Gooseneck ball for over 30,000lbs

I have been doing some research on gooseneck balls to see what you need to exceed 30,000lbs. I thought when you went from 2 5/16 to 3 inch ball you could go up to 40,000 lbs. Apparently, I was incorrect because 3 inch is limited to 30 as well. Ford, RAM, and GM all offer above 30k GN but it does not appear you can buy a ball to get there.

I use a homemade hitch on my old truck, and my f350, but I use a 4” donut ball. I’ve hauled over 30k several times and never had a problem. I have both the sleeve style and screw in type.
