Adam E was very helpful. He had information that help confirm the correct part numbers. His response with processing the purchase was quick. Will order again soon.

It's heavy duty!

Quick shipping on an item that was exactly as described.



by:

The product appears to be exactly what I needed. It arrived yesterday and I will switch out from my old hitch shank tomorrow. My old part was used on a taller truck that I traded off and just made the hitch ball too low. This product is definitely heavy duty. Thank you etrailer.com.



by:

This solved my problem. The Reese hitch bar that came with my load distribution hitch did not have the holes I needed to have my travel trailer line up with my ball mount. I used C17100 in the up position and I needed the holes near the bend to have my truck ball one inch higher than my trailer coupler. With the hitch bar that came with the 6000 lb Reese , in the up position and the lowest setting my ball was 4 inches higher than coupler. In the down position my ball was lower than my coupler.



by:

I have not received the shank yet, it is at the border. When I pick up my shank and equalizer hitch and have it set up I will gladly review both products.



by:

I needed a different rise Shank for my new RV than the one I had and the Curt 8" fell perfectly into the range I needed.

The shank is solid steel and heavy and the holes look to be precision machined. Welds look hand done as there is a little sloppiness with some of them but nothing structurally detracting.

You can use this shank in the up or down position so the description that only gives a small amount of drop or rise is a bit misleading. Just know that the max dimension will work for the up or down position.

Powder coating looks good but I do't expect it to last as most of the paint on these things get scratched up in use.

I have the Pro Series Weight Distribution System w Friction Sway Control - Round - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW product PS49903. I pull a 5000# haulmark race trailer 24' with my 2012 ram 1500. I got the weight distribution system and it was great, but according to the instructions, I could not get my hitch ball to 21" at the lowest. So the ride has been ok but I id prefer the ball to be at 21", currently at 22" so I ordered this shank. It has the lowest holes that I could find, however only appears to drop the ball about 1/2". Probably not worth it for 1/2", but I care a lot about my cargo so I thought I would give it a shot. Mind you I have not installed it yet, just put it up next to my current shank and it looks like it would drop the ball1/2"



by:

Got exactly what I ordered! Fast shipping and the website is easy to navigate. With my new truck the old shank even with a shim was sloppy fitting. This one is made for my 2019 and sits nice.



by:

Exactly what I needed.



by:

Perfect height adjustability for my stock, not lifted 2017 Tundra.
And if I do a conservative 4" lift on 33" tires...The hitch Will still work



by:

Very happy with all products purchased for this set up. Dealt with Crystal ( aka CK!). She was extremely knowledgeable on all our product needs. She kept me as a customer and resolved some issues I was having with a prior purpose. Great product and great job to Crystal.

Thank you



by:

by:

Just what the 'doctor' ordered ... Fits well, gives me the adjust-ability to allow use on several different vehicles ... Good quality materials ...

by:

by:
