Rapid hitch or solid one piece forged

slider hitch for 2010 F350. Need a 2" ball on a slider hitch for my new truck. It has a 2.5" opening on the receiver side so need a good hitch for that receiver...

I am not sure what you are asking, but I like the B&W adjustable hitches. They are also made in the U.S.A.

I like the rapid hitch. And then get the reducer piece to get your receiver down to the 2.0 inch opening! Its just at strong at a 2.5 opening and the rapid hitch is good to 10k.

Rapid hitch all the way. The B&W is a good set up as well but, I prefer the Rapid because it has less pins and less slop in it. Rapid has two pins, B&W (at least the one I have) has four pins. Rapid is just a cleaner set up of the two.

This is the one I bought, Its has all internal lock pins so you dont have to keep up with seperate pins like the rapid hitch.

Andersen (makers of Rapid Hitch) make a ton of great products. Personally I use a rapid hitch that I have had for years, but if I had to do it over again I think I would buy a B&W.

This is what I use. http://www.turnoverball.com/tow.asp
I have the 6in drop Tri-Ball and it is the best. I would not trade it for any receiver hitch EVER. It may not be the prettyist but I bet works better than others.
Just my .02s B&W is an awesome company too.
