This is the first review I have written, but I know how hard it is to get exactly what you are looking for from the internet so if this helps, then good. I upgraded from a Ram 1500 to a 2018 Ram 2500 and need a new shank for my Blue Ox WD hitch. I had a 7 hole and I purchased the 9 hole hoping it would do the trick, and it did. I have a 25 foot camper with an approximate 700 pound HW (Sherline verified) when loaded. I keep everything the family needs, minus food in the camper. When installed at the very bottom, the hitch was about 2 inches or so higher than the coupler. Once the coupler was placed on the hitch, the truck squatted about 1.5 inches. Once the WD hitch was engaged, the coupler came up about half an inch. The camper is about 1/8th of an inch high from being level. Once the food and the goodies get loaded into the camper and the bed of the truck, I anticipate it being slightly nose down, maybe a few 8th's or a 1/4 maybe. I have no complaints, the shipping was fast and the purchase was easy. This was my first purchase and I will be doing business with etrailer again. 566430

I changed trucks which required a hitch extension piece that would provide for more drop. This part was the OEM replacement providing that extra drop for my Blue Ox SwayPro hitch. eTrailer delivered the product in two days and it met or exceeded all expectations. 301756

I bought this shank to connect my Keystone Cougar 24SABWE to my RAM 2500 Diesel truck. The original shank that came with the Blue Ox hitch left my trailer nose high even when the bottom hole was used in the shank. This item solved all those problems. My trailer rides level and I couldn't be happier. 770995

The weight distribution shank I received has 9 adjustment holes instead of the other one I have and it did the trick when I put bolts in hole number 8 and 9 and it leveled the trailer which made me very happy when towing the trailer handled great.... 659455

  • Advantage of Blue Ox Weight Distribution Shank with Longer Shank
    The longer 12 inch shank on the Blu Ox # BXW4003 is just going to push the trailer a few inches further back from the rear of your truck. Adding clearance between the truck and trailer connection can be beneficial to allow space for an accessory you might have mounted in between or to be able to lower the tailgate on the truck with the trailer still connected (if this provides enough space to do on your particular setup). Other than that there's no advantage in terms of strength or...

  • How to Determine Correct Rise or Drop for Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System
    Determining the correct rise or drop for your Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System # BXW1000 is going to be the same method as determining rise or drop for a standard ball mount. You will just need to measure from the ground to the top of your hitch receiver and from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler, and the difference will be the amount of rise or drop you need. Since it sounds like your hitch sits higher, that means you a shank with the right amount of drop. The...
