CURT 2" Chrome Trailer Hitch Ball
Beautiful ball on arrival! Installed in minutes without reading instructions! Be sure it's tight though... I know that from experience! They work great, but the chrome only lasts until after the first time you use it. I would refer my friends to buy this product, it's 'that good'!

CURT 3/4" Chrome Switch Ball
Works like a charm. Certainly, a lot easier than changing out a ball and torquing it to 250 ft-lbs.
