Any heavy duty trailer hitches for the burb?
 
Hey guys,
I'm trying to find a hitch that's capable for over 10k pounds. Can anyone steer me in the right direction? I'm only finding the hidden hitches that are 5k at the most. Thank you.

I got a B&W, it's a class 4 rated for 16,000 LBS I believe.

Oh really? That's a great poundage.

Just installed the B&W yesterday. I couldn't get it in the place I think it is supposed to be since I have a bigger gas tank. I got 4 of the 6 bolts in and I have to make a spacer for the middle bolts positions and I think some longer bolts for that spot.

even though it says 10000 # im leary ?? i have seen these hitches on the burbs pass me & i swear ive seen movement on the hitch - like the rear frame is flexing !!!! any side frame rail plates to stiffen frame -will sure help on this application! a few yrs ago all these hitches -were fabbed up at a hitch shop-and they had some more tubes going forward to stiffen them & tie in to the front gas tank area ! {!my 2 cents worth }

mAn that sure doesn't look like a 10K lb hitch to me. And even if the hitch can carry the load you're asking a LOT from the 6 bolts and frame. needs more structure as mentioned above.
