Extending a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch and Adapting a 2-1/2 Inch Hitch to a 2 Inch


Can I use this product in a 2inch receiver and if so what product would I use to do this?

Expert Reply:

The Titan hitch extension, # RP45292, is designed to fit 2-1/2 inch receiver. The other end has a 2 inch receiver opening.

If you have a 2-1/2 inch receiver and want to drop down to a 2 inch without using a long extension, you can use a reducer sleeve, # 58102.

If you wanted to go the other way, adapt a 2 inch receiver for use with 2-1/2 inch accessories, there is no adapter that will work.

If you need to extend a 2 inch receiver we have several available. Please note that by using an extension you will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. I have included a link to them for you.

Another option if you do not want to reduce the tongue weight capacity is to use a super extra long ball mount. I have included a link to these as well.
