How Much Clearance From Hitch Pin Hole on Patriot Hitches Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver.
Hi, I have a 2018 dodge challenger I already installed a hitch but now I need a riser of at least 10. I am looking at this one item # ph67sr. My only concern is if it will clear past the bumper on my car.

You will want to measure the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper. The Patriot Hitches Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver Adapter # PH54FR has 3-1/2" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the angled brace for the shank, so you're going to need at least that distance from your bumper to the hitch pin hole.
Since this doesn't come with any security features, I do recommend adding a hitch lock like the InfiniteRule Hitch Lock for 2" Hitches - 2-5/8" Span - Stainless Steel # 34061071-D, which will secure the ball mount to your vehicle.
If you find that you don't have enough room for this, let me know and I can recommend an alternate solution. I've also linked all of our rise/drop ball mounts for you if you are looking for something in particular.
