CURT Bulks Up with More 2 1/2” Ball Mount Options

CURT Manufacturing, LLC., the leading manufacturer and marketer of USA-made towing products, has added four new mounts with 2 1/2” x 2 1/2” shanks in the areas of weight distribution hitches and pintle hitches. With the demand for 2 1/2” receiver mounts increasing, CURT is expanding on its previous offering of 2 1/2” ball mounts and added a 2 1/2” weight distribution replacement shank (#17128), a 2 1/2” adjustable pintle mount (#48339), a 2 1/2” forged receiver mount pintle hook (#48010) and a 2 1/2” forged receiver mount ball & pintle combination (#48012). All of these heavy-duty mounts are made with solid steel and are designed to fit CURT class 5 Commercial Duty hitches or any trailer hitch with a 2 1/2” x 2 1/2” receiver tube opening. Best of all, they eliminate the need for a reducer sleeve or adapter and allow for a class 5 hitch to be used to its full potential.

New Towable Shank Gives CURT Bike Racks Towing Capabilities

CURT Manufacturing LLC., the leading manufacturer and marketer of USA-made towing products, has upgraded its hitch-mounted bike racks with a new towable bike rack shank #18008. The towable shank allows for use of a hitch-mounted bike rack, using the vehicle’s trailer hitch, without eliminating the option to tow a trailer.

The CURT towable bike rack shank inserts into any 2” x 2” receiver tube opening and features a 3/4” diameter hole to accept a 1 7/8” or 2” trailer ball. With its integrated bike rack mounting bracket and 2,000-lb. gross trailer weight capacity, the towable shank is able to tow a variety of light-duty trailers while providing secure and convenient bike storage.

More Affordable, More Capacity PML Transmission Pan for the Aisin AS68RC

PML brings to market an extra capacity transmission pan for 2007 to 2012 Ram Chassis Cab trucks. The PML pan holds approximately 25% more and is 30% less than the average price for a replacement stock pan. PML constructs the pan of sand cast aluminum so it is heavy duty. The big Ram 3500, 4500, 5500 work trucks finally have an alternative for transmission maintenance.

The PML pan features thick walls and gasket flange for a secure seal to the transmission housing. Heat in the transmission fluid is dissipated through cooling fins. Reducing heat, the enemy of lubrication, helps extend the life of the transmission. PML designed the pan to clear the cooling line routed next to the stock pan. PML includes a magnetic drain plug and mounting bolts for ease of installation.

The PML Aisin AS68RC transmission pan is available now by calling 310-671-4345 or on their website at The PML part number is 11139.
