Ball hitch for 2" receiver

Just picked up a 2017 364TS and want to pull toe dolly with 4K LB car and 12" atv trailer no at same time. What kind of hitch I need? I use a 5 1/4" drop on my 3/4 4x4 truck but I don't think that is enough drop. Looks like I would need 10" the receiver is high on the back. Can I use this?

I use an adjustable hitch which if you look at them they are much more substantial than the one you are looking at to pull 2 1/2 ton and stopping it. Your receiver is most likely rated at 5000 lbs so with the dolly you will be at almost max weight.

MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 10" Drop, 8" Rise - 5,000 lbs Etrailer $59.95
Then I replaced the pins with bolts once I found the proper height.

Ten inches seems like a huge drop. I don't think my drop is that substantial and my 2011 330 sits on the 22K chassis. I tow a Master Tow Dolly. I bought my drop bar at K-Mart and most auto parts stores and local trailer supply stores will have a selection that will fit your needs. That way you can exchange it if the one you go with needs to drop more or less.

Thanks

The back of the 364TS sits high. It's about 4" higher than my reciever on my 4x4 f 250 that I use 5 1/4 drop for. So with the adjustable hitch I can put it where I want for the toe dolly and my atv trailer is a dove tail so back it already low.

Here are some adjustable ones. That way you can adjust it to suit each towed vehicle or trailer.

I believe there are different weight ratings on these hitches. The 5,000 lb is a hollow 2" square tube and the 7,500 lb is solid 2" square.
