These are pics of RP3344 installed on my 2011 Dodge Ram. The hitch is still not perfect. I need two more inches of drop to have the trailer level. It is inclined up as it sets on the ball rather than flat. Not e the truck is real close to level.




by:

The eTrailer team was very helpful to work with!




by:

Outstanding service and communication. I called and told the customer service person what i needed in a drop down shank. He reviewed and confirmed my measurements. Item was in stock and easily attainable. They pulled item and shipped it within hours.
etrailer price gaurantee is REAL! I found same item for less money. I followed instructions on providing proof. Almost immediately etrailer credited my account for the difference plus some. Just great service and communication all around. Well done etrailer.




by:

Solidly built. I needed a hitch with more drop and range, this one worked perfect.


Comments
Going to Yukon Denali XL with larger wheels and a through-the-bumper hitch vs. Under the bumper a hitch with more was necessary. This one has alot of adjustments available for that perfect tow height and is built like an anvil. It works!

I needed to replace the Hitch Shank to better accommodate our new/used Airstream and F150 truck. I had chosen the same brand as the stabilizer hitch I had but that part, unknown to me, was on a long lead time. George at e-trailer noticed this and contacted me with the delayed delivery information but also make 2 recommendations that could be delivered in a few days. I choose one, placed the order, cancelled the previous order (thanks to Mackenzie) and it arrived a couple days later and it was exactly what I needed. I am now able to make a trip this weekend for a few days to a nearby park in difference to winterizing the trailer and putting it away for the season. I consider this excellent service. Thanks to George and Mackenzie. And to all with whom I did not communicate who got the part to me. Cheers

The customer service is what keeps me coming back to E-Trailer. Karen did the math so I could order the right drop shank (this one). It is just what I needed and works flawlessly. Thanks again Karen, I appreciate your time and attention.

Good solid product. The box it shipped in was trashed as was the brake controller box that was also inside. Not the best packaging but oh well. E Trailer is still a great source and I would definitely use again.

  • Weight Distribution Shank For Truck With 6-Inch Lift Using Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution
    I went to our warehouse and matched an Equal-i-zer 10K head to a couple shanks for you. The shank I recommend is the Reese Weight Dist Shank, part # RP3344. When the head is placed in the bottom holes the distance from the ball platform on the head to the top of the shank that slides in your hitch is 8-1/4 inches. That is a little more than the 7 inches you said you needed at minimum. The holes are spaced 1-1/4 inches apart so the next distance form ball platform to the top of the shank...

  • What is the Diameter of the Bolt Holes on Reese Weight Dist Shank # RP3344
    The bolt holes on the Reese Weight Dist Shank, # RP3344, measure 3/4 inches in diameter and have a spacing of 1-1/4 inches on center .

  • How to Determine the Correct Drop for a Weight Distribution Shank
    I have attached a help article on how to determine the rise or drop you need for a ball mount. Basically, you will want to park your truck and trailer on flat ground. First, measure from the ground to the top of the trailer hitch receiver opening. Next, measure from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler. If the trailer hitch receiver opening is taller than the bottom of the trailer coupler, then the difference between the two measurements is the amount of drop you will need in...

  • Reese Weight Distribution Shank Recommendation for a System That Needs 6-1/2 inches of Drop
    Based on the dimensions you gave for your truck's hitch height and the height of the bottom of the coupler of your trailer you need about a drop of 6-1/2 inches. The Reese Shank part # RP3344 that you referenced has a maximum drop of 6-3/8 inches when used in the lowest position with a round bar setup or 6-1/8 when used with a trunnion system. That would be almost exactly the drop you would need so this shank would work very well for you and will allow you to tow your trailer level. I...

  • Choosing Weight Distribution Shank with the Correct Rise or Drop
    To choose the correct rise/drop needed for weight distribution shank, you will need to determine the height of the trailer coupler when it is level. If the top of the trailer hitch receiver is higher than this measurement (which is most likely the case with your Suburban) you will need a shank that offers a drop equal to the difference. I have linked to a help article that shows how to measure for the rise or drop needed, as well as link to a video showing how to measure for a weight...

  • Can a Reese Weight Distribution Shank be Used with a Curt Weight Distribution Head
    In terms of compatibility, it depends on which components of a weight distribution system you are referring to. For example, Curt spring bars will not fit in a Reese head nor will Reese bars fit in a Curt head. But, if you are talking about the shank, a Curt or Reese head will fit each others shank. The holes on a Reese shank, # RP3344, are spaced the same as those on a Curt shank; 1-1/4 inches on center.

  • Reese Weight Distribution Shank # RP3344 Recommendation for a 2001 Dodge 2500 Quad Cab
    Since you need about 11 inches of drop the Reese Weight Dist Shank # RP3344 that you referenced would be a good choice for you as it has 11 inches of drop. I attached a review video on how to measure for the right amount of drop with a weight distribution system. I also attached an FAQ article on weight distribution systems for you to check out.

  • How to Choose the Correct Weight Distribution Shank Rise or Drop
    To determine what kind of rise or drop you need in your Weight Distribution (WD) shank you first need to measure from the ground to the top of the inside of the hitch receiver on your 2002 Ford Excursion, and then from the ground to the bottom of your trailer coupler. Please be sure that both vehicles are on level ground and your trailer is sitting level. If the hitch receiver height is the larger number then you need a drop, but if your trailer coupler is higher you need a rise. To figure...

  • Recommended Drop Weight Distribution Shank for Use with a EAZ Elite Weight Distribution System
    The bolt hole diameter and vertical spacing of a weight distribution shank is fairly universal across different brands. However, in order to be sure the EAZ Elite system you have now uses this same top to bottom bolt hole spacing then you will need to do some measuring. As long as the distance between the vertical bolt holes on your shank is 1-1/4" apart and the holes are 3/4" diameter then I recommend the Reese Weight Dist Shank part # RP3344 which offers up to 8-5/8" of drop. I have...

  • How To Choose New Weight Distribution System Shank for Lifted Truck
    In order to choose a new weight distribution system shank you need to measure your rise/drop requirements just as you would when selecting a ball mount. This measurement is from the ground to the bottom of the coupler lip on the trailer while level and then from the ground to the top inside edge of the receiver tube on the vehicle. The difference will give you the correct rise/drop. The Reese Weight Dist Shank part # RP3344 for example offers up to a 7-5/8" drop. I have attached a full...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Shank for Truck and Trailer 9" Apart
    It sounds like you need a 9" drop for your weight distribution shank. I have attached a list of all options below. You will need to know what size hitch you have as well as whether or not your system uses round or trunnion springs bars in order to find the correct one. The Reese Weight Dist Shank part # RP3344 offers the most drop for a 2" hitch.

  • Will Reese Weight Dist Shank Bolt Hole Spacing Match Up with Older Head Unit
    The Reese Weight Dist Shank # RP3344 is 2" square and the bolt holes are 1-1/4" apart on center so as long as your 1980s weight distribution head meets the 2" width spec it sounds like you'll be just fine, although you'll only have 1 bolt hole's worth of adjustment since your bolt hole spacing will span 3 bolt holes. Attached is a review video for you to check out.

  • Is Drop Shank Needed with 2017 Dodge Ram 2500 Towing with Pro Series WD System
    Whether or not you need a longer drop shank with your Pro Series weight distribution system part # 49570 depends on your trailer coupler and hitch height more than anything. You need to determine how much drop you need and compare that to what the # 49570 is capable of. This system can do a drop of up to 2 inches. Measure from the top of your hitch opening on your truck down to the ground and then measure from the bottom lip of your coupler down to the ground when it's level. If that distance...

  • Is Sway Control Needed with a Weight Distribution System
    Not all weight distribution systems come with sway control. Sway control is usually a good idea, but if you do not experience much sway when you are towing, then you do not need to add it. If you want to add sway control, then you may be interested in the Friction Sway Control Kit, # 83660. The head of your weight distribution system must have an additional ball hole to the side of the main hitch ball to accommodate the sway control bar (see photo). I have attached an installation video...

  • Need Reese Weight Distribution Shank with 6-Inches of Drop and 1-Inch Hole Spacing
    Based on the hitch and coupler heights you referenced you will need a weight distribution shank with about 6-inches of drop to allow your hitched trailer to remain level. The Reese shank you referenced, part # RP3215, does offer 6-3/4-inches of drop if you have a round bar system and 5-3/4-inches of drop if its a trunnion bar type. This shank's hole size is 3/4-inch diameter but its hole spacing is 1-1/4-inches apart. The same holds for Reese shank # RP3344 and all other current production...

  • Shank with 6 Inches of Drop for Reese Weight Distribution and a Lifted Truck
    For your lifted truck and trailer I recommend using Reese weight distribution shank # RP3344 which has a maximum drop of 7-5/8 inches when used with Strait-Line system # RP66074. This shank can only be used in the drop position. There isn't a 2-1/2 inch shank that will have enough drop to tow your trailer level.

  • Weight Distribution Hitch Recommendation for Catering Trailer Weighing 9,000 lbs
    The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. Since your trailer is going to be...

  • Shank with More Drop for a Reese Steadi-Flex Weight Distribution System
    There are certain shanks that are compatible with the Reese Steadi-Flex weight distribution systems such as # RP66560. You can use # RP3344 which will get you to a maximum of 7-5/8 inches drop. The shank is available separately but cannot be swapped out for the one that comes in the kit.

  • Is Reese Weight Distribution Shank # RP3344 Compatible with SteadiFlex WD System
    Yes, the Reese Weight Dist Shank part # RP3344 that you referenced is compatible with the Reese Steadi-Flex weight distribution system part # RP66560.

  • Will Reese Shank part # RP3344 Replace Shank Part # RP54970 and Do 7 inches of Drop
    Yes, the shank part # RP3344 that you referenced will work as a replacement for the shank part # RP54970 that you have and would allow you to have around a 7 inch drop like what you would need.
    view full answer...
  • Selecting Replacement Shank for Reese Weight Distribution System
    If the adjustment range on the head/shank of your weight distribution system does not allow you to lower it enough for the trailer to remain level when hitched then you will need to select a new shank that has 4-inches more drop than the one you're using now. For a Reese trunnion type WD system like # RP66084 which you referenced you could use a shank like # RP3344 which offers up to 8-5/8-inches of drop. All WD shanks are shown on the linked page.

  • How to Level Trailer with Weight Distribution System
    You may be able to level your hitched trailer by substituting a different shank for your weight distribution system. I have included a link to our main page for weight distribution shanks. The Reese shank that has the most drop for a trunnion bar system is # RP3344. At most it is capable of 7-5/8 inches of drop when used with a trunnion bar system. You will want to measure your truck from the ground to the ballmount when your truck and trailer are on level ground. I have included a link...

  • Reese Weight Distribution Shank with the Most Drop
    None of the Reese weight distribution shanks have a drop of 17 inches. The longest drop comes from # RP3344 and it has a max drop of 8-5/8 inches when used with a round bar system, 7-58 inches drop when used with a trunnion bar system. I have included a link to all of the Reese weight distribution shanks we carry.

  • 8 inch Drop Shank Recommendation for Reese Weight Distribution System
    The Reese Strait-Line system part # RP66074 that you referenced would do great for a setup that has a 1,000 lb tongue weight as it has a tongue weight range of 600 lbs - 1,200 lbs and features the only sway control on the market designed to help prevent sway before it starts. For a shank that will let you do 8 inches of drop you would want the part # RP3344.
