THE BALL IS SOLD SEPARATELY. The ball mount is a mechanically engineered structural component, designed specifically for use with Toyota tow hitches in order to accommodate the drop or rise needed to match the tow-hitch receiver to a trailer. The ball mount features a protective paint called electro-deposition coating or "e-coat" to help protect against corrosion and the environment, along with a powder topcoat to help protect against UV rays and maintain its long-term appearance. All Toyota ball mounts meet or exceed all industry towing standards.Ball Load Rating: 11000 lbs. Drop: 2 Inch Rise: 4/5"
