Extended Shank for a Weight Distribution System


Need an extended shank for my weight distribution system. Need to tow my toy hauler with the tailgate down. Trailer weighs 7000 empty and around 9000 loaded.

The longest extended shank we offer will be the Equal-i-zer # EQ90-02-4500, which is 18" long, has a maximum tongue weight capacity of 1,400 lbs, fits 2" x 2" receivers and offers up to a 7" rise or 3" drop. Equal-i-zer # EQ90-02-4600 is similar, with the only difference being it offers an 8" rise or 3" drop.

I've added links to video reviews of each of these shanks for you to take a look at.

I have a Ram 2500 and a 9,000 GTW trailer. Can I use the EQ90-02-4600 18" shank with a hitch adapter / reducer from 2 1/2" to 2" and the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control? If my tongue weight is 1,200 or less? and are these items compatible with one another? Thanks 76802

Yes, the Equal-i-zer WD Shank # EQ90-02-4600 is perfectly compatible with your Husky Center Line System and there's no problem using a reducer sleeve on your 2-1/2" receiver for this setup. 62596
