LF: Stainless steel ball mount with 10,000 GTW
Been searching the web for awhile with no matches, closest I can find is aluminum at 8,000 GTW.

Anyone know of a company that makes these?

I beleive the drawbar standard ball types are only rated to 8,000. Your going to have to jump up to ball pintle combo.

No, standard steel drawbars are rated up to 12,000,
Example http://www.hitchcorner.com/ball_mounts.htm

I may even settle for a SS at 8,000, but the max in SS I can find is 6,000

I've got a Rapid Hitch. (http://www.trailerandtruckparts.com/Rapid-Hitch-_c_28.html) It's all aluminum (except the balls) and rated at 10,000 towing/1500 tongue weight. Not cheap but very solid and well made.

Are all parts of that hitch lockable?
It looks like both the adjusting part and where the ball connects are able to be removed without a lock.

I just bought my "Rapid Hitch" on Friday. :) :) It's awesome, well worth the money !!! Made from Super Alloy Aluminum. It's good to 10,000 lbs GVWR and 1500 lbs tongue weight. I used it on the weekend to haul my dumper to the dump. Very easy to use and built very strong.
Yes all parts are lockable. I had to buy the two lock pins seperate though, at extra cost but I guess it's worth it cause I don't want any of it to go missing !
You don't have to use the lock pins if you don't want just use the pins that come with it if you want BUT I don't trust anyone !!!

Got my rims and tires from that place last year great products. But what I can't seem to find is a stainless steel 2 5/16 10000 rated Ball. The chrome balls eventually the coating wears off then they are rusty and stick when your trying to unhook the trailers

An occasional spray of lithium grease will keep the ball from sticking. It won't help looks much, the only way to keep a trailer ball pristine is to never tow with it.:laugh:

I have one I got from a small accessories shop a long time ago. It was pricey. I always use my combo pintle though.

There's your info/site for higher rated trailering accessories.

I always over-buy on weight ratings. I have three 16,000# Draw-Tite forged ball mounts with 20,000# 2 5/16" balls. 6" drop with our trucks so it's all nice and level!
