Set it up yesterday and it’s going to do what it’s supposed to. I’m using Curt WD parts and they fit perfectly. Have installed on a 2021 F250. My only complaint is it’s not powder coated it’s painted. The minute I slid it into the hitch, the paint chipped off in large pieces exposing bare metal. It’s surely going to rust so I will not keep it on all the time and just keep some WD-40 on it. If I didn’t need it right away, I would return and go with Curt which is powder coated


Comments
Sorry about the paint. Even powder coated items need maintenance. Here is a help article regarding rust:

Perfect fit for my 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD. Got rid of most of the 'slop' I had using a reducer. I use this to tow Lance 2285 travel trailer. Existing WD hitch fit perfectly. No issues.

I needed a 2 1/2" shank for my Equal-i-zer hitch when I upgraded my truck to a heavy duty. It's well made and exactly what I needed. It took over 4 months to get, but that was no fault of etrailer. It was backordered by the manufacturer. Etrailer kept me constantly updated while I tried to wait patiently. Great customer service as always.

Fast delivery and great product. I was looking for a drop hitch that would allow me to get rid of the reducer sleeve. This worked perfect.

Once Again...Etrailer SAVED the DAY!!!! Just what we needed to tow the Airstream with our "new" tow vehicle (upgraded from 1/2 ton to 3/4 ton). Works beautifully with WDH - perfect solution for the required 5" Drop!...and item came in in Record Time. Thank you for the Excellent product and Service...and Friendship! - Todd A.

I switched from a 2015 f150 2wd to a 2019 f250 4wd The jump in reciever height was significant. Spent a long time trying to figure out what shank I needed. Did a lot of research.. I hated the 2 in shank becuase of the sleeve I'd have to use with my husky centerline ts system. At first I didn't know they even made a drop shank that would fit in 2-1/2 in reciever and still fit on the weight distribution hitch.. I was pleasantly surprised.. so this shank dropped my ball height to 22 inches pretty close to where I needed it to be I thought about getting the curt shank with 8 in drop but would have put the shank closer to the ground then what I wanted.. Haven't hooked up to camper yet but so far so good.. Thanks etrailer..

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

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

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.

When I bought my Equalizer trailer hitch I had a Ram 1500 with a 2" receiver for the hitch. The truck and trailer hooked up as advertised. But I was very concerned that my trailer weight and tongue weight were at the maximum capacity for my truck, so we bought a Super Duty F-250. Problems were two fold, one the receiver on my F-250 is 2-1/2"; and two, with using a reducing sleeve , the top of my ball was 3" higher than my trailer. I called etrailer and was told I needed a different shank. They recommended a EQ90-02-4900. I received the new shank yesterday and installed it. The top of the ball is now 3" lower, exactly where it needs to be for my trailer. Plus, the new shank is 2-1/2” and fits my trucks receiver. I did not realize that the hitch pin lock I bought from etrailer isn't long enough to fit the 2-1/2" receiver, so now I am waiting for that delivery. Good product and good people!

Item was well packaged and shipped out in a very timely manner! This 2.5" shank was just what I needed for my E2 round bar hitch to fit on my new GMC 2500HD truck.

I ordered this after I purchased a new pickup with a 2.5 inch receiver. The item arrived on time and fits my vehicle snugly! It also attached to my equalizer Hitch without any problems.

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.

After a year, the shank is still working great!

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!

The hitch was delivered on time. It fits my f250 truck with a2.5" receiver. I'm very sturdy and well built. Packaging could have been a little more substantial. The hitch was received with a lot of scratches, but nothing that could not be fixed. I only recommendation is a more substantial package due to the weight of the hitch.

This was exactly what I needed to lower my hitch so that my Ram 2500 lined up perfectly the way my Ram 1500 had.

Went to a 2 1/2 inch hitch from a 2 inch. Not sure what brand my equalization hitch is but the ball head fit with no problem. Trying to use the sleeve on the 2 inch just didn't work well.
