flipping a class II drop hitch

This may be a dumb question - but I tried to flip the drop hitch (to make it a rise hitch) on my 98 but it hits the bumper. Anyone know if there are hitches that curve or stick out far enough to resolve this issue?

Shopped around a little but just wanted to bounce it off of this forum to leverage any experience you guys already have.


Thanks!
Tom

instead of the drop one.. did you try the normal one with no drop? any parts store should let you at least try it out in the parking lot before you buy it...

I've got two or three and none hit flipped. They are just regular hitches.

the way the class 2 hitch is, is that they are short shanked due to the weight capacity so you may have to take a smaller drop one and turn it to see if it still hits. I know from experience the class 3 has the longer reciever because i bought one! i've never seen a longer class 2.

good luck.

Not for towing use. For bike and accessory use only.

Says that right on the page

Same issue, good for bike racks and ect. But not for trailers


These Adapters are helpful when accessories such as a bike rack, or cargo carrier have a different size receiver than your trailer hitch.

Extensions help when you need to put more space between your tow vehicle and your accessory
