The product is exactly as described, 48 inches of raw steel ready for fabrication. Any typical 2x2 inch receiver hitch accessory will fit in this just fine. The 48 inch length described is spot on, although the length may be unnecessary for most builds, but each project is unique in its own way. The finish is anything but (hence the use of the word "raw") so keep in mind that the cut edges can be very sharp and that metal shavings and burrs may be present on or inside of the tube, the protective collar on the end with the predrilled hole for the pin is roughly welded in place and depending on your standards may have to be touched up, but will also work just fine as is. I intend to use this product as the tongue on an offroad trailer to tow behind my Jeep with a Max Coupler (in comparison to a ball hitch which only has free movement side to side, a Max Coupler is a fully articulating hitch with free movement side to side, up and down, and also rotationally, allowing the trailer to move completely independently to the tow vehicle while trekking through rough terrain) A Max Coupler requires a 2 inch receiver on both the tow vehicle and the trailer to be towed, so this product will work perfectly as the tongue on my trailer. 456733

What can I say, quality 2" square tubing with collar and proper sized hole for 2" hitch receiver duties. I used the steel tube to fabricate a front tire mount for my 1-ton truck. I included a photo of my finished project. Worked perfectly. etrailer shipped quickly as usually. the price was priced right, even considering the shipping. Part suppliers around my location never could get such part so I got it my self from etrailer. Thanks. 513500

This 48" extension is posted on your site as 2 inches. I thought 2 inches meant OUTSIDE DIMENSIONS, NOT INSIDE. There is only one 5/8 inch hole drilled on one end, none on the other end. I have to find a 2-inch sleeve at least 14 inches long to use this extension and drill a 5/8 inch hole. It will cost me too much to return it after paying shipping to receive it. I 493201


Comments

The part you refer to is a fabrication part, meant to provide a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. It isnt intended as, nor is it referred to in the product description as a hitch extender.

I will not be using this devise here in San Diego. We are taking it to our other house in Baja, Mexico. We will be using it to launch the small boat into the bay. This devise will assist in keeping the water away from the truck. Can show pic' later when we head down Feb 8. Thanks for the quick arrival. 235944

Ask the Experts about this Tow Ready Hitch Fabrication Parts
Do you have a question about this Hitch Fabrication Part?


  • Can a 48 Inch Long Combo Bar be Used to Make a Hitch Extender
  • Combo bar # 80948 is used in hitch fabrication and is not technically an extender. It has no hitch pin hole to secure to the receiver on the trailer hitch. The longest regular extender that we have for a 2 inch trailer hitch is # RP11004 at 18 inches long. If you used it with a super extra long ball mount, # 80232, then you would have a total of 34 inches of extension. Please note this will severely reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch. The use of the extension alone...

  • Outside Dimensions Of Tow Ready Combo Bar
  • The Tow ready Combo Bar, part # 80948 you asked about has a 2-1/2 inch X 2-1/2 inch outside dimension with a 2 inch trailer receiver opening. This bar is 48 inches long. I have attached a product review video you can check out.

  • Product Comparison Between the Curt and Tow Ready Combo Bars
  • Besides the price difference the only real other difference is that the # C49480 and the # 80948 are made by separate companies. The Curt combo bar is # C49480 and the Tow Ready combo bar is # 80948. Tow Ready is a brand that is owned by a larger parent company named Cequent. These companies compete with each other in the trailering market so it isn't uncommon to see two similar parts with different pricing. To answer your question, some customers prefer one brand name over the...

  • Load Rating For Tow Ready Combo Bar With 2 Inch Trailer Receiver
  • I spoke with my contact at Tow Ready about the Tow Ready Combo Bar, part # 80948. This is a 48 inch long bar that is used to fabricate 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. They told me this bar is used when they manufacture hitches with capacities up to 12,000 lbs so it should work great for you and the trailer you mentioned. This bar has a raw finish and can be welded.

  • Can Tow Ready Combo Bar # 80948 be Inserted into a 2-1/2 Inch Receiver
  • The outside width of combo bar # 80948 is slightly less than 2-1/2 inches so it would fit in a 2-1/2 inch receiver. But this bar is meant for hitch fabrication and not meant as a hitch extender. For a 48 inch extender that is rated for use as an actual extender and that already has the safety chain loops welded to it you could use # RP45018. Of course there is quite a bit of difference in cost.

  • What is the Outside Height and Width of Tow Ready Combo Bar 80948
  • Combo bar # 80948 has an outside width and height of 2-1/2 inches. I have included a link to a video review of this part for you.

  • Is the Tow Ready Combo Bar # 80948 2 inch by 2 inch All the Way Through
  • Yes, the inside dimensions of the entire length of the Tow Ready Combo Bar # 80948 that you referenced is 2 inch by 2 inch.

  • Wall Thickness of Tow Ready Combo Bar 80948 and Curt Combo Bar C49480
  • I went to our warehouse to measure the actual wall thickness of the Tow Ready Combo Bar # 80948 and the similar Curt # C49480, both of which are 48-inches long with a raw finish. With a digital caliper I measured the wall thickness of the Tow Ready combo bar as 0.20 to 0.21-inches and the Curt was the same. Since these items are not machined there may be some slight unit to unit variances, especially if you are talking about thousandths of an inch. On the receiver end of these bars...
