Web page was good. Just to make sure I called. All my questions were answered completely. The shipping was free and arrived fast , and when they said it would. I received a follow-up e mail to make sure there were no problems. etrailer.com could teach a lot of other companies what customer service is, and how it is supposed to work. Exceeded my expectations. 771794

Figured out on Saturday what type of anti-sway hitch I needed to order, receive and install by Wednesday night. Tried another site, they couldn't meet the deadline, turned to google and discovered etrailer. Called at 1 PM on Saturday and talked to Steve Z, he got the order placed, and promised to check the status and follow up with me on Sunday. Everything was delivered on Tuesday and that night the hitch was installed, a day ahead of schedule. I don't expect to have a high need for towing / trailering, but when I do I'll be checking and calling etrailer first. On a scale of 1 to 10 their customer service is a 15. 426870

It was exactly what I wanted and well worth the wait to get it. It removed a lot of movement in my hitch assembly. Anyone using a sleeve with a 2" shank should get this. Thank you again for helping me tow my camper easily. 361536

I needed a new drop shank to set up my E2 hitch due to a move from a F150 to my new F250. (2.5" shank and 6" drop) After a chat with Tiffany on the website we figured out what I needed and I placed the order. The only reason for 4 stars is having to pay 2 day shipping when "free shipping" had the same delivery date. Thanks for great info and help! 666446

This is exactly the product I needed. It's heavy duty, fits a 2 1/2 inch receiver and get's the job done. Etrailer ships fast. Thanks 303718

Had the shank in 2 days after I ordered it. Perfect fit for my 2016 Dodge Ram. I was using the sleeve to fit my Ram and there was to much slop for my comfort so that’s why I ordered the larger shank. Excellent product and I highly recommend going with the larger shank instead of the sleeve. Money well spent. 538981

Just the right hitch I was looking for. Perfect amount of drop I needed to level out my 33" Travel Trailer on 2016 Ram 2500HD. 398905

Chose the 2.5” to eliminate the need for the sleeve reducer. I needed the 12” shank to accommodate the stock height of my ‘18 Ram 2500. The 9” drop allowed for almost perfect leveling of my TT. 681298

Just purchased Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD 4X4 and realized after purchase that the trailer hitch was now a 2 1/2" receiver instead of a 2". I tried using the old 2" shank/drop sleeved to 2 1/2" and it was a pain keeping holes lined up to pin to the hitch. I had the sleeve tack welded to the 2" shank and the welds broke the first trip out. The Equalizer 2 1/2" shank to 2" drop was just what I needed. I bolted my old Weight Distribution hitch to the new drop and took my 30ft travel trailer for a spin no worries. Great purchase. Delivered promptly and in good condition. Customer service was fantastic. Shopping at etrailer.com was easy. I'll be back 666419

Extra drop worked perfectly. Appears to be well built. Just completed a 5000 mile trip pulling a trailer and everything functioned as it should. Only negative is the paint does not hold up well. 573183

Equalizer is an excellent product, I would recommend their products if you are looking for best towing performance, quality and safety. This is all high grade and quality control. I drive a 2014 ram 2500 Hemi 5.7 with my family and pull a Prowler 29 foot trailer 7,500lbs dry. I purchased the entire equalizer weight distribution kit and noticed a significant different in tow control and safety. There are also detailed instructions and customer service at etrailer or equalizer can help you solve more detailed questions. 670511

This worked great to get the hitch ball down to the right height on my 2016 Ram 2500 to our 26u Airstream. It is also 2.5” so no adapter was needed in my receiver. 642124

I upgraded my truck from a Ram 1500 to the 2500 and need a bit more drop and wanted a 2.5" shank so I didn't have to use a spaced that just adds extra play and noise for my weight distribution hitch. I actually have the Husky Centerline TS setup but this was a direct fit for me and did exactly what I needed it to. 691531

Although the Quality of this item is great I ended up having to order another drop shank . This is listed as 6" of drop, but the Blue Ox Sway Pro head is 8" from the top of the ball to the bottom bolt. Which ends up with only 2" of total drop on the bottom hole. I have a 2018 Ram 2500 4x4 and needed 3 1/2 to 4" of drop to get my trailer level so I have now ordered the Curt C17132 which should get the extra drop. These are both for 2 1/2 " receivers. 653409

There is a little too much sideways play than I expected (of the insert into my receiver) , considering the cost of the unit. Other than that, I am happy with the hitch. 251468

When the original manufacturer of my Husky weight distribution hitch couldn't or wouldn't help me with my new truck requirements, I got a taller truck, etrailer's awesome customer service found a perfect alternative. Equalizer brand makes a 2.5 inch to 2 inch drop hitch shank and the kind folks at eTrailer were knowledgeable and helpful and found I exactly what I needed 422652

Product is great only regret is I should of order 8” rise with 4” drop would have been perfect. Great heavy duty product. 853081

Got this shank to replace the 2" shank my new truck has a class V hitch that has a 2.5 " receiver. Came on time and works great on my RAM 2500.2016 852807



- EQ90-02-4900
by:

Just got a new F350 to take over towing duties from my older 2001 F250. However, the larger receiver on the Class V hitch meant it was time to rebuild my Equalizer WDH. Etrailer has always made shopping convenient and allows me to purchase with confidence that I’m buying the right part for the right application. Their customer service is great, but the product descriptions are so informative, you don’t need help. Thank you again for my latest of many purchases. 817602

Exactly what was needed for my 2015 F250 to say farewell to that annoying insert sleeve! Should of bought this years ago. 801803

I got this shank to go with my Silverado 2500. It is perfect! Etrailer was great. I've purchased a number of products from them and they always have gotten the order correct and delivered within the stated timeframes. 796460

The best site I found for trailer upgrade part. For safety reasons, I needed to upgrade from a 2” shaft (with 2 1/2” adapter) to a 2 1/2” adapter for my equalizer hitch. This part is extremely robust and well made. I also purchased an outdoor shower replacement fixture which is better made and more functional than the OEM fixture. Parts arrived right on time. Very reliable company with competitive rates. Will continue to business with them for all my trailer needs. 792999
