The first one they shipped was the wrong one. Called customer service on
Wednesday had right one by Friday. Exchange/return was a minor inconvenience. I will give them great marks for their expedient handling as I needed it to set up hitch for weekend hunting excursion. Went from crossover to truck, thus the need for more drop. Went together with hitch head in about an hour and I was on my way. Thanks for the great service.

Just what I needed to raise the ball to the proper height

Outstanding response, explanations, and service.

Thank you,

Part is exactly as expected and came in on time. Price was a full $70 cheaper (including shipping) than direct from the manufacturer. I'm (again) a happy customer.

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


Turned out, to be just what I needed. I have 5.5ft bed in my truck. Pulling my trailer now allows me to drive with the tailgate down and my dirt bike in the bed. Only thing to keep an eye on is your turning radius, it's not as tight. Overall, well built. But if the hitch pin hole was 2 inches longer, it would help with the turning radius. I like it.

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


Bought this longer hitch cause my tailgate would not go down all the way to let me dogs in when my trailer was connected. With this longer hitch tailgate goes all the way down and getting better clearance when backing.. It’s a win win, well worth the price. Highly recommended

Great for those that need a bit more room between the trailer jack and tailgate while hitched up!

Two thumbs up! Raised my hitch up exactly where I needed it to be to tow my travel trailer at the right height.

This hitch extension works great. I am able to lower my tail gate down now. I have zero issues with it.

Love that I can keep the tailgate down. Also can take sharper turns backing up!

Easy switch over to longer shank .
No
major adjustments on WDH setting
Now can open tailgate all the way.
Did need to lengthen safety chains.

Longer hitch shank has been great. No difference in towing. Able to open tailgate fully.

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


I purchased this to replace my 12” long hitch. This allowed me to keep my tailgate down and pull my camper. The hitch came in 2 days and took 10 min to swap the head from my Husky Weight Distribution Hitch. Still has the same 14,000lb rating as the 12” I took off. Of course my wife and kids were happy that we were able to take the golf cart for the first time with the camper. Great product! For reference, my truck is a 2015 Sierra 2500HD duramax pulling a 2018 Cruiser Embrace EL280 @ 6360lb dry.

Perfect solution for the new travel trailer. I needed to raise the ball height for proper setup of my WD hitch and this product was perfect for the task! Etrailer ordering was easy, delivery was fast and all is well for our next trip.

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


I have a 2500 gmc sierra short bed and travel trailer. We purchased a golf cart and wanted to take the cart with us as when camping sites allow golf carts. Since my bed is 78" long I have to take the front cover of the cart off ( ezgo rxv) and I have to remove the tailgate because there is not enough room to lower it because of my trailer's electric Jack stand. My original equalizer weight distribution shaft is 12" so this gives me an extra 6" so I can leave my tailgate on and down. I no longer need to take the front cover off of the cart and the rear wheels are completely on the truck. Thanks George

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


I'm now able to open the tailgate of my truck with the trailer attached. Side effects of using the longer shank are; power cable almost too short and original safety chains were too short and had to be replaced. But, the goal to be able to open the tailgate with the trailer attached was accomplished.

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


I purchased this from etrailer because it was 'authentic' and USA Made. There are others that claim to be the Equalizer brand but Country of Origin was not USA. Equalizer proudly claims USA. So for this product I give 5 stars. However.....

Shipping is listed as 2 day shipping. I feel this is a little misleading. My order was placed on 4/16 (Saturday) with a delivery date of 4/19. I understand it was a weekend so it wouldn't go out until Monday. Product shipped late on 4/18 but didn't receive an origin scan until 4/19. Was finally delivered on 4/21 - 2 days after it was shipped. So technically, they are correct - received it 2 days after it was 'shipped' (well really 3 days). Not 2 days from when it was ordered.

So if you are counting on that delivery date listed at time of order, in my opinion, don't.

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


Toughest shanks on the planet that we have found for our customers come from etrailer and Equalizer (Progress Mfg). Don't let trying to save a few bucks put your rig at risk like the cast iron drawbar did in the photo below that was sent to me by a customer. If you buy the cheapest shanks, make sure you have good safety chains you will likely need them. Get the best from etrailer, Equalizer.

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


It works great. I bought this longer shank so I could drop the tailgate of my truck with the camper attached. It is compatible with my fastway E2…..same bolt pattern. It moved the ball 6” farther out from the truck. I also took the combo for a test drive, gmc 1500 CarbonPro and Apex Nano 213, and I really could not feel any difference, which is perfect.

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


I ordered an 18" shank on May 11,2022 and it was delivered on May 17,2022. The problem is they sent me the wrong item. I notified them on the 17th and they said they would send the correct part out and provide me with information to send the incorrect part back. I called this morning May 24,2022 and they still cannot tell me when the correct item will be shipped. If you need your parts fast and correct you may want to consider another vendor. I will update this rating when I finally get the correct part.

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


Totally satisfied with price, shipping and quality. Solved my tailgate problem, while still maintaining the integrity of the Equalizer WDH system. The additional 6” allows me to drop the tailgate while still hooked to the trailer. Thanks for the prompt shipping




by:

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


The new shank appears to meet all my needs. I will be able to lower my tailgate when hooked up to my Travel Trailer. I'm excited to try it out on our first camping trip in April. The adjustment was easy to match the necessary height for my hitch head that receives the stabilization bars. Tiara on the order desk was friendly, patience and helpful. Thanks, etrailer.

Review from a similar Repl WD Shank in Accessories and Parts


I tow a 21 foot bumper pull camp trailer with a 2011 Chevy Suburban. With the standard length shank in my Equalizer hitch I couldn't open my rear lift gate when hooked up as the gate would strike the power head on my tongue jack. This shank gave me the length I needed for proper clearance. I have used it extensively during 2021 and it works great and is exactly what I needed. Great product!

See what our Experts say about this Equal-i-zer Accessories and Parts

  • Can a Weight Distribution with Sway Control System be Used on Lifted Truck
    You can certainly use a weight distribution system on your lifted truck. The key will be to find a weight distribution shank that offers you enough drop to be able to tow your trailer level. Weight distribution systems are available without a shank so that you can choose the one that works best for you. For example, if you have a trailer that has a loaded and ready to tow tongue weight somewhere around 1,000 pounds, a system like the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution with 4-Point Sway Control...

  • Replacement Shank for Equal-I-zer 4,000 Pound Weight Distribution Systems
    For your 4,000 pound Equal-I-zer weight distribution system I recommend shank # EQ90-02-4340. It has the proper hole diameter to mount the head to the shank (5/8 inch). You can also use # EQ90-02-4240 or # EQ90-02-4140. The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank # EQ90-02-4400 has the mounting holes with a 3/4 inch diameter. The head on your 4K Equal-I-zer system should be using 5/8 inch diameter bolts so it would not work with this shank.

  • Does Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System EQ37041ET Come With a Shank?
    The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution # EQ37041ET does not come with a shank. This system has a tongue weight capacity of up to 400 lbs and there are three shanks compatible with that weight capacity, each of which are 12" long and fit 2" hitches: # EQ90-02-4140 offers up to 7" of rise or 3" of drop # EQ90-02-4240 offers up to 8" of rise or 4" of drop # EQ90-02-4340 offers up to 10" of rise or 6" of drop

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Shank for Equalizer EQ37100ET with More Drop Than Stock Shank
    I do have a solution for you, but you will need to use a weight distribution shank that is compatible with your Equalizer # EQ37100ET weight distribution system and not one that has been altered. I recommend using the Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank - 12" Long - 7" Rise, 3" Drop - 600 to 1,400 lbs TW # EQ90-02-4100, which is compatible with your Equalizer system. This keeps your warranty in tact and is the best solution for this problem. If you need something with more drop then you can...

  • Recommendation For Weight Distribution For R-Pod 171
    When selecting a weight distribution system for your R-Pod 171, the key factor is the tongue weight (TW) of your towing setup. This means the total load of your trailer with all the gear and supplies included. You will also need to add any weight from behind your tow vehicle's rear axle to determine total tongue weight. TW is 10% to 15% of the total weight of your fully loaded trailer. For example: a trailer fully loaded at 3,500-lbs would have a TW of 350-lbs to 525-lbs. Ideally,...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 2016 Ram
    In order to choose the best weight distribution hitch, you will first need to know your total tongue weight. That weight is going to be the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go 2018 R-Pod 180 plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your 2016 Ram. To determine this you can use a scale such as the Sherline # 5780 or by using one of the methods outlined in the help article on determining tongue weight I've linked for you.
