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.
Before towing, confirm your vehicle and trailer are compatible, hooked up and loaded properly and that you have any necessary additional equipment. Do not exceed any Weight Ratings and follow all instructions in your Owner's Manual. The maximum you can tow depends on the total weight of any cargo, occupants and available equipment
