Determining Best Ball Mount to Use on Toyota Tacoma


Toyota Tacoma What is the hitch drop size for this truck?


Helpful Expert Reply:

It sounds like you are looking for the correct size ball mount for your 2015 Toyota Tacoma in order to tow your trailer level.

In order to determine the best ball mount for your setup, you will just need to take a couple quick measurements. Starting on the truck side, you will want to take a measurement from the ground to the top of the hitch receiver, making sure that the truck is parked on level ground. Then on the trailer side, with it parked on level ground, you will measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler.

If the hitch height is greater, you will need a ball mount with a drop. If the coupler height is greater, you will need one with a rise. You will simply choose a ball mount with a rise or drop that is closest to the difference between your hitch and coupler heights.

I have attached a link that will take you to our available selection of ball mounts that you can look through once you determine the rise or drop needed. We also have adjustable ball mounts available, such as the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount # BWTS10037B, that offer more versatility than a standard unit. This particular ball mount can adjust up to a 5-1/2 inch rise or 5 inch drop. It is designed for 2 inch hitch receivers and includes both a 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch hitch ball. The ball and mounting platform can also be easily stowed beneath your hitch for a unobtrusive look when you are not towing.
