The ball is 2", as far as the frame brackets, the frame is 4" box, but the drop is what determines your bracket number. Mine were too low and I stopped at the factory in Idaho on the way to the rally in Osoyoos, they replaced mine free with the correct size. What I'm saying is do not get the universal bracket, but the one made for your trailer. You need to ask Andersen what brackets are available.

sorry, i'm sort of lost... are you saying based on this:
http://www.andersenhitches.com/uploa...ide%202015.pdf
because from ground to top of frame is less than 18", I cannot use the universal?

Thanks!

I would get the 4 3/8" bracket, it will fit your frame exactly, which is what you want.

Also, talk to Anderson about shank length. The standard one is too short for most to either lower a tailgate on a truck or open hatch on an SUV without it hitting the jack.
