The longer drop shank gave me the space to open the tail gate on my Ram 2500 without hitting the trailer jack. I am very pleased with the service from Etrailer.

Very happy with this product, as it allows me to open the back hatch of my Chevy Suburban while my RV is still attached. Also, the lower drop allows me to level the trailer so that I don't have to unhook to camp. The speed and customer service provided by etrailer were exceptional. Very pleased and will definitely do business again.

If you need a way to space your trailer from your truck to ease tailgate opening, this is what you want. It is excellent quality and the etrailer crew hooked me up with the exact rating for my trailer and truck.

Transaction went very well. Price was a little higher than other sites but.at.least.they had the product for immediate shipment. Pleased with the experience.

Have towed with this shank coupled through a Husky Centerline weight distribution and sway bar hitch to my Lance 2285 trailer for some 12,000 miles this past year and it has done a great job. The 14" length allows me to travel with my truck tailgate down whilst pulling the trailer - plenty of clearance in turns etc.

Etrailer has been a God sent to me. I was looking for a hitch extension and when I found Etrailer.com and talked with their staff, they helped me redirect my attention to a shank that would work better and safer. The cost was real reasonible and was shipped out right away. If there is anything they can do for you they will go out of their way to make it happen. Very satisfied customer. Thank you Chedi J. and the rest of the staff at Etrailer.com Thanks Stan

great shipping "fast" this shank was perfect to allow the operation of my tailgate when hooked up to all of my trailers .. one thing .. when my Reese dual cam sway control ball mount is attached it weighs in at 65 lbs. ... perfect length ( drop ) for my ram 2500 HD CTD

This does just what I need it to do. I bent a hollow shank 12" extension and knew I needed something stronger. This works like a champ. The length is perfect. My camper cannot quite reach the trailer but it keeps the trailer close coupled. Jack knifing is almost impossible. As always etrailer service was perfect.



- C17122
by:

It's perfect. The only thing I need to do is lengthen my safety chains a bit more (which is no big deal and easy to do) and possibly find a way to lengthen my power cord that plugs into my truck...Not that I HAVE to but it is a bit stretched and making right turns could tighten it up. BUT, other than those few last little adjustments, the shank has allowed me to drop my ball and level my trailer out more, allowing for safer towing! I love it and I have always loved using eTrailer.com for my towing needs!

This extension shank is just as described, Except the actual length from the hitch pin hole to the outside end of the shank is 15 inches. It is advertised as 16". That matters to pickup owners wanting to know if the extension will allow their trailer to clear the tailgate if it is in the lay down position. (it will on my Ram 1500) Solid, welded points done well. Finish is good. The quality of this shank is actually better than the original shank that came with my Equalizer brand hitch system.

Fits perfectly needed a long shank because of the bumper coming out to much from the hitch

Product arrived in three days,great packing. Good quality and works as advertised. The other reviews helped with my decision to give it a try. It allows you to leave your tailgate down so you can load a atv in the back of a shortbox truck and still be able to hitchup and turn with a trailer attached.

This is one sturdy piece of equipment. I needed a lower drop and this unit is much heavier than the cast iron shank I had before. I also like the extra length - the crank on the camper will not interfere with the tailgate now.

Great

This shank was excellent! I did however cut about 1.5 inches off the bottom for more ground clearance after I established where I needed to mount my hitch.

This shank allowed me to lower my tailgate on my 2018 Ram 2500 while still hitched to my toyhauler with an electric jack.



- C17122

Perfect! Works great. Way exactly as de scribed.

Bought the 16 inch shank because we have a 3/4 ton suburban and in order for the gate to open past the power bully winch head. We needed it to be long. Now I have 4 inches to spare. I was apprehensive about length compromising strength, but we towed two hundred miles yesterday with it and it worked great, because of the dimensions were spelled out precisely on the website, I was able to use my old weight distribution system, it bolted right up with no extra parts. We have a tongue weight of 775 lbsand rv weigh of 7500 pounds, no problem and am very please with my purchase.

The length from the receiver was more than I was expecting. But it allows me to lower the tailgate without hitting the jack on the trailer now. Awesome!

This piece showed up on time ind is perfect for my needs. I was not aware that it had as much drop as it does but that is my fault. It will work fine. I received great help from etrailer with the questions I had about the application that I am using.



- C17122
by:

Nice product, for my application I had to cut about 1 inch off the bottom so it would not scrape. The product works as designed, and I'm very pleased with the outcome.



- C17122

It gave me enough room to load my golf cart in the bed without having to remove my tailgate I will repost after out trip this week end
