CURT Expands Rebellion™ XD Line with 2-1/2” Shank, Dual-Balls, Pintle, Locks

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. – CURT, a supplier of towing products and hitches, expanded its Rebellion™ XD cushion hitch line to include 2-1/2” shank options and several new accessories.

The Rebellion™ XD cushion hitch ball mount has quickly gained popularity since it was released at the SEMA Show in 2019. Its simple but effective ShockDrop™ design makes it a highly competitive cushion hitch option, offering enhanced comfort, control and confidence for the driver.

Now, CURT is expanding the Rebellion™ XD line with a 2-1/2” shank option #45955 to accommodate class 5 receiver hitches, as well as several new accessories. It's added dual-ball options for 2” #45951 (coming soon!) and 2-1/2” #45955 receivers, accommodating 2” or 2-5/16” couplers and up to 15K and 20K GTW respectively. CURT also added a pintle mount #45950 with standard holes to accept any of its pintle hooks or ball and pintle combos.

For enhanced security, the Rebellion™ XD shank is offering a new key-alike lock set. The lock replaces the clips securing the vertical shank pins and provides extra theft and tamper resistance for the hitch. The lock can be purchased individually (#45938) or as a kit (#45932) with an additional hitch lock included. CURT also introduced an innovative new spring clip #45960 to retain the vertical shank pins (replacement pins #45959). This single clip replaces the need for two traditional clips and works to keep the shank pins secured in place.
