    This is what I have on the silverado.

    B&W Tow&stow, Pintle model. 16,000 capacity pintle, 10,000 standard ball.
    I have had a trailer hitch stolen, so the reciever portion stays in and locked in, the removable portion stays under the rear seat in the cab unless it's being used. The pins COULD be padlocked if you had a small lock, but it'd be too easy to cut so I just keep it put away unless it's hooked to something.

    well, considering it comes off the truck when I am not using it, the only "knee basher" is the mounting portion that goes into the reciever.

    That's impressive!
    I've got a Putnam XDR CL5 and like it so much better than the factory hitch. Towing up to 16k tag most of the time.

    Yah, I thought about the flipover model but my trailer's got a lunette ring and any trailer I borrow from buddies has a 2 3/8 ball or whatever so I just got the 2 that I would be using the most...

    yeah I have seen them...I'm pretty sure Nick can get them to...PM Nor-Cal Nick and get a quote. To be honest I think it might be a B&W product...you have to flip up the license plate to put the ball in...its pretty neat...my bro in law has it on his sierra denali

    I need a 10" drop.

    Any ideas?

    How much weight can that rapid hitch hold?
