Replacement Shank for Blue Ox Aventa LX 7445 Tow Bar


I have the Blue Ox Aventa LX 7445, I was looking at getting the ball and socket replacement shank. I will be receiving the BX84-0051 as the replacement this part going to fit my existing tow bar...its the 7445 not the 7335...

I spoke with my contact at Blue Ox regarding your Aventa LX 7445 Tow Bar and the Short Hitch Connector Assembly # BX84-0051 that you mentioned. She stated that this assembly is technically compatible and will work with your tow bar, but it will reduce its capacity to 6,500 pounds.

Since your Blue Ox Aventa LX 7445 is rated at 10,000 pounds, a better option is with the Standard 2" Hitch Connector Assembly # 84-0186. My contact confirmed that this will work as a replacement shank for your Aventa LX and will also maintain its 10,000 pound rating.
