion spring cushion to reduce shock.

  • Is There a 1-1/4" Pintle Hitch With 2" Ball To Fit On a 2016 Ford Explorer?
  • With pintle hitch trailers typically being a very high weight they do not offer one for a 1-1/4" receiver due to the light duty capacity of the small receiver. I do see you input your vehicle as a 2016 Ford Explorer which we do offer a 2" Receiver # e98867 for. This would allow you to use a B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook with 2" Ball # BWTS10055. The Curt Hitch # C45910-15-20 you found has a 2-5/16" ball.

  • Adjustable Ball Mount With 1-7/8", 2", 2-5/16" and Pintle Lock Capabilities
  • The only hitch we currently carry that has all 3 ball sizes along with a pintle lock is the Patriot Hitches 5-Way 3-Ball Mount and Adjustable Drop Hitch Adapter # PH94FR. As this is limited in weight capacity to 7,000lbs due to the drop receiver I have a better option for you. The BulletProof Hitches system will allow you to have everything you are looking for with their easy to change removable accessories. First you can select a ball mount system.

  • Mounting Plate Available For a Pintle Hook Which Can Be Used In The Rise Position
  • The Curt Pintle Hook Mounting Plate # C48341 was only designed and engineered by Curt to be used in the drop position. I recommend using the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned, Adjustable Pintle Mounting Bar # AMPC3 if you need a mounting plate for use in the rise position. This mount has a cushion built into the hitch to help reduce shock transferred from the trailer to your tow vehicle.

  • Is There A Ball Mount Coupler Adapter Available For The Blue Ox Trion Tow Bar
  • I confirmed with Blue Ox that the Welded Coupler Adapter for Blue Ox Allure Tow Bar - 2-5/16" Ball # BX88259 does not work with the Blue Ox Trion Tow Bar for Pintle Hitch # BX7520P and that there is not currently another adapter available. If you wanted the ability to swap between a pintle hitch lunette ring and ball coupler then you would have to use the Blue Ox Allure Non-Binding Tow Bar # BX7460P instead.

  • Availability of Bolt On Pintle Hook Combo with 1-7/8 Ball

I have also attached a review video for this at the bottom of the page. All of our pintle hook combos come with a pre-torqued ball so you can just keep your other one as a spare.
