This is a beast. Solid metal, heavy and heavy duty. Fits like it should and send very strong. Pulls a camper without problems 639998

This was exactly the drop-in replacement shank I needed when I found out that my new truck came with a 2.5" hitch receiver. My Reese trunnion bar WD head fit with no issues and with the size and weight of this thing, it's hard to imagine it could ever be the weak point of my hitch setup. 320235

Product shipped sooner than expected. Needed a 2-1/2 shank with for new tire vehicle. Fit my needs with more drop and a little more length on shank. Hitch head fit without shims. Happy camper! Going glamping. 821760

Had a 2" receiver with the adapter sleeve on my f250. Too much play in the receiver and it was bending the hitch pins. Upgraded to this 2.5" shank and there's much less movement. I haven't towed with it yet but there's a noticeable improvement 820451

Massive hitch for massive towing......this thing works great......only wish it had another inch or two do drop for my lifted truck 815001

Solid piece and works well with our anti-sway system. Only complaint is the gap in the holes. If the hole went up to be level with the insert point, it would allow full adjustability. Now it has about a 6 to 7 inch gap in the middle of the piece and we needed the ball to be in that gap. Otherwise, solid piece that is secure. 695622

I purchased this product to work with my new Reese Steady Flex hitch,( part# 66561) as my truck has a 2.5" receiver. It worked extremely well and made for a perfect fit to my truck. 542541

Extremely heavy duty product that was exactly what I need for my 2016 RAM 2500. I tow a 32 ft 1955 Spartan Mansion travel trailer with a Reese weight distribution hitch. The trailer is by design low to the ground so I needed the extra drop this shank is made for. Product arrived 4 days after I placed my order. Packaging was great and this was the lowest price I could find anywhere. Couldn't be happier with my purchase! 394746

In moving from a 2003 F250 to a 2017 Ram 2500, the height of the receiver hitch increased by 4 inches creating a problem with my WD hitch. My WD head was already mounted in the lowest holes of the old shank and when moved to the new truck, the ball was (surprise!) 4 inches too high to tow the travel trailer level. I needed a different weight distributing shank to address this problem as well as to address the problem created by the larger receiver (2 1/2 inches) on the new truck to avoid use of a reducing sleeve. So this shank solved both problems! As others have noted, I did have to grind a bit of the coating in a couple of places to get the shank to completely fit into the receiver - not a big deal to me. It does get the WD head down where it needs to be to tow level and it is a heavy, well made piece. Be advised the WD head mounting hole spacing on this shank is 1 1/4 inches and some of the older WD heads (like mine) were 1 inch - so you may need a new WD head as well. 374387

This shank is an excellent heavy duty Reese unit. Too heavy for the shipping box! I need this for my 2.5 inch hitch on my F-250. 361755

The shank is excellent - it does exactly what I would have expected it to. It is actually better than the original. The original shank on my 2004 Super Duty caused my 22' enclosed trailer to ride at an angle and the rear of the trailer scrape the ground. With this shank, the trailer is dead even, no more scraping - perfect. The Reducer Sleeve from 2-1/2" to 2" leaves a bit to be desired. As has been reported this is not a "snug" fit. Because it's not a "snug fit" after a year the pinhole is showing signs of wear. I am glad I went with the new shank vs. relying solely on the reducer sleeve to tow my trailer. 344586

Excellent product. Very good quality. Couldn't be more satisfied. 306910

The pin clip would not slide in place with the shank in the hitch. Your customer service represent suggested grinding off part of the power coating to make the holes line up. The suggestion worked but also had to grind some metal. Not a very good product. 277390

Stout. Definitely a good upgrade if your truck sits a bit higher, I drive a 16 Ram 2500. 276919

I haul RV trailers comericially. The Reese Titan weight distributing hitch shank is an excellent product. I use either this shank with the dist. head attached or my Reese fifth wheel hitch with every single trailer that I deliver. I never have to worry about my hitches, I know that they are secure. I purchased all my hitches including my fifth wheel wiring harness and my backup cam, from etrailer. I,ve always received good service and prompt delivery. 249611

I did quite a bit of research on and off etrailer.com prior to sending some questions to etrailer.com before my purchase. I received a speedy and helpful response which sealed the deal. My order arrived quickly, and the product is as described. Perfect. Time to go camping again! Thank you, etrailer.com! 205673
