Can an Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution System be Used with a 2-1/2 to 2 Inch Reducer


I bought this and it worked great on my suburban with a 2 inch receiver. I upgraded to a Ram 2500 and the receiver is 2 1/2. Is one of the adapter/reducer sleeves the best option?

The best option would be to replace the shank that came with Equal-I-zer system # EQ37100ET with one that fits directly in a 2-1/2 inch receiver. There are 3 Equal-I-zer options:
# EQ90-02-4900 with 6 inch drop or 10 inch rise # EQ90-02-4800 with 4 inch drop or 8 inch rise # EQ90-02-4700 with 3 inch drop or 7 inch rise

For some 2-1/2 inch hitches the use of a reducer sleeve such as # C45405 will reduce the capacity of the hitch so I would check on that first before getting a sleeve if you would rather go that route over a replacement shank.
