I ordered this 2-1/2 inch equalizer shank because I had to use a reducer sleeve on my 2015 Ram 3500 with my 2 inch equalizer shank. I was worried that the Eazlift head I had wouldn't fit but research on the etrailer web site said it would. It fit beautifully! Now I have less slop in my receiver and I don't have to mess with a stupid reducer. Definitely worth the money!


Comments
I have towed my 34 Airstream to New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Nebraska and Iowa from South Dakota. I havent had any problems and I dont feel anywhere near the slop as I felt with the reducer and the 2 shank. It has definitely been worth the money, if you are using the reducer buy this, you wont be dissatisfied.

Much better fit that the stock adapter provided by Ram for a 21/2 hitch. I was having issues with pins bending and hitch receiver pin holes starting to become out of round. I hope this corrects the problem.

Came in quick. Built strong! Just what I needed to upgrade my weight distribution hitch on my camper for my 2021 Ford F-250 with the 2-1/2” receiver.

My new weight distribution shank fits perfectly. The shank I ordered was out of stock. The amazing people in customer service found an alternative option for me. It came today with a few days to spare. Thank you so much you saved the day. I've attached a pic of the old with a sleeve witch we used last year and snapped two pins and almost lost our trailer. The new shank fits lik a glove. I don't think we'll be snapping any pins this year. I've attached a pic of the new shank all assembled.

The drop hitch is solid and heavy. Perfect for my class V receiver.



- EQ90-02-4800
by:

So happy I made the decision to use this instead of the sleeve. Great product, and a great company to deal with. Highly recommend etrailer.



- EQ90-02-4800

Very heavy duty. Fit perfectly with reduced slop. I had been using a 2 inch with a reducer in my 2 1/2 inch receiver. This feels much safer. Using this with the Equal-i-zer hitch. Tongue weight is only 650 lbs., travel trailer is only 7000 lbs. so this is under virtually no stress. Should last a lifetime. Shipment actually delivered two days before the original estimated date. Nice welds, Durable paint high gloss. Weighs nearly 30 pounds before attaching the equalizer hitch.

Right shank for the job.

Ordering this hitch shank was simple with multiple options for shipment. I received the order on the day etrailer gave me. The product was in good shape with no scratches. I installed it with easy and tested it. Works as advertised and this could fit and level my trailer beautifully. I read I should have ordered the shank 90-02-4900 (I purchased the 90-02-4800), but I think that would have been an overkill. I measure the trailer tongue height at 30 inches (Outdoors RV trailer). With my 2017 Ford F-250 with air bags. Improvements: eTrailer should put a note that if a customer is going from a 2 inch to 2 1/2 inch hitch, the customer might want to upgrade to a longer hitch pin, as well.

Very well constructed I havn't used it yet but did switch over my ball mount to it . it was dropped in shipping and should be shipped in a stronger box .


Comments
It works great I bought it to get away from using the 2-1/2 - 2 reducer sleeve in my GM hitch to reduce the slop . It didnt do away with the slop as the GM receiver is oversize . i needed more anyway so it worked out .

This is a thing of beauty! Lovingly crafted of steel with just the right amount of adjustment holes and then expertly covered in gleaming high gloss opaque midnight black paint, the depths of which can only be imagined in your dreams. The square shank has seemingly perfect right angles to mate with your receiver in a gentle but secure manner without lubrication or foreplay. The geometry is sublime and what other shanks can only aspire to. Much poetry will be written about this shank. Seriously, this is a solid steel 2 1/2" shank that correctly fits the Ford receiver. So...no sleeves. I like that it's solid and has no hollow parts but this makes it really heavy. You get what you pay for. etrailer made this a painless purchase and it came with my other hitch parts right on time.

Fits much better than the 2in shank with sleeve adaptor I had. Great service and quick shipping.



- EQ90-02-4800
by:

Upgraded tow vehicle has a 2-1/2" receiver and I was not comfortable using the sleeve for the Hitch shank to pull my 30' camper. Went to the Larger shank which fit perfectly and did the job. Only complaint is that it is that much heavier, which logic says would be so. Order and Delivery was reasonable and prompt.



- EQ90-02-4800

I was delighted to finally find this 2 1/2" hitch. Now I don't have to use the sleeve (2 1/2" to 2") which was very hard to remove. This 2 1/2" shank slides in & out easily & quickly. And the 5/8" holding pin is located in a better position which allows the shank to slide into the receiver further.



- EQ90-02-4800
by:

The service was excellent helping me to find the right hitch shank. Free shipping was an added bonus on too of a great price. Highly recommend etrailer.

Just what I needed to use on the new 2.5 inch receiver. Bolted on the hitch assembly and adjusted. Product was received in perfect conditiin, good package protection and fast shipping.



- EQ90-02-4800
by:

Excellent quality part--finished well and machined holes line up with hitch head and receiver. Turned out to be too short for my application. ETRAILER was great about taking it back on a returned merchandise and shipped the correct one just as quickly

Solves my problem w/ a high coupler trailer and wanting the ability to open my tail gate w/o hitting it on the ball. After working w/ the great support guys at Progress Mfg., this one was determined to solve my problem, vs. the one that their Web site hitch selection tool recommended. Order fulfillment and shipping was super fast and I was kept well informed. Shipping method was actually upgraded at no cost to me. Great product, great service from etrailer.
