Video Transcript for Blue Ox Weight Distribution BXW4018 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution Shank. This is designed for use with Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution systems. It's also designed to work inside of the 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" trailer hitch receiver. This can be used in either the drop or rise positions. This right here would be your drop position. You can flip this over, and this would be your rise position.

With it in the rise position, if you have your head assembly at the highest setting, it's going to give you a maximum rise of 8". With it in the drop position, your head assembly at the lowest setting, it's going to give you a maximum drop of 2 1/2". Now these measurements are taken form the inside top edge of the receiver tip of your hitch, to the top of the ball platform as if the head assembly we're installed on the shank. The unit's going to be constructed of a steel construction. It's going to have a really nice powder coat finish on it. It's going to do a great job at resisting rust and corrosion.

It's going to keep the shank looking nice for a long time. It does come with your hitch pin and clip to get it secured in your hitch. The pin hole diameter right here for the hitch pin holes are going to measure 5/8". This product is made in the USA. When it comes to the weight capacity, it's going to have a gross trailer weight of 20,000 pound and a maximum tongue weight capacity of 2,000 pounds.

A few measurements I want to go over with you real quick. We're going to take a look at the shank length, so I'm going to take measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the adjustment holes. You can see that it's going to have one, two, three, four, five, six, seven adjustment holes. The center on center, the separation is going to give us a measurement of right on 9". Taking the measurement from the center of the hitch pinhole to the very front of the shank, that's going to measure 10". Center of the hitch pinhole to the back of this bar right here where the adjustment holes are.

That's going to measure 8". The front of the shank, measuring this portion here. The overall height start from top to bottom, that's going to give a measurement of 11 1/2". The distance between the adjustment holes center on center, they're going to be separated apart from one another by an inch and a quarter. Now the overall length, measuring from very back to very front, that's going to give a measurement of 13". The distance that we have from the center of the hitch pinhole to the back of the shank to this point here is going to be right on 3". Then from the center of the hitch pinhole to the closest point here of the support. That's going to give a measurement of right on 4". That should do it for today's look at the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution Shank.

Received this item on time and in great condition. Your shipping packaging was first class. Have not had a chance to use this shank yet but I am sure it will do the job perfectly. 463052

Received product quickly, as advertised, and it is exactly as it presented. With this item I am able to bring my Airstream almost level and when my truck bed is loaded with the accoutrements required for our trips I am confident the perfect level will be achieved. The newer trucks seem to all be higher, even with stock running gear. The other reason for this purchase is the correct sized stem to match the receiver without a spacer shim. Much less noise. 547461

Product appears to be quite sturdy; replacing the 2" shank that needed a sleeve to fit the 2.5" receiver. Much less movement now. 176498


Comments

Ive used this to tow for over 10,000 miles now and very impressed with the quality. Fits my 2.5 hitch perfectly. There is minimal movement which makes the hitch more responsive I believe. Less wear and tear on all parts since you dont need to use the sleeve to reduce the receiver down to 2.

When I purchased my new Airstream trailer I had a 1/2 ton pickup with a 2" receiver hitch after pulling the trailer it was clear to me I needed a 3/4 ton pickup so I traded trucks and the new truck had a 2 1/2" receiver hitch. The truck came with an adaptor reducing the 2 1/2" to a 2" but produced more slack than I liked. etrailer did a great job, I received the new Shank 3 days after placing my order and they did everything they said they would do. A great buying experience. Thank you. Gary A. 335842

Fits perfect. Very heavy solid steel. Much more secure than using 2" to 2.5" adapter sleeve on standard 2" shank. 374409

Genuine Blue Ox replacement parts as advertised. Everything as expected and prompt delivery. Couldn't be happier. 338214

Was told here in Alberta that such a part did not exist. After clicking the first search result which was from E Trailer, I found exactly what I was searching for. The 2.5 inch BlueOx shank greatly reduces the amount of play I was experiencing with the 2 inch shank with 2 inch reducer sleeve. Excellent customer service, I received shipment 3 days after ordering. Thanks E Trailer, much appreciated. 263294
