Hitch Reducer Sleeve to Allow Use of 2-Inch Weight Distribution Shank in 2-1/2-Inch Hitch Receiver


Hi there... I have a RAM 2500 with a 2.5 receiver. I need a sleeve that will reduce it to 2 inches. The Reese one I found at Home Depot Model #: 7028711 which is on the Reese website as well says not to be used with a weight distribution system. I am towing aprox. 8000 pounds with camper and gear with a 4 point Equalizer hitch weight and sway control system. Which sleeve would you recommend? Thank you!

To convert your truck's 2-1/2-inch Class V hitch to a 2-inch opening for use with a 2-inch weight distribution shank you can use Reese part # 58102. This reducer sleeve is fully compatible with weight distribution systems and other 2-inch hitch-mounted accessories. You can click on the two linked videos for more information.

You will also want to check your hitch's safety ticker to confirm it is rated for use with weight distribution.
