The first one they shipped was the wrong one. Called customer service on Wednesday had right one by Friday. Exchange/return was a minor inconvenience. I will give them great marks for their expedient handling as I needed it to set up hitch for weekend hunting excursion. Went from crossover to truck, thus the need for more drop. Went together with hitch head in about an hour and I was on my way. Thanks for the great service.

Part is exactly as expected and came in on time. Price was a full $70 cheaper (including shipping) than direct from the manufacturer. I'm (again) a happy customer.

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


Bought this longer shank because I knew is would benefit me immensely last year as we prepared for about two weeks on the road, traveling from NM to our many destinations in Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana. I tow a fairly light Jayco Hummingbird 17RK, behind a 2018 Toyota Tundra....and this solved the problem of not being able to lower my tailgate all the way, as the previous "stock" shorter shank caused the tailgate to hit the electric tongue jack on the trailer. I wanted to be able to move heavy items (these days it's all heavy) in and out of the truck bed without herniating myself lifting over the bed walls and/or unhooking from the trailer and moving the truck out of the way of the tongue jack for clearance to lower the gate. Perfect solution! And, now with the added convenience of not having to un-hitch on short stops overnight, when we just want to get in the trailer after a long day of driving, before resuming the next day's travels in the morning, is a real bonus. And, this shank is "solid" steel....no channel iron that might be compromised by the load and twisting that's going to occur at all speeds while hooked up. A few extra inches between tow vehicle and hitch didn't compromise the solid connection between the two units....no extra sway or problems with handling and maneuvering, whatsoever. Thanks, etrailer.com---this was money very well spent!

Perfect solution, still! I highly recommend to anyone who needs the room to lower a truck tailgate or raise an SUV rear hatch

My husband wanted this 18" thingy so he could put down the back tailgate on the truck with the RV attached. He took the truck and the RV to our local RV place. For a couple of packs of soda and a big smile, they put this on for him. He could have done it with some effort. But, they had the tools and the time. He is now very happy. He says every time, everything he has bought from etrailer has been the exact product he has wanted. Never a problem.

Totally satisfied with price, shipping and quality. Solved my tailgate problem, while still maintaining the integrity of the Equalizer WDH system. The additional 6” allows me to drop the tailgate while still hooked to the trailer. Thanks for the prompt shipping

It's the fix you need if you want your tailgate down and pull a trailer. Over a year and many miles with flawless results. It's real heavy duty so don't get cheap hardware. Buy the best for the best as you have a lot riding on this thing.

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


I have a 2019 Ram 2500 Mega Cab 6.4 bed and this gives plenty of room for the tailgate to be down for hauling my golf cart. The shank is very heavy duty. As always, etrailer has fast shipping and great resources that helped me to know this was exactly what I needed.

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


I needed the extra length of this hitch shank to get my trailer hitch ball out from under the spare tire on my Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. It works absolutely perfectly and is built extremely strong. I am using with an Equal-i-zer hitch system, but would be suitable for most other weight distributing hitch configurations if the centering between the adjustment holes is correct for your ball mount.

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


Allows me to tow a travel trailer with my tailgate down (2011 Ram). I did not notice any difference in feel when towing compared to my previously shorter shank. There is no issue with the travel trailer hitting the tailgate- the length is perfect. This is much safer than using a hitch extender. The bolt pattern mated to my existing Husky brand hitch head.

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


I have a 2500 gmc sierra short bed and travel trailer. We purchased a golf cart and wanted to take the cart with us as when camping sites allow golf carts. Since my bed is 78" long I have to take the front cover of the cart off ( ezgo rxv) and I have to remove the tailgate because there is not enough room to lower it because of my trailer's electric Jack stand. My original equalizer weight distribution shaft is 12" so this gives me an extra 6" so I can leave my tailgate on and down. I no longer need to take the front cover off of the cart and the rear wheels are completely on the truck. Thanks George

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


I'm now able to open the tailgate of my truck with the trailer attached. Side effects of using the longer shank are; power cable almost too short and original safety chains were too short and had to be replaced. But, the goal to be able to open the tailgate with the trailer attached was accomplished.

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


I purchased this to replace my 12” long hitch. This allowed me to keep my tailgate down and pull my camper. The hitch came in 2 days and took 10 min to swap the head from my Husky Weight Distribution Hitch. Still has the same 14,000lb rating as the 12” I took off. Of course my wife and kids were happy that we were able to take the golf cart for the first time with the camper. Great product! For reference, my truck is a 2015 Sierra 2500HD duramax pulling a 2018 Cruiser Embrace EL280 @ 6360lb dry.

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


Toughest shanks on the planet that we have found for our customers come from etrailer and Equalizer (Progress Mfg). Don't let trying to save a few bucks put your rig at risk like the cast iron drawbar did in the photo below that was sent to me by a customer. If you buy the cheapest shanks, make sure you have good safety chains you will likely need them. Get the best from etrailer, Equalizer.

Can't say how happy I'm am with my purchase experience, good price, quick shipping, and came just as it should. Actually came quicker than expected so was able to use the new truck to pull the camper with.

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


Our new F-150 was a little taller than our old trailer pull vehicle and the lowest setting on our Fastway E2 was a little too high. This was a perfect replacement for the original E2 piece but with extra drop, and let me make the tongue level again. It is really solid and heavy!

I bought the extended shank as we have a golf cart. I am able to tow with the golf cart in bed of truck while towing our Jayco Jay flight with no problems. I have about 2 inches clearance between the tail gate and my electric tongue jack. I have had no issues, even while making tight turns. This is a well built overall a Great product.

Quick shipping. Product as described. The box was partially ripped open, but its a huge chunk of steel in a cardboard box, no big deal. Went from a 1/2 ton Chevy to a 1 ton Ford, needless to say I needed a longer shank. It looks great, very happy.

No problems. I have a heavy trailer 8,000 pounds. A lower quality hitch would not have served my needs.

  • Best Weight Distribution With Sway Control for Scamp 13 Trailer
    We have the perfect option for a your lightweight Scamp 13 trailer for a weight distribution system with sway control that will also allow you to back up with the system connected, which is the following: - Fastway e2 Weight Distribution with 2-Point Sway Control # FA92-00-0450 There are a number of reasons why I really like the Fastway, starting with its highly effective sway control, which occurs via friction at two points on the brackets to keep your trailer from moving.

  • Can a Weight Distribution with Sway Control System be Used on Lifted Truck
    You can certainly use a weight distribution system on your lifted truck. The key will be to find a weight distribution shank that offers you enough drop to be able to tow your trailer level. Weight distribution systems are available without a shank so that you can choose the one that works best for you. For example, if you have a trailer that has a loaded and ready to tow tongue weight somewhere around 1,000 pounds, a system like the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution with 4-Point Sway...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 2016 Ram
    In order to choose the best weight distribution hitch, you will first need to know your total tongue weight. That weight is going to be the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go 2018 R-Pod 180 plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your 2016 Ram. To determine this you can use a scale such as the Sherline # 5780 or by using one of the methods outlined in the help article on determining tongue weight I've linked for you.

  • Does Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System EQ37041ET Come With a Shank?
    The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution # EQ37041ET does not come with a shank. This system has a tongue weight capacity of up to 400 lbs and there are three shanks compatible with that weight capacity, each of which are 12" long and fit 2" hitches: # EQ90-02-4140 offers up to 7" of rise or 3" of drop # EQ90-02-4240 offers up to 8" of rise or 4" of drop # EQ90-02-4340 offers up to 10" of rise or 6" of drop

  • Recommendation For Weight Distribution For R-Pod 171
    When selecting a weight distribution system for your R-Pod 171, the key factor is the tongue weight (TW) of your towing setup. This means the total load of your trailer with all the gear and supplies included. You will also need to add any weight from behind your tow vehicle's rear axle to determine total tongue weight. TW is 10% to 15% of the total weight of your fully loaded trailer. For example: a trailer fully loaded at 3,500-lbs would have a TW of 350-lbs to 525-lbs. Ideally,...

  • Replacement Shank for Equal-I-zer 4,000 Pound Weight Distribution Systems
    For your 4,000 pound Equal-I-zer weight distribution system I recommend shank # EQ90-02-4340. It has the proper hole diameter to mount the head to the shank (5/8 inch). You can also use # EQ90-02-4240 or # EQ90-02-4140. The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank # EQ90-02-4400 has the mounting holes with a 3/4 inch diameter. The head on your 4K Equal-I-zer system should be using 5/8 inch diameter bolts so it would not work with this shank.
