Hitch for Dynamax

Does anybody have a source for this massive receiver??? I'm wanting to start towing my vehicle and no one has anything to fit in this receiver... no adapters, nothing. I even contacted Pullrite and sent a picture with a part number and was told they have no idea!! I took this picture from a Dynamax in a parking lot here in Nashville. Thanks

Is it YOUR Dynamax sitting in a parking lot in Nashville?

We used to run a 2 5/16" ball, but if anyone wanted to tow their car, we kept a few 2" balls and then no one would bring them back. So on our new ones I had them install a "double ball"...I'll see if I can get a pic.

JUST an FYI for those people that would like to complain about the ball dragging...we did it as a courtesy, once you figure out which ball you will need you are welcome to get a single ball that would not interfere with your ground clearance Or retain the one that gives you maximum flexibility.

No, it was someone else's DX3 at Camping World awaiting some type of repair. This isn't a ball issue. It's the receiver, its 3" instead of the typical 2"- 2 1/2" .. I will be using a tow bar with I believe 2" insert.

Yep like that! Thanks. Not sure why Pull Rite couldn't direct me on this... said she never heard of Dynamax.. I said thats okay, they probably never heard of you either... :-) thanks for the info. I thought I had every adapter known to man.. guess not.

My Hitch drags everywhere, it looks too me that the the Hitch its self can be be raised a few inches by un-bolting it from the frame bracket and re-drilling the bolt holes a few inches higher.
Again another Factory over site, they knew it was too low when it left Indiana.

I'm not sure I agree with the "they knew it was too low". They're all that height. Normally the air bags raise the back end. And just as an FYI, we can't just drill new holes. That is a tested/rated hitch assembly. We can certainly resubmit a new assembly for testing.
