Thats what I was going to say! I got my 25,000 2 5/16 ball from tsc. If they dont have it I doubt its made. Maybe go to tsc and see who makes that then call the company direct :cool:
Listen to ^him^ after all he is the tow master!!!!! :gearjamin

You will find some pintle hook/ball combos that go as high as 16k but you will not find a 2" ball rated over 10k as there are no 2" couples rated of 10k.

^^^Exactly. No ball to be found that high, since no couplers are made in that weight range to fit it. 6-7k is the highest I've seen for a large shank 2" ball.

Why would you need a 2" ball in that range capacity?

I really like to over kill everything. but I found one that is 10,000 pound it will work. for some reason all the car trailers I haul around run 2 inch balls instead of 2 5\16. I like to run alot stronger than i need just incase.

Yes Curt is good, and if you are worried about the ball you should thing about replacing your factory receiver with a Curt as well.

I plan on getting a goose neck trailer in the hopefully near future. Soooo unless I decide to do pulls with this truck I should be good with my reciever. I have to pull a 98 crew cad ford dually soon, and just always worry that something will break, ya know? I worry alot though
