Class 4 goes to 1000lb tongue weight

LINK

I've pulled shite way heavier than 12k lbs with a class 4 and didn't have any problems, but if I was doing it regularly, I'd get a 5.

Hell, I pulled a D5g hooked up to my Ranch hand bumper. Just gotta get it balanced correctly

That's my problem. If I load the trailer I'm using down, it pretty much just is what it is. I'm pretty sure it's not over 12k dead weight but its definitely well over the 500lb tongue weight that all the hitches I'm finding are rated for.

ETA: Oreilly had a class III/IV (what kinda stupid shite is that?) that only had a 500lb tongue weight. How is it class IV but only rated for 500? This is a screwed up system.

Are ranch hand rear bumpers really $500?

I might just get one of those. The damn hitches are over $300

CURT Class 5

Looks like the part # is 229-15525


I've got the pipe rear bumper and it is pretty solid. Like I said, I've pulled a small dozer and all of the welds still look good

Found one on that website. I like this one. First one I've seen with gussets on the mount brackets
