2 5/16" BullDog vs 2" BullDog

Recommended Posts

In reading the above threads, it was mentioned that one could have Oliver install the larger coupler for no additional cost if requested.

 

Our Elite II is going into production this month (the last 2018 model to be produced, Hull #414) but when I was going over the final punch list, I asked if the larger coupler could be added and was advised that they only put on the standard 2" coupler.

 

Regardless whether I "need" the larger coupler or not is not the issue here.  I want it anyway and am being advised it's not available even if I was willing to pay for the upgrade.

 

Can someone lend some insight on this subject?

 

Thanks, Hobo

If they will not install this during the initial production of your Oliver, simply ask if you can get it installed by the "Service Department" right after delivery.  Perhaps a call to Jason Essary (manager of the Service Department) would be in order in this regard.

I changed out our bulldog hitch for the 2-5/16" to take advantage of the larger hitch platform on the 2500 Silverado.  Did I need it?  Probably, to be safe.  The standard bulldog hitch is rated at 7000 pounds.  The OOII weighs over that. The larger bulldog is rated at 12,500 pounds.

 

You can do this easily yourself, it's certainly not brain surgery.  This is the hitch you will need to order.  You will have to drill the holes in the sides to run the bolts through.
