Recommended Drop Shank for Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution System on 2017 Ford F-250 4x4


Good Morning, I have a question and am hoping you can put me in the ball park. I bought a 2018 Keystone Hideouts 31RBDS in OCT. at the Time I had a 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 Crew All terrain package and Campers World sold me a Equalizer WDS and set it up. I have since bought a 2017 F250 4X4 and I can no longer hook up to the trailer without have it look like a upside down V not really that bad but close. I know I need to get a new shank, for the system, but need to know what and if they even make a suitable shank. Thank you for the help

Since you have the "upside down V" it sounds like you need a shank that has a lower adjustability. If you have a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver then I recommend the Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank - 12" Long # EQ90-02-4400 if you want to stay brand loyal.

Weight distribution shanks for your system can be interchangeable so you can use a different brand. I personally would go with the similar Curt # C17124 which is rated higher and at a good price point.

If you have a specific drop you need or have a 2-1/2 inch receiver on your new truck, let me know and I'll be happy to assist. I've linked the page to all your replacement shank options and have included an article on ball mount height to assist.
