Reese Hitch Accessories - 58102

Bushing reduces Titan Class V receiver opening (2-1/2" x 2-1/2") to a Class III or IV receiver opening (2" x 2").


Features:

  • Adapts a 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" hitch receiver opening into a 2" x 2"
    • Works with factory-installed and after-market trailer hitches with a 2-1/2" square receiver opening
      • To use with Ford Super Duty pickups, modification may be required
  • Allows you to use your 2" towing and hitch-mounted accessories


Note: Ford OEM hitches have a tighter/different radius on their 2-1/2 inch receiver tubes. To accommodate the OEM Ford 2-1/2 inch hitch, the corners of a ball mount, shank or reducer sleeve may need to be sanded down to slide into the hitch. Do not remove any more material than necessary. Simply removing the paint or powder-coat is often sufficient.


Never use a grinder to knock-down the corners, which may remove too much material and will also heat the accessory and could compromise the product's structural integrity. This is especially the case with cast accessories like larger weight distribution shanks.

Video Transcript for Reese Hitch Accessories 58102 Review

Today were reviewing part number 58102. This is a Reese Titan Reducer Sleeve. It will take your 2 inch hitch receiver and reduce it to a 2 inch so that you can use your accessories that require a 2 inch receiver tube. This measures 5 inches total length and its 4 inches from this end of the bushing to the center of the hitch pin hole, and then its 1 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the other end of the bushing. This will work with a Ford Super Duty truck model year 2011 and newer, but because the radius on that particular hitch is a little bit different you might need some slight modification. And thats it for part number 58102, the Reese Titan reducer sleeve that takes your hitch from 2 inches to a 2 inch receiver..

This ain't pretty. But size does matter. The 58102 2" X 2 1/2" receiver adapter hits the spot. It fits nicely into the 2 1/2" receiver with, at most, 1/8" space "slap" room. It's almost full length front to back inside receiver providing plenty of support for my 2" weight distribution system without slap. I have not hooked up my Forest River 29'4", 10,7 75 lb. GVWR Puma tow behind R/V but I do not have any fear of this well constructed, perfect fitting receiver adapter. The people at etrailer are there, willing and able to assist you. I have personally found that, if the C.S. Rep doesn't know the answer, she/he will find the answer and report back to you, in my case within minutes. My purchase was delivered (snail mail) within 5 days and In excellent condition. I will report back shortly after a trial run hooked up. 258003

I ordered 2 hitch adapters (sleeves) an a hitch pin from etrailer over the phone because I could not find mine and I wanted to get these shipped quickly before I left on my hunting trip a few days later. I called late in the day, about an hour before closing, but Cathy still worked magic and got my shipment put together and on the truck that night! My items arrived a couple of hours before I planned to leave. Cathy saved the beginning of my trip! For the review of the 2 square pieces of metal tubing --- they worked great :-). This review is for the outstanding customer service I've experienced each time I've ordered anything from etrailer.com, but especially this time from Cathy. 310692

The part itself is just like the way it was described. I have a 2011 F-250, I read in the reviews that the piece wouldn't slide in unless some of the corner were ground down, with this information I didn't think it would be a big deal. I have not used it yet. I slid the part into my hitch and it fit, in my opinion a little too loose, I also slid it into my reciever and it too seemed a little too loose fitting. May have to buy a 2 1/2 receiver instead. 109098

by: Patti W.09/10/2013


This is just perfect. When I bought my new truck I was very surprised that I now had a 2-1/2 inch hitch receiver. Of course my 2 inch hitches and accessories didn't fit plus I had to get another receiver pin to fit the 2-1/2. I will have to say etrailers on-line was a great experience. They had what I needed and the prices were very reasonable. Thanks. I will definitely be back for more trailer accessories. 99359

The quality of this item is good, but there is way too much play between the both the sleeve, the receiver tube, and the ball mount. I would say that my ball moves up-to-down and side-to-side 3/4" at the tip. I am going to have to make some shims just to tighten the tolerance so the receiver won't CLUNK everytime I stop or hit a bump. 24691



- 58102

by: Brian D.10/28/2016


Received this reducer within 4 days of ordering it which was impressive. Installed into my receiver and am very satisfied. I can feel just so ever lightly a little play but nothing that would ever cause me concern pulling our 37" travel trailer. Upon installing the ball hitch into this again very very little play if any. 311706

by: Lucas03/18/2015


It looks quality and I am sure it will last but it fits a little loose. I have a 2011 GMC 2500HD. There is about 3/8" left to right movement at the end of the adapter but I think the weight of the trailer will keep it clanging about. The service at etrailer was top notch. Will definately use them in the future. 179555

by: Walleyehunter09/28/2011


Received item exactly as specified on etrailer web page. Same high quality as the one I already have. Needed another sleeve to be welded on a very large Reese WD shank. Etrailer is alway's customer friendly with quick shipping and reliable products. They really know how to communicate with their customers. 24782

by: Rick S08/08/2014


The part fit up in a 2 1/2" receiver on a F250 without issue, despite multiple reports that some massaging might be needed to fit the factory hitch. Normally, I would give this 5 stars and the product, while not complex, works as advertised. The 4 star rating is due to the country of origin - China. 145099

Purchased this item for my new 2011 F250 that, following the big 3 towing wars, now coms with a 2.5" reciever. This will not fit into stock 2.5" recievers as it has a heavy coating of paint. Be ready to grind paint off to get it to fit into your reciever! We'll see how long it lasts uncoated. 8882


Comments

Newer Ford 2.5 inch receivers use a tighter corner radius than most so these adapters often need to have the finish removed at the corners to fit.

Great Service Living in a very small town we do not have access to even a grocery store. Etrailer & UPS has been a big asset to us in products and delivery. Our most recent order was received in a very timely manner and it even works! The only gripe we have is that it was made in China. 3871

Reducer worked great for my GMC 2 1/2 inch hitch. Received Blue Ox Sway Pro WD 2" hitch with no problems. Used the 2 1/2 inch hitch lock to secure everything in place. Very little movement and fit snug as a bug. Great Product. Fast Shipping. As always Amazing customer service! 132660

by: Pete07/31/2014


Very snug fit into my 2.5" receiver and accepted the 2" drawbar nicely. There is almost no side to side movement which my anti rattle pin will take care of but there is up and down play in it. I think my drawbar isn't quite 2" sqaure because this piece definitely is. 143760

by: Jerry O10/26/2011


Simple but effective. This does the job. A little pricey for what it is. You would think that Ford would supply this part since it would only cost them pennys. Etrailer is a great supplier... every transaction I have done with them has been quick and efficient. 26131

by: David T.02/03/2015


I bought this to use a bike carrier in my 2 1/2 inch Curt hitch receiver. Fit perfectly on the bike carrier and into the 2 1/2 inch receiver. Katie D. did a great job making sure that it would fit without potential modification warned for Ford factory hitches. 172284

by: Jay B.01/20/2014


This adapter saved me from replacing all of my 2" hitches when I bought my 2012 chevy 2500hd. You will need a longer pin, but works quite well. It fits great, but does have a little slack. That may be because my hitch has some wear on it. Works perfectly. 114226

Great Service I recently purchase the trailer hatch reducer and the stainless hitched. Both products are high quality and they fit perfectly. Both items were shipped quickly. Their web- site is user friendly. I highly recommended etrailer.com 4490

I expected the Reese Titan Reducer Sleeve 21/2 Reducer sleeve to be a very tight fit for my stock 2011 F250 Super Duty hitch. Instead, it fit a little too easy with some slop. Don't like the slop, therefore, I rated as only Good. 140768



- 58102

by: Bruce B.04/22/2011


Perfect fit. No trouble at all installing either the pin or my 2" ball mount hitch. A previous sleeve I bought locally wouldn't even slide into the 2-1/2" receiver, but that wasn't the case with the Reese Titan reducer. 12195

Do you have a question about this Hitch Accessory?


  • Is There a Sleeve For my 2-1/2 inch Ford F350 Super Duty Hitch So I can Use 2 Inch Accesorries
  • 2-1/2 inch hitch opening are used on hitches that are Class V, and are designed to haul large heavy trailers. In order to reduce your hitch down to a 2 inch diameter opening on your new Ford F-350 Super Duty you would need to purchase a Titan Reducer Sleeve 2-1/2 inch to 2 inch, part # 58102. You should take note that Ford OEM hitches have a tighter/different radius on their 2-1/2 inch receiver tubes. To accommodate the OEM Ford 2-1/2 inch hitch, the corners of a ball mount, shank...

  • 2-1/2 inch to 2 Inch Receiver Adapter to Accept 2 Inch Shank
  • Yes, we have the Titan Reducer Sleeve 2-1/2 inch to 2 inch, item # 58102. Finally, we have the Diversi-Tech 2-1/2 inch to 2 inch Adapter Kit for DTLBM and DTALBM Series Locking Ball mounts, item # DTADP35, which is designed to work with the Diversi-Tech Aluminum ball mounts and includes a Long-span, locking hitch pin.

  • Recommended Adjustable Ball Mount for 2.5 Inch Hitch Receiver
  • The highest rated adjustable ballmount for a 2-1/2" hitch receiver is rated for 10,000 lbs. So I would recommend going with the Curt Channel Style Adjustable Ballmount # C45900. This adjustable ball mount is rated for 14,000 lbs, and has a rise of 5-1/4" and a drop of 6" and fits 2" trailer hitch receivers. You will then want to use a reducer like # 58102, which adapts a 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" hitch receiver opening into a 2" x 2. I spoke with my contact at Curt about adjustable ball mount...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution and Sway Control for a 2011 Ford F-250 Towing a Keystone Trailer
  • Yes, you could certainly add a weight distribution system and sway control to improve your towing performance, but the systems we offer for 2-1/2 inch trailer hitches are going to be a bit too heavy duty for your particular trailer. The 2-1/2 hitch systems would be compatible for tongue weights up to 1700lbs, but your trailer, even with a maximum load, should only have around 975 or 1000lbs of tongue weight. In this case, I would typically recommend a system rated for tongue weights up...

  • Hitch Reducer Sleeve to Allow Use of 2-Inch Weight Distribution Shank in 2-1/2-Inch Hitch Receiver
  • To convert your truck's 2-1/2-inch Class V hitch to a 2-inch opening for use with a 2-inch weight distribution shank you can use Reese part # 58102. This reducer sleeve is fully compatible with weight distribution systems and other 2-inch hitch-mounted accessories. You can click on the two linked videos for more information. You will also want to check your hitch's safety ticker to confirm it is rated for use with weight distribution.

  • Recommendations for an Adjustable Ball Mount with Multiple Balls and Height Adjustments
  • That is a difficult question to answer because there are so many variables. On bigger trucks with receiver heights well above the ground going with an adjustable ball mount with the most rise or drop would be fine in this case and would be what I recommend. There is no rule of thumb as far as how much space you should have from the ground to the bottom of the ball mount because there are so many things you would have to factor in. Vehicles that are lower to the ground like vans for example...

  • Is Different Weight Distribution Shank Needed for 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch on 2015 Chevy Silverado
  • You do not need to use a different shank at all. All you need is a reducer sleeve, # 58102. It will fit inside the 2-1/2 inch receiver on your Chevy Silverado and the 2 inch shank you already have will fit. I do not recommend mixing weight distribution manufacturer parts because they are not tested together.

  • Trailer Hitch Extension for 2009 GMC Sierra with 2-1/2 Inch Hitch Towing a Boat with In-bed Camper
  • First, the Ford 2-1/2 inch hitch has be known to have some compatibility issues with some accessories. The problem is that the hitch receiver has more rounded corners than a lot of accessories that have more square corners. In the event you run into this issue, what you can do is gently and carefully remove some of the powder coating around the accessory shank until it fits. Do not remove any metal. This will weaken the accessory. The extension length you need is going to be based...

  • Will the Titan Trailer Hitch # 45293 Fit on a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 with an 8ft Service Body
  • I went out to the warehouse and measured the distance between the bolt holes on the Draw-Tite Titan 2-1/2 inch Trailer Hitch, # 45293 and got 39 inches wide on center for all of the hitch attachment holes. I added these dimensions to a photo for you to see. Along with this trailer hitch you will need a 2-1/2 inch ball mount to fit in the receiver opening. The etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit for 2-1/2 inch Hitches, # EBMK25318, would be a good choice. If you have a 2 inch ball mount...

They suggested that your best option would be to get the Reese Weight Dist Shank - Drop Only - 11" Long - 7-5/8", 8-5/8" Drop - 1,400 lbs TW, # RP3344.

  • Extending a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch and Adapting a 2-1/2 Inch Hitch to a 2 Inch
  • The Titan hitch extension, # RP45292, is designed to fit 2-1/2 inch receiver. The other end has a 2 inch receiver opening. If you have a 2-1/2 inch receiver and want to drop down to a 2 inch without using a long extension, you can use a reducer sleeve, # 58102. If you wanted to go the other way, adapt a 2 inch receiver for use with 2-1/2 inch accessories, there is no adapter that will work. If you need to extend a 2 inch receiver we have several available.

  • Hitch Receiver Reducer for Towing a Horse Trailer With Ford F350
  • It is perfectly safe to use a reducer like the # 58102 you referenced. Using the reducer will not reduce the amount of weight the vehicle can tow, but a ball mount for a 2x2 receiver would typically has a lower towing and tongue weight capacity than a ball mount for a 2-1/2x2-1/2 receiver would. Just be sure that the weight of the fully loaded trailer does not exceed the weight of the lowest rated component of the towing system, like the hitch, ball mount, trailer ball, etc. If your...

  • Fit Issue With Reducer Sleeve # 58102 On A 2011 Ford F350 Super Duty With OEM Hitch
  • It has come to our attention that there are fit issues with 2-1/2 inch accessories and 2-1/2 inch OEM Ford hitches. Ford uses a tighter/different radius on the inside corners of their 2-1/2 inch receiver tubes. Some accessories will drop in just fine, but fairly often the accessory will not fit in the hitch, be it a WD shank, reducer sleeve, or draw bar. To accommodate the OEM Ford 2-1/2 inch hitch, it is fine to sand the corners of a ball mount or shank down to get it to slide into...

  • 16k Capacity Pintle Hook and Mount Recommendation for a 2-1/2 inch Hitch Needs 8 inch of Drop
  • For a pintle mount you will want the B&W Pintle Hook Mounting Plate # BWPMHD14005. This mount is 12 inches tall so it should work well to give you the 8 inches of drop you need. This is designed to fit a 2 inch hitch so you will need the adapter part # 58102 to fit your 2-1/2 inch hitch. Currently we don't carry a 2-1/2 inch pintle mount with that much drop so this is your best option. For a pintle hook you would want the part # MT70240.

  • Ball Mount Options for a 2014 Ram 2500 With OEM Class V Trailer Hitch
  • Most of the domestic truck manufacturers are putting Class V trailer hitches with a 2-1/2 inch receiver on their 3/4 ton trucks, including Dodge. This is mainly because they are building their trucks stronger and stronger each year and they need to install the equipment that can handle the higher capacities. You have a few different options when it comes to ball mounts and hitch balls. If you want to use your current equipment, you could use a reducer sleeve like part # 58102. This...

  • Will the Use of a 2-1/2 Inch to 2 inch Trailer Hitch Reducer Sleeve Reduce the Hitch Capacity
  • You have a couple of options. The best thing to do would be to use a ball mount that fits in your hitch. The reason is that you will not have to worry about a reducer sleeve fitting, any capacity reduction, or adding another component in the system. For 2-1/2 inch receivers we have # RP45322, or # RP45323 for an 18,000 pound fixed ball mount. The other option is to use a reducer, # 58102. The hitch capacity should not be dramatically changed so if it is rated to tow the 13,000 pounds...

  • Will the Titan Reducer Sleeve for 2-1/2 inch Hitches Fit on My 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
  • I went out to the warehouse an pulled the Titan Reducer Sleeve 2-1/2 inch to 2 inch, and measured the inside dimension of the one I pulled at 2.068 inches with a dial caliper, I also measured the outer dimension at 2.469 inches, see attached photos I took for you. You mentioned tolerance, and that is an unknown factor. All hitch manufacturers and hitch accessory manufacturers have to stay within certain guidelines, to ensure that their product will work with other accessories on the...

  • Why Does Use of Hitch Adapter/Extender Reduce Hitch Tongue Weight and Trailer Weight Ratings
  • Any type of hitch adapter or extender will have the unavoidable side-effect of causing a loss of about half of your hitch's rated capacity, both its tongue weight (TW) and it's gross towing weight (GTW). Hidden Hitch extender # HE18 and Curt Hitch Extender # C45791 both cause a loss of capacity because they change the geometry of the hitch set-up. The added length of the adapter will allow greater leverage to be applied to the hitch tube by the attached trailer or accessory; this is what...

  • Does Using a Reducer Sleeve that Overhangs a 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Reduce the Towing Capacity
  • It is normal to see some overhang when using a reducer sleeve such as # 58102. A reducer sleeve should not reduce the tongue weight or towing capacity of the hitch. However, if your trailer hitch is a factory hitch check the owners manual of the vehicle to determine if there are any special provisions mentioning a reducer sleeve.

  • Adapter Recommendation for a Yakima Bike Rack for Use in a Class V Hitch
  • Since you have a hitch with a 2-1/2 inch opening you can still use the hitch bolt that came with your Yakima rack designed for 2 inch hitches. You will need to use a hitch reducer for the hitch so that it will have a 2 inch opening. For that I would recommend the part # 58102. You would just need to thread the bolt through the reducer into the rack threads and it would be secured. The bolt in the # Y8780022 isn't any longer than what you have with your current rack so it would not give...

  • Recommended Hitch Stabilizer to Reduce Motion of Ball Mount in 2-1/2-Inch Hitch
  • The Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer # BX88225 works on 2-1/2-inch hitches like yours to reduce motion of the connected item. This device uses two u-bolts that each pull in different directions - one up/down and the other left/right - to steady the connected item. Whenever additional connections are introduced in a system, such as by using a reducer sleeve like the Draw-Tite # 58102, there will always be more potential for random motion.

  • Availability of an Adapter to Use the Titan Hitch Extender # RP45018 with a 2 Inch Hitch
  • I cannot recommend either of the situations that you mentioned for safety reasons. If you were make a reducer for the Titan Hitch Box Extension for 2-1/2 inch Trailer Hitches, 41 - 48 inches, item # RP45018, it would lower the weight carrying capacity of the hitch and the extension, and could cause an unsafe towing condition. A solid steel bar while it seems very sturdy would most likely have less weight carrying capacity than a square tube extension like the Titan extension. The...

  • What Would Cause the Top of a Trailer Hitch Ball to Wear Excessively After 300 Miles
  • If the ball is smaller than what the coupler requires then the coupler would be able to move around quite a bit and wear down the ball. If the ball is the right size then excessive tongue weight could be a factor. The trailer tongue weight is typically 10 to 15 percent of he gross trailer weight. The ball you use will need to be rated higher than the gross trailer weight. You can also lubricate the ball so that there is less friction. Some ball lube such as # 58117 would work well...

  • Will Reese Trailer Hitch Reducer 58102 Fit a 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • If you have a Class III trailer hitch, then it will have a 2 inch receiver opening. When you measure the receiver, make sure that you are measuring just the width of the opening and not the outside dimensions. Take a look at the FAQ I have linked for some additional information. If you do have a 2-1/2 inch Class V trailer hitch, then you could use the reducer sleeve, # 58102. But, I am confident that you have a 2 inch receiver. I have included a link to all of the trailer hitch mount...

  • What Heavy Duty Reciever Hitches are Recommended for a 2002 Ford F-350 for Pulling a 14K Excavator
  • We have a couple of 18K capacity direct fit hitches. They are 2-1/2 inch receivers, so I would suggest getting a 2-1/2 pintle mounts, part # RP45294. For the smaller trailers, you could use a reducer sleeve, part # 58102, and use the old ball mounts that you currently have. They will save you some time and work on the install as they are fit for the F-350 Super Duty. They use factory bolting location so you will not have to do any drilling. I recommend Draw-Tite, part # DT45508. Again,...

  • Availability of a 2 Bike Hitch Rack to Fit Rockwood Fifth Wheel With 2-1/2 Inch Hitch Receiver
  • The bike rack I would recommend would be the Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier, part # S64663. This bike rack can be used in your 2-1/2 inch receiver by using the Draw-Tite Reducer Sleeve, part # 58102. It uses a 5/8 inch hitch pin size which will be long enough to work in your 2-1/2 inch receiver. I am including a link to the instructions on the Swagman bike rack.
