This was the right size drop shank to level out the Airstream trailer using existing Fastway e2 Hitch (trunnion) hardware behind a 2013 Ram 2500 with 6" lift and 37" tires.

Perfect. Delivered very fast.
Sorry
no pic at this time. Moving hitch ball and set up.

Thank you.



by:

I have a brand new 2022 tradesmen 2500 all stock no upgrades. The other truck was a 2016 ram 3500 Laramie dually. I took my equalizer hitch set up from the 2016 to the 2022 it became way to high so I had to get another shank so I could get it lower. Now it's a couple inches two low with no more adjustment. And with a 2 1/2 insert their is a lot of slop play. No I would not recommend this shank for the slop movement. A waste of 200.00

Great job getting this shipped out. Package came well packed and left your facility quickly. Had a hard time finding this in stock locally so turned to the internet. Love all the video reviews you guys do on products. Keep it up. Was able to find the info I needed for this product on your website (more info here than on the manufacturers site). Thanks again

Fast shipping! Great follow up!



by:

Have a 2500 4x4 Ram with a 6 inch lift on 37 inch tires and this drop shank brought me down low enough to pull my camper.



by:

The product is exactly what I ordered and needed! It was easy to find on the website, easy to order, and it was delivered very quickly. I would definitely use etrailer.com, again!

  • Can Equal-i-Zer System for 2 inch Hitch be Adapted to 2-1/2 inch Hitch with Shank Swap
    You will only need to replace the shank of your Equal-i-Zer system with one that fits the 2-1/2 inch hitch size and also provides you with the correct amount of drop to tow your trailer level.

  • Weight Distribution Shank For 2-1/2 Inch Hitch With Drop For Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Hitch

But we do have an option from Equal-i-zer (who manufactures Fastway) that fits a 2-1/2 inch hitch and offers up to 12 inches of drop: - Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank - 2-1/2" Hitch - 12" Drop # EQ34FR This shank has the most drop available...

  • Recommended 2-1/2 Shank For Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Hitch With Around 10 Of Drop
    You sure can! Weight distribution shanks are not brand specific, you will just need to make sure you use a shank that is the same style as there is two different styles. Based on your picture you will need the # EQ34FR that fits the 2-1/2" receiver on your new Ram 3500 and has 12" drop. The next closest drop available is the # C17132 which has 9-1/4" of drop. I included videos for both of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.

  • Can You Get Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System with More Drop
    The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems like part # EQ37101ET are actually offered without the shank for situations where more drop is needed. These can then be paired with our drop shanks like the Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank part # EQ90-02-4200 for up to 4" of drop. I have attached our list of shanks and systems below.

  • Are Equal-i-zer WDH Heads Interchangeable With Differnet Capacity Springs
    Equal-i-zer weight distribution hitches use different heads for each capacity so you would need to completely swap out the entire system in order to meet the GVWR of your trailer. If the system you have is all original then the head and spring bars would also be rated for 10,000lbs like the shank is. If you bought it used or swapped anything out then you would need to find the item number sticker on each part to determine what they are and their capacity. To determine the best replacement...

  • Best Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Hitch for 1,150 lb Tongue Weight and 2-1/2 Inch Hitch
    We can definitely get you set up correctly, and let's start with the Equal-i-zer itself, and this is absolutely the best overall choice for a weight distribution hitch for a number of different reasons. First is its sway control system, which is exceptional relative to other systems because it uses 4 points of sway control via friction in the spring bars and head unit (compared to 2 points on other systems), which ensures you never have to worry about your trailer swaying. It also uses...
