Heavy duty trailer hitch

I just bought a 92 YJ and I am having trouble finding a heavy duty trailer hitch. I want to mount a dirt bike carrier to the hitch reciever but need a minimum 500 pound tongue weight. All I can find are class one hitches. I need a minimum of a class three if not a class four. Does anyone know where I can find one? Thanks for your help

Got mine at Quadratec. It's a 3500 lb tow rating w/350 lb tongue wgt rating, but I've pulled a 16" trailer with 450-500 lb tongue wgt with no problem. It's a 2" receiver. This should work just fine for you. Costs about a hundred dollars.

Hope this helps...good luck.

*sigh* he really needs the class 4 rating.. i dont think you're going to find one because i believe that 500 lbs is enough to make the front end pop off the ground.. if you really want to carry a dirt bike w/ your jeep, your best bet will be to get a flatbed trailer..

I would definately go with a trailer.I towed a motorcycle plus gear when I moved from Florida to Boston.Properly set up I couldn't tell it was back there except when stopping.
National Tool and others make 4x8 folding trailers cheap.I fold it out of the way when not in use and use to haul everything.Lets faceit NOTHING fits in a Jeep.4wd.com has them for about 100 bucks

Thanks for the advice. I think the folding trailer is the way to go.
