Expert Answers about GMC Pintle Hitch


  • Recommended Pintle Mounting Plate for 3 Hitch on 2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty
  • You can use the Super Titan Forged Pintle Hook Plate for 3" Trailer Hitches - 25,000 lbs # RP38186 as the pintle hitch mount to fit in the 3" hitch receiver on your 2018 Ford F-350. This will give you a hitch mounted base to use a pintle hook like the Pintle Hook, Bolt-On, 30K # C48215 and you won't need to use hitch reducers any longer! I've linked some review videos of these parts for you to have a look at, as well.

  • Recommended Hitch and Pintle Setup for Use with 2" Hitch Ball on 2019 Ford F-250
  • It sounds like you're looking for both a hitch for your truck, and the pintle, so we've got exactly what you're looking for. For a hitch with a 2-1/2" receiver for your 2019 Ford F-250 I recommend using the Curt # C15802 because of the durable powder coating that Curt uses on their hitches compared to others. This is a commercial duty, Class V hitch that will be perfect for heavy duty jobs. For a pintle setup that allows you to use a 2" hitch ball as well, I recommend using the Convert-A-Ball...

I also recommend the Buyers Products Tri-Ball Hitch Solid Shank with Pintle Hook And Chrome Balls item # 3371802279.

  • Can a 2" Combination Pintle Hook Work With Both a 2" and 2 5/16" Coupler
  • It would depend on what combination pintle hook you have because if you had something like the Curt Pintle Hook for 2" Hitches # C48190, then you could use it with both a 2" and 2 1/2" coupler by swapping the ball out with # C48830 for a 2 5/16" ball.

  • Locks Needed for the Curt Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball # C45910-15-20
  • You will want to use the Curt Lock Set # C23556 to secure the Curt Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball # C45910-15-20. One pin will replace one of the pins that comes with the pintle hook and the other can be used to secure the shank in your trailer hitch. Please note that any lock can be defeated given enough time and effort/resources. This is not necessarily theft-proof but it will do a great job discouraging anyone from just walking by and taking it.

  • Options for a Pintle Hook to Connect to a Trailer with 8 Inches of Rise
  • As you obviously have already learned there are a lot of variables into building a trailer. And I can't tell you what is or isn't completely safe in your exact circumstances. I highly recommend having your setup evaluated by a professional welder who has experience with trailers. Some of the components you're trying to combine may be just fine but only someone with experience and ability to test such products can really tell you that. I can't recommend using # RP45294 with # C48550....
