Amount of Drop Provided By Curt Class V Hitch, part # C15845  


Wondering what the distance to top of receiver cross member from frame mount, also Is there a sleeve available that allows use of 2inch ball mount? I checked on the 2inch model and was told it s 5 1/2.....I need about 6inch to clear bumper/step rail on moving Van, thanks

According to my Curt representative, the drop of the # C15845 hitch is right at 6 inches between the top of the receiver tube and the bottom of the truck frame. We do indeed have a reducer sleeve available, part # C45405.

For more drop, a weld-on hitch like # 41990-16 might be your best bet. This hitch has a 2 inch receiver tube, but offers an impressive 16,000 lb towing/1600 lb tongue weight capacity. The distance from the top of the mounting bracket to the top of the receiver tube would be 14-1/2 inches. Because the bracket should be welded to the full height of the frame member, you'll need to do some math. If you deduct the height of the frame from 14-1/2 inches, you'll get the bottom of frame member to top of receiver tube dimension.
