Our Heavy Duty drop hitches which are capable of towing 10,000 pounds with a 1000 pound tongue weight.
(Note: This capacity is based on the addition of a lateral support system which the hitch has provisions for. The hitches are set up to utilize 3/4" heim joints to be attached on the bottom portion of the hitch support and ran back to the vehicle's frame to reduce the stress exerted onto the vehicles factory frame hitch. It is the responsibility of the buyer to install lateral support to avoid damage to the factory hitch on the pickup.

How to determine what size drop hitch is needed for your lifted truck:
How do I know what "drop" hitch mount I need for my vehicle?
This is typically the BIG question and can vary depending on your trailer. Ideally, you want your trailer to sit behind your vehicle as level as possible when connected. The easiest way to figure this out is to measure the difference from the bottom of the trailer tongue (level) to the inside bottom of your hitch. The difference is the approximate drop you should try to get close to.
If you are not sure your trailer height, then 15-17" off the ground is an average height for most trailers to use. Again, measure tow vehicle's hitch opening. Then the appropriate drop is the difference between that and approximately 16". Example, your vehicle measures 19.5", then go with a 4" drop, that gets you close to the middle between 15" - 17".
We have developed the following chart to better help you determine what size hitch is right for you. Vehicle hitch measurements need to be taken on a level surface from the ground to the bottom of the vehicle's receiver hitch.
