Trailers come in all shapes and sizes and, duh, so do the trucks that tow them. So if you’ve got an odd trailer configuration, or a lifted or lowered truck, finding a proper hitch to keep your trailer nice and level can be a difficult job.

And that’s especially true for heavy duty applications where a hitch has to be, well, dang-near bulletproof. Hence why we thought you might like to hear about Bulletproof Hitches’ Extreme Duty Drop/Rise Hitches.

As the name implies, these hitches are designed to handle pretty much whatever you throw at ’em—Class 4 rated, with a 30,000 to 36,000 pound maximum towing capacity and 3,000 to 6,000 pound tongue weight rating, depending on the specific application.

Bulletproof designs and tests its hitches to exceed rigid SAE-J684 standards. Which is a fancy way of saying they’ll handle a lot of weight and abuse. (Image/Summit Racing)

But beyond their strength and durability, what’s really neat about these hitches is that they’re available with up to a 16 inch drop or rise. That means you can compensate for a lifted truck or a low trailer tongue, and keep your cargo nice and level behind you.

Bulletproof Hitches’ Extreme Duty Drop/Rise Hitches come in 2 inch, 2.5 inch, and 3 inch receiver sizes, with a minimum drop/rise of 4 inches.

Oh, and Summit Racing sat down with the folks from Bulletproof Hitches and chatted for over 40 minutes on all sorts of topics, ranging from Bulletproof’s manufacturing capabilities and standards, all the way to proper hitch selection and basic trailer loading tips.
