Believe it or not I bought it at a True Value Store in MOAB Utah, I think it's made by Reece. But Fixed not adjustable.

Thanks. Nice configuration. I'll look into it. I need a configuration to hold at least 850-900lbs tongue weight.

Same issue here, poor design on the towing hitch, as it's way too low. I also bought a 3 to 2" reducer and a raised adjustable hitch. However, the max on a 2" is only 14k lbs or so, takes away from the 20k hitch.

There is an option for the raised 3" if you buy a pintle style raised shank and use the ball option on the pintle mount. I believe Reese sells it. The hitch itself needs to be mounted higher though for towing any kind of real enclosed trailer.

Yes. I don't need but about 1-2 (closer to 1) additional height. Thanks for the info.

Thanks for the info. I never looked under the pintle mounts, and on their website if you do not go to the pintle section you will never see this hitch.

I will go to this mount when I upgrade trailers. They have a 3" 25K lb receiver and a 2 5/16 ball mount which is 20k. The hitch is 9" tall so there looks to be plenty of adjustment.

Yeah I did a lot of searching trying to find something better than this 3 to 2 reducer mess. Most people like myself and others don't think about the pintle style because the ball isn't popular. I'm going this route as well. Happy to help.

What kind of trailer do you tow? I've got a 30 now but picking up a new 32 soon.

I pull a 24' H&H enclosed. I'm looking at 26-28' stacker for the next upgrade.

I considered a stacker, but then I'd have a hard time towing it around with my 350 locally. I'd be curious as to how the DX3 would tow a 28-32' stacker with 2 cars. I wish the 450hp option was available for the DX3.

Precisely, sometimes you need your street viper AND your track viper at the same event. or if you want a 1923 & 1939, or twin 69 chevelles, rzrs, rock crawlers. Why can't I travel with a 6 car garage everywhere I go?
