    Since my Tahoe is my tow rig for now and it sits pretty low I would like to finally invest in a good adjustable hitch so that I can raise the ball. I've seen hitches going for well over $300 and some just at $100. Does anyone have a favorite or tips on what to look for?

    I have an Anderson Rapid hitch. Had it for 10 years, still looks great. Be sure to lock it on with a good pin lock. These are a hot ticket to get stolen....

    I lock my mount to the truck and have a locking safety pin for the trailer when I’m towing and have to park it unattended.

    One thing to make sure is that an adjustable hitch like that is designed to be inverted. Some are rated for drop only.

    This is mine, used it for when we moved and no complaints. Looks good too! I have matching, locking dog bones and both size balls. Clevis came in handy when I needed to dead pull a vehicle with 4 flats. Bass Pro Shops carried the line as did Tractor Supply. Ratings vary based on position but if memory serves the other way is 5000 pounds which is the max for most of our trucks without a WD hitch anyway.

    I could have 3 trailers for the cost of that thing. But dang do I want one! Maybe if that second stimulus check comes I can buy that and an angry rotrieler to guard it from getting stolen.

    Love the look of those and the price isn't that bad I think this is what I'm leaning towards.

    It's kinda hard to find if some of them are able to be used inverted or not. But some of them clearly look far to weak to be used inverted let alone as a drop hitch.
