  • Solution for Additional Clearance With Thule T2 Pro Bike Rack on Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    One way to gain additional clearance so your Thule T2 # TH83GC would be to use an extension like the Hitch Extender For 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver 7" # HE06. Keep in mind, this will reduce the capacity of your hitch by 50%. This is the shortest extension we have. Another option would be the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 5" Drop/Rise - 16K # 325-GH-503. This shank measures 9-1/8" from the hitch pin hole to the end of the receiver. The only potential issue...

  • 2" Hitch Receiver Adapter For Raising The Receiver To Ensure That A Cargo Carrier Does Not Drag
    I have a couple options for you to consider for hauling a Cargo Carrier # CC-100 higher on your 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe. First the Roadmaster High-Low Adapter # RM-048-6 can be used to raise your receiver height 6". This adapter will be limited to only 200lbs of tongue weight as it is designed for flat towing where there is generally no tongue weight. Since you would be using it with a cargo carrier its maximum rating of 400lbs drops 50%. Next is the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable...

  • How to Increase Clearance for Hollywood Racks RV Rider Bike Rack on 5th Wheel Trailer
    To help gain some extra clearance of the Hollywood Racks RV Rider Bike Rack # HLY64FR with the spare tire on your Jeep as well as your 2022 Montana 5th wheel I recommend checking out the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount # 325-GH-503. This will allow your bike rack to sit further out by 7-1/8" and has massive 2K tongue and 16K towing weight ratings so you won't have to worry about these holding up with the 5th wheel application. I do recommend picking up the Anti-Rattle...

  • Recommended Adapter for Additional Clearance With Hitch Mounted Cargo Basket
    Using an adapter like the Malone # MPG544 or Flint Hill Goods # FHG75VR will get you the extra clearance you need so you don't hit your cargo basket on the ground. However, any adapter like this is going to reduce the capacity of your hitch by 50% which is less than ideal. If the hitch on your 2001 Tacoma had a 500 lb tongue weight capacity like the # e64AR that would mean you could only carry 250 lbs. This can be pretty limiting since you also have to factor in the weight of your cargo...

  • Could Replacement Gen-Y Shank 325-GH-503 be Used for Flat Towing
    Yes, you could use the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount # 325-GH-503 with a flat towing setup like you mentioned and it would give you right at the amount of drop you are looking for.

  • Recommended Hitch Reducer from 2-1/2 Inch Hitch to 2 Inch with 5 or 6 Inch Drop for 2016 Ram 2500
    A high-low adapter like the Roadmaster High Low Adapter for Tow Bars - 2-1/2" Hitches - 4" Rise/Drop - 10K GTW # RM-058-4 is designed for use when flat towing which is pulling a vehicle behind a motorhome. The reason an adapter is needed is because tow bars that connect the vehicles need to be within 3 inches of level for safety. I've attached an article to assist. It sounds like you are looking for something for the back of your truck that allows for a drop for towing or accessories....

  • Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter Capacity
    The Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter # RM-077-2 has a gross towing weight of 10,000 lbs and tongue weight of 400 lbs. This is intended for flat towing, otherwise the adapter will reduce your hitch capacity by 50%. Since you're using a winch I recommend the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount # 325-GH-303 instead. This will have no impact on your hitch capacity and has a 10,000 lb gross towing weight with a 1,500 lb max tongue weight capacity. If you need an even higher...

  • Does the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount Reduce a Hitches Capacity?
    It won't reduce it at all. The Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount item # 325-GH-503 has a 2,000 lbs tongue weight limit you will want to stay under. This double ball mount works great in these type of situations.

  • Recommended Ball Mount for Extra Height on a Front Mounted Hitch
    I have a great solution for your cooler basket fishing rod holder. It is the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount item # 325-GH-503 for 5" of height or item # 325-GH-304 for 7-1/2". These ball mounts attach to any 2" receiver and will give you multiple height adjustment options.

  • Troubleshooting Bike Rack Hitting Driveway with etrailer Hitch Installed on 2012 Toyota RAV4
    Thank you for your purchase of the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98864 for your 2012 Toyota RAV4! The RockyMounts BackStage Bike Rack # RKY10002 is a great bike rack but it does stick out a bit further than a standard bike rack since it has that swinging arm. I have some options for you but the best thing you can do with your current setup is to enter and exit your driveway diagonally to help with that clearance. You can add a high-low adapter but these will reduce the weight capacity...

  • Can Gen-Y Shank 325-GH-503 Be Used with Weight Distribution System
    Yes, the Gen-Y Shank # 325-GH-503 for 2-inch hitches is plenty sturdy to allow use with any 2-inch weight distribution shank. Serious steel construction and both primed and powder-coat finishes means high 16K towing capacity and 2000-lbs of tongue weight capacity as well as a long-lasting finish.

  • Solution for Using Rhino-Rack T-Load While Towing Jet Ski Trailer With 2022 Forester Wilderness
    In order to be able to tow your trailer while using your # RTL002 with your 2022 Subaru Forester I recommend the # 325-GH-503. The stacked receivers will let you install the T-Load first and then add the appropriate ball mount underneath with the rise you need for the trailer. This has a 5" rise with an overall height of 8". If by not enough clearance you meant you need 5" of clearance between the ball mount and the T-Load, the # 325-GH-504 would give you additional clearance. However,...

  • Hitch Extension For Using Gen-Y Stacked Receiver Behind a 2019 Tiffin Allegro Red 33AA Motorhome
    I do see what you are talking about Aaron on the Replacement Shank # 325-GH-303. We do have the Gen-Y Extension # GY89SR which will give you a 14" extension but do understand it will reduce your receivers capacity by 50%. If this is an issue we do have the 16K Shank # 325-GH-503 which is slightly longer. This stacked receiver is 6-1/8" from the center of the rear hole to the back of the stacked receivers. The # 325-GH-303 is 5-5/8" so it is only going to be 1/2" difference.
