I added a link to the hitch with 1-1/4" receiver that I have used for almost 20 years. And here's the 'ball mount'. Also rated 3500 lbs. As is the 2" ball.Where you using a 1 1/4" to 2" adapter to 2" ball or where you using a straight Class 2 hitch with a square 1 1/4"?
Using a hitch expander has alwasy been considered a no no. Again, can it be done? Sure. Should it. No.
If you have a straight hitch, with a 1 1/4 square with a 2 in ball, then that is fine. I am speaking of adapters that convert the 1 1/4 square to 2"
I mean, I can get a 2" ball to a 1 1/4 adapter, but would rather have a straight 2" hitch. Main reason I am looking at the torklift vs the others.
I don't think towing with similar rated towing equipment on a Bolt could harm the hitch. But we've seen in prior threads there isn't much solid material at the back of the Bolt to hang the hitch on. When the time comes I will choose that hitch that has a brace going diagonally upward and forward to resist the twisting force of a heavy trailer tongue.
Added: Here's what U-Haul offers with that diagonal brace. I see it's rated 2000/200 lbs. Draw-Tite also lists the identical hitch.
