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. 399750

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. 231281

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


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. 738279

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. 551524

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. 628531

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


My order (107131659) arrived, but after test-fitting the extended shank onto my vehicle, I only have 6" of clearance on level ground. This will definitely not suffice, given the slope of my driveway. I'm hoping to get some help. What I'm ultimately trying to do is get my tow vehicle & camper trailer's Equal-i-zer hitch set up correct so that the trailer couple and the vehicle hitch ball are relatively level with one another before the hitch is connected (as per Equal-i-zer's instructions). Unfortunately, this requires that I either lower the hitch (which, as I found, results in too low of clearance at the shank), or raise the trailer. Do you have any suggestions? What about an "axle swap," where the under-slung springs are moved to the top of the trailer's axles? Thank you for your assistance and any recommendations you may have. 575939


Comments
Depending on the diameter of your axle tube, it might be possible to swap the leaf springs from the underside to the top of the axle. This will gain you about the diameter of the axle as a gain in height. For a 2-38 inch diameter axle, use part K71-384-00 or for a 3 inch diameter axle, use K71-385-00.

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 735122

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. 849861

Ask the Experts about this Equal-i-zer Accessories and Parts

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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
