Need Ford receiver hitch help please

Hi Guys just bought a 2019 F250. Any the receiver on of the hitch is 2.5 inches and my hitch and ball is a standard 2 inch bar as most are. I contact ford and they said all 2019 f250 now come standard 2.5 inch receiver ends to allow more towing hitch weight. Has anyone else run into this? And what is the solution. Thanks for all any anyone experiences. Thanks Jim

Walmart or any parts store has an adapter. My Chevy even came with one. A sleeve you put inside the 2.5" to allow 2" to be used.

Id check with the dealer. The adapter sleeve should have come with the truck.

Our F350 also came with and adaptor.

Depending on the weight you intend to haul, you may find this article interesting.

As far as the reducer goes, just ask the parts guy at Walmart, Harbor Freight or similar store what they have in stock.

It'll look like this:

My truck came with a sleeve. At the time I was using an equalizer hitch so I got a 2.5" drop hitch so I did not need the sleeve. It tightened up things and I found it was wearing the hitch locking pin less.

Mine also came with the sleeve adapter...but you can't have it!

I leave it in place...with a lock on it, of course!

Anyway, you can buy one or can also get a drop down that will fit in there without the adapter, which if your trailer is really heavy would be the better option.

I think this is called a Class VI (6) receiver...
