Ordered a Curt shank, with more drop for my new F-250, to fit a Husky dist. hitch, perfectly. Received promptly, and installed the same day! Waiting on the weekend to pull the camper!

Still working great. Would prefer a tighter fit in the receiver, but, other hitches have similar fit. Great product!

Ordered this for my 2016 Ram 3500. The truck is stock but is still higher than the previous 1500. In setting it up for a trailer height and weight distribution hitch height of 19 inches I found that there were still had three holes below the bottom bolt of the hitch. It has worked flawlessly and would recommend this shank. PS. The shank is 9.5 inches from the ground. Still plenty of clearance.

It works as designed. Highly recommended.

Works as expected. Wish there was less “slop”. When not connected to a trailer I can hear it bounce around in my receiver. There are a few entrances that I do drag on. My truck is a stock 2022 ram 3500 dually.


Great company to work with, super easy to find. Ordered the shank on a Monday and received it on Thursday. Would reccomend this company to anyone looking for this stuff..

Still working great we pull our camper every weekend.

Working great pulling a 32 foot travel trailer


Heavy as hell and built to last, having mounted it and the hitch on it, adjusting and then removing, let me tell you this is seriously built and sturdy. I will have confidence in towing my 6500 lb RV from my lifted 4WD (4") utilizing the drop capability of this hitch. Needed 2 1/2 inches more drop and still not using the last three holes of capability.


This was a perfect drop hitch for a 2018 ford f350. Bought to use with a reese weight Distribution system and works great. Good product and a great place to buy!


Very great people to work with


Very easy shopping thanks


Looks well built and strong but could be a tighter fit going into receiver, seems a little loose to me.


So far, product has performed as advertised. This weight distribution hitch shank is made by Curt but I have a Reese hitch. The Reese hitch head fit like they are made for each other. This will allow my travel trailer to be towed in a level position.


Awesome customer service. Called beginning of May to order the drop shank. Asked if I could hay it before May 21st. Got an email same day that it was shipping out and received it 3 days later. Anytime I am bending something for my trailers or towing. This will be the first place I got. Thanks


Just recieved my Curt 8" drop shank for my weight distribution hitch, just what I needed for my lifted truck to be able pull my RV. Awesome Customer service. Thanks again


The shank that came was exactly what I ordered and arrived a day earlier than expected. Works great with my eaz lift weight distribution hitch.


The hitch shank is good quality. I bought for a stock 2018 F350 4 wheel drive. It was actually a little longer than I needed. I probably could have gotten by with the shorter shank.


worked great with a hitch that came with a used camper I got. need this to fit my lifted 3/4 ton truck.


Hitch works very good. No need for the sleeve adapter anymore. Only issue I had was it was too much of a drop. Had to cut about three holes off of the bottom. Otherwise I was hitting ground going into driveways.


We were good with order but it was wrong size i called but they say I had to pay to send it back was hoping yall could exchange it but other than that was happy with it


Great service and very knowledgeable staff at etrailer. Will be shopping here again for sure!


Exactly as advertised. Perfect for what I needed.


Just what I needed for my jayco 23b and 2020 Silverado 2500hd. Perfect drop for my equalizer hitch, trailer rides nice and level.


Shipped quickly, tks.


Works great


Very nice quality!!!!! Very adjustable! !!!


I used the c17132 shank to replace my original 2” camper trailer shank, which was not big enough to fit on my new 2500 ram. It works great. No slack or shake and makes pulling so much better.
