Adjustable Ball Mount that Reduces Rattle In 2-1/2 Inch Receiver


Do you have any adjustable ball mount product that Does Not rattle while matted to a 2.5 class V receiver? Also, whats suggested for a stock 2014 Ram 2500 4x4 matted to trailer hitch height 16


Expert Reply:

All ball mounts will rattle a little or you would not be able to fit them inside the receiver. I recommend part # DTSTBM6625. It has an adjustable pin in the top of the shank that protrudes through the adapter that prevents rattling. The attached balls measure 2 inches and 2-5/16 inches. I have attached a photo that shows where the adjustment is made to tighten the ball mount once it has been installed in the receiver opening.

However this ball mount has a 6 inch drop and 7 inch rise with increments of 1 inch for adjusting. We are not going to have an adjustable ball mount for a 2-1/2 receiver with a 16 inch rise/drop. The largest rise/drop in the size we have is 10 inch drop/11 inch rise # WS10-25.
