Video Transcript for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution EQ90-02-4500 Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Fastway Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank. This is designed for use with Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems. It can be used in either the drop or rise positions. The unit's constructed of a really nice sturdy steel construction. It has been dipped for rust and corrosion protection. Nice solid shank on the unit.

A really nice thick support bar as well. When it comes to the welding, it's got really nice, clean welds. The unit is made right here in the U.S.A. The shank portion, that's this area right here, this is going to be the area that slides into the receiver tube of the hitch on the vehicle. To secure it, you will need to use a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock. Those items are sold separately.

They can be found here at etrailer.com if you're interested or in need of that. The unit will accept a standard five-eighth-inch diameter pin. Again, made in the U.S.A., and it is designed for two-inch-by-two-inch trailer-hitch receivers. The shank is going to use, excuse me, it's going to offer a gross towing weight of six thousand pounds to fourteen thousand pounds. Tongue weight is six hundred to fourteen hundred pounds. If you're using this in the rise position, just like it's being shown now, with your weight-distribution head assembly at the highest setting, it's going to give you a maximum rise of seven inches. That's measuring from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch, so the top of the ball platform on the head assembly.

If you're using it in the drop position, and if you have your head assembly at the lowest setting, it's going to give you a maximum drop of three inches, doing those same measurements. The unit offers six adjustment holes. The distance between those holes on center, right here, is going to be an inch-and-a-quarter, so that's your incremental height adjustment. Taking a look at the overall length, measuring edge to edge, so that's going to give us a measurement of right around eighteen inches. If we measure from the center of the hitch-pin hole to the center of the adjustment holes, that's fourteen inches; to the front of the unit is fifteen inches; to the back of this bar is thirteen inches. From the center of the hitch-pin hole to the support bar right here, five inches, and then to the base of the weld for that support is about four-and-a-half inches. That's going to do it for today's look at the Fastway Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank..

Easy switch over to longer shank . No major adjustments on WDH setting Now can open tailgate all the way. Did need to lengthen safety chains.

Longer hitch shank has been great. No difference in towing. Able to open tailgate fully.

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

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.

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.

This 18” shank worked great for extending the space in order for me to be able to lower the tailgate on my 2022 Silverado 2500 while the camper is connected.

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

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.

I had a very unusual situation in that I had installed a motorcycle loader in my Tundra which extended the ramp and cycle 2 feet beyond the bed of the truck. When I attempted to hookup to my travel trailer there was not enough distance from the rig in the truck to the jack and propane bottles so after trying a few options etrailer sent me this long (18" shank) and it fixed my problem. I have since sold that rig and am back to a shorter shank but this worked great. Put the trailer way back but still pulled nicely.



- EQ90-02-4500
by:

This was just the part I needed to allow me to open my tailgate with the trailer attached. One caution: Ford's trailer back up system doesn't work with this. It puts the ball too far away from the back of the truck. When I was looking for this, all I could find was a different one. I ordered that and found it didn't work. But no returns. Got the part number from Equalizer and ordered this part. Kind of expensive when you figure I basically paid for it twice.



- EQ90-02-4500
by:

Works as expected. This shank allows for extra clearance between back of truck and hitch. Clears the bumper mount for my spare tire on the back of the truck.



- EQ90-02-4500
by:

I needed to extend my WD Shank so I could open my tailgate. It did what I wanted and is as strong as the original. Only draw back is the hitch sticks out farther when not towing. When at the camping site I remove the hitch and stow it under the A-frame with the HITCHPORT. I cover it with a power jack bag to keep from brushing against it.



- EQ90-02-4500

It worked great moving the hitch away from the bumper. Now I can leave my spare tire in place on my bumper swing arm when I tow my trailer. Thanks for all of your help!!!!



- EQ90-02-4500

Works great! With the extender, I am now able to lower the tailgate on my pickup, while the travel trailer is still attached. On my 2015 Chevrolet Silverado, I didn't need the extension. However, with my 2018 Ford F150, I needed the clearance and this works.



- EQ90-02-4500

Ordered a trailer hitch shank in a longer length (18" instead of the original 12") to provide more clearance for opening my tailgate when my travel trailer is attached. Service was excellent, arrived when promised and in good condition. Item was as advertised and of good quality.

Received this item yesterday on 10/25/2018 and put it on today 10/26/2018. Everything was 100% correct. This item was needed to allow my tail gate on this 2017 Tundra to open without hitting the lift post. Your service was outstand and I am considering replacing the mirrors at a later date. Thanks, I'll be back.

Should work out just fine for what I need, had to move the trailer back a few inches so I could open the tailgate with the trailer still attached and this shank will let me do it.

I have ordered from etrailer numerous times, and have yet to be even the slightest disappointed -- they are always fantastic and ship fast! This particular product allows me to open the tailgate of my truck with my travel trailer hooked up and not worry about hitting the trailer jack. Swap out was easy -- replaced the shank from my Fastway e2 with this shank from Equal-i-zer -- direct swap of components. To anyone reading this review -- do remember to also lengthen or get longer safety chains if you upgrade to a product like this!

I needed to extend the hitch so that I could open my truck tall gate while hooked up to my travel trailer , this gave me another 6 inches and was just what i needed

Haven't installed yet. Ordered this to replace stock shank which is 12 inch long. needed some extra distance due to configuration of new camper. ETrailer price was about $40.00 cheaper than ordering it from Equalizer. Arrived fairly quick.

  • Can a Hitch Extender be Used With Weight Distribution System

  • Hitch Extender Solution for Setup with Weight Distribution
    The install of the weight distribution system you mentioned will add a bit more clearance between the trailer hitch and trailer so you'd gain a bit of clearance there.

A hitch extension like the part # RP11004 that you referenced can't be used with WD systems so the longer shank is the way to go if needed.
